Dentures


What are dentures?

A denture is a removable prosthesis used to replace missing teeth. Commonly referred to as ‘false teeth’, a denture is traditionally made of acrylic or a combination of acrylic and light alloy metal. However, new materials and techniques such as valplast or from 3D printers have been developed to make dentures stronger and to make them look better for longer.

Our dentures are created through in-house 3D printers. These can quickly and easily create highly accurate models, which can colour-match to your gum and existing teeth. We may also recommend crowns or “caps” on some of your natural teeth.

A partial denture is fitted to replace some missing teeth whilst a complete denture is indicated when all natural teeth are missing. A good set of dentures helps you to eat, speak and often improves your appearance. Ask your dentist which kind of removable partial denture is right for you.

How long does it take to make dentures?

Depending on the complexity of each case, the duration of the treatment will vary. After the initial visit of examination and diagnosis, the subsequent weekly visits will include taking a digital scan of the mouth, bite registration, try-in of the denture, fitting and review.

What to expect?

New dentures always feel strange when first placed in your mouth, but after about 6 hours you will start to get accustomed to them. Adaptation varies with different people and often time and experience are essential before dentures can be worn comfortably and function effectively.
