I have been with the Gentle Dental Practice for 8 years, the care and service I have received has always been 5 star. I have recently used their new hygienist Nicky who is great. Looking for a new dentist just contact their very friendly and proffessional team.

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’m so happy to find this practice. I suffer from anxiety and high sensitivity to pain. It was very stressful for me going to dentist after years of fear. The team not only make me calm and welcome but I FELL ASLEEP during treatment with Dr Marshall ! So understanding and caring. Thank you!

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.

Caring for your chipped or broken tooth

If there’s one thing we know is restorative and cosmetic dentists is how painful and uncomfortable it can be to chip, break or crack a tooth.

It’s very easy for teeth to become damaged, and it can happen in a number of ways. For patients who need urgent tooth repair, see our credible dentists in East Molesey today.

We’re always here to help. Call 020 8224 7562.

Rinse your mouth with warm water immediately, next apply pressure to the area to stop any bleeding, then place a cold compress to prevent any swelling.

If you have the piece of the broken tooth, conceal it in some wet gauze and bring it to us – we may be able to save it.

We would advise using gauze to hold the crown and replace it back into the socket (if you can). If the tooth appears dirty, you can give it a rinse, but do not clean it.

If it is impossible for you to place it back into your mouth, place it back into a glass of milk or water and try to get an emergency dentist appointment within half an hour.

However, if some time has passed we can replace a missing tooth with a dental implant, or conceal chips with cosmetic procedures like veneers.

What not to do

  • Chew on the tooth OR bite down on hard foods
  • Drink very hot or cold beverages
  • Avoid touching the exposed tooth root

It only takes 2 minutes to apply, and you’ll get an answer immediately – applying for a loan has never been easier. 0% finance is available for many treatments up to £30,000. Credit decisions will be subject to individual circumstances. You must be over 18 and earn an income to apply.

When to seek treatment

Common teeth that break are molars in the lower jaw; this is mainly down to their sharp cusps that grind into the grooves of the upper molars. However, any tooth can crack, from incisors to canines.

What might not be visible to the eye is where cracks run from the root to the pulp chamber – these cracks can even be symptomless and confused for other dental conditions like cavities or tooth sensitivity.

Generally speaking, the wider and deeper the crack or break is, the more urgent it will be to seek treatment. For example, patients experiencing severe chipping where most of the tooth has broken off may be at risk for tooth loss and jaw problems due to a pressure build-up.

Dental Fillings/Bonding

Sometimes, when only a small piece of tooth enamel has broken off, it might be more advisable to undergo dental bonding or filling procedures, which repair the tooth quickly and cost-effectively. Using a tooth coloured composite resin, chips and cracks in teeth are restored in as little as one appointment. However, compared to other cosmetic procedures like veneers, bonding is not as long-lasting or considered a permanent option. Read more.

Dental cap or crown

Covering the entire tooth like a cap, dental crowns sit above the gum line and can be used to conceal the damage where a tooth is severely damaged and cannot be repaired with a filling. Even if the tooth is cracked from an injury or accident, crowns can be used to hold the tooth together. To have a crown fitted, the tooth size will need to be reduced for the crown to slot over. Crowns are made from highly durable materials that are long-lasting and natural-looking. Read more.
