For Dentists

Why refer your patient to Vermilion?

In many cases, your patient will require the input of two or three clinicians to ensure the best possible outcome. Vermilion offers multi-disciplinary care for the benefit of your patients – no other dental clinic in Scotland brings together orthodontics, periodontology, restorative dentistry, oral surgery and endodontics.

We aim to co-operate with referring practitioners and build genuine clinical partnerships. The Vermilion team is delighted to encourage all dental colleagues to visit the clinic to meet with their patients and observe their implant surgery, as well as discuss cases on an ongoing basis, resulting in a truly collaborative and open approach.

Refer and Restore

This is where practitioners refer patients to Vermilion for implant surgery, and restore the implants themselves. This is an ideal solution for referring practitioners who would like to restore their patient’s dental implants, however do not wish to undertake the surgical side.

Implant Crown

Once an Implant has been placed an abutment is fitted to hold the Crown. The abutment and the base of the crown may be metal. However, in certain light, this can make the tooth look dull. An alternative is for the abutment to be made of white material and the Crown made of solid porcelain. This will give a more natural look to the tooth.
