Dentures are an easy way to replace missing teeth. Being removable they are simple to take care of and when in place provide a natural looking smile.
Dentures can be used to replace a few missing teeth (partial) or all of your teeth (complete).
We offer three types of denture:
Acrylic dentures :
These are the most common type of denture. Made of a plastic material some or all teeth can be replaced.
Chrome dentures are more common when trying to replace a few missing teeth. They have a metal framework that sits on and around the natural teeth. Acrylic teeth are attached to this frame work, replacing the teeth which have been lost.
Flexible partial dentures:
Offer a more comfortable fit when compared to more rigid plastic dentures. The reason for this is that flexible dentures adjust to any irregularities and shape changes in the mouth.
