Dentures have really developed in recent years and can now look as real as your original teeth.
They are a great option for replacing lost or missing teeth, allowing you to enjoy a healthy diet and to smile with confidence.
They are a great and accurate fit, making them comfortable to wear, giving you confidence.
With modern dentures you have many options available to you including:
- Acrylic dentures
- CoCr dentures
- Ultra-light flexi dentures
- Biocompatible dentures
- BPS dentures
- And the ultimate-suction dentures!
Full dentures, to replace all your own teeth, fit snugly over your gums will help you to eat comfortably and speak clearly, and will improve your confidence and self-esteem.
Partial dentures replace teeth that are missing, and can sometimes be supported by the teeth you have left. If you have gaps between your teeth, then your other teeth may move to take up some of the space, so you could end up with crooked or tilted teeth. This could affect the way you bite and could damage your other teeth.
We believe that building on the natural form makes the cosmetic side of dentures far more straightforward. It may therefore be helpful for you to bring along a photo of yourself in earlier days. We provide a wax mock-up to show how you’ll look after treatment, and so you can be sure your expectations are being met.
Filling the gap of missing teeth
A Dental bridge is a fixed solution to replace a missing tooth or teeth by using the teeth either side of the gap as anchors. It is fitted into place, meaning it doesn’t need to be taken out at night and shouldn’t be confused with dentures.
Bridges can be a great alternative to dental implants or dentures. For example, if the teeth either side of the gap are damaged, a bridge not only fills the gap, but also treats the teeth either side in the process.
Type of bridges
Full coverage dental bridge – the teeth either side of the gap need to be shaped.
Resin Retained Bridge – is the right option if your teeth are healthy either side and an implant is not an option. This is also a bridge that is glued in to teeth either side of the gap so no damage is done. It is a cost effective option.
“I have attended Inverleith Dental Care routinely for many years. Recently I had reason to replace a denture and I was not looking forward to it having had real difficulties in the past. Following a consultation with Neeraj we agreed a price and the process began. Following a number of visits for the usual impressions (actually far more advanced than ‘usual’) We then went into a succession of visits during which adjustments were gradually made until the final result was achieved. I cannot be more pleased with the attention to detail and also that despite the fact that in the end this took a total of twelve appointments the original agreed price was honoured.
I think that what was most satisfying was that, although at times I felt that we should give up, Neeraj refused to be beaten, continuing to make tiny adjustments, with the result that I felt fully involved in achieving a successful outcome. Thank you to all concerned.”
