Feeling confident about yourself and your appearance can affect your life a huge amount. The way you conduct yourself, how you are perceived socially and professionally are all affected by your dental appearance. We offer a full range of Dental and cosmetic options from a simple white filling to a full smile makeover. We are conveniently situated in central York and would be happy to discuss your dental options.

Family Dentistry and Prevention

Prevention is the backbone of all Dentistry. The major cause of tooth loss in adult patients is gum disease, so effective oral hygiene is vital in order to keep your teeth and gums in optimum condition. It is extremely important to ensure the correct maintenance of any Dental work. It keeps your smile whiter and your breath fresh.

Scaling and polishing removes surface stains and tartar build-up. More importantly our Dental team will show you how to look after your own teeth. This way you can avoid future fillings and gum problems and hopefully keep your own teeth for life.

We advise bringing children to the Dentist as soon as possible. This encourages a familiarisation with the Dentist and will hopefully reduce any anxiety problems when they are older. It is extremely important we encourage young children to look after their teeth from an early age and help establish a healthy routine which will minimise their need for Dental treatment in the future.

We look forward to helping you and your family maintain a healthy dentition.

Aesthetic Smile Makeovers

A smile makeover can transform your smile in as little as two weeks and is an excellent solution for worn, discoloured, chipped or misaligned teeth. We can undertake a full smile assessment and discuss the various treatment options available to you. Sometimes minimal intervention is the best course of treatment and we are able to offer the latest technology in tooth preservation, something we at Castlegate take very seriously.

We can make a huge improvement in the appearance of your teeth using the latest techniques available. Dr Nigel Kirk has a Masters Degree in Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry and is an Examiner in that subject. He can assess your smile aesthetically and discuss with you any available options.
