Dental Implant Crowns & Bridges
Whether replacing single teeth or a full row or arch, dental implants are the ultimate functional and aesthetic solution to missing teeth.
Combining the best available materials along with many years’ experience at the forefront of treatment, Dr Mark Hughes works with highly skilled Implantologists to plan your treatment. He then restores the implants with the finest quality ceramic, and his meticulous eye for detail to ensure you leave with teeth to be proud of.
They work by replacing the tooth’s root with a biocompatible titanium implant which fuses with the jawbone, creating a permanent lifelong bond.
All-On-4 implants is the name given to a revolutionary solution which allows Mark and team to secure a full row of teeth using minimal implants.
Where traditional implants typically require around 8-10 implants, All-On-4 achieves the same results with just four – thanks to the careful and strategic placement of the implants in the jaw.
The minimally-invasive technique gives equivalent performance to conventional dentures while significantly reducing recovery time. The procedure is often completed in a single day, leading to them being named Teeth in a Day or Same Day Teeth by the dental profession.
Implant-retained dentures allow wearers to enjoy all of the functional and cosmetic benefits of dentures with none of the disadvantages.
The upgrade means securely fitted dentures which don’t rely on messy dental adhesives to keep them in place – and which won’t let you down by coming loose when least expected.
The advanced prosthodontic technique is a significant smile improvement which lets you get on with life in confidence again.
When a row of several teeth are missing or damaged, an implanted bridge restores integrity and aesthetics.
Where conventional bridges rely on neighbouring teeth as an anchor point, implanted bridges affix with a biocompatible titanium insert placed in the jaw.
The ultra-lifelike crowns produced which sit on top of the implant are produced in hard-wearing porcelain and digitally designed to resemble natural teeth.
Implanted bridges are especially useful when grinding or bruxism is a problem. They help to distribute some of the grinding pressure more evenly.
