Full Dentures

Also known as a complete set, full dentures replace all of your natural teeth on the top and/or bottom jaw. We create a replica of your gums for a comfortable fit and a natural-looking set of teeth. Only you and our prosthetist will know you are wearing dentures.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are used to replace one or more teeth. We offer several different options to suit your price range, lifestyle and what you personally find most comfortable.

Flexible Partial Dentures

A flexible partial denture is made of durable, slightly pliable materials, so it can comfortably adjust to the ever-changing movement of your mouth. Created by taking a mould of the unique structure of your mouth, this type of partial denture is discreet, even when you smile.
The flexible nature of the denture can also make it easier to talk and eat. For those who find a traditional partial denture uncomfortable may wish to explore the flexible variety.

Metal Partial Dentures

Metal partial dentures are made from a metallic framework with porcelain teeth. They usually last longer than acrylic partial dentures and tend to feel more natural.
This is a good option for people who are allergic to acrylic or plastic. They also don’t cover as much of the roof of the mouth like an acrylic set, so can be more comfortable.


The shape of your mouth can change as you age or put on, or lose weight resulting in ill-fitting dentures. To get the right fit you will need to have your dentures relined every 1–2 years. Relining reshapes the dentures to sit more comfortably. Visit our services page for more information.
