Fantastic News!

At Smiles Dental, we’re super excited to announce the launch of Philip’s Zoom Whitening! With Zoom Whitening your smile can be six shades whiter in just one hour!Zoom Whitening

How does Zoom work?

Zoom Whitening involves two visits to your Smiles dentist. Your first visit will consist of a Dental Exam to ensure that the treatment is suitable for you. We’ll then fit you out for your custom-made trays (for your take home top-ups). At Smiles Dental our patient’s safety and comfort is always our top priority. We will never give anyone a whitening treatment (or any treatment) unless it is 100% safe to do so. At your second visit, your Zoom treatment can begin.

Here’s how Zoom Whitening works:
1.Your Smiles dentist will cover your gums, lips and the skin around your lips, leaving only your teeth exposed to the special Zoom laser light.

2.Your dentist will apply the Zoom whitening gel that is formulated to work with the Zoom laser light. The gel and the light work together to gently penetrate the top layers of your teeth to remove discolouration and stains.

3.The gel will be applied for three or four fifteen-minute cycles, after which the gel is removed and your teeth are cleaned each time.

4.Once the cycles have been completed, your teeth will be cleaned one last time and you will go home with a brighter, whiter smile. Now simply enjoy your new white smile.

Safe and speedy

Zoom Whitening is 100% medically and clinically sound. Effective and speedy, it can offer teeth that are six to eight shades whiter in just an hour. In the space of your lunch break, you will be on the way to a more confident smile. If you’ve got a big event like a wedding, holiday or interview on the horizon, Zoom is the perfect confidence booster.

How much does Zoom Whitening cost?

For the price of just €475 you will get your Dental Exam, Zoom Whitening and take home top-ups. This is the fast and easy way to get your smile positively sparkling for summer. Contact your local Smiles Dental for more and to book your appointment.

Don’t forget – follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to keep up with all the news at Smiles Dental. We are delighted to announce that we’re now offering teeth straightening treatments at Smiles Dental Swords!

From fixed braces to short-term treatments like Invisalign and Six Month Smiles, you could have a straighter smile in no time at all.

Straighter teeth can increase your confidence

Our orthodontic treatments at Swords will be carried out by dentist Dr Khalid Alfarsi, who has a wealth of experience in fitting braces and administering short-term straightening treatments.

Many adults have dreams of straighter teeth, but feel that they’ve somehow missed the boat in their younger years. They may associate braces and orthodontic treatments with teenagers and feel unsure as how to move forward.

They know that a straighter smile can lead to increased confidence in all areas of life, something acknowledged by recent research. It can give people the motivation to speak more clearly at work, to socialize more frequently and to generally stand taller. A seemingly small change can influence your very success in your day-to-day life.
straighter teeth

Fixed Braces

Fixed braces are an option for more severe misalignment problems. These are the types of braces that you see people most commonly wearing. Treatment times are longer, but the results are more dramatic and they can correct all forms of misalignment.

You can opt for visible braces (metal or ceramic) or something more discreet, like lingual or Incognito braces. Dr. Alfarsi will advise you on the option that would suit best.

Invisalign and Six Month Smiles

Invisalign and Six Month Smiles are short-term treatments that can give you straighter teeth in just six months.

Invisalign is a teeth-straightening treatment that fits straight into your lifestyle. It consists of custom made aligners, which are fitted over your teeth, similar to the way a retainer works. Over time, your teeth are moved gently into alignment. The great thing about Invisalign is that they are totally removable when it comes to eating, drinking and brushing your teeth.

Six Month Smiles is a treatment that involves the use of a clear brace, made of brackets and wires used to close gaps and straighten the front six-eight teeth. Like Six Month Smiles, the treatment offers minimal discomfort, is easy to fit and barely visible to the naked eye. Both can offer quick results in just six months.

We’re currently offering FREE consultations for teeth straightening treatments at Smiles Dental Swords!

Dental Anxiety: What is it?

Dental anxiety is defined as experiencing feelings of fear and nervousness towards going to the dentist. The level of anxiety varies per patient. For some, it might be no more than a feeling of apprehension and slight fear. In more extreme cases, the patient may completely avoid appointments to the dentist, even to the detriment of their own health. They might ignore obvious gum problems or severe toothaches, because they feel trapped by fear and anxiety.

nervous patient

How do we deal with a nervous patient?

At Smiles Dental, we encounter nervous patients every single day. Differing in intensity, our friendly dentists and clinical teams are fully experienced at dealing with all variations of the nervous patient.

Our dentists adopt an “empathetic, patient-focused” approach. We begin by talking about how you feel about the dentist. We acknowledge any feelings of anxiety and create some context to them. We then decide on a practical solution together, to deal with the feelings of nervousness.

It’s important that you can communicate clearly and openly with your dentist about how you feel. That way, you’ll be able to reach an excellent solution together. Exceptional dental care involves ease of communication and trust between a patient and a dentist.

What are some some options for the nervous patient?

There are many options for dealing with a nervous patient. Please note: Availability of methods varies per dentist, specialization and extremity of the nervous patient case.

Example treatments:
  • Negotiation and communication with your dentist
  • Seating adjustments
  • Listening to music during a treatment
  • Relaxation techniques
  • CBT: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy – This is a method of talking and discussing a problem and reframing it in a more positive light.
  • Dental Hypnosis
  • Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) – This is an approach to communication used to reprogramme a patient’s attitude to the dentist.
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Sedation – Sometimes referred to as “sleep dentistry” – this relaxes a patient in the dentist’s chair.

Dentist Spotlight: Dr.Philip Christie

Dr.Philip Christie from Smiles Dental Dundrum provided some of the above information from his experience of dealing with nervous patients. He has been practicing dental science for over 36 years. Dr. Christie has studied various models of psychotherapeutics and has completed a Master’s Degree in CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). Having spent most of his working life dealing with anxious people in the dental chair, he is often called the “Therapist Dentist.” Dr.Christie believes that a caring, open and communicative approach to a nervous patient will put them at ease and help them work through any anxiety.

Our experienced, friendly team are dedicated to helping you work through any anxiety you may have.

Call your local Smiles Dental to book a nervous patient consultation. We look forward to giving you the quality, caring dental care that you deserve.
