Their attitude toward preventative care is certainly the way forward

5 50 Dentist Consultation

I have been with Gavin and his team for 20 years, and have my dental care managed through a dental plan, recommended by Gavin. This gives me complete peace of mind with my checkups and hygienist visits.

The reception team, hygienists and Gavin are professional, highly skilled and super fun to be with. Their attitude toward preventative care is certainly the way forward.

Makes going to the dentist effortless.

The personalised care and reassurance throughout and after the process has been ‘second to none

5 50 Dental Implants, Sinus Lift

I was referred to Gavin Laidlaw at dental solutions to explore options for dental implants. From first entering the clinic the care, professionalism, skills and knowledge of the team are apparent at all levels. After having a few appointments with dental hygienist I learnt how to look after my teeth in a more appropriate way. The success of this treatment enabled a successful sinus lift to be carried out. I will admit that I was very nervous at the prospect of having this procedure done, however, the personalised care and reassurance throughout and after the process has been ‘second to none’.
The caring ethos permeates the whole clinic, Many thanks Anne.

Hi Anne, thank you so much for taking the time to pen a review, it makes a difference and helps people to find us. I am so pleased that you feel this way about the team. Gavin

I was kept fully informed of what was to happen in a friendly, calm and confident manner

5 50 CT Scan - Computed Tomography, Dental Implants, Dental Bridges • Paid: £4800

I had been fighting a losing battle for years against gum recession and bone disease. Finally, in conjunction with my dentist, I decided to have two loose teeth removed and on the recommendation of the dentist two adjacent teeth also be extracted to prevent more bone disease. The teeth were the four front lower.

The extractions and provision of a denture were done by my dentist. Unfortunately, she didn’t have the experience to carry out implants.

On the recommendation of a friend I visited Dental Solutions. The staff at the clinic were very welcoming and friendly.

The clinic arranged for CT scans and confirmed that implants could be fitted. The implants would be used to support a bridge, and be much stronger than utilising the canines.

At every stage, I was kept fully informed of what was to happen in a friendly, calm and confident manner. The fitting of the implants was virtually pain-free.

The whole process was carried out over a period of some five months, three of which were to allow the implants to bond into the bone.

I am delighted with the result. My front teeth look totally natural and of course, don’t have the problems that are usual with dentures.

Thanks to Gavin, Richard and all the staff at Dental Solutions.

I now have the smile I had only dreamt about

5 50 Dentist Consultation

5*****+ To any nervous patients out there, please carry on reading!

For the past 5 years, I have been very unhappy and self-conscious with previous work that had been carried out with different dentists. The main issue I suppose was being so nervous, having to have sedation for the slightest of treatment to be carried out. I had even resorted to hypnotism with my fear, with no result. However, I was lacking in confidence and now I had to do something.

This is where my journey started. Around 3 years ago visiting probably every dentist in Warrington, Liverpool and Manchester! The cost of treatment was not my main concern. At the end of the day, it was something I needed to have done just the once, and I needed to feel comfortable and trust whoever it was I was to choose to do my treatment needed.

So, this is where Gavin Laidlaw entered my life! I was so nervous for my first appointment, as with all I had visited. As soon as I walked through the doors to be greeted by the friendly, delightful receptionist, already put me at ease. I was then shown upstairs to the waiting room. This itself was very modern with a very relaxed atmosphere. So different from the hustle and bustle of any other waiting room. After waiting just five minutes, I was called in by one of Gavin's pleasant assistants. The first thing I noticed(Sorry Gavin!) was the beautiful calming view of the canal and boats from Gavin's windows. Again, this also helped to ease my anxiety. I was greeted by Gavin with his softy, spoken manner.

Again, this was very calming and reassuring for me. I was very fearful of getting up on the chair, Gavin himself I could tell sensed this. Therefore, Gavin let off a sympathetic, attentive vibe, putting me so much more at ease. At the end of a thorough consultation, Gavin was very professional and honest, in what would be his plan of treatment. I decided there and then, it was Gavin I wanted to help me to achieve my confident smile back.

So then my 3-month journey began. Let me mention though, it would have been quicker if I hadn't already opted for sedation. That was for the prep, then the permanent result at the end. I was so nervous, I could never attend alone for any of my appointments. Yet, as time went on, back and too, my fears and phobias started to ease. Yes, I got in the chair, a jIbbering wreck! Again, Gavin made me feel so much more relaxed. The prep work took 3 hours, but I was under sedation! The next day, I had lots of questions from the previous day(as I was sedated). I rang the surgery, and within minutes, Nikki was there to speak to and ease my worries. She was so understanding, along with Kelly and Janet who took many of my calls on reception. I felt that I really mattered, and that meant so much to me still, with my fears. Forever being reassured.

My appointments between the prep work, and the final results helped my confidence with each appointment. I was starting to relax. This, I know, was also because I had really come to trust Gavin. His work mattered. Was important to him. Which makes him as skilful as he is. When it came to the last hurdle, it would take 1 1/2 to complete. I was booked in for sedation for this. But with each of the follow-up appointments between start to finish, Gavin would try his very best to get me to do the last hurdle without sedation! Now, this did scare me! But with Gavin's softly spoken reassurance, telling me how far I had come, really did boost my confidence. So I decided to beat this and to go without the sedation.

Naturally, on the day I was very nervous. The whole of the surgery knew how bad I came to this point, but each and every one of them would go above and beyond to ease my fears. So, there I lay, for 1 1/2 hours! The tv above was a great distraction. Gavin was very attentive, explaining everything he was doing. That also put me very much at ease. Before I knew it, it was done!

The end results were far better than what I could have ever imagined. Would I look different? Talk different? Look like Rylan?

With Gavin's skilful, professional work, they couldn't have looked any more natural! I actually cried with happiness! I was so proud of myself, with Gavin and his amazing team's constant reassurance, I had got to the point I had where it came to the dentist. Never would I have thought I would have achieved what I have. Gavin's caring ways even beat the hypnotism I had!

I cannot begin to thank Gavin and his amazing team, to get me to where I have. The constant reassurance, the calming surgery, every single person who works there - you have all been amazing. Doing my research certainly paid off. I now have the smile I had only dreamt about.

Thank you all so very much.

I am so pleased with the results and it's made such a difference

5 50 Dental Implants

Implants. My teeth were in a very poor state and I been avoiding the dentist taking them all out for years! Terrified of false teeth - totally irrational but that's the way it was! I can smile at last and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the practice to even the most frightened of patients - I certainly fit that bill!

Brilliant. Gavin and his staff made a huge difference, I was terrified and really didn't believe I could go through with it all. I am so pleased with the results and it's made such a difference! Gavin understood my fears and made sure that I wasn't put through any more stress than need be. I can't explain how much I hated my teeth and Gavin even made sure that I didn't see any, fantastic. The practice really understands the needs of patients and I certainly must have tested them!

Thank you all so much, I feel a different person now!

Treated by: Gavin Laidlaw

You did extremely well Penny, and we're so happy you had such a great experience! Thankyou for sharing - we look forward to seeing you again.

I have had so many compliments now and for the first time in 28 years

5 50 Extractions, Sedation for dental treatments, Dentures • Paid: £890

I came to see Gavin, as a very nervous patient who had a very negative view of dentistry and any kind of treatment following over 20yrs of pain, anxiety and having to take medication for high anxiety every time I visited a dentist. Gavin and Nicky, from consultation to treatment and aftercare looked after me so well and explained things to me properly, so much so I managed to come for reviews without any anxiety medication. I had sedation and extraction then dentures and every step of the way I was treated like my thoughts mattered.

My partial Denture journey is self-esteem changing in itself. My denture by the team here is quite exquisite and quite an art to create. I have had so many compliments now and for the first time in 28 years, I can smile properly and confidently! I wouldn't ever go back to NHS now! Neither will my family and Thank you very much for helping me Smile again!

Amazing review, thank you Liz, it is such a shame that people have such bad memories of dental treatment in the past. Hopefully, what we have done together will help to restore your confidence and get you smiling. Gavin

I thought they did a really good job so I decided to use them myself

5 50 Dentist Consultation

I actually sent my mom here a couple years ago when she couldn’t get an NHS dentist. I thought they did a really good job so I decided to use them myself. I wanted to see a hygienist and the NHS one was unavailable, so I opted for private treatment instead.

Dental Solutions is brilliant - clean and professional. The staff are friendly too. I was quoted for the hygienist session prior to the appointment and didn’t need any aftercare or follow-ups. I liked that my appointment went ahead as scheduled. It wasn’t like most clinics where you have to wait 3 hours before they call your name. The efficient service was great.

This is wonderful to hear Samantha, thankyou for your kind review!

The clinic is beautifully presented and well located close to a large carpark

5 50 Dentist Consultation

Major dental work on lower jaw after years of putting it off. Great results achieved in relatively few visits and follow up appointments always available sometimes at very short notice in response to my concerns. Price reflects the level of care and expertise given and for me is worth every penny - the adage of 'you get what you pay for' applies.

Amy is a delightful, calm, friendly and reassuring dentist who is a real asset to the practice. The clinic is beautifully presented and well located close to a large carpark. Highly recommended.

The team are always very professionally competent, carry out the work with care and consideration

5 50 Hygienist Session, Teeth Cleaning, Dental Checkup, White Filling, Dental Crowns

Six-monthly general inspection and examination of a recently broken tooth. Hygienist’s clean and polish.

The dentist examined my teeth, gums carefully and checked for mouth cancer.

The Hygienist scaled my teeth manually because I have sensitive teeth which can hurt with the powered cleaner, and offered the air cleaning process.

The team are always very professionally competent, carry out the work with care and consideration, showing thoughtful concern, and giving sound advice. The patient’s comfort is a prime consideration. Any points raised are listened to carefully.

I have been coming to this team for many years, although I now live 90 miles away.

As I have been unable to find an equally excellent dental practice near where I live which had room for new patients.
I am happy to travel for my treatment as I am always totally confident to come to this practice, because of the top quality care I receive.

Treated by: Gavin Laidlaw

So happy to hear this fantastic feedback, Hilary - thankyou for taking the time to write it, and for travelling to see us despite the long journey! I will pass your kind words onto the team. Many thanks, Louise Foster - Dental Nurse

Adult Braces

Traditional fixed braces are the most common orthodontic treatment to correct teeth and jaw alignment. They consist of small metal brackets that allow the dentist to have total control over each tooth in order to straighten the teeth.
from £3000

Lingual Braces

The best thing about this treatment? On top of straightening your teeth, no on else will notice the braces.These metal brackets are discreetly placed on the inside surface of your teeth.
from £2000

Six Month Smiles™

Treatment times are far shorter than traditional braces ranging from 4 to 9 months which makes them less costly. 6 Month Smiles focuses purely on the appearance of the teeth and anyone from the age of 17 can be a candidate for the treatment.
from £39

Dental Checkup

from £600

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns may be needed to protect a weak tooth, to restore an already broken or worn tooth, to cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't a lot of tooth left, to hold a dental bridge in place or to cover a dental implant.
from £600

Porcelain Crown

from £1100

Dental Implants

To replace a missing tooth, a titanium root is placed in the gum where your natural roots would have been sited, and a porcelain replacement tooth is bonded to it after a short healing period. Alternatively, mini implants can be placed around the gum and your denture effectively press studs to them giving a rock solid fit. At Dental Solutions Lymm, we have installed a dedicated separate implant suite at the practice for the comfort of our patients. This suite has the latest bespoke equipment and Richard Brookshaw is one of a handful of surgeons in the country to place the general dental implants, same day smiles and especially zygomatic dental implants. Richard works along with our principal dentist Gavin Laidlaw who restores the implants and our friendly nurses who will look after you throughout your time at the practice. Dental Solutions is one of a very few places in the country to offer zygomatic dental implants.

Book a free consultation with us to assess your suitability to the Invisalign treatment.
from £200

Teeth Whitening

We have a wide range of different treatments for tooth whitening, depending on your budget, the shade of whiteness you desire, the speed of transformation you wish to achieve, and any tooth sensitivity you may have.
from £400

Veneers

If you feel that your teeth just don’t look quite right together – they might be slightly different colours, or one could be a little twisted or shorter than the others, then veneers may be the solution you have been searching for. Removing the tiniest amount of enamel from the front of the desired tooth to be replaced with porcelain gives us the scope to dramatically change the appearance of your teeth without compromising their health. The resulting veneer is incredibly strong when bonded to your tooth and treating one or more of your teeth will give you the beautiful, natural looking smile you are looking for.
