An Introduction To The Lighthouse Dental Practice: Welcome and Overview

First-Class General And Cosmetic Dentistry For Our Ipswich Patients

Welcome to the first Lighthouse Dental Practice blog. In future articles, we will look at specific dental treatments and other issues surrounding oral health care. We are always happy to receive suggestions, so, if there is a topic that you would like us to cover, do please let us know. In our first blog though, we will give a brief overview of the services that we offer to patients from the Ipswich area.

General dental care

Preventative dentistry is important, and, along with good personal care at home, should mean that the need for treatment is kept to an absolute minimum. We recommend that patients see us every six months for a checkup, unless your dentist has recommended more regular appointments. Hygienist visits are also an excellent way to help keep your teeth clean and to avoid gum disease, the leading cause of tooth loss in the UK.

Children should also start to see their dentist from a young age. In fact, you can bring your child to us from around one year old. Whilst treatment is very unlikely at this age, early exposure to the dental environment does help to reduce the chances of developing a phobia about visiting the dentist later on in life. We also offer fissure sealants to our younger patients which helps to prevent tooth decay.

Cosmetic dentistry

As well as offering general preventative dental care, along with restoration where needed, we also offer our patients a wide range of cosmetic dental procedures to help them achieve a great smile. We will cover these in more detail in future blogs, but for now, here is a brief overview for just some of our treatments:

Teeth whitening

In reality, the whitening toothpaste that you may see advertised will make very little difference to the whiteness of your teeth. For a safe and effective teeth whitening procedure, please call our Ipswich dental team and we can give you a whiter smile to be proud of!

White fillings

An excellent alternative to dark amalgam fillings where appropriate. No more dark fillings that show when you laugh; our white coloured fillings really help to improve the appearance of a treated tooth.

Dental veneers

Where teeth are severely stained or have suffered minor damage such as cracks or chips, dental veneers can be an excellent way to restore the appearance of your teeth by placing a very thin porcelain veneer on the surface to mask the defects below.

Dental implants

Dental implants are increasingly becoming the first choice of many people who need to replace a missing tooth. By placing the implant into the bone structure and allowing them to fuse before adding a dental crown, we can offer our patients an extremely strong, secure and long-lasting tooth replacement.

These are just a few of the treatments that we offer at the Lighthouse Dental Practice but we’ll cover many more in detail in future blogs, so please check back regularly. We also offer facial rejuvenation treatments to complement our cosmetic dentistry as well as sedation services for our more anxious patients.

Why not take a look around our website for a full range of the services that we offer?
