Affordable Solutions for Fake Teeth

Fake teeth - What are the options for replacing multiple missing teeth in your smile? Do you feel resigned to the fact you’ll need to wear old fashioned partial dentures? We’ll go through the fake teeth options available and discuss some perhaps surprising and definitely more affordable alternatives.

Dental options

Your dental professional will provide you with three main options. You will need to check carefully if your insurance will cover these, as fake teeth are often considered a cosmetic requirement only.

  • Implants.
  • Fixed Bridges.
  • Removable Partial Dentures.

Let’s start with the most invasive - dental implants. This surgery involves the gum and jaw bone being drilled in to and a metal rod with a screw attached placed in the open hole. The metal rod needs to then be given time to fuse with your jawbone, before a replacement tooth is screwed in to place. An option not for the faint hearted!

Fixed bridges essentially allow fake teeth to attach to adjacent existing teeth to hold them in place. Therefore, adjacent teeth must be in healthy condition.

Partial dentures are a common solution. They are removable and if you want it to cover upper missing teeth they cover the palette (roof of your mouth) with a gum-like plastic. This is the reason many people are put off by partial dentures, and they can make eating and drinking else enjoyable.

Fake teeth cost

Fake teeth using any of the above solutions with your dentist can cost up to

£10,000 and in many cases up to £20,000 depending on how many teeth you need to replace.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between fake teeth and dentures?

False teeth is simply an umbrella term for natural teeth alternatives like veneers, crowns, implants and dentures. 

Dentures specifically are prosthetic appliances that fix and disguise tooth decay, periodontal conditions and missing teeth. Giving extra structure to the mouth, they can reduce the facial muscles from sagging, creating a much healthier, more youthful face. 

The downside? Usually made from acrylic resin or porcelain, dentures are pretty expensive. 

Other forms of fake teeth are clip-on veneers. Available right here at instasmile, this is a much more affordable alternative to dentures, crowns, implants and veneers, perfecting both the damaged/missing tooth and the surrounding ones.

How safe are fake teeth?

False teeth methods are incredibly safe to install in the UK, with each and every method being tested to medical-grade standards. 

However, false teeth can wear down over time, with eating and more so if you grind your teeth. This weakened structure can lead to cracks, chips and breaks, causing damage to the natural teeth and gums if not replaced or fixed. 

instasmile is a far better option, as they are much more durable. With a clip-on veneer, you can eat, drink, smile and talk without worry.

How can I maintain fake teeth?

Similarly to your natural teeth, false teeth maintenance involves brushing, flossing and visiting your dentist regularly. 

By keeping the false tooth/teeth and the surrounding areas clean, they’re more likely to last longer. 

However, depending on what false teeth option you choose, you might have to change your diet slightly to prevent damage. Some with false teeth often find they suffer from sensitivity due to the natural tooth and enamel being shaved down. 

instasmile veneers offer a comfortable and durable alternative that doesn’t cause any damage to what’s already there. And, they’re easy to maintain! 

All you need to do is brush off any food debris from the day with warm water and a soft-bristled brush at the end of the day. Then, use denture tablets twice a week to remove any unseen bacteria.
