As your tooth is sensitive to hot and cold food, you may need a filling

Dental exam and hygiene
At your inital check up your dentist will carry out a thorough examination of your mouth, checking all of your teeth and gums. All the latest dental technology is used to make the examination as interactive and informative as possible. Intra-oral cameras and digital xrays are used, providing a much easier diagnosis. Your dentist will discuss with you the dental treatment options available and provide you with a suggested treatment plan.
Replacing silver amalgam fillings
Amalgam fillings can be removed safely and without risk to the patient. We can replace them with white composite or ceramic. What material used depends on the size of the cavity. The final result will look exactly like a real tooth.
Root canal (Endodontics)
Root canal treatment (endodontics) is a dental procedure to treat infection at the centre of a tooth (the root canal system). The canals are thoroughly cleaned and then filled to prevent any further infection. A specialist endodontist is a dentist who has undergone specialist training to perform root canal treatment and works with special instruments to ensure even the most complicated cases are thoroughly and effectively treated.
Crown, inlay or onlay
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped sleeve made of porcelain or metal (or a combination of both) that is placed over a tooth. These may be recommended to cover a tooth to restore its shape and size, strengthen it and to improve its appearance. Crowns fit perfectly in shape, colour and texture to all the surrounding teeth. Permanent crowns can be all metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, all resin, or all ceramic.

This will improve your appearance, confidence and self esteem. Not only will your teeth look great but also will be healthier.
