Tooth loss has consequences, including bite misalignment, tooth wear, and even the potential for future tooth fractures and cavities. Fortunately, your Katoomba dentist offers solutions.

If you have missing teeth, we always recommend tooth replacement to improve your bite and allow you to enjoy healthier and more diverse foods.

Dentures and Partial Dentures in Katoomba

We provide dentures and partial dentures to patients looking for a more traditional tooth replacement option.

Dentures are replacement teeth on an arch that fill in for total tooth loss. Partial dentures are similar but contain only the teeth needed to fill in the smile. Additionally, our dentures are always customised.

You can opt for removable dentures or an implant-supported option.

Dental Bridges Complete Your Smile

A dental bridge is a tooth or teeth situated between dental crowns. We cement the crowns over healthy teeth and allow the replacement teeth to complete your smile.

Your dental bridge is always customised—in colour and shape—to look like your natural teeth. And you can talk to your dentist about an implant-supported bridge as well.  

Dental Implants in Katoomba

A dental implant is often the first choice of dentists because it is almost like a natural tooth, replacing your crown and its root.

Additionally, dental implants have options, including:

  • Single dental implants—A dental crown supported by dental implants
  • Implant-supported dentures—A denture supported by dental implants
  • All-on-4—A low profile restoration supported by dental implants—ideal for people who do not want removable dentures

Learn Which Tooth Replacement Option Is Right for You

Your dentist provides an exam and talks to you about your smile objectives and budget. Then we work with you to achieve a predictable outcome.

If one option will not work for you, we can typically find something that will work. And we are always here to answer your questions.

In accordance with recent ADA recommendations, we are operating at Level 1 restrictions. We can continue seeing patients for all routine treatments, including checkups and cleans. We will continue to screen patients before seeing our dentists, and any patient that is suspected of having COVID-19 will not be able to be treated. If you have any questions, please call us.
