Your check-up is the best way to keep your ‘Teeth for life’.


























If it is clinically indicated you might have x-rays of your back teeth.

X-rays can show decay in between your teeth or under the edge of your fillings.  Finding dental problems early can save both time and money.

Hygiene Clean

(Scale and Polish)



Ask if a dentist or hygienist is doing the cleaning?

You can remove plaque by brushing and flossing but only dental instruments can remove calculus. An ultrasonic scaler will be used to blast away the larger chunks of tartar and follow up with hand instruments to thoroughly clean the teeth.



How much does a Amalgam filling cost?

(Silver Filling)



















The decay is removed from your tooth and the remaining cavity is filled with a mixture of metals, consisting of liquid mercury and a powdered alloy composed of silver, tin, and copper. Private fees for all types of fillings depend on the size and complexity of the treatment you need.

What does a Composite filling cost?

(White Filling)














Fillings should not only be functional, but also natural looking.  Many people don’t want silver fillings that show when they laugh or smile and opt for tooth coloured fillings.


How much does Root Canal Treatment cost?

Endodontic Treatment








































Root canal treatment is needed when the blood or nerve supply of you tooth is infected through decay or injury. This would need root canal treatment.

It’s a technically demanding treatment.

Fees depend on the tooth size and position (back teeth tend to be more expensive because they have more roots.) and complexity.





How much does it cost to have a tooth remove cost?




















Remember dental disease never cures itself. If you leave decay too long untreated and there's too much damage for the tooth to be repaired, the tooth may need to be removed.


Wisdom Tooth Extraction



From £189

You may need to have your wisdom teeth removed if they cause other dental health problems like:

·   tooth decay

·   gum disease

·  repeated mouth infections

·  an abscess (a collection of pus) on your gums or around your wisdom teeth


What is the cost of  a dental Crown cost?










































Crowns are artificial ‘caps’ designed to improve the appearance of teeth or to restore badly broken down teeth.

 Crowns are shaped like natural teeth and fit like a cap over your own teeth. Private prices depend on materials used and time taken. Crowns are lab-made of materials including porcelain (most expensive for a very natural tooth look), porcelain bonded on to precious metal, or all-metal (generally less expensive and used on back teeth).

What is the price of Dentures?

£550 for top or bottom denture

£495 for top or bottom denture

The private price of a full or partial denture will vary depending on what it’s made of, the number of teeth missing and the condition of the remaining teeth. Cobalt chrome dentures rest on the teeth, not the gums, and can fit better than acrylic, although you can have acrylic bonded on to chrome.
