Trios Scanner at Atlantic Dental
Painless Private Dentist Cornwall, General and specialist dentistry

Our practice is very well equipped-for the benefit of the patient but without the premium price tag. Amongst many other things we have digital x-ray equipment including  CT-Scanner, intra-oral scanner and our laboratory has a digital printer. More importantly, we take customer service very serious! When you visit us you’ll agree…

As a “digital practice” we have an intra-oral scanner which means you don’t have to endure these messy impressions any more!

We also have digital X-rays which reduces the radiation you get when X-rays are taken, significantly!
And finally, we have a small dental laboratory on site to offer same day denture repairs and other services. 

Our principal dentist Dr Nelz has 25 years of experience in dentistry. Especially complete oral rehabilitation (reconstruction of severely neglected mouths/teeth)  often under General Anaesthesia has been the main field of his work. He placed his first dental implant in 1997!   

We use high-quality materials and instruments.  General dentistry such as tooth coloured fillings or inlays. Root canal treatments under Rubber-Dam and microscope. We can scan your whole mouth in 2  min with our intra-oral scanner. For implant planning, we use 3-D imaging (CBCT). Apart from conventional single tooth implants we are also offering “Teeth-in-a-day” (All on four, All on six).

Crowded teeth, unhappy with your smile?   Parallel to Implant Training Dr Nelz underwent training for Teeth Straightening (Orthodontics) using fixed and removable braces. We offer short term aesthetic orthodontic treatments with fixed braces or clear aligners.   To compliment cosmetic dental treatments our aesthetic branch Atlantic Beauty offers facial rejuvenation (Botox, Dermal Fillers).

We can offer treatments for nearly every budget and every case.

Affordable private Dentist in Newquay Cornwall: From fillings to full mouth implants to telescopic dentures. In some cases with limited options (i.e. loose teeth due to Gum Disease), we can offer fibre-reinforced composite restorations.

Dr Nelz has undergone training in orthodontic treatment starting in 1996. He has been utilizing fixed and removable appliances to treat children and adults. At present we are offering mainly short term cosmetic teeth straightening treatment with clear aligners and/or fixed braces.  If you are looking for general dentistry without the use of Amalgam due to its mercury content we can offer composite (tooth coloured) fillings. If the damage to a tooth is very big it might be appropriate to use ceramic restorations such as inlays or crowns.

Cosmetic Dentistry:

We are offering Cosmetic Dentistry at a very high-level starting with digital smile design. We take photos and digital impressions to simulate the possible results of the treatment. The patient can then look at the photos before committing to any treatment.

As an affordable private Dental Clinic, Dental Implant treatments are one of our main areas of work and since opening the practice in 2007 Dr Nelz has treated hundreds of patients with dental implants. As an advanced  Dental Practice in Newquay, we have a CT Scanner and can, therefore, assess the patient’s situation such as the volume of bone and the state of the teeth and jaws very thoroughly. Recently, our practice has become truly digital which means we can scan a patients mouth/teeth and send the scan to our own lab to produce a print of the patient’s teeth using a digital printer.  Using this technology we can produce tailor-made surgical guides to place implants very accurate. Another application is the simulation of cosmetic improvements with veneers or crowns and production of so-called “mock-up’s”.  These can be used to show the patient the treatment result with a temporary material direct in the patient’s mouth. Photos will be taken and given to the patient. Afterwards, the temporary mock-up is removed.  Dr Nelz has undergone theoretical and practical Sedation training but since 2007 only one patient needed treatment under sedation. With a very special approach to painless local anaesthesia, even the most nervous patients become relaxed after having had their first treatment experience. Conclusion: if you are nervous about dental treatment and looking for Pain-free dentistry or specifically for a Dentist in Newquay, give us a call on 01637852888. 

Cost of treatments:

We offer an Atlantic Dental Plan scheme where members receive 1-2 exams and 1-4 dental hygienist appointments as part of their contract. Plan members also receive a discount of 10% on dental treatments.  For ‘pay as you go’ fees, click here.

Treatment cost: we are one of the most affordable practices for dental implant treatments while also offering very quality treatments (high value for money)! As we have a dental laboratory and a digital scanner we can fabricate surgical stents, temporary dentures in-house while we send digital impressions to dental laboratories.

All of this is very high-tech and does keep the cost down. Our average charge for dental implants from start to finish, without bone grafting and the final crown, is ~ £1800. Other practices charge up to £3500 for the same treatment. Our products and materials such as implants, bone graft materials, crowns and bridges are of high quality.  

Please rest assured that it’s not about selling expensive treatment options to the patient. What matters is the need of the patient and to find out what is the best solution for the patient taking into account the medical situation, the time frame and, of course, the budget. In the UK there are very few patients who have insurance cover which pays for their treatment, hence the patients expect high value and lasting restorations for their money. Theferore we offer warranties for our work depending on circumstances.

Condition after some initial repair on front teeth.

This patient could not have dental implants due to health reasons. The broken roots had to be removed and the patient had difficulties chewing not to mention the aesthetic problem.

Denture attached to bridge via Precision attachments

We restored the mouth with a combination of a fixed bridge and a removable denture attached to the bridge via ‘precision attachments’. This is an advanced restorative solution.

The result of the treatment shows the bridge and the removable denture. There are no clasps visible and yet the denture is very secure and feels like a fixed bridge. This is an option for patients who are looking for an alternative to dental implant restorations and cannot get on with a simple acrylic or Valplast denture.  A simple acrylic denture would not be functional in such a case as the retention would be insufficient and such a denture would be very loose.

Temporary Closure
To our Patients and Friends of  Atlantic Dental,

 Our team have been working tirelessly to keep Atlantic Dental a clean and safe environment for you.

 As a Dental Practice, we work in an environment where the prevention of the spread of a whole range of infections is woven into everything we do.  In addition to our usual scrupulous cross infection control measures, we have been paying particularly close attention to all government guidance and updates related more specifically to Coronavirus.

 Given the unprecedented situation in the UK regarding the rapidly spreading COVID-19 virus, we feel we must use our own clinical judgement and act in the best interests of our patients and staff.

 We feel it is essential that we do our part to reduce the spread of this virus, and so, it is with very heavy hearts, that we have taken to decision to temporarily close the practice.  All being well, we will re-open on Monday 13th April.  We will, of course, keep you updated with the latest information on our website

 Looking after the health of our patients is our absolute priority and so we will be operating an Emergency Telephone Consultation service for our patients who have urgent pain or swelling during this period of closure.  If you urgently need assistance, please us on 01637852888  and follow the instructions on the recorded message.

 As a team, we are doing everything we possibly can to remain fit, well and able to work so that we can continue our usual high standard of dental care for you when we return.


Thank you for your support, and stay safe,
The Team at Atlantic Dental
