Beckenham Dental Centre

Your local Dentist

Our practice in Beckenham has been established since 1973 and we are a committed team dedicated to providing high quality dental care to our patients in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

We realise that to many patients continuity is an important consideration. The last thing they want is a different dentist at every visit. We have an incredibly loyal and motivated team, which between them have almost 200 years of service to the practice.

The practice ethos has always been to promote dental health by prevention, whilst repairing the results of time and decay to the highest standard.

Combined there is a huge range of experience and expertise to call upon so if you have a specific need there will be some one within the practice to fulfil it.

Cosmetic

Cosmetic

Cosmetic treatment can range from the simple replacement of an unsightly aged and discoloured restoration, to a complete ‘smile makeover’.

Crowns

A crown (also known as a “Cap”) can be made of tooth coloured porcelain, porcelain bonded to metal and also gold.

Onlay/Inlay

Onlay/Inlay

When more than half of the tooth’s biting surface is damaged, a dentist will often use an inlay or onlay.

Bridges

A bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. It is fixed in place.

Veneers

Veneers can be used to alter the size, shape, colour and angulation of a tooth or several teeth.

Dentures

Dentures

Dentures are used as both an interim and a permanent method of replacing missing teeth with great aesthetic results.

Implants

Implants

Dental Implants are a permanent fixture in the mouth that is an ideal alternative to wearing a denture.

Extractions

Extractions

Teeth may be extracted to relieve crowding in orthodontic cases, or where a tooth has broken down so much as to be beyond restoration, or is causing infection.

Tooth Whitening

Tooth Whitening

This professional bleaching technique is the most used treatment of lightening up existing shade of teeth.

Teeth Straightening

Teeth Straightening

Orthodontic treatment moves teeth to create a better functioning bite with improved appearance.

Facial Aesthetics

Facial Aesthetics

If you would like to reduce lines and wrinkles on your face and other specified areas of the body, we have rejuvenation techniques to relax wrinkles, making them look softer and appear less visible. The advantage of having it done in this environment; is that it is carried out by an experienced clinician who has extensive knowledge of the facial anatomy.

Hygiene Visit

Hygiene Visit

Gum disease will affect nearly everyone at some point in their life. It has also been linked to many other major health problems including heart disease and diabetes.

A history of Beckenham Dental Centre

The practice was started before the last war by two fine Beckenham Gentlemen -Bob Wheatley and Gordon Lyle. As dentists, they set up their practice in Southend Road where patients would be greeted at the door by a butler who escorted them to the surgery. The equipment was foot pedal drills and the practice still has their original saddle stool which looks as if should be in a museum- the British Dental Association is keen to have it as an item of historic interest.

Recent reviews of our practice

Dr Sharman at the Beckenham Dental Centre is a very friendly and consultative dentist, who takes pride in walking you through the dental process step by step making the visit to the dentist less daunting. I highly recommend anyone with dentista-phobia to be seen by Dr Sharman. I went through whitening and teeth reconstruction and I am 100% satisfied.

Mya Arun

This is a wonderful dental practise. I had two root canals done outside the UK. And I registered as a new patient in this dental surgery and got two crowns for the root canals. My dentist Hania was very patient and did a great job. I was a NHS patient under maternity exception. Although the appointments took long due to NHS queue, the service was excellent. Appointments are well timed and I did not need to waste my time waiting for my appointment. Staff at reception are very nice too. I highly recommend this surgery.

Samila Bandara

Fantastic practice, with welcoming staff. Am a slightly nervous patient when it comes to the dentist so it has been great to have been made to feel completely at ease on every visit. Would highly recommend.
