My implant teeth

Dental implants have transformed my life

I arrived at 32 Whites Dentist in Marple with very serious problems with my teeth and gums - requiring dedicated and professional intervention.  John Mantel and Ian Wellings provided expert advice and superb dental treatment - performing a series of operations and procedures for dental implants which have been life changing - highly recommended!

Dental implants have transformed my life and feel extremely comfortable.  Absolutely incredible compared to the alternative which for me was unsustainable.

Julia Fitton, Romily, Stockport

I wish I had done this years ago

"My teeth were in an extremely poor condition. Bridges and Crowns which had previously been fitted were constantly becoming loose and sometimes actually falling out.
During treatment I was given sedation due to my extreme nervousness. Throughout my treatment period I was kept fully informed of what was happening and all my questions were fully answered. At all times I was given constant reassurance which helped to put me at ease. The care and attention given to me was brilliant.
I feel much more confident with my appearance, happy to smile and brought a new lease of life for me. I wish I had done this years ago."

Carol Pritchard. Marple, Stockport.

Patient testimonials

“For anyone who may be thinking of having a 'new smile', don't put it off for 2 years like I did, as it has made such a difference in my confidence and self image.”

“Over the past 18 months I have received the very best of care from everyone at the practice. I was quite apprehensive and nervous about the various procedures, but John’s patience and understanding put me at ease. I now have a smile I am proud of.  I am delighted with the result.”
