Located on a lovely, quiet street in the heart of Chelsea, the Chelsea Green Dental Practice offers a welcoming and professional atmosphere from the moment you step in the door. The dentist in Chelsea was founded in 2017 by Dr Anna Maciag, who has many years’ experience in dentistry and is a Consultant in Oral Surgery with a special expertise in dental implants.
The beautiful dental practice that we see today is the result of a year-long project undertaken by Dr Maciag to convert a rundown, empty Georgian town into an elegant dental practice.
The team at the practice have been hand-selected to be the most welcoming and friendliest of people who are also highly respected in their fields. This team includes general dentists and specialists. The aim is to provide the best standards possible in modern dentistry with both general dentistry care and complex specialist procedures all available under the same roof. The patients are the centre of all the decisions made and every patient’s journey is individually tailored to them and their needs.
Teeth are a massive factor in a person’s first impression and according to surveys conducted by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, 48% of adults think a smile is the most memorable feature after they meet someone for the first time. If that smile is attractive, then the first impression is positive and in fact, those people with stained or crooked teeth were viewed as less attractive and even less confident than those with ‘perfect’ teeth.
In today’s dental market, there are many things that can be done to change a person’s smile and make them feel more confident in return. A great option for missing teeth is dental implants or a less invasive fix is teeth whitening. Below we explore these options a little further.
At Chelsea Green Dental Practice, they offer both at-home teeth whitening or in-surgery teeth whitening or often advise a bit of both, depending on the teeth shade that is desired by the patient. In-surgery options include Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed or Enlighten. They are both fast working and easy ways to whiten your teeth. The process is to apply the whitening gel to the teeth, being careful not to get it on the gums and using a special activated light to whiten them to the desired shade. The process usually takes around an hour so is great when time is a concern for the patient.
At-home teeth whitening involves having custom-built teeth trays made, which fit perfectly on your teeth and this means the activator will not spread onto your gums, which can be the cause of tooth sensitivity. The teeth whitening process involves wearing the gel-filled trays daily for an hour at a time for approximately two weeks.
These are often seen as the best solution for missing teeth. One of the reasons for this is that dental implants are the closest thing to your own natural teeth. Not having all your teeth can not only affect your confidence but it also affects your bite, how you chew, what foods you can eat and even the way you speak sometimes. Having missing teeth replaced can help with all these issues.
The dental implants are tiny screws made from titanium, which is a substance easily accepted by the body. Using a local anaesthetic, the implants are inserted into the jawbone and then left to heal for around 10 weeks. In this time, the implants have fused with the bone and then a crown can be fitted, which emerges from the gum and looks like your missing tooth. The crown can be colour matched with the surrounding teeth, so it doesn’t look out of place.
