Dentures

What are Dentures?

Dentures are removable false teeth made of acrylic (plastic) or metal. They fit snugly over the gums to replace missing teeth and prevent potential problems caused by gaps. Gaps left by missing teeth can cause problems with eating and speech, and teeth either side of the gap may grow into the space. In some cases all of the teeth may need to be removed and replaced.

Depending on the health of your smile, you may need either complete dentures, which replace all your upper or lower teeth, or partial dentures, which replace just 1 tooth or a few missing teeth. 

Benefits of Dentures

Dentures can improve the appearance of your smile and give you back your confidence. They will also help you to enjoy your favourite foods again, and family social events.
