Missing front tooth

A missing tooth is never favourable, but when it’s missing in the front portion of your visible smile, it undoubtedly knocks your confidence.

  • Knocked out tooth?
  • Lost a tooth from decay or disease?
  • Forced into an extraction?

Our dentists recommend certain solutions over others, not from a budget point of view, but rather for long-term comfort, functionality and aesthetics. 

01. Single implant

The most life-like and natural tooth replacement. More.

02. Dental bridge

A popular solution for patients with adjacent teeth. More.

03. Partial denture

Cheapest, but most uncomfortable solution for tooth loss. More.

04. Temporaries

Temporary solution to hide gaps in the short-term. More.

Restores teeth for a short time and acts as a filler between treatments.

Not a recommendable long-term solution and not a true replacement of a missing tooth.

4 years a customer and always professional yet friendly service. Corrected my major issues (fillings/caps) and while they’re keen to ensure ongoing ‘perfect teeth’ they don’t hard sell peripheral / optional treatments. Highly recommended

I was looking for somewhere with a personal touch, that I could trust and that’s what I got at Mint. They always remember my name and are so polite. After a year of zoom meetings I really wanted my teeth to be straight and the results completely surpassed my expectations. I now feel comfortable taking photos! The team explained everything clearly (I felt I could ask anything multiple times) appointments were always organised and it was a really easy, worthwhile process. My teeth look like my teeth but are now at their best.

The clinic is a really lovely place to visit – it is extremely clean and all of the staff are very friendly. They were kind and reassuring all the way through my Invisalign treatment – as well as having amazing technology at their disposal. Dr Imran is so accommodating and kept everything simple, addressing any concerns straight away. All in all I would definitely recommend Mint Dental Clinic, a lovely experience all round.

Best dentist I’ve ever had! Have completed a year of Invisalign with Dr Patel and he has been so reassuring and kind throughout. From the reception staff to hygenists they really go above and beyond to make you feel looked after and special. I couldn’t recommend them enough!

Over the past six years Dr Raj and Preanka and all of the team at Mint have been exceptional. Every member of the team is exemplary at their expertise and I’ve never felt in better hands at the dentist. Affordable and top of the range, I would recommend them to anyone.

Excellent dental practice. A very smartly turned-out surgery. Staff are polite and very professional. I am impressed with the modern teeth scanning equipment. Dr Raj Patel will put you at ease. He is highly professional dentist. I have no problem in recommending Dr Patel and the rest of the Mint team.

Only FOUR quick questions

Not sure which one is right for you?

Chances are you’ve identified your solution based on your budget – and that’s understandable. 

But as experienced missing teeth dentists, we’ve transitioned many denture wearers to implants and have seen how much more costly of an experience this can become. Implants initially might seem expensive, but in the long-term, they’re the most cost-effective.

All that said, you won’t know which front missing tooth solution is best or most suited to your oral condition until you’ve consulted with a prosthodontist, like us.
