Cosmetic Gallery

Are you part of the 40% of the UK population concerned about your smile’s shade, shape, structure or general look? Here at The Gentle Dental, we are committed to helping you smile again with a set of teeth you love.

Cosmetic Dentistry: Before and After Photos

Cosmetic dentistry can often feel like a daunting decision, but by pairing the latest technology with our expertise, we provide treatments, which are entirely safe and long-lasting.

That’s why we discuss your options thoroughly in consultation and offer you a trial smile, allowing you to preview your new smile before committing to the treatment itself!

We have also collected some of our many case studies to show you how much of a difference we can make to your smile.

1. Whiter and straighter smile

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.

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

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

However 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, 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 and solve 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

Amie wanted a straighter smile after her teeth grew 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.

4. Full smile restoration

Jenny 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.

5. Orthodontic treatment for a straight smile

This patient came to us wanting to straighten their teeth.

As Invisalign is best suited to 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, they are much straighter, and our patient feels 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

Nickie’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. The concern was 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 also the strength, structure, and function of her smile.

Next, 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!

Dental Impant Surgery:I had my dental implants fitted recently and I am extremely happy with the outcome. Ali and the team have done an amazing job since I lost my 2 front teeth over 6 years ago. I had to wait for the surgery for a long time due to my age and the issues surrounding having implants at a young age.I finally had the surgery 12 weeks ago and had my two new crowns fitted last week. They look absolutely amazing and the whole procedure was way less painful than I ever thought it would be.I would highly recommend getting your implants done at the Gentle Dental Practice, you won't regret it!A massive thank you to everyone at the practice!

Fantastic work on my teeth and I would highly recommend! My teeth turned out better than I had even hoped for. If you are in need of any dental work, you would be doing a great disservice if you didn't speak to this practice first. The staff were extremely friendly, there were text updates and all in all an excellent service from start to finish. If you haven't guessed already, I am thoroughly pleased with The Gentle Dentle. Thank you!

Like many people, I have an immense fear of dentistry, and dentists, due to previous experiences.I had two broken teeth and one that had been treated incorrectly by an NHS dentist. I had been in daily pain for about 18 months, and had been put on a 6 month waiting list by my NHS dentist.I called gentle dental to explain my problem and they offered me a same day appointment. They were kind, compassionate, understanding, patient and validating. I’m not sure anybody ever feels completely comfortable in the chair, but It’s the closest I’ve ever come!The work needed was carried out, all of the staff were kind and welcoming, and it showed me that the dentist doesn’t have to be a dreaded place!Thank you so, so much gentle dental! I will definitely be returning.

Dental Implants - 3 New Teeth - June 2022I had the most professional and pain free experience when getting my new tooth implants at Gentle Dental. Honestly I put it off for some many years because I just didn't want to go through the pain. But my experience was totally the opposite. Ali and the wonderful girls were there every step of the way. All my questions got answered and I was reassured everything would work out well. And it did. I was worried for no reason.I did think about going abroad to have it done but when you consider the risk factor, time and professional standards - it made no sense to me. I have known Ali for a long time and knew I would be in the best hands and if there were any issues these would could be resolved easily.If you are thinking of having dental implants at Gentle - don't waste any more time. Just book and get it done.Was it painful ? No, uncomfortable for a few days, yes for sure.I just wish I had it done sooner. Thanks guys, love my new teeth 🙂

Can't thank this practice enough for all their help. I don't post reviews very often, so when I do, it's because an impression has been left! Dr Ali saw me at short notice to help fix a broken tooth. The nurse (I think her name was Danni) was so helpful and kind, as were the rest of the team. Thank you for being there for me in my hour of need (the same day i asked for an appointment!)

I have been using this dentist for well over a decade and can honestly say my teeth would be in a far worse situation if wasn’t for the Gentle Dental practice.My most recent visit was for a filling .. barely felt the injection!I would highly recommend this dentist to anyone, but especially if you’re teeth require a high level of care like mine.

This place was recommended to me by family and for a nervous patient the best experience. The reception welcome is cheerful and friendly, beautifully modern area with hot drinks and water on offer.I needed implants, crowns and bridges followed by whitening, so lots of appointments. My dentist Mr Ali Rafai was superb from start to finish, so professional and personable. Throughout the whole process I was cared for wonderfully plus lots of laughs along the way. The constant care during appointments was very comforting, no rushing, and I knew I my needs were Mr Rafai's priority. Plus check up call the next day without fail to make sure everything was going well.Absolutely deserves five stars!

Fantastic experience with Ali. It took 18 months including bone grafting, removing and replacing failed dental implants, invisaline for my bottom teeth which were all over the place and some veneers but now I'm delighted with the outcome.Ali was always very clear about how this wasn't an overnight solution in an honest and forthright manner which gave me confidence that he would deliver results.I was offered several overnight solutions from other dentists locally at a fraction of the cost but when I see how much effort and detail that went into my plan, I know i made the right choice.
