Whitening is a straightforward way to improve the look of your teeth. We recommend home whitening. At the practice we create custom made trays that fit well and easily around your teeth so that the whitening can be carried out straightforwardly at home.
Before whitening and the prescription of the bleaching gel, we assess your suitability and discuss the possible results of the treatment. We record the shade (colour) of your teeth before we start and give you an idea of the colour that might be achieved.
We demonstrate the use of the gel and make sure that you are happy with the procedure before you leave the practice.
A review appointment is made to check your progress.

A veneer is a wafer thin layer of ceramic that covers the front of your tooth to improve its colour, shape and appearance.
This is a wonderful way to treat cracked and chipped teeth. It also lets us close some gaps and reshape teeth.
Colour matched composite is used to mould and reshape your teeth. This is a great treatment that doesn’t need to remove any tooth material. It can often be completed in one visit.
Crowns are a great way to restore teeth that are broken or weakened by decay, a big filling or trauma.
Our dentist prepares your tooth and then a ceramic crown is fitted (made by one of our very capable dental technicians). You will have a temporary acrylic crown between preparing the tooth and filling the ceramic crown. We are able to choose from a very wide range of shades and can colour the crown to match your surrounding teeth.
