It’s easy to register as a patient with our dentist in Plymouth

Finding a dentist in Plymouth can be difficult at the best of times. Here at Meavy Way Dental Practice we offer a variety of treatments ranging from general check-ups to teeth whitening and veneers. We understand that a smile is more than just having clean teeth and we want to help you achieve your smile’s full potential. People are unsatisfied with their smile for all sorts of reasons, such as their teeth are crooked or uneven, they have chipped a tooth and it is visible when they smile, or their teeth are not as white as they used to be, the list is almost endless. If you are not happy with the way your smile looks for whatever reason we advise that you book a consultation appointment to discuss your concerns with one of our practitioners, as they will be able to guide you in the right direction and inform you about treatments that could benefit you. For those people who have been involved in an accident and damaged a tooth or are suffering from tooth pain, have noticed swelling or an abscess, we provide emergency appointments on a priority basis.

Taking your tooth care seriously

Many people do not realise the importance of visiting our dentist in Plymouth on a regular basis. People often postpone having a check-up or getting treatment because they are too busy or too nervous or too blasé, but in reality avoiding visiting your dental practice will only result in additional problems occurring which will then lead to the need for more time-consuming, more expensive and more complicated treatments. We generally advise people to have two dental check-ups a year, but this can vary depending on your individual circumstances. We also recommend that you have at least one professional clean a year as this can help to avoid things such as gingivitis and gum disease. Sometimes plaque can build up in areas that are difficult for you to reach, but our practitioners will make sure any plaque is removed, even if it has hardened.

Cosmetic dental treatments available

At our dentist in Plymouth we offer more than just standard dental appointments. It is important for you to get regular check-ups, but we really want you to get the most out of your smile. Sometimes people are not happy with certain aspects of their smile, such as how white it is or how even it appears to be. There are an array of treatments now available dedicated to ironing out your smile’s imperfections, such as white fillings, porcelain veneers and teeth whitening treatments.

Some people feel incredibly self-conscious if they have been provided with a metallic filling as they are often easily noticeable when people are talking or smiling. White fillings are made to match the shade of your natural teeth so they blend in as much as possible, leaving people feeling more confident in themselves when it comes to smiling. Discolouration and stains can leave people feeling insecure as well, but teeth whitening treatment can reduce the appearance of these stains, brightening your teeth by several shades and reducing discolouration too. Having a brighter, whiter smile can help prevent signs of premature ageing, as well as boost your self-esteem.
