Smiles from Craigentinny

At Craigentinny Dental Care for the past 25 years we have devoted ourselves to providing the residents of Edinburgh with a bespoke, tailored dental experience like no other. It is our goal to provide the Edinburgh community with a dental service that caters to the specific needs and requirements of each individual patient, rather than adopting the one-size-fits-all approach that has become common practice in numerous dental surgeries across the country. As can be seen from our many testimonials, we feel we have achieved exactly that, and are committed to continuing to do so for many years to come. Treatment here at Craigentinny Dental Care is only carried out after lengthy, friendly, informal consultations between patient and practitioner – during which time a relationship based on trust and understanding is formed, and the details of any process the patient may undertake are explained.

Dental Hygienist in Edinburgh

Good as new

A particularly popular treatment here at Craigentinny Dental Care is the treatment we provide from our dental hygienists in Edinburgh.Treatments of this nature are a cosmetic response to visible, superficial signs of deterioration on a patient’s teeth that have come about from smoking, drinking coffee, tea or red wine, or any other signs of neglect. At Craigentinny, we understand that a clean and healthy smile is imperative to a clean and happy lifestyle. By undertaking our power-cleaning scale and polish service, patients can walk away with a fresh, clean feeling mouth instantly. This helps to restore smiles and self-confidence as well as halting any risk of further detrimental damage to the patient’s teeth, gums or surrounding area coming about through neglect. We currently have three highly skilled and fully qualified dental hygienists in Edinburgh working in-house, each selected for their unique set of skills and expertise, who are happy to consult with patients on basic home remedies and tips on how to maintain a healthy mouth.

Hidden orthodontics

We also offer a range of cosmetic dental alignment procedures, such as our ‘Six Month Smiles’ programme. Unlike conventional orthodontics, which are typically metal, clearly visible and are worn for over a year – our ‘Six Month Smiles’ procedure utilises discreet orthodontic methods and clear plastic aligners, and are only worn for up to six months. Treatment of this description is generally favoured by teenagers and young adults as the brackets of the braces are colour matched to the patient’s surrounding teeth and as such when worn they are almost invisible. 

Combating dental anxiety

At Craigentinny Dental Care, we understand that visiting the dentist can be a stressful time for some people, and for those of you who suffer varying degrees of anxiety, we offer a course of sedation dentistry whereby a mild sedative is administered intravenously which calms the patient down and allows for dental work to be carried out smoothly. Before undertaking sedation dentistry, the patient and a practitioner of their choosing would first discuss the details of the process, and provide them with short medical history form to prevent any complications from arising.
