What Are Dentures?

Whether you are considering getting dentures, already have them, or know someone with them, it’s very likely that you may have some questions about them.

Dentures are artificial teeth and gums that are formed to your mouth and created by your dentists to replace lost or removed natural teeth. Dentures can either be full or partial, meaning they can either replace all teeth on either the top or bottom gum line, or just a few that are missing. Regardless of what kind of dentures you may need, they will be custom designed to fit your mouth, and visually matched to your existing teeth.

In the past, the artificial teeth that make up dentures were made out of porcelain or plastic, but more modern dentures are generally made out of a hard resin. The materials used to make denture teeth are known to be more fragile than natural teeth and can easily chip or crack if dropped or otherwise uncared for. This material also wears down much quicker than natural teeth and thus must be replaced with a new set of dentures every five years or so.

EAB Denture Clinic in Ilford specialise in replacing missing teeth by means of various types of dentures, by providing custom made prosthesis in the hopes of restoring aesthetics and function for you. This can usually be accomplished within 1-5 working days.
