Professional Treatments That Will Get You Smiling Again
TOOTH COLOURED FILLINGS
Fillings today don’t just have to be functional; they can be aesthetic too, and many patients may prefer to not see silver fillings when they smile and laugh.
Previously, white fillings were considered to be less durable than silver ones, but with modern materials and techniques, this is often a thing of the past. Arrange an appointment to find out how such fillings could enhance your smile
Crowns (often referred to as caps) are laboratory made restorations that can be used to reinforce a weakened tooth, or enhance its’ appearance.
The tooth will be correctly shaped to receive a crown, and a temporary crown will be provided whilst the permanent one is being made. If you choose a cosmetic crown, we will help you choose the most appropriate colour to make the crown as natural looking as possible.
There are many different types of crowns that are available and suited to different situations. Make an appointment today to speak to one of our dentists to find out what will be best for you.

What to expect?
Once your dentist has confirmed that tooth whitening is an appropriate treatment for you, impressions will be taken of your teeth. This will allow special trays to be made that will fit your teeth precisely, helping to ensure optimal whitening results. You will then return to your dentist to have the trays fitted, and you will be provided with whitening gel and through instructions to allow to complete the treatment in the comfort of your own home. You will see results in 2-4 weeks.
Frequently asked questions:
- Will my teeth feel sensitive if I whiten them?
Sensitivity is often heard of when talking about tooth whitening. Our dentists will recommend tooth pastes and a daily regime that will minimise any discomfort that may occur from sensitivity as a result of tooth whitening. Any sensitivity experience is almost always only temporary.
- How white will my teeth become?
As white as you like! In most cases, the longer you whiten for, the whiter the teeth will become. As the process has a gently approach, you can stop using it once you are happy with the results. Enlighten Whiten is the only whitening system that guarantees a B1 shade (the whitest possible) at the end of treatment.
- How long will the results last?
The colour of teeth can be affected by many things such as your diet or smoking status. Keep your trays safe, and so long as your teeth are healthy, we can provide you with more whitening gel to help you keep your teeth looking their best.

In severe cases, periodontal surgery may be indicated and your dentist will discuss this with you should it be indicated.
