Our services
in Tilehurst, Reading

At your appointment, we will ask about your concerns and your expectations. We will carry out a thorough examination of your mouth and let you know what we find. 

If we think that you need treatment, we will explain the treatments that are available and the benefits and costs of each. We like you to ask questions and we will do our best to give you clear answers.

When you have decided on your preferred treatment, we will give you a written plan of how we will provide it and confirm the cost.

Visit Triangle Dental for one of the best local general dentistry services in Tilehurst, Reading.

Prevention

Our aim is to prevent dental disease and we want all our patients to understand the importance of good dental health. Our hygienists play key role in helping you to keep your teeth and gums healthy by making sure that your teeth are free of plaque and hard deposits (scale). We encourage all our patients to have regular appointments with a hygienist who will help you find the best way to keep your teeth clean and your gums healthy (it’s not always obvious). And they will show you how to use electric toothbrushes effectively along with interdental brushes, dental floss and tape.
  
Our child patients benefit from regular visits to our preventive dental unit for help with toothbrushing and reminders about diet. Most of our young patients have excellent teeth and gums. We often recommend fissure sealants – a quick, effective (and painless) way of protecting molars.

Restoring your teeth

At Triangle Dental, we will use the latest techniques and materials to restore your teeth, making sure that they look good and function normally. We use tooth-coloured fillings to help you keep a natural look. 

If your teeth have a lot of decay or wear or if a tooth has cracked, we may suggest a crown to protect your tooth. Our crowns are usually made from tooth-coloured porcelain but occasionally we may recommend a gold crown, especially if it is at the back of the mouth.

If the nerve of your tooth is infected or has died, we will need to remove it, clean out the canal and fill it to prevent you getting an abscess and causing you severe pain. Root fillings can be complicated and we will usually refer you to a local specialist.

Cosmetic dentistry

We want you to feel good about your teeth and want to help you to have your ideal smile. New developments in dentistry mean that many treatments are unnoticeable and leave you with teeth that look naturally healthy and keep you smiling. Great!

The dentists at Triangle Dental have all been on postgraduate courses to keep their skills up to date and to understand new techniques and materials. 

Tooth whitening
Some people have naturally darker teeth but teeth can also change colour as we get older and because of our diet. Tooth whitening can improve appearance and give you confidence and the benefits will last for a long time. Please let us know if you are interested in whitening your teeth. Although we frequently provide tooth whitening (and enjoy helping you to feel good about yourself) we will always make sure that it is suitable for you.  

Orthodontics
At Triangle Dental, we look after about 3,000 children and routinely assess their potential orthodontic needs. There is no age limit, and some of our adult patients also have orthodontics. We usually refer patients to our local orthodontic specialists in Tilehurst, Reading and Newbury. 

If your teeth need only minor adjustment, we may suggest an Inman Aligner, which straightens teeth within 8 to 12 weeks. One of our dentists is a trained to provide Invisalign Aligners.  

Take a look at the Oral Health Foundation website, for more details.

Missing teeth

If you have lost one or two teeth, we can make you a bridge. A bridge is fixed permanently to one or two of your remaining teeth and a false tooth fills the gap. We take great care to ensure that bridge matches the colour of your natural teeth. Another option is to replace missing teeth with dental implants. As these are a more complex treatment, we would refer you to a local specialist practice.

If you are missing several teeth, we may suggest a denture. Our dentists will work with you to create natural looking dentures that are comfortable and fit well. Getting the look right is important and we will check our progress with you at every stage to make sure that you are pleased with the final result. Some of our dentists have undertaken postgraduate study and training to refine their skills in making complete or partial dentures.
