Dental emergencies solved by an emergency dentist in Bournemouth

However there is always the unfortunate possibility that one day we may become the victim of a dental emergency. There are a lot of different things that can constitute a dental emergency and we’ll take a look at some of them in this article.

What are dental emergencies?

There are many different types of dental emergency, including some things that people may not typically class as an ‘emergency.’ For example, a toothache or a dental cavity can both be classified as emergencies. This is true even if the toothache and/or cavity have been around for a long time. This is at least in part because bacteria are able to enter your teeth through a cavity, and if they do that they can cause you to have a very serious toothache. Often this toothache will be very sudden and sharp, but it may also be a persistent, minor pain which suddenly becomes a lot worse.

Another common dental emergency is a chipped or fractured tooth. An emergency dental appointment can treat this, and usually does so by smoothing out the damaged tooth, before bonding it with a tooth coloured composite to fill in the gap. Sometimes the treatment may need to be more extensive though, for example if the tooth root has been damaged, in which case a root canal procedure may be necessary. Whatever your dental emergency may be though, Hannah and our Queen’s Park Dental Team will be happy to look at and treat it.

Smile with radiance and shine you deserve, through teeth whitening in Bournemouth

No more filtersteeth-whitening-bournemouth

In recent years an increasing number of new patients are seeking out cosmetic dentistry solutions such as cosmetic teeth whitening, to brighten their smiles, and give their teeth a brighter and healthier appeal. It is speculated by many that the rationale behind this recent peak in dental involvement is due to the increase in social media documentation. As an increasing amount of us are continually documenting and sharing our everyday lives, it may have caused a number of us to become more conscious of the quality of our smiles, which, in turn, has caused an increase in the number of those seeking treatments such as cosmetic teeth whitening in Bournemouth.  Whether or not this rationale is based on fact remains unfounded, but whatever the reasoning is, here at Queens Park Dental Team, we are delighted to be providing a growing number of new patients with treatments which have the potential to improve both their smiles, and their self-esteem.

Withering whiteness

Contrary to what you may imagine, the vast majority of those who seek out cosmetic teeth whitening from us here at Queens Park Dental Team, do not require treatment as a result of poor oral hygiene. There are, in fact, a number of reasons why a patient may seek out cosmetic whitneting to brighten their smiles. One of the most common, and sadly unavoidable, reasons for seeking teeth whitening, is age. As you age, the natural enamel of your teeth can become faded or yellowed – regardless of how often, or how well, you brush and floss. Additionally, there are certain lifestyle choices which can cause the enamel of your teeth to become yellowed, one of the most detrimental of these being smoking and chewing tobacco, as the nicotine within it can cause dark stains on your teeth. Other causes of staining can result from drinking black coffee, tea or red wine. Typically, any fluid which has the potential to stain your clothing can also stain your teeth if consumed regularly. Taking certain types of medication can also result in the enamel of your teeth becoming yellowed or discoloured, as can consuming foods with high levels of acidity.

Clearing things up

With all this in mind, you may be prone to the feeling that a dull, yellow smile is a predetermined, unavoidable fate that lies ahead. However, here at Queens Park Dental we have the solution. Through cosmetic teeth whitening, we can fully eradicate years of superficial staining and discoloration, and leave you with a brighter, whiter smile. Teeth whitening from us here at Queens Park Dental Team is carried out by Hannah, our specialist teeth whitening expert. She provides patients with a home based whitening kit which affords patients the ability to carry out the whitening process from the comfort of your own homes, and at a time which is convenient to you. The treatment process consists of a custom made retainer being constructed from within our practices, providing patients with a bespoke retainer which fits perfectly around your teeth. Following that you would be given the White Dental Beauty’s whitening gel which is applied to the retainer. You are then left to carry out treatment at a time which is convenient to you. This method of teeth whitening can have a massively positive impact on the self-esteem of those who seek it, as you have the ability to complete the process at a time which suits you and tailor the degree of whiteness that you wish your smile to be.

Brighten up your world with cosmetic teeth whitening in Bournemouth

Growing grins

teeth-whitening-bournemouthAcross the country, and all over the world, the past few years have brought about an  unpresidented resurgence in the amount of people seeking out cosmetic dentistry solutions. People of all ages and demographics are increasingly turning to cosmetic dentistry to achieve a more cohesive, bright, and healthy looking smile to boost their self-esteem. Never before have we seen such a peak in interest here at Queens Park Dental Team, and we welcome these new patients with wide, open arms. Whilst a rising amount of patients are seeking out treatments such as teeth whitening in Bournemouth, there are still a number of potential new patients out there who refrain from seeking such treatments due to fears or concerns about safety. As such, we’ve done our best to address some of these concerns, to help put your mind at ease and allow you to take the next step in brightening your smile.

A sensitive issue

Often, one of the main concerns that causes potential patients from seeking out cosmetic tooth whitening is how treatment can damage the enamel on their teeth and increase sensitivity. The reason behind these concerns comes from the rise in over-the-counter home whitening kits, which often do not inform their users of the correct amount of time to wear the retainers. This, sadly, sometimes results in people damaging their enamel as they wear the retainer for far too long in the hope of achieving a whiter smile. At Queens Park however, we use a home-whitening kit which is clinically tested and approved. We use the White Dental Beauty method of teeth whitening, which involves the application of a thin layer of peroxide-based whitening gel within a custom-moulded retainer. This retainer is fitted around each patient’s unique dental structure, by our teeth whitening specialist Hanna. Thereafter, patients are free to take their retainer home and continue the whitening process over around two weeks. Over this time, patients can gradually see the effects of the gel when they wear their retainer – and it gives them the opportunity to tailor how white they wish their smile to be, and mould the treatment around their own schedule and the sensitivity of their teeth.

Reasons for seeking treatment

Discoloration or staining to a patient’s teeth is generally divided into two distinct forms. The first, and the most common form of staining is known as ‘Extrinsic’ discoloration. This form of staining is generally removable through cosmetic teeth whitening, and is caused when foods, beverages, or certain lifestyle choices such as smoking or chewing tobacco, result in superficial stains to a patient’s teeth. The consumption of high-acidic foods and poor oral hygiene can also result in extrinsic discoloration or staining. The second form of staining is known as ‘Intrinsic’ discoloration, which is when the actual inside of the tooth has become stained. This is a far rarer form of staining which is generally caused by taking certain medications, or a medical condition. Whilst this form of staining can be brightened by cosmetic teeth whitening, it generally requires more treatment than extrinsic discolouration. However, through our method of home-whitening, patients can gradually achieve a whiter, healthier looking smile which will renew their sense of self-esteem and confidence, and keep them smiling for some time to come.

When toothache becomes a visit to the emergency dentist in Bournemouth

It’s very common to try and ignore a toothache. Often, the odd pain is there for a moment and then gone, and never comes back. But if pain persists over a number of days and is throbbing so badly that it is taking over your head, then please get yourself to Queens Park Dental Team so that Hannah Neve, an emergency dentist in Bournemouth can take a look at your mouth.emergency-dentist-bournemouth

Call us for an appointment and explain what is going on with your mouth. We will do our best to fit you in for an emergency appointment on the day you call us.

Don’t ignore severe toothache

It’s tempting to ignore a toothache, and hope that it will clear up by itself, but if it is an infection in your tooth, leaving it to its own devices could be a big mistake. Infections in the teeth tend to go down into the root and then they can move from the root into the jawbone, where they can kill off tissue.


If you have an infection in your tooth, you may well have an abscess. These are wells of pus that tend to collect under the gumline around the base of the tooth.

What can the emergency dentist in Bournemouth do?

Hannah’s first priority will be to get rid of your pain, with a local anaesthetic. Once you are no longer hurting, she can move to cleaning out the infection. This will mean draining the pus away and clearing out any infection in the tooth. Often, the pulp of the tooth is infected and this will need to be removed. Hannah will then use a filling material in its place and put a temporary crown on top. You will need to come back to have a permanent crown fitted.

Don’t cancel if the pain subsides

If you have made an appointment and your toothache suddenly stops, please come and see Hannah anyway. The cessation of pain is not a good thing. It is often a sign that the infection has killed the tooth, and is now making its way into your jawbone.

How do teeth whitening trays work?

When watching movies, do you ever wonder how film stars get their teeth so white? You might look after yours properly, but no amount of brushing and flossing leaves you with that dazzling smile.teeth-whitening-bournemouth

Our teeth naturally discolour and become dull as we get older, but that shouldn’t mean you should live with a smile you hate.

Teeth whitening in Bournemouth have made a desirable smile more attainable, especially at our reputable practice, Queens Park.

Come and chat with our specialised dental practitioner, Hannah, if you are serious about changing your appearance.

Our method to teeth whitening

There are options to whitening your teeth, but using custom trays are the most effective method that is gentle on your mouth.

People react to having whitening their teeth differently and experience various side effects. Our approach is gradual and less harsh on your teeth. We also offer aids to help provide relief for the discomfort you experience.

How does the trays system work?

If you’re a suitable candidate for teeth whitening, Hannah will take dental impressions of your teeth so that our lab technicians can create customised sets of trays that fit the shape of your mouth exactly.

Each tray, one for your top teeth and one for your bottom, are pre-filled with a teeth whitening gel that contains trace amounts of Hydrogen Peroxide. Place them over your teeth a couple of hours every night and see the difference in a few weeks!

What is the difference between over-the-counter trays and ones prescribed by dentists?

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic treatment that is considered the quickest way of transforming how you look.

DIY kits can be bought over-the-counter, but there are risks in implementing the procedure yourself, without the professional guidance by our highly qualified cosmetic dentist, Hannah.

Trays that you buy at a pharmacy or drugstore aren’t made to fit your unique mouth, and therefore, run the risk of leaking. Not only do your teeth not receive the bleach they need, but your gums also become aggravated.

Prevent this from happening by consulting with our dental practitioner, and receiving customised trays that whiten your teeth safely and effectively.

Are there risks involved?

As we have already mentioned, people’s reactions to having their teeth whitened vary. Patients with more sensitive teeth might experience more discomfort. However, this tenderness is temporary and can be relieved with painkillers.

We put measures in place to make your teeth whitening experience as painless as possible with professional teeth cleaning. We will also treat gum disease and other mouth conditions before giving the green light on treatment.

If this pain lasts for more than a couple of days, consult with our dentist to rule out more significant dental issues that need addressing.

Is teeth whitening in Bournemouth permanent

Unfortunately, teeth whitening does not last forever, but there are certain practices one can undertake to ensure they last a while.

For one, watch what you consume by avoiding food and drink that stains, such as red wine and coffee. Try to reduce your smoke to ensure a whiter smile for longer.

Are you self conscious about your imperfect teeth? Teeth whitening in Bournemouth is the quickest way to a brighter smile.

Straighten your teeth without having to rely on traditional braces

Everyone wants straight teeth, but the prospect of wearing braces is undesirable for most people.

teeth-straightening-bournemouthWhile current methods of teeth straightening in Bournemouth have changed society’s thoughts about traditional orthodontic devices, nothing quite compares to In-Line Invisible braces.

We provide In-Line Invisible Braces to those who want straight teeth without the hassle and discomfort of wearing metal braces.

Make a booking with our highly skilled and experienced dentist, Hannah, to see if this is the right device for your needs!

What are invisible braces exactly?

Invisible braces comprise as a pair of clear plastic retainers that are designed to fit your mouth perfectly.

The retainers are comfortable to wear, easy to maintain and will fit your lifestyle. They can be removed to eat, drink, and when you clean your teeth. We advise invisible braces users to wear their device most of the time to maximise its effectiveness in straightening your teeth.

Replace the set with new ones every two weeks. Throughout treatment, you will receive multiple sets of these aligners.

Be strict with yourself and remember to change them timeously. Failure to do so will extend your overall treatment time.

What are the benefits of invisible braces for teeth straightening in Bournemouth

Not only is it comfortable to wear, but invisible braces are entirely metal-free, making it barely visible to the untrained eye.

The orthodontic aid is also detachable, which means you can take it out to eat and avoid embarrassing situations caused by having leafy green stuck in your braces.

At the same time, removing your braces to clean your teeth will help you to maintain good oral health and hygiene, because you can reach those hard-to-reach spaces unobstructed by wires and ligatures.

How long will I need to wear the device for?

Treatment time varies from person-to-person and depends on how severe or complicated your dental issue is. However, an approximate time frame is five to ten months.

The shorter time is favourable when compared to the one to two years you would have to endure with traditional braces.

Am I a suitable candidate for invisible braces?

The downside to invisible braces is that they cannot correct all irregularities and imperfections. This brace will be appropriate for you if your dental issues are mild to moderate, but if yours is a more unique or complex case, you might have to consider alternative options.

The good news is that other treatment methods are discrete, light on your teeth and comfortable to wear. Dentist Hannah will provide further information to you in person.

Will my teeth remain straight post-treatment?

The effects of braces to repair crooked teeth, overbites and correct spacing are long-lasting, but there is a chance that your teeth might shift slightly in time.

If you have concerns about this, we can provide you with a retainer to wear post-treatment to keep your teeth in place, which you will have to wear for most of the time in the beginning, and then only at night after that.

Are you considering teeth straightening in Bournemouth? Do not let your age prevent you from getting braces – invisible braces are sleek, discreet and comfortable!
