We can permanently replace your missing tooth/teeth with dental implants. A dental implant is an ideal, fixed solution to gaps in your smile.
The titanium screws are placed into the jaw bone to replace single or multiple teeth. A crown, bridge or denture can be fitted to implants to act like a natural tooth. That’s why they’re a superior solution to regular dentures.
We have been providing dental implants for over 20 years now.
No. The procedure is totally painless; this is our promise to you.
Placing a dental implant is much less traumatic than taking a tooth out. It is a high precision surgical procedure.
Our implants success rate is well over 97.5%. This means that dental implants placed in the mouth 20 years ago are still functioning normally.
Each patient's needs will be different but this gives an example of the types of implant we offer:
Single Tooth Implant
Fully Restored (no hidden extras): £2,600.00
Implants Retained Upper Part Denture (on 2 implants)
Implants Retained Lower Part Denture (on 2 implants)
Implants Retained Lower and Upper Full Dentures:
2 Implants Lower Jaw: £5,200.00
4 Implants Upper Jaw: £10,400.00
If you’re a nervous patient, our painless dental care paired with our friendly and supportive staff will help you feel completely at ease. You’ll be left with the teeth you’ve always wanted.
How long fixed brace treatment will take can depend on the following:
How crooked the teeth are. The more complicated the problem, the longer the treatment is likely to take; for example: teeth that have failed to grow into the mouth properly can take up to two years to straighten.
The type of brace. Fixed brace treatment on average will take up to 18 months compared with a removable brace treatment, which typically takes from 6-9 months.
Care of the appliance. Repeated breakages and poor cleaning of the brace will significantly delay treatment time.
As we offer a range of different teeth straightening treatments, there will be a solution to suit you.
Our dentists offer a no obligation consultation to make sure you are provided with the best possible treatment, to discuss the results that you would like and what is achievable.
The fitting of the brace is not painful. You may experience a degree of discomfort, from both the teeth and inside of the cheeks for a few days following the initial placement of the brace and subsequent adjustments.
Once the brace (fixed or removable) has been fitted, visits to the orthodontist at 4-6 week intervals will be needed in order to monitor progress and have the brace adjusted. It is very important to continue regular dental health checks with a dentist to ensure that the teeth and gums remain in the very best condition throughout the treatment.
It is essential to ensure that both the teeth and the brace are kept as clean as possible. The orthodontist, dentist or hygienist will advise about the use of any special toothpastes, brushes or mouth rinses to help keep your mouth as healthy as possible during your orthodontic treatment.
The Invisalign aligner system straightens your teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made specifically for your teeth. As you replace each aligner approximately every week, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week, gradually moving towards the projected final position.
As long as you are over 18 and have a healthy mouth this could be the perfect solution for you. Invisalign can help with a wide range of dental problems, including crossbite, overbite, gapped teeth, open bite, overcrowding and underbite.
If you want to straighten your teeth without interfering with your appearance or your life, Invisalign aligners are incredibly discreet.
The treatment times are usually from around 28 weeks, but Invisalign can take from as little as 12 weeks.

Invisalign may not be suitable in cases of complex orthodontics, such as severely rotated teeth or severe deep overbites.
Yes, you can get Invisalign for £147.92 per month over 24 months (that’s just £4.93 per day).
Our safe teeth whitening system uses gentle products to remove stains and correct discolouration.
The latest scientific research reports that tooth whitening done under the care of a dentist does not damage teeth or gums.
Some people find their teeth are sensitive to cold during or after whitening. Others after effects can be gum discomfort, white patches on the gum line or a sore throat. These symptoms normally go away within a few days.
Everyone's teeth are different, so it varies from person to person. If you smoke or eat and drink strong coloured/staining foods or beverages, the results won't last as long. Your dentist or hygienist will let you know the best ways to keep your teeth whiter for longer.
Gums bleed when they are irritated and inflamed which is not considered normal. This is due to plaque (a soft film of bacteria) being left on the teeth which causes inflammation called gingivitis and if not addressed can develop into gum disease.
There are two different types of gum disease – gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis is the early stage and with developing a good oral hygiene routine, can be reversed. However, if it is left untreated, it turns into periodontitis which is a more serious condition. Periodontitis can be managed to stop it from getting worse.
Conscientious removal of plaque by flossing, brushing and regular professional cleaning will minimise your risk of gum disease.

Your mouth will be examined and you’ll be given advice for moving forward with your treatment.
