What are dentures?
Dentures are removable false teeth made of hard plastic or metal which fit closely over your gums to replace missing teeth.
What happens during this treatment?
When you opt for dentures, the process to get them fitted is straightforward. After taking an impression of your mouth and the area over which the dentures will be fitted, we shape the denture by progressing through the rim stage, try-in and then final fit. We always ensure that the dentures fit easily in your mouth as well as look the same as your existing teeth.
Why are dentures needed? Dentures are needed to cover spaces left by missing teeth, which can affect your smile and your ability to chew and speak.
What happens after the treatment?
As we get older, the shape of our faces will change. We will consistently check your dentures at regular appointments, but a good rule of thumb to follow is that dentures are generally replaced every five years.
Of course, if you have any questions or concerns about dentures, our team is on hand to assist in any way possible.
