Our Treatments

Dental Implants

From single implants to full mouth reconstructions in the same day with All-on-Four. Teeth in a Day is the graftless way to replace an entire row of missing teeth in one go.


Not just your average Invisalign Dentist, The Gentle Dental has been awarded Platinum Invisalign status. As a result, you can expect cheaper prices as we have fitted more Invisalign braces that your average dentist.


Do you have discoloured, worn or gappy teeth? Create your perfect smile with veneers. We offer minimally invasive veener applications that intend to keep the original tooth structure in tact.

Replace Missing Teeth in One Day

Patients from all over Surrey and London come to our practice for same-day missing teeth solutions. As implant dentists, we are most proud to offer the All-on-Four system, which allows patients to leave with a full set of new teeth just after one appointment.

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.
