In addition to a lisp or possible hindrance to a patient’s
social or career prospects, missing teeth can cause more serious implications,
examples of which are oral diseases and infections. Unfortunately when teeth
are lost, an area of the gum is exposed, this space within the mouth can then

When receiving any dental work it is important to weigh
out the pros and cons of your chosen treatment. Dental implants are considered
as a durable form of tooth replacement within the mouth, they not only last
many years whilst restoring the function of a patient’s smile, but they also
look like a very natural addition to a patient’s remaining teeth.
Regaining confidence in your smile
In the modern field of implant dentistry new technologies
have developed which ensure patients receive a natural looking form of tooth
replacement. Porcelain crowns are constructed perfectly to replicate the exact
shade, and shape of the original surrounding teeth within the patient’s mouth.
Even better, they feel almost exactly the same as original teeth too.
