General dentistry – overview of services
Fillings – Want your dental fillings to look natural in your mouth when you laugh and smile? We are an amalgam-free dental practice and use only composite white fillings for the general maintenance of teeth. Resin-based, theses repairs are extremely durable and can be successfully colour tailored and polished for a great match.
Dental crowns – An essential option for our dentists in the on-going care of our patients’ smiles, dental crowns are used where too much tooth structure is lost or damaged to support our normal white fillings. Generally made from porcelain or gold, they are able to restore shape, function and the appearance of our natural teeth.
Bridges – Dental bridges can span gaps where teeth have been lost and can often provide a cost-effective alternative to having our dental implant treatment.
Root fillings – Medically referred to as endodontic treatment our root fillings are carried out in house here at North Street. This complex, restorative procedure, that will often demand several appointments, is regularly used to save teeth where infection has compromised their clever, supporting structures deep below the gum line.
Oral hygiene – Our practice offers comprehensive dental hygiene therapies. We passionately believe in preventive dentistry and are committed to a patient education ethos that helps preserve smiles and gums. Visiting our dental hygienist is an essential part of ensuring your oral health is always in tip-top condition.
Tooth whitening – Gleaming smiles always catch the eye and our whitening procedures offer an effective way of lightening the tonal quality of teeth. Our medically endorsed tooth whitening system complies with stringent legal parameters and can offer stunning results that can help boost confidence.
Dental sedation – For anxious or nervous patients requiring therapy to overcome their fear of the dentist, North Street Dental and Implant Practice offers intravenous sedation, sometimes referred to as conscious sedation. Treatment enables a pain-free experience where, for the majority, even the short-term memory of surgery is erased.
Dental extractions – No-one likes losing teeth and we will do everything possible to preserve them. Inevitably, however difficult the decision, it is sometimes necessary to have a tooth extracted. In this case, our staff will ensure a painless procedure with a local anesthetic. Intravenous sedation is an option for those who are overly anxious.
3D Dental imaging – We now offer a remarkable new technology called 3D ConeBeam Imaging that creates virtually limitless views of the face, neck and teeth, for more complete treatment planning. It’s fast, simple and completely painless – patients just stand for a single 15-second scan that can produce powerful, diagnostic images.
Referrals – We are committed to fellow practitioners in providing referral services to further the care of their patients. Therapies offered include implants, complex restorative care, sedation, quality dentures and scanning. As part of our practice code we operate a Referral Charter pledging integrity, transparency and good faith.
