New Year’s Resolution – Improve Your Oral Health

Your dental health is an important part of your overall health, and the New Year is a great time to create resolutions for improving your health. Many people have dental health resolutions that range from improving their toothbrushing habits, finally getting their teeth straightened or improving their smile. Some of your New Years resolutions could include:

Improving Toothbrushing and Flossing Habits

Daily toothbrushing and flossing is a sure and simple way to improve your oral health. For successful bacterial plaque removal, it is important to brush at least twice a day using an appropriately sized, soft-bristle, manual or electric toothbrush and fluoridated toothpaste. It is also important to floss at least once per day to remove bacterial plaque and food that has accumulated throughout the day. Your toothbrush should be replaced every 3 to 4 months, as well as after you have a cold or flu or if the bristles are frayed. Daily toothbrushing and flossing help to prevent gingivitis (gum disease), tooth decay and halitosis (bad breath).

Healthier Food and Drink Choices

An important part of achieving your dental health resolutions is making healthier food and drink choices, especially for snacks. Frequent consumption of food and beverages containing carbohydrates and acids contributes to tooth decay, so it is important to brush after snacking. Chewing gum after a meal will also help to neutralise acid which has been created during mealtimes.

Improving Your Smile

At Pearl Dental we offer several treatments that can help to improve your smile:

Teeth Whitening
Recently tooth whitening has become extremely popular in Ireland, with people wishing to whiten their teeth after years of staining from food and drinks, smoking or general deterioration in colour. Our most popular treatment by far is the home whitening kit, that consists of custom made gum shields which are generally worn at night, in conjunction with a bleaching agent which gradually whitens the teeth over 2 weeks.

Teeth Straightening
Your New Year’s resolution may be to finally correct an underbite or overbite caused by an injury, thumb sucking, tooth crowding or crooked teeth. Correcting any of these problems with braces not only enhances the look of your smile but also, and most importantly, improves your oral health. At Pearl Dental we are experienced providers of the Fastbraces cosmetic braces system, and have consistently achieved fantastic results for our patients. Please review some of our successful cases in our Patient Gallery.

Restorative Dentistry
The New Year may be the right time to start or complete deferred restorative dental work, such as crowns, implants or fillings. Completing these types of procedures will help you to preserve the tooth structure and to maintain proper tooth alignment, which could ultimately improve your oral health.

Quit Smoking
Quitting cigarette smoking and smokeless tobacco use is important for improving your oral and overall health. There is no better time than the present to make a resolution to stop smoking. Consider free online tools, patches, progress-tracking apps or support from friends and family to assist you with tobacco cessation.

Make Routine Dental Visits
A resolution to make routine visits to Pearl Dental may help prevent oral disease or reveal an existing disease in its early stage. Our dentists recommend that dental visits should take place every 6 months to allow us to monitor the condition of your mouth and smile, and develop a custom treatment plan.

Lets talk about Veneers

What are Veneers?
Veneers are a thin piece of composite or dental porcelain that is used to cover the front surface of a tooth in order to improve its position, shape or colour. Much like false fingernails fit over nails, they are attached to your own teeth using a bonding material and generally last for several years.

Who are Veneers for?
We would recommend Veneers for patients who have small teeth resulting in spaces that may not be easily closed by orthodontics or where people have worn away the edges of their teeth. They are also effective in cases when patients suffer with crooked or badly stained teeth that cannot be corrected with other dental treatments.

What is involved in getting Veneers?
1. Getting a veneer generally takes two visits to our clinic
2. On the first visit the tooth is prepared to receive the veneer, and your dentist will take an impression of the tooth to ensure that the new veneer fits perfectly. A shade guide is used to make sure it matches the surrounding teeth and blends into your smile.
3. At your second visit the dentist will bond the veneer to your tooth using a special adhesive, much like super glue to make sure it stays in place.

Please see below one of our successful patient veneer cases. Please contact the clinic on 01 6790625 or if you would like to discuss veneers with one of our dentists.


Improve your smile with White Fillings


Most patients we see in Pearl Dental have fillings of one kind or another in their mouth, used to fill cavities caused by tooth decay. In most cases it tends to me amalgam which is a metal coloured filling material – a proven and time tested method to solve this problem.

Up until recently white fillings were considered less long lasting than silver fillings, and as a result most dentists used amalgam to fill holes in teeth. Due to the progress of modern dental materials, most of the fillings we now complete tend to be either composite or porcelain white materials, which can be blended to match the rest of your teeth.

In terms of cost for this service, due to the increasing popularity of white fillings the prices have come down significantly and white fillings are only marginally more expensive than amalgam. Similar to metal fillings the main factors determining price are the size of the cavity, the materials used and the length of time the treatment takes.

We would recommend considering white fillings when your existing ones need replacing. Talk to our dentists on your next visit about how you can improve your smile with white fillings.

As always if you would like to contact our dentist please ring the practice on 01 6790625 or email:

You want a fantastic smile, so what’s stopping you?

Having practiced as a dentist in Dublin 2 for several years now, we have seen numerous cases of people who could benefit from teeth straightening. In most cases people opt to get their teeth straightened for aesthetic reasons, but there are other solid benefits to getting cosmetic tooth alignment:

– Improved Dental Function

When we mention dental function we are talking about the act of chewing, talking and other everyday functions that the teeth perform

– Easy Maintenance of Teeth and Gums

Generally speaking your dentist or hygienist will find it easier to clean, treat and maintain aligned teeth, and you will find them simpler to brush and floss while at home.

– Aesthetic Benefit

It has been shown through numerous studies that there is an improved psychological benefit to having clean and straight teeth, giving people improved confidence in their everyday life and relationships.


Our Cosmetic Tooth Alignment system of choice is CFast. There are 3 main reasons we chose to work with this system:

Fast – You will have straight front teeth in about 6 months
Discreet – The wires and brackets are almost invisible
Affordable – The short treatment time dramatically cuts the cost

Why not contact us today to see if the CFast treatment is right for you on 01 6790625, and to avail of a free assessment in our city centre clinic.
