Invisible fillings

If you have small cracks, cavities or holes you may need a filling. We can restore the natural appearance of your tooth with invisible or ‘white’ fillings, comprising a durable long-lasting material that will also protect the tooth from further damage.

A crown is a natural-looking restoration for damaged or worn teeth that need a little more repair than a filling can offer. The damaged or worn tooth is sculpted to receive the crown or cap that is designed to fit perfectly and look natural.

No one looks forward to having a tooth extracted so rest assured we have the experience, technique and pain-minimising procedures such as sedation to complete the procedure quickly and with minimum discomfort and anxiety.

Root canals

If decay has infected the nerve supply to the tooth, you may need a root canal. We will remove the infection, as painlessly as possible, and restore your teeth to full health.
