Childsmile is a programme set up by NHS Scotland for all children from baby through to early school years. The advantages of the programme have been proven to have reduced the amount of children within this age group having tooth decay. Advice and care such as tooth brushing, dietary information and free toothbrushes and toothpaste are given to each child at each visit from the age of 2 years old each child is eligible for fluoride varnish applications every 6 months until the age of 5 years.
How does ozone therapy work?
Ozone therapy works by sterilising an area of decay in a tooth. Ozone gas, which has high oxygen content, is initially applied to the affected tooth. This gas penetrates the tooth and eradicates the bacteria, neutralising harmful plaque acids that may otherwise lead to potential erosion and decay. Sealants can also be used to prevent decay in the future.
What are the advantages of ozone therapy?
Ozone therapy has many advantages:
- Painless procedure
- Beneficial for patients with a phobia of the dental drill
- Effective results: therapy prevents bacteria from becoming trapped within cavities or teeth that have been treated with crowns or fillings
- Long-term benefits
A crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. A crown is sometimes known as a ‘cap
Crowns are an ideal way to repair teeth that have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. A crown could be used for a number of other reasons, for example:
- You may have a discoloured filling and would like to improve the appearance of the tooth
- You may have had a root filling and need a crown to protect what is left of the tooth
- It may help to hold a bridge or denture firmly in place
Crowns can be made of a variety of different materials and new materials are continually being introduced. Some of the most popular options are listed below.
Porcelain bonded to precious metal: this is what most crowns are made from. A precious metal base is made and then porcelain is applied in layers over it.
Porcelain: these crowns are made entirely out of porcelain and are not as strong as bonded crowns. But they can look very natural and are most often used for front teeth.
All-ceramic: this modern technique offers a metal-free alternative, which can give the strength of a bonded crown and the appearance of a porcelain crown. Therefore it is suitable for use in all areas of the mouth.
How a crown is prepared? The dentist will prepare the tooth to the ideal shape for the crown. This will involve removing a layer of the outer surface, leaving a strong inner core. The amount of the tooth removed will be the same as the thickness of the crown.
Once the tooth is shaped, the dental team will take an impression (mould) of the prepared tooth, one of the opposite jaw and possibly another to show the way you bite together.
The impressions will then be given to a dental technician, along with information about the shade to use and any other information they need
A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain made to fit over the front surface of a tooth, like a false fingernail fits over a nail. Veneers can improve the colour, shape and position of your teeth. A precise shade of porcelain can be chosen to give the right colour to improve a single discoloured tooth or to lighten your front teeth. A veneer can make a chipped tooth look whole again. The porcelain covers the whole of the front of the tooth, with a thicker section replacing the broken part. Veneers can also be used to close small gaps, when orthodontics (braces) are not suitable. If one tooth is slightly out of position, a veneer can sometimes be fitted to bring it into line with the others.
Preparation Process: Some of the shiny, outer enamel surface of the tooth may be removed. The amount of enamel removed is tiny and will be the same as the thickness of the veneer to be fitted, so that the tooth stays the same size. A local anaesthetic (injection) may be used to make sure that there is no discomfort, but often this is not needed. Once the tooth has been prepared, the dental team will take an ‘impression’ (mould). This will be given to the dental technician, along with any other information needed to make the veneer. The colour of the surrounding teeth is matched on a shade guide to make sure that the veneer will look entirely natural. Our emax veneer tends to be a non preparation process and the ultra thin opaque veneer is placed directly onto natural multiple teeth this technique is a simple way of achieving the Hollywood dream smile without drilling your natural tooth at all.
Our smile clinic has become a very popular clinic offering patients consultations and 5 star smile makeover treatments such as non prep Emax veneers, Emax crowns and zirconia crowns and bridges.
Consultations are free and non obligation. There is a £20 fee to secure an appointment however this is refunded after consultation appointment or credited onto your treatment should you wish to proceed with your desired smile makeover.
Many people have crowded or crooked teeth. Orthodontic treatment will straighten the teeth or move them into a better position. This can improve their appearance and the way the teeth bite together, while also making them easier to clean.
Some people have upper front teeth that stick out and look unsightly. These ‘prominent’ teeth are more likely to be damaged, but orthodontic treatment can move them back into line. Or the way the upper and lower jaws meet can cause teeth to look unsightly and lead to an incorrect bite. Orthodontic treatment may be able to correct both of these problems.
When the teeth don’t meet correctly, this can put strain on the muscles of the jaw, causing jaw and joint problems and sometimes headaches. Orthodontic treatment can help you to bite more evenly and reduce the strain.
What is a fixed brace?
Often, teeth need to be guided more accurately than they can be using a removable brace. So a fixed brace is used. This has brackets and bands which are temporarily stuck to the teeth. A flexible wire joins all the brackets and allows the teeth to be moved. You can’t take the appliance out yourself, so it is called a fixed appliance
What are ‘invisible braces’?
They are tough, clear plastic ‘aligners’ (moulds) that are used to straighten teeth. Several sets of specially moulded, slightly different aligners are made for each patient. Each set is worn for two weeks before being replaced with the next one. They are made from clear plastic, so they are nearly invisible. This means that no one need know you are straightening your teeth.
The aligners should be worn for 22 to 23 hours a day for the best results. They can be easily removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and for cleaning in between your teeth. You need to have all your adult teeth before you can have this treatment.
A dental implant is used to support one or more false teeth. It is a titanium screw that can replace the root of a tooth when it fails. Just like a tooth root, it is placed into the jawbone.
We are in shared care partnership with the award winning “The Scottish Centre for Excellence” clinic. We refer our patients outwith to have the placement of the implant then afterwards patients return to our clinic for the restoration procedure.
How are missing teeth replaced? This depends on the number of teeth missing and on where they are in your mouth. The condition of the teeth you still have also affects the decision.
There are three main ways to replace missing teeth. The first is with a removable false tooth (or teeth) – called a partial denture. The second is with a fixed bridge.
A bridge is usually used when there are fewer teeth to replace, or when the missing teeth are only on one side of the mouth. The third way is by the use of dental ‘implants’. This is where an artificial root is placed into the bone of the jaw and a crown or bridge placed on top of this.

8 Point Lift Non-Surgical Facelift with Dermal Fillers
The 8 Point Lift is a specialised volumising and lifting facial treatment, also referred to as a non-surgical facelift or liquid facelift. The treatment uses dermal fillers to enhance and discreetly lift the face for a total rejuvenating effect. It is also known as the Fluid Facelift and the Liquid Lift. The 8 Point Lift targets key areas of the mid-face to lift, contour and revitalise the whole mid-face
and lower face.
The treatment is available within our clinic and Is carried out by Dr Frederico Do Rego.
At the clinic, we only use the highest quality of dermal filler brands – in this case made by Allergan.
As we age we lose elasticity in our skin and gravity takes its toll on the face, drawing the skin downwards and ageing us considerably. Skin sags and thins as we get older, affecting us all in different ways and typically more so for women, whose skin is naturally thinner.
Many patients come to The Clinique Celeste Clinic to hold back the excesses of ageing and to restore lost volume. More and more women and men are looking to dermal fillers and dermal filler treatments like the 8 Point Lift to look after their skin and help them look and feel good.
The 8 Point Lift uses high quality dermal fillers to restore volume to the mid face using an advanced and precise technique for total rejuvenation. It combats the soft tissue loss associated with the ageing process and offers a more complete solution compared to individual dermal filler treatments.
The results last for up to 18 months and there is no downtime associated with the procedure – making it a very popular treatment.
Dr Do Rego offers the 8 Point Lift after completing extensive training with dermal fillers. He is able to assess the face in its entirety to deliver assured results that match your face. Dr Do Rego has helped many patients achieve long-lasting natural-looking results, confidently and safely.
How dermal fillers Augments Sunken Cheeks
As with Facial rejuvenation, there is both an art and a science to dermal fillers. Liquid lifts for cheek augmentation depend on the skill of the injector. Fortunately for our patients, Dr Do Rego at Clinique Celeste understands how to achieve natural looking and beautifully balanced results. He factors in skin types, skeletal types, and patients goals in order to achieve the best possible outcome.
There are two ways that dermal fillers are useful for improving the look of cheeks that have begun looking old.
UPPER CHEEK CONTOURING
The malar area of the cheek refers to the area of the high cheekbone that starts at the rim of the eye and extends to the side of the face. With age, this area becomes susceptible to
- Bone shrinkage and reabsorption
- Fat Loss
- Depleted Collagen
CHEEK HOLLOW CONTOURING
The sub-malar region of the cheek is the area that goes from below your cheekbone and ends just above the jaw. Carefully placed injections of dermal fillers can plump out hollows that have developed to age or illness.
