Dental Implants

Whether you’re missing one tooth, a few teeth, or even all your teeth, dental implants could be the solution to help you speak, eat, and smile naturally once again.

Our team cares about the effect missing teeth can have on your life. When you’re missing a tooth, you may lack self-confidence, be hesitant to smile, and have difficulty chewing or speaking.

At Given Smile, Dr Gus Freitas has extensive skills and experience in replacing missing teeth with dental implants, giving you a strong, stable, and long-lasting tooth restoration.  To ensure the precise position of your implant, modern software and digital intra-oral scanners are used. This is made to fit accurately around your teeth to guide the placement of the implant by the surgeon. This results in your replacement dental crown aligning properly with your natural teeth. You won’t be rushed into making a decision regarding your own oral health. We will explain the pros and cons of all your tooth replacement options, and give you the time and space to make your own decision.

Health Fund Rebates

If you’re a health fund member, you can claim your fund rebate directly via HICAPS at Given Smile. You’ll pay only the applicable gap for your dental services. Most health funds are accessible through HICAPS.
