Welcome to the home of Dental Technicians

Finding the right Dental Technicians has never been easier

We believe that you should have all the information before considering any dental treatment, and this is why we sit down after every clinical examination and discuss the findings or discuss what improvements you would like to make to your smile, and we can help you choose the right treatment for yourself.

Invisible Braces: Straighten your teeth, without anyone knowing you are having treatment – This treatment is ideal for those adults who wouldn’t wear braces because of the way they look

Teeth Whitening: With so many people providing cheap and ineffective teeth whitening, its difficult to know who to trust. Our teeth whitening solutions are tried and tested, and very affordable

Porcelain Veneers: Porcelain Veneers are the Rolls Royce of cosmetic dentistry, if you are looking for completely natural and stunning, long lasting results, then this might be the treatment for you

Composite Veneers: Composite Veneers can be placed in one day, and look almost as good as porcelain veneers, and are more cost effective

Dental Implants: If you are missing one or more teeth, then a dental implant may be the best way forward, they are generally regarded as the best solution for a missing tooth.

Keeping your mouth clean is very important for the following reasons:

Maintains healthy gums, and therefore you keep your natural teeth longer
Reduces tooth decay
Keeps teeth looking whiter
Reduces bad breath
To do a really good job of cleaning your teeth, gums, tongue and palate, you need to spend time, and use more than just your toothbrush and toothpaste.

Your primary objective should be to remove plaque, which is the soft stuff that builds up on teeth, and produces harmful toxins that silently destroy the gums around your teeth.

Tooth brushing
Electric toothbrushes are better than manual brushes. We always recommend Oral B electric toothbrushes, as the brush head is small, and the motion is the best to remove plaque at the gum level.

If you use a regular brush, you should aim the bristles 45 degrees toward the gum and use small round movements to sweep the gum line clean.

Always start on one side, and concentrate on brushing each and every tooth, individually, all the way to the other side.

Do the outside first, then the inside, then the top.

If your gums bleed, don’t worry, it means you have been missing areas in the past. If anything, concentrate more on the areas which bleed.

The most common areas for people to not brush effectively are:

The inside surface of the bottom teeth and the very back of the top teeth.
Remember to brush your tongue, as this is an area where bacteria grow and can give you bad breath.
Dental Floss
No matter how good your brushing technique is, you will never effectively clean in-between the teeth if you do not floss or use tepe brushes.

To use floss, roll a length of floss around your ring fingers, and use your first fingers to direct it to the right place.

Push the floss between the contact of two teeth, then move it against one of the teeth, and slide it out, against that tooth.

Then do the same, in the same contact point, but pull out against the other side tooth.

This needs to be done in every contact point, every day; otherwise harmful bacteria will build up between the teeth.


Mouthwashes do not actually remove plaque, contrary to what the adverts say.

They do, however smell nice, and quite often contain Fluoride, which helps strengthen teeth. You should try and use a mouthwash twice a day, once in the morning and once at lunchtime.

For the best advice custom to your mouth, its best to come and visit one of our dentists and they will be able to advise you.
