We thought it may be useful to describe the difference between private dental treatment and NHS treatment so that you are armed with all the information you need to make your mind up about what treatment is right for you.

Private Dental Treatment

  • You are able to have private appointments anytime our practice is open.
  • Private treatment gives us complete freedom to provide the very highest standard of treatment.
  • Appointments are longer to allow plenty of time to complete your treatment at a more relaxed pace.
  • Cosmetic treatment is not available on the NHS, neither is certain treatments such as dental implants or tooth whitening.
  • Orthodontic treatment for patients over the age of 18 is usually not available on the NHS and Invisalign is usually not offered on the NHS

With any private dental treatment at Avondale Dental Practice, your dentist will discuss your treatment options and costs and give you a written estimate before you commit to any treatment.

NHS Dental Treatment

  • NHS patients are treated with the same care as our private patients.
  • Treatment needs to be functional on the NHS and not for cosmetic reasons
  • We must follow government guidelines for recalling patients which may mean you may not be entitled to a check up or clean as often as you want.
  • NHS cleaning is designed to ensure gum health and treat what is clinically necessary eg gum disease
  • Appointment availability may be limited. You may not be able to get appointments outside school or work hours.

Cosmetic Dentist in East Kilbride

Are you self-conscious about your smile? Maybe your teeth are slightly crooked, or they’ve become stained and dull looking over time?

We can help!

Avondale is your friendly, local dentist practice in East Kilbride, specialising in cosmetic dentistry.

Cosmetic dentistry is usually referred to as dental work that improves the appearance of teeth, gums and/bite. It focusses primarily on improving the look of your teeth and in turn, your smile.

There are a number of dental treatments that Avondale Dental Practice offer that would fall under the ‘cosmetic dentistry’ category, these include; teeth whitening, adult braces, Invisalign, porcelain crowns and porcelain veneers.

Below we have explained some of the treatments a cosmetic dentist may do:

  • Teeth whitening
    • Over time, teeth can become stained from food, drinks & lifestyle choices. Our professional teeth whitening uses a bleaching process to safely remove stains and can improve the whiteness of your teeth by 5-8 times!
  • Porcelain crowns
    • Porcelain crowns are usually fitted over a decayed or damaged tooth to cover it up and appear more natural.
  • Porcelain veneers
    • Dental veneers are thin, white shells that are bonded to your existing teeth. They are used to fix a number of cosmetic issues, such as crooked teeth, damaged enamel and gaps between teeth.
  • Adult braces
    • There are a number of different ways in which we can straighten teeth so we recommend that you come in for a consultation with one of our dentists so that we can talk you through the different options and agree on one that is best for you.
    • Treatments include Six Month Smiles, Quick Straight Teeth and Invisalign.
