Decaying, Rotten "bad" Teeth

Society tends to put a lot of value on bright, perfect smiles, which can result in patients perceiving bad teeth as a source of embarrassment, with some even afraid to show the dentist. Let’s change that.

Saving Rotten Teeth

Let’s be honest; misshapen, decaying or rotting teeth affect your life and self-confidence. In addition, the way your teeth look affects how you feel about yourself and how others perceive you too. But what’s not common knowledge are the several easy procedures that won’t break the bank and reverse the effects of decayed teeth for good.



  • Dental veneers from £990
  • Composite bonding from as low as £299
  • Dental implants from £1,900
  • Root canals from £950

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.

Permanent teeth are supposed to last a lifetime

Once our permanent teeth emerge, they are supposed to last a lifetime. But as dentists, we understand and know that that’s not always possible, and thankfully modern dentistry has supplied us with the tools to keep our dentition intact for longer.

Sometimes, damage may occur, or unforeseen circumstances might limit the life of a tooth. For example, gum disease, decay and tooth breakages cause problems that often involve cosmetic and general dentistry coming together to correct.

Dental pain can be acutely painful for some, and you might believe that the tooth is beyond saving, but you can trust there’s always something the dentist can do to repair your smile.

And whilst aesthetics are an important part of your smile, by ignoring rotten or bad teeth, you can put yourself at risk for more complications in the future:

A seriously chipped tooth often leaves the internal structure of the tooth exposed, which invites bacteria to invade and destruct. We often see infections arise as your tooth becomes more prone to cavities.

Also, damage to the nerve of the tooth is also common, with dental abscesses forming in some cases, which is dangerous to your overall general health.

You could cause an infection. Since a seriously chipped tooth often leaves the inner structure of the tooth exposed, it is more vulnerable to cavities and infections. You could damage the nerve of the tooth or an abscess can even form, which is extremely dangerous to your health.

If you let gum disease progress from gingivitis, you’ve missed the window where we can abolish and reverse gum disease for good.

As soon as gum disease progresses to periodontitis we will only be able to manage your symptoms and prevent the condition from getting worse.

Cavities certainly do not disappear on their own. Instead, they only get bigger and bigger. And the bigger a cavity gets, the more serious issues you will experience with the health of your teeth, gums and even other parts of the body. 

Waiting will only increase your pain, expense and further risks to your health.

There are lifelong consequences for ignoring gaps caused by tooth loss in the mouth.

  • The bone beneath the missing tooth will begin to deplete, which is an irreversible process referred to as resorption.
  • Other neighbouring teeth can begin to move and shift out of their natural positions.
  • The risk of gum disease and decay heightens.
  • Bite force is not evenly distributed, which adds pressure to other teeth, causing them to break.
  • You are at risk for losing more teeth.
