Tooth loss can occur as a result of injury, trauma or severe decay. It is always worthwhile to replace lost teeth, not just for aesthetic reasons, but also to restore the function of the teeth. The teeth support the lips and cheeks and missing teeth can cause them to sag, which can affect the overall appearance of the face and make you look older. Dentures are an effective means of replacing teeth and restoring full function to the mouth.
Although there are several methods to replace missing teeth, some methods such as individual dental implants or bridges may not be suitable in all circumstances or be your desired choice of treatment.
We will clearly advise you about every option to replace your missing teeth, your suitability and the pros and cons. The cosmetic dentures we provide are carefully designed to function and blend-in with the look of your remaining natural teeth so that they are comfortable and as life like as possible.
Many people still conjure up images of bulky, unattractive sets of false teeth when they hear the word ‘denture’, but modern cosmetic dentures are very light and natural looking and are designed for maximum comfort.
Complete dentures are used to substitute complete sets of absent teeth, while partial dentures are used to substitute a small number of missing teeth.
There are many different types of denture but the most common include:
Dentures are held in place by the natural suction between the denture and the gums and fixative is not usually required.
The procedure to fit dentures is straightforward. During the initial consultation your dentist will talk to you about your expectations and what the treatment will involve. They will then examine your mouth and create impressions, which will be sent away to a dental laboratory where they can create a bespoke set of dentures. Your trial dentures will be fitted and your dentist will check that the look and fit of the dentures is good. If you are happy your final dentures can be fitted and you can begin to enjoy your new smile.
Cosmetic dentures at 33 Dental are no longer the stuff of nightmares, but will give you a natural looking and functional smile.
Many of you will be aware that during the latest Covid 19 update dental practices have been given the green light to re-open the surgery from 8th June. Whilst this is good news, there are a number of procedures that we have being putting in place to make treatment safe for our patients and staff, as we are sure you will appreciate, this is taking some time to set up.
Our intention is, if at all possible to commence opening on the 8th June but this is entirely dependent on our ability to obtain training and appropriate PPE which as you know there is a great shortage of. This equipment will be essential for us to be able to operate.
From 8th- 29th of June we will be prioritising the most urgent of cases including those who have been experiencing problems during this lockdown period. We will contact you directly to arrange an appointment. This period may be extended if required.
Rest assured we are trying our utmost to source this PPE as soon as possible to enable us to extend our treatment further to include fillings, crown/bridge work, root treatments and surgical extractions, scale & polish ect.
We anticipate that it will be several weeks before we will be able to commence these more advanced procedures.
This is a rapidly changing environment which we are adapting to as quickly as we possibly can. We really appreciate your patience and understanding throughout this difficult period and look forward to welcoming you back to the practice soon.
