    Composite filling

    HQ Dental are experts at providing patients with composite fillings, which are tooth fillings coloured to mirror the natural appearance of your natural teeth. Whilst they serve the same purpose as traditional fillings, they are a more aesthetically pleasing alternative and are usually plastic or ceramic-based.
    From £150

    Amalgam filling

    Amalgam fillings are more traditional fillings that are made from a mixture of materials, primarily liquid materials and a powdered alloy composed of silver, tin, and copper. The main advantage of amalgam fillings is that they are a cheaper alternative to composite fillings and are extremely durable, making them ideal for the back molars where the strongest bite force is exerted.
    From £100

    Extraction (simple)

    Our team can perform simple or surgical tooth extractions depending on how complex your oral health needs are. During a simple extraction, you'll receive a local anaesthetic, meaning you will not be put to sleep but the area around your tooth will be numbed.

    Complex surgical extraction

    For more invasive procedures, a surgical extraction may be required. Here the patient will receive both local and intravenous anaesthesia, and potentially general anaesthesia.

    Crown re-cement

    Crowns can fall out for a variety of reasons, ranging from general wear and tear to further misalignment of the tooth. Usually, they can be fixed by putting a new core into the damaged tooth before recementing the crown into the correct place.

    Root canal treatment

    Root canal treatment is the process of removing an infection from inside a tooth, and it can also be used to protect the tooth from future infections. Root canal therapy starts by cleaning the hollow section of a tooth that contains the nerve tissue and blood vessels. With the patient under local anaesthesia, the dentist makes a small incision on the surface of the tooth and removes the dead and diseased tissue from within. Next, the hygienist cleans, shapes and decontaminates the hollowed-out area, and the tooth is filled with a rubber-like material using an adhesive cement to seal the canals. Finally, it must be further strengthened so that it does not become brittle. This is usually done by a crown or filling to offer further protection against future wear and tear and the prevention of future treatments.
    From £400

    Surgical root canal (apicectomy)

    When a non-surgical root canal is not sufficient to save the tooth, a surgical root canal may be necessary. The most common reason for this is when inflation or infection continue to threaten the tooth's bone structure even after a conventional canal has been completed. In a surgical root canal the endodontist accesses the root of the tooth through a small incision in the gum, rather than the tooth. Once the root is reached, inflamed or infected tissue is removed and the end of the root is sealed. Regular check-ups, once the treatment has been completed, ensure that complications are less likely to arise and future dental implants are not required.

    Pathology (requiring biopsy)

    If abnormal tissue occurs in the mouth, a small piece may need to be removed and sent for testing. This is known as a biopsy, and tissue samples are taken using a variety of instruments under anaesthetic. Your surgeon will send the tissue samples to a pathologist, who can determine whether further treatment is required.

    Teeth whitening - SPECIAL OFFER

    Teeth whitening treatment is the process of lightening the natural colour of your teeth to give you a smile makeover. Here at HQ Dental, the techniques we use are centered around whitening trays and peroxide whitening gel - both of which can be produced by our friendly staff while you wait in our on-site laboratory, before being applied to your teeth.

    Whitening gel syringes

    You can purchase top-up syringes of whitening gel from HQ Dental to help you maintain a great-looking smile at home, and your custom-made trays can be used for future top-up teeth whitening treatments.

    Pocket measuring

    Pocket measuring is a key part of regular check-ups and refers to the process of measuring the depths of your gum tissue pockets, with a healthy number being anything from 1 to 3 millimetres deep. To measure this we use a periodontal probe from where the tissue is connected through ligaments to the root.


    Oraqix is a gel that is used as a form of local anaesthesia for procedures where tooth pockets are affected. It is most commonly used in adults, with the aim being to stop or relieve pain during dental procedures such as scaling, probing, and root planing.

    Sedation (on referral)

    Intravenous sedation may be offered to patients over 16, depending on the complexity of the case and any pre-existing medical conditions, after a full assessment by a sedation dentist.

    Sensitivity is often triggered by cold food and drinks, touch or sweet foods. It can be caused by exposing the more sensitive dentine on your teeth either by brushing too hard or consuming too many acidic foods. The solution is to limit the exposure of your teeth to acid attack, regularly brushing and using toothpaste for sensitive teeth. If the problem persists, book an appointment with HQ Dental.

    Not experiencing any pain doesn’t necessarily mean you don’t have any dental problems. At your check up we’ll check your teeth and gums carefully and advise you of any potential issues – and we also check for mouth cancer. If your teeth and gums are completely healthy, we will give you advice on how to keep them that way.

    Time between appointments varies for different people, but we usually recommend having a dental check up every six months. If you suffer from chronic dental problems or have poor oral health, your dentist may recommend visiting as often as every three months. But if your mouth is healthy and you don’t have a history of problems, we may also recommend increasing the interval between check-ups.

    We’re based on the outskirts of Leeds, near Wortley. Access is easy via the Leeds ring road and from Leeds city centre. Our full address is:
