If you are missing teeth or are unhappy with your current dentures, then we at All Smiles Family Dentistry can help. Tooth decay, injuries, gum disease or even simple wear and tear can cause us to lose our teeth. To fix this, we offer custom made dentures and partial dentures to help improve your smile. We understand that replacing missing teeth as quickly and as practically as possible is crucial to your oral health as well as to your appearance and self esteem. We all feel better showing off a bright, confident smile and dentures or partials are a quick and convenient way of achieving this.
When teeth are lost, facial muscles can sag which in turn can lead to us looking older. We don’t want this, right? Some of these issues can be fixed very quickly by fitting dentures which can be made to replicate your own teeth to limit changes in your natural appearance, all the time helping to improve your smile!
Are Dentures Right For Me?
There are many options for tooth replacements from implants to bridges. Dentures however may be your best solution if:
You can’t or don’t want to undergo surgery
You do not have sufficient bone in your jaw to support an implant
You want the fastest way to replace your teeth
You suffer from gum disease
For most of us, dentures are a very appealing option to quickly and professionally replace missing teeth and improve your facial profile right away. They are very beneficial for those looking for a removable option. They are quick to fit, taking just a few weeks in fact, easy to keep clean and are an easier option on your pocket too!

What Is The Process?
Following a consultation with us, where assessments are made as to the best way to proceed specifically for you, impressions will be made and sent to the laboratory for your perfect dentures to be made. After the dentures arrive at our office we will try the fit with you, making sure they are comfortable and making any small changes until you are fully satisfied. Just like wearing a new pair of shoes, new dentures can feel awkward for a short while after fitting as you get used to the feel of them. We will always be happy to schedule follow-up appointments so that any checks and adjustments can be made to your denture.
At All Smiles Family Dentistry we also offer partial dentures, which are plates with one or more false teeth on them. Our process is similar to the full denture procedure, with the partials simply closing the gap left by missing teeth but allowing the patient to keep any remaining teeth. Partials can either be removable or fixed.
