They are designed to be fit in with your natural teeth and are the dental procedure that offer the closest option to restoring your own natural teeth. You may have lost or damaged teeth due to previous poor dental care or dental treatment. Alternatively you may be looking for a more permanent alternative or replacement to dentures.
