From preventative care to tooth replacement: we offer the entire range of modern dentistry services to keep your teeth healthy and beautiful throughout your life. Here's a quick look at the types of treatments we provide.
Six month smile is a quick, discreet alternative to conventional braces. If you want straighter front teeth quickly then this could be the treatment for you.
Average treatment times are only 6 months using conventional orthodontic techniques but using modern materials to provide an effective, cosmetic solution that fits your lifestyle.
So what are Six Month Smiles?
Unlike conventional braces they utilise clear brackets and white wires.
They are not completely invisble but are far more discreet than conventional 'metal' braces.
As with any teeth-straightening treatment you will need to wear retainers to maintain the new straight position of your front teeth.
You will be provided with fixed and removable retainers as part of your treatment at no extra cost.
FREE TOOTH WHITENING PROVIDED at the end of treatment is included.
Most adults with crooked or spaced teeth are suitable for treatment as long as you're not looking for major changes to your bite.
Phone or email the practice for your FREE consultation to find out more about' 6 month smiles'.

When mercury-containing amalgam fillings are removed for clinical reasons they are routinely replaced with tooth coloured composite material which not only look so much better but provide more strength to the remaining tooth. They look so good people often ask me to replace their old grey fillings anyway!
Old NHS crowns and bridges can look dull and lifeless and often show an ugly grey line at the gum margin as you can see on the picture on the left.
Replacing them with LAVA crowns which are metal free can dramatically improve the appearance. This is a simple procedure over 2 appoitments in only 2 weeks.
Lumineers are a very thin porcelain facing system from America that are bonded onto the front of your teeth to transform your smile. The main advantage of this system is that in the vast majority of cases your teeth don't have to be filed down first. NO DRILLS, NO INJECTIONS.
A mould is taken of your teeth, sent to California for construction and then sent back to me in 3 weeks for fitting.
