A denture is a removable appliance that replaces missing teeth. A partial denture fits around existing natural teeth and can improve speaking, chewing and appearance. They can be made out of plastic (acrylic) or metal (cobalt-chrome). A full denture replaces all teeth on one jaw. Alternatives to dentures can include dental implants and bridges. Sometimes, dentures can be constructed to work in harmony with specially placed dental implants.
At Terrigal Dental, we offer a range of denture services, including both making new dentures and repairing or adding to existing dentures. A number of our denture services can be done on-site, meaning that our patients can have their work completed more quickly.
