Best Fake Teeth Options

Best Fake Teeth Options

Believe it or not, some people still think the only solution for tooth loss is old school false teeth. Fortunately, modern dentistry has come a long way and there are now plenty more solutions on the market for those that have suffered from tooth loss.

Missing teeth is not exclusively for elderly people, either. In fact, in Australia, the average person over 15 is missing at least five teeth. This can wreck your confidence and influence every aspect of your life, including friendships, relationships and potential work opportunities.

Care Family Dental is here to help. Here are the best fake teeth options we have available at our Toorak clinic, promising to give you a new lease on life no matter how old you are or your budget constraints.

Fake Teeth Options


When exploring options for replacing missing teeth, there are various kinds of dentures to take into account. Conventional dentures present a budget-friendly solution for tooth replacement. These are fitted into your mouth only after any remaining teeth have been extracted and the tissues have healed. This healing process can span several months, during which you will be toothless.

Deluxe dentures are crafted from superior materials that resist impact and staining. They also conform closely to the shape and size of the user’s mouth and can be colour-matched to the natural shade of the oral cavity. Designed to emulate the gradual wear of natural tooth enamel for lower wear and tear, these dentures are tailored to fit not only the mouth but also other defining facial features like cheekbones and jawlines.

An immediate full denture, also referred to as a temporary denture, is put in place right after the remaining teeth have been removed. Immediate dentures provide the advantage of never having to go without teeth, but they require adjustment several months after insertion.

Partial dentures from our Toorak clinic are a removable alternative to bridges that rest on a metal framework that connects to your natural teeth. More than just aesthetic appliances, partial dentures are not intended for permanent use and are typically removed at night. They aid patients in improving their chewing and speaking capabilities and also prevent the remaining teeth from shifting positions.


Permanent Artificial Teeth (Dental Implants)

Dental implants from our Toorak clinic are a popular choice for those looking for a more permanent solution. They involve a titanium post being surgically inserted into the jawbone, which then becomes an anchor for a prosthetic tooth. Dental implants have a natural look and feel, and with proper care, they can last a lifetime.

Fake Teeth Veneers

Veneers from our Toorak clinic are thin shells made from porcelain or composite resin that replicate your natural teeth and are bonded to the front surface of the teeth. They’re a great option for those looking to improve their smile aesthetics without invasive procedures. Veneers can change the colour, shape, size, or length of your teeth, offering a custom solution to meet individual needs.


A dental bridge is a widespread, cost-effective, long-standing, and low-risk solution for missing one or more teeth. It earns its name by effectively bridging the gap that occurs when teeth are lost. Dental bridges comprise a crown on each end to hold up the replacement teeth. This dental prosthetic comes in four primary forms:

  • Traditional Fixed Bridge – This type of bridge is the most commonly used. It consists of one or more artificial teeth, held in place by dental crowns that are fixed onto your natural teeth.
  • Cantilever Bridge – A cantilever bridge is used when only a single natural tooth is available to anchor the false replacement.
  • Maryland Dental Bridge – Similar to a traditional bridge, this variant employs a metal or porcelain framework that is bonded to your existing teeth. A Maryland dental bridge is typically used to replace missing front teeth.
  • Implant-supported Bridge – This kind of dental bridge relies on implants rather than crowns or frameworks to secure the artificial tooth replacement.


Snap-On Veneers/Overdentures

The Foundation for Oral Rehabilitation highlights several pros and cons of implant-supported dentures. For those who have had difficulties with eating and speaking while wearing traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures provide a more secure and slip-resistant alternative.

They may also be more successful at aesthetically compensating for lost gum tissue. The American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) notes that implant insertion helps preserve bone mass, while traditional denture wearers may face weakening and loss of the jawbone. However, these numerous benefits come with considerations, such as cost.

Dental Economics suggests that the price tag of implant-supported dentures might be prohibitive for some patients. Additionally, some individuals may be reluctant to undergo the necessary surgery for implant placement. Nonetheless, the long-term benefits of snap-on dentures may render them a more cost-effective solution over time.


Full-Arch Fixed Implant Bridges

When all teeth are either absent or in such a state that they necessitate replacement, a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants emerges as the best enduring solution.

Prior to the advent of dental implants, there weren’t any fixed solutions for individuals who had lost all their teeth. Presently, it’s feasible to replace an entire jaw with dental implants and a fixed bridge, leading to a permanent, stable, and aesthetically pleasing result.

  • This allows you to eat and function as if you have natural teeth
  • Provides a robust, stable solution that will last a lifetime
  • Maintains your facial appearance and prevents bone loss

The course of treatment and the number of appointments largely hinge on the specific circumstances. However, generally speaking, 8-10 visits should suffice to have a fixed bridge fitted. The majority of patients report that the post-procedure comfort level exceeded their expectations.

The Cost of Fake Teeth

The cost of fake teeth varies depending on the option chosen. Dentures are generally the most affordable, ranging from $300 to $8000, while dental implants can cost anywhere from $3000 to $7000 per tooth. Veneers and bridges fall somewhere in between, with veneers costing around $250 to $2500 per tooth and bridges ranging from $500 to $1200 per tooth. Snap-on veneers are the most cost-effective solution, with prices starting as low as $500 for a full set.

Choosing the best fake teeth option depends on your individual needs, budget, and lifestyle. At Care Family Dental, we’re committed to helping you find the best solution for your oral health. We offer a range of affordable and high-quality options to ensure everyone can achieve the smile they deserve.
