What Services Does Our Practice Provide?

 Dr Lekha Menon, Dr. Gorika Sood and Dr Mahda Firouzeei provide excellence in dental treatment and a wide range of available treatment, including:

1. Preventive Dentistry:

Prevention is one of the most critical and effective measures of good oral health. Our preventive dentistry services are designed to detect and address dental issues early, preventing them from progressing into more serious problems. Our preventive services include:

  • Regular Dental Exams and Cleanings: We recommend scheduling dental exams and cleanings every six months to keep your teeth and gums healthy. During these appointments, our experienced dentists will thoroughly examine your mouth, screen for oral health issues, and remove plaque and any kind of buildup to prevent cavities and gum disease
  • Dental Sealants: Dental sealants are very thin plastic covers of sorts applied to the chewing area of the back teeth to protect them from decay. Sealants create an effective barrier that keeps food particles and bacteria from accumulating in the deep trenches or crevices of the teeth, reducing the risk of cavities in these areas.
  • Fluoride Treatments: Fluoride is a kind of mineral that helps strengthen tooth enamel and helps prevent cavities. We provide fluoride treatments to patients of all ages to keep their teeth strong and resistant to decay.

2. Restorative Dentistry:

Even if you are diligent in following all dental care habits including brushing and flossing twice a day, dental issues can still come up unexpectedly. Our restorative dentistry services are created in a way to help repair damaged or decayed teeth and restore your smile’s health and function. Our restorative services include:

  • Tooth-Coloured Fillings: We use composite resin fillings to fix the teeth affected by cavities or minor damage. Unlike traditional metal fillings, tooth-coloured fillings blend seamlessly with your natural teeth for a discreet and aesthetically pleasing restoration.
  • Dental Crowns and Bridges: Dental crowns are personalised caps that cover and protect damaged or teeth that have weakened, while dental bridges replace one or more than one missing teeth by fixing artificial teeth to nearby natural teeth or dental implants.
  • Root Canal Therapy: If you have an extremely infected or damaged tooth so much that it hurts to chew from that tooth, root canal therapy may be an unavoidable step in saving the tooth from extraction. During this procedure, our skilled dentists remove infected tissue from the tooth’s interior, clean as well as disinfect the root canal, and properly seal it to prevent further infection.

3. Cosmetic Dentistry:

A confident smile is a critical part of your confidence and can improve your self-esteem and overall quality of life. Our cosmetic dentistry services have the ability to enhance the appearance of your smile and help you feel proud to show it off. Our cosmetic services include:

  • Teeth Whitening: You can achieve teeth whitening that is whiter than your natural shade by a few shades with the help of professional teeth whitening, effectively removing stains and discolouration caused by ageing, food and drinks, smoking, and other factors.
  • Porcelain Veneers: Dental veneers are thin shells made of porcelain that are bonded to the front surfaces of teeth to improve their appearance. Veneers can correct imperfections such as stains, chips, cracks, and gaps, creating a more uniform and attractive smile.
  • Cosmetic Bonding: Cosmetic bonding involves applying a tooth-coloured composite resin material to the external surface of the teeth to correct minor imperfections such as chips, cracks, and gaps. Bonding is a quick and affordable way to enhance the appearance of your smile.

4. Paediatric Dentistry:

At Your Healthy Smile, we welcome patients of all ages, including children. Our paediatric dentistry services are personalised to provide gentle care to children to ensure they do not get nervous with the equipment, helping them develop positive associations with dental visits and laying the foundation for a lifetime of excellent oral health. Our paediatric services include:

  • Children’s Dental Exams and Cleanings: Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are essential for maintaining children’s oral health and detecting any issues early.
  • Dental Sealants and Fluoride Treatments: We offer dental sealants and fluoride treatments to children to help prevent cavities and protect their developing teeth from decay.
  • Education and Prevention: Our team educates children as well as parents about the importance of good oral hygiene habits, proper nutrition, and preventive care to keep their smiles healthy and beautiful.

5. Tooth-Coloured Fillings:

Our tooth-coloured fillings blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, providing durable and aesthetically pleasing restorations for cavities or minor damage.

6. Laser Tooth Whitening and Cosmetic Dentistry:

You can now enhance your smile and confidence with our laser tooth whitening and cosmetic dentistry services. From porcelain veneers to cosmetic bonding, we offer personalised treatments to change the appearance of your smile.

7.Extractions and Surgical Tooth Removals:

Our experienced team performs extractions and surgical tooth removals, including wisdom teeth extraction, with precision and care to ensure your comfort and safety.

8. Root Canal Treatments:

Save infected or damaged teeth with our root canal treatments, which remove diseased tissue, clean the root canal, and seal it to prevent further infection.

9. Laser Dentistry:

Get ready to experience the benefits of laser dentistry for precise and minimally invasive dental procedures, including cavity detection, gum disease treatment, and soft tissue surgeries.

10. Dental Implants:

You can restore missing teeth with dental implants, which provide a stable and long-lasting solution for replacing single or more than one missing teeth.

11. Crowns, Bridges, and Veneers:

Our custom-made crowns, bridges, and veneers restore the appearance and function of damaged or missing teeth, enhancing your smile’s beauty and strength.

12. Full and Partial Dentures:

We offer full as well as partial dentures to replace missing teeth and restore your ability to speak, eat, and smile with confidence.

13. Sports Mouthguards:

Protect your teeth and jaws during sports activities with our custom-fitted sports mouthguards, designed for optimal comfort and protection.

14. TMJ Treatments and Splints:

Alleviate TMJ (temporomandibular joint) pain and discomfort with our specialised treatments and custom-made splints.

15. Orthodontics:

We provide orthodontic treatments for both children and adults, including traditional braces and Invisalign clear aligners, to achieve straighter, healthier smiles.

16. Invisalign:

You can straighten your teeth without it showing when you talk and smile. This is also a painless and comfortable procedure. With Invisalign clear aligners, we offer a convenient and virtually invisible alternative to traditional braces.
