Whitening is a process where the tooth discolouration is 'whitened'
to a lighter shade. There are many causes of tooth discolouration,
most commonly highly coloured food ( berries), drinks (coffee, tea,
red wine), smoking and trauma. Whitening removes the staining
through chemical means. Results usually depend on the severity
of the discolouration. It is a safe procedure when carried out
under professional supervision using approved materials. Both live
(vital) teeth and root filled (non vital) teeth can be whitened,
however restorative materials such as amalgam metal fillings,
composite white fills and crowns and veneers can not be whitened.

Custom made trays are made for the patient which are similar to mouthguards but thinner. The gel is placed into the trays that are then worn either overnight or for an hour a day depending on the type of gel used. This process can take between 2-3 weeks to achieve results.
If your front teeth are stained, chipped, or malaligned, veneers will give you a good life-like appearance with minimum tooth adjustment. A veneer is a porcelain facing on the front of your teeth usually your top teeth, it is just like a false finger nail. Veneers are made out of porcelain and are used mainly for aesthetic reasons.
These are tooth coloured fillings. Our dentists can safely replace silver amalgam fillings with white tooth coloured fillings which look more natural.
A crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth.
A crown is sometimes known as a ‘cap’. Crowns are an ideal restoration for teeth that have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling.
They can be made of porcelain or gold or a combination of these materials. A dental crown could be used for a number of other reasons, for instance:
Aesthetic recontouring of your teeth involves small, minimal adjustment of your teeth to reshape and level your smile. By altering the way your teeth reflect the light we can help to camouflage twisted or misshapen teeth without more invasive procedures.
Many people still require dentures and we are able to offer the latest designs at very
All our dentures are custom made by very experienced and registered technicians.
Besides having implants, there are two main ways to replace missing teeth. The first is with a removable false tooth or teeth – a partial denture. The second is with a fixed bridge. A dental bridge is usually used where there are fewer teeth to replace, or when the missing teeth are only on one side of the mouth.
Bridges are usually made of porcelain fused to a precious metal core to give added strength. If no metal is desired then we are able to provide the latest super-strength porcelains.
Root canal treatment (also called endodontics) is needed when the blood or nerve supply of the tooth (known as the pulp) is infected through decay or injury, often causing an abscess.
Many abscessed teeth are needlessly taken out in the UK but at our practices we have the equipment and expertise to save your teeth keeping your mouth healthy and saving you money.
If you play any contact sports it is most important that you protect your mouth by having a custom made professional gumshield
Dental implants are a unique and effective way of replacing missing teeth. They can be used to replace anything from one missing tooth through to a whole arch reconstruction. They can even be used to provide retention for loose dentures!
The treatment is carried out by our experienced implant dentist in a relaxed environment, catering for your specific needs. Treatment can be completed in as little as 3 months in certain cases.
Dental implants provide the most long lasting and least destructive method of
restoring missing teeth compared to dentures and bridgework. They feel the most
natural as well because they support the underlying bone and gum, and dont damage
other teeth unlike other options.

Intravenous sedation involves giving you a small injection of a sedative drug through a plastic tube (cannulae) which is placed into a vein either in your hand or arm. The sedative drug will make you feel relaxed during your treatment.
Intravenous sedation is not the same as general anaesthetic which puts you to sleep. However,many people do not remember anything about their treatment.
Once you are sedated and ready to start treatment you will be given a local anaesthetic injection which will numb the tooth /teeth so you do not feel any discomfort during your treatment.
Intravenous sedation helps you to relax and reduce anxiety caused by dental treatment.
For longer procedures which may be uncomfortable such as extractions or implant placement, sedation can help even if you are not usually anxious about dental treatment.
