Dentures are removable false teeth made of acrylic (plastic) or metal (Colbalt Chromium).
Gaps left by missing teeth can cause problems with eating and speech. Remaining teeth may drift into empty spaces causing further complications.
You may therefore need either:
- complete dentures (a full set) – which replace all your upper or lower teeth, or
- partial dentures – which replace just one tooth or a few missing teeth
Dentures can help to prevent problems with eating and speech and they can also improve the appearance of your smile and give you confidence.
