Dental Implants

What is a Dental Implant?

There are two parts to every tooth: the crown and the root. The crown is the visible part and the root is the unseen part which anchors the tooth in your jawbone, providing stable support for your crown. There are many ways to replace tooth crown, but only dental implants can replace the entire tooth including both crown and root.

Why Dental Implants?

Natural looking, No one will know you have dental implants unless you tell them. We have some of the best dental implants Central London dentists have to offer & offer implants that look and feel like your tooth.
The visible part of your dental implant is a life-like, tooth coloured crown that is crafted to look, feel and function just like your natural teeth – matching them in size, colour, contour and shape.

Dental Implants are reassuringly reliable, safe and long lastingModern dental implant techniques and technology have been extensively researched and used for over 30 years, so you know that they are built to last and can withstand hard foods just as a normal tooth can.

Dental implants are made of pure titanium, a metal which the body accepts; they are therefore proven to be safe, biologically compatible and can become part of you for a very long time. Dental implants are the perfect way to replace missing teeth.

Investing in your future appearance with Dental ImplantsDental implants don’t just offer a cost-effective, safe and natural looking way to achieving a confident new smile; they can also help you keep your youthful looks for longer.

Filling gaps in your smile means that over time, the rest of your teeth stay where they should be. Dental implants preserve facial contours that would otherwise begin to look hollow with jawbone shrinkage. Such shrinkage occurs when teeth are missing.
