We balance optimum dental health with optimum aesthetics.
We love our work and it shows!
Patients choose Bellevue Dental because they know we always do 'what's right for them', with care, gentleness and precision.
Preventive dentistry is all about helping you to preserve your teeth so you need fewer dental treatments. That’s why we encourage:
- Regular dental check-ups and prompt treatments to nip potential problems in the bud
- A daily hygiene routine for fresh breath, healthy teeth and gums
- Healthy eating and drinking
- Regular exercise
- Ideally – no smoking.
Long term infections in teeth or gums can infiltrate the body to potentially trigger or worsen conditions like:
- Heart disease
- Respiratory disease
- Premature birth and low birth weight.
The most important part of our work is making sure you have a healthy mouth with long-lasting teeth.
When treatment is needed we guide you through all the options, costs and timescales so you can decide what best suits your needs and budget.
We also give you advice on how to prolong the life of your teeth and keep your mouth healthy.
Dr Leigh Hunt, a father of three, is especially skilled in treating children and many come to Bellevue Dental from local schools for this reason. He makes sure that visits to the dentist are happy and stress free - laying the foundations for a positive, lifelong dental experience.
