with oral hygiene at Meon Dental Practice Petersfield

Oral health and hygiene are key at Meon Dental in Petersfield

A visit to the hygienist at our Petersfield dental practice Meon Dental isn’t just about getting your teeth cleaned!  It’s a fantastic opportunity to confirm with a dental professional that the cleaning and hygiene regime you are following at home is being as effective as it should be, and also iron out any problems you may be having with flossing or such like.

Missing hygiene visits can lead to periodontal disease (gum disease) where your gums bleed and recede, leading to tooth loss. Not to mention bad breath!

The hygienists at our friendly family practice in Petersfield are also here to help you through the minefield of home dental health products available today.  If you’re struggling with flossing they’ll show you the easiest method or direct you towards another inter-dental product which may be easier for you to use.  They also often have sample product they can give, so you can see if they are for you before purchasing them.

Dental Veneers at Meon Dental in Petersfield


Your smile is the first thing someone will notice about you so even the smallest imperfection in your smile can make you feel self-conscious or embarrassed.  At Meon Dental in Petersfield we offer the very latest in cosmetic dentistry – all designed to enhance your natural beauty, and boost your confidence!

Dental Veneers are an ideal solution to a chipped tooth or discoloured tooth, which might be making you feel unhappy with your smile.  The veneer, a thin porcelain cover, is applied on to the front of the tooth and then fixed in to place. The veneer is colour matched to your tooth so that it will blend in and be un-noticeable. 

All people will notice is how much more you’re smiling!

Tooth Whitening at Meon Dental in Petersfield Hampshire












You know that moment when you need all the confidence and self-esteem you can muster?  The moment of a first date, job interview or big birthday and you’re wearing your best outfit, done your hair and spent a fortune of personal hygiene products…..have you missed anything? What about your smile?

Chances are you’ve brushed your teeth, you may have even flossed but have you really put as much effort in to your smile as your should have?  It’s probably the first thing someone will notice about you and the thing they’ll also probably remember about you so it is definitely something you should invest both time and money into.

At Meon Dental, a cosmetic dental practice in the centre of Petersfield in Hampshire, we offer the solution to a stained or dull smile – tooth whitening.  With in practice and at home solutions there really is something to suit everyone and no reason to live with a smile you’re not 100% proud of and happy to show off!

with fillings from Meon Dental in Petersfield

White Fillings at Meon Dental, a dental practice in Petersfield Hampshire


If you had to have fillings placed a few years ago then chances are that they are metal (silver) amalgam fillings.  Because they are metal, they are noticeable and some people can feel less confident about smiling because of them.

Fillings were never designed to last a life time and so eventually you might find they need replacing.  When the time comes, why not ask if they can be replaced with natural white (tooth-coloured) fillings instead?

At Meon Dental Practice in the heart of Petersfield in Hampshire, we regularly replace these ugly metal fillings with tooth coloured restorations which are designed to blend in with your natural tooth colour.

Most people will not even be able to notice them (unless they’re having a good look in your mouth!) so they’ll be no confidence issues anymore.

See our website for more details and feel free to give us a call if you’d like further information – 01730 265555

Dental Sedation at Meon Dental Petersfield Hampshire

with the help of Meon Dental in Petersfield Hampshire










Are you on of the thousands of people who have been avoiding the dentist because of fear.  Are you living with an unattractive smile or dental pain because you are so afraid of sitting in that dentists chair?

If you are one of those unfortunate people who suffer with an irrational fear of the dentist then seeking help when there are dental problems can be stressful and upsetting.  Once the pain is already there often the damage is done so any work carried out by the dentist is usually time consuming and occasionally painful, none of which helps towards elevating those fears.

Dental Sedation from our Petersfield dental practice might be the solution for those nervous patients.
