Our Lovely hygienists are the key to keeping your mouth healthy and your smile gleaming. We find that a regular hygienist visit means that your teeth and gums need less maintenance over time. We also understand the link between gum disease, heart disease and diabetes, and we strive to make sure your gum health is well looked after.
We use the latest in natural white filling materials that blends in with your teeth and enhances your smile The fillings are bonded (glued) in with the latest technology to ensure they look great and function well for years to come.
A crown or Onlay is a cover that is placed over a tooth and held in place by dental adhesive or cement. Crowns and onlays can be made from a variety of materials. We choose the strongest and most natural looking so that they can harmonise with the mouth. We make sure to choose the most minimally invasive material in order to protect your tooth.
A bridge is a method of replacing a missing tooth. It involves using the teeth adjacent to a gap as a support for the replacement of a missing tooth. There are various types of bridge, and we adopt all the different types based on which I best for our patients. This can range from trimming the supporting teeth for a crown-like support to simply sticking a prosthetic tooth to the supporting tooth.
Dentures are surprisingly common, and are removable false teeth which are used to replace missing teeth. They can either replace a few teeth or the complete set of teeth. Though implants are the more modern method of replacing teeth, sometimes they may not be appropriate. In these instances, there are removable prosthetic teeth which can be made out of a variety of different materials to suit each patient’s needs.
Root canal treatment involves the removal of the pulp tissues from the tooth in the event that it gets infected or inflamed. Removal of the infected or inflamed pulp is the first step in saving the tooth. Debris within the canals is removed by flushing with an anti-bacterial solution. The canals are finally filled or sealed and the tooth restored to full shape and function by either a permanent filling or a crown.
Porcelain (tooth coloured) inlays and onlays are restorations placed usually on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. An inlay fits within the confines of the teeth. An onlay covers the entire chewing surface of the tooth. These can be made of either plastic resin or porcelain.
The procedure involves removing decayed tooth structure or old fillings, preparing the tooth cavity, taking an impression of the cavity to fabricate a custom-fit inlay or onlay. Two visits are required to complete the treatment.
“Outstanding service provided by Dr Collie Moran and his team. I had a ceramic crown and it has been done perfectly and efficiently. Barbara and Raymond are also very professional and customer service oriented. It’s been a long time I didn’t feel so comfortable in a dental practice and I’d definitely come back now regularly. You can trust them and always find answers to all your questions and doubts about the treatment and the products they use."
“It was with some intrepidation that I booked at a new dentist, I needn’t have worried however. From the moment I arrive, I'm made to feel relaxed and welcome by Ray at the front desk. The care provided is excellent. Having now had a couple of visits I would certainly recommend Dr Britto and Putney Hill Dental to anyone looking for a dentist - excellent all round."
“Wonderful, friendly, professional service, a very big thank you to Dr Moran and his staff. I was made to feel very comfortable. I completely trust his judgement and would recommend the dental practice to my family and friends without any doubt. Thanks again!"
“A first class dental practice. Dr Collie Moran has carried out extensive work on my teeth, including crowns and a wisdom tooth extraction and is always highly professional and diligent in what he does. One of the most important factors for me is that I completely trust Collie’s judgement. He always explains dental options to you in a considered and balanced manner. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this practice to others - in fact, I consider myself very fortunate to have this quality of dental practice available to me locally. Collie is also well supported by an excellent team so there is much strength in depth at this practice. Highly recommended."
“Really recommend this practice - the hygienist gave me a thorough clean and now my teeth are sparkling! I had some staining from drinking too many cuppas and she really took the time to make sure it was all gone. She also gave me some good tips for taking care of my teeth. Raymond on the desk was also lovely and welcoming! Great experience."
“I have been a patient of Collie’s for around eighteen years and I can’t recommend him more highly. He is super with nervous patients and very reassuring. I have had various treatments over the years and he is always gentle and skillful. Barbara is an excellent hygienist too."
“Collie and Barbara are both gentle and super efficient. Been a patient for two years now and always happy with my service. Sometimes a struggle to get in so book early but a testament to a great job. Both give really good advice and suggestions without being pushy."
