Why should I have dentures?

Dentures come with a range of benefits, including helping to improve how you eat and speak, as well as boosting your confidence by restoring your smile. They can also enhance facial shape, especially around the lips and in the cheek area.

You can either have partial dentures for a few missing teeth or full dentures to replace a whole set of teeth on the upper or lower jaw. They are usually made from acrylic, or a combination of acrylic and metal, and modern materials mean that partial dentures will blend in beautifully with existing teeth and complete dentures can pass for the real thing.

What does the treatment involve?


During a comprehensive consultation, we examine your teeth and gums and ensure you are suitable for the treatment. We take impressions of your mouth, which we use in the creation of your precise and accurate dentures.


Creating your dentures is an involved process, as we shape, make and check the fit and look over a number of appointments. Our goal is to achieve a comfortable, well fitting and aesthetic denture, and we ensure you are happy with how the process is going throughout.


When your final set of dentures has been made, we arrange your fitting appointment. We show you how to carefully fit your dentures in your mouth, and remove them for cleaning, and give you some advice on how to care for them.

Frequently asked questions

  • How do I look after my dentures?

    It is important to treat your dentures with care. Clean them with a toothbrush or special denture brush, and don’t forget to brush any remaining natural teeth too. Unless otherwise advised by your dentist, you should remove your dentures at night and store them in water or denture fluid to prevent them from drying out.

  • Can I remove my dentures?

    Yes, you should remove your dentures overnight to give your gums a rest. Make sure they are stored in water or special denture fluid as they could become damaged or lose their shape if allowed to dry out.

  • Will I be able to speak properly with dentures?

    You may find your speech is different at first, as it can take a little while to get used to the feel of your new dentures in your mouth. Practice, especially speaking or reading aloud, will help improve your speech and you will be speaking naturally before too long.

  • Will my dentures look natural?

    We create natural looking, tooth coloured dentures, with many people unable to tell you are wearing them. There is no need to worry about your dentures appearing too false as we work closely with you to create a final look you are happy with.
