Teeth Whitening

Wouldn't you love to have a brighter smile?

If you would like to improve the appearance of your smile an easily arranged consultation can give you the detailed advice you need, together with a treatment plan for each option.

After we have taken an impression mould of your teeth, the dental technician is able to make upper and lower trays for your teeth.


These trays will fit perfectly like a 'second skin' to your teeth. You will have the trays to take home and keep forever. We will provide you with an initial supply of bleaching syringes and you may whiten as instructed by the dentist.

Our method of home whitening will be a great investment for anyone wanting to enhance the whiteness of their teeth.

Our price is a very competitive: £390.00

Reasons to whiten your teeth:

1. To make you look and feel better
2. You'll want to smile more often
3. To give you confidence
4. A painless and easy procedure

Teeth naturally darken as we age. It is often possible to whiten teeth with bleaching techniques. So whether you have naturally yellow teeth, or just surface staining from tea, coffee, red wine or tobacco, we have a treatment that can give you a whiter smile that you always wanted.

96% of people see a smile as very important to someone's appearance.

Dental Check Up

Helping You Get Healthy

We firmly believe that prevention is better than cure. We want our patients to keep their teeth for life. We can pre-book routine examinations to help us ensure patients are seen at the right time so we can carefully monitor their dental and oral health and provide the best advice to prevent problems occurring in the first place.


Periodontal (Gum) Disease

19 out of 20 people suffer from gum disease at some point in their lives, making it the most common disease in the world.

It attacks the gum tissues and the bone underneath, which hold the teeth in place. If your gums bleed it means you have gum disease. This can lead to bad breath, pain and in the long term tooth loss.

 Latest Equipment

We are equipped with an intra-oral camera which enables us to show close-up images of the patient's teeth and gums on a tv screen, to illustrate problem areas and cosmetic improvements. We also have digital X-ray equipment where the picture appears instantly on a computer screen and can be assessed immediately with the benefit of computer enhancement and magnification.

Radiation doses are significantly lower than those required by a regular X-ray film.

One of the most effective non-surgical facial treatments is  muscle relaxing
injections. They require the administering of precise and painless injections, a technique in which dentists are particularly skilled.We aim for a natural but significant result so only you will know.
The first step is a free in-depth consultation.
Muscle relaxing injections work by temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause lines, such as frowning. It can also be used to reduce crow's feet around the eyes.
