Dental Hygienist Services at Pearl Dental Practice and Beauty Salon, Dublin 2

A Dental Hygienist visit keeps teeth in tip-top shape

Probably the most undervalued and abused member of the dental team, both by dentists and patients, Dental Hygienists have a hard life, as many dentists use them as a depository for all the patients and work they don’t want themselves, and many patients don’t quite understand their role when they’re sent to see them.

In our world here at Pearl Dental, Dublin 2, our hygienist, Joann, is considered a vital part of our dental team, and helps maintain optimum oral health for our patients, as well as ensuring that complex restorations are cleaned and maintained as they should be, for maximum lifespan. One of the most important tasks that a dental hygienist undertakes is the treatment of gum disease and the maintenance of the gum health thereafter. If you have bleeding gums, or find that your dentist spends only a couple of minutes cleaning your teeth at your check-up visit, it’s probably time to see the hygienist to find out what a properly clean mouth feeels like.

That smile needs care. Your hygienist is the ideal person to provide it.

If you want a clean, healthy mouth, perfect oral hygiene, and immaculately kissable breath, a hygienist should become one of your best friends, as she will be able to advise you on the most appropriate oral hygiene techniques for your mouth, will clean your teeth more diligently, and more thoroughly than the majority of dentists, and should take a personal interest in you becoming a paragon of oral health. She is generally able to treat the majority of cases of gum disease, and you can see her as often as you wish to maintain that perfect smile, without having to see the dentist every time.

Also, check this post for more information on gum disease:

If you get into knots with floss, drink mouthwash as an aperitif, and use interdental brushes to clean your ears, you need a visit to the hygienist ASAP!

Visit the hygienist to learn the best hygiene techniques for your mouth

Our hygienist, Joann, is available Wednesdays and Fridays in our studio on Nassau Street, and will gently, but thoroughly, clean and polish your mouth, and coax you into better oral hygiene habits. She is also appreciated by us dentists too, as she can clean a mouth better than any of us are able!

Check this before you start teeth whitening/ bleaching

Here at Pearl Dental Practice and Beauty Salon we obviously offer tooth bleaching/ whitening as one of our services, and offer different methods of tooth whitening as appropriate for each case.

‘Laser’, Zoom or Britesmile bleaching

Are the dominant buzzwords in the public domain at present, and offer tooth whitening in around 60- 90 minutes.

Tray bleaching

Involves the use of custom fitted trays to apply the bleach to the teeth, with these being worn on a nightly basis for around 2-3 weeks.

Deep bleaching

Is a more complex bleaching system, but is very effective if undertaken correctly, and offers outstanding results. This technique is considerably more expensive than the standard bleaching systems. 

To ensure that your tooth whitening experience is comfortable, effective, and safe:

  • Never allow a non-dental professional to bleach your teeth. This has been researched by the EU, and the most recent directive advised that tooth bleaching/ whitening should ONLY be undertaken by dental professionals to ensure the safety of the procedure. TOOTH BLEACHING CAN BE DANGEROUS IF NOT CARRIED OUT CORRECTLY, AND WITH APPROVED AND RESEARCHED PRODUCTS.
  • Ensure that your dental check-up is up to date, and that your dentist has checked the condition of your gums.
  • Check the teeth in your smile line for old fillings, veneers, crowns and bridges, as these will not change colour with tooth whitening/ bleaching, and the cost to replace these can be far more than the bleaching itself. Consider a full smile design consult if you have several teeth that will require work after whitening, and this will ensure that you are fully aware of ALL the costs before you begin.
  • If you’re planning to go for one of the 1 hour bleaching systems, ensure that CUSTOM MADE TRAYS are included in the cost, as the colour of the teeth after this type of bleaching is NOT stable, and WILL fade back to some degree. The trays allow for ‘topping-up’ of the bleaching process at home which helps stabilise the colour.
  • NEVER try bleaching kits purchased online for ridiculously cheap prices. Some of these have been shown to be acidic formulations, which is bad, bad news for teeth. Only ever use approved bleaching systems.
  • Don’t be fooled by the advertising. ‘Laser’ bleaching works, but it does not give a brighter colour than home tray bleaching; it can be very sensitive (in our experience, and that of many of my colleagues, approximately 75% of you will experience some pain with ‘Laser’ bleaching, with this being temporary, but potentially quite uncomfortable- see quote at end of this post), you need trays afterwards if you want the best colour, and it takes at least 90 minutes to do it properly. Any dentist or clinic telling you differently should be avoided. Deep bleaching is the only technique that may enhance the colour beyond that of standard tray bleaching.
  • Enjoy your new smile! Follow the guidelines above, and tooth bleaching is one of the safest and most effective ways of improving your smile, so there is now no excuse for less than ideal Pearlys!

And to finish, here is a quote from one of the online forums regarding bleaching. Make sure that the dentist you see for your bleaching knows what he/ she is doing, and how to deal with pain if it arises.

Hi..my son had the laser teeth whitening treatment in Dublin city 3 weeks ago and had such a bad reaction (he thought he was going to pass out with the pain) he was sent home in a taxi having had painkillers administered. Be careful..it is obviously not for everyone. He had had a prior consultation and was told he was the perfect candidate i.e.no receeding gums and aged only 22.Apparently his reaction was “one in a million”.

Exclusive standard veneers at Pearl Dental Practice and Beauty Salon, Dublin 2

Here at Pearl Dental Practice and Beauty Salon, we pride ourselves on the standard of our work, and back this up with a 5 year full coverage warranty on all our crowns, veneers, implants, and bridges. However, in some cases, the client is more demanding in terms of the final finish for their smile, and it is for cases such as these that we recommend our exclusive standard laboratory work. The procedure in the surgery is unchanged, as we always work to the highest standards, but the laboratory process, which involves the fabrication of the veneers, crowns etc, can be customised to achieve maximum aesthetics. The work will not last longer, or fit better, as we always aim for the ideal in these respects, but the time spent by the laboratory technician will be considerably longer, and the attention to minor details more intense.

For most people, such minor details are not noticeable, but for some, they are what create the perfect smile, and are therefore worth every cent of the additional cost involved.

Examples of some of our standard veneer cases can be found under the post before-and-after-2-veneers

An example of an exclusive case is shown below, with the first image of the old veneers after the teeth were whitened, and the second image is of the 6 new veneers after fitting. Note the extraordinarily natural appearance of the veneers, which are all but impossible to distinguish from the natural teeth.

Veneers at Pearl Dental Practice and Beauty Salon, Dublin 2

Veneers are the buzz-word of the dental world for the last few years, along with dental implants and tooth whitening. Veneers are likened to false fingernails, in that they are glued onto the front of your teeth to change their shape and/or colour, and can achieve dramatic transformations of smiles.

Here at Pearl dental practice and beauty salon, we have considerable experience in the planning and provision of veneers, often in conjunction with tooth whitening, and have developed a very close relationship with our selected dental laboratories in order that our results look like your teeth, just better!

We have 2 options in terms of the cosmetic demands for veneers, with costs increasing as aesthetic demands become more particular. Our standard veneers are of an exceptional standard in terms of their fit and finish, and the difference between these and our more exclusive range of veneers is the amount of shade variation and surface characterisation that is incorporated into the veneers by the laboratory. If you look closely at your teeth in a mirror, you will notice that they vary in clour, and that the surface texture is not perfectly flat. Using digital photos of your teeth and smile, our specialist laboratory can create astonishingly lifelike veneers that cannot be distinguished from the surrounding teeth, but this degree of detail incurs increased laboratory costs, and hence makes the veneer more expensive.

Fees for veneers are tax deductable at your marginal rate.

All of our veneers are subject to our comprehensive 5 year warranty covering all costs should failure occur. If you are considering veneers, a comprehensive examination and treatment plan must be undertaken first, sometimes incorporated with our smile design service (http://pearltreatment.wordpress.com/2008/09/11/smile-design-a…salon-dublin-2), and you will be made fully aware of all costs before treatment begins. If you’re checking out other veneer providers, ensure that you ask about their warranty on their work, and also that they allow the option of returning the veneers for shade changing if they are not right first time. Don’t accept anything less as the veneers will define your smile for the next 15-20 years, and must be of an acceptable standard to justify the cost.

For most people our standard veneer is more than sufficient to meet their requirements, and the longevity of both standard and exclusive veneers is identical.

Images of some of our standard veneers can be seen in our ‘before and after’ category at http://pearltreatment.wordpress.com/2008/08/21/before-and-after-2-veneers, and images of an exclusive veneer case can be found in the post: http://pearltreatment.wordpress.com/2008/09/24/exclusive-stan…salon-dublin-2.

Smile Design at Pearl Dental Practice and Beauty Salon, Dublin 2.

Here at Pearl Dental Practice and Beauty Salon, we are in the process of bringing smile design to a new level, whereby we look at more than just teeth, and assess the face that frames them. With the expertise of our co-located beautician, we can arrange joint consultations that assess the smile, your skin condition, your daily skin care regime, and even your make-up!

With our competitive fees, such as veneers from €400 per tooth (for 6 teeth or more), tooth whitening from €250, implants from €2000 per tooth (for 3 or more), and crowns from €500 (for 4 teeth or more), we can provide a complete smile transformation at a fee that doesn’t involve remortgaging the house!

Using a combination of dental procedures, Dermalogica based skin analysis and treatments, Jane Iredale professional make-up, and if necessary, injectable line and wrinkle treatments such as Restylane Collagen Fillers, and anti-wrinkle injections, we can ensure that we maximise every facet of your smile to leave you glowing with youthful vitality!

Dental procedures can include tooth whitening/ bleaching, veneers, white fillings, crowns and more, and a full mock-up of the smile can be created before any treatment begins, allowing a very accurate assessment of expected outcomes.

If your smile is lacking the ‘WOW’ factor that you crave, call us on 01 679 0625 to arrange an appointment with either the beauty salon, the dental practice, or both, located here in Dublin 2, and we will talk you through your smile design options!
