How to Get Rid of Your Teeth Imperfections

June 12th, 2013

Your teeth are a very important feature on your face. It can be the first thing that someone notices when they look at you, so it’s important you make a great first impression and show off your confident smile. Many people are very conscious of their teeth due to a number of imperfections. Fortunately we here at Nelson Road Dental have a solution to get you that perfect smile.

A Solution for Stained Teeth

Our teeth are prone to staining due to a number of damaging chemicals they are exposed to. Smoking can have a huge impact on the state of your teeth. It can cause discolouration, as well as a build-up of plaque and tarter. Fizzy drinks and coffee can also cause a lot of damage to your teeth. They again can cause staining and discoloration, fizzy drinks can also erode away the enamel on your teeth, leaving them weaker and more sensitivity. Fitting veneers to your teeth can automatically enhance your smile, leaving you with a pearly white finish.

Chipped of Broken Teeth

Excessive grinding can cause damage to your teeth, leaving an uneven smile. Chipped or broken teeth can also have a huge impact on the overall appearance of your smile; this can cause a decline in confidence for many people. Veneers are fitted over the front of your teeth to provide a uniform finish. They can be fitted over all of your teeth, or if you have one or two chipped or broken teeth, the veneer can be adjusted so that it matches with the colour and appearance of your other teeth.

Gaps and Spaces Between Teeth

People with gaps in their teeth are often left embarrassed or self-conscious with their smile. We can close the gaps easily by fitting veneers. This will provide an even finish, so you can flash your smile with confidence.

We understand how important your teeth are, you use them for eating, talking and smiling. We also recognise the impact that they can have on your confidence and day to day lives. That’s why we offer our specialist services to help you to improve the overall appearance of them.

Our professional and experienced staff are available to put you at ease and discuss the best solution for you. We realise that many people are scared of the dentist, which is why we create a friendly environment for you to discuss any fears you may have, so we can reassure you to the best of our ability.

You’re Never Too Old to Improve Your Smile

February 20th, 2013

Many people associate orthodontic work with those difficult teenage years, when braces were generally accepted as a common sight. As we reach adulthood, many people shy away from the idea of having teeth straightening as they feel that they have somehow missed the opportunity to improve their smile.

In fact, more and more adults are making the decision to revisit their orthodontist and set about creating a confident, healthy smile. And the great news is that methods have improved dramatically over the years, so there is now a whole range of options for you to choose from.

If you have concerns about the idea of having a visible brace, we have a number of solutions to help. For example, the Invisalign system uses clear aligners to apply gentle pressure over a number of weeks without the need for wires or brackets. Alternatively, our highly skilled experts can apply lingual braces, which are fitted to the inside of your teeth in order to carry out their work with complete discretion.

If speed is your priority, ask your orthodontist about the six month smile technique, which is a safe and painless way of achieving straighter teeth within a short period of time. If this process is not suitable for you, a Damon brace is the latest design of traditional brace, which is more compact and works more quickly than conventional alternatives.

Here at Nelson Road Dental Practice we believe that a new smile can help to boost your self-confidence and make a genuine difference to your life. We have helped many patients across Gillingham, Rochester, Chatham and the surrounding areas to realise the potential of their smiles. To find out how we could help you too, call us on 01634 851 317.

Is Your Smile Giving the Right Impression?

January 29th, 2013

Studies have shown that your smile can have a huge impact on the way you are received by others. Even without knowing it, human beings make snap judgements of each other based on physical appearance and this will influence the first impression that you leave behind.

In random surveys, members of the public would be more likely to doubt the intelligence and social skills of a person whose teeth are discoloured, crooked or missing than the same person shown with a neat, white smile.

The impact of these unconscious judgements could be far reaching. In situations such as client meetings, job interviews or your first encounter with a new partner’s family, the last thing you want to worry about is the idea that your teeth may be misrepresenting you.

In the same way that you would dress smartly for an important occasion, having confidence in your smile can boost your morale and help you to portray the best possible you.

Here at Nelson Road Dental Practice we understand that the effects of your smile go deeper than just a cosmetic impression and can have a real impact on your confidence and happiness in social situations. We believe that dentistry can make a genuine and lasting improvement to people’s well-being, from a simple whitening to subtle fillings or a gradual reshaping.

December 27th, 2012

Have people assumed that 2012 has been a bad year? Do you often get asked to cheer up despite feeling happy? Do you fear the camera at events and occasions?

A New Year often means a new start which is why many people set resolutions to achieve what they want for the next 12 months. But rather than giving up before January ends, why not make your New Year something to smile about with help from our orthodontists. We will help you on your journey to live your life again and show everyone just how happy you are.

These treatments are available to read about via the orthodontists page on our website and also the previous posts we have written, however we’re more than happy to discuss this with you directly over the phone or face to face.

Brace Yourself: Alternative Treatments for Achieving Straighter Teeth

December 3rd, 2012

Many people dread this time of year. Not because of the cost of presents or the chore of trying to find a new outfit but because they don’t want to be caught on one of the many cameras that capture what should be a joyous occasion. If this sounds like you, and your smile is getting in the way of you having a good time, then we at Nelson Road Dental are here to help with our experienced orthodontists.

Although there are many children and teenagers that have corrective methods to improve crooked teeth, we understand that some people go into adulthood still feeling conscious of their smile and take the steps to improve this in later years.

We also understand that what often puts many people off is the thought of having metal braces that are not very subtle. Fortunately, advances in the dental industry have meant that there are now alternatives to metal braces which may appeal to a wider market; here are just some of the options available.


This is a very popular choice for many adults and late teens because Invisalign braces are subtle and don’t require the need for wires or brackets. The other benefit is that these use slight pressure to move your teeth into position, making it a more comfortable way to get your desired look.

Six Month Smile:

Although not suitable for everyone, we undertake a consultation with each patient to see whether they qualify for the six month smile. If this is the case, the method is painless and if started now, you’ll be seeing results by the summer.

Damon Brace:

This brace is the newest addition to the family of conventional braces. Fitted on the outside, the design is sleek creating less friction and showing results in less time than the conventional brace we all know. Suitable for particularly crooked teeth, this is the method if you want quicker results.

We hope this helps you in finding a solution to fixing your smile. We at Nelson Road avoid extractions at any cost so will discuss other options with you so if this a matter you are wishing to discuss, please don’t hesitate to get in touch via the details on our contact us page.

September 21st, 2012

A smile expresses happiness, joy and excitement and a lot of people say that the thing that first attracted them to their partner was their smile; what a wonderful thing a smile is. What happens then when you’re so insecure about smile that you actively try to hide it? Whether your teeth have been discoloured from years of coffee, tea or smoking or your teeth are misaligned, feeling that your smile should be covered up means that you can never fully enjoy social situations and make the most of life. Here at Nelson Road Dental we believe that everyone should have a smile that lights up the room but most importantly, a smile that you’re happy to show to the world and thanks to cosmetic dentistry in Kent that can be a reality sooner than you’d think.

Cosmetic dentistry is a term that encompasses a range of procedures to address a variety of problems which includes teeth whitening, veneers and gum lifts. So what are the benefits of the cosmetic dentistry options you have here at Nelson Road Dental?

Luckily, here at Nelson Road Dental we use the latest in dentistry technology and as a result, you can see impressive changes in no time at all. Our smile strips for example are an efficient, painless and stress-free way to whiten your teeth; simply wear the smile strips, which contain the right amount of whitening gel, for half an hour every day for 14 days and you’ll begin to see results after only 3 days.

Top Tips on Keeping Your Teeth Brilliantly White!

August 17th, 2012

We all want a beautiful smile and brilliantly white teeth, but it isn’t always easy to keep out teeth sparkling white ourselves. That’s why many people are turning to teeth whitening services to get that much sought after, perfect smile.

Here at Nelson Road Dental we specialise in teeth whitening, we offer affordable and safe solutions to brighten your smile. One of the services we have to offer is Smilestrips, this is an efficient and painless way of teeth whitening. Smilestrips are whitening gel strips that can be moulded over your teeth. All you need to do is wear the strips for at least 30 minutes a day for at least 14 days, many people see results in as little as 3 days.

Once you have brilliantly white teeth it’s important that you keep them looking great, here are some handy tips to help you maintain that stunning smile:

-    Eat hard fruit and veg like celery, carrots and apples. Eating them helps scrape away plaque which makes teeth look dull
-    Try to avoid drinking tea, coffee, cola and red wine; they are renowned for staining your teeth. You also need to be careful when eating berries like cherries, raspberries and blackberries as these can also affect the colour of your teeth. Make sure you brush your teeth after eating them
-    No Smoking! Smoking is not only harmful to your health but the nicotine can penetrate the enamel and leave brown stains on your teeth that aren’t easy to remove
-    Visit your dentist regularly to keep your smile healthy and white
-    Make sure your toothpaste or your mouthwash contain fluoride which helps prevent decay
-    Don’t scrub your teeth too hard! Make sure your toothbrush has soft bristles – brushing too hard can erode the enamel on your teeth
