Full dentures, or complete dentures, are a removable device that can be used to replace missing teeth. The denture teeth are custom-made to fit your mouth, providing the highest comfort and natural appearance possible. We provide services to new and existing denture patients, and can provide recommendations and service for denture maintenance or replacement.
Immediate dentures are put in place at the time of tooth removal. One or more of your existing teeth is taken out and replaced immediately with a temporary denture, which fits in with your remaining teeth and acts as a band-aid to heal the site of removal. Later, your immediate denture is relined to fit your healed gum line.
Acrylic partial dentures are removable teeth, custom-designed and set in an acrylic resin plate. These dentures can replace a single tooth or several teeth, and work with your existing teeth to restore dental function (chewing, speaking, etc) and appearance. Acrylic partial dentures tend to be the most common partial denture option.
Chrome partial dentures are cast to fit the teeth. Chrome cobalt dentures are lighter in weight. They can be cast thinner than acrylic dentures while maintaining their strength, and can leave the palate open for taste.
Over time, our bone-structure changes and bacteria build up on even the best-cleaned dentures. These structural and hygienic issues make periodic relining and rebasing dentures necessary. Well-maintained dentures provide the best performance, so it’s important you address any issues with your dentures, with regular consultations (check ups) with your denture professional.
While generally very sturdy, dentures wear and can become damaged over time. We work with your existing dentures and often restore them to full function. Alongside repairs, we can also offer options for denture replacement, if necessary.
I am a grateful client of Chris Bell’s dental technician practice where Chris and his able assistant, Lauren, exercise skilled professionalism. This is not-distant professionalism because it is complemented by the warmth of their personal interest and concern, which makes every visit to the practice enjoyable and reassuring. I wish them every success now and in the future.
10 out of 10! Good friendly, punctual and professional service. Care taken to get fitting & colour of teeth right. Teeth stay in place & have had no rubbing or ulcers. Very happy with the end result. A big thank you.
Chris and his lovely team are welcoming and professional. I’m delighted with my top denture, how I look and being able to smile again. Thanks guys, our family have all used your services and would highly recommend to all.
I needed a replacement bottom denture, as the old one was loose and I couldn’t eat properly. I found the best man in Tauranga, Chris Bell, to help me. He certainly has, as the denture looks great. Chris fit in appointments with no problems & I would certainly recommend him to anyone who wants top class service and treatment.
Very pleased with the dentures made by Chris and HIGHLY RECOMMEND him and his team.
