If you are missing teeth due to damage, decay or injury, dentures are a convenient restorative option to replace your teeth and restore your smile. At Platinum Dental Studio we use state-of-the-art technology to create the perfect custom-made dentures to suit you!
What are dentures?
Dentures are removable false teeth that are worn to replace missing teeth and gum. These artificial teeth are customised to comfortably fit your mouth and designed to best match your natural teeth.
With the support of dentures, you can enhance your appearance and be able to enjoy food and speak comfortably.
Types of dentures available
Partial dentures are suitable for patients who have lost just one or a few of their natural teeth and wish to fill in the gap(s). They fill in the spaces where these teeth are missing and attach to your natural teeth with a metal clasp.
Full or complete dentures replace all of the natural in either the upper or lower jaw. They suit patients who have lost most or all of their natural teeth.
These dentures are fitted in your mouth immediately after teeth are removed. This will allow you to immediately restore the aesthetic and function of your teeth. It can be a temporary solution in the journey of getting a permanent fixed or removable prosthesis. The steps and procedures of making these dentures may be different to normal dentures, and we can help you go through these procedures easier.
Implant supported dentures
These dentures are normally supported by two to four dental implants. Unlike normal dentures resting solely on the gum, implant retained dentures are less likely to move around the mouth. You will be able to eat better, speak more clearly and more importantly, smile with more confidence. Unfortunately, not everyone has sufficient bone for implants, only your dentist can find out whether it is an option for you.
