Complex Dental Treatment
If you have one or more missing teeth, a bridge may be a way to give you natural looking teeth again. Supported by the teeth adjacent to the space, there are a number of ways in which bridges can be designed.
Some bridges require that the teeth on one or both sides of the gap are crowned to hold a false tooth in the gap; these are called “conventional bridges”. Other “resin-retained bridges” simply ‘stick’ to adjacent teeth and require little, if any, drilling.
A bridge is permanently fixed in the mouth and is never taken out. This requires excellent gum health and meticulous daily cleaning.
A well-maintained conventional bridge may last approximately 10 years. Resin-retained bridges often need ‘re-gluing’ more frequently.
If you have a number of missing teeth, then dentures may be the most suitable option for you. These are plastic, or plastic and metal “plates” which hold a number of teeth to give you a good smile and help with speech, eating and normal function.
Dentures are custom-made appliances made almost entirely by hand. With private dentures, the materials used are of a superior quality to give you optimal comfort and the appearance of a natural dentition. They are also constructed by more experienced, senior dental technicians.
Teeth: high impact teeth to give longevity and excellent aesthetics, shaped to match your facial structure and gender.
Gums: colour controlled to match your natural gum colour.
These can also be combined with implant attachments so that the denture has an excellent fit and will not come out when you are eating or speaking.
