Dentures vs Implants vs Bridges

The main difference between a denture, implant and bridge is that a denture is a removable appliance to replace missing teeth and an implant or bridge is fixed in place.

A bridge is where a false porcelain tooth is fixed in place to your natural teeth to replace the missing tooth or teeth. In many cases, the natural tooth will need some reduction to make space for the replacement tooth.

Dental implants are artificial replacements for your tooth roots that are placed within the bone of your jaw to help support an artificial tooth or appliance placed on top. Dental implants require no reduction of the surrounding teeth to replace the missing tooth.

26 years ago I had a car accident that left me with nerve damage to my face, damaged my gums and teeth. After years of bad dentistry I eventually took the plunge to go and see John and his team to see what could be done. I walked in, ashamed of my teeth and literally burst into tears. After an informative conversation, extractions and denture was suggested. I felt comfortable and confident throughout each process on my journey. Today I had my final fitting. At first I was taken aback by how different I looked and John explained the what, the whys and the whole picture. I walked out of there with a whole new me not just a new smile. I couldn't thank them enough. He said it would take a few days for me to get used to them and for once he was wrong. It took me an hour. What they didnt see was when I sat in the car and burst into tears, this time with tears of joy and not tears of shame. I cannot praise the team enough for the way they support you through the whole process. John and Mel, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Anyone who is thinking of having dentures then this is the only place to go, you will not be disappointed.

The staff are absolutely great, the aftercare was fantastic, when my extractions were done the team contacted me to see how I was doing. Before I visited elite dentures I was unhappy with my smile, since receiving my dentire I haven't stopped smiling. I've regsisterd with the dentist that they work with for further treatment which I feel really excited to be finally on the right track. Would highly recommend John and his team

I had a Denture from you about 12 months ago and it's been marvelous. Since receiving the denture I unfortunately lost a few more teeth. I contacted your reception team and I was booked with John, free of charge. I was told I had some gum shrinkage following the loss of the natural teeth, which is why it was loose. John added the missing teeth on my denture and did something called a relign. It now fits like it was new. I am so happy with the result and the continued care that I received from everyone. I can't thank you all enough. Ivo

  • John Wedgwood

    I qualified as a dental technician in 2001 and went on to further my career at the Royal College of Edinburgh where I later qualified as a clinical dental technician. Being a dental laboratory owner for the past 11 years and working in the dental field for 22 years has given me a broad experience. I am passionate about excellent dental impressions and high quality dentures; I have invested in the most innovative technology to create various levels of replacement teeth. I also work closely with implantologists restoring implants and offering permanent fixed solutions to missing teeth. I find nothing more satisfying than restoring a patients smile and function with the highest quality prosthodontics.

    The surgery is easy to get to on foot and there are safe crossings over very busy roads in the area making getting there on foot very safe. There is also free parking at the back of the building, and on the side street at the front of it with no time penalties.
    The dental surgery is located on the first floor, above the general surgery. There a small but sufficient combined waiting room and reception desk where Deb greets you. She's very efficient, very kind and gets things done!

    … More the first dentist I've seen in 15 years (the last one was terrible hence the hesitation to see another dentist). I was very impressed with his skill and pragmatism in assessing my dental condition, and allowing me to talk about my concerns and discuss my priorities.
    After many X-rays, a bit of healthy discussion between him and his lovely assistant (who's name escapes me),
    he has helped me develop a full treatment plan, with fixed costs and no nasty surprises. I have signed up for this and my first treatment is exactly a week from when this was written.
    I shouldn't say this about going to the dentist, but I'm actually looking forward to seeing how the treatment goes in the coming weeks.

    The Vallance Dental center, we're (my family) extremely happy with their services. The place is remarkably neat and clean, the service people are extremely friendly and helpful. Our dentist, Dr. Darren Wilkinson, whom my whole family has been visiting, is just outstanding with his behaviour and his professionalism. We, including our two children, just love this place and the people there.
  • Avatar Melanie Teeling ★★★★★ 4 months ago
    My family and I use to live local to this dentist but 15 years ago we moved further away. We have a few dental practises near to where we live but I wouldn't want to change ever. From the receptionist dental assistants to the dentist have always been absolutely fabulous. I would recommend this dental practise to anyone searching for a dentist.

    Went to see the hygienist (Eesha) today and she was professional and helpful. She gave me more comprehensive advice than I've received at previous appointments. The nurse (Sam) was super welcoming and reassuring. Both skilled, professional and friendly!
  • Avatar Alexandra Lambert ★★★★★ 3 months ago
    Excellent service from all the staff we met especially Dr Anastajia Bates and the dental nurse. Their gentle, professional approach made a patient who has not felt able to see a dentist for 35 years feel comfortable and safe. She is now happy to have regular dental care. Thank you all so much.
