If you are missing one or more teeth, one way to replace them is with dentures. A full denture can replace a complete arch of teeth, while partial dentures can replace one or more missing teeth situated in the same arch but not necessarily side-by-side.
A denture consists of a gum-coloured acrylic base that sits directly on your gums and supports the denture teeth. Usually, partial dentures have clasps that fit around your natural teeth and are strengthened with a lightweight cobalt chrome frame.
Modern dentures look natural and are fabricated from lifelike materials, Dr Johnston collaborates closely with our dental laboratory to ensure you receive the very best results. When custom designing dentures for our patients, we take enormous care, choosing a gum-coloured base in exactly the right shade, and that we select denture teeth that are precisely the right size, shape, and shade to complement your appearance.
Every denture is made to provide the correct support for your cheeks and lips, and our full dentures restore the proper facial dimensions. If you currently wear older and worn full dentures, these can be prematurely ageing. You will most likely notice a real difference in your appearance when you receive your new dentures.
