If you’re missing a number of teeth, dentures could be the solution for you.

Dentures are removable replacement teeth, designed to preserve a person’s ability to speak and chew properly while restoring the aesthetics of their smile. They are made from various materials, including metal, nylon and plastic, and are useful for tackling any problems that may come about as a result of missing teeth. 

Who might benefit from dentures?

Anyone who is missing some or all of their teeth can benefit from dentures. Missing teeth can affect a person’s appearance and have an impact on their ability to chew and speak properly. They can also cause issues with confidence and self-esteem. Fortunately, dentures can remedy such problems, restoring both the function and structure of a person’s teeth.

What are the different types of dentures?

There are two types of dentures: partial and full. Partial dentures are used to replace a small number of missing teeth, while full dentures, sometimes referred to as complete dentures, can replace a full set of upper or lower teeth (or both).

How are dentures fitted?

After an initial consultation, your dentist will take a mould or scan of your gums along with various measurements. This information will then be forwarded to a dental technician who will craft your bespoke dentures.

How long do dentures last?

Over time, dentures can wear down and the shape of your gums can alter with age. With appropriate care, a standard set of dentures may last between 5-7 years before needing to be replaced.

Those with dentures should also uphold a proper tooth brushing routine, to ensure the health of their gums and remaining teeth. 

Will dentures alter my appearance?

Modern dentures are designed to look as natural as possible. They will closely match a person’s natural teeth and maintain the structure of the face by supporting facial muscles and upholding the lips and cheeks.
