Replace missing teeth with dental implants at Smile Stories

You’ve heard of them, but what exactly are dental implants?

Let’s keep it simple. Dental implants are “fake teeth”. It’s not quite what nature gave you, but it’s as good as, and lightyears ahead of the competition when it comes to replacing missing teeth. They look and feel like real teeth, are fixed like real teeth, and are easily the most long-lasting in a range of tooth replacement treatments.

Dental implants come in two parts. The first is a titanium replacement for a tooth root that sits under your gum. On top, a hand-made crown seamlessly connects, made to blend in so even a dentist can’t tell it’s fake.

Smile Stories are here to help transform your smile with dental implants and leave you smiling and able to eat again in comfort. We don’t say this lightly: Dental implants will change your life. What are you waiting for?

How is an implant placed?

Let the magic begin! Precise planning is key. You’ll have an Ultimate 3D Smile Assessment, including a series of 3D scans and x-rays to assess your bone quality and quantity.

The dental implant is painlessly placed and sealed over for 3-6 months to allow for things to settle in and make themselves at home.

A temporary tooth replacement (which can even be supported by the dental implant immediately) means you don’t have to feel self-conscious in the meantime. Finally, our master-ceramists will create a bespoke tooth coloured crown to integrate into your smile seamlessly.

Lifetime Smile Confidence starts with a Complimentary Video Consultation with our Implant Dentists.

Why take our free video consultation?

We will walk you through the process of getting that dream smile without having to organise a dental appointment or pay a penny. It couldn’t be simpler!

We’ll get to know your goals a little better, provide you with an easy-to-read action plan, and an estimate of the costs and a timescale.

Single Tooth Implants

Now this isn’t easy

Matching a front tooth perfectly to its neighbour takes some skill. The colour, the shape, the length, the texture, the shine, the gum line and the spacing between have to be spot on.

At Smile Stories, our aesthetic and implant dentists pride themselves on this level of attention to detail. We’ll make sure the results equip you functionally and WOW you aesthetically using scanning equipment and HD photography.

Implant Dentures

Are rocking dentures stopping you from eating comfortably?

Dentures are not fixed in your mouth. They sit on your gums with the hope that suction will keep them down and can rock, drop, move and slide quite easily when you chew.

If you can relate to these denture woes, implant-retained dentures are your solution. Your denture will be clipped onto them, meaning they won’t annoyingly move around — no more denture dance moves. Implant-retained dentures can be for some or all of your teeth and are a sure-fire way to chew a good steak again or chomp on a veggie burger.

Implant Retained Bridges

Missing multiple teeth? We have a simple fix that is more affordable than you think.

Imagine a bridge over a river, concrete and steel that you can drive over. It spans the river, but it is only connected to the land at either end.

An implant bridge in your mouth works exactly the same way. So, if you’re missing several teeth in a row, we can place an implant at both ends of the gap and a bridge between them. Whatever the gap, we can bridge it!

Zak grew up in his parents’ record shop (trendy or what) and spent his life getting to know people and their stories. So don’t expect much silence when you visit!

He was also that kid who loved to take things apart to see how they work so that curiosity for craftsmanship and problem-solving is the heartbeat behind Zak’s love for designing head-turning smiles.

His clients usually comment on the way he puts his heart and soul into everything and the fact that there’s always plenty of laughter on the way.

Your Commonly Asked Questions

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are essentially “fake teeth”, but not in the same way dentures are. While dentures are loose-fitting and bounce around on chewing, dental implants are “implanted” painlessly under your gum line, so they are a fixed and long term solution. They consist of a titanium replacement for a tooth root and a hand-made crown on top, replicating a real tooth.

Which implant system do we use at Smile Stories?

Our Implant Dentists are trained in an array of systems, including world-leading Swiss-manufactured Straumann implants.

It might sound cheesy, but we don’t ever believe in cutting corners with cheaper manufactured brands, because as the saying goes, “it’s unwise to pay too much, but it’s worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money, but if you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything.” At Smile Stories, we do it once and do it properly with every solution we recommend.

Who may not be suitable for dental implants?

Age isn’t a problem, but the amount and quality of bone will play a factor. Other things that may increase the likelihood of implants not succeeding are excessive smoking and advanced gum disease, as you could be at risk of the gum foundations around the implant(s) from breaking down.  Auto-immune disease and other severe illnesses can also affect the healing rate and how the implant knits with the bone around it. Suitability is determined on a case-by-case basis, and our implant dentists will be able to guide you.

Who needs dental implants?

If you’ve lost a single tooth or have no teeth in your mouth, you’re a perfect candidate. Loose dentures, spaces and wobbly teeth may indicate you could also benefit from dental implants.

How much are dental implants?

Dental implant pricing depends entirely on the level of treatment required. Our dental implant prices start from as little as £2,495.00 for a single tooth dental implant. You can pay using our flexible 0% interest-free finance options for up to 24 months, starting at as little as £3.00 per day.

How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants last for decades but can last longer when looked after properly. The crown, bridge or denture attached to the implant (fastened under the gumline) can wear, chip or need replacing, like you would expect with any other dentistry or anything custom-made. Sadly, nothing lasts forever in life, but we put our heart and soul into giving you Lifetime Smile Confidence.

Are dental implants painful?

Nope, it’s not 1995! When you visit us for your dental implant procedure, we will give you a local anaesthetic to gently numb the area (we even use a numbing jelly beforehand), so you won’t feel any discomfort during the procedure. Once the anaesthetic wears off, you can expect some mild discomfort, which may last a few days or a week. You can manage this with painkillers like you would take for a headache. Most of our clients tell us that removing the tooth with their previous dentist was much worse.

Can you get dental implants on the NHS?

The NHS will only offer dental implant treatment in special circumstances, such as patients who can’t wear dentures or whose face and teeth have been damaged in an accident. Otherwise, dental implants are an independently-funded treatment for people looking for a more long-lasting and satisfying solution to losing their tooth/ teeth.

 

Are dental implants safe?

Yes, dental implants are perfectly safe and are a tried and tested technique in cosmetic dentistry. At Smile Stories, we use world-leading Swiss-manufactured implants, which have proven results over decades.

Can you have dental implants with gum disease?

Yes, you can still have dental implants if you have gum disease, but you should treat the gum disease first. Healthy gum foundations around implants matter just as much as teeth! This means you can avoid looseness or the eventual loss of the implant.

Can you have dental implants with receding gums?

Yes, in most cases, you can still have dental implants if you have receding gums. However, our dentists will be able to give you more information based on your unique situation. Everyone’s gums are different, so placing implant(s) in the ideal position to make things look natural is important.

Can having dental implants cause headaches?

The dental implants themselves shouldn’t cause you any headaches. Headaches would only really occur if there has been nerve damage or infection following the surgery.

Can smokers get dental implants?

Yes, smokers can get dental implants. However, for the best results and maximum chance of a result that lasts a lifetime, we can help guide you to reduce or quit altogether. This matters around the time when the implant is placed, especially. It allows the mouth to heal better, faster and with more minor discomfort.
