A denture is a removable restoration used to replace missing teeth. Dentures are designed to look and function just like natural teeth. Today’s modern dentures can look very lifelike and feel comfortable. At Somerford House, we only provide natural-looking dentures for missing teeth.
Tooth loss can negatively influence your self-esteem and chewing ability, as well as affecting the function of your bite. As the teeth support and give structure to your cheeks, tooth loss may cause the skin on your face to sag, making you look older than your years.
Types of denture
If you have a full set of missing teeth, we will replace them with a complete denture. If we only need to replace a small number of teeth, we’ll use a partial denture or over denture.
Dentures are usually made from acrylic resins. Acrylic dentures are often made with high strength metal inserts to eliminate the risk of breakage. With modern cosmetic dentistry advances, there is now a wide range of cosmetic dentures available to provide you with bright, natural-looking teeth.
If you need to have teeth extracted, your gums and surrounding tissue will need time to heal before the final dentures are created. In this case, we will place an immediate denture so that you always have a natural-looking smile.
Immediate dentures can be modified easily during the healing process, which can take a few months. The biggest advantage of dentures is that they rarely require anything other than impressions.
