White Fillings

White fillings or teeth coloured fillings are a type of dental restoration used to repair teeth that have been damaged by decay, fractures, or other dental issues. Unlike traditional silver amalgam fillings, white fillings are made from a composite resin material that matches the natural colour of your teeth, making them a more aesthetically pleasing option.


Orthodontic treatment is a way of straightening or moving teeth to improve the appearance of the teeth and how they work. We provide orthodontic treatment in a few ways including clear aligners / traditional metal brackets.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure aimed at brightening and lightening the colour of teeth. It can be done through various methods, including professional treatments at the dentist’s surgery or over-the-counter products like whitening toothpaste and strips. It’s important to consult with a dentist before starting any teeth whitening regimen to ensure it is safe and suitable for your oral health.


Dental veneers are a popular cosmetic dental procedure used to improve the appearance of teeth that are discoloured, stained, misaligned, chipped, or have other aesthetic issues. Veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth, effectively changing their shape, size, colour, or alignment. They can provide a long-lasting solution for enhancing your smile.

Periodontal Treatment

Periodontal care focuses on the health and treatment of the gums and supporting structures of the teeth. Periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease, can lead to serious oral health issues if left untreated.

Bespoke Dentures

Bespoke dentures, also known as custom or personalized dentures, are specially crafted dental prosthetics designed to fit a patient's mouth precisely and provide optimal comfort and functionality. These dentures are custom-made to match the individual's unique oral anatomy, ensuring a natural appearance and better oral function compared to standard, one-size-fits-all dentures.
