Christmas is a time for sharing happy times and treating yourself and others to presents, fine food and a few drinks, but if you’re feeling apprehensive about Christmas or dreading missing out on your favourite foods because of missing teeth, we can help! With our tooth replacement treatments, we can ensure that you will be able enjoy a slap-up festive meal and feel confident when you smile this Christmas!
Even a single missing tooth can have a massive impact on the look of your smile, as well as your confidence and the way you eat and speak, so we strongly recommend replacing missing teeth. We have a host of options available and are here to help, whether you need one new tooth or a full arch of new teeth.
Dental bridges: dental bridges are a popular choice for patients who are looking for a simple and affordable solution for a single missing tooth. Bridges are most commonly made from a false tooth that is connected to a new crown on either side. Bridges can be made from porcelain to ensure a natural result, and they usually last for around 10-15 years. Treatment usually involves 2 sessions around 2-3 weeks apart.
Dentures: dentures are commonly used to replace full sets of missing teeth, but we also offer partial dentures for those with fewer gaps. Dentures are designed to look and function like natural teeth, and modern styles are very aesthetically pleasing. Dentures are more affordable than dental implants and the treatment time is much shorter. Dentures are custom-made for the individual and we check the fit and the condition of the denture every time you have a routine check-up.
Dental implants: dental implants are made from titanium. They are small, screw-like appliances, and are inserted directly into openings in the jaw bone. The implants replace the root of the tooth and the crown, bridge or denture replaces the visible part of the missing tooth. Implants are built to last a lifetime, and they provide the same standard of functionality as natural teeth. They can be used to replace any number of lost teeth and are suitable for patients of all ages.
