What are Dentures?

Dentures are removable prosthesis that replaces missing teeth. They are a cost effective option and are customised for each individual. They can either be Full or Partial Dentures, depending on how many missing teeth there are.

What if I still have teeth but they are compromised?

Our team will sit with you and discuss all your affordable dentures costs and options in Melbourne. We offer Removable dentures, removable implant supported dentures, but also offer fixed solutions such as All-on-four or more and implant fixed bridges.

What is an Immediate Denture?

An Immediate Denture is fitted immediately after the removal of your teeth, so you can walk out of our practice with your new smile. However, there will be a healing period, where the gums and bone will feel tender and sore as they heal from the removal of your teeth. Over time, the denture will start getting loose and uncomfortable. The denture will either need to be relined or a new denture has to be made altogether.

How much do Dentures cost?

Cost of removable dentures can range from $1900 up to $2500 depending on the type of denture required, the number of missing teeth and the difficulty of the case. Each individual is different, and our team are here to help guide your through all your options and costs. If you are after Implant Denture solutions, then visit our Dental Implant Page for more information and costs.

Do you offer Payment Plans for Dentures?

Yes. Our team will go through all the options, cost dentures and immediate dentures process in designing your new smile. Payment Plan options for dentures will discussed as well.

FAQ’S About Dentures

What are Full Dentures?

These are dentures that replace all your missing teeth. They use your existing gum and tissues in the mouth to hold them in place. Sometimes, there is not enough good bone, soft tissue, or suction to hold the denture in place, and instead dental implants are required to help hold these dentures in place.

What are Partial Dentures?

These are dentures that use the surrounding teeth to hold them in place. The partial denture is only as good as the neighbouring teeth surrounding them, so it is important to keep your existing teeth in good health.

What are Dentures made of?

Dentures are made of the base plate, which is normally acrylic. This is the pink part of the denture. The teeth can either be made in porcelain or acrylic. Cobalt Chrome metal dentures can be made, especially if there are existing teeth present, as these are stronger and not as bulky. There are many variations of tooth colours and shapes that our dental technician can choose from, and these will be discussed with you.

Do Dentures get loose over time?

Yes. Over time, the bones and soft tissue in our mouth changes shape. The existing denture will not fit as well as it did. A procedure called a reline is performed to refit the dentures to the new shape of your bones and gum. Sometimes, a whole new denture may be a better option. Alternatives like dental implants which can be fixed could be a viable option.

Do you have ‘Flexible Dentures’?

Yes. Flexible dentures, such as Valplast, are more suited to those missing a small amount of teeth. They are also preferred from an aesthetic perspective, when retainers and clasps are visible.

How do i care for my dentures?

Dentures should be cleaned daily. Plaque and tartar can build up on false teeth just like they do on natural teeth. Special denture cleaners and solutions can be purchased from your local pharmacy or supermarket. Dentures should also be left out of your mouth overnight to allow your oral tissues to breathe.

Are there options for a Fixed Denture?

There are many different options to help you achieve a better fitting denture. All-on-4 solutions can be disused, as well as other fixed and removable implant supported denture options. Please visit our Dental Implant page for more information.

Where is your dental clinic located?

We are located in Melbourne at 118-120 High street, Thornbury. We are on the border of Thornbury and South Preston, close to Bell Street, and just a stones throw away from surrounding suburbs like Northcote, Brunswick, Preston and Heidelberg.
