Alternatives to Dentures 

Dentures have long been a solution for dental issues, but in the modern day, alternatives to traditional dentures have emerged. 

In this guide, we’ll discuss various alternatives, shedding light on procedures like getting veneers and dental implants.  

Whether you seek cosmetic enhancements or a more permanent solution to tooth-loss, this article will guide you through the options. 


Veneers have become a go-to solution for individuals with aesthetic concerns.  

Made from thin, porcelain shells custom fit to your individual tooth, they cover the front surface of teeth. The process involves minimal tooth reduction, where the dental professional shaves a thin layer of the natural tooth to support the veneer, making it a popular choice for those seeking a flawless smile without wanting to damage their natural, functioning teeth. 

Why may someone opt for veneers? 

  • Tooth discoloration 
  • Chipped or broken teeth 
  • Worn teeth 
  • Gaps between teeth 
  • Misaligned teeth 
  • Uneven tooth size 
  • Instant smile makeover 
  • Stain resistance 
  • Minimally invasive procedure 
  • Boost in confidence 

However, ranging between £500-£1000 per tooth, veneers can be pricey. Keep reading to discover a more affordable solution.  

Cosmetic bonding (dental bonding) 

Cosmetic bonding is a procedure in cosmetic dentistry where a tooth-coloured resin material is applied and hardened with a special light, bonding it to the natural tooth. This process can be used to repair or improve the appearance of chipped, discoloured or gapped teeth. 

At £200-£400 per tooth, cosmetic bonding is a cheaper alternative to veneers, however, they may not last as long and are more delicate.  

Dental implants 

For those looking beyond removable dentures, dental implants offer a permanent and stable alternative.  

The procedure involves surgically placing metal posts into the jawbone, providing a strong foundation for artificial teeth. With advancements in technology, implants mimic natural teeth in both appearance and functionality. This long-term solution ensures a confident smile without the hassle of traditional denture maintenance. 

Here are a few reasons why someone may choose dental implants: 

  • Improved stability 
  • Natural look and feel 
  • Improved chewing function 
  • Preservation of jawbone through stimulation 
  • Long-term durability 
  • Improved speech 
  • Comfort and convenience 
  • Enhanced self-esteem 
  • No impact on surrounding teeth 
  • Versatility 

Although dental implants can be expensive, they are a great alternative to single tooth dentures to replace a missing tooth.  

Implant supported dentures (removable denture implants) 

Removable denture implants, also known as implant-supported dentures, combine the benefits of dental implants with the convenience of removable dentures. This provides increased stability and functionality compared to traditional removable dentures. 

The dental implants are artificial tooth roots typically made of titanium. They are surgically placed into the jawbone to serve as anchors for replacement teeth. In the case of removable denture implants, the denture is designed to attach to the dental implants.  

Advantages of implant supported dentures

  • Enhanced stability 
  • Improved chewing function 
  • Jawbone preservation 
  • Cost effective  
  • Easy maintenance  
  • Suitable for complete tooth loss
