Dental Implants
Thorpe Dental Group have, been providing
Dental Implants at their Woodthorpe site for
a number of years. Implant dentists, Kris
Leeson and Barbie Devall are dedicated to
providing the highest quality of service,
using the latest technology including an
onsite CT scanner to assist in case planning
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a permanent way of
replacing missing teeth. Implants are small
titanium screws which are placed in the jaw
bone. They can then be used to attach
different restorations, such as crowns,
bridges or dentures. Implants can look, feel
and work just like natural teeth.
Can everyone have dental implants?
Anyone who has missing teeth can be
considered for dental implants. A
consultation with your implant dentist will be
required to assess your suitability for implant
How long does the treatment take?
The complexity of the treatment required
will determine the treatment time, however
simple cases can often be completed within
3-6 months.
How much do dental implants cost?
Each implant case is individual and as such
costs vary. Implants have often been proven
to be more cost effective in the long term
than other methods of tooth replacement
which often require costly adjustments or
replacement. Our initial consultation fee is
from £105 (including x-rays)
Crowns and veneers while you wait
We are pleased to announce that on the
6th December 2013 Dr Kris Leeson and
his team at Thorpe Dental Group were
officially crowned Best Team and Best
Practice North East at the prestigious
Dentistry Awards in Leicester.
What is CEREC?
CEREC is a dental restoration that allows
dental practitioners to produce ceramic
dental restorations using 3D photography.
CEREC allows the dental practitioner to
produce a new crown, veneer, onlay or inlay
within an hour- a procedure that would
normally take up to two weeks!
What Is Six Month Smiles Short
Term Orthodontic Treatment?
Six Month Smiles® short term
orthodontic treatment is a modern twist
on tried-and-true orthodontics.
Six Month Smiles has taken the best
aspects of braces and modified the
treatment and the materials to give
adults a cosmetic solution that fits
your lifestyle.
Average treatment times of only
six months
Six Month Smiles clear brackets
and tooth coloured wires are
barely visible
Use of braces has shown to
provide the most conservative and
predictable final result
Low forces and short overall
orthodontic treatment times
Six Month Smiles is typically less
expensive than traditional braces,
aligner therapy, or veneers.
How does it work?
Instead of the traditional method of using
dental putty to create an impression, CEREC
creates a 3D model of the tooth using a
highly sensitive camera. Once this has been
created, it is sent to an onsite milling
machine which fabricates the tooth from a
ceramic block- a process which takes
anywhere form 6-30 minutes.
Ceramic blocks come in a wide range of
shades and will be selected to match the
colour of the surrounding teeth
What are the benefits of CEREC?
Protects and preserves your own
tooth's structural integrity
Ceramics are bio-compatible
Only one appointment
Perfect looks, quality and comfort
Long lasting and durable
