The full-service dental clinic’s updated treatments range from preventative and general dentistry to cosmetic, restorative, and emergency dental care. Led by Dr Dave Richards, it focuses on providing minimally invasive procedures, such as dental crowns, veneers, and tooth implants, to restore patients’ smiles.

As part of the update, Dr Richards now provides same-day, one-visit dental crowns. The dentist uses biomimetic dental crowns, a new technology in dental restoration, to protect, cover, and restore the shape of patients’ teeth. The procedure includes composite fillings and can be used for partial coverage or full-mouth ceramic restoration.

For patients with hard-to-remove stains and tooth discolourations, the dentist’s veneer treatment offers a quick and lasting solution to the problem. Veneers are ultra-thin porcelain coverings that are bonded to the front surface of the patient’s teeth to hide blemishes. These veneers are customised to match the patient’s specifications in terms of the size, shape, and colour of the teeth.

Unlike other tooth restoration techniques, veneers are non-invasive and require minimal dental preparation to perform. The procedure is painless and, when completed, can last for 10 to 20 years, provided good oral hygiene habits are practised. More information can be found at

Dr Richards also attends to patients with missing teeth. The dentist offers replacement options, such as dental implants, dentures, and bridges, to enhance bite, speech, and chewing functions.

Implants are a practical and permanent solution to missing teeth problems. While they are surgically placed into patients’ upper or lower jawbones, the treatment eliminates the concern most people have about dentures and their knack for slipping out of place at the most inconvenient times.

Alongside the treatments above, Dr Richards offers a range of other dental solutions, including root canal therapy, painless extractions, fillings, and comprehensive dental exams and cleanings.

A satisfied patient said, “We love Dave and his team. That’s something I never thought I’d say about a dentist. I had been avoiding dental treatment for over ten years, and Dave did his best to make every experience with a rather anxious patient (me) a pleasure. He is extremely thorough, takes a holistic approach to dental care, and communicates well, so you never feel like you don’t know what is going on. Thanks for everything, Dave.”
