Restore & be proud of your smile once more with Dental Implants
Amazing Smiles are highly experienced cosmetic restoration specialists in aesthetic dental implants and dentures. Established on the Gold Coast since 2000, we have grown to 5 clinics throughout South East Queensland.
Our Australian qualified Drs are renown throughout the local area and are proud to have performed extensive dental implant surgeries for hundreds of patients.
Dental Implants are an ideal solution for missing or severely damaged teeth. The procedure of implants involves surgically inserting a metal component into the gum and jawbone to solidify it’s position.
The screw of the implant (abutment) acts as an alternative to your tooth’s natural root system. It helps to solidify the tooth replacement. The delicate process is usually performed under anaesthetic and may require several visits to allow healing of the gum. Our dental surgeons and nurses aim to provide utmost care and gentle compassion towards each patient. To accommodate the patient, we provide $0 Interest Free payment options, and treatment plans to best suite you.
Dental implants can be either a singular or multiple teeth, otherwise known as a bridge. A porcelain crown is specifically shaped and coloured to match your current existing teeth.
Although there is a larger initial outlay in costs, dental implants are often more preferred by our patients since the teeth replacements are secured into place by the implant. Therefore implants feel more solidified like natural teeth unlike removable dentures, which can move during speech or eating if not inserted correctly.
At Amazing Smiles, we’re proud that all of the components of our dental implants are designed and made in Australia.

How much does a dental implant cost?
The costs of dental implants vary between patients. Some patients may require a singular implant while others may require an All-on-4 implant.
Single implants include the artificial root of the tooth, metallic post insertion, and porcelain crown. Your porcelain crown is specifically shaded and designed to look natural among natural existing teeth.
Investments for a singular implant average $4,500-$5,500 varying upon factors specific to the patients needs.
All-on4 dental implants, otherwise known as an implant bridge is an extensive process as they are generally used to replace an entire row of teeth. Therefore they also consist of an entire row of dental crowns, which average between 8 through to 12 teeth.
Treatment plans and costing for either case uniquely vary from patient to patient as there are different variables that must be taken into account. As a result, all of our clinics provide a FREE initial consultation for quotes regarding dental implants so that we can thoroughly examine what you specifically require. This enables our cosmetic implant dentists to accurately compile a treatment plan that is best suited for you.
Does private health cover dental implants?
Private health insurers vary between policies and their levels. Therefore it’s best to clarify cover by contacting your provider directly.
In most cases major extra options cover a portion of the costs for dental implants.
Please note that amounts vary between providers.
Does Medicare cover dental implants?
No, unfortunately Medicare does not contribute towards implant fees.

Dentures are removable substitutes for missing teeth
Our aesthetic smile makeover specialists can provide affordable full acrylic, flexible or metal denture solutions.
We use the latest in 3D scanning tools to digitally scan your teeth. As a result, this enables our team to accurately design dentures that can perfectly fit your gum and existing teeth. Using the latest in digital design technologies, we accurately shade and fabricate artificial porcelain teeth. These are known as dental crowns or bridge if multiple teeth are required. We specifically design our denture restorations to look natural among your pre-existing teeth.
Having missing teeth can make you feel self-conscious about your smile and make eating and speaking difficult. It also has a negative impact on your oral health, so it is vital that they be replaced.
The options for dentures are dependent upon how many teeth are missing and they include: partial, full dentures and dental implants on hybrid dentures.
YES! We also repair and reline dentures.
Removable Partial Dentures
Removable Partial Dentures are constructed from either acrylic/plastic, cobalt chrome and new flexible plastic called valplast.
Partial denture are used when there are a few missing teeth in the jaw.
Partial dentures, otherwise known as removable dentures or multiple teeth bridge are replacement teeth that designed and attached to an artificial pink gum base. The framework of the structure can be is held together by acrylic or metal compounds. Partial dentures are held in place between natural existing teeth by ‘clasps’.
In some cases crowns or additional composite resin may be used on neighboring teeth to improve aesthetics and fitting.
Full Dentures can be either be for the upper or lower jaw. The gold standard for lower dentures these days is to have 2 implants in the canine region to hold the denture in place.
This is an advantage as it will hold the jaw bone and stops the bone from shrinking. Often old age patient that have ill fitting dentures will greatly improve their chewing and speech if this procedure is done.
Full acrylic dentures, are a cost effective solution for those missing a substantial amount of teeth. Full dentures are usually recommended to patients requiring a full replacement row of teeth. Being made entirely of acrylic they are much larger than metal or flexible dentures and can at times be obtrusive.
Hybrid Implants is the best “Royals Royce ” treatment where the denture is held securely by more than 2 implants.
Often it will be 4 or more implants holding the denture.
These implants can be staged for later when the patient can afford a fixed porcelain bridge.
