Dentures

Dentures are removable false teeth that can be worn on the top or bottom of your mouth to restore its appearance and function. Depending on the number of teeth that need replacing, you may need a partial denture, which replaces one or just a few teeth, or a complete denture, which can replace all the teeth in the upper or lower arch.

The ‘teeth’ part of dentures is normally made from acrylic, or sometimes porcelain, and the plate on which these ‘teeth’ are mounted is made from a metal alloy, acrylic or nylon. Dentures are tailor-made from impressions taken of your mouth and modern materials mean they are much more natural looking than they once were, offering an affordable and practical solution to teeth loss.
