Partial, Complete & Immediate Dentures
Partial and complete cosmetic dentures are designed for patients who have lost some or all of their teeth due to dental hygiene issues, sports-related injuries, chronic illness, or facial trauma.
Dr. Kennedy specialises in crafting and fitting dentures. She has a master’s degree in prosthetic dentistry, and she has spent many years working with a range of patients and their unique problems—from the simple and straightforward to those deemed difficult and even “untreatable.”
Cosmetic dentures can be made from acrylic or metal, depending on your individual circumstances, and Dr. Kennedy determines which is more appropriate for you after a detailed examination including x-rays and a bite assessment.
While individual circumstances and results vary, partial and complete cosmetic dentures can give you beautiful, confidence-boosting results for years to come. To find out if they’re right for you, please contact us for an assessment.

If you need several or all teeth extracted, an immediate denture can be placed straight after extractions. All the necessary dental work will be carried out before the teeth are removed and on the day of the extraction appointment, the denture will be ready and fitted.
This has several advantages: The denture acts as a wound coverage and you will be able to meet people without being embarrassed and go home with your new dentures on the same day. Over time , the area where the teeth were extracted will undergo changes and the denture will need to be relined. We take care of all the procedures , treatment planning, extractions and dentures. All procedures will be carried out by Dr.Kennedy in the clinic. To have present teeth extracted will incur an additional fee.
We also offer “Conscious sedation” (Twilight Anaesthesia) for the extraction phase of the immediate denture treatment.
IT WILL HELP YOU RELAX COMPLETELY AND IT WILL STOP ANY MINOR PAIN.
YOU CAN RECOVER QUICKLY AND RETURN TO YOUR EVERYDAY ACTIVITIES SOON AFTER THE PROCEDURE.
THIS WILL BE ADMINISTERED BY DR. ROBERT GILMOUR IN THE CLINIC.
