It is important to replace or fill a gap left by missing teeth if at all possible. It not only helps boost confidence by creating a great looking smile, it also serves an important clinical need. A bridge is used to fill the space left by missing teeth, restoring your smile. We will be happy to help you choose the best method to replace any missing teeth you may have.
Porcelain veneers can help correct the colour, shape or position of your teeth to help give you confidence in your smile. Porcelain veneers are thin porcelain shells that are directly bonded to the front surfaces of the teeth. We match the veneers precisely to the colour and size of your natural, existing teeth in order to construct a smile that looks as natural as possible.
Dentures or partial dentures replace missing teeth where a bridge or implant is not suitable. We recommend Valplast® flexible dentures. These dentures are made from a flexible material which adapts to slight changes in the shape of your mouth (e.g. when eating) so they are comfortable to wear and are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. We also offer a 24hr denture repair service for traditional dentures.
Teeth straightening, known within dentistry as Orthodontics, traditionally used metal brackets and wires to straighten teeth.For patients wanting to achieve a straighter smile, we recommend either Smilelign or Invisalign, invisible orthodontic aligner systems that use the latest technology on the UK dental market. Smilelign and Invisalign clear braces are practically invisible, so people won’t even know you’re having your teeth straightened.
For patients wanting to achieve a whiter, brighter smile, we offer two treatment options. Our in-clinic whitening treatment involves the use of both a lamp and high quality hydrogen peroxide bleaching gel to give you noticeably, whiter teeth by up to 6 shades. Our at home whitening treatment offers a flexible solution which will fit in with any schedule. Following an initial consultation, you will receive customised trays to take home, so you can whiten your teeth at your own convenience.
We believe prevention is always better than cure, and will help you to look after your teeth so you do not develop tooth decay in the first place. However, if you do have decay and need a filling, our white ‘tooth coloured’ fillings are both an aesthetic and functional solution. As well as looking better and more natural looking, composite and porcelain fillings bond to the tooth and can withstand the forces in your mouth when you bite and chew and so greatly improve the strength of teeth.
root canal treatment
We have invested in the very latest technology to make your root canal treatment as quick and comfortable as possible. Root canal treatment is necessary when the nerve in a tooth has died and needs to be removed to avoid infection. Root canal treated teeth will usually need to be subsequently strengthened with a crown.
We can make customised mouth guards for anyone who wants to protect their teeth when playing sports or if you grind your teeth while you’re asleep, we may recommend you wear a mouth guard at night. These even out the pressure across your jaw and create a physical barrier between your upper and lower teeth to protect them from further damage.
