We have brought together a fantastic and dedicated team of dental practitioners and professionals to ensure that we provide a complete dental service.
Your first point of contact is likely to be with Kim, our Reception Manager. You’ll notice straight away that we are different to any other dental practice which you may have experienced before.
Kim will make sure that we fully understand your requirements and she will do what she can to address any queries and concerns that you may have.
If you are happy, Kim will help you to find a suitable time for your first appointment.
Your initial consultation will be free of charge as we want you to be sure that we can work together. It is our sincere hope that you will be delighted with us and the services that we provide and feel able to trust us to take care of you.
Dental Health Review
As soon as you arrive at Abi Dental you will be made to feel welcome.
The first thing that you will notice is the relaxing and comfortable environment. Who ever said that a dental surgery has to be cold and clinical – we think it should be warm, luxurious and relaxing.
And better still we won’t ask you to hop straight into the dentist’s chair. We think it’s important to get to know each other a little better first, so what better way than a chat over a cup of coffee with one of our treatment co-ordinators.
We think it’s about you telling us about your concerns and goals and it’s not about us telling you what we think that you need. So we will ask you to complete a short medical history form and discuss with you any concerns that you may have.
You will then be introduced to Abi, who will give your teeth, gums and mouth a complete Dental Health Review. We will also take some images of your mouth which we can show you on a video screen.
Then it’s back off to a comfortable chair where Abi will share with you her findings and if required discuss the treatment options that are available to you. We will provide you with a written report and our treatment co-ordinator will ensure that we explain everything to you and that you are fully aware of your treatment options.
Then all there is left to do is to schedule your treatment plan to fit around your busy life!
Transform dull into dazzling – whiten dark or discoloured teeth safely with our whitening treatment. So many cosmetic treatments involve lengthy or unpleasant procedures but with our tooth whitening procedure you can achieve noticeable results safely, quickly and easily.
In the past, fillings were always made out of either gold or a silver and mercury alloy called amalgam. Both of these materials work very well and in some circumstances they are still a suitable choice however they both have one really big disadvantage - they don’t resemble natural teeth in appearance.
Our first choice would always be tooth-coloured material and that means we can create beautiful, natural-looking fillings that won’t spoil your smile. We can also discuss replacing existing amalgam fillings with white material as part of a cosmetic smile makeover.
Crowns and Veneers
If a tooth is badly broken down as a result of decay or trauma it may not be possible to build it up again using a filling. In this case it may be better to restore the tooth using a crown.
A crown is an artificial tooth which is attached to the remnants of a natural one. Teeth that are severely discoloured or out of position can also be improved by crowning.
Placing a crown requires the removal of quite a lot of natural tooth tissue so whenever possible we would rather place a veneer. These are carefully bonded to the surface of a natural tooth to mask imperfections in the enamel or improve the position and appearance. Veneers often require much less preparation of the natural tooth tissue and so preserve much more of what nature gave you.

Liz, our hygienist, will tailor a dental health regime that will reflect your lifestyle and goals. It isn’t just a matter of effective cleaning and regular visits but nutritional advice and support, especially if you are attempting to quit smoking.
Using the right products helps enormously too so it is our policy to recommend products and where possible to have them available to purchase from the practice at competitive prices.
Its not that we don’t like them, in fact we think they’re great, its just that we are a dental practice that is primarily focused on providing a dental service for adult patients.
However that doesn’t mean that we don’t see children at all, so if you are a registered patient and you would like us to see your one of your brood then please contact reception and we will be delighted to help.

What is Invisalign?
A smile can change everything
Your confidence. Your outlook. Your life. And with Invisalign, achieving the smile you always dreamed of doesn’t have to be a big deal. In fact, it barely has to impact your day-to-day life at all.
Invisalign straightens teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made specifically for your teeth. As you replace each aligner every two weeks, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week, gradually moving towards the projected final position.
Comfortable, clear and removable – Invisalign transforms your smile without disrupting your life. Something that over 3 million people worldwide have already discovered.
