I've never had such professional people looking after my smile before

5 50 Dental Implants

Well here I am, 11 months into my treatment consisting of almost a full mouth of dental implants. I did months of research before I chose this practice, I knew it was a huge undertaking and commitment and I was extremely nervous. I've had easy appointments and I've had more difficult appointments but throughout my treatment I never felt any discomfort or pain. And most importantly I trusted my Doctors.

The chairs that I have my treatment in are out of this world! So comfy I've even nodded off during treatment and had to be poked awake! I'm not saying it's fun but it's as good as it can get at this surgery. I will be grateful forever for the wonderful care and expertise I receive here. I'm almost finished treatment, as I write this today, my implants are about to have the first fitting tomorrow and I'm so excited. I've carefully chosen from the options available, with expert advice and after a whole year

I will finally have a perfect smile again. I'm 66 now and a smoker so if I can do it, so can you! It's the best decision of my life. I'd like to say a special thank you to Doctor Aziz, who has looked after me so well, he can make you laugh through the whole process, which is a gift in itself. The prices were completely fair when the standard of treatment is considered. I've never had such professional people looking after my smile before! Thank you to everyone at Cathedral Road Dentist for an unforgettable experience! I wish I could give you 10 stars and a trophy!

I am delighted with the results

5 50 Dentist Consultation

I have just finished treatment with Dr Kolahi for cosmetic dentistry and extensive work that was necessary before the cosmetic could be done. Dr Kolahi and her team have been amazing with me throughout, being so mindful of my fear of dentistry at all times. I am delighted with the results. I have a healthy mouth and a much improved natural smile! Highly recommend this Dental practise. Thank you Dr Kolahi, Debby.

Thanks, guys.

I have never had such efficient and high-quality dental care

5 50 Root Canals, Zirconia Crown

I had an upper premolar repaired with what I understand is a Zirconium Porcelain crown. This involved root canal work which was totally painless (after the initial injection). The crown itself is totally perfect; indistinguishable from a natural tooth in every aspect.

I also had a filling replaced that had been done by a previous dentist. I'd never been happy with this filling before. It always felt rough and unfinished - but Dr Lesti is a perfectionist and after replacing the filling he refinished it so carefully that you can't tell it's there.

I went privately, so I won't pretend it's not costly, but I wanted the best and I think it was worth it.

I've been a bit phobic of dentists and have tended to avoid dental visits because I've had some bad experiences. I did a lot of research before choosing this clinic, I think that paid off because I have never had such efficient and high-quality dental care.

There aren't enough superlatives to describe how I feel about this clinic and I'm delighted to have finally found one that I can trust. I'm going back soon to have another filling replaced.

Before I agreed to anything, she made sure I was fully aware of what the procedure would entail

5 50 Lingual Braces

A friend of mine recommended this dental practice, so I chose them for my lingual braces. I’ve already had the braces fitted and it was worth the price. I actually ended up paying less here than I would have at my regular dentist. There were no additional costs after we agreed on the final package.

Cathedral Dental was very good. The facilities were clean and well-run. My dentist was also really nice and she explained it all. Before I agreed to anything, she made sure I was fully aware of what the procedure would entail (which was reassuring). I still go back for follow-ups these days, and everything’s going well.

Dear Rebecca, Thank you for your kind review. We're happy to hear that you are pleased with the service you received at Cathedral Dental Clinic. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

My tooth was carefully repaired by the nice dentist

5 50 Fillings

One of my old fillings had fallen off and the dentist here was kind enough to schedule an appointment on the same day. He carefully checked my teeth and then squeezed me in for a slot that suited my busy day. The price I paid was not exactly what I found online, but this is because he found some other problems that needed fixing. I think the dentist did fillings for another tooth as well. So I didn’t pay the cost displayed on the website, but this is not because they changed the prices, but rather because I had a slightly different treatment when I arrived.

I felt very comfortable during my visit. The toilets were clean and the people who greeted me at the reception were rather friendly. My tooth was carefully repaired by the nice dentist. I didn’t need any follow-up visits and experienced no negative effects afterward.

Thank you very much for your review. We are are pleased to hear you enjoyed your first visit to the clinic and we look forward to welcoming you back again. Thank you again from all at Cathedral Dental Clinic.

Efficient and clearly explained treatment

5 50 Wisdom Tooth Extraction

I had booked an appointment at Cathedral Dental Clinic after waiting months to have my wisdom tooth removed on the NHS and with increasing pain in the tooth. Dr. Lesti was able to see me within a few days and after the initial appointment, I returned the next day to have my tooth removed. Everything was explained clearly and the extraction only took a few minutes. I recommend the clinic for efficient and clearly explained treatment!

The clinic is welcoming and professional. Waiting time for appointments is days (rather than weeks as I have experienced in the past). I have had three appointments so far and each has been on time. Dr. Lesti clearly explained every stage of the treatment I required and set out a plan for future treatment that I can book when it suits me. I will be moving the whole family over to this clinic!

it is a pleasure being a client

Extractions, Dentures, Hygienist Session

I am a teeth grinder , even in daytime. It had got to the point (I had split a tooth vertically at one time ) that I had lost most of the teeth on my left side and had a very loose tooth awaiting extraction – I was nervous( I have a small mouth opening – it can be painful to have treatment for me if I have to keep my mouth open for a long time and difficult for the dentist to gain access )
Dr Lesti is wonderful – He explained every procedure, gave me several options ( my choice with no judgement) and ALWAYS checked/made sure I had a signal if I found a procedure painful( I didn’t) or difficult( again he took his time with breaks inbetween) I had an extraction and subsequently had a partial denture .I cannot tell you how happy I am with the result – I feel normal( I dont mean to sound dramatic but it has made me more confident in smiling , helped me eat better – I dont bite my cheek )Thank you so much xxx
Also I have attended for Dental Hygiene and all other Hygienist seem to rush and do the minimum but Samantha was fab – she took her time and I felt at the end that she had really made a difference Thank you xxx The reception and Assistance staff were all so friendly and reassuring – it is a pleasure being a client xxxxThank you all

Ceramic Brace from

Ceramic braces are a cosmetic alternative to the common metal braces. They are made of tooth colour brackets and archwires and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces.

Tooth coloured wires are attached to the front surfaces of your teeth through ceramic brackets. These wires are tightened over time, applying gentle pressure to the teeth which encourages them to move into a straighter position. Ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper front teeth than on lower teeth.

from £2500

Cfast™ from

Cfast is one of the several fixed orthodontic treatments that we offer at Cathedral Dental Clinic.

Cfast uses fixed clear orthodontic brackets and tooth-coloured nickel-titanium wires, which make the braces virtually invisible. The nickel-titanium wires put gentle pressure on the brackets to level and align the teeth with minimal discomfort to the patient.

Smile TRU (invisible braces) from

Smile TRU is another invisible braces or clear orthodontic system, offered at Cathedral Dental Clinic is Smile TRU. It is similar to Invisalign which is designed for closing gaps and straightening crooked teeth. The advantage of these invisible braces is that they concentrate on the upper and lower front 8 teeth. This allows a much faster treatment period for patients of all ages.

Smile TRU uses three-dimensional modelling to generate a series of clear aligners or “clear braces”. They are often referred to by many patients as “invisible braces”. The clear removable aligners are custom made and replaced every 2 weeks. Over time, they move your teeth into a position that gives you straight teeth, worthy of a big smile.

from £1800

Invisalign (Removable Clear Braces) from

Invisalign is a clear orthodontic system for closing gaps and straightening crooked teeth. It is a removable, clear and cosmetic alternative to traditional fixed braces, similar to Smile TRU.

The term lingual braces refers to the attachment of custom made braces on the inner surface of the tooth, inside the mouth where they are totally inconspicuous.
