I was impressed by the results and went ahead to have more cosmetic procedures here

5 50 Teeth Whitening

I always wanted whiter teeth but had heard horror stories about sensitivity or poor longevity of the outcome. I was recommended to 57 FG dental practice by a family friend. I was very impressed with many years of experience the clinician had in this area of dentistry. They had used many different whitening systems over the years. It was explained to me in detail why they shifted from one brand to another as technology improved.

I was impressed by the results and went ahead to have more cosmetic procedures here. I have now become a regular patient here. I am very glad I was told about this place. I have no regrets!

The procedure was long but painless

5 50 Dental Crowns, Veneers • Paid: £4500

I had full smile makeover with 2 crowns replaced and 6 veneers. It is something I had hoped of getting done for many years. Although not cheap I am very glad I went through with it. The interest-free option was particularly appealing.
The procedure was long but painless. Temporary crowns were good and stayed put!
I have seen this kind of treatment cost up to 4 times as much as what I paid. The skill of the dentist I saw was outstanding. The finished product/work was excellent. Highly recommended !!! Thank you

I was recommended by a close friend who has been with this practice for awhile. My first impression was of the exceptionally luxurious waiting room/reception. The dental surgery itself was very calming and clean. Both the dentist and nurse were very well informed and explained all the treatment options clearly. Dental procedures were also displayed on a large plasma screen so I had a clear idea of what was being proposed. All different materials were discussed and shown to me with concise pros and cons being pointed out.

Wanted my teeth whitened for a very long time

5 50 Teeth Whitening

Enlighten tooth whitening. I have wanted my teeth whitened fort a very long time. At first I thought the cost of treatment was expensive. It was only at the consultation appointment I was made aware by the dentist how tooth whitening works and why some popular systems I had heard about are ineffective. My tooth shade was taken in surgery and my proposed new whiter shade shown to me on a guide.
After treatment I was more than happy. It was fully worth my time and money. The service was superb. Very well informed practice and staff.

I chose this clinic based in recommendation from a friend after she had extensive cosmetic treatment. My first impressions were of being impressed at the amount of money they must have spent on their reception for the comfort of people like me. I was very taken by the level of customer care and individualized care they offered me.

Changed the way I think about myself

5 50 Teeth Whitening, Veneers, Dental Crowns

I have had a full mouth treatment carries out at this practice. After discussing a detailed list of options to improve my smile, Mr Thambirajah carried out a combination of tooth whitening treatment followed by veneers and a crown.

Outstanding treatment from both the dentist and hygiene Therapist. Took their time to patiently explain the options for treatment and carried it out painlessly with a very beautiful result. It has changed the way I think about myself. Thank you so much !!

Impressed by the care and quality

4.8 50 Dentist Consultation • Paid: £150

General maintenance - annual

I have been a patient for many years and have always been impressed by the care and quality of the treatment. Perhaps I have not been over demanding - but a couple of root canal treatments over the years have been trouble free. Mr Tambirajah gives me realistic options for treatments. I feel his materials and equipment is very up to date. I am happy to recommend the surgery.

Megan Sheehan

I studied dental hygiene therapy at the Birmingham University Dental School. I gained a wide range of skills, particularly in the field of paediatric dentistry. Prior to becoming a dental hygiene therapist, I was a qualified dental nurse, from 2009. In that capacity I have had the pleasure of previously working with the team at 57 Friar Gate for 4 years. Since my progression into dental hygiene treatment, I have taken a particular interest and great pride in improving the oral hygiene of patients, to maximise the longevity of their teeth. I am extremely passionate about restorative dentistry and insistent in achieving the maximum cosmetic finish with my restorations. I was recently invited to attend a course in Switzerland, hosted by the dental company, Ivoclar Viva Dent to further my knowledge and hone my skills in my approach towards cosmetic dentistry. I strongly believe in the holistic care of patients and believe that each person and their expectations are different. I therefore take great care in adopting an approach that allows me to deliver the best dental experience that will cater for each person's individual needs.
