Dentist Testimonials

“I can refer cases to David that I believe are outside my clinical envelope, for example, sinus grafting procedures, which David is very skilled at doing. David has a particular interest and expertise in anterior aesthetic implant dentistry, of which I have gained hands-on experience using provisional restorations to develop the fine detail required that optimises the final prosthetic outcome. He is supportive with taking CBCT scans for cases that I do at the practice and helps report on these, which enables a team approach to treatment planning. I am happy restoring implants that David has placed for my patients, and he has been a brilliant mentor, enabling me to develop my surgical skills for cases that I treat myself. We sing from the same hymn sheet with regards to our approach to implant dentistry, always trying to keep treatment planning simple and appropriate, and aspiring for predictable outcomes.”

Patient Testimonials

“Dear David and team, I wanted to say a huge thank you to you all for my amazing new teeth! I can honestly say I have smiled more in the past day than I have since I lost my tooth when I was 10! I was always so self-conscious so tended to smile without showing my teeth. Plus they don’t just look natural but they feel great too. I am thrilled. Thanks for an incredible confidence boost. Warm Regards.”

Fiona, Dorchester

Case Photos

David Furze Case 1 – Following years of having no incisor teeth, the patient did not have enough bone to support an implant without extensive bone grafting. The patient decided to have a conventional bridge to replace the teeth. This was completed using our intraoral scanner to give the patient a passively fitted conventional bridge and a fantastic aesthetic result.

David Furze Case 2 – This patient attended the surgery with concerns regarding his aesthetic appearance. He initially asked for the removal of all teeth and an “all on four”. We discussed the aesthetic and functional benefits of maintaining his dentition before replacing his existing crowns with all-ceramic crowns and veneers on the remaining teeth.

David Furze Case 3 – Many different treatments were used to complete this incredibly difficult case. The previous bridge was un-aesthetic and two of the abutments were un-restorable. Digital smile design was completed before early implant placement with simultaneous guided bone regeneration. Surgery was completed to shape the gums around the canine teeth, then a series of provisional crowns were used to get a great aesthetic outcome for the permanent crown and bridge work. The patient is incredibly happy with the result.

David Furze Case 4 – Following a traumatic loss of the patient’s central incisor, an implant was placed using our standard techniques. This involves early implant placement with simultaneous guided bone regeneration, provisional restoration and soft tissue maturation before a customised impression and all-ceramic crown. Our published research has demonstrated that this leads to the best aesthetic result.
