General Dentistry

Root canal treatment:

Root canal treatment (endodontics) is a dental procedure used to treat infection at the centre of a tooth.

Root canal treatment is not painful and can save a tooth that might otherwise have to be eradicated.

The infection at the centre of a tooth (the root canal) is caused by bacteria that live in the mouth and invade the tooth.

This can happen after:

  • tooth decay
  • leaky fillings
  • damage to teeth as a result of trauma, such as a fall

Composite filling:

The filling is one of the most popular dental treatments in the UK. 

A composite filling is tooth-coloured and used to restore decayed, cracked or broken teeth.


A crown is a type of cap, that is custom-made and completely covers and protects the remaining part of your tooth that is badly damaged, broken or decayed.

Your dentist will offer you the type of crown they consider clinically necessary.

Dental bridge:

If you are suffering from tooth loss you might be eligible for a dental bridge treatment provided you have strong teeth with good bone support. The bridgework enables you to properly chew and speak as well as maintain the shape of your face. It can prevent the remaining teeth from drifting out of position and restore your smile.

Your dentist will examine your teeth and will be able to advise you on the best teeth replacement option.

Ceramic Veneers

Are used for cosmetic dentistry to improve the shape, size and colour of patients’ teeth by reshaping, improving the structure or the colour of a tooth, and closing small spaces.

Inlay and onlay treatments

A dental inlay is a pre-moulded filling cemented on a tooth when the cavity is too large for simple filling.

A dental onlay is for repairing a tooth with more extensive damage that spreads to the cusp or biting surface. While an inlay is usually for a cavity in your tooth’s grooves, an onlay covers the higher points around the edges of your tooth.

Dentures (false teeth)

Dentures are removable false teeth made of acrylic (plastic), nylon or metal. They fit snugly over the gums to replace missing teeth and eliminate potential problems caused by gaps.

Gaps left by missing teeth can cause problems with eating and speech, and teeth on either side of the gap may grow into the space at an angle.

Sometimes all the teeth need to be removed and replaced.

You may therefore need either:

  • complete dentures (a full set) – which replace all your upper or lower teeth, or
  • partial dentures – which replace just 1 tooth or a few missing teeth

Dentures may help prevent problems with eating and speech. If you need complete dentures, they may also improve the appearance of your smile and give you confidence.
