A smile can change everything
Your confidence. Your outlook. Your life. And with Invisalign, achieving the smile you always dreamed of doesn’t have to be a big deal. In fact, it barely has to impact your day-to-day life at all.
Invisalign straightens teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made specifically for your teeth. As you replace each aligner every two weeks, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week, gradually moving towards the projected final position.
Comfortable, clear and removable – Invisalign transforms your smile without disrupting your life. Something that over 2.5 million people worldwide have already discovered.

Dental implants have many advantages compared to traditional crown and bridge solutions.
- They look, feel and function like your natural teeth
- Healthy teeth do not need to be ground down to support the dental implants
- Anchoring dental implants in the jawbone stimulates bone tissue and gums, ensuring an attractive, aesthetic result while helping to maintain facial structures
- Dental implants do not require any adhesives to hold the new teeth in place
- They eliminate the discomfort and insecurity of loose, ill-fitting dentures
- You have a secure, permanent tooth replacement
Mark is competent at restoring existing implants and also has experience of placing new implants where teeth have been recently extracted.

At Abbey Dental we offer 2 types of tooth whitening procedures which can be used alone or in conjunction with each other.
In surgery whitening - after about 90 mins of treatment at Abbey Dental you will leave with noticeably whiter teeth.
At home whitening - impressions are taken of your teeth and transparent whitening trays are made to perfectly fit over your teeth. A small amount of whitening gel can then be applied into the trays which are worn overnight. The process can be repeated each night until your teeth reach the desired shade, (typically 2 weeks). This has the advantage that you can 'top up' your tooth whitening at a later date.
See our analysis of tooth whitening processes - 'Hollywood Smile'
With our dental WAND anaesthesia you might not even know you’ve had an injection - that’s why some patients say “I didn’t feel a thing”. With reduced numbness of the tongue, cheek and lips, you can return to your busy schedule able to drink and smile.
