General & Family Dentistry
At Giffnock Village Dental Care you have the choice of NHS or Private Treatment. You can be registered as an NHS patient but you don’t have to opt for NHS treatment. If you would like a more cosmetic look, e.g. a white filling rather than an NHS silver filling, just ask! Please note NHS treatments are only available to existing NHS registered patients.
There are various filling materials on the market. The NHS standard is amalgam on a posterior tooth. Ask your dentist for more options.
Dentures come in all shapes and sizes. The standard NHS acrylic denture can look very good but there are less bulky options, ask your dentist for more information.
Crowns & Bridges
Crowns & Bridges are available on the NHS. If you want a more cosmetic look, metal free Crowns & Bridges are available privately.
If you have had an abscess, Root Treatment may prevent the tooth from being extracted.
Veneers are a thin layer of porcelain that cover the front surface of a front tooth. They can be used to improve the look of heavily filled teeth. Privately, they can be used to improve the look of crooked or discoloured teeth.
Sometimes a tooth just needs extracted, but there are many ways of filling that gap. Options include Dentures, Bridges or Dental Implants.
