Covering all your routine and preventive dental care

Regular dental check-ups
Regular visits to your dentist is always advised in order to maintain a healthy smile and to prevent periodontal or gum disease. During your dental check-up we provide a thorough examination of your teeth, gums and oral hygiene. Your dental check-up will also be an opportunity to discuss any signs of bleeding gums, as well as your eating, smoking and drinking habit, which can all have an impact on the general health of your teeth and gums. We help to detect the earliest signs of dental problems, and will be able to treat the condition accordingly before they can become more complicated.
Stopping tooth decay with high-tech fillings
Need a filling, fast? If your dentist has flagged a cavity, you can rest assured that at Kensington Dental Practice, getting a filling will be a fast and gentle procedure. Composite white fillings are the most popular option among our patients, and with good reason. Created using a tooth-coloured, putty-like resin that can be moulded to fit your tooth exactly, white fillings are hardly noticeable in your mouth, and require less drilling than traditional amalgams. White fillings can also be used to replace your old metal fillings – ideal if you want to improve a ‘shadowed smile’.
Saving your smile with gentle root canal therapy
Root canal has a reputation for being unpleasant, but please let us reassure you that today’s modern root canal therapy is considered as routine as getting a filling. Root canal, or endodontic treatment, is required when tooth decay has penetrated to the sensitive dental pulp inside the tooth. The past few years have seen incredible advances in technology, and this, combined with our dedicated care for nervous patients – including IV sedation – makes us confident that your root canal experience will be comfortable and positive.
Dealing with problem teeth
Whether it’s a wisdom tooth causing discomfort or a failing tooth that simply can’t be saved with other methods, at Kensington Dental Practice we are highly experienced at carrying out tooth extractions. We will only ever carry out a surgical extraction once all other options have been exhausted, as it is always preferable to save the natural tooth wherever possible. But when an extraction is necessary, you can feel confident that you are in experienced hands. As a Dental Phobia Certified practice, we’re well placed to help nervous patients through their procedure and offer IV sedation for longer or more complex procedures. We’ll ensure you have a clear understanding of what to expect during and after your procedure.
Helping snorers (and partners) get a proper night’s sleep
Did you know that your dentist can help with snoring and teeth grinding problems? If you are a serial snorer, you’re probably missing out on quality, uninterrupted sleep – and so is your partner. At Kensington Dental Practice, we provide anti-snoring devices, or night guards, which hold the jaw in the correct position, keeping the airway open and preventing the vibration that causes snoring. Custom-made in a dental lab using your dental impressions, our snoring solutions ensure you and your partner can finally enjoy a peaceful night’s rest.
If you partake in such contact sports as rugby, boxing or martial arts, you could be putting your teeth at risk if you don’t have the proper protective sportswear. A custom-made athletic mouth guard provides superior protection for your face, teeth, jaw, and gums. As the cost of repairing dental trauma can often run to thousands, investing in a sports guard is a sensible choice. Getting your bespoke sports guard from Kensington Dental Practice will usually require two appointments – one to have your dental impressions taken and a final appointment at which you can collect and try out your sports guard.
