i. Teeth Whitening
We use Enlighten one of the best whitening systems available. Since October 2012 the EU directive has judge it illegal to use whitening gels which has more than 16% carbamide peroxide. It is also illegal for any one outside the dental profession to sell tooth whitening products.

ii. Orthodontic treatment
Are you ashamed of your poorly positioned front teeth. Don’t compromise with veneers, rather position your own teeth in the ideal position and have a smile that can last a life time.
Dr Ronette Goosen has 10 years of orthodontic experience. Gaining her experience in North Stafford Hospital's orthodontic department and continuing her education at Whitefield Orthodontic Centre, means you can now get beautiful straight teeth without compromise.

Unfortunately our gums do recede in time consequently the veneer margins can show in the future. You can chip a veneer if you grind your teeth or bite into a hard objects.
