Dental Implants

Dental implants are the single, strongest, most predictable restoration for missing teeth.  Featuring up to a 98% 5 year survival rate in the lower arch, it is stronger and more practical than a porcelain or composite bridge.  It is more expensive, but may have an indefinite life expectancy if you effectively care for it.

Patient testimonials

" I was fortunate to be referred to Clarence by my regular dentist due to the reputation she had as a cosmetic dentist. The results were so outstanding I can honestly say they were a life changing catalyst. I smile more often and more confidently and am so proud to do so. I am sure this reflects the change in the way I feel within.

I had a very involved procedure which was completed over several months performed in conjunction with a referral to her colleague specialising in endodontics, Dr. David Parkins. From the very first contact I made her practice made an impression; the website was well thought out, easy to navigate, had lots of before and afters - which I love - all of the links worked, as well as being super modern with great design.
Angela and Varsha (more superstars) made my appointment with all of my time challenges in mind with great efficiency and from the first phone call I was already filled with great confidence before even setting foot in the practice. 

Clarence's kind and gentle manner set me at ease straight away. Yet don't be fooled when it comes to perfectionism and achieving the absolute best result possible; she pursues this fiercely! Previously I was led to believe that my procedure was going to be extremely complicated, not necessarily successful or even possible and the bleaching result I had already been given previously the best that could be achieved. Clarence assessed every aspect of my requirements even suggesting improving details I'd been told would not ever be fixable and gave me every confidence that I would come away with an amazing result. The results were in fact so much better than I had hoped for I was overwhelmed and so very grateful to her and her fabulous team.

Every experience at Clarence's practice from bookings, reception to examination and treatment is personalised and met with an outstanding level of professionalism as well as kindness and care".
