My confidence is higher than ever and I’m so much happier

5 50 Dental Implants

On the 6th of August, we flew back to Sofia to the wonderful Smile Dental Services for the final visit. Nine months before this I had my upper and lower jaws teeth removed and temporary implants fitted.

So, day one, removed temporary teeth, as I was waiting for the horrible slime type gunk for impressions, these guys came out with the most amazing technology, there was a wand type instrument that went in my mouth, was waved around ( obviously not a technical term) as this was being done, on the monitor I could see a 3d picture of my gums and jaw, awesome!

Replaced the temporary teeth, and I left the clinic for the day.

For the next few days we explored Sofia, went on excursions to caves, waterfalls seven lakes, all in beautiful Bulgaria, where the folk are nice and friendly.
So, in between us having fun, the guys at the clinic had been working hard on making my new teeth, there was five visits to the clinic in total, for making and fitting and discussing colour of teeth, at the end of each visit, you leave with teeth, so the worries that I had were totally unfounded.
It was so nice that the same team that were there with me the first time were still there smiling and laughing with me.

So, the crux of this review is to tell you that there is nothing to be anxious of, there is no pain and everything is so well worth coming to Sofia.

Oh, and my teeth look fabulous, they look real, but only so much better, my confidence is higher than ever and I’m so much happier, which in turn makes my family happier.

I cannot recommend Smile Dental Services enough, if you read my review of my first visit you will know that I researched so many implants and dental clinics for around two years before deciding on where I wanted to go, and I am glad that chose Smile Dental Services.

Thank you to everyone who looked after me so well, I will never forget you.

Dear Lynn, thank you for your great feedback for our full mouth restoration service. We couldn't be happier to hear that you find your permanent teeth fabulous and your confidence has increased. Thank you for trusting Smile Dental Services - Bulgaria!

These people are the best for value and they are one of the best dental teams there is

5 50 Dentist Consultation

With severe bone loss, gum disease, and just 10 loose teeth left I was told I would need bone grafts, sinus lifts and membrane transplant surgery. It would be a year minimum before bridges could be fitted.
Then I discovered Smile Dental Services.

I read the reviews both here and on Google. I suggest you do too.
In 3 days I had amazing new teeth !! These people are the best for value and they are one of the best dental teams there is. Read my full review and many others. I cannot thank them enough and recommend you check them out.

Thank you so much for your kind words, Dave! We are so glad to hear that we were able to help you get the smile you deserve. We appreciate your recommendation and we look forward to helping more people in the future.

They were very sweet and so nice

5 50 Dental Implants, Extractions, Panoramic Dental X-Ray

Full top and bottom jaw restoration.

This is a long one, so bear with me, I just want to give you a thorough account of my experience so that you can make up your mind to change your life for the better.

My teeth were destroyed and most of them fell out, I was devastated, lost all my self confidence and self worth. I researched for around two years and it took one year to decide that I was ready to choose the right clinic for me, and oh boy, did I make the right choice.

Arrived in Bulgaria on Tuesday night, first appointment was Wednesday morning. When I got to the clinic and I was nervous, we met the most amazing team of people in a very modern, super clean high tech dental unit. First thing, panoramic X-ray, well, I have metal plates holding my top jaw together, so complications for the team. They bypassed the problem, what a fantastic clever bunch of folk.

Next, come through to the chair, ok here we go! I have terrible veins, so they kept collapsing, my wee brain was thinking, jeez ho, is the universe trying to tell me something here, is this supposed to happen? I really felt for the staff, I felt like I was the worst possible patient that they’d ever had!

But nope, they were very sweet and so nice. So, we went with the injection of a relaxing drug into the muscle on my hip, then the injections in my mouth just like you get before you have a filling.

All numbed up now, sitting with my mouth wide open waiting for them to take out my teeth, within minutes, they were gone! Next the actual metal implants were going to be screwed into my jaw, not going to lie to you, as I have no reason to, there was a feeling of pressure, but that was it, no pain, stitched up where my teeth were removed, or maybe that was before the implants, it was that quick and painless that I may have gotten the implants and stitches the wrong way around. And then, sent back to our apartment.

I was expecting to be in agony, I forgot to mention that I was sent away with a prescription for three sets of painkillers. I honestly did not need to use them, I felt different, not pain, maybe a little uncomfortable, after all, my teeth were all taken out that day.

Thursday, had to come back for a fitting, wow! How fast was that!! A few little adjustments had to be made, away back to the apartment.
Friday, here we go, fitting of upper and lower jaw teeth, sat in the chair, they were fitted, I was shown my face in the mirror.

It has been so long since I had a smile that was straight and not lop sided, the teeth looked like my old teeth used to, (a very long time ago). They did not look fake or glow in the dark implants that you have seen on the nightmares of implants fitted in another country that you had to travel to.

I could hardly speak, not because of the teeth, but because I was so emotional. I have spent two years researching a good clinic, and oh boy did I do a brilliant job of picking the best, two years of hiding my mouth behind my hand or a mask, basically I shut myself away from the world because of how bad I looked because my teeth were crumbling away to dust.

Last appointment was on the Monday morning, I danced into the clinic delighted with myself, a wee rub down, the final sheet of instructions on oral healthcare and away we go.

It’s exactly one week since I’ve had my new teeth fitted, I can eat without pain, and the little lisp that I developed has almost gone. My husband is so happy as I have reverted into the person that I used to be, my grown up kids have got their real mother back and my grandsons are laughing at me because they can see my face, with teeth, laughing and joking with them. They all see a difference in my mental change as well as my physical one.

All my friends have given me nothing but really positive statements and my friends are like me, honest opinions only. My best friend of thirty two years has now started saving money to get her teeth fixed here.

Now, between six and twelve months I will return for the final part of my treatment, and I look forward to meeting these wonderful people again, they honestly have changed me back to the cheekiest oldest rebel that used to be me, I’m back, and I cannot be happier.

If you’ve read all of my review here, then I know that you are really serious, If you have any doubts or questions, go ahead, and contact me, but rest assured, I will praise these folk to the moon and back and by the time you’ve finished speaking to me, you will make the right choice and travel to Sophia to meet these miracle workers.

I am in no way affiliated with this clinic, I am a patient only, therefore I was not paid for this. P.S, I’m Scottish, so praise is never given unless it is deserved, and boy, it is deserved.

Would have no hesitation in recommending

5 50 Dental Implants • Paid: 17121 лв.

I am 33 years of age and I was considering implant treatment because as a child my adult teeth did not develop on either my upper or lower upper and my dentures were becoming increasingly uncomfortable.
I visited a couple of dental surgeries here in Scotland to receive estimates for my treatment. I was told that I required approx 11 implants, 25 crowns and bone work on my jaw. I was quoted in the region of £22,500 ~ £30,000 involving several visits to the surgery.
In view of the cost, I decided to explore options in Europe. I read several accounts of implant treatment in Sofia in Bulgaria. One site, Smile Dental Services in particular stood out for 2 reasons:-
1) Pain-free treatment was offered
2) UK telephone number was available.
I called the UK telephone number and I was transferred through to Sofia & explained my requirements to Dr Dimitrov personally. He explained, in excellent English, that my case was unusual but was confident that he could provide me with implant treatment. I was encouraged when I saw that Dr Dimitrov had trained in USA & had been awarded several diplomas. Over the following week or two, Dr Dimitrov telephoned & e-mailed me several times to explain what he was planning to do &to confirm costs involved.
I agreed to go ahead with the treatment & Dr Dimitrov arranged hotel accommodation within walking distance of his clinic & also provided a driver to meet me at airport & take me to the hotel.
The first day, Monday morning, I was taken to x-ray lab in Sofia where I was x-rayed and given digital copies of my x-ray. I was then taken to meet Dr Dimitrov at the Smile Dental Services clinic. After a thorough examination, he said that treatment would commence immediately.
Price was exactly as quoted to me before I left UK. Dr Dimitrov explained that I required one extraction, some artificial bone work, 11 implants & 25 crowns. After he had explained how the treatment was to be carried he commenced with the treatment which took less than 4 hours. I was able to return to my hotel with no bruising or swelling & was amazed that all I felt was a small ‘nip’ where I was injected.
I returned to the clinic a couple of times over the following 2 days just to have a check-up. On the Thursday I returned to have the crowns fitted and any adjustments made & I emerged with a wonderful smile that had not seen for nearly 30 years!! I was pleasantly surprised when I was told that I did not have to return for any further treatment.
I reckon that including the flights & hotel costs I saved over 50% of the UK costs & would have no hesitation in recommending Dr Dimitrov & his team at Smile Dental Services for a truly excellent & pain free treatment.
I am pleased to be able to add that 6 months later I am able to enjoy my food in a way that I could not ever have imagined & just wish that I had discovered Smile Dental Services earlier.

I am a very nervous patient

5 50 Dental Implants

I have been treated by Dr. Dimitrov since 2002. I am a very nervous patient, but he has always been polite and considerate. He speaks excellent English due to his time working and studying in the USA. I have a complete set of implants in my upper jaw. The sockets have been set to allow for bone growth. The abutments and crowns will be fitted in six months.
