Enjoy The Benefits Of A Beautiful Smile And Teeth That Last You A Lifetime

Examination

A dental examination once every 6 months to 1 year can actually save you money. A comprehensive examination and appropriate X-rays combined with a cleaning will prevent irreversible damage to your teeth and gums.

A regular examination is the first step to keep your dental care on track.

Our examination consists of:

  • A mouth cancer screening
  • A gum health check
  • A check for tooth decay
  • And a check on wear and tear and tooth position

When was the last time you had a proper dental examination? If you answered over 1 year then I’d highly recommend you call our office right now on 01-6761464 and schedule an appointment.

Smile Enhancement

A beautiful smile can literally change your personal and professional life and we have done this for hundreds of people who wanted to correct problems they had since childhood like discoloured, crooked or irregular teeth. Others want to correct things like cracked and worn down teeth.

There are a large variety of things which can be done to significantly improve our smiles. Ranging from simple whitening and cosmetic bonding to beautiful ceramic Empress Veneers.

Every case is unique and different our first concern is to tailor treatment to your needs and wishes. You can give us a call on 01-6761464 to personally discuss a tailor made treatment just for you.

Crowns

A crown is a big repair for a badly damaged tooth. It usually looks like a hollow tooth which fits over a very careful preparation of whatever remains. Very much like a top hat fitting over a smaller top hat.

Crowns can be made from a variety of different materials depending on your requirements and often look exactly like perfect natural teeth.

Fillings

A filling is essentially a small or medium repair for a broken or decayed tooth.
We prefer to use the more modern white composite filling materials which do NOT contain the toxic element Mercury.

Alternatively we can prepare very precise small blocks of pure ceramic which  are then bonded into place.

Maintenance bonding

These are essentially small fillings, often without any drilling or injections needed to combat wear and tear.

After all we are going to have our teeth for many years so there is no point in letting them wear down.

Wisdom Teeth

Most lower wisdom teeth are better off extracted by a specialist. They are usually close to the important nerve bundle which runs through the lower jaw.

Routine extractions

It is always better to preserve a tooth even for a few years.  Think of your mouth like a game of Jenga. The more blocks that are pulled out the more likely the whole tower will fall over.

Similarly with your mouth, the more back teeth which are removed the less likely the front teeth will last properly. Only when essential will we advise removing a tooth.

Implants

Implants are a two stage procedure.

A good way to think about an implant is as a small titanium screw which is placed by a specialist surgeon.

This is left to heal and to integrate with the surrounding jaw.

Two or three months later we build the tooth or denture  on top of this titanium bolt.

Properly planned and in a healthy mouth implants are generally hugely successful. Honestly, it is fantastic that implants exist.

They are a wonderful get out of jail card, and ideally would never be needed because we look after our existing teeth.

Orthodontics

No two set of teeth are the same, and each grows in its own unique way. In cases where there are structural issues affecting your bite and your smile’s aesthetic, orthodontic treatment can be highly beneficial, and even life-changing.

Everyone deserves to have a great set of teeth and a smile they feel proud of. Here at McEvoy Dental, we offer a variety of orthodontic treatments, including traditional fixed braces, Invisalign and Six Month Smiles.

Contrary to common belief, orthodontic treatment isn’t just for children. Whilst it’s true that orthodontic concerns are generally best treated early, treatment can be of great benefit to adult patients, who have more options than ever in the past. Thanks to the development of brace designs over the past few decades, orthodontic treatment is no longer invasive and uncomfortable. Fit your treatment around your day-to-day life and have a beautiful-looking smile throughout the brace-wearing period, thanks to the discreet brace designs of today.

We will carry out a detailed analysis of your mouth and examine your bite and tooth structure, to formulate a plan that addresses your specific concerns.

Dental Implants

Dental Implants are titanium fixtures, placed into the jaw, that permanently replace one or more missing teeth, or act as an anchor for crowns, bridges or dentures.

As a result, Dental Implants fuse to your jawbone and therefore they provide a stable support for an artificial tooth, unlike with dentures. Furthermore, implants mimic the way that your natural tooth roots secure your teeth to your gumline and the crown which is placed on top is designed to look like your other teeth. Therefore, nobody will know that you have implants, they will look totally natural and will make you smile with confidence!

In short, the success rate for Dental Implant therapy is up to 98% with age, length of implant, diameter of implant, bone quality and region of the implant being the factors which determine this rate.

Migraines

Botox® (onabotulinum toxin A), was licensed specifically in Ireland for the treatment of chronic migraine in July 2010 by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). Clinical trials leading to the approval of Onabotulinum toxin A were called PHASE III Research Evaluating Migraine Prophylaxis Therapy (PREEMPT) protocol. Botox injections have been shown to be effective in preventing the headaches, nausea and dizziness associated with chronic migraines.

Chronic migraine is defined as headaches occurring on 15 or more days each month.
Botox can help to prevent severe headaches by temporarily relaxing key muscles in the forehead and neck, blocking nervous transmission and therefore alleviating the pain and discomfort caused by migraines. In addition to its muscle relaxing properties, Botox may also be effective at blocking pain signalling to the brain, which could potentially help those experiencing different kinds of discomfort, such as muscular strains and neck problems.

Composite Bonding

Composite Bonding makes use of special composite material to smooth and patch over imperfections in your teeth such as: chips, gaps and rough edges. It can also benefit you by strengthening chipped and worn out teeth.

Benefits Include:

  1. Improve the appearance of your smile quickly
  2. Long lasting – a dental bond can last up to 10 years
  3. Retain the health and natural structure of your tooth
  4. Can usually be completed in just one appointment
  5. Predictable aesthetic and functional results
  6. No drilling of the tooth necessary and therefore no injection required.
  7. It’s pain free
  8. Future treatment options are wide and varied in most cases. Failure is rare and very easy to fix.
  9. Suitable for patients of all ages with good dental and gum health.
  10. Results in natural tooth colour
