General & Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments

Composite Dental Bonding

Teeth can become decayed, chipped or damaged in different ways. It might be that the tooth or teeth appear slightly crooked or set back. Composite bonding (also known as cosmetic bonding) uses a very strong tooth-coloured resin to repair and improve the appearance of mildly damaged, crooked and discoloured teeth. As the bonding materials are tooth-like in appearance, we can also effectively whiten or lighten the colour of the teeth without the need for other whitening products – effectively offering two treatments for the price of one.

We have the experience and top quality materials (only available to dental professionals) to be able to offer you the very best composite bonding treatment in the world today.This procedure provides a simple and cost effective solution to many dental issues that might either be affecting your enjoyment of your smile or causing you discomfort


A crown is an ideal way to rebuild an entire tooth or teeth that have been broken above the gum margin, or have been weakened by decay. It can improve the colour, shape and position of the teeth. A precise shade can be chosen to give the right colour match. We can also lighten the rest of your teeth ahead of fitting crowns and veneers for that all-over bright white smile.

Enamel Shaping

Enamel shaping is a painless procedure that improves the appearance of natural teeth by reshaping them. It is ideal for correcting minor issues like uneven or slightly overcrowded teeth. Immediate results can be seen, and enamel shaping can be combined with whitening, veneers, or bonding for enhanced outcomes.

Composite Fillings

When existing fillings wear, chip, or crack, it’s an opportunity to replace silver amalgam fillings with tooth-coloured composites. People opt for this change due to aesthetic preferences or concerns about mercury in amalgam. While composite fillings may wear faster in larger cavities, they perform equally well in small cavities.

Gum Reshaping

Gum reshaping enhances a “gummy” smile by addressing short teeth or an uneven gum line. By removing a small amount of gum tissue (and excess bone if needed), more of the teeth are exposed. This procedure can be performed on one tooth for gum line symmetry or on multiple teeth for a wider, natural-looking smile.

Gum Grafts

Exposed tooth roots from gum recession can cause sensitivity and elongated appearance. It also increases the risk of cavities and eventual tooth loss due to bone loss. Soft tissue grafts transfer healthy gum tissue to halt recession, prevent bone loss, and enhance gum line aesthetics. Consult our professionals for personalised treatment options.

Sports Mouthguards

Prioritise protecting your teeth during sports activities with our custom-made mouthguards which are designed to minimise damage. They are individually crafted and fitted for optimal comfort and protection. Choose from a range of colours to match your team. Safeguard your smile with our high-quality sports mouthguards.
