Dentures at TC Smiles

You may feel like you are too shy to smile, speak to others and have given up eating your favourite foods. No matter if you have lost teeth from trauma, genetic causes or bacterial issues, we can restore your smile at TC Smiles. Our dentures are created in an Australian laboratory to replace your missing teeth.

We provide numerous denture options. To determine what’s best for you, you’ll need to come in for an initial consultation. We’ll be happy to discuss our dentures and what we recommend for you.

Immediate Dentures

As the name suggests, this temporary denture usually made of acrylic is often used directly after the extraction of teeth. It helps you heal after the removal of teeth, preserves gum and bone material and is easily adjustable to you. You’ll know how long it lasts and what to expect as time passes when our team details this option to you.

Partial Chrome Dentures

This prosthesis is created from a cobalt-chrome framework with acrylic teeth specifically placed in it. If you have some healthy teeth in your mouth, this denture may be perfect for you. It is sturdy, comfortable, hygienic and makes chewing easy. Though more expensive than other dentures, they are the preferred choice for people who want long-lasting dentures.

Complete Acrylic Dentures

If all of your teeth are gone, a complete acrylic denture will restore your smile. The gum and bone support the denture, and a strong seal ensures that the denture stays in place. We’ll design them carefully to make sure chewing and speech aren’t affected. To make sure your gums don’t erode, regular checkups and denture relines will be necessary.

Partial Acrylic Dentures

Made mostly of acrylic, this denture replaces some teeth that are missing. It is cost-effective and doesn’t take long to create, meaning you’ll be able to have your denture quickly. They can be easily modified though you may find they are bulkier and not as easily tolerated as partial chrome dentures.

Implant-Retained Dentures

If you would like an upgrade on a complete denture, implant-retained dentures give incredible stability. Dental implants are placed into the jaw. Your full acrylic denture can then clip on and off of the dental implants. Not everyone is a candidate for implants, but we’re happy to discuss whether it’s right for you.
