Our aim is always to carry out the least amount of dental work needed to ensure long-term, sustainable dental health with the least amount of stress and disruption to our patient’s lives. We do not recommend any procedures unless strictly necessary.
In addition to general dentistry, we cover all major specialisms, including:
A tooth restoration is any artificial substance or structure that replaces a missing tooth or part of a tooth to restore and protect the mouth’s ability to eat, chew, and speak. Types of restoration include:
- Fillings and inlays
Fillings and inlays are an indirect restoration, consisting of a solid substance such as gold, porcelain or less often a cured composite resin, which is fitted to a cavity in a tooth and cemented into place.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth. It covers the tooth and restores its shape, size and strength, and also improves its appearance. The crown, when cemented into place, fully encases the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.
A bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth, or several teeth, by permanently joining an artificial tooth to either adjacent teeth or dental implants.
- Partial or complete dentures
These are either partial or complete sets of artificial, removable teeth for either the upper or lower jaw, or both as required.
Root canal treatment
Root canal treatment, or RCT, involves the removal of the pulp/nerve and any infection (abscess) from the roots of the tooth, which may then be filled or crowned. An RCT may be carried out when there is nerve pain or an abscess and is a good option for retaining your natural tooth, which – whenever possible – is always preferable to extraction and replacement.
Orthodontic treatment is more commonly known as braces and is suitable for both adults and children. Braces are used to straighten the teeth and improve the ‘arch’ (how your teeth are arranged) but vitally, create the conditions for excellent lifelong dental health. After orthodontic treatment, teeth not only look amazing but are easier to look after, meaning fewer problems later in life.
Tooth whitening is easier than you might think, and with our take-home kits, you don’t spend ages in the chair. This cost-effective, professional treatment involves the creation of ‘trays’ – exact moulds of your teeth that are easy to put in and painless to wear. Simply add the gel to the trays and wear them in your mouth as instructed by your dentist. The effect is gradual and builds up, so you can control exactly the look you want. Believe it or not, brilliant white teeth tend not to be best for most people – the trick is to get the shade that’s right for you, something that’s possible with our professional whitening treatment.
If required, our specialists can also undertake more complex surgical work to repair more extensive damage or deterioration. This can include the complete reorganisation or total rebuild of a patient’s mouth.
