While not the right solution for every patient, dentures are still a viable and popular option for many, providing a convenient and trusted dental solution for replacing missing teeth.
Dentures are an excellent solution for replacing multiple missing teeth that are spread out across the mouth. Unlike dental bridges that only fill one gap, dentures can conveniently fill multiple gaps left by missing teeth.
In addition, dentures do not require invasive surgery and are far more cost-effective than dental implants, with basic dentures being fully available on the NHS.
Dentures are removable appliances used to replace missing teeth. Although commonly thought of as a solution for older patients, modern dentures are sleek, comfortable and discreet, making them an attractive solution for patients of all ages suffering from missing teeth.
Dentures can be made from various materials including nylon, acrylic or metal. They are convenient, durable and help patients restore confidence in their smiles. In general, dentures should be worn throughout the day and then removed at night to relieve pressure on your gums.
When it comes to types of dentures, patients have the options of:
A partial denture – used to replace just a few missing teeth
Complete dentures – used to replace a whole arch
Although other tooth replacement procedures such as dental implants and dental bridges tend to get more attention, dentures are still an excellent solution for replacing missing teeth.
Cosmetic dentures have a range of advantages to them, such as:
Can replace multiple missing teeth at once
Can be used in conjunction with dental implants
Custom made to comfortably fit your mouth
Helps patient eat and chew as normal
Creates a full smile to give back confidence to the patient
At the Stuart Steven Dental Practice in Edinburgh, we offer both temporary and permanent dentures. Whether it’s to last for the rest of your lifetime or to fill the gaps whilst you wait for another type of cosmetic surgery, our denture procedure is quick, affordable and highly effective.
Give us a call on 0131 229 7899 to enquire further.
There are a few different options when it comes to receiving dentures at our Edinburgh dental practice:
Dentures on the NHS: These can either be partial or full dentures and can be made from acrylic or chrome.
Private dentures: We offer dentures as a private treatment option that are more durable and aesthetically pleasing. These dentures are made from superior-quality materials.
Dentures secured in place with dental implants: These are called implant retained dentures and are fixed to the implants in your mouth, which means they are more secure and allow you to experience almost normal functionality whilst replacing multiple gaps left by missing or removed teeth.
Immediate dentures can be made for patients who require a tooth extraction and want to fill the space straight away.
For patients that are having permanent dentures fitted, they will have four different appointments that align with the four stages that are needed for making dentures. Each appointment will generally be about ten days apart due to the laboratory work involved.

Been attending Stuart's practice since his days in Chester Street. Excellent service and staff always very friendly. I've just completed a course of implant work (seven in all) and the procedure, treatment and aftercare were second to none, but glad it's all over lol. Looking forward to returning to 6 monthly check ups. Thanks again to Stuart and the Team.
Never liked going too the dentist but now it's a breeze , professional and friendly . Had 5 teeth out never felt a thing . Robbie Rocks !!!!
Been with these guys 7 years from the staff to the reminder texts, this is a fantastic practice
I recently joined Stuart's practice in May and can honestly say that I am extremely impressed! The whole team are friendly, professional, knowledgeable and have all the modern equipment. Stuart carried out some cosmetic work on my front teeth including a front crown and white filling to close the gap that had gradually developed over the years. I could not have expected a better result! I have my smile back, which to me is priceless. Massive thanks to Stuart (and the team) for doing such a great job. Lisa-Ann
I have to say that after 10 days the implant bridge is a great success. It is fabulous to be without the denture.
I am delighted with the whole treatment. I was made fully aware of all the options for my mouth and the costs involved with detailed explanations of all the stages.
A big thank you to all.
