As the New Year unfolds, many individuals seek ways to enhance their health and well-being, and what better way to start afresh than by taking a closer look at your dental health?

Andrew Scott Dental Care is a leading dental clinic in Aberdeen and encourages you to make a commitment to your oral health this year, emphasising the myriad of benefits that a dental check-up can bring.

Unlocking the secrets of a radiant smile

With patients at the centre, the team strive for clinical excellence. This means that they never stop investing in their education, training and technical skills.

Dentist, Dr Rachel Jackson says: “I am proud to have been able to provide a variety of dental treatments within a timely manner for my patients at ASDC. Particularly as many people are finding access to dental care challenging at the moment. Many of our new patients have booked in to gain continuity of care and build a trusting relationship.”

Embarking on a dental journey at the beginning of the year holds immense potential. Further to addressing pain and infection, a dental check-up sets the stage for cultivating healthy habits, improving your ability to eat comfortably, and addressing aesthetic concerns that may have been lingering for too long. Among the most sought-after treatments are guided biofilm therapy, ceramic veneers, composite bonding and tooth whitening.

A Gleaming smile: The wonders of Guided Biofilm Therapy and Tooth Whitening

Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) is a modern evidenced based method of professional plaque removal that enables dental professionals to remove harmful bacteria present in plaque that are responsible for dental decay and gum disease.

The clinician begins by disclosing the teeth with a purple dye which reveals precisely where the patients is struggling to clean, enabling detailed and bespoke oral hygiene instruction. The dyed biofilm (or plaque) is gently removed with a combination of heated water, specially formulated powder and air.

For those looking to enhance their smiles without resorting to veneers or resin bonding, GBT combined with the latest in-house tooth whitening system Blanc One can yield fantastic results. This provides a less abrasive, more comfortable and advanced level of stain removal than traditional methods and also softens tartar which facilitates a gentler and easier clean.

Blanc One Whitening has a unique selling point in that it does not cause sensitivity. Patients at this dental clinic in Aberdeen have been delighted with the results and it continues to be a convenient, pain free procedure.

Alternatively, the at-home tooth whitening process spans four to six weeks, offering longer-lasting results compared to Blanc One, and is ideal for individuals with darker teeth. Tooth whitening must always be prescribed by a dentist following a comprehensive dental examination, ensuring dental fitness and suitability.

Transforming Smiles; Ceramics vs Resin bonding

Ceramic veneers and composite resin bonding stand out as premier cosmetic treatments, designed to address a range of dental imperfections. Whether your teeth are damaged, misshaped, or discoloured, these options can transform your smile.

Resin bonding and ceramic veneers work most effectively on straight teeth. Individuals with existing crowns, severely broken teeth or missing teeth may not be suitable candidates.  Furthermore, resin requires ongoing maintenance, such as polishing and repair, and may not offer the longevity that ceramic veneers do. Neither are reversible procedures which is why during a comprehensive dental assessment, the experienced team at Andrew Scott Dental Care can talk you through the risks and benefits of each treatment, helping you choose the option that best suits your needs. Costs start at £230 per tooth for resin and £795 per tooth for ceramic veneers.

Some clients benefit from a combination of resin, ceramics, bridges, implants etc to achieve function and aesthetics.

Dentist Dr Rachel Jackson, utilises the latest dental materials, technologies and techniques, aiming to strike a balance between preserving healthy tooth tissue and enhancing smile aesthetics. “I want people to compliment you on your smile, not on your dental work”.  During a consultation at Andrew Scott Dental Care, you can discuss your budget, expectations, timeframe and current dental condition. This personalised approach ensures that your dental journey aligns seamlessly with your individual needs.

Make this year the one where you prioritise your smile – a symbol of confidence, health and a new you!
