Dental hygiene and a beautiful smile

Healthy teeth and gums – are essential to a beautiful smile and fresh breath which can be maintained by good dental hygiene and regular visits to our dental hygienist

An even whiter brighter smile – as you get older healthy teeth and gums alone might not be enough for a whiter brighter smile. Age and lifestyle-related discoloration can be treated with teeth whitening.

The perfect smile – might require a smile makeover requiring tooth, enhancement, realignment, repair or replacement with some or all of our tried-and-tested cosmetic treatments and procedures:

  • Teeth repair – enhancement of damaged or misshapen teeth with tooth-colour bonding
  • Teeth alignment – move and straighten teeth for a better appearance
  • Teeth reshaping – achieving a classical appearance with veneers
  • Teeth replacement – using dental implants tooth-like replacements
