By assisting you to create this treatment framework, a step-by-step approach can be tailored to restoring function, aesthetics or simply maintaining your oral and general health for a lifetime.

Whether you require simple regular hygiene maintenance or complex reconstructive dentistry and a cosmetic makeover, we are able to provide the solution that is right for you.

Teeth whitening

At home teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to lighten the shade of your teeth. The process involves fabricating a thin, clear inconspicuous tray moulded to your teeth. A whitening gel is dispensed into these trays and worn either overnight or during the day at your convenience.

The course of whitening treatment is generally 10-14 nights/days although results vary from case to case. Once you are happy with the new shade of your teeth, you may cease the whitening process. Alternatively you can also whiten your teeth in our surgery using a much more concentrated whitening solution and special whitening lamp.

Dental implants

Dental implants are a technique used to replace either a single tooth or several missing teeth. Implants and their attached crowns are the tooth replacement option which most replicates the look and function of natural teeth. Tooth replacement is achieved by the insertion of a metal tooth root (titanium screw) into the jawbone as an anchor for the artificial tooth (crown) to be placed onto.

This technique is suitable for most cases where the tooth has been missing and adequate bone level remains. Consultation with Dr Malakonakis will determine whether a dental implant is the best option for you. Implants can also be used to help support and stabilise a denture and provide you with greater confidence and comfort.
