We provide general and specialist treatments.
Are you looking for a Dentist in Cornwall?
We are a modern practice with an in-house laboratory and modern digital technology.
We have invested heavily in our practice, offering gold standard treatments and modern technology. The Atlantic Dental Team is service orientated and friendly. Our charges or 20%- 30% lower than those of comparable practices whilst offering superior services and warranties for our work.
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 oral rehabilitation often under General Anaesthesia has been his main field of expertise. 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). We also offer Dental Implants and Teeth Straightening (Orthodontics). Our aesthetic branch Atlantic Beauty offers facial rejuvenation (Botox, Dermal Fillers).
We can offer treatments for nearly every budget and every case. 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.
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.
Dental Implant treatments are one of our main areas of work and since opening the practice in 2007 Dr Nelz has restored hundreds of patients with dental implants. 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 dental 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.
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.
Dental Implant cost: we are one of the most affordable practices for dental implant treatments while also offering very high volume 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 a dental laboratory.
All of this is very high-tech and does keep the cost down. Our average charge for dental implants from start to finish, including 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 had insurance cover which pays for their treatment, hence the patients expects high value and lasting restorations for their money. Theferore we offer warranties for our work depending on circumstances.
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.
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 implants 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 inefficient and such a denture would be very loose.
I needed a solution and envisaged Implants to be the best course of action.
Accordingly, I evaluated and visited several potential dental practices and advertised “implant centres”.
Most failed to impress me either regarding their facilities or attitude—-
THEN I visited Atlantic and had a consultation with Dr. Peer Nelz.

Complete Restoration of a patients mouth WITHOUT implants. We fitted a bridge over the front teeth and constructed a denture with precision attachments.
