Happy New Year From Yew Tree Dental

Happy New Year from Yew Tree Dental and our team of professionals based at our Slough dental clinic, we hope you had a relaxing and family-filled break over the festive period. Although it feels like we have been welcomed into 2021 with doom and gloom, we have some good news to share with you all… we are open!

Despite the latest lockdown measures, our team of dentists based at our Slough practice will be resuming operations as normal (well, the new normal!) – going forward, safety is going to be our top priority and we will be working tirelessly to ensure that our clinic is as safe and clean as possible so you, and our valued team, can feel confident whenever you visit our clinic.

We hope to see you all soon for a catch-up and a check-up, until then, stay safe and enjoy our latest blog!

Our Newest Investment

Ensuring that your teeth are clean and healthy is one of the main purposes of a dental visit, however, despite this, the traditional method of cleaning has remained unchanged for many years. Here at Yew Tree Dental, we decided to treat ourselves for Christmas by investing in an AquaCare Air Abrasion Unit. This innovative piece of technology allows us to provide routine dental procedures in a contact-free and minimally invasive manner – allowing for more comfortable and quicker cleaning procedures.

If you have ever been to the dentist in the past, then it is highly likely that a dentist has suggested you join them for a Hygienist session to remove any plaque and tartar that can build up on your teeth. This is usually carried out by a dentist, however, with the addition of our new AquaCare device, we can now approach stain removal and polishing treatments in a new and improved way, using a mix of air and water to brighten your smile.

The AquaCare Stain Removal Treatment can:

  • Brighten your smile and help remove food, coffee, wine and tobacco stains.
  • Provide a non-invasive, painless and more comfortable method of teeth cleaning.
  • Help you achieve brighter, cleaner and healthier teeth whilst helping restore your natural appearance.

Open For Treatment

We are still welcoming new and old patients alike, so if you have a dental concern, or are wanting to work towards a brighter and healthier smile, then get in touch with a member of our team today!

We know that everything going on with COVID-19 has made visiting more worrying than usual, however, it is still vital that you continue to join us for check-ups and treatments so we can help you maintain your oral hygiene, failing to do so can often bring about unforeseen health issues.

If you are wanting to join us for treatment, then please refrain from visiting our clinic to make an appointment, instead, we ask that you kindly reach out to a member of our team at info@yewtreedental.co.uk or 01753 522 500. Thank you!

Get Your Smile Back With Teeth Whitening At Yew Tree Dental

Get Your Smile Back With Teeth Whitening At Yew Tree Dental

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, it’s clear that 2020 isn’t exactly panning out anyone expected it to. For many of us, this has meant getting used to alternative ways of doing things and learning how to balance our work and home lives like never before. That’s why we’re trying our best to keep things as normal as possible at Yew Tree Dental.

As part of this mission, we’ve become more committed than ever to providing all of our patients with exemplary dental care, regardless of the reason for their visit. And, in addition to performing several general dentistry procedures in this time, we are also meeting a heightened demand for more cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening.

Looking to get your smile back? You’ve come to the right place.

 

What is teeth whitening?

It’s rare that any of us has a perfectly white set of teeth, but that doesn’t mean that things have to stay that way. Teeth whitening is a treatment in which bleaching agents are used to eliminate staining and discolouration that has emerged on our teeth over time. This can appear as a natural by-product of ageing, but can also be influenced by several lifestyle factors such as whether or not you’re a smoker and the regular consumption of drinks such as red wine, coffee or tea.

 

How does it work?

At Yew Tree Dental, patients can choose from a number of different teeth whitening options. The first of these takes place at our practice and involves the application of a light-activated gel to your teeth by one of our highly trained dental professionals.

If you’d rather complete this treatment in your own time, we can also provide you with the tools to carry out your own personal teeth whitening programme from the comfort of your own home. In this instance, we will create a mouthguard unique to the shape of your teeth and supply you with enough bleaching solution to last up to two weeks.

Alternatively, you can enhance your smile by combining the best elements of both of these treatments and we can help you put together a treatment plan to meet all of your individual aims and outcomes.

 

Book your treatment today

With results lasting up to three years, teeth whitening is certainly a viable way of leaving your teeth looking their best and restoring the confidence you’ve lost as a result of these less-than-desirable blemishes and stains. To book your teeth whitening treatment with Yew Tree Dental, call us on 01753 522500 or visit our website today.

What Constitutes A Dental Emergency?

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and the restrictions that have been imposed by the Government in order to fight this pandemic, we’ve been operating on an emergency basis since lockdown began. As a result, the best way to get in touch with us at present is by calling 07387 778 751 and seeking advice from our dental practice and Drs Neel and Natasha Shukla directly.

We see this service as a way of allowing all of our wonderful patients the opportunity to discuss any concerns or issues they may have about their oral health. During this unprecedented time, we like to think this has presented you all with a crucial form of support and we’ve been more than happy to talk through all of your problems and worries over the phone.

In terms of dental emergencies, we have been able to offer some form of intervention to those patients who require it. But with lockdown restrictions not yet lifted, although there have been encouraging signs that these will soon be eased, how do you know if you need to seek urgent dental assistance?

Dental Emergencies

Put simply, our governing bodies define a dental emergency as anyone who is suffering from facial swelling, any facial or dental trauma or pain that lasts for more than 48 hours that cannot be controlled with painkillers. Here at Yew Tree Dental Care & Implant Centre, we believe that a dental emergency encompasses a lot more than that; for instance a lost crown, a broken tooth, some sensitivity or bleeding gums.

As these are only a few examples, it is best to give us a call if you are uncertain about what you are experiencing and we will be there to help in any way we possibly can.

How We Can Help

As we understand that the line between needing urgent dental treatment and having to remain home can be a thin one, we also thought we’d share how we’ve been able to help patients get the care and support they need during lockdown. Adhering to social distancing, we’ve provided temporary filling material to patients with broken teeth and been able to supply patients suffering from abscesses with antibiotics on the same day where possible to prevent them having to travel. We’ve also given advice and instruction to patients on how to recement their own crowns back in place until we can once again provide them with the appropriate dental attention.

As previously mentioned, we’ve also been providing telephone advice and reassurance to patients with non-urgent dental concerns, and following up each and every phone call after a week to make sure everything is proceeding as expected.

Next Steps

With the Government stating that we have moved past the peak of the COVID-19 outbreak, we hope that we can get back to running our surgery as normal as soon as we can. As things are ever-changing, we will provide you all with a detailed update when we know more about how and when these restrictions will be eased. We have tentative plans to re-open our doors gradually to allow us to catch up urgent treatments and also non-urgent appointments such as dental examinations and hygiene visits, but we will make you all aware of this when we have a concrete cause of action in place.

For now, we will continue to provide the best service we can in this challenging climate and urge you to get in contact with us to discuss any oral health issue, big or small. Call us today on 07387 778 751 where Drs Neel and Natasha Shukla are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Take care, and we hope to see you all soon.
