Stable, comfortable and natural looking replacement teeth

Dentures are a very effective, trusted and reliable way to replace one or more missing teeth and restore your smile. They can improve how you eat and speak, enhance your facial shape and structure and boost your overall appearance.

Why choose dentures?

If you have lost a tooth, or are looking to replace a full arch of missing teeth, dentures can help you find the confidence to smile again. Modern dentistry means dentures are more secure, thin and aesthetic than ever before. Partial dentures blend seamlessly with your existing natural teeth, while complete dentures can easily pass for the real thing.

It may take some time to get used to your new dentures, but the benefits from restoring a full set of teeth are numerous. Your facial shape is better supported and won’t prematurely sag in key areas. Similarly, a partial denture ensures your remaining teeth stay in position, eliminating any problems with alignment that may need more costly treatment to fix.

step 1

At your initial consultation appointment, we examine your gums and teeth, if you have natural teeth remaining. We discuss the treatment with you in detail, giving you an overview of the process and answering any questions or concerns you may have.

2

step 2

We take impressions of your mouth so a wax model can be produced, which is used to check the fit, bite and comfort of your dentures. This is adjusted until we are both completely happy with the model, and your final dentures are produced.

step 3

When your dentures are ready, we invite you for a fitting appointment. If you are having complete dentures, this consists of a gum coloured arch with prosthetic teeth attached, fitted into the top or bottom of your mouth. Partial dentures fit seamlessly into your smile, and are often held into place using hooks which anchor them to your existing natural teeth. It can take a little while to get used to your new dentures, so we give you some tips and advice and arrange a follow up appointment where we can check everything is going well.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Will dentures affect my speech?

    You may find you sound different when you talk for the first few days or weeks, as you get used to the feeling of the dentures in your mouth. This is particularly noticeable if you have a complete set. You may wish to practise speaking or reading aloud, but you will be talking clearly again before too long.

  • How do I eat with dentures fitted?

    Your dentist will be able to advise you about eating with your dentures, including starting with softer foods and slowly introducing other foods over time. Modern dentures are much more stable than ever before, so should not slip or feel loose while you eat.

  • How do I look after my dentures?

    Dentures are hard wearing, but the better they are cared for the longer they will last. Unless your dentist has advised otherwise, ensure you remove your dentures before you go to bed so your gums can rest overnight. You should store your dentures in water or denture fluid so they are not able to dry out and lose their shape. Remember to keep your dentures clean, using a soft toothbrush, and ensure you brush any remaining teeth and your gums too.

  • Will my dentures slip or become loose?

    Your dentures are designed to stay secure and stable, but they may become loose over time, particularly if you suffer from any gum shrinkage. If your dentures have become loose or unstable, or you are concerned about this happening, you may be interested in implant-supported dentures. This involves placing one or more titanium implants into your jaw, where they fuse to the bone and provide a solid foundation for a denture on top.
