Denture Services Brisbane
We offer a comprehensive range of dental services and are dedicated to providing quality and aesthetic dentures to our patients. As dentists, it’s our responsibility to identify the need for dentures and determine the best solution to restore your smile.
What Are Dentures?
Commonly known as false teeth, dentures are prosthetic replacements for missing teeth. They are custom-designed to fit snugly inside your mouth and fill gaps, allowing you to eat, speak normally, and enjoy the confidence that comes with a perfect smile.
What Types Of Dentures Are Available?
Two main types of dentures are available: complete and partial.
Complete dentures are needed when all natural teeth are missing. Complete dentures rest on the gums, and underlying jawbone, and the result is a fully functional and aesthetically pleasing set of teeth. The process involves thoroughly examining your oral health, followed by constructing and fitting a complete set of dentures.
Partial dentures can be used when some natural teeth still exist. They consist of artificial teeth being attached to a metal or plastic framework that clasps onto the remaining natural teeth for support and stability.
At The Aesthetic Smile Collective, we provide a thorough examination, followed by the design and fitting of partial dentures to fill in the gaps left by missing teeth. The result is a restored smile that blends seamlessly with natural teeth.
What Are The Signs That I Need Dentures?
The need for dentures can arise from various dental issues. Determining if you need dentures involves a thorough examination of your oral health. Common signs and symptoms include:
- Loose or shifting teeth
- Missing teeth
- Chronic toothache
- Difficulty chewing or speaking
- Inflamed or bleeding gums
How Much Do Dentures Cost?

How Long Does It Take To Adjust To Wearing Dentures?

Can I Enjoy My Regular Diet With Dentures?
While dentures do require some adjustments, it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your favourite foods. It’s all about understanding the limitations and making necessary adjustments. We’re here to help you navigate this change and make your denture-wearing experience as comfortable as possible.
