Hygiene & Preventative Fees
Routine, Full mouth scale removal and polish £ 70
This appointment generally takes 30 minutes.
Our hygienist may recommend a further session either 1, 3, 6, or 12 monthly
This appointment takes 60 minutes and may involve the use of a local anaesthetic and antibiotic gel application (Dentomycin) for deeper more intensive cleaning. Our hygienist will liaise with your treating dentist to ensure that your treatment plan is developed to help prevent further disease progress.
Periodontal disease critically is crafty by nature so it is important to make review appointments to reassess its progress and ensure the homecare and treatment regime is working.
Restorative (fillings) Fees
Sometimes it is necessary to intervene and repair a broken tooth or remove decay and fill a cavity. We use the latest non-mercury containing white filling materials for good reason. They are strong, have an adhesive seal and many have a fluoride base that prevents further decay.
Your long term health is important to us so we do not use amalgam or mercury fillings in our practice.

Routine Endodontic Treatment
On occasion it is necessary to remove infected pulpal tissue, sterilise then refill the deeper aspect of a tooth. This treatment is complex in nature and its success is very technique and time dependant. Our dentists use the latest endodontic instruments and techniques to ensure a pain free procedure that gives the tooth its very best long term prognosis.
Our endodontic fees are based on the cost of providing a standard of care we feel is right for you without compromise. Following Department Health cross infection control guidelines we use single use endodontic files for your protection.
Complex Molar tooth
(1 x 30 minute & 1 x 45 minute appointments)
(2 x 45 minute appointments)
(2 x 1 hour appointments)
These times are approximate

Crowns and Ceramic (Treatment involving the use of independent technicians)
There are many ways to restore a heavily damaged or poorly aesthetic tooth. Our experience will help to identify the most appropriate technique to individually tailor your treatment plant.
Paul Brown, the practice principal, undertakes the most complex restorative procedures involving multiple unit applications. These may involve a combination of Crowns, Porcelain Veneers and Bridge work. Single unit restorations and more straight forward cases are often undertaken by our associate dentists at reduced fee rates.
Metal Free Ceramics
These materials give the best aesthetic appearance closely matching natural teeth in terms of colour balance and translucence. They are also the best material for gum health. They do not have the black margin sometimes seen in traditional old style crowns. The multi-million euro factory, Nobel Bio-care, which produces these components, uses a computer generated image of the tooth shape to ‘mill’ a bespoke, fit perfect, super strength crown base to which highest quality (Japanese) porcelain is hand crafted and fired to give fantastic aesthetic pleasing tooth like crowns.
Quality denture making is a highly skilled and technical procedure. We believe denture making to be a particular strength of Paul Brown’s practice.
