We Are Open Again!

  • We are now offering our complete range of treatments and will always try and deal with patients in pain immediately. We are also seeing patients for their regular check-ups. We advise patients to attend a check-up as we understand oral care and hygiene may have been missed during the lockdown period.
  • You can speak to a receptionist on 01 730 812 022 between the hours of 9:00am and 5pm Monday to Friday.
  • Please do not arrive at the surgery without an appointment.
  • If you have a dental emergency outside of working hours please call 01 730 812 022 and our answerphone will give further information.
  • If you are suffering from severe uncontrollable pain, bleeding or swelling which is resulting in difficulty breathing, please go directly to your nearest accident and emergency hospital.
  • We have introduced strict procedures and enhanced PPE for the protection of our patients and staff. This will greatly lengthen appointment times so we ask you to be understanding. Please do not expect your treatment to necessarily be on the same day as your assessment.

    A Whiter Smile

    TEETH WHITENING

    Teeth can lose their natural whiteness for a number of reasons including diet, ageing, certain medications, smoking and trauma, but a noticeably brighter smile can be achieved with teeth whitening – a safe, chemical process that eliminates discolouration.

    Teeth whitening will only work on natural teeth and will not be effective on restorations such as crowns, veneers or dentures. However, these can be replaced to match newly whitened teeth.
    At St. Oswald’s we recommend tray whitening, a time proven treatment that offers a simple, safe way to brighten your smile. This highly effective procedure requires very thin fitted trays to be constructed that are unique to the patient. The patient then applies whitening gel to the inside of the trays which are then worn at convenient times. The effect will be noticeable after only a few days. In the initial stages, the dentist has to periodically monitor the results.

    When the patient has achieved an optimal result this can be maintained by further single applications every few weeks.

    But before we start we assess each patient to try and work out what is causing the discolouration and give an indication of how long the treatment could take. Occasionally we may advise against teeth whitening.
