Dental bridge treatment offers a natural-looking solution to replace missing teeth, restoring smiles and improving functionality. Conventional bridges consisting of crowns and false teeth, often needing a reshaping of the adjacent teeth. Adhesive bridges involve little and sometimes no preparation, so are a more conservative treatment modality. Each design has it's advantages and disadvatages. Your dentist will discuss suitability.

Restorative materials have structural and aesthetic limitations. Large restorations may not endure the forces placed upon them, and fail. Crowns fit neatly over unsightly or broken teeth, providing complete coverage and restoring strength, shape and appearance. They offer a structural and aesthetic solution for broken, decayed or discoloured teeth, or those with large fillings. Crowns are often recommended on root canal-treated teeth to improve longevity.

Dentures, whether partial or full, are removable false teeth offering numerous benefits. Aesthetically, they can restore confidence with a natural smile, enhance facial shape helping support the lips and cheeks. Functionally, they can improve chewing and phonetics. Since they are not fixed, they do have limitations. Implants can help, improving stability and functionality.

Root Canal Treatments

Root canal treatment is a highly skilled procedure where the pulp is carefully removed, and the canal system cleaned, disinfected, shaped and sealed. This is usually completed in one or two visits, depending on the condition of the tooth and personal circumstances.

Periodontal Treatments

Periodontics is a branch of dentistry focusing on the health of your gums, ligaments and the bone supporting your teeth, collectively known as the periodontium. The most common periodontal treatment is treating periodontal (gum) disease. Left untreated, tooth loss is a common sequelae. Other treatments include sculpting the gum line where excess gum tissue is present in a "gummy" smile, as well as covering exposed roots on teeth with gum recession, protecting the vulnerable roots from decay and improving the aesthetics

Patient Reviews

"THIS practise is the ONLY practise ANYONE should go to!!!"

As far as I am concerned … THIS practise is the ONLY practise ANYONE should go to!!! Vinny is awesome and has put my fear and lack of confidence squarely on the back burner. The receptionists are so helpful and understanding and the dental nursing staff the first I’ve met with a sense of humour. Thank you guys … you’ve restored my faith in myself xx

Having been put in touch with Cox & Hitchcock for an emergency dentist I cannot express enough how great a practise they are. NHS funded! Reception staff were brilliant and the Dentist exceptional.

All treatment plans will be discussed with you at the examination appointment, along with associated costs.

Complex treatments, may need multiple visits to complete the investigations needed prior to providing an estimate. This will be printed at reception, or if preferred emailed to you.

Please look at our Fees page for more details.

See Our Treatment Fees

How soon can I be treated?

Our waiting times for an NHS examination and treatment appointments, for new and historic patients, vary. Our reception team will happily update you on current waiting times.

The NHS contract funds a set amount of dental activity for the year and we are obliged to deliver this evenly over the twelve months.

The level of NHS funding provided  is not high enough to enable us to meet the demand for NHS care that exists.

These factors lead to long waiting times to access NHS care.

Private care can be provided at all times with a minimal wait.

Your dentist will be happy to go through all available options including that of accessing some treatment options on a private basis alongside an NHS course of treatment.

Am I entitled to free treatment?


Patients do not have to pay any NHS dental charges for a course of treatment if, on the first day of treatment, they are:

  • Under 18 years of age
  • Aged 18 and in full-time education
  • An expectant mother
  • A woman who has had a baby in the previous 12 months


Patients do not have to pay any NHS dental charges for a course of treatment if they or their partner are currently receiving:

  • Income Support (Incapacity benefit and Disability Living Allowance does NOT count)
  • Income based Jobseeker’s Allowance (Contribution-based does NOT count)
  • Income-related Employment & Support Allowance (Contribution-related does NOT count)
  • Pension Credit guarantee credit (Savings Credit on its own does NOT count)
  • Universal Credit (in the last assessment period there were no earnings, or earnings were within the allowed limit, please check at

Patients can be exempt from paying if they have a valid NHS low income scheme certificate HC2 for full help. Payment can be reduced if they are named on a valid HC3 certificate.

It is impotant the information you give us is contemporary and accurate.If you are unsure if you are exempt from NHS dental charges, please discuss with reception.

What’s the difference between NHS and Private?

NHS dental care will help you secure and maintain oral health provides a basic level of dental care. Fees are set by the Department of Health and will be the same with every practice with a contract to provide NHS dentistry.

The NHS does not provide any cosmetic treatments such as  tooth coloured fillings in posterior teeth, bleaching and certain types of crowns. Check-ups and periodontal care are bound by certain criteria. Your dentist is required to reassess how often you should attend. Appointments are made when available. We are contracted each year, at each individual practice, to see a number of historic patients (those that have attended for an examination within a set number of years) as well as a number of new patients. Funding of each practice varies, which also determines NHS treatment availability. We are obliged to spread that work throughout the year; this can result in longer waiting times for NHS care. Please also be aware, your examination recall for NHS treatment is determined by disease presentation at your examination visit, and is set using Welsh Assembly Government guidelines.

Private dental care at our practices provides all treatment options and will make all advanced and cosmetic treatment options available to you, giving you a larger choice of treatment options.

Our team will be happy to discuss these options with you during any consultation.

All of our dentists are committed to postgraduate education and continued professional development.

This additional experience reflects our level of commitment to high clinical standards.

Early morning and evening appointments are available for your convenience. Items requiring laboratory work will be carried out by the most experienced technicians using the best quality materials. Your treatment will be prioritised and completed as soon as possible.

All work is guaranteed within reason for 12 months, unless you have been informed by your dentist, on a like for like basis, with the exception of some private treatment which can be guaranteed for up to 5 years or longer.

How can I join the Practice?
