Dental Treatments

Our team provide a comprehensive range of dental treatments to suit your needs. They will ensure all treatments are appropriate and safe for you.

Here is an overview of some of the dental treatments and services we provide at our practice. If you have any questions about any dental services then feel free to contact us.

White Fillings

White fillings are increasingly popular with patients for their improved appearance. They are versatile and can be used in many different situations. As well as improved appearance they are bonded to the tooth surface which means less tooth tissue is removed during their placement. If a white filling is not suitable other options may be considered such as veneers, crowns or inlays. Our dentists will help guide you to make the right choice.

Hygienist Services

Good gum health is the foundation of a healthy mouth. Our therapists and hygienists will not only provide the treatment you require to keep your gums healthy but will teach you how to keep your teeth as clean as possible at home.

If your teeth are heavily stained due to diet or smoking, our hygienists can spend time removing the stains with a cosmetic scaling.


Dentures can be a great solution to fill gaps created by missing teeth. Various materials can be used to improve fit and comfort of dentures. These include metal to make the denture thinner and improve the fit around the teeth. A more recent advancement in denture technology is flexible dentures which reduces the size of the denture and can increases the retention, giving the wearer more confidence.

Root Fillings

Root fillings are often performed following irreversible damage to the tooth’s nerve. This can be secondary to trauma, decay or the presence of a filling/crown in the tooth. Often a patient will present in extreme pain with a nerve that is inflamed or infected. They will be given the option to extract the tooth or attempt to retain the tooth by undergoing a root canal filling treatment. The procedure requires a high degree of skill and takes a prolonged period of time (sometimes more than one visit).

Our dentist Richard Amos has a special interest in endodontics (root fillings) and would be happy to provide your treatment. He has a masters degree in Clinical Endodontics and works for ABMU health board as a dentist with enhanced skills in endodontics.

Mouthguards/Gum Shields

These are an essential piece of kit if you or your child plays a contact sport. Dental trauma can lead to extensive, prolonged treatment and in some cases tooth loss. The damage can be significantly reduced by wearing a mouthguard. We provide a range of different colours to choose from.

Tooth Extraction

There are various reasons why a tooth may need to be removed such as significant structural damage, irreversible nerve damage, gum disease, crowding in the mouth or complications with teeth not coming through into the mouth properly.

Difficult cases may need to be referred to a specialist in a hospital or oral surgery clinic. Some teeth are very difficult to remove due to anatomy or of they are badly damaged. In these cases, a surgical extraction may be necessary.

Tooth Whitening

Tooth whitening remains one of the safest and most popular cosmetic treatments in dentistry. Our dentists will ensure the procedure is appropriate for you and will guide you through the process. Please contact us if you would like more information.


A crown or a ‘cap’ is a protective covering that goes over a tooth to provide more strength or function.

A crown is fixed onto a tooth using cement and may be recommended in cases where a tooth is significantly damaged or has undergone complex restorative work such as a root canal treatment which may lead to the tooth becoming brittle.

In some cases, large fillings may not be recommended. A crown can also be used to make a tooth look better in some cases with wear on the teeth or defects affecting the appearance or shape.


A bridge is a fixed restoration used to replace missing teeth. It is secured by attaching to the adjacent teeth. Bridges can be suitable for small to medium sized spaces. Their success is often dependent on the strength and health of the retaining teeth. Alternatives to bridges include accepting the space, a removable denture or an implant.
