Need orthodontic treatment? Teens and adults alike can benefit from a discreet and comfortable way to straighten teeth.
What are Invisalign aligners?
Invisalign aligners are an alternative to bracket and wire style fixed braces. Rather than one single appliance worn for the duration of a treatment, Invisalign involves a series of custom-made clear plastic aligners that work sequentially to straighten teeth over a period of time. Patients experience none of the restrictions associated with wearing fixed orthodontic braces and all of the comfort associated with discreet clear aligner treatment.
How do Invisalign aligners straighten teeth?
Our Invisalign dentist in Chesham will create a unique digital treatment plan that maps out the exact movements your teeth need to straighten. Each Invisalign aligner is designed to apply just the right amount of force at the right time. Once your last aligner has been worn, you will have a straighter, healthier smile that you can be proud of.
What benefits does Invisalign treatment bring?
The primary benefit is that Invisalign aligners are designed to be incredibly discreet. People won’t know that you’re even wearing them unless you decide to tell them. In addition and unlike fixed metal braces, they can be removed when eating, drinking and brushing or for special occasions meaning you have full control. Finally, there are no sharp brackets and wires to worry about that might otherwise catch on your mouth and tongue.
Who is Invisalign treatment for?
If you are a teen or adult looking for a discreet way to straighten teeth, then come and talk to our York House Dental team. Invisalign are designed to fix many common bite issues without impinging on your busy life, so if you do want a straighter smile but don’t want the hassle of wearing fixed metal braces, come and talk to our Invisalign dentist here in Chesham.
Is Invisalign treatment expensive?
In many cases the cost of Invisalign is similar to the cost of fixed metal braces. That said each case is different and our dentist will determine how complex your case is and how many aligners you need.Here at York House, we have a variety of flexible payment plans available that allow you to spread the cost of treatment, so give us a call and make an enquiry.
Experience the gold standard of missing tooth replacement using the latest dental implant technology.
Are dental implants safe?
Dental implants have been around for over 50 years and as implant technology continues to advance, today’s dental implants are sophisticated oral devices placed by highly-trained individuals. As such, modern-day implants provide one of the most reliable and safest ways to replace teeth.
Is a dental implant procedure painful?
Our implant dentists here in Chesham use the latest technology accompanied by gentle dental techniques to ensure that any dental implant surgery is as comfortable as possible. Typically, patients don’t feel any discomfort during surgery at all and as well as anesthetic, we can also administer the latest conscious sedation if you feel particularly nervous.
What can dental implants be used for?
Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, several teeth or as part of several implants supporting an entire arch of teeth.
Am I eligible for a dental implant procedure?
Provided that you are in good oral and general health you should be eligible for dental implant treatment. In general, you are a good candidate for an implant-based restoration if you:
Have one or more missing teeth
Have sufficient jaw bone or are eligible for a bone graft
Have a jawbone that is fully developed (typically an adult)
Don’t suffer with a medical condition that prevents or slows bone growth
Can commit to a process lasting several months or more and…
You don’t smoke or are willing to quit
Are dental implants expensive?
Initially at least, dental implants may be more expensive than other missing teeth treatments however once in place, dental implants can last for many years. They regularly outlast other forms of restoration such as dentures or bridges and as such, they represent a sound long-term investment in your smile – an investment that will save you money in the long run.
Avoid the need for extensive or costly treatments with regular dental check-ups and hygiene cleaning.
What catchment areas do you serve?

Our professional teeth whitening treatments provide a safe and effective way to put the sparkle back into your smile. Alternatively, why not invest in the latest dental veneers to reshape the look of your smile and improve its appearance.
Is teeth whitening safe?
Because our chairside and take-home teeth whitening treatments are supervised by our dentists, you are in very safe hands. During an initial free consultation we’ll take a closer look at your teeth and gums to ensure they remain in good condition with no cavities. If this isn’t the case, our dentist or hygienist in Chesham will look to treat your condition first.
When will I see results with professional teeth whitening treatment?
Patients should see results from chairside teeth whitening of at least several shades immediately after their 1 hour treatment - although the level of whiteness depends upon how white a patient’s teeth are to begin with. Conversely, because dental take home kits use a lesser strength bleaching agent, patients can expect to see a whiter brighter smile within 7-14 days.
What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells designed to be worn over the front surface of your natural teeth. Designed to cover areas that may otherwise be chipped, cracked, blemished or misaligned they can be colour-matched to your existing smile to create an instant and flawless look.
Can my dental veneers be whitened?
Porcelain veneers are designed to be stain resistant and don’t respond well to whitening treatment. Therefore, we advise patients to have their teeth whitened before undergoing their veneers treatment.
Complement your smile with effective non-surgical rejuvenation treatments like dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle treatments
What is non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment?
Facial rejuvenation involves one or more non-surgical techniques designed to target various factors that influence a person’s appearance. The process typically involves the use of safe and proven cosmetic injectables like dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle toxins to iron out tell-tale lines and give the face a more youthful and fresher appearance.
Why would a dentist carry out facial rejuvenation?
Modern dentistry is more than just teeth. Nowadays most dentists take a holistic approach to oral care and that involves looking at the bigger picture. So in addition to teeth and gums, our highly skilled team also focuses cosmetically on the part that frames a smile – the face. We’re also very adept at administering gentle injections and understand how to create perfect facial symmetry.
How long does non-surgical facial rejuvenation last?
Non-surgical rejuvenation is not a permanent fix so patients will need to repeat treatments as and when they see fit. Typically, treatment lasts anywhere between six months and several years but this does depend upon a patient’s lifestyle, environment and habits. E.g. smoking.
Do cosmetic injections hurt?
As dentists, we administer injections every single day and pride ourselves on our gentle technique. The needles used in the administration of dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections are incredibly fine and therefore patients shouldn’t feel much discomfort during the process. We also offer topical anaesthetics which numb the area if requested.
Today 25th April l had a routine dental appointment with Mrs Weiss at 11.20. The night before my upper front tooth chipped and was very uncomfortable! Having looked at it Mrs Weiss booked a another appointment the same afternoon so she could repair it. Well l must say l feel like a NEW woman now after l looked in the mirror ! During the procedure which was so gentle and comfortable, the best l have ever had ! I should know l have been with York House Dental Surgery since the 1990’s. My tooth feels smooth and looks better than it has done for a long time. Thank You so much, one happy patient. I will come again!
