Though built to sustain everyday wear and tear, dentures do need to be repaired from time to time. Most commonly, dentures can be chipped or cracked while cleaning or when biting down on something hard, leaving you wondering what your options are.
Thankfully, your local Bannockburn denture repair clinic is just a phone call away. A quick trip into the clinic offers you peace of mind with a free assessment of the damage and fast repair to get you back to looking and feeling your best.
Trying to self-repair any damage to your denture, whether a tooth has come loose or even if your denture has cracked in half, will most likely end up costing you the need for a brand-new denture, in our experience, it’s just not worth attempting any do-it-yourself home repair.
Dentures are made to fit together in a particular way. If they are not repaired exactly right, there is a good chance that it will affect your bite and fit, potentially causing painful tissue damage in the mouth and jaw problems that could easily be avoided.
Yes! Generally, chipped denture teeth are easy to repair through a dental bonding procedure and, if you have the chipped part of the tooth as well, a composite resin can be used to reattach the chip. If the chipped tooth is too broken, it can be replaced and colour matched by our team within a relatively short time frame, ensuring that you are not without your dentures for long.
In rare circumstances, a significantly chipped denture tooth or side flange can cause fractures and destabilise the appliance, which could mean that the whole denture is at a high risk of shattering. In such cases, all other options will be explored before deciding to completely replace the denture.
If your denture is nearing the end of its lifespan anyway, our team may recommend that you replace the denture entirely as the cost of repair may outweigh the value of the aging dentures, based on how much life they have left in them.
For a free assessment, come and speak with our friendly team, who can organise fast repairs, allowing you to step out with confidence.
Fortunately, repairs to dentures do not cost as much as the dentures themselves. Following a free assessment of the damage, your denture prosthetist will give you a custom price indication for the repair. As there are no two repairs alike, there is a difficulty in offering fixed price repairs.
Like most things in life that need repairing, if you want it done properly, you need to have it repaired by a professional. Take advantage of our free assessment & fast repair service, all completed within our own denture clinic.
