Improve your smile
and your confidence

Missing teeth can really affect your appearance and self-confidence. You might want to have them replaced for aesthetic reasons, or you might find that your bite is affected

Although dental implants are the best option to replace missing teeth, they are not always appropriate. If you still want a fixed option then dental bridges may be the next best alternative.

    review rating 5  This dental practice has had a transformation since I visited a year ago for my regular check up and hygiene. The practice environment has had remodelling done making it look sleek and welcoming. Dr Anhaar continues to be the dentist there and as is always the case, her attention to detail is meticulous. I have had varied courses of treatments that started with a crown and a root canal to regular hygiene visits, and now my family and I continue to receive the care from her team. Hope you go from strength to strength and thank you for looking after our teeth.

  • review rating 5  I visited to have two teeth extractions a few weeks ago and was so frightened. I saw Dr Shivani and she was very calming and extremely professional at all times, I can honestly say one of the best practitioners in oral health I've been seen by. I would highly recommend this Dental surgery to anyone wanting highly professional, PAIN FREE - excellent experience. Thank you so much x Leigh Shilton.

    review rating 5  Earlier this year, in March 2018 I went to Kam at Gentle Dental Care, very very much in pain. I had to have two back teeth extracted. I opted for sedation when having the teeth taken out. I chose to have these replaced with Implants once the extraction had healed. During this time I also had a crown put on another tooth. As a very nervous patient, I can honestly say from start to finish the whole process has been a breeze. I attended 5 visits in total and was sedated twice, once for the extraction and once for the initial implant procedure. Kam definitely lives up to his name of the most gentle dentist in Croydon and I can tell how much he cares about his patients and doing the very best for them. The whole team at the surgery are lovely, put me at ease and reassured me every step of the way. It has been painless in every sense of the word. A couple of weeks ago, I went for the last process of having the implant crowns fitted and they look amazing and I could not be happier. 😃 Thank you so much Kam and all your team. Pauline Lee

  • review rating 4  I do not write reviews for the sake of it! But I've got to say that I received more info on dental care in that one half hour sitting, than at any other time in my life. The dentist was so passionate about her advice on preventative care; and a very holistic approach. The staff and general environment were very welcoming and comfortable throughout. The actual treatment was also of a high standard. Thanks guys!

What are bridges?

A dental bridge is a false tooth or teeth fixed into place permanently by securing them onto the adjacent teeth.

There are two main types of dental bridges:

Conventional bridge
This is where teeth on either side of the gap are crowned, and the teeth are all joined together.
The good thing about this option is that these types of bridges generally last for a long time and they are fixed in place. You will need to have some work carried out on the adjacent teeth, which will often need grinding down in order secure the bridge. If the teeth on either side are crowned already, then this option may be favourable.
Adhesive bridge
This is when the false tooth is stuck onto one or two of the adjacent teeth. The great thing about this option is that it is a simple procedure, which means that the teeth don’t need grinding down as they do with a conventional bridge. This type of bridge generally won’t last as long and it needs to be used in the right circumstances – it will work well on front teeth, but not as well on back teeth due to increased biting pressure.
