Dental Implants

Dental Implants are a reliable way of replacing missing teeth or holding dentures in place in adults of any age.

If you have a gap in your teeth or your denture is loose and you would like to know more about implants, you are welcome to have a chat with Dr Brown. There is no obligation to have an implant placed, but you will be given all the information you require to decide if this is the treatment for you.


We offer a range of filling materials to restore your teeth, depending on the size of the cavity. A composite (white) filling material can be used to restore the majority of teeth. This is available in many different shades to match the natural tooth colour, giving an excellent aesthetic result. For this type of restoration only minimal cavity preparation is required, therefore less tooth material is removed.

Amalgam filling material is still available and is mainly used for large restorations in situations where composite is not suitable. The advantage to this type of filling is the strength and excellent life span. An alternative to amalgam fillings for large restorations are porcelain or gold inlays.

Inlays are made at the laboratory and the treatment is completed in two stages. The first appointment is for preparation of the cavity and impressions, the inlay will be fitted at the second appointment. The advantage is strength, long life span and excellent aesthetics.

Hygiene Therapy

We offer tailor made advice for each individual patient depending on their clinical needs. A basic periodontal assessment is completed and recorded at each dental examination. The information gathered is then used to offer the patient oral hygiene advice on how to look after their teeth and gums at home.

This is reviewed at further appointments and continuously monitored to ensure the gingival condition remains healthy. Our Dental Therapist, Andrea, specializes in all aspects of periodontal treatments from a simple scale and polish to intensive deep scaling of periodontal pockets. Treatments can be completed with local anaesthetic if necessary.


Porcelain veneers are available at the practice. A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that is cemented to the front surface of a tooth. Veneers can be used to improve the colour, shape and position of the teeth. They can be fitted on single or multiple teeth; they are cemented with a bond to hold them in place. The preparation is minimal which means less natural tooth material is removed.

Veneers make the teeth look natural as they can be colour matched to the adjacent teeth to give an excellent aesthetic appearance.


Crowns can be used to restore a tooth that has been badly broken down; this protects as well as strengthens the tooth. The crown can restore the tooth back to the natural shape, allowing the tooth to function correctly.

Crowns are made from various different materials, although the majority are made from porcelain bonded to precious metal. Porcelain gives the appearance of the natural tooth and the metal ensures excellent strength.

Porcelain and all ceramic crowns are available; these types of crowns contain no metal and are mainly used for front teeth.

Gold crowns are also available and are sometimes used for back teeth where appearance is less important. The main advantage of gold in this situation is the strength of the material.

The different types of crowns can be discussed further with the dentist who will recommend the most suitable type for each individual tooth.


A bridge can be used to replace one or two missing teeth. They are made from porcelain and precious metal, similar to crowns. The most common type of bridge is made by preparing the teeth either side of the missing tooth and crowning these teeth. The false tooth is then placed in the middle to replace the missing tooth.

The treatment of veneers, crowns and bridges will be completed in two appointments. The first appointment is for preparation of the tooth, impressions, recording of the shade and fitting of the temporary restoration. At the second appointment the restoration will be fitted.


Tooth whitening is an easy way to improve the appearance of your teeth. It has been clinically tested to be one of the safest methods used to lighten the shade of your teeth. Tooth whitening can make you feel more confident and improve your quality of life.

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, and following discussion with your dentist of the various available options, we can currently offer tooth whitening, which is a safe, painless procedure.


Sedation is ideal for very nervous or anxious patients who may otherwise find dental treatment stressful.

Intravenous sedation induces a state of deep relaxation and a feeling of not being bothered by what’s going on. The drugs used produce either partial or full memory loss for the period of treatment. As a result, time will appear to pass very quickly and you will not recall much of what has happened, so it may seem as if you have been “asleep” during the procedure, even though you remain conscious and can obey requests from your dentist.

Sedation is carried out by our Consultant Anaesthetist, Dr Head-Rapson.

Facial Rejuvenation

Injecting small amounts of Botox under the skin targets muscles and temporarily restricts their movement. This then reduces the formation of lines and wrinkles, resulting in a smoother and more radiant look. Just a small amount of Botox is required for visibly younger looking skin.

After 3-4 days, you will start to notice the difference and the effect will remain for between 12-20 weeks.
