Invisalign is a treatment that straightens teeth with the use of clear plastic aligners. An aligner is a plastic tray that ﬁts tightly over your teeth, a bit like a night guard or whitening tray. You wear the aligners for 10-14 days and then replace with with new ones. Each aligner moves your teeth a little bit.
Because it is clear, it is much less noticeable. In fact some people refer to it as ‘invisible braces’ and for some it really is so clear that they are completely unnoticeable.
Contact us for a consultation with Dr Arun Jeyarajan to discuss whether Invisalign is suitable for you and what all your options are.
Conscious Sedation for nervous and anxious patients
It is not uncommon to have a fear of the dentist but it is important that you don’t neglect going to the dentist as a result of of your phobia.
Sedation can make you feel more relaxed and at ease enabling them to have their dental treatment with the support of local anaesthetic.
We offer intra-venous sedation, which is administered via a small plastic tube which is usually placed in your hand and a sedative drug is administered via this tube.
Conscious sedation means that you will remain awake throughout your treatment but you will become very relaxed and therefore able to accept the treatment.
You can now refer yourself for Sedation.
Cerec – Same day crowns
CEREC is a technology that uses an onsite 3D milling machine to make your dental restorations (inlays and Crowns while you wait, with high-precision results. CEREC makes use of CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) technology that makes it possible for the dental restoration to be created chairside, eliminating the need for dental impressions and dramatically cutting the time for the dental treatment to be completed.
Tooth whitening can be a highly effective, yet very simple way, of lightening the colour of teeth without removing any of the tooth surface.
Whitening is a procedure where tooth discolouration is ‘whitened’ to a lighter shade through chemical means. It is a safe procedure when carried out under professional dental supervision. The General Dental Council (GDC) has identiﬁed that tooth whitening is part of the practice of dentistry, and dentistry must only be carried out by dental professionals who are registered with them.
Treatment time and results usually depend on the severity of the discolouration. It is not effective on dental restorations such as amalgam ﬁllings, metal or porcelain crowns, veneers etc. However, we can advise on the options for replacing restorations after whitening to complete your smile make over.
We aim to offer you a full range of whitening treatments, tailored to meet your individual requirements. We provide a number of treatments, including home/tray based tooth whitening and internal tooth whitening. This allows you – based on the recommendation from our dental professionals – to make an informed decision.

Fail to Attend Policy
Once an appointment has been made at the practice it is the patient’s responsibility to keep that appointment. If you cannot keep the appointment then we ask for a minimum of 24 hours notice to re-schedule. If a patient Does Not Attend twice (or does not give us 24 hours notice) we reserve the right to close any open treatment plan which may result in a further charge if the patient is re-accepted. When 2 DNA’s (or late cancellations) happen the patient has a ‘STOP’ placed on their record and they then must contact the Practice Manager to give their reasons to be re-accepted.
