As well as offering cosmetic and routine dentistry, we offer specialist care, including prosthodontics. This field of dentistry concerns prosthetic dentistry – in other words, dental prostheses. In full, it covers:
- Crown and bridgework
- Dental implants
- Cosmetic dentistry (such as veneers)
- Denture construction
- Full mouth reconstruction
- TMJ therapy
Our dentists aim to combine form and function – restoring the patient’s ability to bite and chew while enhancing the health and beauty of their smile. Although some treatments may seem cosmetic in type, the focus is always on boosting oral health and ensuring patients can retain their teeth throughout their lives.
Your Dental Implant Journey
The first step on any treatment journey with us is an in-depth consultation, as it helps us to assess your smile, gives us the opportunity to look over your dental history, and ensures you can discuss your treatment in advance – with absolutely no commitment. In prosthodontics, the consultation involves diagnosing causes of oral deterioration and developing treatment plans.
Prosthodontics aims to provide an artificial restoration (such as a crown) which should blend with the patient’s mouth, teeth and gums. Treatment could include:
- Veneers – a tooth-coloured facing that can cover dull, discoloured teeth; protect teeth from further damage; and correct the appearance of misalignment or gaps
- Crowns – a whole tooth covering, these aim to restore function and strength to the tooth
- Bridges – these involve anchoring an artificial tooth (or teeth) between two existing teeth in the mouth
- Dental implants – these are complete false teeth, which anchor to your jaw bone and can stay in place for life
We’re committed to dental excellence – so in our minds, the treatment doesn’t end when we put down our tools. For prosthodontic treatment, aftercare depends on the procedure or treatment you’ve been offered, but rest assured our expert dentists will be with you at every stage to ensure you’re healthy, happy and comfortable.

An anaesthetic is administered for any part of the process that may be painful.
Prosthodontics aims to create a natural-looking, natural-performing tooth restoration that can benefit oral health. Our team can enhance the shape and appearance of your smile through whitening, colour-matching and bonding techniques, all the while using fixed prostheses to retain or improve the function of the mouth, teeth and gums.
The first step on your journey is a consultation, as there are certain factors that can affect suitability, such as gum disease, periodontal disease and tooth decay.
