How can dentures become damaged?
The main way dentures are damaged is by dropping them when they are being removed or inserted. Dentures can also become weakened and break if they no longer fit the mouth properly, because of gum shrinkage and change of shape. Subjecting dentures to too much force over a long period of time through teeth grinding, for example, is another cause of damage. At Cosmetic Dentures, we can repair and fix these issues, and if you’re not satisfied with the results, then there is absolutely no charge!
Can they be repaired?
A Cosmetic Denture Designer can usually repair cracked or fractured dentures, insert strengtheners into dentures and remove stains. They can also repair chips in the artificial teeth or replace ones that have broken off. Some clinics offer a postal repair service where you send your dentures to them and they repair them and return them to you on the same day if possible. If your dentures are quite old and have broken several times, it may be necessary to have a new set made. Dentures that have had teeth added or fractured multiple times are generally not very comfortable to wear as they no longer fit that well.
How long does it take to repair damaged dentures?
The time it takes to repair a denture depends on how badly it is damaged. Replacing or repairing a damaged tooth can normally be done by a Cosmetic Denture Designer on the same day with most repairs only taking up to an hour. If the denture has suffered a more serious fracture, however, it will take longer to repair. The Cosmetic Denture Designer ability to repair a denture depends on the extent of the damage, how old the denture is and what condition it was in before it was broken.
