Treating a Dental Emergency

You may have a regular dentist somewhere else and just need a quick solution to dental pain or discomfort. The important thing is to make you comfortable so you can then make informed decisions about your dental care without the stress of being in pain. If you have a dentist somewhere else we can liaise with them and forward your x-rays via email or print them off for you to take away along with any suggested longer term treatment plans.

This kind of pain can be a case of sensitivity due to a number of reasons. We can check this out with our digital x rays and either provide a temporary solution (temporary filling) or fluoride treatment if it is due to worn enamel.  The cost of this appointment is £95 to £170 (PLUS £15 per x-ray).

If you have a broken tooth that is just sharp we can smooth this down and if needed provide a temporary filling. The total cost of this appointment is £90.  If you would like a permananent filling a more complex case can be £184 to £284
