Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles

Millions of adults are unhappy, self-conscious and embarrassed by their smile and spend their lives covering their mouths when they talk or laugh, some avoid smiling altogether.

Some of these people may have considered having corrective teeth straightening procedures, but are concerned about metal braces, the length of time for them to be in place or the cost of treatment.

With modern dentistry offering a variety of solutions, one of the options available at Bath Spa Dentistry is the Six Month Smiles technique. This can reduce the completion time of orthodontic treatments from two years to as little as six months by treating your smile not your bite.

Is choosing private dentistry a lifestyle choice?

At Bath Spa Dentistry we offer Private Dentistry, and each and every patient is treated individually. For cosmetic treatments we provide a bespoke treatment plan which details full costs, timescales and information about what to expect of the treatment. We also spend a lot of time and effort making sure our surroundings are less like a dental surgery and more like a spa.

An interview with Dermot McNulty

How did you get into dentistry and implants?

I qualified at Birmingham University in 1982 and opened the Oral Health Centre in Bath in 1991, before opening Bath Spa Dentistry in 2002. I have been practising implant dentistry since 1987, when I also embarked on extensive post-graduate education in aesthetic and restorative dentistry, and learnt from some of the finest dental clinicians in the world. I completed the implant diploma at the Royal College of Surgeons in 2005 and have been involved in the delivery of that programme as a lecturer, examiner and cohort director since 2007.

Worried about visiting the dentist?

Imagine you are scared of going to the dentist. What would need to happen before you felt brave enough to pluck up the courage to actually step foot inside a dental practice?

If anyone has recently watched the BBC Television series ‘The Truth About Your Teeth’ you may be able to understand that some people are willing to experience pain, discomfort and difficulty eating, rather than going to visit their dentist.

Tell me about… mouth guards

Mouth guards – also known as sports guards or mouth protectors – are devices which fit over the teeth and gums, cushioning them from direct blows to the mouth and protecting them from damage.
