Dentures in Mount Waverley, VIC
Dentures are a time-tested solution to tooth loss in Mount Waverley, VIC and around the world. Dentures are practical, affordable and they are designed to restore smiles—and have been doing so for decades.
Removable dentures and removable partial dentures restore your smile whether you have full tooth loss or partial tooth loss, respectively.
A full denture is a full set of artificial teeth on an acrylic base that relies on suction to stay in place.
A partial denture may be an option to replace missing teeth where some healthy natural teeth remain. Artificial teeth sit on an acrylic or metallic framework which clips on to healthy teeth.

The first step is a dental exam with Dr Austin Rhee or Dr William Huynh. Your Mount Waverley dentist assesses your oral health to make sure dentures are the right option to restore your smile. This is also a great time for you to ask questions or share any concerns about dentures, the denture process, or to explore other tooth-replacement options.
If you’re a good candidate for dentures, the next step is customising this tooth-replacement option. Your Mount Waverley, VIC dentist will take an impression of your mouth and use the mould to create a custom denture or partial denture that fits the unique contours of your mouth.
When you try on your dentures, your dentist will make final adjustments and offer tips to help you make the most out of your new smile. At Mount Waverley Smiles, we want you to be happy and confident in your new smile. We want you to enjoy your dentures and your favourite foods once more.
Implant-Retained Dentures in Mount Waverley, VIC
Over time, without the support of tooth roots, your jawbone shrinks. Eventually, removable dentures loosen and don’t fit as well as they did in the beginning. When this happens, patients rely on adhesives, relines or a new set of dentures to prevent slippage. Slippage means your denture moves when you speak, which can create embarrassing situations.
With implant-supported dentures in Mount Waverley, VIC, you don’t have to worry about any of these issues.
Implant-supported dentures rely on dental implant posts to affix your denture to your gum.
Implant-supported dentures offer a longer-lasting tooth replacement option and eliminate the need for adhesives.
