If you’re thinking about getting your first pair of dentures, or you’re looking to replace your existing pair, we recommend getting a pair of our innovative 3D dentures
You may be asking, what are 3D dentures? 3D dentures (also known as digital dentures) are 3D printed dentures, created digitally using the state-of-the-art 3D scanning and printing machine that we have onsite.
It’s a brand-new technology that we’re delighted to offer our all of patients as part of the comprehensive range of denture services we provide.
Now, you may be wondering what the benefits of 3D dentures are, especially if you are used to wearing traditional dentures. Here are some of the benefits of 3D dentures, and why you should consider them.
3D dentures last longer than traditional dentures
Traditional dentures are typically made of acrylic or plastic, which can wear down and distort over time. They usually need to be replaced between every five to seven years. Our 3D dentures are made out of resin, which lasts a lot longer, is a lot more hard-wearing and a lot more comfortable.
3D dentures don’t take as long to make
With traditional dentures, you have to sit through several appointments while your new dentures are moulded, designed and fitted. It’s a frustrating process, especially if your dentures don’t fit as well as they should first time around.
With 3D dentures, the process is much more straightforward; we take a cast of your mouth, scan it using our in-house scanner and print your dentures on our 3D printer. No more having to wait weeks for your dentures or come back to the surgery for arduous adjustments.
3D dentures provide a better fit
Traditional dentures are made by pouring acrylic into a mould of your mouth, meaning that the fit is not always 100% accurate.
With 3D dentures, we scan your mouth using our innovative 3D scanner. We work out how far apart your teeth need to be and how they need to align when you bite down to create the perfect fit. This makes for an incredibly comfortable, close-fitting set of dentures that look and feel incredibly natural.
It’s easier to create a replacement with 3D dentures
We’re all aware of the long and frustrating wait when we break, chip or lose our dentures and need to book multiple appointments at the office so a new set of dentures can be made.
With 3D dentures, we already have your settings on file so we can quickly make you a brand-new pair, meaning that you don’t have to put your life on hold while you wait. All you need to do is come in and pick your brand new dentures up!
Whether you need a full set of dentures or a partial set of dentures, our high-quality 3D printed dentures will look fantastic and fit perfectly; ensuring you can smile with complete confidence.
