Dentures Bromley

Looking for Dentures in Bromley

Dentures are a well-proven and reliable solution for replacing missing teeth and restoring a beautiful smile.

At Shmile Dentist Bromley, we understand the significant impact missing teeth can have on your confidence and overall well-being. Our experienced dentists will work closely with you to find the denture solution that best suits your needs.

We start with a personalised free consultation towards achieving a confident smile with dentures.

During your consultation, our dentist will assess your oral health, the number of missing teeth, jawbone health, and your specific preferences.

Don't Let Missing Teeth Hold You Back

Common denture types we offer:

Full Dentures: These replace all your upper or lower teeth (or both) and are ideal for patients with no remaining natural teeth in a specific arch. Full dentures are made from a gum-coloured acrylic base that supports a set of custom-crafted porcelain or acrylic teeth. They improve speech and eating abilities, restore facial structure, and boost confidence.

Partial Dentures: Designed for individuals with some remaining natural teeth, partials fill gaps and prevent surrounding teeth from shifting. Crafted from a lightweight metal framework with replacement teeth attached, partials are secured by clasps that fit around your natural teeth. Partial dentures offer a comfortable and discreet solution for those with several missing teeth.

Flexible Dentures: These dentures are made from a thin and flexible thermoplastic material, making them particularly comfortable for patients with sensitive gums or those prone to breakage with traditional acrylic dentures. Flexible dentures conform well to the gum tissue and may require minimal adjustments. However, they might not be as durable as other types and may not be suitable for all bite patterns.

The Denture Procedure at Shmile Dentist Bromley

Getting dentures typically involves several appointments at Shmile Dentist Bromley:

  1. Initial Consultation and Examination: During this visit, with our dentist you will discuss your denture needs and expectations and provide and oral examination and discuss your denture options.
  2. Tooth Extractions (if necessary): If you have remaining teeth that need to be removed to make way for dentures, this will be carried out at a separate appointment. We will ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.
  3. Taking Impressions: Once any extractions have healed,  we will take impressions of your gums and jawbone in preparation for your custom-fit denture.
  4. Bite Registration: This step determines how your upper and lower jaws come together when you bite. The bite registration will ensure your dentures function properly for speaking and chewing.
  5. Trying In Dentures: At this stage, you will try in a wax model of your dentures to assess the fit, colour, and aesthetics. This allows us to make adjustments before your final denture is created.
  6. Fitting and Adjustments: Your permanent dentures will be ready for placement at a follow-up appointment. Your Shmile dentist will ensure they fit properly and make any minor adjustments for optimal comfort and function.
  7. Aftercare and Regular Checkups: Following your denture placement, we will provide you with detailed instructions on denture care and maintenance. Regular dental checkups are essential to ensure your dentures continue to fit properly and to monitor your oral health.
