Having missing teeth can severely affect your confidence and way of life. If you find yourself covering up your mouth when laughing or talking to people, refusing to smile in photos and even getting frustrated when eating because it is more difficult, we can help rid you of this discomfort. Our professionally trained dentists here at Burneston Dental can carry out a number of procedures to replace missing teeth and will have you back at full confidence in no time.
Dentures are made of either metal or acrylic and can be used to replace one, several or even all of your teeth. As well as providing natural looking dentures that enable you to eat and speak properly, they look great and can also be removed easily when they need to be. Each denture is custom made to your requirements, guaranteeing that you feel happy and confident.
Bridges are fixed to the teeth/tooth adjacent to the gap caused by any missing teeth. Unlike dentures, they are a permanent feature and therefore you don’t have to worry about removing them whenever you eat. Typically made from porcelain, gold, alloy or a combination of these materials, our high quality bridges aim to give you the best possible appearance and function so they feel natural and secure.
We are continuously seeing advancements in dental procedures and here at Burneston we pride ourselves on the fact that our dentists are always at the forefront of this technology. Dental implants are the newest way to replace missing teeth and as they are the closest you can get to having a natural tooth, it is an excellent way to guarantee a natural smile once again. Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, several teeth, to support a bridge or even support a denture – thereby giving you the ultimate in comfort and confidence.
