At Harley Street 22 Studio, we will spend time getting to know you and understanding your wishes and goals for your dental care and any cosmetic treatments. We value each patient as an individual and are proud of the customized and individual services we are able to offer. We use state-of-the-art equipment and the latest techniques to maximize your comfort and to provide you with outstanding results. Our goal is to make our patients look and feel their best.
Following your Personal Consultation, you will receive a Complete Examination. A Complete Examination is as the name implies-a complete and thorough evaluation of your teeth, gums, TMJ, cheeks, lips, throat, lymph nodes and muscles of your jaw area.
Following your Complete Examination, we will do a basic clean and polish. Should you require further cleaning, we will book you in for another appointment.
For the polishing we offer the Jet Polish to our patients to give their smiles a deep comprehensive polish which will remove any smoking, coffee, tea, or wine stains from your teeth.
Based on your Personal Consultation and Complete Examination, we will create a proposed treatment plan for you, after discussing all options and implications of various alternative treatments and your personal goals.
Harley Street 22 Studio uses digital X rays to get a closer look at potential problems identified in the Complete Examination. This technology allows the dental team to have an immediate and detailed view of the area examined. This extraordinary new technology surpasses the diagnostic abilities of traditional film and it does so with substantially less radiation exposure to both the patient and the dental professionals while providing unmatched image quality.
What is "the smile of your dreams"?
For some it's a Hollywood-style perfection. The cover of Vogue or Glamour. For others it's simply the confidence that comes from having brighter, whiter, straighter teeth. Whatever your ideal smile, we are available to help you-often in just two to three visits!
In many cases, we can straighten and realign crooked teeth – almost instantly. Your cosmetic options include bonding, veneers, whitening, crowns (caps), dentures and implant supported teeth.
You may be bothered by a black filling that shows when you smile wide. Undetectable tooth color blended fillings can eliminate these worries. It can all blend with your own smile.
I will briefly explain the different treatments available for you. Lets start with.
There are two different types of whitening systems that we offer our patients here.
One is the “Zoom bleaching” (the system used in the makeover shows on TV) which is done entirely in the studio and takes an hour and a half. You can watch your own favorite DVD on our DVD goggles when this is going on
You leave with an instantly brighter, whiter smile.
For at least 48 hours coffee and colorful food such as berries, soy sauce, red wine etc should be avoided
The other is “the home bleaching”
We start by taking impressions of your teeth and send them to a lab which will make you custom fit bleaching trays, very thin plastic trays surrounding your teeth with a perfect fit.
You then put a bleaching gel in the trays and place them over your teeth and sleep with them for about four to eight nights.
Bleaching is such a great treatment and often you find that this alone will make you a lot happier with your smile.
Bonding is one of Dr Andersson’s personal favourites.
He can very easily Close gaps, change the shape of teeth and repair chipped teeth with this NON INVASIVE technique.
No injection is necessary for this treatment. It is totally painless, done instantly, and often a lot quicker and cheaper than other treatment options.
Bonding is a way of adding material on to the tooth and then shaping and polishing it to the required shape.
The composite material used is totally matched to your tooth and after final polishing you would never know it was not there naturally to start with.

What are they and how are they done?
Veneers are a thin layer of porcelain bonded on to your tooth to get required shape, color and surface.
How are they done?
FIRST APPOINTMENT: (Preparation)
At your first visit, the teeth are prepared and an impression is taken. Normally, only about 1millimetre of enamel is reduced from the front and the edges of the teeth. An impression is taken and sent to the lab where each porcelain veneer is custom made to our specifications. Do not use bleaching products for two weeks prior to this appointment or shade selection will be hindered.
Normally it will take 7 - 14 days for the lab to make the veneers. Oral hygiene is a must during this period. Healthy gums are required to place your new veneers! Brush at least 3 times a day and be sure to gently massage the gums with the brush. Note: do not floss next to the temporaries or you will pop them off. Also, do not bite into anything with the temporaries or they will break. Normal chewing may resume after the placement of the veneers.
SECOND APPOINTMENT: (Placement of Veneers)
The Veneers will be bonded in place by a resin bonding technique. After you leave it will take up to 48 hours for them to fully set. During this time, you should avoid hard foods and maintain a relatively soft diet. Extremes in temperature (either hot or cold) should also be avoided. Avoid alcohol and the medicated mouth washes because they have the potential to affect the resin bonding cementing material during this early phase. Any sensitivity you have for 24 hours after the appointment is normal and will dissipate.
ONE WEEK FOLLOW-UP:
At this we will fine tune the veneers both functionally and cosmetically, if needed. Be patient, it will take your gums, lips, tongue, bite, cheeks and speech time to accommodate to your "new" teeth.
What is a crown?
A Crown (cap) is a way of making your tooth smooth and healthy. It replaces some or all of the outer part of the tooth. Caps fit over and are bonded or cemented (glued) onto your tooth.
It is a long-term answer for any of your teeth which are badly decayed, heavily filled, or unsightly.
Crowns are usually made of ceramic (or a combination of gold and ceramic)
Your "Preparation Appointment"
At this visit we remove the damaged and decayed parts of the tooth, and ALL old fillings. Once the tooth is cleaned out we will know if a core build up or a post is needed. If needed it will serve to hold the crown to the tooth. An impression will be taken once the preparation is done. The tooth will then be covered by a temporary crown. It will protect the tooth while the lab is handcrafting your beautiful new crown.
Sometimes, it can be sensitive to hot and cold things, and your gum may be a little sore. You may need to take a mild pain killer like Ibuprofen or Paracetamol. Keep your tooth very clean You can eat on teeth which have been prepared for caps - it does them no harm. Do avoid sticky or chewy foods though because this can pull the temporary crown off since it is only cemented with a temporary cement
The temporary teeth are very beautifully made and will not be unsightly while you are waiting for your permanent crown.
Your "Fitting Appointment"
The crown will be cemented to the tooth and the bite will be adjusted so your bite feels absolutely normal when you leave.
Bridges are basically several crowns joined together. As a crown it is also done in two main stages. The preparation and the fitting. They are used when a tooth/teeth is/are missing.
A lot of the times an implant retained crown can be used to fill the gap of the missing tooth instead.
See under implants on home page
If you have any missing teeth, even one, or have lost all your teeth then you should consider the exciting possibility of dental implants.
It may seem like an impossible dream but advances in dentistry mean that teeth can now be replaced thanks to dental implants.
A single visit is usually all that is required for implant insertion. Once in place they are covered by gum tissue and allowed between four to six months to become firmly attached to the jaw bone.
During this time existing dentures of a temporary bridge/crown can be worn comfortably.
Once the implants have taken, the replacement teeth can be made and fitted.
Implants can be fitted in one of two ways:
Immediate Implant placement – the dental implant is placed at the same time that the tooth of teeth are removed. The advantages of this approached are a reduction in treatment time and bone preservation. Weather of not this is possible will depend on the condition of your bone at the time of tooth removal. If infection is present it may be necessary to defer implant placement for three months while new healthy bone reforms in the area.
Delayed implant placement - the dental implant is inserted into a region of the mouth where the tooth or teeth have previously been removed or have been missing for some time.
Implant treatment may entail a combination of the above insertion methods and the time required to place them will depend on the number being inserted and their position in the mouth. Every effort will be made to keep the treatment time to a minimum whilst not jeopardizing the final result.
The first and most frequently asked question. It is surprising how little pain is felt after the procedure. Often only minor discomfort similar to that of a simple dental extraction is experienced.
Osteo-ti is a British manufactured implant system which is CE marked, an internationally recognized sign showing that the medical device provides patients with a high level of protection, high success level and does not compromise your health and safety.
A life long sentence to dentures was once the only sad solution to the debilitating
condition of missing teeth. But if you long to return to the good times before the frustration of dentures when you still had all your own teeth then implants could be the answer. Dental implants eliminate the discomfort and embarrassment associated with loose fitting false teeth. Patients who have benefited from dental implants have said that their self confidence and quality of life improved.
It is not a simple case of replacing each missing tooth with an individual implant. The number of implants necessary has to be calculated according to individual requirements.
As the name suggest it is implanted into the jaw acting like a root, and the replacement teeth are later fastened to it. Dental implants feel and function just like natural teeth on biting. The Osteo-ti Ezeeplant dental implant is a small tapered screw designed to copy the shape of a natural tooth root. This shape makes it easier to insert as it almost matches the size and shape of the original tooth root it is replacing. It is made from Titanium Alloy, a biologically safe material which the body accepts as its own, so there need be no fear of rejection due to an allergic reaction.
Implants can be used just like real teeth in a variety of ways to provide different treatment options to suit your requirements. From one to complete arch full of teeth is possible. Even dentures can be made feel more comfortable and secure. A full arch of teeth fixed in the mouth makes you feel more confident and smiling comes easily once again.
Yes believe it of not, anyone regardless of age or who is unhappy with the condition of their mouth and wants to eat without discomfort, free from the worries of denture stability when laughing and talking can benefit. If you are healthy enough for a simple extraction then there is a good chance you may be able to have implants.
Age is not an excluding factor, however, it is not advisable to delay placement of implants as the jaw bone starts to shrink away once the teeth have been lost. This loss of jaw bone reduces facial support resulting in premature ageing. It has been shown that replacing missing teeth with dental implants almost eliminates bone loss.
Fortunately implants do not suffer from tooth decay. However, it is essential for long-term success that home care is maintained together with routine visits to the hygienist to carry out cleaning just like real teeth.
As individual requirements will be different, the cost will vary depending on the complexity and the number of implants required. An individual assessmentof fees will be determined and a written estimate provided before treatment begins. Surprisingly the total cost of implant treatment is often comparable to the expense of conventional bridge work.
Noting could be simpler – just talk to your dentist about dental implants and get your smile back
Botulinum toxin is a bacterium that blocks release of acetylcholine, the substance responsible for transmitting electrical impulses that elicit muscle contraction. In medicine, Botulinum toxin is injected directly into hyperactive muscles. It has been safe and effectively used for treatment of strabismus (cross-eye) and blempharospasm(lidspasm) since early eighties.
Hyperactivity of the facial expression muscles often results the development of deep frown lines, forehead lines and/or crown’s feet. Injecting botulinum toxin into the affected area temporarily paralyzes the underlying muscles responsible for wrinkling, giving the face a more relaxed and pleasant appearance. The wrinkles become smoother or disappear altogether.
The initial effect of treatment becomes visible within 48 to 72 hours. The maximum effect is reached in about 1 to 2 weeks. Your facial expression will become more relaxed but by no means mask-like. The overall result is very natural. The effect of treatment generally last 4 to 6 months. Re-treatment is then required.
Botulinum toxin injection is generally a safe and effective treatment method.
Nevertheless, certain side effects can occur but, like the intended treatment effects, they are mostly reversible.
At the appointment, you will be informed about the potential side effects of botulinum toxin therapy, contraindication to therapy, and potential drug interactions.
Bruising and swelling at the injection site
Slight feeling of nausea
Tiredness, pain in the arms and legs
Temporarily drooping of the eyebrow or upper eye lid
Brief visual disturbances
Dryness of the eyes
Lambert- Eaton syndrome
Blood coagulation disorders
Drug interactions can occur when botulinum toxin is used concomitantly with other medication.
Since these medications can alter the effects of botulinum toxin, you must ensure that your doctor is aware of any current medications you are taking, especially
Aminoglycoside antibiotics such as amakin, gentamicin, neomycin, netilmicin, streptomycin and tobramycin, Anesthetic, Muscle relaxants
Dermal fillers are being used more and more to help reverse the changes associated with aging. Because the goal is to return the dermis to its original youthful state, dermal fillers can give a more natural appearance than surgical face lifts. Dermal fillers are being used to reduce or eliminate wrinkles, raise scar depressions, enhance lips, and replace soft-tissue volume loss.
