If you are considering having a new set of dentures your first step is to book an appointment with us for a free consultation. We will discuss the options available to you taking into consideration your personal views and your dental history.
We have a wide range of teeth available from which you can choose. You may also choose the material that you would like your dentures made from and whether you would like to include any optional extras.
If you decide to go ahead with new dentures you will require the following appointments with us:
- First Impression – We will take our first impressions and confirm in writing for you what has been agreed and the total cost.
- Bite – Your second visit will usually involve making a wax bite and a more detailed secondary impression may be taken.
- Wax tryin – This stage is very important as it is a wax replica of your finished denture. You will be able to see how your new teeth will look. If you wish to change the shape, colour or position of the teeth then you should let us know at this stage before the denture is finished.
- Fitting your new dentures – Your dentures will be fitted, and their comfort, function and aesthetics will be checked. We will then book you in for a check up so that any other adjustments can be made if necessary.
