High-quality dentures can look and feel very similar to natural teeth. When you have missing teeth, dentures make eating and speaking easier and more enjoyable. Cosmetic dentures can also improve the visual appearance of your face and smile.
Cosmetic dentures are removable false teeth mounted on an acrylic base that fit comfortably and securely over your gums.
There are three main types of cosmetic dentures:
Full Dentures – replacing entire rows of upper or lower teeth
Partial Dentures – replacing missing teeth between existing healthy teeth
Depending on your individual requirements, a denture treatment can take several appointments after your initial consultation. Dentures are custom-made to fit your mouth with optimal function.
Partial dentures usually take a few weeks, however full dentures take a little longer. Implants can take around six months to bond securely with the jawbone before implant retained dentures can be fitted.
A denture can feel strange at first and may take several weeks to get used to. Eating and speaking with dentures can take a little practice while your cheek and tongue muscles adapt.
Dentures are generally long-lasting with regular dental regime.
Over time your mouth can change, and dentures may also suffer wear and tear. We recommend coming in for a check-up once a year.
If you wear an old denture that is uncomfortable, making eating and speaking difficult, or if your dentures break, chip, crack or become loose, make an appointment at the practice.
A modern cosmetic denture can look like natural teeth for a confident and radiant smile.
