Dreaming of a white Christmas?

At Rhiwbina Dental we can’t promise snow – but we can guarantee a whiter, brighter smile with our professional teeth whitening services!

Stained and yellowing teeth are an unfortunate, yet inevitable, side-effect of getting older – but thankfully those unsightly shades can be quickly and efficiently reversed with a safe, professional bleaching treatment. At Rhiwbina we offer a range of options to suit different needs – and with Christmas around the corner, what better time to get photo-ready with a beautifully bright smile?

So before party season gets into full swing, why not gift yourself a teeth-whitening treatment at Rhiwbina Dental? Here we’ve provided everything you need to know before you book your consultation.

Teeth whitening is…

Professional. Carried out by a dentist, teeth whitening involves safely and efficiently bleaching your teeth to remove those deep, yellow stains caused by diet, smoking and ageing.

Flexible. With our take-home whitening system, you can whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home, at a time that suits you, with results in just two weeks.

Bespoke. Your dentist is uniquely qualified and equipped to tailor your teeth-whitening treatment to your needs. You will be prescribed the strength and quantity of bleaching gel that’s right for you, and your whitening trays will be custom-made for you – meaning the bleaching gel accurately targets your teeth, without touching your gums.

Safe. Our advanced whitening delivers the best possible results with the least possible discomfort. If you do experience sensitivity during treatment, your dentist will be on-hand to deal with any concerns or adjust your prescription.

Risk-free. Whitening treatments might be cheaper online or over the counter, but because they’re not professionally administered, they’re less predictable – either causing painful side-effects, or not showing any noticeable difference in tooth shade. Because dentists can offer prescription-only, higher-concentration bleaching gel, you’ll get better results, faster, and your experience can be monitored throughout.

Long-lasting. If you maintain a good oral hygiene routine and are mindful of consuming staining foods and drinks, your new, all-white smile may stay that way for several years.

Rhiwbina Dental News & Offers


Fundraising record!
At last year’s Rhiwbina Festival, we raised an amazing £1360.68 for the charity Face Up Cymru, and had set ourselves a target of beating that this year. We’re delighted to report that, with your support, we did it – a fantastic £1420.00 was raised!

Face Up is a charity that supports patients with head and neck cancer through the journey of managing and coming to terms with their diagnosis and treatment. They have a range of objectives to help make patients’ lives more comfortable; including providing specialist equipment, funding a dedicated physiotherapist, social worker and clinical nurse specialising in wound care. They provide patient self-help groups to assist with confidence building, coping strategies and target-setting as well as a counselor to provide professional support.

John Hawkins, who established the original dental surgery in Rhiwbina village over 40 years ago, is a trustee of the charity, having suffered with oral cancer himself. As we still have such a close relationship with John (as do many of our patients), we wanted to support a charity that is so close to our hearts.

Celebrating 20 years
In June, we had our 20th Anniversary party at The Pines, celebrating two wonderful decades since Nick bought and redeveloped Rhiwbina Dental. It’s grown into a practice of which we’re all very proud to be a part, providing excellence in dentistry that is much appreciated by our patients. But we’re not done growing! In fact, that leads us to our next news item…

Welcome to David!
We have been fortunate enough to attract Dr David Pitt to our team here at The Pines. David is a Specialist in Restorative Dentistry, with an interest in implants and cosmetic dentistry. Although was trained in Cardiff, he has pursued this interest and benefited from training and experience elsewhere in the UK, Europe and even the USA before finally settling back here.

In addition to being a highly experienced implant dentist, David recently completed a three-year Master’s in Non-Surgical Facial Aesthetics (the first degree of its kind in Europe) in order to responsibly deliver anti-wrinkle treatments, facial fillers and rejuvenating facial skin peels to his patients.

On moving his team to The Pines, David stated, “We are all excited about the move and to be able to offer you the same care-based service in our new premises, with upgraded facilities. If you have an existing appointment, this is still secured as we have simply transferred our appointment diary to The Pines.”

If you have any questions about the move, please call us on 029 2062 6551.

Mouth Cancer Action – 15 Fast Facts

Mouth Cancer Action is a charity campaign from the Oral Health Foundation. Its main aim is to raise awareness of the risks, signs and symptoms of mouth cancer in order to encourage more early diagnoses.

Want to help? Start with our 15 fast facts:

  1. Early diagnosis can increase survival rates from 50% to 90%.
  2. More than 7,500 people in the UK are diagnosed with Mouth Cancer every year.
  3. 18 people every day are diagnosed with mouth cancer in the UK. That’s 1 person every 77 minutes.
  4. The number of people diagnosed with mouth cancer has increased by 40% in the last decade.
  5. Smoking, alcohol, sexual activity (Human Papilloma Virus or HPV) and a poor diet are risk factors, but mouth cancer can affect everybody.
  6. Second-hand or environmental tobacco smoke has been named a probable cause of mouth cancer.
  7. Mouth cancer can impact how you eat, drink, speak and even breathe.
  8. 80% of people don’t know the symptoms of mouth cancer.
  9. Mouth cancer can strike in a number of places including the lips, tongue, gums and cheeks.
  10. If you notice any changes in your mouth, such as lumps, white or red patches or ulcers, it is essential that you make an appointment to see your dentist.
  11. HPV could rival tobacco and alcohol as a leading risk factor within the next 10 years.
  12. All girls aged 12 to 13 are offered HPV (human papilloma virus) vaccination as part of the NHS childhood vaccination programme.
  13. People who drink and use tobacco in excess are up to 30 times more likely to develop mouth cancer.
  14. Mouth cancer is ranked the 16th most common cancer in the UK and it is one of few cancers that experts predict will continue to increase in the coming years.
  15. Around seven people lose their battle with mouth cancer every single day in the UK.

Now, here are 5 things you can do:

  1. Pucker up. Get involved in the Blue Lip Selfie campaign to spread the word about Mouth Cancer. Just slap on some blue lipstick and pucker up! Then you can share it on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #BlueLipSelfie!
  2. Wear a blue ribbon. But don’t just buy one for you… get your family, friends and colleagues to pitch in too! We want to see as many of you as possible wearing them as a sign of support. You can purchase them from the online shop.
  3. Stop smoking! Research has shown that ex-smokers reduce their risk of mouth cancer by more than a third. You’ll be protecting yourself and those around you, as secondhand smoke is another risk factor.
  4. Eat better. Non-starchy vegetables and fruits (not salted or pickled), and foods containing carotenoids, can actually help to reduce mouth cancer risk.
  5. Get checked! It is important that you regularly check your mouth for any changes. If any changes are spotted, please book an appointment to see the dentist immediately.

Find out more on the official campaign website and call us on 02920 626 551 today to make an appointment to get checked out. Better safe than sorry!
