Dentures are normally removable but can be fixed into place using dental implants. You can have partial dentures, which blend in seamlessly with your existing teeth, or complete dentures, which replace all teeth and can pass for the real thing.
At Docklands Dental House, dentures are created using modern, high quality materials. They are very natural looking in the mouth and have a secure and comfortable fit, giving you confidence when eating, talking and smiling.
As the name suggests, these are more flexible than standard acrylic dentures and can be adapted to flex and grip around teeth. The denture is therefore more comfortable and feels more secure. No metal components are included, giving a natural look.
Extremely lightweight and durable, chrome dentures can be made with attachments to hold onto existing teeth, giving extra stability. They can be made in thin sections to avoid the bulky feeling that is often found with acrylic dentures.
