She explains procedures before treatment and puts you at ease

5 50 Dentist Consultation

We have been patients with Lauren at Dental Solutions for over two years and we have complete confidence in her.

She explains procedures before treatment and puts you at ease.

I have had negative experiences at other practices but I thoroughly recommend Lauren for her skilful dentistry.

I was very impressed with the whole set up, from walking through the door and receptionist greeting

4.5 50 Dentist Consultation

Had to use Gavin in an emergency as my Dentist wasn’t open. I arrived for my appointment and miraculously the receptionist knew my name before I introduced myself. Clearly she knew her patients. I had to fill a questionnaire and in no time was in the chair. I was thinking I had some sort of infection as I had pain for a couple of days. Within seconds Gavin had sorted the problem out, it was a piece of fishbone lodged in between teeth Much to my relief. What made it even better was that Gavin decided it was “freebie Friday”. The whole visit was getting better! Seriously, I was very impressed with the whole set up, from walking through the door and receptionists greeting. To the 5 minutes, I was with Gavin. A very professional set up. Once again Thankyou.

Treated by: Gavin Laidlaw

Thank you Colin for taking the time to leave this lovely review. We are always happy to help in an emergency, we look forward to welcoming you to the practice again. Thank you from Gavin and the team at Dental Solutions

I can now bite into an apple without fear of losing a tooth

5 50 Dental Bridges

Well after having the all on 4 treatment in mid-March and temporary upper and lower bridge's fitted I've now had my permanent bridge's fitted and I'm more than happy with the final results.

Gavin took great care in getting the look and bite of my final bridge's just wright before the moulds were turned into teeth, he's a perfectionist and after what he was presented with before surgery I think he's a miracle worker, and for the 1st time in years, I can now bite into an apple without fear of losing a tooth and eat all the foods I've had to swerve for years.

I can't thank Gavin and the team enough for all their hard work, and to Dr Richard Brookshaw who's a fantastic oral surgeon, at no time have I had any pain or discomfort. Thank you for dental solutions for helping me make such a big decision so easy. Thanks for everything.

Treated by: Richard Brookshaw

Thank you Philip for taking the time and trouble to leave this fantastic review, we take great pride in all that we do and I have fed your comments to the entire team, we look forward to welcoming you to the practice again soon. Thanks again from Gavin and the team at Dental Solutions

I was very impressed with the professionalism of the staff who were lovely

5 50 Teeth Whitening • Paid: £295

I recently attended the dental clinic for Zoom teeth whitening. I was very impressed with the professionalism of the staff who were lovely and put me at ease during the procedure. I am delighted with the results and would not hesitate to recommend the treatment to anyone thinking about it.

This is wonderful to hear, thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this review, Laura. It was lovely to treat you, and we hope you are enjoying your whiter smile! :) - Sarah Townsend and the team at Dental Solutions

I smile a lot more now and eat whatever I want without fear

4.5 50 Dental Implants

I have had a full upper denture for over 10 years and it wasn't getting any easier to get used to them. I found it near impossible to go out and socialise feeling comfortable whilst eating as two dentures had fractured in this very situation. I had tinkered with the prospect of having a bone graft to my upper jaw as there was not enough jaw bone present to have implants. So when I discussed and was offered the relatively new procedure of a Zygoma all on 4 implant bridge I felt so positive about it. The procedure and care were of the highest standard and the result has been amazing. I have never been so happy and positive about my teeth for many a year. I smile a lot more now and eat whatever I want without fear. So if you have a problem and need a Zygoma all on 4 implants, don't delay arrange it today.

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.

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.

CEREC Dental Restorations

from £39

Dental Checkup

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.

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.

Zoom! Teeth Whitening

from £400


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.
