There is absolutely no reason why people that wear dentures shouldn't have the opportunity to have a beautiful natural smile.
Dentures can be made from Acrylic or from chrome and acrylic materials. They are used in a variety of different situations and for a variety of reasons..
There are approximately five to six stages involved in making a cosmetic and functional denture and the process lasts approximately eight to twelve weeks.
Dentures should be replaced approximately every ten years because the supporting gum and bone will change shape over this time. For wearing ill- fitting dentures is proven to cause accelerated deterioration of bone support in the mouth.
Appearance of teeth
Teeth comprising the denture are chosen according to shape, colour, facial aesthetics and individual preferences are taken into account. At our practice your preference and decision is of paramount importance in the selection of teeth and their suitability to you facial aesthetics.
We use very natural looking acrylic teeth for our dentures so that they will mimic actual teeth. There is an opportunity as part of the denture process to preview the teeth in your mouth before the denture is finalised.
Appearance of Gums
Colours of gums vary amongst people and amongst people of different racial background.
We ensure that the gum colour is also correct so that when you smile no one will know that a denture is being worn.
