Quality

Your treatment is carried out to the highest standards, using modern materials and techniques. At 1st-Impressions we only use tooth-coloured filling materials as we are a mercury-free practice. We look after your comfort and safety.

Our clinical staff have a commitment to ongoing postgraduate education to keep them up to date and we regard constantly improving our skills as an important part of delivering a first class service.

Our metal dentures, crowns and bridgework are carried out by laboratories that have achieved BS5750/ISO9002 and our metal denture castings are guaranteed by the manufacturers for five years.
