When teeth are so damaged that reconstruction or repair is no longer possible, dentures are one option for replacing missing teeth. The teeth themselves are typically acrylic, with options for either acrylic or chrome bases – each offer different advantages, about which your dentist can offer you advice.
We offer different options for dentures, depending on the needs of the patient. Partial dentures are potentially useful for restoring parts of an otherwise healthy mouth that have suffering from dental trauma. Meanwhile complete dentures fully replace the teeth, following the loss of all teeth in a single arch
Another alternative is flexible dentures, which may improve comfort when resting on the gums as they are made from a softer material. They can also have a clear base which allows the natural colour of the gums to come through.

Dentures are useful after the complete or partial removal of teeth to restore the natural look and function of your mouth. They sit directly on the gums and unlike some implant procedures, for example, do not require bone grafts and have few complications.
We offer immediate dentures which can be fitted on the same day as an extraction, providing comfort and confidence for patients waiting for permanent dentures or implants.
The cost of dentures varies with their type and specific requirements of the patient, starting from £352.00. We also offer denture repairs from £55.
