  • Cosmetic Dentistry

    The health of your smile is important to us, but we also understand that its appearance is of great importance too.

    Porcelain Crowns

    White Porcelain crowns direct from our laboratory

    Dental crowns can be made from a range of materials, from gold to metal alloy, but the majority are a mix of metal with a porcelain shell. Once it has been decided that crowns are your best option your dentist will clean the tooth, removing any decay while reshaping it with a burr to prepare it for the crown. Once this preparation is completed an impression of your tooth will be made and sent to a dental lab to create a crown, which will be bespoke and fit your tooth perfectly.

    Composite White Fillings

    Using the latest material from Venus white composite

    This glass, ceramic and resin mixture is used mainly in anterior (front) teeth due to the variety of tooth-coloured shades available.

    Extensive Hygiene and Stain Removal

    Advanced stain removal

    Dental hygiene is your home defence against tooth decay and gum disease. Establishing a regular dental care routine and making it a habit can give you a life of good dental health.



    Tooth Grinding

    Bruxism is a disorder affecting as much as 80% of the population at some point in their lives. Known from a Greek word meaning “gnashing of teeth”, Bruxism covers tooth grinding and jaw-muscle clenching that can cause teeth to break or become worn, cause headaches or even migraines.

    A smile can change everything

    Your confidence. Your outlook. Your life. And with Invisalign, achieving the smile you always dreamed of doesn’t have to be a big deal. In fact, it barely has to impact your day-to-day life at all.


    Invisalign straightens teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made specifically for your teeth. As you replace each aligner every two weeks, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week, gradually moving towards the projected final position.


    Comfortable, clear and removable – Invisalign transforms your smile without disrupting your life. Something that over 2.5 million people worldwide have already discovered.
