General Dentistry in Edinburgh

The Real Star of the Show

Our headline cosmetic treatments have helped establish our clinic as the best in Edinburgh and Scotland.

But we couldn’t have done it without the outstanding day-to-day dentistry that helps keep smiles healthy all year round.

Our general dental services include routine checkups beyond the routine, with digital scans, comprehensive periodontal (gum health) and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) assessments, and much more—all designed to keep you in the best possible long-term health.

Beyond the Routine

Regular checkups on The Row feature a detailed checklist of assessments and diagnostics that ensure no stone is left unturned during your appointment.


In addition to the teeth, we’ll also assess the surrounding soft tissues like the lips, cheeks, gums, and tongue. We’ll also assess your throat and palate for signs of any problems.

Gum Health

Gums are the foundation of a healthy smile—but they’re often overlooked during routine checkups. We’ll carry out a full periodontal assessment to keep gum disease at bay.

Tooth Health

No dental assessment would be complete without a thorough check of teeth for signs of decay, wear and other problems. We’ll also check existing dental work like fillings, crowns and bridges.

TMJ and Bite

Even the smallest misalignment between the upper and lower jaw can cause problems like excessive tooth wear, pain, and difficulties opening and closing your mouth. We’ll carry out a full assessment of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and bite alignment.

Oral Cancer Screen

Our assessment isn’t limited to the mouth—we’ll also screen the tongue, throat, and gums to spot the early signs of oral cancer before they have a chance to develop.

Nervous? Relax on The Row!

Our dedicated care for nervous and anxious patients sees people travel from across the UK to Albany Street, Edinburgh.

No matter how trifling (or insurmountable) your fears may feel, our team is ready to listen to your concerns and design a treatment plan that works for you.

We’ll take things at your pace, and you’re welcome to take your time looking around The Row and meeting the team before taking a seat in the waiting room.

Of course, it also helps that The Row is unlike any other dental clinic you may be used to. In fact, most visitors say it feels more like a boutique hotel or spa than a dental practice.

Oops! Gaps & Damage?

Even the best intentions and a careful daily routine can’t always prevent accidental damage or tooth loss.

When the worst happens, The Row has you covered for restoration and repair with superb quality porcelain crowns and bridges.


Crowns are placed like a protective cap over damaged teeth, restoring both form and function. They’re perfect for repairing chips, cracks and breaks to ensure the damage doesn’t compromise the underlying tooth structure.


As the name suggests, we use bridges to literally ‘bridge’ gaps in the smile where one or a few teeth in a row are missing. Bridges are anchored securely to the teeth on either side of the gap to provide a long-lasting replacement.

White Fillings

If fillings make you think of unsightly spots of black dental amalgam, you’ll be pleased to know things have changed.

Contemporary fillings use a composite material that blends seamlessly with the surrounding tooth enamel to repair and restore tooth cavities.

With tooth-coloured fillings on The Row, no one will ever guess you’ve had treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does general dentistry differ from cosmetic dentistry?

General dentistry focuses on maintaining oral health, including routine checkups and treatments to prevent and address dental issues. On the other hand, cosmetic dentistry primarily deals with improving teeth’ appearance.

Why is a routine dental checkup important, and what does it involve?

Routine dental checkups are crucial for detecting and addressing dental issues early. They typically include assessments of teeth, gums, soft tissues, and screenings for oral cancer.

What diagnostic tools are used during a dental checkup?

Dental checkups may involve X-rays, digital scans, and handheld digital scanners to assess various aspects of oral health, including tooth wear, gum recession, and tooth movement.

How does gum health affect overall oral health?

Gum health is essential for a healthy smile, and it’s often overlooked. A full periodontal assessment helps prevent gum disease and maintain overall oral health.

What are dental crowns, and when are they used?

Dental crowns are protective caps placed over damaged teeth to restore their form and function. They are used to repair chips, cracks, and breaks in teeth.

What are dental bridges, and how do they work?

Dental bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth. They “bridge” the gap by anchoring adjacent teeth, providing a lasting replacement.

What are tooth-coloured fillings, and how do they differ from traditional amalgam fillings?

Tooth-coloured fillings use a composite material that blends seamlessly with tooth enamel, repairing cavities while maintaining a natural appearance. They are aesthetically pleasing compared to traditional amalgam fillings.

Do you offer membership plans for routine dental care?

Yes, we offer flexible, affordable monthly membership plans that include routine checkups and hygiene services. These plans help patients spread the cost of routine care.
