Products & Services

At Dental Essence our primary philosophy is that of preservation and prevention.
We have ample experience in large cosmetic cases involving ceramic veneers, inlays, crowns and bridges, and the transformation from poorly aligned, discoloured teeth to a beautiful, straight white smile within a matter of days is something that gives us a great deal of professional satisfaction. The patients’ reaction on seeing the makeover result for the first time is an experience we never tire of seeing.

We are, however, also mindful of other considerations, such as the preservation of tooth structure, the importance of not compromising dental health and the financial costs involved. At Dental Essence we like to think that we see the bigger picture and so elect only to carry out treatment we feel is in the patient’s best long term interests: sometimes one of many treatment options is to simply to leave well alone and this is often an alternative we will suggest.

In short, we want to ensure that, before embarking on any course of dental treatment, you are familiar with all available options and so can make an informed decision about what is best for you.

Our preventive philosophy starts with our younger patients. Dental Essence is a family oriented practice and both Gareth and Andrew have many years of experience treating children. Our message is that prevention is better than cure and we try to instil good oral hygiene and dietary habits from an early age. We offer protective fissure sealants and topical fluoride applications to help achieve this end.

At Dental Essence we carry out all aspects of operative dentistry from routine fillings, crowns and root canal therapy to more complex bridges, porcelain veneers and implants. We have an excellent referral system of specialists in disciplines such as orthodontics, paedodontics and advanced oral surgery. These specialists are not only colleagues but friends so we can confidently offer you the best specialist attention with people we both know and trust-that’s reassuring for us and reassuring for you.
