10 Reasons Our Patients Choose Us
We like to put our patients first and focus on world-class dentistry delivered with 5-star service. Here are some of the reasons patients choose the London smile difference!
1Bespoke smile design
Everyone’s ideal smile is different. We will discover your preferences and take your whole appearance into consideration. We can then provide you not only with an attractive smile but the one that suits you best. We use interactive computer imaging to design and simulate your chosen ideal smile before we touch a tooth.
2Beautiful and predictable results
A seamless process has been developed to transform your computer-designed smile into a 3D preview model, which in turn is recreated in the final result. Clients are invited to give feedback at every step of the way. All this careful planning ensures the most predictable results possible.
3Radical results, kind to teeth
Cosmetic dentistry techniques are now more conservative than ever before. Especially when coupled with rapid orthodontic prealignment even the most radical transformation can still be minimally invasive.
So whether you wish to straighten crowded teeth, close gaps, change gum levels or replacing missing teeth, it’s amazing how much can be done. Just browse or portfolio and see for yourself!
4Dental health and beauty
Successful cosmetic dentistry is not just make-up for teeth. For a smile to be attractive, confident and lasting, the health of the teeth, gums and freshness of breath is just as important as the appearance of the teeth. We therefore take steps to actively promote your dental health. This way your new smile will not only look good now but for many years to come.
The London Smile Clinic was set up to make cosmetic dentistry an enjoyable experience for clients and staff alike. We strive to make treatments as comfortable as possible and take the time to be gentle. Our clients often comment on how relaxing they find the whole experience.
6First class service
First class service is paramount to our philosophy. So whether it’s an express service, finance options, flexible appointments or travel arrangements we will do whatever we can to make the whole experience as seamless as possible.

A digital photograph of your smile is taken at the consultation and manipulated on-screen using a high spec graphics program. Your direct feedback as the design develops allows us to create and refine the image of your ideal smile in front of your eyes. We take great care to show you only predictable results.
X-Ray & CT-Scan
The London Smile Clinic has invested in a state-of-the-art digital OPG and CT scanner with Cephalometric arm. This allows us to take very clear 3D and 2D images for advanced diagnosis and treatment planning at a very low x-ray dose. Patients benefit from precise virtual 3d planning that gives the best possible treatment outcomes.
The OPG X-ray gives us a panoramic view of the upper and lower jaws. It is used to asses bone levels, impacted wisdom teeth and tooth roots, for orthodontic and implant treatment planning.
The Cephalometric X-ray is primarily used to calculate how the jaw and surrounding bone will be affected by orthodontic treatment.
The CT scanner uses x-rays and a computer to produce 3D cross sectional images of the jaws and teeth. CT scans are essential for the accurate planning, diagnosis and placement of dental implants. The scans measure the depth, density and width of the jaw bone, and more importantly the depth of bone in the proximity of nerve canals and sinus cavities in a 3D view to an accuracy of 0.1 mm
This sophisticated device provides much more useful information about your bite than any other technique. Traditional bite recording paper will only mark where there are contacts between teeth. The T-Scan not only shows where the contacts are but how hard they are and the order in which the contacts occur. This offers a level of precision in developing and adjusting a stable bite that was previously unachievable.
JVA (Joint Vibration Analysis)
This is an elegantly simple device that can quickly give us precise and detailed information about the health of the jaw joints (TMJ). Jaw joint problems sometimes make noises you are aware of such as pops or clicks, but also low level noise that you won’t be able to hear. Accurate diagnosis of these problems is essential in planning the correct approach to treatment.
The laser is a very precise and powerful tool used to correct gum levels, treat gum disease and stop bleeding. As the beam is highly focused it causes much less trauma, post-operative swelling and discomfort than conventional treatments. We use the highest independently rated laser system imported from the USA.
Painless Anaesthesia – The Wand
Painful and ineffective injections of the past were responsible for many dental phobias. This local anaesthesia delivery system combined with precise and gentle techniques enables us to keep discomfort and stress levels to an absolute minimum.
X-Rite shade-matching technology helps to accurately record the colour of the natural teeth. This helps our ceramist produce carefully colour-matched miniature works of porcelain artistry.
Centre of excellence
BACD – British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry
All our cosmetic dentists at The London Smile Clinic are members of the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (BACD) of which Dr Tim Bradstock-Smith is a key founder member and Accreditation examiner. Dr Zaki Kanaan is the current president and Dr Andrew Chandrapal is on the board of directors. The BACD aims to promote clinical excellence through continuing professional development. As an affiliate of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, BACD dentists are part of the World’s largest organisation of cosmetic dental professionals.
American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry
The AACD is an international organisation providing a forum for excellence in the ‘Art and Science of Cosmetic Dentistry’. Specific purposes are to support and advance standards of integrity and leadership in cosmetic dentistry; to provide comprehensive and innovative educational opportunities; to encourage and support research in all phases of cosmetic dentistry; and to disseminate information on cosmetic dentistry to the profession and the public. We regularly attend their scientific sessions in the US and Tim is Accredited with both the AACD and BACD.
Evidence-based dentistry is a fundamental ethic that involves staying up to date through continuing education and choosing only the approach to treatment, the techniques and those materials that have been proven to be the most appropriate and successful through scientific research. We firmly believe in evidence-based dentistry and recommend this approach to all dental practitioners.
Our study group provides a forum for our dentists to learn and compare notes on all the latest developments. We regularly meet to review latest research, discuss individual cases and agree a consensus regarding the best clinical techniques.
21st Century Smiles
London Smile Clinic has been at the forefront of a cosmetic dentistry revolution, bringing our patients treatments which are less expensive, less invasive and provide greater results.
We introduced the Inman Aligner to the UK along with our partners and as a result trained over 3000 dentists to use the device in the UK and overseas. The removable orthodontic appliance with its incredibly rapid results have proven to be hugely popular with our patients. Along with this, other rapid orthodontic treatments, as well as discreet teeth straightening solutions, have seen a huge increase in demand. This led to London Smile Clinic opening a separate orthodontic department with two specialist teeth straightening experts. At present, we carry out nearly as many orthodontic treatments as cosmetic dentistry, with teeth straightening being a big part of cosmetic smile makeovers.FREE MINI CONSULTATION
