Our practice on St James Road offers deep cleaning in the form of root scaling and planing, which is essential for keeping horrible conditions like gum disease at bay.
If you suffer from gum disease, you must visit us every three months to reverse and control the condition.
For patients without gum disease, a hygiene appointment is required every six months.
Your first hygiene appointment will cost £95. However, your next session is discounted, meaning you’ll only spend £65 moving forward. For an additional £25, receive AirFLOW to brighten your smile and remove surface stains.

Our hygienists and dental nurses, like Michelle Perry, are the gatekeepers to the world of amazing oral health.
“Allowing plaque to build up on teeth and turn into tartar (calculus) is never favourable.”
“We once had a patient who avoided coming to us for years and suffered from advanced gum disease. The tartar buildup was masking her receding gums and black triangular pockets, and she was scared after we remove the plaque, her teeth would visibly look worse.
However, she didn’t know that the tartar and plaque build-up would keep eating away at her gums until they completely pulled away from the teeth.
Black triangles (pockets) between teeth are a huge fear, but we can treat this cosmetically. We cannot regrow gums, so treatment, in the end, was her best option for improving her condition and the appearance of her smile.”
Patients must be aware that gum disease, left untreated, causes significant, unrepairable damage to the gums, which can eventually lead to tooth loss.
If you experience frequent problems with your gums, such as bleeding while brushing, redness and swelling, discomfort, or bad breath, we recommend you undergo regular gum hygiene treatments.
Our dental hygienist, Michele Perry, can carry out professional cleanings to reduce the signs and symptoms of gum issues, typically starting with a scale and polish.
“I’ve attended The Smile Gallery for several years and am very happy with its services. All the staff are friendly, and the hygienist and dentists have given me a lot of useful tips to help me look after my teeth & gums better. The recent refresh of the rooms has given the place a welcoming and comforting atmosphere, unlike the dentists I remember from my youth!” Andrew, RH18
