If you have a number of missing teeth, then a full or partial denture can restore your confidence with a natural-looking and confident smile.

What types of dentures are available?

Dentures are made to match your missing teeth to create a natural look. They can be made from a variety of materials, including acrylic and chrome, and in different designs.

Dentures are made by attaching false teeth to a plate that can be made of acrylic or cobalt chrome. A partial denture can be made of the same materials. For a partial denture, clasps attached to the denture clip onto your normal teeth to hold it in place.

Implant retained dentures

Another option is a denture held in position using dental implants. Implant retained dentures are held in place with several dental implants. The denture can easily be removed for cleaning.

Flexible dentures

A flexible denture offers a less rigid denture that does not require adhesive or metal clasps to hold it in place. It is usually made of a clear, thermoplastic material which allows the natural colour of the gum to show through.

Cobalt chrome denture

One of the benefits of a cobalt chrome denture is that it can be made so that it does not cover the palate. Acrylic teeth are attached to a metal, horseshoe-shaped frame leaving the palate (roof of the mouth) uncovered. The design also makes them lighter and leaves you more sensitive to taste and heat when eating.

They are less bulky and so they feel lighter in the mouth. Another benefit of a metal denture is that is provides an element of tooth support that protects the gums from pressure when you bite down.

Some benefits of a cobalt chrome denture:

  • Food tastes better as the palate is not covered
  • You can feel the texture and temperature of food
  • The denture does not go as far back into the mouth
  • Chrome is strong and durable

How do you look after dentures?

Acrylic dentures can break if you drop them so it’s important to take care when taking them out and cleaning them. It’s also important to clean them every day by gently brushing them and placing them in a denture solution overnight. Dentures should not be worn overnight.

How long does it take to prepare dentures?

After an initial appointment for an assessment and diagnosis, a digital impression is taken which is then sent to a dental technician who will create the denture. It can take several appointments to get the right fit for your mouth to adjust.

What are the benefits of dentures?

  • They create a confident smile
  • Enjoyment of a healthy, varied diet
  • A more youthful appearance
