Dentures are used to fill in larger gaps in the mouth that may not be suitable for bridges or implants. Denture technology has improved greatly with time and there are lots of new materials and options on the market. They are great at replacing gum shrinkage which prematurely ages the appearance of the mouth following loss of your teeth. Well made dentures will give you your confidence to smile and chew back again. Dentures don’t just replace missing teeth, they also restore bone loss from the jaws, support the facial muscles and create more youthful appearance in the process.treatment fee

This impression will be sent to one of the finest dental laboratories in the UK, where your dentures will be produced and sent back to us for fitting in a few weeks’ time.

We will assess the fit again and make sure you are happy and comfortable, if so then you can continue to wear your dentures from then on.
