Could you benefit from cosmetic dentistry?

Most of us have a long list of desires when it comes to our body. We might want to lose some weight or have clearer skin, but one of the easiest ways to completely change our appearance is by improving our smile.

When your appearance matters, most people don’t just want an average smile. With cosmetic dentistry in West Malling, you can create your best possible smile. Our dental professionals at One Smile Oral Care can help you with a multitude of cosmetic procedures to transform your teeth, or they can simply enhance the smile you already have.

There are several services cosmetic dentistry in West Malling can provide for you, including teeth whitening, porcelain veneers and cosmetic re-contouring of your gums.

Cosmetic Dentistry in West MallingZoom teeth whitening

You can’t pick up a magazine today, or turn on the TV without noticing dazzling whitened smiles. Teeth whitening services are growing in popularity and are now one of the most requested services that we offer.

For some of our patients, the answer to their needs is Zoom one hour teeth whitening. This light-activated whitening system is the quickest method for tooth whitening today. It can make your teeth 6 to 10 shades lighter with little sensitivity.

Zoom teeth whitening is for One Smile Oral Care patients who want safe, effective and speedy whitening results. Custom trays are also included for periodic touch-ups, to make sure your smile stays as white as possible.

Good-looking gums

Not everyone shows their gums when they smile, but if they do then having an even gum line along the top of the teeth is an important feature for a natural, healthy looking smile. Gum contouring is a technique that reshapes your gum line so it better complements your teeth.

If you choose gum contouring, the results are usually permanent. In some cases, where a large amount of gum tissue is removed the healing process can take longer, as it may be necessary to trim bone on the front of the tooth root to help prevent re-growth of the gum tissue.

Wearing braces in West Malling for a beautiful, beaming smile

Like losing our baby teeth, wearing braces is a rite of passage for many children these days. The same is not always true for adults and you may have lived with crooked, crossing or uneven teeth for most of your adult life. Not only can unsightly teeth have a major effect on how you feel about yourself, your overall oral health may suffer too. Straight and well aligned teeth are more likely to remain healthy and be easier to care for.

Braces in West MallingProblems with a misaligned bite can lead to excessive wear and tear on certain teeth, as well as putting unnecessary strain on the joints of your jaw. Here at One Smile Oral Care in West Malling, braces are available for both children and adults. Adult braces are now becoming a very popular option and it is no longer necessary to put up with a less than perfect smile. Perhaps it’s now time for you to invest in a better smile; your future self will thank you.

Getting straight to the point

In the past braces were cumbersome and obtrusive, they were often referred to as train tracks. Thankfully, new technology, modern materials and improved techniques allow us to offer a range of practical and unobtrusive alternatives. At our practice in West Malling, braces really are for everyone. Invisible removable braces and tooth-coloured wires and brackets have proved to be a big step forward. Because they cannot be seen easily, most people will not even notice that you are wearing braces.

For children it is usually necessary to realign the teeth using fixed brackets and wires, although this is not always the case. In the past dentists often had to remove a number of  teeth to make enough room to straighten the rest. Using modern methods it is often possible to expand the jaw and palate to accommodate all of the adult teeth within the jaws.

For adults patients we offer the Invisalign system. This is a series of removable mouth guards. Invisalign braces can be used to address a wide range of orthodontic issues from minor straightening to major realignment. Because these braces are invisible they fit unobtrusively into your everyday life and no one else will need to know that you’re wearing braces in West Malling, unless you decide to tell them.

Finding a dentist in West Malling

It would be fair to say that although visiting the dentist is not high on most people’s list of favourite things, having good teeth and a beautiful healthy smile definitely is. A beautiful smile can make such a difference to how you feel about yourself and how you interact with others. This is why it is so important to find a dentist who can make every visit a positive experience.

If you are looking for a dentist in West Malling who believes that taking advantage of the most up-to-date dental technology, One Smile Oral Care might be just what you are looking for. Dr Ben Mortazavi has invested in the latest dental equipment, designed to ensure that you leave the practice smiling.

Dentist in West MallingA major advance in dental anaesthetics

Local anaesthetics are a necessary part of many dental treatments, such as fillings. Not only are injections uncomfortable, they often leave your face and lips feeling numb for some time after the treatment, and can cause you to dribble.  Unsurprisingly, many people who have a fear of needles often avoid going for treatments unless absolutely necessary.

The dental wand is an advanced solution to this problem: using a micro-processor to control the delivery of the anaesthetic, it is possible to numb a single tooth without affecting the surrounding areas of the mouth or face. Even the most nervous of patients are pleasantly surprised. The dental wand also delivers a small quantity of the anaesthetic to the injection site before the needle is placed, which means that the area is already numb and the injection is then painless.

Treat your teeth to the best technology

The dental wand is just one of the range of technologically advanced treatments available here in West Malling. Dentist Dr Ben Mortazavi and his team use lasers to treat a wide range of dental issues. Dental lasers can be used for drilling, tooth whitening and the treatment of periodontal and gum related issues. There are many benefits from using lasers; less noise and vibration make the treatment more comfortable. Lasers also do much less damage to the surrounding tissue and swelling and bleeding are minimised. Finding a dentist that makes each visit a positive experience will definitely give you something to smile about.

Keep your dental business your own with Invisalign

When people see you wearing braces, somehow they just seem to think they are an open invitation to ask personal questions about your teeth, questions you might not want to have to answer every time you meet someone new.

If you want straighter teeth, without having to go through the process needed to achieve them and advertising your efforts to all and sundry, then Invisalign nearly invisible aligners could be the solution for you.

invisalign-west-mallingIf you live or work in West Malling, Invisalign is available from One Smile Oral Care, conveniently placed in the high street and open every working day and Saturday mornings.

When you come to see us for Invisalign in West Malling, we can give you detailed information during your free initial consultation, but here is an overview to help you get the basics.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign clear aligners are different from the more well-known braces systems. They use transparent thermoplastic resin trays, rather like mouthguards, that slide snugly over the teeth. These trays are so thin that it is almost impossible to see them.

Your trays are made specifically for you, from impressions that we take here and then send off to the Invisalign laboratory in the United States. The lab also uses information sent by us to calculate the path the teeth need to travel along to reach their required alignment. The laboratory makes an aligner tray for each step. Each one is slightly differently from the previous one, marking another step along the journey your teeth will take. The pressure from each slight move forward in the tray design is what nudges the teeth along their path.

You need to wear each tray for about two weeks before moving on to the next one, and you will need somewhere between 12 and 48 trays, depending on your specific needs.

In West Malling, Invisalign has another great advantage in that the aligners are removable, so they are much easier to keep clean and so are your teeth. You can also leave them off entirely for a few hours if you have to attend an important social or professional event. The aligners should, however, be worn for at least 20 hours a day every day for the quickest results.

Make your smile beautiful as well as healthy

So many of us wish that our healthy teeth and gums were more beautiful to look at.

Even if all we have is one discoloured, crooked, chipped or worn tooth, and apart from that we are in excellent oral health, we can still find ourselves suppressing our smiles and laughter, in the hope that no one will notice our imperfection.

cosmetic-dentistry-west-mallingBut with cosmetic dentistry in West Malling, you can turn healthy teeth and gums into dazzling smiles.

At One Smile Oral Care, cosmetic dentistry in West Malling has various different techniques, some of which require only a single visit, to bring out the best in your smile.

In West Malling, cosmetic dentistry covers a wide range of treatments; from the latest in tooth whitening techniques to porcelain veneers, white fillings and dental implants to the most recent updates in traditional prosthetics such as dentures, bridges and crowns.


At One Smile Oral Care, we can cover chipped, broken and discoloured teeth, or even slightly misaligned teeth with porcelain veneers. Veneers are durable, very thin covers of porcelain that we fix over the front of your natural teeth. We remove a thin layer of enamel to create the rough surface required for the veneers to adhere to, and make sure they align with the rest of your teeth. Once the veneers are in place, they look and behave just like natural teeth. You can have as many fitted as necessary, even a whole mouthful.


For crowded, crooked or misaligned teeth, or an uneven bite, cosmetic dentistry in West Malling can move teeth into a better position using braces or invisible aligners. Aligners achieve the same results as bracket and wire braces, without being fixed to the teeth. These clear plastic trays fit so snugly over the teeth so that they are barely noticeable. Each tray is one in a succession that gently nudges the teeth into a straighter position in your mouth, over a matter of months. These trays are removable, making it easier to eat, brush, and even maintain discretion at important events.

In West Malling, cosmetic dentistry at One Smile Oral Care also offers dental implants to replace lost teeth, and professional tooth-whitening, which is the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment.

In West Malling, braces are still important for children

Braces are increasingly common among adults in the 21st century, with the advances in materials and techniques. But they are still just as important for children.

braces-in-west-mallingHere at One Smile Oral Care, we encourage parents to bring their children in for an orthodontic check-up, so that we can keep an eye on whether or not they are going to need braces. Dr Yasmin George takes a keen interest in making sure that children’s mouths and faces are developing properly. She monitors not only their teeth and gums, but also their jaws and bite. And Yasmin can tell from as young as the age of five whether your child is going to need some help to develop good straight teeth, properly sized jaws, a good profile and a broad, beautiful, beaming smile.

If not, do not worry, because here at One Smile in West Malling, braces come in different designs and materials, to fit your needs and that of your children. It is a good idea to bring your child in for an orthodontic check-up no later than seven-years-old, because there are some problems that can only be treated while the face is still growing.

Our braces in West Malling

We have several different designs of braces.Metal bracket and wire braces are much smaller these days and we find that, because they are robust, they can stand up to the extra wear and tear, bumps and bashes that go with being an active, healthy child. This is one reason why metal braces remain popular among children.

We also offer bracket and wire braces that have clear ceramic brackets and tooth-coloured wires. These small, discreet braces are the kind that many adults choose because people have to get up close to spot them. They are, however, more fragile than metal braces and may not be the right choice if you have a sporty child.

If your child’s teeth only need some minor readjustments, then they may be able to wear clear plastic aligners. These are not suitable for serious corrections, but work incredibly well on the front six teeth if they are only slightly wonky.

We offer a free initial consultation, so please take advantage of it to find out if your child may need help.


Braces are a vital dental device that are used for straightening and correcting misaligned teeth. One of the main disadvantages of conventional braces is that they are very apparent and can be seen easily. At One Smile Oral Care in West Malling, we find that many of our patients are conscious of these types of braces and therefore choose not to get the teeth straightening that they need.

Invisalign braces are a modern alternative to traditional metal braces that not only straighten your teeth but are also discreet. These clear braces are virtually invisible and can barely be seen, even at a very close distance.

invisalign-in-west-mallingThis means you can wear your Invisalign braces at home, at work, on social occasions, without anyone knowing and you will not have to hide your teeth while they are being straightening. Invisalign in West Malling could hold the key to get your teeth corrected while carrying on with your normal day-to-day life.

Why choose Invisalign in West Malling?

There are many advantages in choosing Invisalign clear braces instead of a more traditional metal brace. Since Invisalign clear braces are like a thin mouth guard, they can be removed when required, allowing you to eat anything. This also eliminates the need to clean the brace with long cleaning brushes, which can be very difficult.

If this is not carried out correctly, plaque can collect underneath, which can damage your teeth. This risk is removed with an Invisalign brace which has clear benefits. The fact that you can eat any food that you want also means that you have no restrictions when using the brace.

The Invisalign treatment is a very fast process in comparison to other orthodontic methods, taking on average six to twelve months. This means that not only are you not restricted to what you can do while using your Invisalign clear brace, you will also gain a wonderful smile in a very short time. As well as this the procedure itself, is near enough painless as the braces move the teeth with a very gentle force.

A healthy smile is the foundation of a beautiful smile

These days, when you visit the dentist, you can easily get carried away with ideas of perfectly aligned, flawlessly shaped white teeth created by cosmetic dentistry.

And, while, at One Smile Oral Care, your dentist in West Malling, we are very keen to offer everyone access to well-aligned, shapely, white teeth, we also believe that good oral health is the basis of every beautiful smile.

dentist-in-west-mallingThat is why when you come to us for your first appointment, we will be taking a detailed look at not just your teeth, but your entire oral area: your gums, jawbone, tongue and mouth. We will also be having a good chat with you about your dental past and your desired dental future.

And, if we find that you do need to have remedial treatments, maybe a filling or two, we have the latest and the best techniques and materials.


Your fillings no longer need to be made of mercury amalgam, and your West Malling dentist at One Smile can use the latest in composite materials instead. These match your tooth colour and stand up to the stresses and pressures created by biting and chewing. Also, with composite fillings, we do not have to remove so much of the tooth in order to give it something to bond to.

Root canal therapy

You may need root canal therapy, if bacteria have entered into the pulp of the tooth, either via a crack or decay. These bacteria produce acid, which can cause irritation and infection, and, as pressure increases inside the tooth, you will experience severe toothache. If this has happened, the dentist will clean out the canal, removing the pulp and fill the space before sealing it.

If you need to have teeth removed, your West Malling dentist can fill the gap left with a bridge. These are artificial teeth that are supported by the teeth next to them. Or you may opt for dental implants, which replace the root as well as the crown.

However, if you come to us twice a year for a check-up; you visit the hygienist as well when you are here; and you take care to brush and floss twice a day at home, you should never need lose a tooth or have root canal therapy.

Discover the benefits of Invisalign in West Malling

Dentistry has come far from the days when your only choice was to straighten your teeth with metal braces. Though modern metal braces are lighter and more comfortable to wear than ever before, there are also more discreet teeth straightening methods such as Invisalign, available at One Smile Oral Care.

invisalign-in-west-mallingInvisalign consists of a series of clear, plastic aligners and has many benefits over other teeth straightening treatments. At One Smile Oral Care in West Malling, Invisalign aligners are created with 3D computer imaging technology to monitor the complete process of your treatment from beginning to end.

The plastic aligners can correct gaps, overbites, underbites, crowded or misaligned teeth. Comfortable and transparent, first fitting to complete realignment may last up to 18 months, during which you will change new aligners every two weeks.

Invisalign allows you to eat, talk and participate in various social situations without the hassle of metal braces, all while fixing your smile. Invisalign has many obvious advantages such as invisibility, comfort and flexibility. However, there are a lot more benefits to wearing Invisalign that go far beyond the above.

Improved oral hygiene

Invisalign aligners are not fixed. You can easily remove them to brush and floss your teeth as you normally would. You can also easily clean the trays with water or a toothbrush to prevent build up. Having healthy teeth and gums while straightening your teeth is crucial for the success of the treatment.

Enjoy your food

One of the least enjoyable parts of wearing braces is that some of your favourite foods are off limits. With braces, you need to avoid hard or sticky foods to stop them from getting stuck in your braces or even damaging them. This is hardly an issue with Invisalign. You can remove the trays before meals and enjoy endless food possibilities.

Shorter treatment period

In most cases, metal braces require 18 months to two years to treat crooked teeth. However, Invisalign can correct misaligned teeth in just a year, depending on the severity of your case.

Do I need cosmetic dentistry?

There are many reasons why you may require a cosmetic dentistry consultation. Some of these may be more obvious than others. One of the most common is missing teeth. These missing teeth may impact your confidence and your willingness to share and show your teeth – but rest assured, this can be rectified with cosmetic dentistry in West Malling at One Smile Oral Care.

cosmetic-dentistry-in-west-mallingTeeth may not be missing but may be chipped or damaged. This can cause the tooth to become unstable and may affect how you feel about your smile. Stained teeth due to coffee stains, drinking wine and smoking cigarettes is another issue that can be resolved with cosmetic dentistry in West Malling. There are different options that can help, depending on the condition of your teeth, how long the procedure takes and your budget.

Cosmetic dentistry options

At One Smile Oral Care we offer many options for your cosmetic dentistry in West Malling. A consultation with one of our experienced dentists can help you choose what procedure is right for you.

For a permanent solution, damaged or chipped teeth can be rectified with veneers. Veneers are like false nails for the teeth – they cover the tooth and protect the surface of the chipped tooth from further damage. This will ensure that the as much of your natural tooth is preserved as possible, as well as protecting it from potential further harm.

Stained teeth can be cleaned using teeth whitening. The process we use to whiten the teeth is the Zoom! whitening kit, which involves applying a hydrogen peroxide gel onto your teeth while your gums are protected. This is one of our most popular procedures as the Zoom! whitening system uses exclusive technology to whiten your teeth to an average of eight shades lighter in a just over an hour,while you relax at our practice. It is ideal for anyone who wants immediate results.The Zoom! whitening kit is used to remove deep stains and discolouration. Once the gel is applied, a UV light activates the hydrogen peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth, gently and safely lightening your teeth.
