Highest Quality Dental Implants

Partnered with Straumann

If you’re missing a tooth or several teeth, we offer the highest quality Dental Implants. Dental implants are the most reliable and best long term solution of tooth replacement which has been growing rapidly in popularity. Not only do dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, but they also behave like one. Dental implants provide a permanent solution to tooth loss and can last up to a lifetime.

We have proudly partnered with Straumann, which is known for being the most reliable implant company in the world. With Swiss quality and innovation, Straumann is well-known for its high success rate and precision. These implants have a quick healing time and are the leaders in the area of dental implants.


A dental bridge is used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. It is a fixed restoration that consists of two dental crowns, normally fitted to the adjacent teeth next to the space made by the missing tooth. These crowns behave as the abutments or pillars of the bridge and the replacement tooth is in-between closing the gap.

This type of restoration is permanently cemented in place. They can be fabricated using a number of different materials such as gold, precious metal alloys, porcelain, or even metal-fused-to-porcelain for the added benefit of aesthetics with strength.


Crowns are caps that are placed over an existing tooth to reinforce the tooth. They are generally made from porcelain and porcelain-metal combinations, depending on your tooth structure. These porcelain dental crowns are colour-matched to the existing teeth and sculpted with precision to be seated over the tooth. They offer an excellent solution to recreating the form and function of a damaged tooth.


Removable dentures are commonly used tooth replacement tools that are affordable, easy to maintain, and comparatively quicker than other techniques. Dentures are removable and they help replicate the feel of natural teeth by recreating both the soft and hard oral components. A base plate acts as the soft tissue or gum, and the false tooth as the replacement tooth.
Dentures come in two main types: partial dentures for a few missing teeth, and complete dentures for fully edentulous individuals.
