3Shape TRIOS ® 4 intraoral scanner
Our new intraoral scanner takes dental treatments to a new level. This wireless scanner has a built-in aid for detecting surface caries using advanced fluorescent technology. With this scanner, we can detect a cavity before it starts forming. It also includes an instant heat tip with instant heat technology for optimised scanning. We can also accurately track changes in your teeth and help with the early detection of oral conditions. Our team uses the TRIOS ®4 for restorations, orthodontics, and implantology.
3Shape Trios® 3 intraoral scanner
Say goodbye to messy dental impressions! The Trios® intraoral scanner is one more way we ensure you have the best quality dental care. Traditionally, dental impressions have required that we take a physical impression of your mouth that is then sent to a lab to create your crowns, appliances, and clear aligners, but not anymore. The digital scans are much more accurate, they are environmentally friendly and patient friendly (no more gagging). Our dentists are able to better monitor your oral health for example gum recession and wearing down of teeth due to erosion and grinding. Dr Mark Bowes is a Key Opinion Leader for Trios®.
The Asiga MAX is known for being the world’s advanced 3D printer with exceptional productivity and a small footprint.

The printer utilises UV LEDs to provide a sharper detail definition, accuracy, and production reliability.
Tekscan™ T-scan™ occlusal analysis system
This dental scan device gives our dentists accurate 2D and 3D representations of bite forces complete with timing information relative to dental occlusion. This valuable information is needed to easily determine and restore the perfect balance of the patient’s bite. Our dentists can detect potential problems with the bite, which can be related to muscular skeletal issues in the neck and back. The T-scan™ can also show potential areas for tooth fracture.
Orthophos® SL dental cone beam/ 3D scans
Enamel Dentistry has always been at the forefront of dental innovation, we are delighted to be able to offer 3D X-rays using our Orthophos® SL 3D machine.
This is a state-of-the-art dental scanner and is used by the cosmetic dental surgeons, Dr Mark Bowes and Dr Sheryl Smithies for Digital Smile Design cases, implant and restorative cases. It is also used by the Endodontist for root canal treatments. Dental cone beam computed tomography (CT) is a special type of X-ray equipment used when regular dental or facial X-rays are not sufficient. Your doctor may use this technology to produce 3D images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan. Cone beam CT has the advantage of lower radiation exposure compared to conventional CT.

BiolaseⓇ Epic 10™ Diode Laser
The Epic 10 diode laser is an effective diode system widely used across the globe.
Aside from its applications in soft tissue management, dental professionals worldwide highly recommend the Epic 10 for reducing periodontal bacterial levels (decontamination) and inflammation.
We utilise this versatile instrument for pain relief, laser-assisted teeth whitening/ bleaching procedures, and abscess incision and drainage.
With a microscope, dental procedures can be performed more accurately and reliably using variable and adjustable magnification. This will increase the following:
Magnified Image – Microscopes provide 3 x to 30 x magnification with the ability to change views with a simple turn of a dial. Microscopes offer a deeper depth of field view and a wider field of view than traditional dental loupes.
Increased Precision – The increased magnification allows the endodontist to access small, narrow canal opening without unnecessarily removing tooth structure. Debris that must be removed from the root canal before filling the root canal space is also more easily identified.
Improved Illumination – When magnification is used, the available light is spread out and the image appears darker. To compensate for this, an LED light is mounted directly on the microscope head and provides a bright, white light.
Improved Visualisation – Endodontists can only treat what they can see. The microscope lens can be placed directly over the patient’s mouth without any additional discomfort.
As part of your smile journey, we will capture videos of you as well as digital photographs. The videos help the dentists to assess your smile whilst you are in motion and acting naturally – rather than depending on still photography where a smile is often staged. This is an important step in Digital Smile Design, as we will take videos during your mock–up (test drive appointment) and you will be able to visualise yourself with your new smile.
A digital photograph of your smile is taken at the consultation and manipulated on-screen using a specially designed 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.

Ultimately, the DSD app assists us to predict the final results of your smile restoration and collaborate with you in creating your new smile.
Digital Painless anaesthesia
The state-of-the-art digital platform for local anesthesia, The Wand® Computer Assisted Anesthesia System replaces the painful and ineffective injections of the past, that were responsible for many dental phobias. This local anesthesia delivery system combined with precise and gentle techniques enables us to keep discomfort and stress levels to an absolute minimum.
The Velopex® Aquacare Twin uses air abrasion to perform a variety of pain free minimally invasive dental treatments. One of the many advantages of air abrasion is that the patient doesn’t hear any noise or feel any vibration. Air abrasion works like a tiny sandblaster. Compressed air and an abrasive powder wear decay off your tooth. The procedure is relatively simple and quick.
