In some circumstances photos of your teeth may be taken in order to keep a record of wear and tear, cracks or discolouration over time
Typically a scale and clean procedure involves:
Removes the calculus/tartar deposits, biofilm, and plaque from above and below the gum line
A tooth polishing process to remove any residual plaque and coffee or cigarette stains from your teeth
Professional fluoride application:
Sometimes a fluoride treatment is suggested in order to help re-harden the teeth and reduce the likelihood of further decay or damage to your teeth.
You’ve had your teeth cleaned and now we want to keep them that way. We provide instruction and professional advice about what you can do to maintain your fresh smile.
