Probably the greatest asset is the ability to smile. How you feel about yourself is important. If your own smile gives you cause for concern, modern dentistry has many new materials and techniques that can create a beautiful smile.
Prevention and early detection is a necessity in avoiding costly and extensive dental treatment. We recommend six monthly checkups in most cases.
Our highly trained dental hygienists are friendly and understanding and we use the latest dental treatments and techniques to promote good oral health and provide effective treatment for gum disease.
Gum disease affects most of us at some point in our lives and can be easily prevented, but it is still the leading cause of adult tooth loss in the UK. We offer intensive cleaning treatments, scaling and polishing and root planning to treat and manage gum disease.
A much more attractive way of repairing a tooth than silver amalgam. There are now many improved materials available that can be matched in colour to the tooth and will bond to the tooth surface. These improvements mean more durable fillings as well as a better appearance.
A crown is an artificial cap which fits over a heavily filled or worn down tooth. It is a technique that allows damaged teeth to be perfectly matched with healthy teeth. The tooth must be prepared first and then the crown is fitted over it to look and feel completely natural.
A bridge is used as a way to fill gaps made by missing teeth and is an alternative to dentures. A bridge consists of a replacement tooth or teeth, attached to crowns on either side of the gap. It is cemented or bonded permanently in place and should be looked after like natural teeth.
Veneers can be used to mask discoloured teeth, mottling or rough enamel, straighten misshapen teeth and to close spaces between front teeth. A veneer is a very thin shell of porcelain and is permanently bonded to the surface of a tooth.
Implants are titanium cylinders inserted into the jaw bone in order to hold a crown in place. An implant can be used to replace single or multiple teeth or to secure or replace dentures.
Root Canal Treatment
Is carried out to treat infection caused by the entry of bacteria into the pulp (nerve and blood supply) of the tooth. It is often the only way to clear infection and save the tooth.
Invisalign® is a discreet way to straighten your teeth, using a series of clear removable teeth aligners. It’s almost completely transparent and a discreet method of teeth straightening.
As we get older, teeth can often become stained and discoloured since teeth can gradually absorb colour from things like coffee, tea, red wine and tobacco. Tooth whitening can return the brightness and remove the staining.
Contact sports such as rugby and hockey increase the chance of damage to teeth. We can supply custom made mouthguards in a choice of colours to protect your teeth.
