The "New normal" dental visit at Carnegie Dental Clinic.
We are sending out a Coronavirus questionnaire via email before every appointment. We will also send out a medical history form on some occasions. These forms must be filled in and returned to us before your appointment. We will also send you details about the new patient journey.
On the day of your appointment please arrive at your appointment time and not before. If you were previously advised to shield we would advise you to notify our reception via a text message to 0756 6861938 when you have arrived for your appointment and stay in your car until the dentist or hygienist is ready for you, incase they are running late.
Please come to your appointment unaccompanied (unless you are under 16y) and with minimal baggage.
Our receptionist will take your temperature on arrival. Please arrive wearing a mask. You will be asked to use hand sanitiser upon entering the building.
Once your visit is complete the receptionist will make your next appointment and discuss any treatment quotes. If you are able to pay via card this method is preferred to cash.
If you have any queries relating to your treatments please let us know and a member of our team will give you a phone call or video call to discuss your concerns and queries once you get home.
Please be reassured that the steps we have taken will enable us to provide you with Dentistry safely during these challenging times.

This is a successful and simple method of brightening your smile and after one course of whitening most patients’ teeth will lighten by a minimum of 6 shades.
First of all we take impressions of your teeth to make your bespoke home whitening trays and then show you how to place hydrogen peroxide gel inside the trays.
As we use the very latest whitening systems you only have to wear your trays for 60 to 90 minutes each day and will notice the lightening effect on your teeth after only a few days.
Tooth whitening is most effective on mild to moderately discoloured teeth but all shades of teeth will become lighter from the process.We advise an AirFlowTM stain removal treatment before you begin your tooth whitening for optimum results.
First of all don’t panic as there are several ways of filling those gaps.
Solutions to replace a gap due to missing teeth include a partial denture, a dental bridge or a dental implant.
This is a false tooth that is mounted on a plate and sits in your mouth to fill the one or more gaps. They can look extremely natural and are made of rigid acrylic, flexible acrylic or a metal bar framework. A denture is removable and should be kept clean and removed at night. Generally no tooth reduction is required as the denture fits around your natural teeth.
A fixed bridge takes its strength from the teeth next to the gap. These anchor teeth (retainers) are joined to the false tooth (pontic) that sits in the gap. Modern ceramics are now strong enough to construct multi unit fixed bridges without any need for metal and so providing a much more natural appearance than traditional metal bonded to porcelain bridges.
A dental bridge is cemented onto the teeth and is not removable. The anchor teeth usually need reducing in size to allow the placement of the bridge and this can sometimes cause the anchor tooth to devitalize in which case a root treatment is necessary.
A Maryland bridge is a more conservative bridge where a false tooth is fixed in the gap by metal wings that bond to the inside surface of the adjacent teeth. These bridges involve very minimal tooth reduction but can occasionally debond and are only suitable in certain situations.
