Dentures are a removable prosthetic used to replace missing teeth and gums. There are two kinds of dentures – partial and complete. Partial dentures are used to replace a few missing teeth, while complete dentures are used to replace an entire set.
Dentures can be made from a range of materials and are custom designed to match your natural gums and teeth. There are several steps to molding and designing your dentures, depending on what type you require. Dentures initially take some getting used to, but with time and practice, they’ll provide you with a natural looking smile and allow you to eat and speak normally. If you’re thinking about denture teeth treatment, give the team at Studio Smiles a call. Our highly qualified team will invest their time into you, making sure you get the best possible outcome.

As people age, their teeth can become loose and eventually fall out. This process is known as tooth decay, and it is a common problem among older adults. In addition to causing tooth loss, decay can also lead to other oral health problems, such as gum disease and infections.
Dentures are a type of dental prosthesis that can replace missing teeth and restore the function of the mouth. They are typically made of artificial materials, such as porcelain or plastic, and are custom-fitted to the patient’s mouth.
Dentures can be either partial or complete, and they are usually removable for cleaning. Patients who have lost all of their natural teeth may require complete dentures, while those who still have some healthy teeth may only need partial dentures. Some patients may also be candidates for implant-supported dentures, which are anchored in place by titanium screws. To determine whether dentures are right for you, schedule a consultation with your dentist.

Dentures are removable prosthetics used to replace missing teeth and gums. Dentures can either be partial, only replacing certain teeth or complete, replacing an entire set of teeth. They are a pain-free, aesthetically pleasing treatment to combat any missing teeth.
Complete dentures can be immediate or conventional. Immediate dentures are made straight after you have had teeth removed and before your gums have healed. They provide you with a natural smile immediately, however, require realignment and adjusting as your gums gradually heal.
Conventional dentures are molded several weeks after your teeth have been removed, when the gums have completely healed. While you might need to live with missing teeth in the interim, conventional dentures will generally fit better in the mouth.
When it comes to dentures, we’ve invested heavily in 3D technology, allowing us to have complete accuracy with your treatment so you don’t need to worry about ill-fitting prosthesis.
Dentures may be necessary if you have lost a significant number or all your teeth. When we lose our teeth, we have a higher risk of gum disease, tooth decay, injury, developing a saggy face and a whole lot more. Book an appointment with Studio Smiles today.
Partial dentures usually consist of natural looking, false teeth that are attached to a gum-coloured base. This then fits over the existing teeth. Partial dentures can sometimes be connected with a metal framework to hold them in place.
Full dentures are an entire set of false teeth in a gum-coloured base that fit over your gum line. They can be held in place with suction or with an oral adhesive if required. Book an appointment today, and smile with confidence.
In the days after receiving your denture teeth, you may be asked to wear them 24/7 (even while you sleep). This helps us identify whether there are any specific spots in the dentures that need adjustment. After this initial period, you’ll be able to remove your denture teeth at night before going to sleep. This process will allow your gums to rest and will encourage regular stimulation and cleaning by your tongue and saliva.
The steps to designing and creating your unique dentures generally depend on the type of dentures you require. Immediate dentures can be molded for you on the same day your teeth are removed whereas conventional dentures can take up to 2-3 weeks, requiring a few appointments in between.
Creating your unique denture teeth brings us joy when we know it’s life-changing for you. We measure and make an impression of your jaw, create a replica model for you to trial to make sure it’s accurate and comfortable, and cast the final result. Denture teeth are typically made from a resin material or porcelain (ceramic). Denture teeth are designed to look similar to your natural teeth. This means that if you decide to keep it on the hush, no one will notice! Transform your smile. Book an appointment today.
Maintaining oral hygiene is vital to the longevity of your denture teeth.
Here are a few ways you can do this:
At first, dentures can certainly affect the way you speak. You may find that you have some difficulty enunciating certain words, however with time and practice, you’ll adjust to speaking naturally with your dentures and soon become completely comfortable.
Dentures last 7-10 years on average before requiring replacement. Over time, dentures will need to be relined, rebased or replaced due to wear or natural changes to the face, jaw and gums. The longevity of your dentures will depend on the denture treatment you require and the materials used. It’s important to take care of your dentures by brushing them daily. Dropping them can lead to further damage so it’s best to avoid this. Transform your smile. Book an appointment today.
Not necessarily. There are several alternatives to dentures, including dental implants and dental bridges. Dental implants are a popular option to replace missing teeth as they’re permanent. However, it’s important to have healthy gums and a healthy jaw bone, to proceed with this treatment. Learn more about dental implants here.
Here at Studio Smiles, we take pride in our emphasis on pain-free dentistry. We understand that going to the dentist can be daunting and that there are certain procedures you may find uncomfortable, so we use the latest techniques and technology to make you feel as comfortable as we possibly can. We also offer oral and IV sedation to take the edge off where needed, which means you can wake up to the smile of your dreams without remembering a thing! Book an appointment today.
Costs will vary depending on the individual and the treatment necessary. We believe in a transparent approach, so we make it a rule to provide all relevant treatment options and costs, including the advantages and disadvantages where relevant. This is an important part of our informed consent process. Patients may choose to opt for one of our interest-free payment plans to have their smile transformed now, while having the flexibility to pay later on their own terms. Payment plans can help alleviate the financial barriers to a healthy mouth. We want to make sure you feel completely comfortable with the next steps throughout your entire journey.

Dentures are one of the most common dental prosthetics, and millions of people around the world wear them. But who makes dentures? The short answer is that dentists do. However, the process of making dentures is actually quite complex and requires the skills of a number of different professionals.
First, a dental technician will take an impression of the patient’s mouth. This impression will be used to create a model of the teeth, which will be used to design the dentures. Once the design is complete, the dentures will be sent to a dental lab, where they will be handmade by skilled technicians. Finally, the dentures will be returned to the dentist, who will fit them to the patient’s mouth.
Dentures are a common type of dental prosthetic that can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. While dentures are made to resemble natural teeth, they require some special care in order to keep them clean and free of odours. Here are a few tips for taking care of your dentures:
Dentures are artificial teeth that are used to replace missing or damaged teeth. They are usually made out of porcelain, plastic, or metal. Porcelain and plastic dentures look more natural than metal ones, but they can be more fragile. Metal dentures are stronger and less likely to break, but they can be less comfortable to wear. Dentures are held in place by suction or by bonding them to the gums. When suction is used, the denture must be fitted perfectly so that it does not slip. If bonding is used, a special adhesive
is used to hold the denture in place. Dentures can be used to replace all of the teeth, or just some of them. Complete dentures are usually worn by people who have lost all of their teeth, while partial dentures are worn by people who still have some natural teeth remaining.
The answer to this question depends on a few factors, including the type of dentures you are getting and the condition of your mouth. For instance, if you are getting full dentures, it will take longer than if you are getting partial dentures.
Additionally, if you have any existing teeth that need to be removed, this will also add to the timeframe. In general, however, you can expect the process of making dentures to take several weeks from start to finish. The first step is to take impressions of your mouth, which will be used to create a model of your teeth.
Next, the model is used to create a wax prototype of your dentures. Once you have approved the design, the dentures are then cast in resin and polished. Finally, the dentures are fitted and adjusted to ensure a comfortable and secure fit. Though the process may seem lengthy, you will be able to enjoy the benefits of your new dentures for many years to come.
We strive to establish rapport and trust to help you feel completely confident on your smile transformation journey.

Dr. Sabrina Escuza
Dr. Sabrina Escuza takes great pride in providing a calm environment where patients feel safe to express their needs, and comfortable to ask questions. Empowering you to take control of your oral health journey is her number one priority. She will thoroughly explain your conditions, how they came to be, and what treatment options are available to meet your health or aesthetic goals. Each patient is unique, and she will strategically tie all the aspects of dentistry into an individual journey that will work best for you. It doesn’t matter if it’s a check up, or a complete change that you’re seeking – she will look after you.
Florida, USA is where home is for Dr. Sabrina. She received her Bachelor of Science in Biology at the University of Florida (Go Gators!), and her Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of Melbourne, where she graduated with honours and an achievement award from the prestigious Delta Sigma Delta dental fraternity. Eight years of uni has made her addicted to education – she is fluent in Spanish, has studied philosophy and French, and now spends her free time learning about the most modern dental treatment modalities through continued professional development courses.
Dr. Sabrina finds great joy in the intersections of dentistry – healthcare and artistry, function/aesthetics and mental health, communication and comfort. She is meticulous with the design of a smile, considering everything from the physics of your bite to the color of the porcelain. One of her favorite areas is where surgery meets prosthetics – sometimes losing a very broken down tooth means creating a healthy space for a beautiful replacement that will get you eating without pain and smiling without shame.
Apart from dentistry, Sabrina (not so) secretly thinks she is a master chef, and can be found trying to feed her friends the excessive amount of food she cooks. She loves music, a good picnic in the sun, and her dog, Nile.
