Your Guide To Dentures

Nowadays, millions of people all over the world wear dentures.  Dentures do more than just replace missing teeth: they are your key to confidence, a youthful smile, and enjoying your favourite foods.


Even if you’ve worn dentures before you’ll have questions about how dentures are made, how to care for them, and how to keep them fitting well.


Dentures are made of artificial teeth which are bonded to an acrylic or sometimes a chrome base. The Denture Specialist will take an impression of your gums and dental arch as well as any remaining teeth you have.


Then together with the Specialist’s advice you choose the colour and shape of the teeth that you would like.  Some patients like to bring in photos of what their own teeth looked like for the Specialist to replicate. Other patients prefer a whole new smile.  It’s up to you.
