We care about your dental health and that of your family. We encourage preventive techniques that will help you to understand how to maintain the health of your mouth. What's more, as a practice, every member of our team is fully committed to continuing dental education and keeping up to speed with changes and advances in modern dentistry.
We also understand that a healthy, attractive smile helps promote and sustain your sense of inner wellbeing and contentment. For this reason, our cosmetic services are designed to deliver confidence, with a smile.
This is where it all starts. Following a relaxed discussion, a thorough consultation and examination will be carried out. The dental surgeon will look at the jaw joint, the muscles surrounding it and then look inside the mouth. A thorough cancer screen will be carried out and finally the condition of the teeth and gums will be assessed. The examination will also include the use of x-rays to check areas that the eye cannot see - the use of digital imaging reduces the exposure levels to x-rays.
The next part of the consultation involves formulating a plan of action that will deliver the mouth to a healthy condition, the maintenance of oral health and any cosmetic changes required.
An easy and cost effective way of delivering brighter, whiter teeth.
Home whitening system - this simple procedure uses custom-fitted trays that deliver hydrogen peroxide to the teeth over a period of 2-3 weeks in the privacy of your own home.
In-office whitening - this procedure is carried out in the practice and involves the application of the in-office bleaching agent to the teeth. This takes about one hour but the results are instantaneous!
A smile makeover can deliver dramatic results and a superb smile without drastic measures. A beautiful natural smile can be created by restoring and straightening chipped and crooked teeth. The replacement of old metal fillings with aesthetically pleasing tooth-coloured alternatives can also enhance your smile.
These are a solution to restoring gaps, missing teeth or loose dentures.
Dental implants are small titanium screws that are inserted into the jaw bone. These then integrate with the bone and become part of the jaw to form an artificial tooth root allowing for the placement of a new crown, bridge or anchorage of a denture.
With over 40 years of research they have become an increasingly popular solution to replacing missing teeth. Both Dr Patrick R Rea and Dr David P Murnaghan have trained in this field of dentistry and feel that they allow their patients the freedom to carry on with their lives with new confidence.
A beautiful new smile in just two visits!
Natural, strong and long-lasting, porcelain veneers are a popular choice for people who want to improve the look and function of their teeth.
If you have healthy teeth and gums, but are unhappy with the way your smile looks, porcelain veneers may be a quick and easy solution. Veneers can help brighten front teeth that have permanent stains or discoloration that can't be whitened. They may be used to correct small gaps between the front teeth, teeth that are poorly shaped or slightly crooked, or teeth that are chipped, worn or eroded.
If you have healthy teeth and gums, but are unhappy with the way your smile looks, veneers might be right for you.
Metal free fillings, crowns and bridges
Fillings, crowns and bridges are used to restore teeth, to provide strength and durability and close gaps.
In the past fillings, crowns and bridges were used to restore teeth and they all had some metal content. This could lead to unsightly restorations in filled teeth, and unsightly margins around teeth that were crowned or supporting bridges.
This does not have to be the case. Today with the advances of modern technology it is possible to replace all fillings with natural tooth-coloured alternatives that enhance your smile. Crowns and bridges do not have to have the old fashioned metal sub-structure and so deliver a high quality cosmetic finish that mimics nature.
It is important to take a holistic approach to dental care.
This involves looking after both the teeth and their supporting structures.
Gum disease is responsible for the loss of more teeth than tooth decay. Regular visits to the hygienist will help to maintain healthy periodontal tissues (gums, ligament and bone). Maintaining good oral hygiene, along with regular hygiene maintenance visits, will prolong the natural lifespan of your teeth, prevent bleeding gums and gum recession and oral malodour.
Our hygiene programme will also include dietary advice, oral hygiene instruction and fissure sealants where prescribed.
