Dental Treatments

We offer a variety of dental treatments to keep your mouth healthy and beautiful.

General Dentistry

Fillings– Fillings are used to replace tooth structure that has been lost, either through decay or trauma. From traditional metal to the latest in white filling technology. We provide a variety of options that suits your budget and requirements.

Inlays– If a tooth requires a large filling we may decide to fit a filling constructed by one of our laboratory technicians. This is to provide superior strength or aesthetics.

Crowns and Bridges– Crowns or “caps” are used to strengthen and restore a broken down tooth. They can be made so that they are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. The procedure involves trimming a tooth down, then taking a mould of your teeth so that our lab can make a cap which fits over the top of your tooth. A bridge is a false tooth that we stick to a natural tooth next to it. This is a great option if you have lost a tooth through injury or decay!

Root Canal Treatment– Sometimes if a tooth is severely broken or decayed it may become infected. If there is enough healthy tooth left we can treat the tooth by removing the nerve of the tooth and then placing a rubber filling. We then may decide to put a crown on top of the tooth to strengthen it further.

Dentures– These are false teeth that can be removed. These are normally a good, more cost effective option for someone who has lost a few or all of their teeth. They can be made out of plastic, metal or a combination.

Periodontal (Gum Disease and Bad Breath) therapy– Gum disease can cause your teeth to become loose and eventually be lost. We can help to try and prevent this from occurring by cleaning the mouth thoroughly also giving you the advice you need to maintain a healthy mouth at home. Please also ask your dentist also about combating bad breath.

During routine examination we look for any abnormalities including oral cancer as well.

Cosmetic Dentistry

If you are not happy with the appearance of your smile we can help you in a variety of ways to improve it!

White fillings/crowns– We can remove unsightly silver, mercury and gold fillings and crowns and replace them with white porcelain alternatives which are indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
Mercury Free
Veneers– These are thin shells of porcelain that can be placed over your natural teeth to completely transform a tired looking smile to a dazzling, youthful one. And the best thing is, little to no drilling is usually required! You will be assessed for suitability for the restorations first.

Teeth whitening– This can be performed in the comfort of your own home. Specially made trays are placed over your teeth and a thin solution of whitening agent is applied. A simple and cost effective way to improve the appearance of all of your teeth at once.

Before Afteer

Implants– Dental implants are small “posts” usually made out of titanium that are inserted into your gums. They can then be used to place a brand new tooth or support a well-fitting denture. Implants can be the most natural replacement for missing teeth and the procedure is simple, normally requiring only a local anaesthetic. For more information please contact the surgery to book an appointment with our implantologist.A complete and comprehensive assessment shall be done prior to deciding whether an implant will be suitable or not.

Hygienist:

Our dental hygienist is specially trained to work as part of the team and is primarily concerned with maintaining good oral health and treatment and prevention of gum disease and bad breath.  She works Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturday mornings.

Our hygienist works with the dentist to draw up a suitable cleaning regime which suites you. She will clean your teeth and educate you in how to best care for your teeth and gums effectively, and the effects of diet on oral health.

Regular professional cleaning to remove plaque and tartar and staining, combined with looking after your teeth and gums properly at home will help keep your mouth healthy. A clean and healthy mouth will improve your appearance and give you fresh breath.

Our hygienist will carefully remove hard deposits of calculus (tartar) that builds up on teeth and teach you how to prevent it coming back. This will do a lot to slow the progression of gum disease.

Where deposits of calculus lie deep in the gums and may cause discomfort during removal, you may be advised to have anaesthesia for certain areas.

Our hygienist will talk to you about your diet and recommend other preventive measures and routines to battle gum disease.

In cases where we feel gum disease is advanced or response to treatment is not very effective, your hygienist will again liaise with your dentist to provide an appropriate referral to a specialist.

Hygiene appointments are 30 minutes each. In cases where there is need of very extensive cleaning, you may be advised to have more than one visit.

The cost for an appointment is £49 per 30 minutes

A non-refundable deposit £20  must be paid prior to booking the appointment. (This is non-negotiable).
