Reasons to use our dental hygienist services in Llanelli

We are professionals in what we do

Expert advice and knowledge on different ways to improve your oral hygiene routine at home so your gums can stay healthier for longer.

The best equipment

A variety of different scalers can be used to remove plaque and tartar build-up from your teeth and underneath your gums elevating them healthier and easier to clean.

Feel more confident

Big event coming up? No problem! Everyone wants their teeth to look their best for big occasions and at Murray Street Dental we have an air polisher available to help achieve just that. Air polishing is the perfect way to remove tough stains. It is a minimally invasive technique that uses a mixture of compressed air, water and fine powder to remove unsightly staining. Due to the ‘jet’ nature of air polishers, they can get into areas that were previously difficult to reach. In comparison to a dental scale and polish, it is a minimally invasive procedure. So it is painless and quick leaving patients coming back for the treatment time and time again.

Personal and tailored treatment

Let our dental hygienists in Llanelli guide you through the marketing to help you find the right products for you and your teeth.
