No. None of the treatments will give you any pain. Most of the cosmetic dental treatments are completely non-invasive with no need for injections or drills. Only dental implants will require you to have a local anaesthetic which serves to numb your mouth so that you won’t feel any pain during the treatment.

Yes. Teeth whitening is safe when it is carried out and is overseen by a dental professional. Problems with teeth whitening occur when patients try to whiten teeth themselves using kits found online or in shops.
We recommend that teeth whitening is suitable for adults and not children. We would advise pregnant and lactating women to wait to have their teeth whitened. Patients who have dental restorations such as crowns, dental implants or veneers should be aware that teeth whitening will only work on natural teeth and not on restorations.
You should only go to hospital if you have suffered an accident or trauma to your face or mouth which requires treatment for bleeding or deep wounds. Any other pain relating to your mouth, teeth or gums can be dealt with by an emergency dentist.

  • Avoid touching the root.
  • If the tooth is dirty, rinse it for no more than 10 seconds under cold, running water.
  • Put the tooth back in the socket if possible. Bite down on a piece of clean material to keep it in place. If you can’t put it back in the socket, keep the tooth in your mouth between your cheeks and teeth, or place it in a container and cover it with milk.
Most adults with good general and oral health are suitable for dental implants. Young people whose jaw is still growing are usually not suitable. Anyone who smokes or drinks heavily may also not be suitable. Everyone is different – Alison will be able to provide more information tailored to you.

You may also notice toothache more at night because you are less distracted by work and the busyness of the day. Finally, some people grind their teeth at night, and this can enhance the pain if you’re suffering with toothache.
No, using the hyperhidrosis injections to reduce sweating in a few areas will not affect your body’s ability to cool down. Neither will it mean that other parts of your body will sweat more.
