Regain your confidence and enjoy a healthy diet by replacing lost or missing teeth with a professionally made denture.
The loss of teeth not only impacts our ability to eat, but it has a negative effect on our self-esteem and makes it hard to lead a healthy and normal life. Dentures could be a great solution if you need to replace a couple or even a whole upper- or lower set of teeth and it is a lot more cost-effective than crowns or bridges.
Custom made to fit your mouth; a partial denture will carefully slot artificial teeth into the ‘gaps’ that were left by missing teeth while full dentures replace a full row of teeth on the bottom or lower jaw. In both these types of dentures the new artificial teeth are held in position with the help of acrylic (plastic) or metal mounts which also keep the teeth in place when you chew. The denture will also provide the necessary jaw and facial muscle support to prevent muscles in the face from sagging, something that can make us look older in an instant.
Getting accustomed to a denture can sometimes take a bit of time, but once you do, you’ll be able to eat comfortably and be confident to smile with your brand-new set of completed teeth.
