Attending regular check-up appointments is by far the best way to stay on top of your oral health. A typical check-up involves a short examination of your teeth, mouth, and gums to ensure that everything is looking nice and healthy.
A dental check-up is a great addition to your oral health routine and will ensure that any potential problems are dealt with before they have a chance to develop. Although our dental team is extremely capable and experienced, it’s always best to prevent dental issues rather than treat them.Find out more
During your check-up, it may become clear that you require some fillings. A filling is a standard dental procedure used to repair cracks or fissures in the tooth and prevent harmful bacteria from getting inside.
Fillings are long-lasting preventative measures that reduce the need for root canal treatments or urgent dental care. Getting a filling is straightforward – only requiring one or two appointments at Smile Chic.Find out more
Inlays And Onlays
Inlays and onlays are used to preserve teeth that have more significant decay. Unlike a dental crown, inlays and onlays do not require the removal of part of the tooth and will maintain the majority of the tooth structure.
When a filling is not going to be sufficient to patch over the decay, an inlay or onlay is usually the next best thing.
This method is typically used for treating teeth towards the back of the jaw since they are the most susceptible to decay. Like fillings, this process is not particularly complex and will only require a handful of appointments to complete.Find out more
A dental crown is a cap that goes over a damaged tooth to restore its strength and functionality. A dental crown fitting is sometimes combined with a root canal procedure to ensure that the tooth below the crown is in the best possible condition.
The crown will be constructed from an accurate impression of your tooth, taken using our state-of-the-art equipment. Whilst your crown is being crafted (which takes up to three weeks), you’ll be given a temporary acrylic crown to keep your teeth feeling great and looking healthy.Find out more
Root Canal Treatment
Our general dental practice also performs root canal treatments. If there is significant decay to a tooth, a root canal procedure is often the best course of action, as it allows you to avoid the full extraction of a tooth.
Although this process might sound scary, they are really nothing to be worried about! Root canal procedures are painless and are completed in a single appointment. Decayed teeth usually need urgent care, but root canal treatments can prevent the need for any drastic action.Find out more

Frequently asked questions
Dental Services FAQs
How often should I visit the dentist?
It is recommended that adults and children should attend a dental check-up once every six months. This time frame allows our dentists to catch any oral problems before they become more serious, as well as to generally keep track of dental health.
Of course, if you’re having ongoing dental treatment, then it’s likely that you’ll be visiting your practitioner much more often than this. In addition, any emergency dental care that you need should be booked in immediately.
Routine dental care is the best way to ensure good oral health. It’s all too easy to neglect to visit a dentist, but this can have significant negative impacts in the long run. Prevention is better than cure when it comes to oral health, especially concerning tooth decay and gum disease.
Are root canal treatments painful?
Root canal treatment is a standard procedure that involves treating an infection in the centre of a tooth. This process should not be painful, but you might feel some discomfort for a few days following your appointment.
A root canal treatment is one of the best alternatives to a full tooth extraction and can often save the tooth from being removed completely. It’s common practice to apply a dental crown to the tooth after it has been treated.
Many people believe that a root canal operation will be painful, but this is thankfully not the case. If you have any concerns about the procedure, our caring dental team will discuss the process with you and put you at ease before starting any work.
How long do dental fillings last?
On average, dental fillings last between 10 and 15 years. This variation comes from the different materials used in the process and other factors such as your eating habits. When a filling eventually breaks, the procedure to replace it is simple.
To help your fillings last longer, the best thing you can do is brush your teeth thoroughly twice a day. In addition, after getting a filling, you should try and avoid sugary or sticky foods. Very hot food and drink can also soften new fillings and cause them to come loose.
