Full dentures replace all of the natural teeth. It could be a single full denture for the top teeth or just lower teeth. It could also be a combination of both upper and lower together.
Full dentures are normally required when you no longer have anymore natural teeth.
We understand that loss of your natural teeth can have a devastating effect upon your quality of life and self-image, as well as some basic daily functions. Dentures provide support for your face especially around your mouth, lips and cheeks. Without this support, sagging facial muscles and sunken features make you appear and feel older.
We offer 2 different services for Full Digital Dentures.
We digitally design the dentures using 3Shape Denture Software, then use a 3D printer to fabricate the base (pink) of the denture and also 3D print the teeth. Dentures are then stained and characterised to create a natural look. This service can take on average 2-3 appointments depending on the clients own personal situation.
Again digitally designed but we mill the base of the denture and either mill the teeth or use top quality, natural looking and hardwearing teeth that slot perfectly into the milled base. Gum work is contoured and stippled and then we stain and characterise to give authentic appearance. These take significantly longer to produce. The average would be 4-6 appointments.
Digital try-in denture: a huge bonus in the digital fabrication process of dentures is the opportunity to 3D print a try in of the denture. That means you will have a copy of the denture to take home and wear before you even receive your new denture. You can eat, talk and do everything you normally would. We can then assess the try in denture and make any required changes before finishing the final denture.
