In an increasingly busy world, we appreciate that taking time out to visit the dentist is often an afterthought.
Therefore we want to introduce you to the first of our three types of digital scanners.
The CerecOmnicam scanner was introduced to The Gentle Dental Implant and Cosmetic Centre in 2016.
During your consultation, we will choose the most appropriate material for you and your teeth so that you may achieve the most optimum aesthetics.
Our on-site lab technician will add character to the milled teeth prior to us bonding them to your teeth.
With this scanner and milling unit combination, you are able to have a single tooth repaired in 60 minutes or an entire same day full mouth smile makeover.
While we make your tooth, you can relax in our patient lounge enjoying a hot or cold beverage reading your favourite magazine or watching on-demand television.

The iTero scanner is state-of-the-art
This piece of equipment gives a high definition of a accurate 3-D view of the area of the jaw that is being treated, thus allowing your dentist to treat you with ultimate precision.
Exceptional diagnostic clarity is absolutely necessary for successful treatments in areas of dental care such as implantology, endodontics (root canal treatments) and oral surgery.
We are pleased to be able to offer all patients the opportunity to undergo treatment with such high phased technology.
Accurate treatment planning, enhanced visualisation and convenient access to invaluable information allow better decision making by both the dentist and the patient.
This means that the treatment is incredibly precise thus increasing its chance of success.
It has fast become an indispensable tool.
What is the Digital CT Scan used for?
This versatile world-renowned technology is bringing dentistry into a new age where outstanding imagery is allowing accurate treatment decisions to be made with quicker treatment response.
This helps both the dentist and the patient in understanding all the options and possibilities.
The use of these types of technology within our practice allows us to continue providing exceptional levels of care and leaving our patients happy with the results of their treatment.
We use the latest generation of X-ray and Radiograph units.
This has huge benefits over the older analogue units.

This has been one of the most invaluable pieces of equipment at our practice.
Our endodontist Dr Richard Condon completes root canal work with precision and increase clarity – ensuring that all root canals are completed to the highest standards.
He has found that the accuracy associated with using a microscope gives him greater control during a procedure.
Our principal dentist Dr Ali Rifai may use the microscope while completing ultra-thin veneer preparations where he needs accuracy to the nearest 0.1mm.
This ensures that the most minimal tooth preparation is carried out, yet achieve the highest standards.
We believe you as the patient should be able to see exactly what the dentist sees.
This allows our patients to make better choices for their oral health and dental care.
The intra-oral camera is a pen-like device that goes inside the mouth and captures a high definition photo.
The image is then sent to a screen live for you to see.
The intra-oral camera is used throughout each stage of a treatment or an examination meaning that each patient has more control of their dental treatment.
We have found that when patients are advised to treat a condition in their mouth the intra-oral camera has had a significant positive impact on the decision making the process of our patients.
We want our patients to experience comfort while having their dental treatment.
For this reason, we have invested in the latest gadgets. The AquaCut 2 is an essential part of our armoury in treating dental issues.

When can Aquacut be used
Using DSD our patients can get involved in the planning of their smile enhancement process, co-designing their own treatment by sharing objectives, expressing their desires and expectations with the dental team.
We have found that the interaction between patient and our dentists is improved by photos and videos taken at several steps of the treatment.
We have found that great results will be achieved – creating a path to a natural, confident and beautiful smile.
The smile is designed using a whole range of information including patients facial and dental proportions, taking a series of predetermined high-quality digital photographs and videos so the dental team can understand the relationship between your teeth, gums, lips, smile with the facial features in motion and with emotion.
A trial smile is where were our patients are able to try out their new look smile prior to having any dental work completed.
Using a combination of composite material, digital photographs and videos we are able to show our patients how their teeth can look like.
