Digital Smile Design (DSD)

Enamel Clinic was the 1st practice in South Africa to use this exciting concept and is South Africa’s only Digital Smile Design official clinic. Dr Bowes is one of the very few dentists in the world to become a Digital Smile Design (DSD) Instructor – he teaches dentists all over the world about the benefits of DSD. 


Digital Photography and state-of-the-art computer imaging software are used to create the perfect smile. Each patient’s teeth are positioned in the most Aesthetic and Functional position. Digital Smile Design seeks to present a new face of dentistry- a more natural, emotional and artistic approach. One cannot and should not underestimate the importance of a healthy smile.


Dr Mark Bowes said: “DSD is the starting point of all dental rehabilitation, for both simple and complex cases. For many dentists, treatment planning resulted in compromises of both Aesthetics and Function. With DSD, we now have a truly Facially Driven Planning process which can guarantee perfect results. DSD allows us to make Multidisciplinary decisions that most cases need and is the perfect tool for communication with the entire Dental Team. Minimally Invasive Dentistry is my passion, and without doubt, DSD is the driving force to ensure tooth preservation in all cases.


The most powerful use of Digital Smile Design (DSD) is the emotional benefits we see when we allow our patients to be involved in the treatment process. We live in a world where communication is key; DSD is the perfect language!”

Porcelain Veneers

A veneer is a new front surface for a tooth, custom made from porcelain. Veneers can be used to correct broken, discoloured and malaligned  teeth. They can also be made extremely thin using minimally invasive technology. Their strength and appearance rivals that of natural teeth and they are used to make long lasting changes to the smile.

Dr Mark Bowes is a key opinion leader for e.max veneers and regularly host webinars and workshops for them.

Aesthetic Bonding

Aesthetic composite bonding including Composite Resin Veneers.

This is a process where a composite resin is applied to one or more teeth that have become discoloured or physically damaged. The plastic resin will be tooth-coloured to blend in, and your teeth can be bonded for numerous reasons. If they’re chipped, fractured, discoloured or worn through grinding, this cosmetic solution may be a great supplement to an improved smile.  Composite resin bonding can also be a fast, minimally invasive and inexpensive option if porcelain veneers are too expensive.

Frequently asked questions

Will tooth whitening procedure’s whiten existing crowns, veneers etc?

Professional  Tooth  Whitening  treatments  have  been  successful  at  removing  stains  from  crowns, veneers or bonded teeth. However, a whitening treatment in general cannot change the colour of the crowns, veneers or bonds. We recommend that you discuss your situation with our dentist to determine what you can expect.


Can I undergo tooth whitening procedures if I am pregnant?

While there are no known constraints for pregnant women, some may experience gum sensitivity. Pregnant women may wish to defer having the procedure until after pregnancy.


How do I maintain my new white teeth?

We stock various whitening products such as toothpastes and mouth rinses. Brush your teeth twice daily or after each meal. Floss daily. Visit your dentist/hygienist for regular cleanings and check-ups (recommended: every 6 months).


Is tooth whitening for everyone?

Tooth whitening is a safe, comfortable way to get a bright, white smile. Results and treatment time may vary depending on the level of staining and whiteness desired. Crowns, bridges, fillings, and veneers will not whiten. We recommend visiting our dentist / hygienist to discuss your options.


Will tooth whitening cause tooth sensitivity?

Some patients experience slight sensitivity during or after treatment. If sensitivity occurs, it is often temporary and will go away once you’ve completed the whitening process. Our products include desensitising ingredients such as potassium nitrate and fluoride to help reduce sensitivity and provide additional comfort.
