I have staining on my teeth, what can I do?

Over time, our teeth pick up superficial stains from our food and drink. The good news is that we can remove the majority of this staining - simply visit one of our hygienists. Sometime stains are more stubborn or are 'part' of the tooth. You may need tooth whitening, veneers or other treatments to improve the appearance of these teeth - our staff can guide you on the most appropriate option for you.



Yes, we work with 'direct access' to the hygienist - you'll simply have to fill out a short form when registering.

Yes. It is not healthy for your gums to be bleeding, however the problem will probably be something we can deal with. It is best to come in to see one of our caring and thoughtful hygienists or our gum specialist to look into the matter for you.

Bad breath is commonly a consequence of decayed teeth or unhealthy gums or both. One of our team can take all the necessary checks to find out for you and let you know how to resolve the problem.

It depends on the circumstance. Usually at home tooth whitening is the most effective and efficient way to whiten your teeth. To do this one of our hygienists or dentists will take impressions of your teeth and supply you with the custom made home whitening kit a week or so later.

Not only is the home whitening the best way to whiten your teeth, but you can also top up the whitening and control the colour of your teeth as you wish over many years.

In some cases tooth whitening treatment is not appropriate and other methods are required, such as veneers.

You should always have a check up and hygienist appointment before whitening your teeth.

Good question. If you have gum disease, you will need remedial treatment. After checking precisely which teeth the gum disease is effecting and to what degree, our periodontal specialist or one of our hygienists cleans your teeth below the gum line, usually after your mouth has been numbed, in the areas that have been identified as having gum disease. This is usually done over one, two or four appointments.

If you have gum disease, the first treatment is to have non-surgical periodontal treatment. The gums are then checked again, and if there is persistent gum disease, after discussion with our periodontist, you may have further treatment targeting the non-responsive persistent sites. The treatment, known as surgical periodontal therapy, is undertaken when your mouth is numbed - the gum is pulled back and the problematic area treated, and the gum is then stitched back in place.
