Missing teeth have many negative effects both for aesthetics and function.
If you are looking for an affordable option or you are unable to have implants because of diabetics or bone loss, removable dentures provide you a full mouth solution.
If you have enough teeth to be an anchor around your missing teeth, you can fix the gaps with bridges.
MISSING TEETH SOLUTIONS
There are two options to fix the missing teeth:
Implants (Please see implant treatment page to find out more)
Implants are life time solution and would be preferable;
If you have enough bone level
If you have enough space between the teeth around the gap
If you don’t have diabetics
If you don't have anchor teeth for a bridge
Bridges are another option for missing gaps with the advantages below:
Can be done in one visit
You can see before and afters for bridges below;
Total cost depends on howmany crowns that will be placed on your bridge. Number of crowns that you need equals to the number of missing teeth and anchor teeth round the missing teeth. A Bridge includes 3 crowns for a single missing tooth and maximum 4-5 teeth for 2-3 missing teeth.
Ultra Transculent Multi Layered Zirconium Crowns: £275 per tooth (in cash £250)
Zirconium Crowns: £220 / per tooth (in cash £200)
Metal Fused Porcelain Crowns: £145 / per tooth (in cash £130)
The treatment takes around a week to complete; in other words, if we begin the procedure on Monday, it will usually be completed by the Friday or Saturday of the same week. Both of the procedures usually require between two to three visits.
Your temporary teeth will be fitted just after the file operation.
First appointment (Day 1): Filing down the tooth/teeth, which takes between two four hours, depending on condition of the teeth filed.
Second appointment (Day 5 or 6): Fitting the crown/veneer, which usually takes between one and two hours. However, if necessary, our dentist may schedule an additional appointment to complete the work.
Crowns can only be done over healthy or treated teeth. So if there is any gum disease problem, infected roots or decays these will be treated before the crowns are fitted. We will take an X-Ray and let you know about the supporting emergency treatments that you need. If you think that you would need additional treatments you should book 10 days to complete all of them in a visit.
Implant based All-on-4 treatment is the best way to fix an edentulous mouth but partial dentures are an alternatives options who can not able to have implant based treatments. Here you can see advantages of partial removable dentures:
A Natural Look & Longer Usage
Partial dentures can be fitted using metal hooks if required, offering the patient a natural smile. Modern dentures are both tougher and designed to last longer.
Just like natural teeth, dentures require routine care and maintenance. However, modern technology means they can be made from bacteria-resistant material, which reduces bacterial adhesion and reduces the risk of complications sometimes associated with free monomers.
Aesthetics & Function
Modern dentures can restore your smile and be an effective replacement for natural teeth, helping the patient enjoy not only all types of food but also clarity of speech.
Removable or partial dentures take 7-12 days to be done due to the type of denture. Please book a free consultation to find out exat treatment plan.
