Urgent Patient News

In order to minimise health risks to our patients and staff, we are currently cancelling any routine check-ups. We are still open for emergency appointments such as pain, swelling, bleeding or abscesses. For other problems such as broken teeth, lost fillings & lost crowns with no pain, please contact us; at the moment as treatment is still quite limited we will be able to offer an assessment of the problem and plan for future treatment.

In the case that you experience any of the above, please email us at info@banburydentalsurgery.co.uk, with your name, date of birth and contact number. If calling the practice on 01295 273112, please call between 9am- 5pm Monday - Friday, or leave us a message. Somebody will be in contact with you to assess and arrange an appointment.

Due to the corona virus outbreak we are requesting that all patients that have recently experienced a new persistent cough or have a current temperature (of 37.8 degrees centigrade or higher), to NOT attend the practice.

All patients being booked in will be required to answer covid-19 screening questions before their appointment, as well as upon arrival to the practice. Payment for all appointments and treatment we request is done by card and contactless payment where possible.


 Crowns are an ideal restoration for teeth that have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. 

A crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. A crown is sometimes known as a ‘cap’. They can be made of porcelain or gold or a combination of these materials.

A dental crown could be used for a number of other reasons, for instance:

∗ You may have discoloured fillings and would like to improve the appearance of the tooth.

∗ You may have had a root filling which will need a crown to protect it.

∗ It may help hold a bridge or denture firmly in place.

∗ Porcelain veneers can improve the colour, shape and position of teeth.
