Are you missing a few teeth, or perhaps you’re having multiple teeth removed? If so, having large empty spaces in your mouth isn’t a good idea for many reasons, and either permanent or temporary dentures may be an excellent solution for you.
Today’s dentures are nothing like your grandparents’ false teeth! Technology has come a long way over the years. Old dentures may have been uncomfortable and look fake, but modern dentures are incredibly well-made.
They are designed to look completely natural to both the wearer and your friends and family. Being fitted for a set of dentures from the experienced team at our denture clinic can help improve your confidence while allowing you to eat all the foods you love.
When Do You Need Dentures?
Many conditions may cause you to need dentures, such as age, advanced decay and illness. A few common reasons where we might suggest looking at dental dentures are:
- Decayed cavities in your mouth which can’t be restored.
- Injury or trauma to the mouth.
- An illness that led to teeth erosion.
- Cancer treatment that affected the teeth roots.
- Advanced gum disease.
Dentures in Melbourne are not just for “old people” but an alternative solution for any adult who has lost many teeth.

Denture Care Centre
378 Canterbury Rd, Surrey Hills, VIC 3127, Australia
Monday to Friday
8:30 am to 5.00 pm
The Denture Care Centre in Melbourne has become renowned for enhancing patients’ oral health and appearance with missing teeth. Denture Melbourne allows patients to enjoy a fully functioning set of teeth that look and feel almost real.
Our team of professional prosthetists replaces lost teeth with either full or partial dentures, depending on the patient. Patients experience considerable health benefits and an enhanced ability to chew and speak by filling in the gaps.
Dentures also dramatically enhance patients’ appearance, preventing facial sagging by supporting the cheeks and the lips. They vastly improve your smile and give your face shape and definition whilst making you look younger.
Advancements in technology and materials have greatly improved the look and comfort of dentures in Melbourne. These days, patients no longer complain about the discomfort of dentures but love the form-fitting dentures that act like natural teeth.
Complete dentures are the ideal solution for patients who have lost the majority of their natural teeth. The full denture replaces all of the teeth on the mouth’s upper and/or lower arch. There are two types of full dentures for patients to choose from: the ‘conventional’ and the ‘immediate’.
A conventional dentures Melbourne service is fitted approximately eight to 12 weeks after removing teeth to allow healing time for the gum tissue. During the healing period, patients are without teeth.
Conversely, the immediate full denture ensures patients aren’t left without teeth during the healing process.
As the name suggests, it is fitted immediately after the removal of teeth. However, your denture Melbourne can become loose as the bone supporting the teeth reshapes during the healing time. In these circumstances, a realignment of the denture is necessary shortly after being fitted.
Partial dentures are the perfect option for patients who are missing several teeth in the arch. The partial dentures replace only the missing teeth and are removable.
There are two types of partial dentures available: partial metal dentures and partial acrylic dentures during Melbourne’s healing time. Metal partial dentures are manufactured from Cobalt Chrome or Titanium, whereas partial acrylic dentures and made from hard acrylic or flexible acrylic material.
The flexible partial dentures are more suited to those missing a small number of teeth. They are also preferred from an aesthetic perspective when retainers and clasps are visible.
After tooth loss, your ridge supporting the gum tissue begins to shrink and continues to do so over time. This results in the dentures becoming loose. In order to restore them to the perfect fit, the fitting surface of the denture needs to be relined.
To do this, The dental prosthetist applies a new lining that helps the denture contour to your gum line. It is advised to visit your prosthetist every two years to ensure your dentures fit correctly and do not rub.
We understand people rely on their dentures to live comfortably and confidently, which is why we offer same-day denture repairs. If your dentures have broken and require repairs, you can rely on our prosthetists to fix them in a fast and efficient manner.

Ideal Candidates for Dentures
Good candidates for either full or partial dentures are individuals who have experienced significant tooth loss. Additionally, an ideal denture candidate should have sufficient healthy bone and gum tissue to adhere to dentures.

Who is a candidate for a Partial Dentures?
The ideal candidate for a partial denture is someone who has had several teeth extracted or may be missing teeth due to an accident or other event. These partials help maintain as natural of a look as possible.
Once the candidate meets with our dental prosthetist, they can begin to create a partial that is the perfect size and fit for that individual.
Our partials are designed to match the rest of your teeth, using nanotechnology to create aesthetically pleasing and durable partials.
Our on-site prosthetic laboratory allows you to eliminate the middle man and deal directly with the people who will be creating and/or repairing your new partial denture. In addition, weto determine beeline take our time when consulting with a new client to determine best how to create a partial that matches the client.
We also use nanotechnology to determine best to create durable and beautiful teeth, which involves making five nanomaterial layers.
To create a custom fit, we use an injection moulding process, which is the most precise process for creating partials, implants and other dentures.
Our dental prosthetists are highly trained professionals who specialise in creating dentures. Their goal is to create the best partial possible for your mouth.
That's where we can help. Our processing system uses injection moulding, which we believe is the best choice for moulding dentures, whether for creating new sets of dentures or for denture repairs. Injection moulding allows us to be precise, so the teeth in your dentures match and have the finest quality shape.
We also use nanotechnology to create beautiful and durable teeth that will last longer and look more realistic. Nanotechnology uses five layers to create stable teeth that will stand up to everyday wear and tear and look great as well. In addition, we will work to create teeth that will match your dentures, so your dentures wear exceptionally well.
Our head dental prosthetist is an expert at repairing dentures to look the way they are supposed to.
