Definitely a long time to have not seen a dental hygienist and WAY OVERDUE!
Harneek Sangha and I both joined CrownWood Dental and MediSpa at the same time, so I thought it would be a good reason to book an appointment to see her.
To be honest, I did feel really nervous, plus I knew that my teeth were highly sensitive. PAIN was at the forefront of my mind…..I just thought…. this is going to HURT!
Back in the 90’s was the last time that I saw a hygienist and all I remember was a lot of scrapping, plus a sense of feeling like my teeth were being pulled out! Not a nice experience in my recollection.
I explained my anxiety and sensitivity to Harneek, she was very understanding and asked if I would like to have some sedation or numbing gel. YES was my immediate answer. As I’m not overtly keen on needles, I decided to go for the latter option…the numbing gel.
The gel took a few minutes to take effect and then Harneek got to work.
I was suitably surprised at how easy the whole process was. Harneek talked me through each stage and what all the noise correlated to. This put me at ease and I subsequently began to relax.
After the cleaning finished, which took around 25 minutes, Harneek showed me the results in a mirror…..WOW, they looked amazing, so CLEAN and FRESH, just fantastic. I could actually feel each individual tooth with my tongue.
After the cleaning, Harneek then worked her magic with the Airflow stain remover. This didn’t take much time at all and the results were impressive, my teeth looked much whiter and actually sparkled!
Literally, there was nothing to worry about! Hygiene appointments have certainly moved on since the 90’s. The process was PAIN FREE. I would highly recommend going to see a hygienist, you will be super excited about the results.
Thank you Harneek.
If you would like to book an appointment with one of our three hygienists, Harneek, Aggie or Clare, please do call us on 01344 482 882 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For some visuals, I’ve attached a brochure about Airflow Stain removal which shows you the GREAT results that can be achieved, as well as Teeth whitening which we also offer here in the practice and home kits.
The FIRST HURDLE with my Invisalign treatment, was going on holiday with the trays.
Being on holiday, where you are constantly having nice food and drinks, made it very difficult with the trays – having to remove them so often.
Although I did indulge on holiday (as you should), but was very honest with Dr Wong about how long I was wearing my trays for. We decided that I should wear the same trays for an extra week.
If at any point you feel like you haven’t worn them as religiously as you were before, its best to be really honest with your dentist, as ill-fitting trays could delay your treatment by having to go back and rectify the movement.
As the months go by, there isn’t a lot of change in my daily routine, in regards to my Invisalign treatment. So, I have decided to write my blog every two months now, as I should have a little more to talk about.
I will be very honest and admit that I have started to slack with the amount of times I use the ‘chewies’ throughout the day and probably allow myself more tea and coffee in the mornings than I did when I first started the treatment.
This hasn’t affected my treatment, as the slip ups are only minor, but I have noticed that the trays will feel tighter for longer, in comparison to when I was being very good with my trays. As I noticed the trays felt tighter than before, this really spurred me on to be extremely thorough with them once again.
Teeth whitening should only be performed by a dentist or regulated dental professional, such as a dental hygienist or dental therapist, on the prescription of a dentist. At CrownWood Dental, all clinical options are explained to our patients before we start a teeth whitening treatment.
Home Teeth Whitening Kit
Over time, teeth become stained by food and drink. Smoking further stains teeth, resulting in the natural white shade becoming darkened.
Teeth whitening is a successful and simple method of lightening the colour of your teeth. A custom made mouth tray is created. A whitening gel is placed in the tray which is worn while you sleep, or for short periods during the day. Results are normally seen over a 2-week period.
Zoom chairside whitening whitens up to 6 shades in an hour.
The Philips Zoom Chairside procedure consists of 4 x 15 minutes with an added pH booster application that is applied to the teeth before the Philips Zoom whitening gel.
The chairside treatment is then used in conjunction with Zoom DayWhite or NiteWhite for patients to continue whitening at home.
For those who like the convenience of whitening while they sleep, there is NiteWhite; for patients who prefer a shorter wear-time we would recommend our DayWhite Take-Home treatment.

Combat the signs of aging with face fillers in Bracknell, Berkshire
We can use dermal fillers such as Restylane to help smooth lines around your mouth and restore pretty lips to their former glory. With this treatment you’ll look more youthful and fresh faced for around a year.
Youthful skin is rich in Hyaluronic Acid (HA): a natural substance found in the skin that binds water, hydrates the skin, and promotes that all-important softness and fullness. However, as we age, our HA gradually becomes less efficient which leads to the loss of natural elasticity and youthful volume.
At CrownWood MediSpa in Bracknell, we use a hand-picked selection of the very best dermal fillers to help smooth lines around your mouth and restore your lips to their former glory. With this treatment, you’ll look more youthful and feel fresh-faced for around a year.
Conditions treated with dermal fillers
Whilst many may think of dermal fillers as simply a solution to combat the signs of aging, there are actually a number of different aesthetic enhancements and alterations that can be made possibly using face fillers.
The dermal fillers available at our practice in Bracknell can be used to correct:
Bumps on the nose
Nose to mouth lines
Under eye lines/bags

Restylane is suitable for use on both men and women, and it also has full European approval (CE-Mark) for the last 10 years.
The striking results of this treatment generally last for around 12 to 14 months. Re-treatment is then required to keep your youthful look topped up.
Juvéderm dermal fillers
One of the most popular hyaluronic fillers on the market, Juvéderm is designed to add volume to specific areas of the face to lift up the cheeks, smooth out any lines and wrinkles, or plump up lips for a full and youthful appearance.
Juvéderm is renowned for its long-lasting results, with top-ups only required around every 18 months to keep your skin looking vibrant for longer.

Emervel is another of the top brands of dermal fillers on the market today. This formula helps to create instant, natural-looking results that revitalise your face; smoothing away lines and restoring volume in all the right places to combat the signs of aging and define your features.
These facial fillers are designed to provide visible results for around 6 to 9 months – with effects often lasting up to a year – before needing to top up.
Cost of dermal fillers at CrownWood Dental in Bracknell
At our Berkshire practice, all of our dermal fillers treatments are carried out by qualified physicians. The treatment involves the injection of the Restylane, Juvéderm or Emervel gel into the length of the area being treated.
