Our dentists & hygienists provide bespoke, personalised dental treatments for both adults and children. Offering the most contemporary dental solutions for our patients in all aspects of general dentistry.
A smile makeover is the process of improving the appearance as well as the health of your entire mouth, including your teeth and gums, through various dental procedures like orthodontics, veneers and tooth whitening.
A dental bridge is a permanent, artificial replacement for one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge is a false tooth (or teeth) that is held in place by being fixed to 1 or more support (or abutment) teeth on either side of the gap left by a lost tooth.
A dental veneer is a thin covering that is fixed to the front of a natural tooth to either protect it or to improve the way it looks. Veneers are used to treat teeth that are stained, chipped, crooked or an unusual size or shape.
It is important that you visit a hygienist and maintain your dental hygiene and health during pregnancy. Pregnancy causes hormonal changes that can increase the risk of developing gum disease, which in turn can affect the health of your developing baby.
Dental care for babies is an essential part of their overall health. Baby teeth begin to erupt from around 6 months and you should start cleaning them as soon as they do. It is important for them to visit a dentist not long after their first tooth appears.
Maternal dental health is vital for the overall health of both you and your baby. There are several conditions that can affect your dental health while pregnant so it is important to visit the dentist before, during and after pregnancy.
Children’s dental health is important from the moment their first tooth appears. It is important to bring your child to the dentist early so their teeth and gums can be examined and so they get used to the sights and smells of a dental practice early on.
Wisdom teeth are the last to emerge and sometimes there is not enough room in the jaw for them to come through completely. When this happens, it may be advisable to have the wisdom teeth removed because they can be painful and prone to trapping food.
Mouthguards can be used to either protect your teeth from impact trauma sustained during contact sports like rugby or martial arts, or they can help prevent the damage caused by the wear and tear of grinding your teeth at night.
Root canal treatment is required when the pulp in the root of the tooth has become infected and needs to be removed. The infected tissue is completely cleaned from the root and replaced with a special filling which prevents the infection from returning.
Tooth fillings plug the gap left behind when tooth decay wears away the enamel of the tooth and causes fractures and small holes. Fillings prevent further decay and infection by removing damaged tissue and replacing it with material which is not susceptible to tooth decay and infection.
A tooth extraction may be required if the tooth has become too damaged, or if the gum has deteriorated and can no longer support it. Tooth extractions are relatively quick and simple procedures and you will be sedated so that it should also be painless.
A comprehensive dental examination will fully assess how healthy your teeth and gums are, check for any dental health problems you may be experiencing and help you prevent any from appearing in the future. You will need a dental examination before any new treatment beings.
If you need an emergency dental appointment in South West London or Surrey, contact us immediately – whether you are an existing patient or not. We are open 7 days a week for dental emergencies and aim to treat them as quickly and painlessly as possible.
Smokers stain removal can help to fight the discolouration of teeth that often accompanies smoking tobacco. Tobacco stains are not only unsightly, they are also more prone to plaque and calculus build ups. Stain removal can eradicate stains and look out for signs of gum disease in smokers.
Tooth stain removal is a treatment which eradicates discolouration and restores teeth to their natural colour and brightness. Food and drink such as coffee, tea and wine can all lead to tooth stains, as well as smoking tobacco. Treatment can help remove and prevent tooth stains.
Dental hygienist treatment provides a complete, professional clean of your teeth and gums by removing any built-up plaque, tartar and calculus which has not been removed via brushing or flossing. Dental hygiene treatments help prevent gum disease by removing the bacteria found in plaque which causes it.
All-on-4 dental implants use just 4 implant screws to provide a stable and permanent foundation for a full arch restoration of either the lower or upper jaw. All-on-4 dental implants can provide a more natural-looking, comfortable and stable alternative to removable dentures or other alternatives.
A full arch restoration is a procedure which replaces an entire arch (or jaw) of missing teeth using 4-6 implant screws and a fixed dental bridge or denture. A full arch restoration can be used when the jaw bone cannot support All-on-4 implants.
Bone grafting is a procedure which rebuilds and restores bone that has lost mass, either due to trauma or infection. Bone grafts are often performed in dentistry to provide a more stable foundation in the upper or lower jaw bone to support dental implants.
Dental implants are metal screws which support artificial replacement teeth such as crowns, bridges or fixed dentures. Dental implants help missing teeth by acting as a permanent substitute for the natural roots of your teeth. They can be used to replace one tooth or an entire arch.
Sinus Augmentation (or a sinus lift) is a surgical procedure which adds bone to your upper jaw in the area of your premolar and molar teeth. A sinus lift makes it easier for your jaw to support a dental implant by providing a more stable foundation.
Dental crowns are artificial caps which are made to look, feel and act exactly like your natural teeth. Dental crowns are either fixed to an existing, damaged tooth to restore and protect it, or to an implant to replace a missing tooth.
Fixed metal braces (otherwise known as train track braces) use metal brackets glued to the front of your teeth to hold a metal wire which slowly pulls crooked teeth into alignment. Metal braces are still one of the most common ways to straighten teeth.
Invisible braces are created using clear, almost see-through plastic which are fitted to the backs of your teeth, rather than the front. This allows invisible braces to straighten your teeth effectively yet discreetly, as they are far harder to notice than traditional metal braces.
Damon Braces use a sliding mechanism on the bracket to hold the wire in place, instead of the elastic or rubber bands used by fixed metal braces. This makes Damon Braces a faster and more hygienic orthodontic treatment than alternative orthodontic treatments.
Clear braces work in the same way as traditional metal braces; brackets are attached to the teeth to hold a wire in place which gradually pulls the teeth into alignment. Braces can now be made from clear, plastic materials to make them harder to spot.
Ceramic braces work in a similar way to metal braces; brackets are used to hold a wire in place which slowly straightens teeth over time. Ceramic braces are made from a tooth-coloured ceramic material, which allows them to straighten teeth without being seen.
Incognito braces, otherwise known as Lingual braces, work in the same way as the traditional metal bracket system. However, Incognito braces are attached to the rear of the teeth, making them far harder to spot than braces fixed to the front.
Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to gently reposition teeth. Invisalign trays are made from transparent plastic, meaning they can straighten your teeth without anyone noticing. Invisalign trays can also be removed when you eat, drink and clean your teeth, which means minimal disruption to your daily life.
Pinhole Gum Surgery is a procedure that gently pulls the gum back over the root of the tooth when the root has become exposed due to receding gums. Pinhole gum surgery does not require stitches and is less invasive than other, alternative procedures.
Peri-implantitis is an infectious disease caused by bacteria affecting the soft tissues and bone around a dental implant. Treatment for peri-implantitis involves thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting the contaminated area, treating damage to the soft tissue and rebuilding the supporting bone structure for the dental implant.
Crown lengthening surgery is a procedure which retracts and reshapes the gum line, exposing more of the natural tooth to act as a stable foundation for an artificial dental crown. Crown lengthening surgery can also be used to treat a gummy smile.
Root surface debridement involves the careful removal of deposits of calculus and plaque from the root surface. When healthy, the gum surrounding the tooth will fit tightly with a small space between measuring 1-3mm.
Gum grafting is a procedure which transfers healthy gum tissue from one area of the mouth and uses it to build up and restore damaged gums that have receded. Receding gums can expose the tooth root and create pockets for bacteria to thrive in.
