State-of-the-art technology

We use the latest dental technology to offer our patients greater comfort and convenience, while helping us to provide treatments that are faster, safer and with predictable results.


The T-Scan helps us check how hard a patient bites down. It enables the dentist to spot any problems with how your teeth come together, which could cause issues like jaw pain, teeth grinding, headaches, and problems with dental work. By using the T-Scan, we can tailor a treatment plan to specifically target these problems, giving you an improved and more comfortable bite.

iTero scanner

The iTero scanner provides a minimally invasive way to capture images inside your mouth, creating a 3D model of your teeth and gums, without the need for messy impressions. If you’re considering Invisalign aligners, you’ll be able to preview your new smile before you start your treatment. The iTero scanner can also be used for treatments such as dental implants, crowns and bridges.

Creating beautiful smiles for more than 25 years

Perfecting your smile can go a long way towards boosting your confidence and improving your quality of life. If you’ve spent years hiding your smile and dreading anyone pointing a camera in your direction, we know you’ll be delighted with the comprehensive range of smile makeover treatments at Thorpe Lea Dental in Staines.

Your journey with Thorpe Lea Dental

Whether you're comfortable visiting the dentist, you're a nervous patient, or someone in between; we'll make sure you feel comfortable and at ease with the very best patient experience with us.

Book an Appointment

Once we’ve booked your appointment, we’ll email you a welcome pack 3 days before your visit, with some new patient forms for you to complete and send back to us, or we can send your welcome pack via post. Your first appointment will take around 1.5 hours.


Meet and Greet

Your dentist will greet you, take you into the surgery, and introduce you to your nurse. The dentist will have already reviewed your new patient forms and will have a chat with you about your medical history, oral health habits, and anything else they need to know.


Dental Examination

This involves an examination of your teeth looking for signs of any decay and existing restorations, and a basic gum check to gauge if you need to return for a more in-depth periodontal exam. We’ll also take a full oral digital scan and intra-oral photos.


Your result

Once we’ve completed the initial exam, we’ll have a chat with you about our thoughts on further tests or treatments based on your photos, scans, and exam notes. You’ll also get the chance to ask us any questions you might have, and further appointments will be booked. 


2nd appointment

This appointment is for a detailed gum pocket examination, and we’ll also get some digital extra-oral photos taken to help us to record your gum level, smile, and any improvements you want to make. We’ll also thoroughly clean your teeth with our EMS Airflow machine.

Treatment Plan

Based on previous appointments and discussions, your dentist will put together a detailed treatment plan including suggested treatments, cost estimates, and timeframe. You’ll also have the option of joining our membership plan to spread out the cost of your treatment.


Your Treatment

Once you’re happy to proceed, your journey to a lovely new smile will begin! Your treatments will be booked in and you’ll have the support and care of our friendly staff throughout your course of treatment – we want you to have an exceptional experience with us and achieve results you’re proud of.
