Why choose private dentures?

The teeth used for private dentures are more realistic and will be individually positioned to enhance and support your facial features. A wider range of shapes and colours are available such as Ivoclar Vivadent’s ‘Pearl Effect’ brand. Teeth intended for private dentures are specially manufactured to improve their strength an appearance.

Enhanced techniques are used to make sure your dentures fit and look their best. Quality is paramount, so you can expect a high standard of workmanship, using only the very best materials which will provide an exceptional result.

Economy / standard dentures

If you choose a cheaper option the dentures will not look quite as natural. Denture teeth manufactured for use with economy dentures are not as realistic as private dentures and can appear ‘false’. Often teeth with restricted shapes and colours are set to an ‘average position’ with little thought given to your individual characteristics.

Teeth for economy dentures are often provided without any form of guarantee against excessive wear and can lose both their functionality and appearance in a shorter time. Generally you can expect an acceptable standard of workmanship, with an average looking result.

Complete Dentures

A complete denture replaces all the lost natural teeth and adjacent tissues in either the upper or lower jaws. If you have lost all your teeth from disease,tooth decay or injury, then complete dentures make the ideal choice for relacements.

Eat with Confidence

Chewing is the first step in the process of digestion. Your denture teeth and your natural teeth are used to compact the food for swallowing and a certain amount of biting force and muscle coordination is required to chew effectively.

It is important that you choose high quality denture teeth that can help with the digestion process by keeping loss of chewing efficiency to an absolute minimum. Ask your clinician which range of denture teeth are best suited for your needs.

Smile with Confidence

An attractive smile is an important social asset and when you first meet someone, often people are judged by their smile.

Your clinician can show you the broad range of denture teeth and colours available from Ivoclar Vivadent. You can choose to have our unique ‘Pearl Effect’ finish on your denture teeth for a natural smile and healthy appearance.
