Teeth whitening treatment improve the colour of your natural teeth safely, in the comfort of your own home. Having a brighter, whiter smile is the simplest yet most effective way to boost your confidence!

The Product

Here at Newby Dental Practice, we use Boutique whitening. Boutique is a premium tooth whitening product. Not only is this the product we recommend for our patients, it is what we use ourselves.
Get that whiter smile you have always wanted with Boutique in just a few weeks! Now everybody has different situations and everybody’s oral health is completely different. We do need to have an appointment with you beforehand to check you are dentally fit for the teeth whitening. This is a free consultation with our treatment coordinator, where you will discuss the time frame and cost of your whitening experience.

How Does it work?

Boutique whitening works with the use of special trays (think gum shields, or retainers. They look similar to this) which are made specifically for you. We will take an impression of your teeth and send it off to the lab, where your trays are then made. These will then be sent back to us, where we then will contact you and have you come in to try them on to check they are comfortable and fit well. There are two ways of using the whitening. Either during the day or over night. Depending on your lifestyle, we have the option to suit you best! You will then be sent with your Day/Night kit and your whitening journey begins.

Dental treatments such as crowns or fillings are not affected by the whitening, therefore will not change colour. As the colour of your teeth lighten during your whitening experience, any dark areas within your teeth may show and become more obvious, therefore you may want to discuss this with us, to see how we can improve and correct these. Your fresh new pearly whites are just as important to us as they are to you! So what are you waiting for? Contact us now on 01723 670500 to book your consultation.

Profhilo: The Facts

Profhilo Has The Highest Concentration Of HA In The Market

Profhilo contains 32mg of low molecular weight HA (80-100 Kda) and 32 mg of high molecular weight HA (1100-1400 Kda). This gives one of the highest concentrations of HA on the market totalling 64 mg of HA in a 2ml prefilled syringe. Remarkably this can still be extruded using a 29g needle.

Profhilo Is Stabilised By…

Profhilo is developed by using a patented technology resulting in hybrid cooperative complexes between high molecular weight HA and low molecular HA without the use of any chemical cross-linking compounds. These complexes increase the stability of HA to enzymatic and mechanical degradation.

Profhilo’s Nahyo Technology

Thermal cross-linking changes the character and behaviour of the HA resulting in the formation of co-operative hybrid complexes which modulate the tissues. This is also the explanation for the different biological behaviour with respect to H-HA and L-HA alone. One of the main advantages in longevity. Hybrid cooperative complexes have proven to be very stable with natural hyaluronidase (BTH) digestion when compared to H-HA, widely used in biorevitalisation products, or L-HA alone resulting in the long-lasting release and the dual action of the two HA components. This dual action is ideal for remodelling laxity.

Profhilo’s Advantages

In Profhilo, L-HA is released slowly from the HA hybrid complexes and therefore does not trigger the first inflammatory cytokines, making it very biocompatible. It also increases patient comfort during and after treatment and provides hydration to the skin- the Hydro effect.

H-HA in Profhilo provides a stable HA architecture in the dermis. This gives a volumetric effect – the Lift effect.

Another advantage of the stable co-operative hybrid complex when compared to H-HA and L-HA is the increase in the expression levels of type I and type III collagen in fibroblast and type IV and VII collagen in keratinocytes.

This results in improved skin hydration and quality both in the dermis and epidermis. There is also increased production of endogenous HA and elastin giving the skin a more youthful look.

Don’t Forget Your Oral Health This Pancake Day

Effect of pancake day on dental health in scarborough malton bridlington

As pancake day approaches, spare a thought for your teeth and oral hygiene before tucking in to your sweet treats!

Pancake day is often seen as a day of indulgence, before giving up something for lent. So why not spare a thought for your teeth and oral hygiene, before indulging on those sweet delights.

Wondering which toppings are best for you and your teeth? Here is some food for thought and alternative topping ideas for you;

Lemon and Sugar

The nation’s favourite topping seems to be lemon and sugar. However, unfortunately it is also the most harmful choice to make for your teeth. Lemon is highly acidic and will erode the enamel of your teeth. Adding that to its partner in crime being sugar, which is the key culprit for causing that dreaded tooth decay, you are setting your teeth up for two attacks in one! A good alternative would be some fruit and a sprinkle of cinnamon… and also just as yummy.


Being another popular topping honey and syrups are also full of sugar… and very very sticky, meaning it can be more difficult to remove from your teeth! Why not swap these for a high protein butter or a peanut butter.

Ice cream

We all love to add a dollop of ice cream on top of our pancakes, so why not swap this for a natural greek yoghurt. Making this small swap could half your sugar intake by at least half!

Nutella/Chocolate Spread

Nutella and chocolate spread are another popular choice. They may seem a good choice, with the high dairy content, but did you know that half a jar of nutella is just pure sugar?? Infact, at 56% sugar it is one of the worst toppings you could choose for your pancakes. Try swapping these chocolate spreads for a raw cacao to still get your chocolate fix. Or even a sugar free, high protein chocolate spread.

Alternatively, you could try topping your pancakes with savoury instead. Such as ham, cheese, spinach or vegetables like peppers or mushrooms. Any meats or cheeses would work. And not only would they be kinder on your teeth, they most certainly will contain less calories.

If you struggle to resist the sugary toppings, try to limit how many pancakes you eat and always wait an hour after consuming them before giving your teeth a thorough brush. If you brush your teeth too soon after eating something sweet and sugary, you could damage your enamel further. Remember your enamel will already have been softened by the sugar attacks and the acid from your toppings. So be sure to leave the correct amount of time between eating and brushing.

5 Things Every Parent Should Know About Baby Teeth

As your baby’s first teeth start to appear, it can be very exciting. With so many changes at this age, it can be easy to forget about the importance of their oral hygiene.

1. Start Brushing As Soon As The First Tooth Appears

Decay can begin as soon as your child’s first tooth appears so it is important to implement an oral hygiene routine early on. You should brush their teeth twice a day, and continue to do so until you are confident that they can do it themselves.

2. First Dental Visit

It is important that you take your child to see the dentist when their first tooth appears. Their dentist will be able to advise you on the best oral hygiene routine to follow and to provide any necessary treatment.

3. Baby Teeth Are More Sensitive To Decay

Baby teeth have a thinner layer of enamel, making them more susceptible to decay. A fluoride toothpaste will help to protect their teeth.

4. Be Careful With Dummies

It is common for babies to suck their thumb or use a dummy but prolonged use can change the position of their teeth. This can make it hard for them to chew and speak and can cause adult teeth to be in the wrong position too. Dummies should be removed by the age of three to prevent any oral damage.

5. Baby Teeth Are Just As Important As Adult Teeth

As baby teeth aren’t permanent, many parents don’t understand the importance of their maintenance. Baby teeth affect the development, alignment, and position of their adult teeth as well as their speech and eating abilities.

How Can I Protect my Teeth From Sugar?

Eating large amounts of sugar is bad for your health, and can result in obesity, heart disease, diabetes and tooth decay. The coating that covers your teeth is called plaque and it contains lots of bacteria that breakdown the sugar in your food into acid, damaging the hard, protective coating on your teeth called enamel.

Here are five ways to help protect your teeth:

Limit Your Sugar Intake

This seems like the most obvious option, but switching out sugary foods in your diet for healthier ones, such as swapping out a slice of cake everyday for a bowl of yoghurt with fruit, can make a big difference. Other changes could include cutting out that teaspoon of sugar in your cup of tea or having a glass of water at meal times instead of a fizzy drink.

However, there will be times when you fancy a treat! To help protect your teeth, try to eat the sugary snack at mealtimes to reduce the number or acid attacks on your teeth.

Drink Through Paper Straws

When you are drinking sugary drinks, such as fruit juices and fizzy drinks, try to use a straw to limit the contact between the sugar and your teeth.

Keep On Top of Your Oral Health

Make sure you keep up with your oral health routine. Brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes and floss to reduce the amount of bacteria in your mouth. However, do not brush your teeth straight after eating as this can cause more damage by brushing acid into your teeth.

Chew Sugar-Free Gum After Eating

Saliva helps to defend against acids causing demineralisation. Chewing gum helps to stimulate your salivary glands to produce more saliva. However, make sure that the gum is sugar-free, otherwise it could be causing more harm than good.

Visit Your Dentist For Regular Check Ups

Your dentist will be able to spot the signs of decay before they worsen and provide any advice to improve your oral hygiene routine. Call us on 01723 670500 to book your appointment now!

How To Care For Your Teething Baby

Teething is an inevitable part of your baby’s growth, but that doesn’t make it any easier to watch them struggle as the first few teeth come through. Most babies begin teething somewhere between 4 and 7 months. However, this can vary to earlier or later than this window.


Along with difficulty sleeping, teething symptoms can include:

  • Chewing
  • Irritability/fussiness
  • Excessive drooling

If your baby is experiencing a rash or fever, there may be something other than teething causing the problem, in which case you should contact your child’s doctor.

Chilled Teething Ring

A teething ring is a great option when your child starts to chew things. Some can even be chilled for more relief. Never put a teething ring in the freezer as this can damage your baby’s soft gums. Don’t forget to clean and sterilise the ring regularly.

Use A Crunchy Healthy Treat

Once your child has been introduced to solid foods, try to soothe their gums using raw carrot or apple sticks. Even breadsticks could help relieve their symptoms.

Avoid sugary snacks which can quickly lead to tooth decay, even if they currently have very few teeth. Rusks and teething biscuits should be avoided too as they contain sugar.

Massage Your Baby’s Gums

Make sure your hands are clean before you put them in your baby’s mouth. Use your fingers to apply gentle pressure. Sometimes this simple action of rubbing their gums will be able to provide your baby some relief.

Offer Them A Drink Of Cold Water

If your baby has already started drinking plain water, it could offer them comfort. It is one of the most natural teething remedies.

Wipe Away Any Dribble

One of the signs of teething is the constant dribbling. This could result in an uncomfortable rash around your baby’s mouth. Gently wipe it away to prevent any further discomfort.

Distract Your Baby

Try taking your child’s mind off their pain by singing or encouraging them to play their favourite games.

Caring For Your Baby’s New Teeth

Once your child’s teeth start to come through, you’ll need to register them with a dentist. Contact us on 01723 670500 to book their first appointment.

Start brushing with a fluoride toothpaste as soon as their first tooth breaks through.
