Missing Tooth Replacement

Restore your smile and confidence

Quality solutions for missing teeth – dental implants, bridges, and dentures.

Missing Tooth Replacement

Replacing your missing teeth will not only improve your smile, it can benefit your oral health and function also.

Your chewing ability and speech may be affected by missing teeth. But the effects don’t end there. Missing teeth may have an impact on your oral and overall health also. The gap left by missing tooth can result in supra-eruption and tooth drift.

Supra-eruption natural occurs when your tooth emerges out from your gums, if there is no opposing force to keep that tooth in place. In the instance of a missing tooth, the opposing tooth may supra-erupt because it meets no resistance. A tooth may drift out of position if there isn’t an adjacent tooth to keep it in position.

Missing teeth may affect your general health. Imagine trying to take a clean bite of a piece of fruit with missing front teeth. Diminished chewing ability results in poorly digested food and the loss of vital nutrients, which are detrimental to your body’s health and well-being.

At Everyday Smiles, we can replace your missing teeth in a number of ways, so you can avoid experiencing the dietary complications that are associated with missing teeth.

There are basically three dental treatment options for missing teeth:


  • Bridges
  • Dental implants
  • Dentures

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are fixed dental devices that can replace one or more missing teeth. Bridges attach to the teeth located on either or both sides of the space left by a missing tooth.

Bridges use these teeth as support structures for the replacement prosthetic tooth. They differ from dental implants which are permanently attached to your jaw bone.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are the newest and most innovative way to replace your missing teeth. They are life-like, effective, practical and permanent.

Dental implants consist of two treatment steps. The first step requires a titanium post or screw to be surgically implanted into your jawbone. The titanium post serves as a foundation – in effect, it is a new tooth root. Titanium is bio-safe, and after a 6-12 week healing period it will integrate permanently with your jaw bone.

When the healing process is complete, you are ready for the second step of your implant treatment – attaching a porcelain crown to the titanium post. Your porcelain crown is designed and created specifically to complement and blend in with your surrounding teeth. All our porcelain crowns are handmade by highly skilled and experienced dental technicians at our Upper Mt. Gravatt branch.

The final result of your dental implant treatment is a brand new tooth. Your new tooth will be secure, long-lasting and totally functional for many years to come.


Traditional customised dentures are a trusted and proven way to replace your missing teeth. Partial dentures are designed to replace single or multiple teeth, while full dentures can restore full rows of teeth – top or bottom. Dentures can be fixed or removable for better oral cleaning and hygiene.

It may take a few visits to have your dentures made and fitted, depending your personal situation. At your first visit, dental impressions are made, and measurements are taken.

The next step is the fabrication of a custom denture model. You will return to try it out so that your dentist can check that the right fit, shape and function has been achieved.

After final adjustments to your denture model for shape and position, it is forwarded to our dental lab for final casting and fabrication. Once complete, your new dentures are ready to be fitted and adjusted.

You may have to attend a few follow-up visits so your dentist can ensure your new dentures feel comfortable and function effectively – when you eat, drink and talk.
