We provide many exciting services that will leave you with a bright, white smile on your face!
Regular dental checkups are essential for maintaining good oral and dental hygiene and health. Routine dental exams prevent dental problems happening ahead of time.
During a routine exam your dentist will:
Evaluate your overall health and oral hygiene
Take a full dental base chart of your teeth
Assess your need for tooth restoration or tooth replacement
Check your bite and jaw for problems
Take dental x-rays or, if necessary, do other diagnostic procedures
Create a treatment plan listing any treatments required and costs involved
We provide dental hygiene appointments with our experienced dental hygienists to fully clean your teeth and gums and advice on your daily dental hygiene routine. Our dental hygiene appointments provide:
Dental hygiene examination to look for any inflammation, bleeding and plaque or calculus build up.
Scaling & polishing to remove all plaque and calculus with a variety of the latest equipment including the latest air polishing which fires a jet of air, water and sodium bicarbonate at your teeth to remove debris and polish the surface.
Daily dental hygiene advice and routine to ensure you can maintain those areas visibly accessible on a day to day basis in between dental hygiene appointments and ensure long term problems caused by poor dental hygiene remain at bay.
Our dental hygienists can help with halitosis treatment too at our clinic, this can be a common result of poor dental hygiene.
White fillings ( Composite) resins are matched to be the same color as your teeth and therefore used where a natural appearance is desired. The ingredients are mixed and placed directly into the cavity where they set. White fillings are available in different shades which allows the dentist to match the filling to the colour of your teeth. They can also be used to replace existing amalgam fillings.
An Inlay or Onlay is a porcelain restoration (either part or full) bonded into place to give extra protection in comparison to fillings.
Inlays and Onlays are custom made in lab to fit into or over the tooth. They are used when there is insufficient tooth structure to support a directly placed filling.
Veneers are thin layers of porcelain that cover the front surface of the tooth after it has been prepared. Sometimes a natural colour ‘composite’ material is used instead of porcelain.
Because they are very thin very little preparation of the tooth is required.
The use of veneers on multiple front teeth has become known as a “Smile Makeover” – a treatment made popular thanks to celebrities and appearances on makeover television shows.
They are an effective cosmetic treatment that can be used to address a number of problems, including gaps between the teeth, worn, chipped and stained teeth. In the past veneers were used to mask crooked teeth but now we encourage patients to consider orthodontics to align poorly positioned teeth.
The aim is to create a beautiful, natural smile .
LUMINEERS VENEERS is unique in that it is contact lens-thin and super translucent. Traditional veneers are fused or bonded to teeth, and generally your dentist will need to grind down the tooth for a good fit. Since LUMINEERS is so thin, little to no tooth reduction is necessary depending on the improvement needed. Within two visits to us, Lumineers Veneers can painlessly reshape, straighten, and whiten your smile. Lumineers Veneers are porcelain shells that are bonded directly onto the front of the teeth without any of the preliminary grinding or shaving that many varieties of porcelain veneers require. The brand new smile that Lumineers Veneers can last 15 years or longer.
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’ and most likely to be made of porcelain to resemble the shape and colour of the tooth.
Crowns are an ideal way to repair teeth that have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. A crown could be used for a number of other reasons, you may have a discoloured filling and would like to improve the appearance of the tooth. You may have had a root filling and need a crown to protect what is left of the tooth. It may help to hold a bridge or denture firmly in place.
Bridge is the dental art to replace one missing tooth or more with a fixed appliance attached to the adjacent tooth or more. It’s more common to be made of porcelain to match the colour of the adjacent teeth.
Bridge can be:
Bridges that involve preparing adjacent teeth to the gap to hold crowns .
Maryland Bridge involve minimal preparation of the adjacent teeth, Causing less damage to these teeth.
Denture is a removable appliance to replace one or more missing teeth, dentures can be :
A full or complete denture is a removable appliance used when the patient has lost all his teeth in one or both arches.
Partial Dentures are removable appliance used to replace one or more teeth .
A brighter whiter smile goes a long way in boosting your confidence and self esteem. Your dentist will discuss which type of tooth whitening will work best for your teeth.
This involves taking moulds of your teeth and making customised trays. You wear these trays with whitening material provided by your dentist at home . Results are normally seen after 7 days.
This involves the application of high concentration whitening material on the patient teeth in the dental chair, using the Zoom light to accelerate the whitening process, after few application on the same visit, you will see the result of the whitening procedure immediately.
An implant is used to replace missing teeth. An implant consists of a post which is inserted into the gums and an artificial tooth which attaches to the post.
Dental Implants are the modern way to replace missing teeth. They are durable, long lasting and made to appear as if they emerge naturally from the gum. Implants have the longest life and best success rate of any dental treatment.
A dental implant consists mainly of two parts, the ‘screw or post’ acting as the root of the tooth, and the crown. The implant ‘post’ is made of titanium which osseointegrates to the surrounding bone. The crown is then attached to the post.
Nowadays an implant-retained crown is virtually indistinguishable from a natural tooth.
In today’s world where your appearance, self-confidence and even success are closely linked, it pays to have a straight, confident smile. Our teeth straightening service concentrates on achieving harmony between your teeth, face and jaw for long lasting results. Because there are many teeth straightening methods out there, our first step is always to assess which is the right one .
Our teeth straightening service lets you choose between fixed or removable options:
This removable teeth straightening method uses a series of clear removable retainers to straighten your smile. Because these appliances are clear and removable, the teeth straightening process is discreet and therefore very popular with adults.
2. The Inman Aligner
This teeth straightening treatment uses just one removable retainer, making the process much shorter and also cheaper. However, the Inman Aligner teeth straightening method can only be used for the front top and bottom teeth and is slightly more visible than Invisalign.
3. Tooth coloured braces
Teeth straightening with fixed braces uses a more traditional method, but is no longer synonymous with ‘metal mouths’. Our fixed braces contain clear ceramic brackets with white wires so braces are less noticeable ( CFAST).
4. Invisible lingual braces
Fixed and totally invisible, this teeth straightening method is perfect for image-conscious people. Because the braces here are fixed to the inside (back surface) of your teeth, they are completely out of view. This teeth straightening method can however take some time to get used to.
Teeth straightening benefits
There are plenty of benefits to having straighter teeth:
Teeth straightening can dramatically improve the attractiveness of your smile and therefore your confidence. This in turn can increase your social and career success.
Teeth straightening can also improve dental function. By aligning the teeth, the forces exerted on them when you chew, talk or simply move your teeth are balanced, resulting in better long term health of your teeth, gums and jawbone.
Straighter teeth are easier to keep clean, reducing the chance of cavities and gum disease.
We make every effort to provide a relaxed and friendly environment and offer gentle, quality dentistry.
We understand that many people are nervous about receiving dental treatment and nervous patients are most welcome and catered for.
We can provide oral anxiety reducing drugs.
Sedation helps the patient to relax and feel calm before and during treatment .You may feel a little drowsy, but you will not lose consciousness and will still be able to cooperate with the dentist. It can take a little time for the effects to wear off following the use of sedation and so it’s best if you can bring a friend or family member to escort you home.

Cfast (Cosmetically Focused Adult Straight Teeth) braces is a fixed cosmetic orthodontic treatment which is fast,minimally invasive, gentle and simple procedure that corrects alignment issues with the upper and lower front six teeth, and can level and round out the arches, thus satisfying the needs of the vast majority of adult patients who seek correction of misaligned teeth.
Cfast uses clear orthodontic brackets and tooth-coloured nickel-titanium wires. The treatment works much like that using clear aligners, but tooth movement is much more predictable and usually two times faster. This allows teeth movement within months and not years.
The nickel-titanium wires put gentle pressure on the brackets to level and align the teeth with minimal discomfort to the patient. The gums follow this movement to achieve a fully aesthetic outcome.
Zoom whitening is a revolutionary teeth whitening system that can give you the bright white smile you always wanted in just under an hour!
Zoom whitening uses a delicate light activated whitening system to help you lose the years of coffee, tobacco, tea, wine and food pigments worth of tooth discolouration. It is a fast system and often gives up to and more than 10 shades whiter looking teeth.
Zoom! uses a high concentration of pH optimised hydrogen peroxide to give the whitening effect. The whitening ingredients are activated using the Zoom! light source which is shone on your teeth for about 45 minutes in total.
The results of Zoom! are visible to you and others and they will dazzle you directly after the treatment.
