Services Provided

Hygiene Visits

Hidden and difficult-to-reach plaque and tartar is removed from your teeth removing rough surfaces which contribute to build up of bacterial numbers, and improving the health of your teeth and gums. Hygienists can also help you maintain brighter, whiter teeth.

Scale & Polish

The first ‘scrape’ stage removes the deposits of plaque and tartar. Often an ultrasound scraper is used first to get rid of the bulk of the tartar, followed by specialised hand held instruments to scrape away any stubborn remains.
The next step is to ‘polish’ the teeth to make the surface really smooth. While polishing removes stains leaving teeth bright and shiny, it is not just a cosmetic procedure. It also smooths away minor imperfections and patches of rough texture on the teeth to protect against further plaque build up. Your dentist will advise you how often you should have a scale and polish. It’s important to remember that professional cleaning is an addition to a good daily oral health routine.

Cosmetic Fillings

Inlays and onlays, also called indirect fillings, are made from gold, porcelain, or composite materials and fill decayed or damaged teeth. Dental fillings are molded into place during an in-house visit; however, inlays and onlays are created in a dental laboratory and bonded into place by your dentist. The filling is called an “inlay” when the material is bonded within the centre of a tooth; it is called an “onlay” when the filling includes one or more points of the tooth or covers the biting surface. Inlays and onlays preserve as much healthy tooth as possible and are an alternative to crowns.


Braces correct alignment problems by putting steady pressure on the teeth, which eventually moves them into a straighter position.

Root Filling

Your teeth have ‘roots’ that anchor them into your jawbone. Inside each of your teeth there is a mixture of blood vessels and nerves called pulp. Pulp sits inside a space called the pulp chamber and this extends down into the roots of the tooth. The pulp chamber within the root is called the root canal.


A tooth can be removed for several reasons. Some of the most common reasons include:

  • A broken tooth that cannot be repaired
  • Tooth decay – if a tooth is rotten, its nerves and blood vessels can die, leading to a painful abscess
  • Severe gum disease (periodontal disease) – when bacteria builds up on your teeth and damages the bone that holds them in place, the teeth may become loose.
  • Crowded teeth – if you have a small jaw or lost your milk (baby) teeth early, your teeth may be crooked and you may need to have one or more removed so that the rest can be straightened.

Teeth Whitening

Tooth whitening can have a huge effect on your smile and is the simplest and most affordable way of enhancing it. Whitening your teeth can help remove staining caused by smoking or drinking tea, coffee and red wine and because your teeth darken with age, making them whiter can also make you look younger.


A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over your tooth. It’s a permanent solution and once it’s fixed in place, a crown should look, feel and function just like any other tooth.

Crowns are usually needed if you have a damaged or weakened tooth that can’t be fixed with a filling. Sometimes people have crowns for cosmetic reasons, but mainly it’s due to a lack of remaining tooth structure.
