Dental Implants

We often hear that your dentures, or missing teeth, mean that you struggle to eat certain foods, lack the confidence to smile, or are reluctant to socialise for fear of being judged by the appearance of your teeth.
We can solve many of these issues by restoring your smile using dental implants. The benefits of dental implants has been proven time and again as the best way of replacing missing teeth, or getting rid of your dentures. Dental implants can be used to replace one missing tooth, or an entire jaw of missing teeth and they will look, feel and behave just like your natural teeth.


Orthodontic treatments using braces have been around since the 18th century but many people are uncomfortable with the train track look that comes with traditional braces. Fortunately, technology has moved on a long way and now you can have beautiful straight teeth without looking like a villain from a Bond movie. We've teamed up with industry-leading orthodontic experts, Quick Straight Teeth and Invisalign to offer a range of teeth straightening solutions to fit your circumstances and your budget.

Cosmetic Dentistry

At The Old Spire, we offer a range of cosmetic dentistry treatments. These include Dental Veneers, Tooth Whitening, Cosmetic Bonding and the treatment of Gummy Smiles.


One solution for missing teeth is Cosmetic Dentures. This is a relatively cost-effective solution to the problem of eventual tooth loss and should be considered as a viable option if this problem starts to affect your life. We understand the impact that losing teeth can have on the quality of life and we know it can affect your confidence, alter your facial appearance and interfere with eating. At The Old Spire, we routinely use dental implants to secure loose dentures, and we can even replace your dentures completely with a full mouth of teeth, fixed in place that look, behave and function just like your natural teeth even you would struggle to know they were not your own teeth!

Customer Testimonials

Many years ago Nigel took over my treatment and transformed how I felt about dentistry and allayed my fears. He’s the best. Happy to commute to his practice whenever I need his help. Backed up by lovely staff as well.

I recently had a filling and clean at the Old Church Dental Practice and Pav was really great. He was cheerful and reassuring and the filling was completed quickly, even though we had to re-arrange the appointment for treatment due to the bad snow. I’ll be back again but hopefully not for six months!

Professional & friendly team that dealt with my treatment from start to finish in an excellent timely manner, totally in love with the results and look forward to my regular maintenance checks.

Excellent dentistry. Never felt so comfortable having treatment and so pleased with the finished result. Now happy to smile.
All the staff are lovely and all undertaken in a beautiful building.

Amazing place and service! All staff are lovely and they really care about their patients. Had my wisdom teeth taken out after being in absolute agony even after antibiotics, and they squeezed me in to sort this, and Made me feel so calm and safe during it all! Thank you so much already feel tones better!!

I’m currently having Invisalign treatment with Dr Pritchard and I’m impressed with the service and treatment plan he has provided and I can’t wait to finally have beautiful straight white teeth! The dental practice is beautiful and the receptionist (Sophie) is super friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend Dr Pritchard to my friends and family.
