Had a few sessions with Dr Ashkay and couldn’t recommend them highly enough. Completely transformed my smile and my confidence. No longer scared to go to the dentist or smile in social situations. I literally haven’t stopped smiling, thank you Dr Ashkay you truly are talented
Tuba was really helpful in answering all my questions. A very good dental experience.
As a dentist wanting to learn more about composite bonding, I came to shadow one of Dr Akshay’s cases to pick up some tips. I was extremely impressed with his work and the time and precision he put into achieving as perfect a result as possible. Would highly recommend him to any patients considering having bonding treatment.

1st class experience from start to finish. The whole team at Zen Dental were incredibly accommodating. I had composite bonding on 10 teeth and a dental implant/crown (worth checking their Instagram account as the results speak for themselves) Both Dr. Akshay and Dr. Nev were consultative in their approach and provided great advice throughout the process. Their attention to detail was second to none and the finished article exceeded my expectations. Highly recommend and I wouldn't hesitate to refer my friends and family. Thanks again

FreQuently Asked Questions

It is generally recommended to have a dental check-up every six months. 
Regular dental check-ups help in maintaining good oral health, detecting any dental issues early on, and preventing more serious problems from developing. However, the frequency of check-ups may vary depending on your specific dental needs and the recommendations from our dentist.

The frequency of visits to the hygienist can vary depending on your oral health needs. 
In general, it is recommended to visit the hygienist at least once every six months for a routine cleaning and oral hygiene evaluation. However, some individuals may require more frequent visits if they have specific dental issues, such as gum disease or a higher risk of dental problems. 
Our dentist or hygienist will be able to assess your specific needs and recommend the appropriate frequency of visits to the hygienist to maintain optimal oral health.

The lifespan of a composite filling can vary depending on several factors, including the size and location of the filling, your oral hygiene practices, and your eating habits. 
On average, composite fillings can last for about 5 to 10 years. However, with proper care and regular dental check-ups, they can last even longer. It’s important to maintain good oral hygiene and schedule routine dental visits to ensure the longevity of your dental fillings.

Root canal treatment is typically performed under local anesthesia, which numbs the area around the tooth being treated. This means that during the procedure, you should not feel any pain. 
It is worth noting that root canal treatment is aimed at relieving pain caused by an infected or damaged tooth, so the procedure itself should not be a painful experience.

Dental crowns can be designed to closely resemble the appearance of natural teeth, making them blend in well with the surrounding teeth.
Dental crown materials, such as porcelain or ceramic, can be matched to the colour and translucency of your existing teeth, resulting in a natural-looking restoration. The size, shape, and alignment of the crown can also be customized to ensure it fits harmoniously with your smile.
Our dentists will work with you to achieve the most aesthetically pleasing and natural-looking result possible.

Tooth extractions are typically performed under local anesthesia, ensuring that the area around the tooth is numbed and you should not feel pain during the procedure. However, you may experience some pressure or sensations as the dentist removes the tooth. 
If you’re feeling anxious or concerned about discomfort, our dentist can offer additional options such as sedation or general anesthesia to help you relax during the extraction.
