White Fillings
Tooth Whitening


We provide a full range of treatments both under the National Health Service and privately.
Our philosophy is to provide the least amount of treatment you need for a healthy oral environment, and we believe prevention is always the best solution. We never propose to carry out unnecessary treatment, and in fact on many occasions we may advise you against something, irregardless of the cost, if we think its going to be harmful to you.
All available options will be discussed with you, including the relevant risks and benefits, and the total cost, so there won't be any nasty surprises at the end.

We routinely screen for decay, gum disease and oral cancer, all of which are usually completely painless until a late stage. This is one of the reasons why it's important to have regular check-ups as advised by your dentist. Some people need check-ups more regularly than others, depending on the condition of their teeth and gums, and also their habits such as diet, smoking and alcohol intake.

Your dentist may advise you to also see the hygienist out our practice on a regular basis. This is mainly for the prevention and maintanance of gum (periodontal) disease, which is one of the conditions that may go undiagnosed for many years before you notice any symptoms. It is also used to increase your awareness about the importance of oral hygiene and different methods of cleaning.
A typical appointment will usually consist of a thorough clean (scale and polish), followed more importantly by extensive oral hygiene instructions, and checking whether you are following the correct cleaning technique and routines.
