Smiling with confidence

Not happy with your current smile? The team at Portman Dental Care know how this can impact how you feel, and may just have a solution.

It might be that you don’t like the way they look, they’re stopping you from eating the foods you love, or they’re even affecting the way you talk. However they may be affecting you, missing or failing teeth can really affect your confidence, preventing you from sharing your smile and enjoying the simple pleasures in life. However, Portman Dental Care offer a solution that could bring back your smile.

Whether you want to replace a single tooth or a complete smile, dental implants offer a long-term solution for missing or failing teeth. They’ll improve your ability to speak and chew, and look and feel just like your natural teeth.

But what exactly is a dental implant? It’s a titanium attachment that’s placed where the teeth used to be, replacing your missing tooth root. After it’s fitted, the bone surrounding your implant will gradually integrate with it, holding the implant firmly in place. A false tooth (a crown) which matches the colour and shape of your existing teeth is then fitted to the top of the implant, leaving you with a fixed solution and a natural looking smile.

“Words can’t describe the way our patients look and feel after they have had dental implant treatment with us,” says CEO, Sam Waley-Cohen. “One thing we’re certain of is that everyone we have cared for ends up with a brand-new smile that they’re proud of. Worrying about what other people think, how you look, what you can and cannot eat, and how you sound – becomes a thing of the past.”

One happy client shares her experience: “I can only applaud the superb staff for restoring my confidence (it’s very depressing losing a front tooth) and hope that other patients having doubts about the procedures will take the first step and be assured that they can have complete faith in the team’s advice and skills. Many thanks for putting a smile back on my face.”
