What should I do if I have a dental emergency?
If you need urgent dental treatment, call us and we will do everything we can to see you as quickly as possible. If you’re in pain, don’t suffer in silence!
In the meantime, we can offer advice over the telephone and if it’s outside of working hours, we can provide advice via our website, which is accessible 24 hours a day.
Examples of dental injuries and emergency situations include broken teeth, dislodged teeth, severe dental pain, dental abscesses and toothache associated with the wisdom teeth.
Preventing dental emergencies
Sometimes, it’s impossible to prevent a dental emergency; however, some accidents and illnesses can be prevented. Steps you can take include wearing a protective mouth guard when playing sport, always wearing a seatbelt, seeing your dentist for regular check-ups and getting any symptoms, such as bleeding gums and toothache, checked out, rather than leaving them. We also recommend preventative measures such as maintaining good oral hygiene at home and steering clear of foods and drinks, which can increase your risk of decay; examples include fizzy drinks, sweets and biscuits.
If you’re looking to lighten and brighten your smile this autumn, look no further than our incredible home whitening system. With our premium whitening gels, your smile will look beautiful and bright in no time and you can enjoy the results in the comfort of your own home.
We offer convenient and effective home whitening treatment using an incredible new range of platinum whitening gels.
What does home whitening involve?
Home whitening is a really convenient solution to discolouration or staining, especially if you’re constantly under time pressure and you would struggle to organise a series of dental appointments. With home whitening, you can enjoy all the benefits of a bright white smile without even leaving the house, as treatment takes place at your home.
The treatment process is wonderfully simple and involves wearing a custom-made whitening tray, which contains whitening gel, for a period of time each day. The trays are made to fit your teeth perfectly so they should be very comfortable and we generally recommend a treatment time of around 2 weeks, with the trays in place for approximately 6 hours per day. We find that most patients prefer to wear their whitening trays at night, so that treatment has no effect on their normal daily routine, social life or work commitments.
Our whitening and cleaning offer
We are delighted to offer our clients in Deansgrange and beyond an amazing offer of €195 for tooth whitening and a cleaning treatment for a limited period of time; call us now to make the most of this incredible price and ensure your smile looks radiant and healthy in time for years to come!
At Dublin18 Dental Care we offer orthodontic treatment for teenagers and adults. Orthodontic problems are common in teenagers and often, it’s best to intervene early for optimum results.
We provide high quality fixed orthodontics for younger patients and we offer a special discounted rate of €3000.
Does my child need braces?
It is very common for children to have alignment issues and problems with the bite and we are often able to detect signs from a very early age. It is usually best to treat teenagers, rather than waiting until they are older because treatment works faster, the outcome is better and early treatment enables children to enjoy the benefits of treatment sooner. It is possible for adults to have treatment, but as orthodontic problems tend to get worse with time, treatment usually takes longer and the results are sometimes not as good.
If your child needs braces, we will discuss this with you and highlight the issues and explain how braces could help and what benefits treatment would bring.
The advantages of fixed orthodontics
Orthodontic treatment has a host of benefits for teenagers and it can really make a difference to confidence levels, as well as oral function. Orthodontic issues can affect speech, facial aesthetics and the ability to eat, as well as the look of the smile and treatment helps to resolve these issues.
Fixed braces are a tried and tested solution and they are guaranteed to produce excellent results. Modern braces are light and much less cumbersome than they used to be and they are also more comfortable. With a straight smile, children can feel more confident and they don’t have to worry about comments from others.
Payment plans at Dublin18 Dental Care
We offer flexible payment options to make orthodontic treatment more affordable for parents, including payment plans, which allow you to spread the cost of treatment and pay the total in monthly instalments.
Have you been searching for an orthodontic treatment, which offers you everything? Have you been putting off wearing braces for years because you can’t bear the thought of wearing visible braces for an age? Now, we offer a solution to your orthodontic woes, which will give you a stunning straight smile in just 6 months with minimal hassle and amazing discreet aesthetics.
What is 6 Month Smiles and how does it work?
6 Month Smiles is a rapid orthodontic system, which uses state of the art fixed braces to move the teeth very quickly. These fixed braces use self-ligating wires and brackets to generate forces, which guide the teeth into position with minimal discomfort. This treatment is geared towards patients who have issues with the social 6, the front teeth, which can be seen when you smile. By focusing solely on these teeth, the braces work much faster than other treatments and patients who only need minor correction do not have to undergo treatment, which is more intensive than required. This treatment also ensures the best aesthetics, as the teeth that are visible when you smile are the focal point of treatment.
Is 6 Month Smiles an option for me?
If you have mild or moderate issues that affect your front teeth and you are looking for a discreet, quick and painless treatment, 6 Month Smiles could be just the ticket. This treatment is an incredible option for those who have problems with the front teeth and it is a really impressive alternative to traditional fixed braces, which are more noticeable, slower and less comfortable.
We will be able to determine if you are a suitable candidate for this system when we have examined your teeth and check your bite during your consultation. If this is not the best option for your individual needs, we can explore other treatments with you.
At Dublin18 Dental Care we know all too well that accidents can happen at any time and this is why we are on hand to provide 24 hour assistance for our patients.

Dental emergencies can happen when you least expect them and include chipped and fractured teeth, severe dental pain and dislodged teeth. If you have sudden dental pain, which is very severe, you have lost a tooth or you fear a tooth may be broken, it is best to seek urgent advice. Call the surgery and we will do our best to arrange an appointment for you as quickly as possible and relieve your pain. We can also offer self-help advice, such as applying an ice pack to the tooth or taking over the counter pain relief to make you feel more comfortable in the meantime.
If you’ve lost a tooth in an accident or while playing sport, it may be possible for us to save the tooth and secure it back into its socket. Call ahead and get to us as quickly as you can and our dental team will do their best to re-implant the tooth. While you make your way to us, place the tooth in a glass of milk or hold it carefully between the gum and the cheek; this helps to keep the tooth moist.
At Dublin18 Dental Care we are delighted to offer same-day crowns with the help of amazing Cerec technology. We are offering this incredible treatment for just €500 this summer!
What is Cerec?
Cerec is a form of technology, which enables us to complete the entire crowning process in a single day. With Cerec, we are able to design, mill and fit a custom-designed crown on the same day, so you don’t have to wait around to enjoy the results of treatment. Cerec uses state of the art software to convert camera images of the tooth into 3D models and templates, which are sent to the on-site milling machine. The milling process takes a matter of seconds and once the new crown is ready, it can then be fitted.
What’s so good about Cerec?
There are so many benefits of having Cerec on-site. The time period for crown treatment is vastly reduced, from 2 weeks to a single treatment session, there is no need for a temporary crown and patients spend much less time in the dental chair, which is particularly advantageous for those who suffer from dental anxiety. There is also the added convenience of only needing to arrange a single appointment and patients don’t have to put up with uncomfortable process of creating putty moulds, as Cerec uses images, rather than impressions.
Cerec also enables our dentists to have more influence in the treatment process, which is very quick and accurate.
What are the advantages of crowns?
Dental crowns are designed to strengthen the teeth when they are weak as a result of decay or injury. With a crown, the tooth is stronger, more functional and more aesthetically pleasing. Our bespoke crowns create beautiful aesthetics and they are made from high quality, durable materials.
The school holidays are in full swing, so what better time to arrange your child’s next check-up? During the summer break, we will be offering routine appointments for all the family and we look forward to catching up with you and your children. At the moment, we are offering a special price of €60 for back-to-school check-ups and a polish.
Children’s dental checks
Children’s dental checks are really important, not just for identifying possible danger signs of cavities, but also to enable us to keep an eye on tooth growth and development. We recommend regular check-ups for patients of all ages and we always look forward to seeing our younger patients. Ideally, we like to see children every 6 months from the age of 12-24 months.
Some people assume that dental checks aren’t important for children because their milk teeth are supposed to fall out anyway, but this is not the case and routine check-ups are essential for good oral health. Children who visit a dentist on a regular basis are less likely to suffer from decay and lose their teeth prematurely, which reduces the risk of problems during adulthood and orthodontic issues.
What happens during a check-up?
Check-ups are straightforward and painless and they only take a few minutes. We strive to ensure that our check-ups for kids are really fun and we understand that some of our smaller patients can be a little apprehensive. Our dentists and nurses are very friendly and lively and they will do everything they can to help children settle and ensure they enjoy their time at Dublin18 Dental Care.
During a check-up, the dentist will have a good look at the child’s teeth, check their gums and tongue and record any changes in their notes. As children’s teeth are still growing and milk teeth are falling out and being replaced with adult teeth, it’s important to take note of differences from the last check-up and keep an eye on the alignment of the teeth and the development of the adult teeth. Our dentists also look out for early warning signs of tooth decay and cavities and they are able to provide advice for adults and children about teeth cleaning and diet.
The holidays have flown by and some parents may already be planning for going back to school. If your child plays contact sports or any sport than carries a risk of dental injuries, we strongly recommend providing them with a mouth guard to take back to school with them.
We provide custom-made mouth guards in a selection of colours, patterns and designs, so you can look cool on the pitch and stand out from the crowd. Our mouth guards are bespoke for a perfect fit and you are welcome to add your own design touches.
What are the advantages of mouth guards?
Mouth guards are primarily designed to protect the teeth from injury and they can literally make the difference between keeping and losing teeth. Sport has so many benefits for health, social skills and general wellbeing, but it can be dangerous and it’s advisable to take steps to protect yourself from injury. Mouth guards help to reduce the risk of dislodged teeth, chipped and broken teeth and gum injuries.
It is possible to buy mouth guards and mould them yourself at home, but the fit is inferior to a dentist-made gum shield and this can result is soreness and irritation and prevent you from being able to give the match or game your full attention. With custom-made mouth guards, the gum shield is designed to fit the contours and shapes of the teeth perfectly, so you can concentrate on your performance without worrying about pain or your gum shield coming loose. We can also offer a range of colours to suit your preferences.
We are offering bespoke mouth guards for just €50, so call us now and book your child’s appointment to make the most of this great offer!

With dental implants, we are able to restore full function to the mouth and create stunning smiles, so what are you waiting for? If you have missing teeth, call us now and book your appointment to take advantage of this incredible offer.
What are dental implants and how could treatment benefit me?
Dental implants are the newest treatment on the market for missing teeth. This versatile treatment is suitable for patients of all ages with different needs and it can be used to replace any number of teeth, from a single tooth to a full arch of lost teeth. Implants are a modern, innovative and long-term term solution to dental bridges and dentures.
Implants are designed to replace the tooth root and they lie beneath the gums in the jaw bone tissue. As they are made from titanium, which is biocompatible, they are able to integrate into the bone and this provides optimum stability for the rest of the tooth, which is replaced by a new restoration. Implants are versatile because they are compatible with crowns, dentures and dental bridges.
Implants provide patients with a wide range of dental needs with a host of benefits. Implants are the nearest thing to a natural tooth and they enable you to do everything you would normally do if you had a full set of functioning natural teeth. As implants are made from titanium, they are able to integrate into the bone without causing any harm to the surrounding gum tissue or neighbouring roots. With implants, your smile is secure for years to come and the aesthetics are amazing; implants can also help to reduce bone loss and they are very easy to look after.
