If you’re living with one or more missing teeth, this can damage your self-confidence and make you smile less — or not at all. Tooth loss can also cause difficulties speaking, pain while eating, and bone loss, which can lead to unflattering facial changes. Dentures are a time-tested and cost-effective way to enhance your smile aesthetics and function. Although the word “dentures” may evoke a memory of your grandparents’ false teeth sitting in a cup on their nightstand, modern dentures have come a long way, thanks to advances in dental technology. At ReNew Dental Care, our high-quality yet affordable dentures in Hamilton, Bermuda provide a natural-feeling experience when you talk, smile and eat. We’re in-network with three major Bermuda insurance companies to help make your new smile more affordable. Whether you choose partials or complete dentures, we’re committed to giving you a reason to smile again!
While nothing replaces your own teeth in terms of durability and stability, the right dentures can help restore your smile function and appearance. Newer and stronger materials, better molding and lifelike colouring and texture have made today’s dentures far more attractive and comfortable than you might imagine. While partial and complete dentures are removable for easy cleaning, ongoing bone loss can cause dentures to not fit well, which may lead to discomfort. As such, denture revisions or replacements are required about every five years.
If you have lost most or all of your teeth, you’re likely an ideal candidate for complete dentures. Complete dentures are designed to replace an entire arch of missing or failing teeth. They’re typically made of acrylic resin, polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) or porcelain, and rely on natural suction or adhesives to stay in place. Implant supported dentures are a more expensive and permanent full mouth solution, which rely on strategically placed dental implants for added support and stability.
A partial denture fills in the spaces created by missing teeth and prevents other teeth from shifting. Removable partial dentures in Hamilton, Bermuda consist of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored base. These are connected by a metal framework and attach securely to your remaining teeth with metal clasps.
Advanced digital imaging enables our team to map out the topography of your gums and take a series of impressions of your jaw ridge and oral tissues. These impressions ensure your new dentures fit snugly and provide a comfortable bite. Upon completion of this phase, we share these details with a specialized dental lab. The incredibly detailed and exacting process involves a highly skilled dental lab technician carefully designing and creating dentures that look and feel like your natural teeth and gums. During this process, we may ask you to return to our office for a wax try-in to verify a proper fit. After we receive your customized dentures, you’ll return to our office for your final fitting, and leave with a beautifully complete, healthier and youthful smile!
Dentures have a learning curve as you adjust to wearing your new teeth, but you’ll become used to them in just a few weeks. You’ll then experience the benefits of our modern dentures, including:
