Welcome to Parkfield Dental

Welcome to Parkfield Dental, a general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry and dental implant centre based in Didsbury, South Manchester. With over 30 years’ of experience under our belt, here at Parkfield Dental we pride ourselves on our ability to provide the best specialist dental care out there. 

Having built a reputation based upon our top quality care, we combine state of the art technology and treatments with a relaxed and welcoming environment. All of our staff want to make your visit as comfortable as they can. Not everybody finds coming to the dentist easy, so we will always listen to you and give you as much time as you need to talk about your dental health, fears, and worries, before we administer any treatment. 

All of our treatment rooms are equipped with the latest in dental technology. From CEREC (same day crowns), intra-oral cameras, and instantly processed digital x-rays, to all the most cutting edge dental methods and practices, we make sure that all of our patients have access to the best treatments for their oral health. 

Based in Didsbury, we treat patients coming from all over Manchester and Cheshire and from regional destinations such as Birmingham and London. Our treatments are wide-ranging, from general dentistry, dental hygiene treatments, composite bonding, from dental veneers and teeth whitening, to dental implants and bridges. We excel in patient care service, and pride ourselves on the way we treat our patients.

Our Treatments:

Dental Implants

If you’re missing one tooth, several teeth, or suffer from loose teeth, our dental implants could solve your problem. We offer a free initial assessment, after which we examine your teeth in more detail and plan your treatment. Once the implants have been placed, we will fix the crowns, bridges or dentures to the implant. 

Our dental implant restorations are more secure than traditional dentures, they look and feel like natural teeth, and they are designed to preserve your facial and jawbone structure. With the right maintenance carried out by our expert dental hygienists, our implants can last for years. 

If you’re missing one tooth, a dental implant and a crown will be able to replace it. If you’re in need of a full jaw rehabilitation, we can also offer you ‘same day teeth’, which is a full arch dental bridge that can support up to 4 or 6 implants, commonly known as the all-on-4 or all-on-6 concept.  

Orthodontics

We provide Invisalign, a treatment that continues to grow in popularity thanks to its near-invisible aligners. Having helped correct over 5 million smiles, Invisalign braces are proven to improve your smile and confidence. Invisalign improves a number of orthodontic issues such as crowded teeth, overbites and crossbite. Patients will swap their aligners roughly every two weeks, and you can change them from home. 

Once we’ve gone through everything and confirmed that you’re eligible, we’ll begin the process of taking extensive photos, X-rays and digital scans, or a dental impression of your teeth. You’ll get to see a 3D simulation of your treatment before you even start. You’ll visit us around every 6-8 weeks so that we can monitor your progress and give you your new aligners. Once your treatment is over, we’ll give you the retainers you’ll need so that you can maintain your beautiful new smile. 

6 Month Smile has taken the best aspects of traditional braces and made improvements to give you a straighter, healthier smile in only six months. Every brace we make is bespoke, unique to you and your orthodontic needs, achieving the best results, at a much faster rate. Delighting clients of all ages, this revolutionary technique has encouraged them to fix an issue that may have been bothering them for much of their lives. 

The 6 Month Smile is a specialised brace system that uses tooth-coloured wires and brackets to create a discreet look that minimises their visibility. Throughout your treatment, you’ll return to the practice  so that we can check your progress and tooth movement. We’ll tighten your brace when needed to make sure you stay on track for a fast and simple realignment process! 

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are the go to solution for those looking for a Hollywood smile! Used by a large number of film and TV personalities, porcelain veneers are a great, cost-effective option for improving chipped or crooked teeth, stained or discoloured teeth, gapped teeth and more. 

Dental veneers are wafer-thin shells that your dentist will bond to the surface of your teeth. Matched to your teeth colour, your veneers will help you achieve a more natural smile. Popular among patients, veneers are easily applied while still managing to make a huge improvement to your smile. 

The procedure is very simple and the amount of enamel removed is kept to a minimum. Your dentist will make an impression of your teeth and send it over to the dental technician, who will then create your bespoke and natural dental veneers! 

Tooth Whitening

Our home whitening kits are perfect for anyone wanting to achieve whiter teeth in the comfort and convenience of their own home, while also having the safety and supervision of our expert dentists. You will need two or three visits to the dentist before they take impressions of your teeth and make you your own unique whitening tray. This is so that your dentist can assess your suitability and make sure that the teeth whitening experience is right for you. 

Once you have your tray, your dentist will talk you through the process. The tray is made with soft, clear plastic onto which you will then apply the whitening gel. The active ingredient is usually hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. As oxygen gets into the enamel of your teeth, the colour becomes lighter. 

The entire treatment is often completed within two to four weeks. If you feel self-conscious about your discoloured teeth, our teeth whitening kits are an easy and cost-effective way of giving your smile a lift. If you want a brighter, whiter smile then this is the treatment for you. 

New Patients: What Can You Expect At Parkfield Dental?

You might be nervous about coming to the dentist. A lot of people are, and we understand your concerns. Even if you don’t feel apprehensive when visiting the dentist, coming to a new practice can be daunting.

Nothing is more satisfying to the team here than seeing new patients leave happy and assured, having had a good experience and happy to return again.

Your Consultation And Dental Treatment

We make sure that every new patient to Parkfield Dental receives a thorough initial consultation so that we can accurately and clearly assess your needs. This is a crucial step in ensuring that you receive a bespoke treatment plan designed unique for you. We’ll have an extensive look at your teeth and make sure that we don’t miss anything. During your first appointment we’ll check your teeth for decay, unhealthy gums and any problems you might have with crowns or fillings. You’ll also be screened for oral cancer. 

You might come to Parkfield with a particular sense about what you want for your teeth. Whether it’s restorative dentistry to fix a problem that’s been plaguing you for a while, or cosmetic dentistry to get that smile you’ve always dreamed of, we’ll consult you throughout the process to help you find the perfect plan. 

Our dental services are wide-ranging, covering both cosmetic and general dentistry treatments. From implants and root canals, to dental veneers and orthodontics, we offer some of the best dental care in the Greater Manchester area from our home in Didsbury. We also offer anti-snoring and sleep apnoea treatments. 

Every dentist and member of the clinical staff here at Parkfield are registered with the General Dental Council. The General Dental Council is a national regulator that ensures high standards are maintained in dentistry. The team here also includes members of prestigious dental associations such as the Royal College of Surgeons and the International College of Dentists.

That’s why we’re able to specialise in a number of different techniques and treatments, offering advice and care of the highest quality with every treatment we offer.

A Parkfield Dental Smile Makeover

We know that people can feel very self conscious about their smile. It’s one of the defining features of your face, and it helps to communicate how we feel and what we’re thinking. Your smile is one of the most unique things about you, and that’s why it’s important. 

Here at Parkfield Dental, there’s not much we love more than helping a patient to find their perfect smile. The fact is that not many of us are lucky enough to have been born with a perfect smile. Given the chance, most of us would probably change something about our smile, whether it be gaps, or crooked or missing teeth. 

That’s why we love providing our unique smile makeovers. When a patient finishes one of our smile makeover treatment plans with a beautiful smile that they love, we feel like we’ve helped that person achieve something special. Having a smile that you love and are proud of is a wonderful thing. But what exactly is a smile makeover? 

A Parkfield Dental smile makeover is a bespoke dental treatment unique to each patient. It improves your smile through the use of cosmetic dentistry techniques, such as: 

When you decide on a smile makeover, we’ll give you an initial consultation so that together we can plan your dental treatment. If you suffer from crooked teeth, an orthodontic solution such as our Six Month Smile might be perfect for you. On the other hand, if you suffer from discolouration then veneers, composite bonding or teeth whitening might be just the thing for you. 

Achieving the perfect smile is no easy task. Sometimes it requires several treatments, which is why we offer the smile makeover. It’s designed to be a comprehensive, all-encompassing plan to give you the smile of your dreams. From dental implants and bridges, to composite bonding, crowns and fillings, we have a range of cosmetic and restorative procedures available to us. 

When you come to Parkfield Dental for your smile makeover, you’ll benefit from: 

  • A free initial cosmetic consultation for all smile makeover patients.
  • Any payment over £600 can be spread over 6-10 months.
  • Specialists in cosmetic dentistry - an experienced and dedicated team.
  • A welcoming and comfortable clinic. 
  • The latest in dentistry techniques and technology. 

Same Day Teeth In Didsbury

Teeth in a day… sound impossible? It’s not! That’s exactly what we offer here at Parkfield Dental - the Same Day Teeth treatment we offer here in Didsbury achieves just that, based on the all-on-4 or all-on-6 concept. Whereas traditional dental implants require between three and six months between placing the dental implant and the final restoration over the implant. 

How does our Same Day Teeth treatment work? Well, it involves removing all necessary teeth and placing 4-6 dental implants per arch. We’ll then secure a fixed temporary bridge onto those implants. Then, you’re ready to walk out with a fixed set of teeth the very same day!

That temporary bridge will be replaced with a permanent bridge between 3-6 months afterwards. You’ll need multiple appointments for us to check up on you and make sure that your teeth are safe and healthy. On average you might require 10-15 appointments.
