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.

All your treatment options for pointed teeth

If it’s true that you’re unhappy with the shape of your pointed teeth, it just might be time to do something about it – and thankfully, we have affordable treatments to create the tooth shape you desire.

When it comes to tooth reshaping there are many routes we can take, depending if you want a permanent fix or one that will last several years.

Let’s talk you through them below:

Also referred to as teeth bonding, the composite approach describes the process of building up composite resin adhesive onto the tooth to reshape them as you please.

Composite bonding has grown in popularity over the years, and is frequently chosen by patients who want veneers, but do not want to permanently affect their smile. This is because composite bonding lasts around 5-7 years.

However, if you’re looking for an instant, fast way to reshape your pointed teeth, tooth bonding can alter the shape and correct the points with added resin.

Whilst cosmetic contouring or filing can sound scary, it’s actually a simply, yet oh so effective procedure that has incredible power to transform the look and feel of your smile. 

Also referred to as an enameloplasty, the gentle tooth contouring method is probably one of the cheapest options to fix your smile.

Pain-free and often completed in one sitting, cosmetic contouring is carried almost every day at our dental clinic in East Molesey, with patients being blown away by the results and how simple it was to achieve.

Porcelain veneers might be a costly way to fix any insecurities with your smile, but it’s also hailed as one of the best, and for good reason.

Porcelain veneers can often great strength, resilience and longevity. More than that, they’ll be the most natural-like enhancement you’ll be able to find. 

Dental veneers come in varying brands, sizes and materials; the best being porcelain, which comes in various thicknesses (often only 0.5mm thick).

Veneer Consultations with one of Surrey's best

Our go-to cosmetic dentist Dr Marshall will personally take the time to accurately plan your treatment using advanced imaging technology that helps speed up the process and predict better outcomes.  Not only can we address your insecurities during the consultation and provide you with a roadmap to a better-looking smile, but one that serves you better for many, many years to come. 

Here’s a breakdown of each stage of the veneer process:

1. Full Smile Evaluation

Here, we will uncover any underlying issues with your smile, telling us which kind of veneer treatment will be the most appropriate. Dr Marshall will take x-ray photographs alongside a soft tissue evaluation. We’ll also take a face bow record to study your bite.

2. Smile Analysis

The Gentle Dental utilises digital smile design software that allows our patients to see a preview of their smile makeover before we make it permanent – this helps patients to feel more in control of the final results and helps them to achieve precisely what they want.

3. Shade selection

When opting for veneers to perfect an even smile, you can decide on the shape, colour and comfort of fit. Once you’ve decided on the details, we’ll take an impression of the approved temporaries to send to the master ceramist technician, who will hand-make your porcelain shells.

4. The fit visit 

Before we bond your veneers permanently to your teeth, we’ll conduct a last check of fit, colour and shape to make any necessary adjustments. You can preview the look with a trial smile before we make the final restoration. Veneers will typically last 15 years.

A note from the dentist

What to consider before your treatment

We would like to highlight that the process of fixing pointed teeth is considered a cosmetic choice and is in no way necessary for your dental health. However, as dentists, who carry out this kind of procedure daily, we know how powerful the smile can be.

When you have bad, uneven teeth or even pointed teeth, you can sometimes feel insecure, or afraid to show off your smile – and we probably understand this better than anyone.

Cosmetic dentists would not exist if people did not want to feel better about their smile, so we’re here for you and can help carve out a path to your dream smile in a way that suits your lifestyle and budget.

Here at the Gentle Dental, we will always provide our patients with clear and honest advice regarding their treatments of choice they may have researched online. For example, the teeth contour option is an incredible method. However, it’s simply not for everyone as it could weaken your teeth without the right conditions.

Whatever you decide, please always start with a consultation.
