Dentures in Dublin
Dentures are artificial teeth and gums that are customised to your mouth and created by your dentists to replace missing natural teeth. Dentures can either be full or partial, meaning they can replace all teeth on either the top or bottom gum line, or just the few that are missing. Regardless of what kind of dentures you may need, they will be custom designed to fit your mouth, and aesthetically matched to your existing teeth.
Why would I need Dentures?
Dentures not only improve the appearance of a smile that has missing teeth, they also maintain the structure of the mouth by supporting the areas around the cheeks and lips. Dentures also enable you to eat foods that require chewing, enabling you to keep your diet the same and ensure that you are properly nourished. Dentures are also a viable solution to replace teeth that are causing serious pain and oral health issues, such as those with deteriorating roots or damage. Having dentures fitted means that troublesome teeth are removed from the mouth and replaced with a strong and natural looking alternative.
