Our case of the month for December was a stunning one involving the replacement of old porcelain veneers and a dental implant crown for a front tooth. Porcelain veneers are a great way to improve overall aesthetics and are considered to be the most beautiful of all dental restorations for front teeth. However, as with anything in life, they will not last forever! Replacement veneers will often be needed every 10-15 years due to normal wear and tear. There is also the issue of gum recession over time which c…
Our case of the month for September 2021 was a simply stunning one using ultra minimally invasive E max veneers. Our client disliked her front teeth composite bonding which had discoloured, worn and chipped over time. Although teeth bonding is a superb treatment, there are disadvantages compared to porcelain such as those mentioned above. Porcelain will not stain or change colour and it is far more durable than composite. However, in the past, porcelain needed considerable preparation to create space for th…
Our case of the month for February is simply incredible. As you may know, we practice minimally invasive dentistry or MI dentistry. The philosophy of this is to be as minimal as possible, preserve what nature gave use and enhance rather than destroy.
Smile design and makeovers in the past involved major destruction of the teeth. You only had to watch 'Extreme Makeover' to see how teeth were cut into little pegs and the smile transformed with porcelain veneers. Will this last a life time? We think not; simp… READ MORE

We are now well into 2015 and what better way to start the year than taking the first steps to a new smile. Our preferred smile makeover is as simple as ABC:
A is for alignment- straighten teeth using discreet or invisible braces
B is for bleaching- whiten teeth using or brand new Philips LED whitening system
C is for cosmetic bonding- create symmetry by bonding the latest cosmetic composites to uneven edges, short or fractured teeth
This technique is totally NON INVASIVE! We do not need to drill your t… READ MORE
Cosmetic dentistry has come a long way in recent years. Long gone are the days of teeth needing to be drilled to stumps for porcelain veneers or crowns to improve your smile. (In our opinion anyway!)
We believe in and working with biology to produce stunning results that are natural, healthy, aesthetic and easy to maintain. An even greater advantage is that these treatments are cheaper than the conventional destructive techniques! What could be better?
If you have chipped, uneven, worn, spaced or asymmetr… READ MORE
At Progressive Dentistry, we are advocates of non invasive treatment to produce the very best results. We believe that treatments kind to the teeth and gums will produce longer lasting, natural results yet still highly aesthetic.
For example, this week in the Daily Mail, a double page spread on celebrities who have had their teeth done. This included Simon Cowell, Noel Gallagher, Cheryl Cole (sorry Fernandez Versini), Tom Cruise, David Bowie, Catherine Zeta Jones, Gordon Brown (yes, our ex Prime Minister),… READ MORE

3. Less risk of complications
4. Maintenance is simple and cost effective
5. Less costly!
6. Natural results
For example, just look at our case below with regards to a non invasive smile makeover:
This smile was created WITHOUT any drilling, any needles or injections and was entirely pain free.
