SERVICES

You can call us and explain what your dental concern is; for instance if you are currently experiencing pain or you are looking for a cosmetic enhancement. During the phone conversation, your treatment coordinator will advise you whether you should have a routine of a full assessment consultation.

From the first appointment it takes approx. 2-3 weeks for the veneers to be hand-made in California and delivered to us. Your veneers will be fitted in 1 day only. Please see our Porcelain veneers page for more information.

In most cases Porcelain veneers is the best long-term solution, yet you should come and see our Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Aleem who will advise you on the best treatment plan for you.

Please, don’t worry, we have top orthodontic options in-house and upon a thorough examination your dentist will advise if Invisalign or another brace system we offer might be more suitable to your case and to meet your expectations.

In order for us to help you, we invite you to visit us as soon as you can. You dentist will closely assess your teeth and take x-rays to see the status of your roots and strength. Although case dependent you may need to continue with an orthodontic treatment or if your case is not too advanced.

Yes, of course. We have seen many patients with composite and even porcelain veneers that were not done properly or simply wearing out, thus causing aesthetic concerns. Our cosmetic dentist Dr Aleem will perform full examination and advise on steps forward. We use state of the art Waterlase laser technology that will quickly remove composite/old veneers and improve your gum line(if necessary) without any pain and any damage to your teeth enamel.

Please, immediately call us to book an appointment with a specialist. Gum disease is not to be neglected and should be tackled on time. We have seen many patients that have had severe gum disease and could not find anyone who can help them out. TKC is one of the practices that provides this specialist service. The aim is to tackle the gum disease and then if necessary give you a complete smile make-over via implants and/or veneers. In some severe cases, we will need to take all rotten teeth out and place implants, where the best options are: All-on-4 and all-on-6 dental implants. Please, find out more here.

Good news, the procedure is not painful. One of the most innovative procedures we do is gum contouring. Many patients have beautiful teeth hidden under a gum line that is overly exposed. We use state-of-the-art Waterlase laser to laser back your gums and bone if needed which will allow your teeth to be on show. The procedure duration is case dependant, please find out more here. You can also see some of our many superb before and after cases here.

You have a variety of options available depending on your case. You can have multiple individual implants placed, implant bridge or All-on-4 and All-on-6 implant solutions. Please, call our treatments coordinators who will book you in for a consultation with our highly renowned cosmetic dentist.

Yes, in many ways it is. The main reason is that it is more stable as two extra implants are added to support your teeth and bone. Besides, it is also more cost effective that All-on-4. Find more info here.

Yes, due to the direct access, you can go and see the hygienist without a check-up. Please, note your hygiene treatments should be paid upfront.

NERVOUS PATIENTS

We completely understand how much anxiety can deprive patients from improving their smile. We don’t take anxiety lightly and we have had a long experience with different levels of worry, stress and anxiety that some patients had experienced before coming to us. We are here to help you relax and improve your smile. Our qualified coordinators and dentists will ensure you feel as comfortable as possible during your treatment. If you experience any form of anxiety, please make sure you share that with us upon your first consultation. We can then discuss tailored to you options and methods that calm you down. We always inform our patients for each step we are to undertake before and during their treatment. We use sedation if necessary. Our interiors are purposely designed to feel relaxing and welcoming, unlike a common dental office. A prime reason that elevates the stress in anxious patients is the reminder of common dental office whether via smells or surroundings. Besides as a bespoke clinic, each patient gets utmost care and service during and post treatment. That level of care puts patients at an ease and often instead of anxiety, our patients enjoy the whole process. We also use relaxing scents, hot towels and music.

Should you feel more comfortable under sedation, please speak to us to find out more details. We provide oral and intravenous sedation which will put you at relaxing state during your treatment.
