We can offer multiple options available to replace missing teeth. A gap increases the load on adjacent teeth, and may also cause them to drift into the void that has been left, which can affect your bite. Apart from dental implants, the two main ways to replace missing teeth are: a denture or a fixed bridge.

Dentures

A denture is a removable appliance which replaces missing teeth. Modern techniques such as using an intraoral scanner, and cameras ensure that the dentures are a good fit and also look as realistic as possible.

A complete denture is one that replaces all natural teeth in the upper or lower jaw, and supports the facial muscles, cheeks and lips. Without this, patients may struggle to speak, eat or smile with confidence, and sagging facial muscles can contribute to an aged appearance.

Partial dentures are those that fill in spaces left by missing teeth, and fit around your natural teeth. Sometimes clasps and other attachments are used to connect to your natural teeth and keep the dentures in place.

Plates can be made from acrylic (plastic) or metal, which can be decided after a comprehensive examination with your dentist, whom will look at the condition of your gums and remaining teeth to come to a decision about what kind of denture would be best for you.

Bridges

A dental bridge is a permanent option to fill a gap, where a false tooth (pontic) is attached to the teeth on either side. It is suitable when there are fewer teeth to replace. Pontics are made from high quality materials to naturally blend with your other teeth, and the base is usually made of metal with any visible areas being covered by tooth coloured porcelain. Different types of bridges are available, including conventional and adhesive bridges. Deciding which bridge is suitable for your gap is determined by the dentist after having a complete look at your teeth, x rays and your bite.

The teeth are then scanned, which avoids the need to take messy impressions.

Photos are taken to send to the lab to get the best shade match possible, for the most natural results possible. When the bridge is made, the latest bonding techniques used to cement the bridge in place.
