Dentures



Denture replace missing teeth. ‘Partial’ dentures replace a few missing teeth and ‘full’ dentures are needed if all the natural teeth are missing. Dentures can be made of plastic and sometimes metal as well to make them strong and less bulky.


valplast denturesAt The Smile Boutique in Peterborough we are also able to offer our patients the very latest technology in this field, the new Valplast denture. Valplast dentures are made of a flexible material for removable partial dentures; because your mouth is flexible it only seems logical that your denture is to. Valplast is also an ideal replacement to acrylic when a patient is allergic to acrylic, or when a protuberant bony formations restrict the insertion of an acrylic full denture. Patients who have already benefited from our Valplast dentures have reported that they feel more natural, more comfortable and gives them more confidence eating and smiling.

What happens?
• Our dentist will use putty-like material to make moulds of your mouth - called ‘impressions’.Our dental technician uses them to make plaster models for the denture to be built on.


• The technician will make wax blocks, which fit the plaster models. The dentist trims them to show the technician how your teeth should bite together, and the shape to make the denture.


• A trial denture is made and put in your mouth. Your dentist will then ask you how it fits, feels and looks before they make any final changes.


• The trial denture then goes back to the technician who permanently fixes the teeth. The denture is then ready to use.
