A cosmetic denture is designed to look just like your natural teeth and gums so that the fact that you are wearing a denture is a secret shared only with your clinician. It also allows you to make the changes to them that you might have wanted to make on your natural teeth.

How many appointments do I need?

Making a quality complete set of cosmetic dentures can often take as little as four visits to your clinician. Everyone’s face, teeth and gums are different as is the relationship between their upper and lower jaws. Each appointment is crucial for a final denture that looks, fits and works well.

Getting used to your denture

It will take a bit of time to get use to your new denture, particularly if it is your first. Expect a number of adjustments to be needed. Always tell us about your concerns, being as specific about them as possible. Complete dentures will never feel like your own teeth, they will, however, become comfortable and functional with time.

Things to consider before your appointment

Your clinician will plan your new set of dentures with meticulous attention to detail and the information you can provide is essential to this process.

  • What are the problems with your present dentures?
  • What improvements would you like, if possible?
  • Are you happy with the size, colour, shape and position of your teeth?
  • Can you speak clearly with your current set?
  • What do you like about your present dentures?

People often look best when teeth of a similar size and shape to their original teeth are chosen. If you have a photograph showing them, then bring it with you since it will help with the choice.
