Custom made whitening trays are worn filled with whitening gel, at home at a time to suit you, for between 3 hours or overnight.

Dental Implantsima002 Overtime some teeth become damaged beyond repair and therefore have to be extracted.

Dental Implants can be used to fill a space or spaces caused by missing teeth.

A Dental Implant is a titanium screw which is placed into the jaw under a local anaesthetic.

Once in place they can be used to support either a crown, bridge or denture depending on the number of teeth to be replaced.

No need to damage adjacent teeth

Cost effective, if cared for appropriately a Dental Implant can last for 10 years
