Anti-Wrinkle Treatments

Posted By service On March 24th, 2016 in Treatments

Boost Your Confidence And Enhance The Appearance Of Your Skin Today At Writtle Dental Practice!

Let Your Journey to Smoother Looking Skin Begin Here!

Facial aesthetic treatments such as Botox are becoming increasingly popular to help keep you looking and feeling your best!

At Writtle Dental Practice we offer both patients and non-dental clients anti-wrinkle injections to smooth fine lines currently around the eye, frown and forehead areas.

Feel free to come in for a complimentary consultation with our facial aesthetics advisor, Dr Samira Ahmed.

We look forward to seeing you!


Why do we get lines and wrinkles?

Many years of laughing, smiling and frowning can cause our skin to become less supple and the creases in our face deepen into lines that become permanent. This is due to the over use of facial muscles. Treatments with BTX-A relax these muscles and so reduce the appearance of fine lines which in turn can make the skin appear dramatically smoother.

What does the treatment involve?

After cleansing the upper face, a small number of injections are placed into the affected areas with minimal discomfort. A local anaesthetic cream can be applied if you are at all concerned.

At the site of the injections there will be a small raised area which usually disappears within 30 minutes. You will be able to carry on with your normal daily activities straight away and apply minimal make up if you wish, after the procedure.

We advise drinking 2 litres of water over the course of the day and ask you to avoid exercise for the first 24 hours. Facials, saunas, laser treatments and chemical peels should be avoided for 7 days. All of the above will be discussed with you at the initial consultation.

How long before I can see the results?

You will feel your skin tighten over the course of the first 3-4 days and will see the full effect of treatment after 14 days. Treatments usually last between 3 and 4 months and may last up to 6 months in some clients.

Is the treatment suitable for me?

There are a few medical conditions for which anti-wrinkle treatments will not be suitable. If you are pregnant/breast-feeding, have an allergy to eggs or suffer from certain medical conditions affecting your nerves or muscles, we would not advise treatment. We always take a full medical history during the initial consultation and will advise you if we have any concerns.

Your safety and well-being are our priority!

Dental Crowns

Posted By service On January 8th, 2016 in Treatments

Dental Crowns are caps which are placed over broken teeth to strengthen and repair them, restoring the shape of the natural tooth.

Dental Crowns when cemented in place fully cover the visible part of the teeth that lie above the line of the gums.

Crowns can be made of a number of different materials and we will be able to advise you as to the best material dependent on the type of crown required and its placement within your mouth.

Benefits of Dental Crowns:

  • Support – To cover and support a tooth with a large filling where there isn’t much tooth left after the filling.
  • Restore –  They are great for restoring broken teeth or severely worn down teeth.
  • Protection – They also protect teeth that are weak from breaking or cracked.
  • Cosmetic – They can also be used to improve the cosmetic appearance of your smile.

Dental Hygiene

Posted By service On January 8th, 2016 in Treatments

A dental hygienist is a licensed dental professional who specializes in preventive oral health, typically focusing on techniques in oral hygiene.

The hygienist is able to perform a number of procedures including deep cleaning, scaling and root planing for patients with advanced gum disease (periodontal disease), dental sealants, administration of fluoride, and provide instructions for good oral hygiene and care.

Their main focus is to ensure that you are given the tools to keep your teeth free of plaque.

Benefits of Visiting the Hygienist.

  • Demonstrates effective tooth brushing technique – remove plaque without causing tooth wear and receding gums.
  • Advises on the best aid to clean in between teeth – this ensures that you clean the 40% of the tooth surfaces that brushing alone misses.
  • Treats and prevents periodontal disease – this ensures that you are able to keep your natural teeth for as long as possible.
  • Removes plaque and hard (calculus) deposits – this helps to reduce the risk of decay and gum disease.

Dental Bridges

Posted By service On January 8th, 2016 in Treatments

A dental bridges are fixed dental restorations used to replace a missing tooth (or several teeth) by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants.

Dental bridges can be made of a number of different materials and your dentist will be able to advise you as to the best material and design for your mouth.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

  • Improved Appearance – Missing teeth can leave unsightly gaps which bridges can address with natural looking teeth.
  • Long Lasting – Fixed bridges can last well providing they are examined regularly andyour teeth and gums are well looked after.
  • Efficient eating – – Bridges can allow you to eat more confidently and enjoy a wider range of foods that you would otherwise have found difficult with missing teeth.

White Dental Fillings

Posted By service On January 8th, 2016 in Treatments

Fillings are used to restore teeth that have been damaged by decay or have been cracked or broken.


Composite fillings or white dental fillings can be matched to the natural colour of your teeth, meaning that the fillings are less noticeable. This is especially important if fillings are needed in front teeth that are visible when you smile. Composite fillings are strong and hard wearing depending on the material used. Our experienced dentists will explain this procedure thoroughly before commencing with treatment.

Benefits of Dental Fillings

  • Prevention – By having teeth filled and treated quickly after decay has been found or a break is noticed the tooth will be prevented from deteriorating further and avoids the need for more extensive dental treatment.
  • Long lasting – Tooth coloured fillings can last many years depending on how well you look after your teeth.
  • Appearance – Composite or white dental fillings usually look like your natural teeth and are great for replacing silver or amalgam fillings.
  • Support – White dental fillings bond to your teeth offering support to the tooth structure.

Dental Examination

Posted By service On January 8th, 2016 in Treatments

A dental examination is important in keeping good oral health. Some patients may need dental examinations every six months whereas others may need more or less frequent examinations depending on their oral health.

During your dental examination our experienced dentist will check the following

  • Face, neck, mouth and gums for any abnormalities
  • Signs of mouth cancer and tooth decay
  • Jaw bones and bite and others


Your dental examination may include dental x-ray(s) as necessary.

Benefits of Dental Examination:

Some of the benefits of regular dental examinations are

  • Early diagnosis of dental decay and treatment helping to prevent potential major problems.
  • Mouth cancer screening which could help detect mouth cancer early.
  • Problems could be picked up early and managed more cost effectively.
  • Good oral health means a healthier you.

Dental Treatments

At Writtle Dental Practice we are experienced dentists who can provide you with almost all of your general dentistry, cosmetic dental treatments and facial aesthetic treatments.

We offer these services in a clean modern and comfortable environment ensuring that you always get the best treatments possible.

Below are a list of all the treatments we offer:

Dental Implants

Posted By service On January 8th, 2016 in Treatments

A dental implant is essentially a substitute for a natural root of a tooth that has failed. Each implant is placed into the bone which is carefully prepared at the precise location of the missing tooth. An implant is a titanium screw, just like a tooth root, it is placed in the jawbone.

In order to support replacement teeth, dental implants allow a variety of components to be fitted. Once fitted, these components provide a strong foundation for long-term support of crowns, bridges or dentures.

Implants have now been used by dentists for a number of years and are a safe and long lasting way to replace missing teeth.

In order to place implants it is necessary to ensure that there is enough bone in your jaw for the implant to be placed into. This will mean that if you are considering implants we will examine you and take x-rays to fully assess your bone level and suitability.

Benefits of Dental Implants:

  • No need to damage adjacent teeth – If an implant is needed to replace missing teeth there is no need to prepare the teeth on either side of the gap as you would have to with a bridge.
  • Cost Effective – – In the long term if implants are well maintained and looked after, they can be more cost effective than either bridges or dentures. Dental implants once placed can last a lifetime if taken care of properly
