Restorative Treatments


What are Dentures or False Teeth?

Dentures are fitted to replace gaps caused by missing or lost teeth to improve appearance by supporting sagging facial muscles and to improve ability to chew food. A full set of dentures is used to replace all your teeth. A part set of dentures is used to replace one or more missing teeth.
Dentures are custom made using impressions from your mouth. They are usually made of metal or plastic. They are removable so you can take them in and out of your mouth for cleaning. Even with a full set of dentures you can lose up to 80% of your chewing strength.

If you have a photo showing your original teeth we can try and reproduce the appearance by working with the position, shape, size, colour, spacing of the teeth we use to achieve a more natural appearance. In other words, every denture is unique.

Example of dentures for a patient with none of their own teeth These can be made to look like your original teeth if you have a photo to hand. We can use a variety of tooth colours, shapes and sizes. We can incorporate spaces, gaps, crowding-every denture is unique.
