A denture replaces natural teeth and provides support for the cheeks and lips. Most dentures are made of acrylic, and the teeth are made of plastic or porcelain. Dr. Mukanga ensures that your dentures are made with great precision and in a short amount of time.
Missing teeth can be replaced by using adjacent teeth as a support for a bridge. Healthy teeth from either side of the gap or in some cases just from one side of the gap are used to support a false tooth, which fills the gap. The bridge is then cemented.
A bridge is ideal for closing smaller gaps in the dentition, eliminating the need for dentures.
