At Aesthetic Smiles we offer patients modern choices in tooth replacement for one or more missing teeth. Gaps caused by absent teeth can affect dental bite, nutrition, communication, appearance and confidence. Dentures and other tooth replacement treatments, such as crowns and bridges, restore function and smile aesthetics. Dentures provide a replacement for missing teeth on the upper and lower, or both, dental arches.

Tooth gaps place additional strain on neighbouring teeth and can lead to trauma of the teeth and gums. Gum disease, tooth decay or bone shrinkage may be the future outcomes if missing teeth are not replaced in time. As a result of this facial volume may decline and this can lead to a drawn, sunken look and make the person look older.
A bridge to neighbouring teeth may anchor partial or temporary dentures used to replace missing teeth on the lower or upper jaw. Bridges, clasps or precision attachments are usually used to secure a partial denture towards the back of a dental arch or between teeth.
Acrylic, flexible and implant-supported dentures can replace full sets of teeth for natural dental function and appeal. Partial or full sets of dentures provide dental structure that supports the gums and facial muscles for proper expression.
The denture plate is custom-made to fit the gum tissue and is usually made from acrylic or metal materials. The attached false teeth are comprised of acrylic resin which is strong and durable and designed to mimic natural teeth. Partial dentures can be plate-based and both full and partial dentures may be fixed to dental implants for enhanced support.
Replacing missing teeth enables patients to effectively eat and communicate once again whilst also improving smile aesthetics.
