Missing teeth may interfere with normal speech, chewing and nutrition. When you have lost your natural teeth, you may require replacement in order to function normally. Our doctors at The George R. Owino & Associates Dental Centre will carry out a comprehensive evaluation of your condition and suggest a suitable solution for you.

Partial and Complete Dentures

These are removable dental appliances used to replace missing teeth. Partial dentures only fill the spaces of missing teeth while complete dentures are for patients who are missing all of their teeth.

Just because you may have lost your teeth due to age, accidents, illness, disease or decay, it doesn’t mean that you still can’t smile. At The George R. Owino & Associates Dental Centre we make exclusive, custom designed and individually crafted dentures for a remarkably natural look, fit and feel.

Your dentures will resemble your original teeth so closely that no one will guess they’re not real. You will be able to laugh, chew, swallow, speak and smile without experiencing any difficulty or discomfort. If you’re only missing some of your teeth, our doctors will design a partial denture that will seamlessly fill in the gaps between your remaining teeth.

Dentures will help keep your teeth and mouth in frame while giving dental support and functionality. And if your dentures break or get damaged, visit us for denture repair with our in-house technicians.

Dental Crowns

For some decayed, damaged, chipped or cracked teeth, fillings alone might not do the trick. A crown may be needed to restore the tooth to its original size and shape. Also known as a “cap”, a dental crown shields and strengthens the tooth by entirely covering it with a protective coating placed over the whole damaged tooth from the gum line.

While materials such as gold or acrylic resin can be used to manufacture crowns, many of our patients prefer porcelain or porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns. Our porcelain crowns are custom made to resemble your original tooth as closely as possible. And because porcelain tends to reflect light the way your teeth do, it offers the most natural appearance.

Dental Bridges

Bridges are also used to replace one or more missing teeth. Our doctors may recommend placing a bridge because gaps left by missing teeth eventually cause the remaining teeth to rotate or shift into empty spaces, resulting in a bad bite. The imbalance caused by missing teeth can also lead to gum disease.

At The George R. Owino & Associates Dental Centre, our bridges are custom designed to look, feel and function just like your real teeth, restoring both your bite and your appearance. By filling the hole between your remaining teeth, bridges prevent them from gradually drifting out of alignment. Unlike dentures, however, bridges cannot be removed. They are permanently and securely cemented into place, providing lasting support for the life of your smile.
