Cosmetic Reconstructive Dentistry can help patients with missing teeth in the Putney area

Are you embarrassed by missing teeth in your smile? Are you having difficulty chewing and speaking properly with the gaps in your mouth? Do you wish you could have a beautiful and fully functional set of teeth again? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may be a candidate for cosmetic reconstructive dentistry. At Gentle Dental Putney, we offer our patients several options to replace missing teeth and restore smiles.

The three main options for missing teeth are: dentures, crowns and bridges, or dental implants. Let’s take a look at the difference between the three and why you would choose one option over another.


Dentures are designed to mimic the look of natural teeth and provide a solid restoration for patients who are missing several or all of their teeth. There are two types of dentures: partial and complete. Partial dentures are ideal for patients who only have a few gaps from missing teeth. They are very similar to retainers and composed of false teeth in a gum coloured base that you can snap in and out of your mouth. Full dentures are ideal for replacing an entire arch of teeth. They can be kept in the mouth with special adhesives or with dental implants.

Crowns and Bridges

If you have one damaged or severely decayed tooth, you may benefit from a ceramic crown. At Gentle Dental Putney, we fabricate our crowns in-house with a CEREC machine to provide quick restorations.

For patients who have gaps between natural teeth, bridges can be an excellent solution. Bridges use the existing teeth as anchors for support. The bridge has an artificial tooth attached to it that fills in the gap left behind from missing teeth.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are one of the most popular cosmetic reconstruction services that we offer to our patients. Implants involve the use of surgically implanted titanium rods that act as a stable tooth root for a restoration. Implants can be covered with crowns or dentures to complete the restoration.

Missing teeth can be a problem for many, but fortunately, you have options when it comes to restoring functionality and beauty to your smile. To learn more about our options for cosmetic reconstructive dentistry, call us at 0208 780 2226 and schedule a consultation.
