Dentures are used to replace lost or missing teeth and are either full dentures, which replace all of your original teeth, or partial, which are used as an alternative to a bridge to fill gaps in your teeth
A full denture is a removable acrylic base, or plate, which sits over the gums. On top of this sits a set of crafted acrylic teeth, which will be made to look as natural as possible. A partial denture is attached to the teeth either side of the gap.
When fitting a denture, your dentist will take an impression and precise measurements of the mouth over a number of visits. These will be given to a dental technician, who will build your dentures to the perfect size and shape.
