Dentures can improve quality of life by enhancing your appearance as well as making eating and speaking more comfortable.

What are dentures?

Cosmetic dentures are removable replacements for rows of missing upper or lower teeth, worn during the day and taken out at night. Custom-made for your mouth, a denture fits firmly and comfortably over your gums, looking and feeling similar to natural teeth.

Dentures make eating easier and more enjoyable, giving you a broad smile.

What type of denture is right for me?

There are three main types of cosmetic dentures:

Full Dentures – replacing entire rows of teeth at the top or the bottom of your mouth, full or complete dentures are commonly secured in place with a dental adhesive.

Partial Dentures – filling the space left by several missing teeth, a partial denture is secured in place with clasps attached to healthy teeth.

Implant-Supported Dentures – supported by dental implants secured to the jawbone, this type of denture offers optimal comfort and convenience if your jawbone is healthy.

After your initial consultation and dental examination, your dentist will advise you on the most appropriate treatment option. If dentures are right for you, measurements of your mouth and impressions of your remaining teeth are taken.

Depending on your individual treatment, dentures can take several appointments to complete. In the case of implant-supported dentures, it can take around six months for the implant to fuse with the jawbone before the denture can be worn.

If you have missing teeth or you wear an old denture that is uncomfortable or loose, we can help. A new denture can make life easier, being more comfortable and enhancing your smile.
