Implant-Supported Crowns for Multiple Missing Teeth
Implant-Supported Crowns for Multiple Missing Teeth
Careful planning and understanding of all biologic-aesthetic parameters are required to biomimetics: biologic-aesthetic integration whenever possible. Naturally we cannot control biology, but critical implant positioning and aesthetic planning helps the aesthetic integration.
The following patient candidates generally pose less risk for optimal outcome of the implant therapy:
- Non bruxer (do not grind or clench their teeth at night).
- Lost Teeth from Caries.
- Ideal ridge form shape angle and bone dimensions H+V.
- Optimal Periodontal (gum) health.
- Attends for regular maintenance visits.
- Inter implant papilla is usually 3mm from the bony crest.
- Non smoker and healthy.
Dental implants require careful assessment and planning. Therefore, please do not be surprised when I take time for my diagnosis, assessment and planning. This will involve X-rays (CBCT-Cone Beam Cat Scan) study models, functional, phonetic and aesthetic assessment. Good diagnosis and treatment planning takes time and expertise.
I am a specialist Prosthodontist. Prosthodontics requires the training and qualification to deal with complex dental health problems. I have attended internationally recognised and formally structured university programs to give me the extra skills and knowledge required to plan and manage complex dental problems. The qualification takes several years of training and practice. Over 7 years of post graduate University training, multiple examinations etc. For instance, rather than simply providing cosmetic solutions, which after all, only focus on “how things look”, I am trained to correctly diagnose and treat any underlying problems beforehand. This concept is carried over into all aspects of reconstructing or improving smiles and appearances, including fixed or removable teeth, giving the you, the patient, a long-term result rather than a “quick fix” which might break down early or even damage the teeth. Implant surgery involves additional skills obtained for surgical planning and placement of dental implants as an overall diagnosis and treatment for our patients. To gain any formal post graduate qualification, one must have their relevant knowledge tested in any examination or pass any professional critical review process at world class universities.
What our Clients Say!
I've been a customer of Designer Smiles for over 20 years and I cannot say enough good things about them! From the moment you walk into the office, you are greeted with a warm and friendly atmosphere that immediately puts you at ease. The staff is knowledgeable, professional, and caring. They use the latest technology and take the time to explain everything. I highly recommend them!
Dr Sarkis is the maestro of cosmetic dentistry….for years I suffered with 2 slightly darker front teeth due to a childhood accident. I’ve had composite veneers before but nothing compared to the composite veneers Dr Sarkis did……now I feel so confident smiling again……Dr Sarkis I can’t thank you enough…
Quite literally the best dentist I’ve been to in a lifetime. Dr Natasha Koelmeyer specifically is just a wonderfully kind and gentle Doctor. Must also mention that the head specialist here is also second to none. Their knowledge (goodness they know their stuff) their approach, their kind and gentle manner - my daughter actually enjoys going to the dentist. They’ve got a really considered patient centric mentality. I wouldn’t go anywhere else, every single person there including the reception staff is a star. Thank you Designer Smiles!
My journey with Dr Sarkis began about 10 years ago. I did not realise that I had lacked self confidence and shone away from "my true smile". Dr Sarkis was honest, reassuring and professional throughout my process and not only was he able to achieve that perfect smile but achieve same without compromising the health of my teeth and gums.The ongoing care at Designer Smiles is 5 star whether it is a routine check, clean minor or major dentistry. Thank you Dr Sarkis and also your team.
I found Designer Smiles from one of their YouTube videos showcasing the Icon treatment to fix white spots on teeth. Dr. Sarkis Nalbandian's consultation provided me with a thorough plan and showed me how their practise could give me predicable results for my concerns. I knew I was in safe hands. I had Kristy Gupta perform both of my procedures and she was very professional and so kind. I am very happy with my results!
I cannot express how grateful I am for Sarkis and the team at Designer Smiles. Around 11 years ago my life changed when Sarkis first transformed my smile with composite veneers. This month, with my original teeth in tact I returned to have my composite veneers upgraded to porcelain. I was amazed that Sarkis and his team could do this without an injections, no pain and whilst still keeping my original teeth in tact. I absolutely love the result and I would highly recommend that anyone that is unhappy with their smile in any way, must visit designer smiles
Started my treatment with the team at Designer Smiles in 2019. Had other dental treatments including Maxillofacial, expanders, straightening and gum grafting but out of all the procedures and surgeries Dr. Sarkis was the key as he was applying the ‘finishing product’ which included composite veneers. I am gobsmacked by the incredible job done. He talks the talk and definitely walks the walk. And his support team there are simply incredible and make you feel part of a family not just another dental clinic to take your money. Can not recommend highly enough. Customer for life here!!
