I have been helping people find their smile for 22 years. My specialisms are restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry and root canal therapy.

OPTIONS AVAILABLE FOR A BETTER SMILE
NOTE: Sometimes not much is needed.. you may only need some tooth whitening and/or some simple new fillings:)
A) ENLIGHTEN TOOTH WHITENING
I'm a personal fan of this treatment. So many of my patients feel much happier after they have whitened their teeth using this home whitening system. Don’t underestimate the changes a brighter smile could bring into your life. Smile with confidence! Custom made premium whitening trays are your guarantee to a B1 dazzling smile. B1 is the lightest natural tooth colour, however teeth can go whiter. It’s important that a full check up is done prior to using this system to ensure your a good candidate and that there aren’t any underlying dental issues.
Costs start at £495
B) COMPOSITE BONDING (white fillings)
Composite bonding is a modern way to restore teeth, either for cosmetic reasons, or to build up tooth structure that has been lost. It involves bonding a tooth coloured resin material to existing teeth to reshape them or improve their colour. I can bond on very strongly the resin material, polish it up, and this will last for many years. Composite bonding is appropriate for pretty much every patient. Any little imperfection can be improved with composite bonding. Small edges or badly broken down teeth can be built up again with this very conservative treatment. These composite bondings can also be used to replace old metal fillings in your mouth which is very popular with my patients.
Costs start at £250/tooth
C) CROWNS AND VENEERS
Veneers and crowns are both dental restoration methods that can improve the look and function of your teeth. The main difference is that a veneer covers only the front of your tooth and a crown covers the entire tooth. I use Emax all-ceramic restorations to offer a cosmetic solution to the front of your mouth and Zirconia ceramic restorations to replace old crowns or heavily restored teeth at the back of your mouth. Generally these treatments need 2/3 appointments and a visit to the laboratory for shade taking. ( picture below shows two central crowns)
Cost start at £795/tooth
This is a snap shot of what can be done, ideally treatment planning can be done on your initial consultation.
