Dentures

Dentures

Dentures come in all shapes and sizes, and can be an extremely good option for replacing missing teeth – but they do have a bit of a bad reputation. Dentures are custom made for each patient, with several stages of planning usually involved to ensure they are both comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing. Dentures can be an ideal solution for replacing several missing teeth at once and can offer a more cost-effective solution to filling unwanted spaces.

Dentures come in essentially two different materials; either acrylic-based, or metal-based. The material is usually a decision made between yourself and the dentist based on your own dentition and the shape of your mouth. Acrylic dentures can be used as an immediate temporary solution to replace missing teeth before permanent fixed solutions like bridges or implants can be placed, or before a metal-based denture is made.

There is also a cost difference between the two, with acrylic being the cheaper option. The artificial teeth used are matched to the shade and shape of your existing dentition – these will be shown to you during the process of the denture being made to ensure the best result.

The life-span of a denture varies according to type; immediate dentures normally require replacement after 3 months but following that a life-span of 4-7 years can be expected if the denture is well-maintained and relined as needed.

No more Impressions!

In keeping with our promise to provide our patients with the newest, most innovative dental technology, we are proud to introduce our new iTero scanner. Our scanner enables us to digitally create a model of your mouth, capturing 6000 frames per second to give us a high quality image. This image can be used to plan treatment, to monitor the shape and size of your teeth, or even to simulate an orthodontic result post-Invisalign treatment.
