Do you need dentures?
Remember when you could eat any food, talk clearly and and smile confidently without embarrassment or discomfort?
Whether due to injury, gum disease or genetics, missing teeth is a dental problem that deeply affects your quality of life… Too self-conscious to smile. Unable to speak clearly. Struggling to eat certain foods. If you’re missing teeth and this pain is familiar, you’re not the first - roughly 15 million people in the UK wear dentures to replace missing teeth. It’s an old problem with an old solution.
Dentures have been around since the 7th Century, for good reason. Sure, dentistry has evolved and come up with other solutions, but you’ll notice that dentures are still here. Why? Because they work! Dentures solve the aesthetic, functionality and comfort problems associated with missing teeth. And they’re affordable.
Affordable, time-tested and bespoke
If you want to eat, talk and smile confidently again (or for the first time) with beautiful, natural looking teeth and you live in Wheathampstead, Harpenden or nearby areas of St. Albans, Hertfordshire, our highly experienced denture experts can help you.

Your Custom Dentures in 4 Steps
You’ll meet with Meera, our highly experienced prosthodontist, to assess the current state of your teeth. She’ll talk you through your teeth replacement options and together you can decide which of our solutions works best for you.
After your consultation, you’ll come in to have your teeth moulded by our lab technicians. We want to thoroughly record the shape, size and colour of your teeth and gums, so we'll need several appointments for this step. But trust us, this is worth it. A variety of different images and impressions will give us the most accurate model of your new teeth. This is the best way to ensure your dentures have the look, feel and functionality that your teeth deserve.
As soon as your custom dentures are completed in our lab, you’ll come back to our office for your fitting. Once we know you’re happy with your new teeth, we’ll teach you how and when to clean them and answer any lingering questions you might have.
on-going review & support
Your new teeth might take some getting used to, so we’ll set up a review appointment to make sure you’ve settled into them nicely. But your comfort matters to us, so you can come in as many times as you need and we’ll do everything we can to adjust your dentures for you. No extra charge.
How long will my dentures last?
Getting fitted for dentures is a life-changing decision. Of course you want to know how long those benefits will last.
The professional consensus is that well-made dentures last anywhere from 5 to 10 years. Considering how affordable dentures are compared to other, more permanent, artificial teeth solutions, that's a long time.
For your dentures to last this long, you need to regularly clean them, just like real teeth. Don't worry, after your fitting we'll make sure you know everything you need to know about denture care and maintenance. These are your teeth. We make them just for you and we want to make sure you have them for a long time.
What if my dentures need relining?
Should you feel any discomfort with your dentures, we can reline them for you. When properly cared for, you shouldn’t need relining more than once every couple of years. But if at any point you have concerns or issues with your dentures, you can come in to see us and we’ll see what the problem is and fix it right away.
