Not all dentistry is equal – my driving philosophy which motivates me to design and create dream smiles using state-of-the-art technology whilst incorporating minimally invasive techniques.
In 1981, I completed my BDS from the University of Witwatersrand, thereafter, spending 23 happy years practicing privately in London.
Since returning to Cape Town, as a World Master and Instructor, I have pioneered Digital Smile Design’s development in South Africa. This concept uses minimally invasive techniques to develop smiles that fit individual patients’ aesthetic and functional needs.
I am proactively involved in the developments of the dental industry as I participate in numerous international study groups as well as establishing and participating in a variety of local and international organizations and affiliations.
As I believe that world-class dentistry should be transferred over generations, I lecture and teach postgraduate courses for Aesthetic and Restorative Dentistry and Removable Adult Orthodontics at the Implant & Aesthetic Academy (IAA) in South Africa and an international group of Intelligent Alignment Systems (IAS) respectively.
This non invasive treatment is a quicker, more affordable route to a natural, beautiful smile.
This treatment consists of bonding composite onto the natural, healthy tooth structure.
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain/composite that is placed over the front surface of the tooth and does not cover the whole tooth.
The veneers are customised to perfectly match the colour and shape of the patients natural tooth shape.
A crown is a type of restoration that covers the entire surface of a damaged, decayed, or weak tooth.
It is designed to restore the tooth’s strength, structure, functionality and appearance.
Aligners are clear trays made of a material that is designed to align your teeth gently but effectively,
Each tray allows us to move the teeth until we ultimately get to the ideal position.
A holistic approach to restoring the function, health and aesthetics of a patients mouth.
A full mouth rehab can consists of a number of different phases of treatments and procedures in order for us to reach the optimal result for our patient.

“Could not recommend more! Such an incredible practice with a team who really do always go above and beyond.
As someone who used to dread going to the dentist, Dr. Mark Bowes has completely changed my perception. He has such an amazing way of making you feel comfortable and keeping you informed. At Enamel you’re definitely in the best hands possible.”
“Dr Mark Bowes is one of the most knowledgeable and advanced dental practitioners in South Africa, in my opinion. His use of digital dentistry and slow dentistry principals result not only the most beautifully natural restorative and aesthetic results, but highly individualized smiles which can be virtually ‘test driven’, each step of the way. Truly world class!”
