Teeth Whitening

Getting your teeth whitened can make the world of difference to your smile and your confidence and is relatively affordable for a very effective smile enhancer. Teeth whitening is a simple and safe procedure when carried out under professional supervision. Your teeth could be lightened by up to around four shades.

Lushington Road Dental Practice in Eastbourne offer tray whitening, whereby some specially tailored mouth trays are designed and made, which will fit your teeth and gums perfectly. They will be comfortable to wear as they are tailor made and will reach all parts of the tooth. The whitening gel is held in little reservoirs of the mouth tray. The patient then places the mouth trays into their mouth on a daily basis or every other day for a period of between 2- 6 weeks, depending on the patient’s initial tooth shade.

You will meet your dentist regularly to assess the colour and they will work with you until the desired shade is achieved.

Lushington Road Dental Practice can also offer whitening for non-vital (dead) teeth. This involves the dentist accessing the tooth from the back and placing high density whitening paste in the tooth and then sealing off the tooth. This process is repeated until the tooth is lighter and generally takes between 2-4 weeks.

Dental Implants

If you have gaps in your teeth or missing teeth, it can affect many things such as speech, eating and chewing and can even knock your self-esteem. You no longer have to suffer in silence. Dental implants are more commonly available these days and are a great long term solution for missing teeth.

So, what exactly are dental implants, and how long does the process take? We explore a little further. A small, titanium screw is placed into the jawbone, usually under general anaesthetic or sedation. The gum is then stitched so that it heals over the implant. The bone and the titanium screw fuse together. This usually takes around 8-12 weeks. This then creates a tooth root, which is as strong as a natural tooth root is.  A replacement tooth can then be fitted onto the dental implant.

The Oral Health Foundation offers further useful information about Dental Implants.

Profitable Practices – Helping you create excellence in everything you do!

Do you feel that your practice could perform better, but unsure how to go about changing this?

Are you wanting someone to help you who has been there as a practice owner and understands the realities of dealing with staff and patients and running a business? Someone who won’t judge you or make unrealistic suggestions that just don’t apply to a dental practice. Someone who recognises that every practice is different and requires an individual approach.

We help you create excellence within your team. We do this by helping the whole practice learn new skills and systems. The practice will learn to adapt and change, embracing what the change brings rather than shying away from it.

We will help you weave within the fabric of your practice, a certain ethos, and a pursuit of excellence. This will make your practice stand out above your competitors. We help you manage this through constant repetition, and as a result these beliefs and behaviours become second nature. This will enable you to make a special place for your team and patients to visit. As a result you will have new patients requesting to join your practice to become a part of what you have created.

This is a journey that we take together, we will be with you from our first visit, spending a full day within your practice so that we can really get a feel for where you are, and then find out from you where you want to be. We then create a bespoke report detailing our findings and outlining our suggestions. It is then up to you how long you want us to help you, a one-off visit, support for 6 months, 12 months or beyond. With our monthly support plans, we will visit regularly to provide support and training, to help you implement your report. We are also available via telephone or email to answer any questions, queries or problems you encounter. We are fully aware that during the day you are busy seeing patients and dealing with the issues of running a practice, which is why we are happy to take calls out of office hours. We can help you make the changes you need to become a profitable practice, with an excellent team and happy patients.

If you have any questions or would like a chat about what we can do for you, drop us an e-mail or give us a call.

Markham Associates Dental Surgeons – Dentist in Reading

Wedding and party seasons are both fast approaching and this is the time when we want to look our best. If you have discoloured or yellowing teeth, it can really knock your confidence and make you reluctant to give your best, full smile.

Teeth whitening may be something you’ve never considered before, believing it is a treatment for celebrities. Well, this is no longer the case and more and more people are seeing their dentist for whitening treatments at much more affordable prices.

The teeth whitening at Markham Associates Dental Surgeons in Reading is both safe and effective. They will take impressions of your teeth and then produce specifically tailored whitening trays to fit perfectly in your mouth, providing you with comfortable and secure mouth trays.

The mouth trays will be used with a special whitening gel and you will take these home, with full instructions on how to use them, for a few weeks. After this, you will come back to visit the dentist and they can assess the lightening effect.

Some of the major benefits of having professional teeth whitening, rather than shop bought products, is that the trays are custom built for the patient, so fit perfectly. The professional lightening gel is more effective than the shop bought kits. Your treatment is overseen by a professional, therefore sensitivity and gum irritation can be avoided.

Emergency Dentist

A dental emergency can leave patients in a lot of pain. This could be caused by a broken or lost tooth, a lost or broken filling, crown, denture or bridge, an infection or just plain old tooth decay, causing pain. Whatever the emergency, Markham Associates offer same day emergency appointments five days a week between 8.30am to 5.30pm and until 7pm on Tuesday and Thursdays.


This service is open to registered and non-registered patients. If you need an emergency dentist call on 0118 957 4308 or 0118 950 2275.

Adam Toft – Smile with Confidence

Adam Toft has a specific interest in smile makeovers and enhancing and transforming people’s smiles. He knows how important a smile can be to a person’s confidence and self- esteem and has been working with people to transform their smiles for over 20 years.

He has a particular passion for adult orthodontics and is a highly-trained provider of short term teeth straightening treatments such as C-Fast, Fastbraces, Tru-Smile and Invisalign. He provides this alongside other cosmetic dentistry options, such as teeth whitening, dental veneers and dental implants. Below we explore some of these treatments further.

Orthodontics (C-Fast, Smile Tru, Invisalign)

These teeth straightening options are particularly good for adults seeking straighter teeth who want a more subtle solution than traditional braces. Smile Tru and Invisalign are made from transparent, clear materials and gently move the teeth into the desired position, without the brackets and wires. C-Fast uses discreet, clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires to straighten the front six teeth. The treatment time is usually around 6 months, which can also keep costs down.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a great treatment if you have missing teeth or large gaps between your teeth. They can even improve a person’s face shape, as when there are missing teeth, the skin can sometimes sag in that area. The dental implants are basically acting as a tooth root. Small titanium cylindrical posts are inserted into the jawbone to create a firm foundation for new teeth to be fixed to.  After a few months, they fuse neatly with the bone and a new crown, bridges or dentures can be fixed.

The dental implants act just as your natural teeth do and can significantly improve your ability to eat and can even help with speech, which can often alter when teeth are missing.

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are used to improve the appearance of the front teeth. You may want to use dental veneers if you have gaps in your teeth, crooked teeth or discolouration of the teeth. They are very thin sheets of tooth-coloured material, often made from porcelain. These are bonded to the front of the teeth. On average veneers last around 10 years and can drastically alter a person’s teeth for the better.

Teeth Whitening

Dr Toft has completed a great deal of training in teeth whitening and lectures and demonstrates tooth whitening for dental professionals throughout the UK. If you would like a speedy teeth whitening system, he uses Enlighten Whitening in his dental practice. This is an in surgery treatment that can work in as little as an hour. He also offers home whitening, custom-made trays called Nite White, which can take a few days to 20 days to see results.

Adam Toft has a host of experience in all the aforementioned treatments and is also Principal Dentist at Cavendish Dental Care.
