No need to go without!

There are three commonly used replacement options  for missing teeth:

  • Dental implants are a superior, long lasting replacement option that has the advantage of preserving bone.
  • Removable Dentures are an affordable option where multiple teeth are missing
  • Fixed bridges are a connected unit of crowns so are a good option in cases where the adjacent teeth require crowns

Dental Implants

Dental implants work by screwing a metal fixture into the jawbone, which is connected via a device called an abutement to a porcelain crown. The crown mimics the appearance of real teeth and will last a lifetime. The procedure involves general anaesthetic and will leave your smile looking natural where teeth were missing before.

Dental Implants


Dentures are false teeth. It is sometimes necessary to get a full or part denture to replace damaged or missing teeth. Dentures are custom-made to fit your mouth. This means you will need to visit your dentist several times before the denture is finished – to make sure that accurate measurements of your mouth are taken and that the denture fits well.

Full and Part Dentures


A dental bridge is a prosthetic device used to fill a gap created by one or more missing teeth. It is mounted onto remaining teeth or implants and glued into shape with dental cement. Dental bridges fill the gaps in your teeth to create a full and natural-looking smile. Dental bridges are often made from porcelain, however other materials can be used.
