A complete denture is an ideal tooth replacement option for patients who require all their teeth replaced in the upper or lower jaw. Your complete denture will have a natural gum-coloured acrylic base plate that support the replacement teeth.
The base plate comfortably fits over the gums and the design provides maximum retention. A lower denture is constructed in a horseshoe form, which covers the bony ridge used in supporting your natural teeth. An upper denture will cover the top palate to help offer good retention.
How are Full Dentures made?
It usually takes about 7-10 days from your initial consultation to develop your full dentures. Your dental prosthetist will:
- Take impressions and measurements of your mouth
- Create a wax model of your denture to ensure the best fit, colour and shape
- Build your full acrylic denture at our on-site dental laboratory
- Make small in-chair adjustments as required

Dentures from our In-House Dental Laboratory
All our dentures are fabricated at our in-house dental laboratory. This means that there is no additional travel to external laboratories, and turnaround times are much faster compared to other dental practices that have no on-site laboratory.
Our on-site dental laboratory fabricate your dentures using the Heraeus injection technique which limits the expansion of the acryclic so your dentures fit more accurately. Our dental experts work closely with our technicians to ensure the quality and excellence of every denture.
