Dental implants in Southampton

One of our most experienced dentists, Dr Peter Sanders, has been fitting dental implants for over 25 years. Dental implants are a long-term, fixed solution to help you restore your missing or failing teeth. Peter can take you through the process step-by-step to ease any concerns you may have during your initial consultation.

Smile in a day treatment

As well as single and multiple implants, we can also offer smile in a day implants. Smile in a day treatment is a long-lasting solution for replacing multiple loose, missing or failing teeth with a full set of dental implants in just one day. We also accept referrals for smile in a day treatment.

Whitening can be an important part of a smile makeover. We always check the suitability of your teeth, as it may not be recommended for some patients with high sensitivity. It’s important to know that we may not be able to treat all of your teeth: whitening can’t alter the colour of fillings, crowns, veneers, for example. Your dentist can explain and suggest any options open to you.

We do understand that some people really struggle with dental treatment. But we have lots of ways to help put you at ease. Please just tell us how you feel and what worries you, and then we can work together to decide on the right approach.

Generally we recommend twice yearly check-ups every six months. However, this varies on a case by case basis. Your Bupa Dental Care dentist will talk to you about when and how often we need to see you.

No, Bupa Dental Care practices are open to everyone. If you do have Bupa dental insurance, at selected practices we can guide you through your claim.

First, please check that our practice offers the services you’re looking for, then simply use the referral form on our contact page. Do feel free to give us a call and tell us what you’re looking for.
