Are you concerned about a missing tooth or teeth? We understand how much you can be affected by losing your natural teeth on both a personal and practical level.
At Corner House Dental we do all we can to provide the best care for our patients and we believe we have the ultimate answer for missing teeth. Dental implants are a permanent solution for lost teeth, yet they look and feel completely natural. Not only will dental implants improve your appearance and give you a confidence boost, but they also have the same functionality as your natural teeth and are maintained in exactly the same way, making them an easy and worry-free option for you.
We create an implant from titanium metal which is inserted into your jawbone where it fuses with your existing bone, becoming like a new tooth root and creating a strong and permanent support for your replacement tooth or teeth. At Corner House we liaise with skilled technicians in a dental laboratory who will create perfect replacement teeth to match your natural set, returning your smile to its most beautiful. With dental implants, you can eat what you like without worry, and they are a much more comfortable option than dentures.
Benefits of dental implants in Norwich
They’re the closest solution to a real tooth. They look and feel like your natural teeth and fuse with the bone which means they eventually become permanent.
Missing teeth can cause problems with speech. Dental implants can restore your speech as well as your ability to chew food properly, thus improving your overall health.
Implants are comfortable, whilst other solutions such as dentures can cause some pain and discomfort.
Many find they smile more after having their missing teeth replaced – implants restore self-esteem and give the confidence to smile again.
Implants do not require you to have other teeth reduced as with bridges where neighbouring teeth have to be altered in order to support the new tooth/teeth.
Implants are a fixed solution, so there is no need to remove your teeth overnight or for other reasons such as to clean them.
Dental implants are said to have a success rate of over 95%, making them a highly reliable solution to replacing missing teeth. They can be used to replace a single missing tooth, or indeed several or all missing teeth.
What does the procedure involve?
Firstly, you will need to attend a consultation, where you can discuss your treatment with one of our specialists here at Cornerhouse. If you have any anxieties or questions, we will be more than happy to address these moving forwards.
The titanium tooth root implant is placed into your bone socket (where your missing tooth is). Your jawbone will heal and the implant will fuse and grow around the titanium implant, a process that can take anywhere from 6 – 12 weeks.
Following this, an abutment (a connecting post) will be attached in order to support your new tooth. Impressions of your natural teeth will be made so that you have an exact bespoke model correct to your bite – your new tooth (a crown) is made from this and placed over your new tooth root (the implant).
Here at Cornerhouse, your dentist will help you select a perfect match for the colour of your crown.

Many of our patients have had enough of breakable acrylic dentures, having to remove their teeth at night and speaking with their hands in front of their mouths; they want a real solution to loose dentures or simply want implants to replace their missing teeth. Other patients have been affected by gum-infected teeth and wanted the benefit that implant restorations could bring.
Once patients are able to eat what they want, smile, and kiss with confidence without embarrassing teeth to be concerned about, their lives are enriched and they have a new lease on life.
There really is no need to put up with false or missing teeth, with our 0% finance options (T&C apply), the beautiful smile you have always dreamed of is within your grasp.
