Anxious about seeing a dentist - we’ll do everything we can to make your visit pain and anxiety free so that your oral health is not compromised.
If a tooth has been broken or damaged by decay, your dentist will try to fix it with a filling, crown or other dental treatment. However, if there's too much damage for the tooth to be repaired, the tooth may need to be extracted (removed).
We custom-make mouth guards to fit your mouth accurately. They are comfortable to wear and give your teeth maximum protection from injury.
Dentures are custom-made replacements for missing teeth and can be taken out and put back into your mouth. While dentures take some getting used to, and will never feel exactly the same as natural teeth, today's dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever.
We can give you back your youthful white smile using a whitening gel called Carbamide Peroxide. This is not harmful to the teeth or your body and can whiten your teeth by at least two shades.
A root canal is necessary when the nerve of a tooth has been damaged or infected and is often the only alternative to having the tooth extracted.
An implant is a titanium screw that is surgically placed within the jaw so that a crown, bridge or denture can be attached to it. They can be used to replace one tooth, several teeth or all of your teeth.
A veneer is a wafer-thin laminate of tooth coloured porcelain (or sometimes composite), that is bonded on the surface of a tooth to improve its shape or colour. (Similar concept to a false finger nail).
When appearance is important, we can offer treatment options using a variety of modern white bonded composite or glass ionomer filling materials. If cost and strength are more important than appearance then dental amalgam may be used. When normal filling materials are not suitable then we can recommend alternative restoration treatments, such as porcelain, gold or a combination of porcelain fused
Missing teeth can be replaced using a ‘bridge.’ The teeth on either side of the space are prepared as for a crown and the missing teeth are replaced by tooth-shaped crowns, joined together and bonded or cemented to the adjacent teeth.
A crown is a cap or covering that either fully or partially covers the tooth to improve its appearance or strength. Crowns are made from porcelain, a blend of porcelain and metal, or of gold.
