Private Treatments

Dentistry is no longer just a case of filling and extracting teeth. NHS dentistry will maintain and secure your oral health, however nowadays many people seek cosmetic dentistry as a way of improving their appearance and smile. The treatments can be used to straighten, lighten, reshape and repair teeth. Cosmetic treatments that we offer include veneers, crowns, bridges, tooth-coloured fillings and tooth whitening.

Cosmetic treatments are not available on the NHS. For instance, you cannot have tooth-coloured fillings and tooth-coloured crowns on back teeth on the NHS, but you can have silver amalgam fillings and gold or silver crowns. However, if you wish to have tooth-coloured fillings or tooth-coloured crowns on the back teeth, you can opt to have these carried out on a private basis, without affecting your NHS status.
