Depending on the case, dentures will take several appointments to make. This allows us to ensure quality control, adapt the correct bite, and the look of the dentures with patient feedback throughout.
Dentures can last many years, and can be ‘relined’ ie. Refitted like resoling a shoe. They can also be tightened if they are a partial denture.
With time, the jawbones shrink, and hence adjustments are expected.
Some of our patients have had the same set of dentures for over 10 years.
