Regular Check-Ups

Regular check-ups and dental hygiene treatments are essential to maintain the health of the teeth and gums. Our aim is to help you keep your teeth for life with comfortable treatment and long lasting results. Regular check ups and cleaning appointments are recommended to ensure your mouth remains healthy.

At your initial consultation and check up we will discuss any problems you may have and will advise you on the condition of your mouth and help devise a suitable treatment plan for you.

At your dental examinations we will be :

Checking for tooth decay

Checking for gum disease

Assessing your oral hygiene

Checking your jaw joints

Checking for oral cancer

If required we will take X-rays to check your teeth and the bone levels surrounding your teeth.

Before and After Photos

Internal external bleaching of non-vital tooth with an existing root canal treatment. This upper left central had been stained for years and this patient did not like to smile. This minimally invasive procedure and addition of composite to the fractured edges brought his smile back.

This lady had some failing veneers on her upper teeth and was very self conscious about her smile. I removed all of the old restorations and placed a combination of crowns and veneers on her top teeth. We whitened all of her teeth and I replaced the silver fillings in her lower jaw.
