No, if the majority of your upper or lower teeth are in good condition, our Toothcare professional dentist will attempt to restore your natural teeth first to save you time and money.

Am I awake or asleep during the procedure?

In most situations the procedure is performed under general anaesthetic where you are completely asleep, or IV Sedation where you are in a twilight state. Our professional in-house anaesthetist will ensure quality, comfort and safety while performing your sedation or general anaesthetic.
