At our Stirling dental practice, we're here to help you. We have several solutions for missing teeth.
We’re here to get you eating, speaking and smiling with confidence again. Conventional dentures remain the most affordable option for replacing several missing teeth. They continue to be a popular choice amongst patients.
Dentures are custom-made prosthetic devices consisting of artificial teeth. They are removable, providing you with convenience when it comes to eating and cleaning your mouth and your dentures. They also help restore the natural fullness surrounding your mouth that you may have lost due to your missing teeth. What’s more, modern-day dentures have an exceptionally natural look and feel.
Types of Dentures
The two most common types of dentures are full and partial dentures. The type of dentures best suited to you will depend on your needs, amount of teeth needing replacing and your budget.
Full dentures are used in cases when all your teeth on your upper and lower jaw need replacing. A full denture for your top teeth has a flesh-coloured base which lies against the roof of your mouth. A full denture for your bottom teeth is shaped like a horseshoe and supported by your gum line. Both are fully removable.
If you’re missing a section of teeth, partial dentures may be the right option for you. They are supported by a metal frame that attaches to your natural teeth. Your surrounding natural teeth may need to have crowns placed on them to provide anchors for your denture.

Our dentists take the time to get to know you and understand your smile goals, lifestyle and budget. After a thorough oral assessment and x-rays, your dentist can help you determine if dentures are the right option for you. Your dentist may advise you at this point that you need some extra dental work, such as the removal of damaged teeth, before proceeding.
Once you’re ready for your dentures, your dentist will take impressions of the soft and hard tissues in your mouth. The impressions are used to make a mould that forms the basis of the creation of your dentures.
Many other dental practices outsource the denture manufacturing process. At Hills Dental Group, we manufacture removable dentures on-site in our dental lab. Because of this, we can problem-solve, shade match and provide a premium service to our patients who need dentures.
Our team of skilled technicians can create beautiful dentures with high-quality materials. We can provide you with a final product that offers you superior comfort and a customised, natural look.
