Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

On your first visit to SmileWorks Dental Kensington, you can expect a comprehensive examination of your teeth, gums, jaw, and bite and a discussion with your dentist about their findings and, if necessary, a personalised treatment plan.

After the examination, your dentist will discuss their findings with you and, if necessary, outline a personalised treatment plan tailored to your needs and goals. This is also a perfect time for you to ask any questions. We aim to ensure you leave your first visit feeling well-informed and confident about your dental health and future treatments.

At SmileWorks, we understand that dental anxiety is a real concern and offer a range of solutions to ensure a comfortable and stress-free experience. The experienced dentists of SmileWorks Dental Kensington are prepared to take the time to listen to any worries and address them, making your primary concern their primary concern.

We offer relaxation techniques and distraction methods like music or television. The dentists will thoroughly discuss the options with you and help you decide the best course of action based on your needs and the nature of the treatment.

At SmileWorks Dental Kensington, dentists prioritise your comfort and well-being while helping you achieve a beautiful smile.

This largely depends on the type of dental procedure you’ve had. You will often need to adjust your eating and drinking habits temporarily. For instance, after a tooth extraction or oral surgery, SmileWorks Dental Kensington recommends sticking to soft foods and liquids for a few days to allow the treatment area to heal.

You should avoid hot food or drink until the local anaesthetic has worn off, as you might burn your mouth without realising it. Also, refrain from eating on the side of your mouth where the procedure was done to prevent any discomfort or damage.

For procedures like teeth whitening, you may be asked to avoid certain foods and drinks that could stain your teeth, such as coffee, tea, red wine, and highly pigmented foods like berries, for a couple of days.

Following the specific post-procedure instructions your dentist provides at SmileWorks Dental Kensington is important. If you have any concerns or questions, please contact us. The dental team is here to support you and ensure you have the best possible post-treatment experience.

Maintaining good dental hygiene at home is crucial for ensuring the health of your teeth and gums. There are several ways you can improve your dental hygiene.

  • Firstly, it’s essential to brush your teeth at least twice a day, in the morning and before bed, using toothpaste that contains fluoride. Consider using an electric toothbrush, as it can clean teeth more effectively than manual brushing.
  • Flossing daily is also vital as it helps remove plaque and food particles between your teeth and under the gum line, areas that your toothbrush can’t reach.
  • Using an antibacterial mouthwash can help to kill bacteria that cause plaque and bad breath.
  • A healthy diet that is low in sugar can also contribute to good dental health. Limit your sugary drinks and snack intake, which can lead to tooth decay.
  • Drinking plenty of water, especially after meals, can help rinse food particles away.
  • Lastly, remember that regular dental hygiene check-ups with your dentist are essential.

At SmileWorks Dental Kensington, we can provide professional cleaning to remove tartar build-up and give personalised advice on optimising your at-home dental care routine based on your individual needs.

Dentists often recommend scheduling a comprehensive dental check-up and cleaning every six months to ensure optimal oral health. However, depending on your oral health status, we may advise more frequent visits. Regular visits allow us to monitor your oral health closely and provide timely treatment if necessary, helping you maintain a healthy and beautiful smile.

During these appointments, you’ll also have a check-up with a dentist to ensure any potential issues are detected early.

We understand that dental treatments can be a significant investment. At SmileWorks Dental Kensington, we’re committed to making quality dental care accessible to everyone. To this end, we offer several payment plans and financing options to assist with the cost of treatments.

SmileWorks Dental Kensington tailors payment plans and financing options to each individual’s financial situation. Please keep in mind that the availability of these options may depend on the type of treatment and its cost.

At SmileWorks Dental Kensington, we are knowledgeable and always happy to answer any questions. As one of the friendliest dentists in the area, we at SmileWorks Dental Kensington are committed to providing quality dental care to our clients in an affordable and financially feasible way.
