Dental Implants and Bridges

Your smile is a highly personal part of your identity. Choosing a dentist who embraces your goals and ideas is essential. Our dentists, Dr Ricardo Paez, Dr Maria Paez, Dr Neville Bo and Dr Jonathan Michael, listen intently to your preferences for replacing your missing teeth. Rather than advocating for a specific procedure, we advocate for our patients’ joy and satisfaction with their dental care.

Innovative Digital Smile Design

We have taken the theory out of restorative dentistry. Using Digital Smile Design, our dentists create a ‘preview’ of what patients can expect after their procedure. These digital images help patients decide which procedures they want using realistic, representations of their own smiles created digitally just for them.

Do You Wish You Could Have Your Natural Tooth Back?

If you find yourself wishing for your natural tooth, dental implants provide the most natural and long-lasting option. Dental implants replace the whole tooth and will function and look very much the same as your other teeth. Natural teeth do not grow in a single day, and neither do dental implants, though the results are quite similar.

Because they are rooted in your jawbone, dental implants stay in place when you laugh, chew and smile. Dental implants can replace a single missing tooth or a full arch of teeth, or they can provide an anchor for dentistry, such as dental bridges or full dentures.

Our dentists meticulously plan dental implant procedures for the best long-term results using digital x-ray technology, bone and oral health evaluation and cosmetic planning to match your existing teeth.

Outstanding Results Take Time

Because dental implants need time to integrate fully with your jawbone, three to four months of healing is typically required. While waiting requires patience, our patients are pleased with their results.  
With the proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.

  • Bone evaluation and grafting, if necessary
  • Surgical placement, which is typically well tolerated
  • Healing and integration
  • Restoration with a dental implant crown

Most healthy patients are excellent candidates for this leading-edge teeth replacement therapy. To find out more, contact our Swansea or New Lambton locations to book a consultation.

Non-Surgical Options to Replace Teeth

For patients who wish to avoid surgical procedures or who have limiting medical conditions, dental bridges fill the gap in the smile in just a couple of appointments.

Dental bridges rely on specialised dental crowns on two healthy adjacent teeth to hold an artificial tooth in the space. Our dentists customise dental bridges to match the surrounding teeth in colour and appearance for a smile our patients feel proud to show off while sharing laughter and meals with family and friends.

We invite you to visit our dentures and partial dentures page to learn more about how to get your smile back in the wake of tooth loss.
