If you have several missing teeth then you will benefit from having dentures as they will provide support for your cheeks and lips. When we design your dentures this way it can reduce the amount of lines and wrinkles around your face, this has the result of making a more youthful look and can literally take years off you… They are generally made from an ultra modern plastic material which is light high-strength and durable. If you look after your dentures then this material is unlikely to stain or darken and will remain fresh and natural looking for many years.
We carry out a thorough assessment of your bite, your natural smile line and how you chew. We discuss what is important to you and what you want your new denture to look like. Taking this into consideration, we can prescribe the most suitable type of denture available on the market including Precision Cobalt Chrome dentures (that don’t cover the palate) and dentures with extra strong acrylic if yours are prone to breaking or even the latest flexible dentures using Valplast technology. These dentures are made from an incredibly strong nylon resin and each comes with a lifetime guarantee protecting them from breakages or fractures. Valplast dentures have no metal clasps and the transparent material above the teeth makes them appear more natural. They are lightweight and comfortable too – due to their flexibility.
Because of their high-quality design, Valplast dentures can sometimes cost a little more than traditional dentures, but most
patients would agree that it’s worth the extra money for a more comfortable, natural-looking finish.
