Dentures are a removable appliance used as a replacement of missing teeth. There are two common types of dentures.
A Full Denture is used when all teeth in that arch have been lost.
A Partial Denture is used when there are some teeth missing.
A small portion of the outer surface of your tooth enamel is removed and replaced with high strength porcelain made to the desired shape and colour.
A Bridge is used to replace a missing tooth. The teeth either side of the missing tooth are "capped" and a bridging crown/pontic replaces the gap. Crowns and bridges are cemented in the mouth and are fixed permanent solutions.
A Make Over or "Smile Design" is a process of improving someone's smile and is usually when patients want a dramatic change to their appearance.
These devices are either a type of mouth guard or splint used to treat conditions such as bruxism, TMJ disorders, facial pain, tinnitus, migraine and stress-related headaches, sleep apnoea and snoring.
A Cosmetic Consultation is a service we offer to patients so we can understand what it is they would like improved about their smile and to advise them on how this may be achieved.
This could be for a tooth colour match for a crown, discussing improvements to dentures, whether implants would be beneficial for providing a full smile design proposal.
Digital Dentures are the same as conventional dentures and made using Computer Aided Dental Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CADD/CAM) technology. New software has been developed which means, in most cases, dentures can now be designed using CADD systems and are 3D printed, milled or a combination of the two.
