A Natural Smile with Complete Dentures

When it comes to recreating your smile and restoring your dental health, put yourself in the hands of a professional denturist at Centre Street Denture Clinic to create custom fit dentures designed just for you. Full dentures can look just like natural teeth. And as denture specialists, we know the importance of getting them just right. We use precise jaw measurements and create custom moulds using premium materials to bring your smile back to life. Full dentures are also known as complete dentures because they replace all of your natural teeth in a way that’s easy to maintain. Full dentures are fitted precisely to your gums, then they’re held in place by suction and possible the help of oral adhesive. Full dentures are an effective way to look and feel great again at a fraction of the cost of full implants with the same effect.

Tips for using full dentures

  • Chew on both sides of your mouth. Distribute your food evenly on both sides of your mouth when you chew to keep your dentures more stable while you eat.
  • Chew slowly and precisely before you swallow. Minimize the risk of choking by making sure you don’t gulp down big pieces of unchewed food.
  • Take smaller bites. Slice your fresh fruits and vegetables into thin slices or dice them into tiny pieces so they are easier to chew. Some patients prefer to cook them before serving.
  • Drink with your meals. Whole grain bread and cereals are tasty and healthy choices, but they can stick to your teeth. Eat them with water or other beverages to make them easier to chew and swallow.
  • Avoid sticky or gummy foods. Foods like taffy, caramel, marshmallows treats, peanut butter, and raisins are known for causing dental troubles. These can adhere to the upper and lower molars and dislodge your dentures.


How long will dentures last?

Every patient is different, but most dentures last about 10-12 years (some people less, some people more). It depends on all kinds of factors.

Some people think that dentures should last a lifetime, but that’s simply not true! Denture teeth will wear down over time from regular use, diminishing their ability to do their job properly. It’s very important to maintain and replace them as needed.

Maintenance is a must for successful denture use. You wouldn’t drive a car for years and not expect to have maintenance performed on the engine, right? Your dentures are one of the engines to your health! They need to be assessed regularly by your denturist to maintain the best function possible for you and your dentures.

What does getting dentures mean?

Patients need dentures when their natural teeth can no longer function like they should. This can happen for many reasons, including medications, infections, cancer, or accidents and injury. The reasons are varied but the solution is the same.

Getting dentures means either the extraction of natural teeth that have been assessed as no longer usable or replacing some or all teeth that are already missing.

During an oral examination completed, our denturists can assess your needs and discuss expectations with you before beginning treatment so you have the most successful, positive outcome.

What does getting dentures entail?

The process of getting dentures is bound to vary from person to person and case to case. For some, it may take as little as three appointments over the span of a couple of weeks. In more complex cases, it can take several weeks. With new technologies like digital dentistry, patients can have their smile ready in less time and with less invasive appointments. In some cases, taking an impression isn’t even required.

How to tell the quality of dentures?

At first sight, it may be difficult to assess the quality of your dentures. But the more natural the artificial tooth appears is one sign that it’s of good quality. Another way to determine the quality of your denture is by simply asking your denturist what materials they use. Otherwise, you may not know until it is too late when you notice premature wear or fracture of your denture.

How much are full dentures?

Much like anything else, the cost of partial denture service varies from clinic to clinic, and depending on the technology and materials used. The best way to get a specific cost is to book a free, no-obligation consultation with us.
