Enough change oc­curs over a pe­riod of 12 to 18 months to war­rant reg­u­lar checks on the fit of your den­tures.

At such a main­te­nance visit, den­tures can be cleaned and re­ju­ve­nated, mak­ing them look new and per­form as ex­pected.

The fit­ting sur­faces get ad­dressed and gaps be­tween the gum and den­ture will be filled with new ma­te­rial.

This will make the den­tures fit snug and feel com­fort­able. The pro­ce­dure is re­ferred to as a re­line.

In some in­stances den­tures with too much wear will have to be re­placed giv­ing you the chance to choose the qual­ity of ma­te­ri­als used, as well as the de­gree of au­then­tic­ity of the fin­ish, af­fect­ing your ap­pear­ance. Af­ter all, you don’t want to ap­pear to be wear­ing den­tures, do you?

Gen­er­ally speak­ing, base-line den­tures do look false but by spend­ing a tad more, this can be reme­died. Opt­ing for higher qual­ity teeth will un­de­ni­ably im­prove the out­come, as the den­tures will ap­pear more life­like. If you can, com­bine this with a nat­u­ral look­ing set-up of the teeth. It will make a sig­nif­i­cant dif­fer­ence to your to­tal ap­pear­ance.

If you also add some gum sculpt­ing to the den­tures, even those with a trained eye, won’t pick up the fact you are wear­ing den­tures!

Thor­ough im­pres­sion tak­ing and ac­cu­rate bite reg­is­tra­tion will add to the pos­i­tive out­come of a good set of den­tures.

The team at Den­tures. co.nz at 111 St Johns Road, Mead­ow­bank, spe­cialise in craft­ing den­tures of ex­cep­tional qual­ity and have many sat­is­fied pa­tients.
