What We Offer
(First Consultation & X-Rays £60)
A dental visit shows how healthy your mouth is. After the visit, you and your dentist can discuss the results and plan the best way to deal with any problems.
A veneer is a thin layer of tooth-coloured material that is put onto the front of the tooth to make it look better. This is done because the tooth might have been damaged by decay or an accident, or might be badly discoloured for some reason.
Veneers are usually made out of porcelain by a dental technician. You will have to visit the dentist more than once for this type of veneer.
A removable denture replaces missing teeth. ‘Partial’ dentures replace a few missing teeth and ‘full’ or ‘complete’ dentures are needed if all the natural teeth are missing.
Complete dentures are best made of acrylic (plastic). Partial dentures can also be made wholly of acrylic. Alternatively, they can consist of acrylic teeth on a light metal alloy base: this type of partial denture is more secure and less bulky, but also more expensive.
Scale and Polish
(All your teeth will be cleaned)
Tartar (also known as ‘calculus’), formed by hardened plaque, helps plaque to gather and makes it harder to remove when you brush.
You can’t remove tartar just by brushing your teeth, but a dentist or hygienist can remove it using special instruments — this is known as scaling.
A dentist or hygienist can also polish your teeth. This removes stains from coffee, tea, cigarettes or red wine; and it makes it more difficult for plaque to stick to your teeth.
If you clean your teeth very thoroughly at home, your scale and polish treatment will take less time.
Like hair and skin, teeth vary in colour. Some are yellower or darker than others, even when they are quite healthy. Teeth tend to get darker as people get older. Teeth sometimes become darker if their roots have been damaged or diseased and the ‘nerve’ has ‘died’. Tooth colour can be very effectively lightened with Hydrogen Peroxide, used on either the outside or the inside of the tooth. This is completely safe as long as it does not touch your gums. Dentists use a special jelly bleach.
(Tooth coloured, without mercury)
A filling replaces part of a tooth that has been lost because of decay or through accidental damage.
You may hear us talk about ‘composite’, ‘glass ionomer’ and ‘compomer’ — these are different types of white filling.
