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.

Practice Is Now Open

Our Practice Is Now Open – Here’s How We Plan To Proceed Under Government Guidelines

With the country easing out of lockdown and some of the more severe restrictions around COVID-19 beginning to be relaxed, we’re delighted to let all of you know that our practice is once again open for business. We hope that this is the start of our journey towards being once again able to provide exemplary dental care to all of our patients in a much more conventional manner, face-to-face and doing what we do best. 

Yet, for the time being, we will be implementing a number of strict safety measures in order to ensure that the risk of any of our patients or staff coming to harm during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is reduced as much as possible. 

Although dental practices are commonly perceived to be one of the most sanitary environments you can come into contact with, we are still making every effort to ensure our practice is as safe as possible. Guided by government advice, we will be sticking closely to these precautionary measures for the foreseeable future. You can find a list of these below. Alternatively, please visit our Facebook page or our Instagram page to watch a short video which explains these changes in detail.  

Safety measures

  • Social distancing: We will be doing our bit to ensure that all unnecessary social contact is reduced. This means that you should only attend our practice if you have an appointment booked. Where possible, we would like to ask you to give reception a call to let us know that you have arrived. You may be asked to wait in the car until we are ready to see you. This is to make sure that we are sticking to our policy of a maximum of 2 patients in the waiting room at one time. When you enter the practice, you can keep your distance from others by following the markers on the floor. You should also attend your appointment alone, unless circumstances dictate otherwise (e.g. you are a parent/guardian or require a translator). 
  • Protective measures: At this time, we will be subjecting our practices to enhanced cleaning processes. This means that we will be spacing out appointments in order to carry out these protective measures effectively. After every appointment, the rooms will be completely decontaminated. We will also be conducting many treatments whilst wearing the highest level of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). This will ensure that both parties will be kept safe. But don’t worry, it’s still us underneath! We have also removed magazines/books from our waiting room and you will no longer have access to our drinking water dispenser. Our reception task has also been fitted with a perspex screen and our toilets will also be closed during this time. 
  • Reduced treatments: Government advice is currently to reduce aerosol-generating procedures where possible, so our hygienists will be offering hand scaling instead of that aided by ultrasonic water jet scalers. Polishing procedures will also be conducted in a different way, with stain removal assisted by the use of polishing strips. We’re also aware that the way that appointments are currently being spaced out means that we will not be able to see as many people throughout the day. To counter this backlog, we are opening some Sunday clinics to make sure that you will be seen in good time. 
  • Help from you: We realise that these safety measures will only be able to achieve success with compliance from all of our patients. With this in mind, we’d like to ask you to do a few important things to help us out. Firstly, when attending the practice, please bring with you as few belongings as possible so as to reduce the possibility of cross-infection. We would also appreciate it if you could use the alcohol hand gel at reception when you arrive. As the safety of all of our staff and patients is very important to us, one of our clinicians may ask to take your temperature upon your arrival, so please don’t be offended if this occurs. 
  • COVID-19 symptoms: Please do not attend the practice if you or anyone else in your household has symptoms of COVID-19. If this is the case, we would like to ask you to cancel your appointment by giving us a call as soon as you can. If you do choose to attend whilst displaying these symptoms, we reserve the right to refuse you treatment. 

A Thank You From Us

We realise that the last few months have been difficult, challenging and frustrating for everyone, which is why we’d like to thank you for your incredible patience during this uncertain time. Over the next few, crucial months, we will do everything in our power to provide all of you with the dental care and support you need and we ask that you do your very best to help us to do so. 

As always, we welcome any feedback and will be helpful to answer any questions you may have. We look forward to seeing you all very soon.

COVID-19: An Update

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, it’s with great sadness that we’ve had to temporarily close our practice for all treatments. As official guidance from the Government continues to focus on reducing social contact and only leaving our houses to complete essential tasks, this is a safety measure that has been taken by all dental care providers across the country. At Yew Tree Dental Care and Implant Centre, the health and wellbeing of our patients has always been our main priority, so we believe that this is absolutely the right course of action to take.

Since we opened over forty years ago, we have never had to close our doors to the public, so we hope you will join us in recognising the seriousness of our current national and global situation and recognise that this is not something that we would have done were it not completely necessary.

Emergency dental care

Although we have already contacted patients directly to rebook any scheduled appointments they may have had, we will be operating on an emergency basis should you need to get in touch with us. Taking the lead from the Chief Dental Officer, we may be able to arrange some support and/or treatment for you if you are experiencing a genuine dental emergency. If this is the case, you can get in contact with Dr Neel and Natasha Shukla by calling 07387 778 751. Please keep in mind that we will only be able to provide medical care if your issue is posing a significant threat to your health.

We also realise that many of you may be feeling anxious or uncertain during this time, so both Dr Neel and Dr Natasha will be able to provide you with reassurance or advice over the phone should you need it.

The importance of following advice

Although closing our practice on a temporary basis was something that we hoped to avoid, we are fully aware that, by doing so, we are contributing to the nation’s efforts to halt the spread of COVID-19 and working towards a time when the country will once again be able to operate as normal. Following advice from the appropriate sources of authority will help to save lives during this pandemic, so we urge you to stay home and only go out when it is absolutely necessary to do so.

Keep updated

In order to keep updated as to when we will be re-opening, please like us on Facebook (Yew Tree Dental Care and Implant Centre) and follow us on Instagram (@YewTreeDentalCareSlough).

We’d like to thank you for your continued support during this difficult time. We hope you stay safe and well and we look forward to seeing you all very soon.
