Why choose Private Dentistry?

Some of the most modern and advanced treatments in dentistry are not always available on the NHS service, especially cosmetic or aesthetic treatments or treatments such as implants.

The NHS provides an excellent and high quality service but the affordable nature of the NHS limits it to certain treatments and the maintenance of basic dental health.

Private dentistry not only offers different, more advanced options it provides the patient with the opportunity to have a more treatment time with the dentist and a more relaxed experience.

Popular Treatments

Why is Private Dental Treatment more expensive than NHS treatment?

It is partly due to the extra time that is allocated to treatment visits.

In addition many private treatments such as tooth coloured fillings and aesthetic tooth coloured crowns and bridges use more sophisticated and therefore generally more expensive materials.

These treatments often require a higher level of clinical skill and the work of a highly skilled dental technician.

The dentist will often work very closely with the dental technician to achieve these excellent outcomes.
