What to do if you have a dental emergency

Advice for the period of self-isolation during the Covid-19 Pandemic

​For now, in the absence of face to face appointments we have added a link below to a document explaining how to manage some common dental issues.

Whilst we are still answering telephone calls and are happy to offer you advice, we thought that the attached document would be really useful. ‘Managing Toothache at Home’ contains lots of practical advice on handling an array of dental issues. Please feel free to download or print it for reference by clicking here

​We appreciate your assistance in trying to prevent the spread of this virus and as always, the health and wellbeing of our patients and staff is, and will continue to be, our top priority.

Keep well and keep safe.

Drinking coffee, tea, cola or red wine, and smoking eventually takes a toll on teeth. The results, as mentioned above, are dull or discoloured teeth. Some antibiotics can also cause darker grey-coloured stains.


Most teeth will benefit from whitening, which is a proven, safe and effective way to brighten stained or discoloured teeth. There are a variety of additional methods for restoring a bright white smile including porcelain veneers, composite bonding and dental implants that may be needed in addition to teeth whitening for a full smile makeover.


However, of all the advances made in dentistry to enhance the appearance of the teeth, whitening is the easiest and least invasive and is effective in most cases. The procedure is safe, simple, and more affordable than ever. For these reasons and more, whitening has become very popular.


In most instances, people ask about teeth whitening when there is a wedding, holiday or event on the horizon and it really is quite amazing to see the effect on people’s smiles when they are lightened even just a few shades. The entire smile becomes larger and brighter. Jonathan or Leigh-Ann can show the methods available and use an accurate shade guide prior to the treatment so you will know exactly how many shades your teeth have been brightened.
