Single Dental Implant Treatment would be recommended as a replacement where a single tooth is missing or if a tooth needs to be extracted. It is the most common long-term solution available, with extremely good results. It can be designed to cosmetically match the original tooth and neighbouring teeth.
Tooth loss can have a detrimental effect on the quality of one’s life leading to further dental problems and psychological problems such as low self-esteem and social impairment. Dental implants are a great modern solution to missing teeth.
The main advantage this particular type of dental implant is that no treatment is required of the neighbouring teeth. This means that the rest of your dentition is left intact and hence preserved. Also, the titanium implant is fixed in your mouth so once you have the treatment you can treat it like any other tooth in your mouth. This means you do not have to take it out like dentures.
The tooth implant is often made of titanium and is fitted into the bone to create a replica of your roots. The top part of your implant is then constructed from our latest hard wearing porcelain range to look and feel like a new tooth. These types of implants can also be used to support more than one missing tooth as in implant supported bridges.
A dental implant is often the easiest and simplest way of restoring the stability and aesthetics of the mouth. The best indication for this type of treatment is when we do not want to damage or include in our treatment plan the teeth either side of the missing tooth. The aim of this treatment is simply to balance your bite and replace the missing tooth in a way that is comfortable and suited to you.
A dental implant treatment is a simple surgical procedure and does not affect the teeth either side of the gap in any way. Indeed we can now construct the dental implant to cosmetically match the neighbouring teeth.
Traditional tooth implants can take a few months with a few dental visits for the jawbone to integrate with the titanium implant. But taking advantage of modern technology, we can now choose to treat you with a system that only takes one dental visit. See IMPLANTS IN A DAY.
The process starts with a FREE discovery consultation where we discuss your needs and requirements with a Computerised Photographic Assessment to help you understand the possibilities.
We are at this stage able to assist you with potential options available to you. Depending on your requirements we can customise and tailor-make individual treatments plans to suit your needs and budgets. You can opt for simple procedures to more complex involved treatments plans to produce your beautiful new smile. Our aim is answer your questions and provide you with the advantages and disadvantages.
During this assessment we will investigate that you have the correct width, height and density of bone. When there is insufficient bone present than we often perform additional procedures such as bone grafts or sinus grafts to add more bone volume. This may need a healing period of 3 months prior to placing the implant the regenerated bone. We may advise that a CT-scan is taken to obtain this information. The dentist will also assess whether there is a possibility of an immediate implant for your missing tooth.
We use a wide selection of the latest state-of-the-art implant technology, techniques and systems to create a great cosmetically appealing and functional end-result.

I cannot thank Dr Doshi and all his amazing staff enough for making me feel so comfortable and at ease.
They have given me something that I have always missed, the confidence to smile, I wish I had taken the step to enhance my life earlier.
The Perfect Smile is unlike any other dentist that I have attended. The friendly atmosphere and facilities are second to none.
Not once was I put under any pressure to go ahead with my treatment, but I'm glad I did. Worth every penny.
Look out anyone who's holding a camera.

I suppose being of a certain age one tends to think of a dentist as a NHS doctor, interested purely in your well-being. The Perfect Smile approach is basically not realty about patient well-being (at all) but making a profit, they are of course a private enterprise and only exist to make money.
Nothing wrong with that as long as you know what your letting yourself in for.
The ‘free’ consultation is nothing more than a sales pitch showing you lots of before and after pics and letters of recommendation (all at least 10 years old). Then it start to get expensive, the full consultation is £200 this includes a treatment plan. I did this, my appointment started 15 mins late (no explanation) and before I knew it I had a treatment plan that totalled £32,000. Yes that’s right £32,000.
Ok that was the full Monty (12 veneers etc.) but what was painfully clear is the desire at all time to upsell you to include everything possible chargeable, probably knowing that you would settle for less – but hey you got a nice cup of coffee while you waited.
Ok so Im being harsh, yes probably (as I doubt I will continue the treatment), I got no follow up call, but gritted my teeth (haha) and decided to call them to arrange an appointment for the hygienist (despite having only been 3 months ago they reckoned I needed two one hour sessions costing £250). The incredibly unhelpful receptionists said they had no appointments available for 3 weeks.
At this point I thought hang on let’s compare and contrast ‘perfect smile’ with my usual dentist. My private dentist charges £51 for a 45 min session with a hygienist (available next day), Perfect Smile charge £125 for one hour, assuming you can wait three weeks, a quick search on the internet reveals that Perfect Smile are way more expensive across the board pretty much for all treatments than your standard private (im not talking national health here) dentist.
Of course they are all those sales staff, frothy coffee and glossy adverts cost money, which we the patient have to pay for. So bottom before embarking on any treatment with PS do compare with other private dentists, if you like frothy coffee, high pressure sales, long wait for appointments etc. by all means go ahead, if you’re more financially astute and time sensitive do look elsewhere.
Contact us for any questions, requests and further information; or to arrange a FREE Initial Consultation.
The free no obligation Initial Consultation will be with our dentist and/or our Treatment Coordinators. The suitability of options discussed will ultimately be dependent upon your clinical assessment with a dentist at the practice.
