Our dental treatments

Periodic check-ups

At a periodic check-up we examine your teeth and gums. In this way we can discover dental problems in time. We also clean and polish your teeth.

More information on periodic check-ups

Dental hygiene

Make an appointment with one of our dental hygienists. We can provide this treatment even if you are not registered at our dental practice.

Teeth whitening

Have your discoloured teeth whitened at a professional dental practice in Amsterdam West. Smoking and colouring agents in food and drink can stain your teeth.

A veneer is a porcelain or composite shell that we can place over your own teeth when they are chipped or if you have a lot of space between your teeth.

More information on veneers

Root canal treatment

Root canal treatment involves removing the infected dental tissue from your root canal system. An infection can occur due to bacteria or a damaged filling.

Child dentistry

Most dental cavities form between the ages of 4 and 21. This is why we pay special attention to dental check-ups in children.

Implant-retained dentures

An implant-retained denture is a denture that snaps into place on the implants in your jawbone. Your denture will be more firmly attached and eating will be easier.

Crowns and bridges

We use a crown to replace a damaged tooth. A bridge is very appropriate if more than one tooth is missing.

Traditional dentures

Our experienced team specializes in crafting dentures and dental prostheses, maximizing comfort and a natural appearance.

”Previous experiences with various dentists were not pleasant. What a relief to have found this practice. The dentists take the time they need, work carefully and give clear information about costs. The best dental practice in Amsterdam West.“

New patients

Our dental practice in Amsterdam West does not have a waiting list for accepting new patients. You can schedule your first consultation as soon as you complete our registration form. At this initial appointment you will meet your new dentist and become acquainted with the way we work at the practice. We will examine your mouth in order to determine the condition of your teeth and we will discuss your wishes. Because of this, the first appointment takes longer on average than the periodic dental check-ups.
Register as a new patient

Urgent dental treatment

We can always provide urgent dental treatment during opening hours. Contact our emergency dentist if you have any problems after a dental treatment or if you experience severe acute pain. If you have any doubts as to whether your complaints require urgent treatment, call us to discuss the problem with one of our assistants.
