A decayed tooth is when a tooth has become infected with bacteria. If the infection is not removed then it can lead to extensive damage sometimes involving painful abscesses and tooth removal.
The hole created in a tooth as a result of tooth decay is known as a “cavity”. This needs to be restored. A variety of dental materials including porcelain or tooth-colored filled resins can be used to restore the tooth back to its entirety.
Tooth decay (sometimes also known as Caries) is a common dental problem that requires treatment. Antibiotics do not treat this infection and are ineffective until the infection runs deep into softer tissues. Complex treatment is then needed to contain and treat the situation.
If you have teeth that visibly look unsightly and dark it may be due to caries and breakdown. We can help you to restore your teeth back to health and re-enhance your smile.
Prior to considering your teeth for any corrective improvements, we will remove any dental decay from your teeth and restore your teeth accordingly. The long-term health of your teeth is of the utmost importance and hence it is vital these teeth are free of dental decay.
Any solution recommended will be based upon creating a healthy foundation for your teeth, gums, and smile. In this way, we will be able to achieve ultimate enhancement, a beautiful smile and healthy teeth.

I have been visiting Perfect Smile for couple years for on going treatment including implants and Veneers. I developed an abscess over Christmas Holiday with a fever where I passed out on my kitchen floor. I did email Gurs not expecting him to reply within an hour or so (especially it being the festive season) Gurs suggested I should get to the hospital to get antibiotics and emergency dentist next day. Gurs kept in touch daily to check on my welfare. A week later I was well enough to travel from Norfolk to Perfect Smile. The following week Negan did root canal. The team are first class, who make you welcome and always asking if I would like a drink. The treatment has cost me thousands. Money well spent!! I now have The Perfect Smile.

Composite veneers cost less than other veneers and require little or no tooth preparation at all. Have your veneers fitted in as little as one appointment.
