Your appointment will be with one of our qualified dentists and includes a full examination of your whole mouth, checking for signs of oral cancer as well as the condition of your teeth and gums. Your teeth will be cleaned using an ultrasonic scaler and polished. We recommend a fluoride treatment to help prevent decay, and bitewing x-rays taken every few years to check for decay within the teeth.

Tooth Coloured Dental Fillings
Decay can create holes or cavities in your teeth, which if left unchecked, can get bigger, and cause infection and pain. A dental filling will often be recommended by your dentist to prevent futher decay. During the procedure, the decayed part of the tooth is removed and filled with a tooth coloured material.
If you wish your teeth to be brighter and whiter, ask us about our teeth whitening service. The dentist will assess your teeth colour and advise you on the sort of results you can expect to see. Impressions of your teeth will be taken at the first appointment, these will be used to create your take home whitening trays. The dentist will show you how to use them correctly with the whitening gel, and will monitor your progress so as to achieve the most desired effect.
Many people grind their teeth while they sleep, which can cause damaged teeth, jawache and headaches. A splint can be constructed that is worn over your teeth at night, protecting them from damage.
