“Replacing a single tooth with a dental implant is the gold standard treatment that every patient should have.”
Dental implants placed by one of our expert same day smiles™ dentists offer a number of benefits over bridges and dentures:
- The high quality materials we use means your replacement teeth look natural and, more to the point, feel natural, restoring complete oral functionality.
- They are a permanent solution for a missing tooth (unlike temporary bridges)
- They help to prevent bone loss and deterioration that is so common in patients who are missing teeth
- They don’t move around or interfere with oral functionality (such as eating or speaking)
- Your natural tooth structure is maintained, with no preparation to the nearby healthy teeth required
- At same day smiles™ we use the highest quality crowns, which are so natural looking they’re entirely indistinguishable from real teeth
What does single tooth replacement involve?
Our same day smiles™ surgeons include some of the most experienced in the UK, who can ensure that single tooth replacement is a quick procedure with minimal pain and discomfort.
- We will fit a titanium implant into your jaw bone, in the first instance.
- On the same day, we’ll fit you with temporary bridge or denture.
- This is then left to heal for between 2 and 6 months
- Once the healing is complete, we’ll create a natural looking porcelain crown in our laboratory and fit this permanent tooth in place of the previous temporary bridge.
How long will my single tooth replacement last?
Providing you look after the replacement tooth with good oral hygiene and regular dental check ups, there’s no reason whatsoever that your replacement tooth shouldn’t last a lifetime. This really is a permanent solution.
What makes a single tooth implant different?
There are a number of reasons that a dental implant is a better solution for a missing tooth than a bridge or denture. They include:
- An implant does not require that the tooth is attached to adjacent teeth (as is the case with a bridge). This means that there’s no need for a dentist to cut into or in any way damage your healthy surrounding teeth.
- A denture can move around and feel uncomfortable. An implant, on the other hand, is fitted in place and doesn’t move, eradicating the discomfort this causes.
- Another benefit of implants not moving is that there’s no risk, as there is with a denture, of any slipping particularly in a public place. Dentures slipping in a public place can cause real embarrassment.
How much does single tooth replacement cost?
The cost is usually between £1,950 and £2,500 for a single tooth, though this can vary in certain cases.
