Scale & Polish

Nothing beats the refreshing feel of professionally cleaned teeth! At Restore Dental, we pride ourselves on offering thorough, effective, and comfortable scale and polish cleanings. This process doesn't just enhance your smile — it significantly contributes to your oral health.


What is a scale and polish cleaning?


A scale and polish, or professional teeth cleaning, is a preventative dental procedure designed to keep your teeth healthy and your smile bright. 


With this treatment, we thoroughly clean your teeth and gums, remove plaque and tartar build-up, and ward off dental problems like gum disease and cavities.


What happens during a scale and polish cleaning?


  1. Scaling: Our dental professionals use specialised instruments to gently remove plaque and tartar deposits from your teeth surfaces, getting into all those hard-to-reach spots that your toothbrush can't access.

  2. Polishing: Next, we use a high-speed brush and gritty paste to polish your teeth, effectively removing any surface stains and leaving your teeth smooth and shiny.

  3. Fluoride: We will ask you to rinse your mouth to remove any remaining debris before applying a fluoride gel. This strengthens the enamel and prevents cavities.


How often should I get a scale and polish?


It's advised to have a professional teeth cleaning twice a year. We recommend having your scale and polish cleaning at the same appointment as your routine check-up. This way, you can optimally maintain your oral health!


Why are scale and polish cleanings essential?


Regular scale and polish cleanings offer multiple benefits, including:


  • Preventing gum disease and cavities

  • Brightening your smile

  • Removing surface stains

  • Freshening your breath
