We provide $0 Interest-Free payment options and treatment plans to best suit you to accommodate the patient. Patients also have the Payment option of using their Superannuation with Supercare.
Missing Teeth Option treatments with Dental Implants
Dental implants can be singular or multiple teeth, otherwise known as bridges. A porcelain crown is specifically shaped and coloured to match your existing teeth.
Although there is a more significant outlay in costs, patients often prefer dental implants since implant teeth are permanent.
Therefore implants feel more solidified like natural teeth, unlike removable dentures, which can move during speech or eating if not inserted correctly.
At Amazing Smiles Cosmetic Dental, we’re proud that our dental implant parts are digitally designed and made in Australia.

Removable Partial Dentures
Removable Partial Dentures are constructed from either acrylic/plastic, cobalt chrome and new flexible plastic called valplast. Partial denture are used when there are a few missing teeth in the jaw.
Partial dentures, otherwise known as removable dentures or multiple teeth bridge are replacement teeth that designed and attached to an artificial pink gum base. The framework of the structure can be is held together by acrylic or metal compounds. Partial dentures are held in place between natural existing teeth by ‘clasps’. In some cases crowns or additional composite resin may be used on neighboring teeth to improve aesthetics and fitting.
Full Dentures can be either be for the upper or lower jaw. The gold standard for lower dentures these days is to have 2 implants in the canine region to hold the denture in place. This is an advantage as it will hold the jaw bone and stops the bone from shrinking. Often old age patient that have ill fitting dentures will greatly improve their chewing and speech if this procedure is done.
Full acrylic dentures, are a cost effective solution for those missing a substantial amount of teeth. Full dentures are usually recommended to patients requiring a full replacement row of teeth. Being made entirely of acrylic they are much larger than metal or flexible dentures and can at times be obtrusive.
Hybrid Implants – Implant Supported Dentures
Hybrid Implants are the best method of missing teeth treatment. The denture is held securely by more than 2 surgically inserted implants. If a full row is required this is known as an All-on-4 implant or All-on-6 denture to cover an entire row of missing teeth. The amount of implants recommended is determined by gum health.
Permanent implant dentures provide clearer speech and functionality since they do not move. They look and feel just like natural teeth. There is no risk to them falling out. Dentures are made from various materials including; acrylic, nylon, porcelain, resin, or metal. These implants can be staged for later when the patient can afford a fixed porcelain bridge.
