Restorative dentistry includes dental implants which are the most popular choice to replace missing or damaged teeth. For many patients who have missing teeth, dental implants are the best option.
A dental implant is made up of a titanium post which is placed into the jaw bone, this fuses with the jaw bone and acts as a root for a prosthetic crown which is the replacement tooth. An implant acts as a fully functioning tooth, both in terms of appearance and functionality. The appearance will be natural and just like your natural tooth, and the function will allow you to bite and chew as normal too.
Implants can be used to replace single or multiple missing teeth. Prices start from £1250 per tooth. The confidence implants provide is priceless, and you will be able to smile, talk and eat as you wish.
Treatment stars with a consultation with our expert dental team. They will assess your individual needs and prepare a full treatment plan with custom pricing. If you decide to proceed, X-rays will be taken along with measurements in order to prepare your implant and crown by our dental laboratory.
Treatment is a surgical procedure carried out under local anaesthetic, recovery times are fast and patients generally need to take it easy for 1 – 5 days and can return to work straight away.
Implants are designed to last a lifetime and will look just like your natural teeth, in terms of overall appearance, as well as size, shape and shade. All requirements will be expertly matched by our dental laboratory team.
The treatment will also provide stability to your other teeth, by preventing other teeth from moving which would cause further issues.
Crowns can be used in a variety of treatments. For example if a tooth has a large filling or has crack or factor a crown can be fitted. This will provide the structural and functional integrity of the tooth.
Patients who have had root canal therapy will also require a crown, and crowns can also be used to enhance the aesthetics of your smile. It will normally take 2 appointments to prepare and fit a crown, which will be made by our dental laboratory. A temporary crown will be fitted while your custom made crown is made. A visit to see our dental lab technician may be advised, so that your crown can be matched precisely in terms of shade.
Crowns are very versatile and are the best way to restore strength to a weakened tooth. To talk to us about other restorative dentistry options please contact us to book a consultation.
