What are cosmetic braces?

These are white or transparent braces designed to be discreet and which are worn to straighten the teeth and improve their appearance and your whole smile. They are worn to correct facial abnormalities such as underbite/overbite, misaligned teeth, crossbite, crowded teeth, and gaps between the teeth as well as other issues. These braces are often known as fast acting braces because they speed up the time in which teeth move into the desired position. They are designed to be unobtrusive and are light and comfortable to wear which means you will feel less self-conscious when you are wearing them.


Six Month Smiles Leeds

These braces are designed to re-position crooked or badly aligned teeth in a six month period – hence their name.  These super-fast braces are an ideal choice for patients requiring treatment faster than the usual 1 to 3 years.

The braces are smaller and lighter than the traditional train track braces and consists of small tooth coloured brackets and wires which blend in with the rest of your teeth and are not noticeable. They use a small amount of force to move your teeth into the correct position. Once the braces have been fitted you will undergo a few adjustments to ensure they are correctly in position.

Dr Hamid is a very experienced Six Months Smiles Leeds provider so you can rest assured your treatment is in great hands. He is involved in both the training, mentoring and advising of other dentists both nationally and internationally in the Six Month Smile system. Aesthetique dental care are one of the few clinics in the UK which are certified to provide fast acting cosmetic braces such as Six Month Smiles Leeds.


Invisalign Leeds

These are an alternative to the Six Month Smiles system and are generally chosen for their aesthetic properties because they are unobtrusive and comfortable. Invisalign are virtually invisible and are usually chosen by people for cosmetic reasons.

These braces are made entirely from transparent plastic which means there are no metal brackets or wires visible. They are designed to be worn 22 hours per day and need to be changed every 2 weeks so they gradually move misaligned teeth to the desired position. It can take many months or even up to a year to realign your teeth.

Dr Hamid is a recognised Platinum Invisalign Leeds provider which means that he is highly experienced at providing Invisalign Leeds treatments. With his wealth of Invisalign knowledge and experience he can help you achieve the perfect smile you have always wanted and give you back confidence in your appearance again.

Hygienist Aberdeen – Queens Road

Hygienist Aberdeen – Queens Road

The best way to ensure the long-term health of your mouth is to combine regular dental check-ups, hygienist appointments and a good oral hygiene routine at home.
Your dental hygienist will professionally clean your teeth (scale and polish) helping to make sure your mouth is fresh and healthy.
Even with regular brushing at home it is impossible to stop the daily build-up of plaque on your teeth which can cause gum irritation, bleeding and bad breath.
When left untreated, tartar build up could potentially lead to the development of gum disease. At your regular appointments, the hygienist can remove this tartar layer.

What will my Hygienist do?
• They will professionally deep clean (scale) and polish your teeth greatly reducing your chances of developing gum disease.
• They can advise and educate you regarding your oral health. – including tips for keeping your mouth, teeth and gums healthy in the long-term.
• They can give recommendations for dental cleaning tools.
• They will keep your mouth (and thus your breath) fresh.
• They could help prevent the need for more involved treatments in the future.
• They could spot the early signs or oral cancers and other dental diseases.
• Some hygienists can also carry out oral assessments, fillings, x-rays, impressions, fissure sealants and fluoride treatments on behalf of the dentist.
A hygienist appointment is a great opportunity for children to be educated regarding their oral health whilst also ensuring their teeth are developing properly.
Your hygienist can also advise you on the impact of your diet and other lifestyle factors including smoking.

Hygienist Aberdeen – Queens Road

Hygienist Knebworth

A dental hygienist is here to professionally clean your teeth, ensuring that your mouth is healthy, free from tartar and that it feels fresh and clean.
Unfortunately, no matter how well you look after your teeth at home, plaque will gradually build up each day. This build-up can’t be removed with a toothbrush alone- hence why a trip to the hygienist is so important.

Your Hygienist can remove this tartar layer before it starts to cause problems such as gum irritation, bleeding and bad breath. Without the regular removal of this tartar layer you are also at an increased risk of developing gum disease.
While some signs of gum disease are quite obvious other people can show no signs at all. When it is left untreated there is the potential for long-term problems including bone recession or tooth loss.

While you should always ensure you brush your teeth twice a day every day, the best way to help keep teeth and gums healthy in the long-term is to visit the hygienist regularly (around every 6 months) in between trips to the dentist.
Your Hygienist will offer the following services:
• They will scale and polish your teeth- professionally deep cleaning them to remove any plaque build-up.
• They can give advice regarding diet, cleaning habits, lifestyle and other ways in which you can improve your oral health.
• They help maintain the health of your gums- detecting any signs of gum disease
• They will help keep your breath fresh.
• They will look out for early signs of oral cancers.

Combined with a good oral hygiene routine- brushing and flossing twice a day- regular trips to the hygienist in between dental appointments are the best way of ensuring that your teeth stay healthy and strong.

As you would visit the Dentist twice a year, you should also aim to visit your Hygienist at 6 monthly intervals- unless otherwise directed.
Your Hygienist offers the following services:

• To professionally deep clean and polish your teeth (otherwise known as scaling and polishing). This helps to remove any plaque build-up, greatly reducing your chances of developing gum disease.
• To point out any ‘problem areas’ and ways in which you can improve these.

Root Canal Treatment Explained

What is Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment, or ‘endodontics’ as it is also known, is a dental procedure used to treat decay, infection or injury to the blood or nerve supply of the tooth (the root canal system). It is used to save teeth which would otherwise have to be removed. The infection may cause an abscess if left untreated which in itself can be painful so it is worth avoiding! In the early stages of infection you may not initially feel any pain. In some cases your tooth may darken – which may mean the nerve has died or is dying. The symptoms of an abscess however can range from a dull ache to severe pain and tenderness when you bite down. If a root canal isn’t performed the infection would spread and the tooth would need to be removed.

tooth ache

The Root Canal Process

Root Canal Treatment is a skilled and time-consuming procedure – root canals are very small spaces and they require a great deal of precision and care to treat well. Like root systems of plants, the root canals of teeth have a main ‘branch’ as well as many smaller side ‘branches’. The whole system needs to be sealed during root canal treatment to be successful long term. The aim of the treatment is to remove all bacteria and then to clean and fill the root to prevent any further infection from occurring. Most courses of treatment will involve two or more visits to the dentist.

Initially a local anaesthetic is administered via an injection to numb the tooth and the surrounding tissues.

During the treatment, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed, any abscesses are drained if needed, and the inside of the tooth is very carefully cleaned, disinfected and shaped to enable the canal to receive special fillings and sealers. Once the pulp and the nerves contained in it is removed the tooth itself can no longer feel pain.

The freshly prepared canal space is then filled with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha. It is a thermoplastic material which is heated and then compressed into and against the walls of the root canals to seal them – it fits exactly into the prepared space. Together with adhesive cement called a sealer, the gutta-percha fills the prepared canal space. Sealing the canals is critically important to prevent re-infection.

Next a temporary or permanent filling material will then be placed to seal the access hole that was made to treat the canals.

Dead teeth are more brittle than live ones so your dentist may fit a cap or a crown to strengthen it and replace lost tooth structure as well as to provide a complete seal to the top of the tooth. You may also be prescribed antibiotics to treat or prevent infection/re-infection.

Root Canal Procedure

Does it hurt?

Before having a root canal procedure you will be given a local anaesthetic. This means the procedure shouldn’t be painful, and should be no more unpleasant than an ordinary filling. There may be some minor discomfort or a little tenderness afterwards but this should gradually subside over time. You may also experience some sensitivity in the treated tooth (I’m speaking from personal experience!) and this may take up to a year to subside.

Root canals are usually successful and a tooth can survive for around 10 years after treatment.

What is the cost?

Root Canal treatment is a complex, skilled and lengthy a procedure so costs can work out be be quite expensive. Most private dentists start their root canal charges at approximately £360 per tooth, with the price rising on a sliding scale depending on the number of roots, the difficulty of the treatment, and the number of sessions needed. You may also have to pay separately for x-rays, antibiotics, and other peripherals. If you need to have a cap or a crown fitted then this will increase the cost further. Most private root canal bills are in the range £360 to £475 per tooth.

On the NHS root canal work is considerably cheaper and falls into ‘Band 2’ course of treatment. At the time of writing this article the cost for band 2 treatment is £51.30 (please be aware however that should you require additional treatments such as x-rays then these will be charged separately).


Teeth that have had a root canal may darken after treatment although this is less common with modern techniques. They should be treated just the same as any other tooth i.e. they need to be cleaned twice a day with fluoride toothpaste. You should also have regular check-ups with your dentist.
