Family Dentistry, Cosmetic Dentist &
Abbey Dental Practice was founded in January 2001
by our principal dentist, Robert Handley BDS. His aim was to create a state of the art practice where the emphasis was on high quality dental care in a friendly environment. Designed without compromise the new building has hi tech equipment throughout and dental treatment rooms are air-conditioned for comfort.
The dental practice has established itself amongst the local community and now provides dental services to many patients in Cheshire and the surrounding areas.
We know as well as anyone that your smile is one of the most noticeable and memorable features of your face. That is why the dental team at Abbey Dental Practice work hard to provide you with the very best dental healthcare.
Our Family Dentistry Services
If you need a filling or have the onset of tooth decay, please contact us immediately. Not only can we help clean and protect the tooth in question from further damage, but we can also provide white `tooth coloured` fillings, providing you with a great aesthetic and functional solution in no time.
We work hard to help keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy. This is important to help avoid gum disease, periodontal disease, and loss of teeth. Our professional and experienced hygienists team are always on hand to help and provide further information and advice surrounding oral hygiene.
If you suffer from long-term gum inflammation or gingivitis, it’s essential to contact us as soon as possible. If left untreated over a long period, gum inflammation can lead to periodontal disease, which can lead to teeth becoming loose as the bone supporting the tooth is affected. In such cases, you must get preventative treatment before teeth start falling out.
Looking for Dental implants? You could have lost one tooth, several teeth or all your natural teeth; this can affect your smile, your ability to eat your favourite foods, your self-esteem and your health.
Whether you've lost all of your teeth or just a single tooth, dentures can provide the perfect tooth replacement solution without being permanently fixed. Made from acrylic or a mixture of acrylic and cobalt-chromium, dentures are functional, comfortable, and practical.
Our Cosmetic Dentistry Sevices
Teeth whitening is one of the easiest ways to enhance your looks. Whether you want to add a sparkle to your smile for your wedding day or perfect your look for business meetings, whitening is simple, affordable and safe.
Veneers are an extremely popular choice if your teeth aren’t as aligned as you would like, or maybe you have a small chip in your tooth, which is noticeable when you smile? Maybe your teeth are stained, stopping you from showing your full smile? Whatever the reason, veneers can certainly help. Providing you with the perfect smile, getting veneers doesn’t require any major procedures, and they look like natural teeth.
A fixed solution that helps to replace any missing teeth by fixing two or more bridges on either side of the missing tooth providing a placeholder so the new tooth can be fitted with ease, helping to `bridge` the gap.
Today, teeth straightening is more common than ever before. Popular with patients of all ages, we utilise new aligner technologies and cosmetic braces to provide a treatment plan that fits with you and your lifestyle.
At Abbey Dental Practice, we provide high-quality ceramic crowns, which can be ideal if you’re self-conscious about a current crown, you have a discoloured tooth, or you’re suffering from a crumbling filling.
It is our mission to provide individualized treatment with your health and well-being as our priority. We strive to educate patients on oral health and preventive care. Furthermore, we practice with positive attitudes and maintain a comfortable, friendly atmosphere for every patient. We want you to feel like family!
We know how important it is to love your smile. Our aim is to assure you, you’ll be as comfortable and informed as possible throughout any treatment we give you. We’ll break down the cost, length and number of appointments as well as all precautions you may need to take during your treatment in detail so we can be sure you’ll feel at ease & relaxed at every appointment.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to telephone the practice to book an appointment?
No there any many ways to book an appointment, you can book online on our website, send us an email or message us on Facebook.
How often should I brush my teeth and gums?
It is important that you brush last thing at night and at least one other time during the day, with a toothpaste containing fluoride. It is especially important to brush before bed. This is because of the flow of saliva, which is the mouth’s own cleaning system, slows down during the night and this leaves the mouth more at risk from decay.
What foods can cause tooth decay?
All sugars can cause decay. Sugar can come in many forms. Usually, ingredients ending in ‘ose’ are sugars, for example, sucrose, fructose and glucose are just three types. These sugars can all damage your teeth and leads to fillings or even extractions. Decay happens when sugar reacts with the bacteria in plaque. This forms the acids that attack the teeth and destroy the enamel.
