Dental services

At Hitchin Dental, we believe that prevention is better than cure when it comes to your teeth. Everyone here is committed to providing our patients with the best preventative measures to ensure you achieve and maintain optimal oral health

Our dentists believe in a proactive approach to oral health and work closely with our dental hygienists to make sure you receive the best dental care advice and treatment. We advocate regular dental check-ups and hygienist visits to help you keep your teeth and gums healthy for longer.

At Hitchin Dental we believe a confident smile can open the doors of opportunity and with a team of highly-trained and experienced cosmetic dentists available to you, we can transform your smile into a work of art.

Using the latest technology, we enhance smiles with porcelain veneers, teeth whitening and teeth straightening. We also offer all-white restorations to repair damaged teeth without compromising aesthetics. Our options for replacing teeth include bridgework and dental implants, which look and function as your natural teeth.

Your dental hygiene treatment will be delivered by an experienced and professionally trained dental hygienist who will address issues such as the build up of plaque on your teeth. Your teeth will also be professionally cleaned with special equipment and pastes, a procedure which is commonly known as scaling and polishing.

The hygienist will also show you how to look after your teeth to help keep them free from plaque in the future and will give you expert advice on the best brushing and flossing techniques, as well as the use of interdental brushes.

When faced with missing teeth either due to deterioration or injury, modern dentistry offers patients a variety of options depending on individual preference and on treatment suitability. You have the choice of a dental bridge, a full or partial denture or a dental implant which is now one of the most popular and effective long-term options for our clients.

In some cases, where there are several missing teeth, we may recommend a combination of dental implants and a bridge to achieve the desired results. At an initial consultation. our experts will give you guidance on your available options.

Straighter teeth are healthier teeth! When your bite is properly aligned and the teeth are straightened, there are less places for food to get trapped and plaque to build up on. Deciding to get your teeth straightened is a long-term investment in your oral health as well a foundation for a beautiful straight new smile.

In recent years, modern dentistry has revolutionised the orthodontic world and patients can access an array of convenient alternatives to conventional metal braces. At Hitchin Dental, we offer the popular and effective Invisalign clear aligner system which delivers outstanding results in record time.

Do you have stained teeth that make you feel self-conscious about smiling? Professional teeth whitening offers a popular solution for staining caused by particular foods and drinks, by smoking or from certain medications.

Teeth whitening is a proven safe procedure that can lighten your teeth by several shades using a gentle dental bleaching agent. Results vary and are based on your initial tooth colour and the nature of your tooth staining. Choose Enlighten whitening which guarantees long-lasting results and low sensitivity or Poladay/night whitening which offers felxibility to whiten your teeth your way.

When confronted with the loss of your natural teeth, modern dentistry now means more choices and it’s not just a question of dental bridges or dentures. Dental implant surgery offers a potentially life-long solution to missing teeth which is comfortable and natural-looking.  

Implant dentistry offers a clinically proven and safe solution to getting back a great smile and being able to bite and chew with confidence. Dental implants also help restore function so you can chew and bite without your dentures falling out or having to stick to a life-long soft food diet.

With CEREC 3D technology our expert dental technicians can make a natural-looking and precisely designed ceramic crown which is crafted and fitted within a few hours. After carefully preparing the affected tooth, the dentist takes a 3D impression of the tooth and then this digital scan is used to create a virtual 3D model for the crown.

A Cerec same-day crown give you the same excellent restorative results you would expect to see from a traditional crown but without the inconvenience of multiple visits to the dentist and having to cope with a temporary crown.

Root canal treatment (also called Endodontics) is needed when the pulp inside your tooth becomes infected through tooth decay or is damaged by an injury to your mouth. This infection may spread through the root canal system, which could eventually lead to an abscess, causing a great deal of discomfort.

If root canal treatment is not carried out, the tooth may need to be taken out. Our dentists can perform root canal treatment to stop the infection from spreading and will preserve as much of your tooth as possible.
