1. Whiter and straighter smile

Cosmetic treatment received: Bridge and porcelain veneers

Leon, who was feeling very self-conscious about the discolouration and alignment of his teeth, approached The Gentle Dental clinic for cosmetic dental treatment.

One of his concerns was also a misfitted crown on the front of his upper jaw, which he was not only conscious about, but was impacting his bite function too.

Specialist dentist, Dr Ali Rifai discussed Leon’s cosmetic options in an initial consultation before applying custom-made porcelain veneers which blended perfectly with the other teeth for a completely natural look.

Veneers are a great way to improve the overall appearance of your smile. Learn more here.

2. Implant-restored smile

Following trauma, Mark was left with a missing front tooth, which was making him feel really embarrassed.

He was also experiencing sensitivity and occasional pain due to the exposure of the gums.

He had been given a temporary partial denture, also known as a flipper, from another dental practice, which was sold to Mark as a cheaper option to implants.

But the partial denture was causing irritation and discomfort and would often slip out when he ate.

He came to Gentle Dental searching for a longer-lasting and more permanent solution to his missing tooth.

We proposed dental implants to Mark as the most cost-effective and durable solution to restore his smile, as well as solving the bite problems he was having.

Mark’s smile was finished by evening out the colour of his teeth using veneers.

3. Straightened teeth with Invisalign

We’re Invisalign Platinum Providers!

Amie wanted a straighter smile after her teeth grew in slightly crookedly as a child.

Having recently started a career as a lawyer, she was feeling self-conscious about the appearance of her teeth, especially during meetings, and court cases.

She was particularly self-conscious about her bottom set of teeth, where one particular tooth was angled back and looked like it was wedged between the teeth.

Dr Ali Rifai suggested an Invisalign treatment for Amie’s smile.

The treatment involved a set of aligners which Amie wore in stages to help her teeth become more aligned.

The Gentle Dental practice was brilliant- great service and completely transformed my smile with Invisalign! I am very happy with the result and would highly recommend it to anyone! Ali and his team are very attentive to your needs and give advice to suit what they think would be the best in your individual circumstance. – Amie Watson

4. Full smile restoration

dental implant before and afterJenny was a patient with Gentle Dental who underwent a smile makeover.

Her treatments consisted of implant bridges, bonding, and veneers.

When a smile needs changing and improving significantly, the best way is to combine cosmetic treatments. Jenny had a consultation with us before any work was done, so discuss her options, prices, and payment plans.

Due to the multiple gaps in Jenny’s upper jaw, the most efficient way to restore her smile was by placing a bridge, which was in place and fixed in just two days.

Once the bridge had been placed, Dr Ali Rifai applied dental veneers to make the shade of the smile even and bright, as well as minor bonding between receded gum pockets, to give Jenny the youthful look she wanted.

Her new smile gave her so much more confidence and made her look instantly younger.

5. Orthodontic treatment for a straight smile

Full Mouth Restorative WorkThis patient came to us wanting to straighten their teeth.

As Invisalign is best suited to more minor orthodontic alignment, Dr Ali Rifai suggested that this patient should opt for metallic braces for a longer-lasting and stronger alignment process.

A year on, and they are much straighter, and our patient feels so much more confident with their smile.

They have said they are considering veneer treatment in the future!

6. Full smile makeover: crowns, implants, and veneers

smile makeover before and afterNickie’s teeth needed some restorative care.

She had missing teeth at the back of her mouth, and her front teeth were crooked and worn down.

She was concerned that her smile was making her look old and unhealthy.

We also found a severely decayed tooth at the back of her mouth which Dr Ali Rifai extracted to prevent further damage or infection.

Any gaps in Nickie’s mouth were restored with dental implants to improve not only the look, but the strength, structure, and function of her smile.

Following this, Nickie’s front teeth were crooked with a few broken teeth to the side.

We discussed with her that we could fix these issues with crowns and veneers and she was very happy with the prospect of having a straight and white set of teeth!

Exemplary dentistry. I am completely delighted with my new perfect smile! I’ve had implants, crowns, extractions all completed in a pain-free, professional way. Lovely team, state-of-the-art technology, and equipment, Covid-secure. I will be recommending it to everyone! Ali is simply superb, and I highly recommend it. – Nickie
