What is a dental implant?

Dental implants are considered the gold standard in replacing missing teeth.
Made from titanium they are strong and long-lasting. Designed to mimic natural teeth, they offer a level of restored chewing and enjoyment of food.

Dental implants can replace 1, multiple or all missing teeth.
A dental implant replaces the missing tooth’s root, it is placed below the gum in the jaw bone, the implant is then used to secure a new tooth or teeth on top to look like your natural teeth.

All on 4 implants, are a solution to replace a full set of teeth. i.e. old dentures, if all your teeth are missing or if you have a lot of missing/broken teeth. All on 4 allows us to replace all your teeth at the same time, giving you the perfect smile that is fixed in place.

At White Space Dental, we use 3D technology to precisely place your implant/s and hand-crafted porcelain to ensure your new tooth/teeth are a perfect match in terms of size, shape and colour.

After the implant has been placed, we then wait 4-6 months to allow your body to heal, allowing solid bone to grow around your implant. During this time, if the tooth is visible in your smile, we place a temporary tooth, or if it is at the back, we often use a small healing cap, that cannot been seen. Once healing is complete, we can place your new tooth on top.


We understand dentistry can often be an unexpected cost. White Space Dental offer a range of payment options to make things easier for you, accepting all health funds. HICAPS integration allows us to offer same day health insurance rebates.
