Anne’s Lane Dental Centre is based in the heart of Dublin 2, just off Grafton Street. The dental practice is open six days a week and offers early morning, lunchtime and evening appointments to work around you. They also offer some emergency appointments every day, so there is no need to put off that aching tooth, missing tooth or bleeding gums.
They pay special attention to making nervous patients feel at ease and welcome patients who may not have visited a dentist for many years. They recognise that taking that first step in visiting a dentist can be very daunting. Following the initial consultation, the practice is happy to work with whatever pace suits the patient. They can also offer sedation for an even more relaxed dental experience.
Anne’s Lane Dental Centre has over 15 years’ experience, and the staff undertake ongoing training to enable the latest techniques, procedures and technology are available. Some of the treatments on offer are dental implants, teeth whitening, teeth straightening (orthodontics) dental bridges and removal of wisdom teeth.
There are numerous teeth whitening options on the market nowadays. The three systems they specialise in are Philips Zoom!, Britesmile, and teeth whitening trays.
The Philips Zoom! System is the number one selling teeth whitening treatment in the U.S and is used on the television show Extreme Makeover. It can lighten the teeth up to ten shades, and this is achieved by using a light activated whitening gel to lighten the enamel and dentine.
Britesmile was developed by a former NASA scientist. It is fast and simple, and treatment can usually be completed within an hour. The procedure uses a combination of hydrogen peroxide gel and a specially designed lamp that speeds up the treatment time. Many models are favouring this treatment.
Teeth whitening trays are a more traditional teeth whitening option. The patient uses thin teeth trays containing a special whitening gel. These trays are worn for around four hours every day for at least two weeks.
If you have any missing teeth, dental implants can be an excellent solution for replacing them. A titanium post is planted into the jaw bone, usually under local or general anaesthetic, and this acts as the tooth’s root would have done. Once the jaw has healed, and the bone has infused with the implant, which usually takes three months, then the replacement bridge, crown or denture can be fixed onto the implant.
One of the major advantages of a dental implant is that it is as strong as natural teeth and roots. It means you don’t have to remove dentures for example to clean them. The dental implants look and feel like your natural teeth. They can also improve your speech and be easier for eating.
