People wear dentures to replace missing teeth so that they can enjoy a healthy diet and be able to smile with confidence. Modern cosmetic dentures are comfortable and barely noticeable, custom-made just for you in our dental laboratory to the highest standards. We offer high quality, durable and aesthetically pleasing dentures made of either acrylic (plastic) or metal, designed to function just like your own natural teeth.
There are two descriptions for dentures - a ‘complete’ or ‘full’ denture, which replaces all of the natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaw, and a ‘partial’ denture, which is used to fill the spaces left by one or more missing teeth. At Newport Smile Centre we offer three different types of dentures depending on your needs.
Co-Cr stands for cobalt-chrome, a light but strong alloy metal used with pink plastic to create full or partial dentures. Co-Cr dentures are hygienic, durable and are retained with metal or resin clasps and are coloured to match the shade of your existing teeth.
Flexible dentures are made by injection moulding nylon, making the denture virtually unbreakable. The integrated clasps ensure great retention and the material can be used in combination with Co-Cr frameworks and are particularly effective when used to create small partial dentures.
Acrylic dentures can be used as a temporary restoration in implant cases, or as a more permanent solution to tooth loss. We can provide our patients with a high quality acrylic denture with the perfect fit.
If you are looking for a way of replacing missing teeth, please feel free to speak to your dentist who will be happy to advise and discuss the different denture options with you and see which one may be the most suitable for you.
