We understand that appearance is very important and a smile can be the first and most important impression that you can make. This is just as important to us. At Blackrock Denture Clinic we personalise a denture to suit your preferred aesthetics, whether that be perfectly straight, bright white teeth to replicate a veneered look, or something a little more characterized.
If you are considering investing in a new set of dentures, we encourage you to come to Blackrock Denture Clinic where you will be treated by the same Clinical Technician at every appointment, and I will use this information I gain from you to produce and design your new dentures to the specifications you request.
Partial dentures are a removable dental appliance that replaces the missing teeth in the mouth. You would need a partial denture for aesthetic reasons but more importantly for eating, talking and to help keep remaining teeth from drifting out of place or over erupting.
Implant Retained Dentures
Unfortunately, ill fitting dentures are very common. While in many cases, this can be overcome by the detailed processes we use when making impressions and fabricating dentures, there are some patients who have too little bone left to hold the bulk of a denture. It is usually seen in the lower jaw, and the best option in these cases is to have two implants placed towards the front of the lower jaw, and a denture made to click tight onto these implants.
Emergency Repairs & Relines
We are fully equipped for those unforgiving circumstances where a patient has unfortunately lost their denture and needs a new one ASAP! You can either drop it off for pick up later in the day, or collect it the next day, whichever is more convenient for you.
Our aim is to make aesthically pleasing, comfortable and functional dentures of the highest quality and using the most up to date products and equipment. It is our practice to invest considerable time and money attending courses and buying the right equipment so we can pass on the benefits to our clients.
The Ivoclar molding machine
Most recently we have invested in the Ivo-Base injection-molding machine, which produces the highest quality finish to any denture I have seen. This finish is only possible by using a special impression technique for upper and lower jaws, combined with a Gothic Arch bite registration, which allows us technicians to combine the teeth (Phonares from Vivadent) to be set in the mouth's neutral zones. This means there is no interference with the patients speech or ability to chew properly and also gives the patient a proper facial profile, and not the collapsed look that can result from years of wearing ill-fitting and uncomfortable dentures.
