It could be made from all plastic or a mixture of metal and plastic. Both may come with or without clasps to help keep the denture in place in the mouth.

What is a cosmetic denture and why is it different from other dentures?

The difference between conventional dentures and our cosmetic dentures is the life-like appearance of the teeth. Working with very talented dental technicians we manufacture teeth, which not only look natural but are strong and robust enough to be able to chew anything.

What does the process involve?

The process is simple and takes 4 stages. During the first two stages, very accurate measurements and impressions are taken of your mouth and jaw and a decision is made on your choice of colour and shape of your new teeth. The third stage is when we trial a wax replica in your mouth and make any adjustments needed. At the final stage, the newly finished cosmetic denture is delivered to you.

How long does it take?

The manufacturing of a denture takes 4 – 6 weeks depending on the choice of materials and the complexity of the case.

How long will they last?

Cosmetic Dentures should last for many years with appropriate care.

Do I still need to go to the dentist if i have dentures?

Yes, it is very important to maintain good oral hygiene and to have your teeth and gums checked regularly by your dentist. Bone and gum ridges can shrink, causing the jaws to meet differently. If that is the case then the denture may have to be re-lined or re-made because of normal wear or a change in the shape of the mouth.
