Here at Birchwood Dental we understand what really makes a great smile so we can create natural, beautiful and most importantly, comfortable dentures.
The loss of your teeth can have a negative effect on your self-confidence, impact on your ability to chew food properly and also leave you with a misaligned bite. Since your teeth provide structure and support to your face and cheeks, tooth loss can result in your facial features sagging which can make you appear much older than you are. Our natural looking dentures can greatly improve the quality of a wearer’s life.
Dentures are generally fabricated from acrylic resins. With advances in modern cosmetic dentistry there are a wide variety of materials available for dentures. Chrome metal bases can also be used to minimize the area of the mouth covered by the denture base and in circumstances where the force of a patient’s bite is very heavy. This is sometimes the preferred choice for discreet, lightweight partial dentures.
If you are missing all of your teeth then a complete set of upper and lower dentures is used to replace them. It may well be easier to remove one or two remaining teeth to allow a complete set of dentures to be worn. However if only a few of the teeth need replacing then in many cases your cosmetic dentist may be able to fit a partial denture/over denture
