Welcome to the home of Dental Technicians

Finding the right Dental Technicians has never been easier

We believe that you should have all the information before considering any dental treatment, and this is why we sit down after every clinical examination and discuss the findings or discuss what improvements you would like to make to your smile, and we can help you choose the right treatment for yourself.

Invisible Braces: Straighten your teeth, without anyone knowing you are having treatment – This treatment is ideal for those adults who wouldn’t wear braces because of the way they look

Teeth Whitening: With so many people providing cheap and ineffective teeth whitening, its difficult to know who to trust. Our teeth whitening solutions are tried and tested, and very affordable

Porcelain Veneers: Porcelain Veneers are the Rolls Royce of cosmetic dentistry, if you are looking for completely natural and stunning, long lasting results, then this might be the treatment for you

Composite Veneers: Composite Veneers can be placed in one day, and look almost as good as porcelain veneers, and are more cost effective

Dental Implants: If you are missing one or more teeth, then a dental implant may be the best way forward, they are generally regarded as the best solution for a missing tooth.

What Types of Dentures are Available? PDF Print E-mail
Dentures are removable prostheses replacing teeth that are missing due to tooth decay, injury or disease. There are two denture types:

  • Full dentures – when you have lost all your original teeth
  • Partial dentures – when you still have some original teeth

Full dentures are made from acrylic materials for the gums, while partial dentures may have a metal or acrylic framework. The denture teeth are generally acrylic, although porcelain is also sometimes used.

Full dentures fit snugly over your gums and are held in place by suction, though inevitably the lower denture can take some controlling at first (see the Frequently Asked Questions section for some tips). Partial dentures are retained using clasps that hook around your remaining teeth or precision attachments.

You have a surprising amount of choice open to you when it comes to your denture. There are several different standards of artificial teeth, with premium brands offering lifelike features that mean they are indistinguishable from natural teeth. So realistic that you and your clinical dental technician could be the only people who know you wear dentures!

The size, shape and colour of teeth vary from one person to another. The clinical dental technician’s skills mean they can choose the right denture teeth to suit you. The best dentures will help increase your confidence and your enjoyment of life. Once again, you can speak clearly and eat comfortably – and the support your dentures provide for facial muscles mean in some cases, it can be like having a non-surgical facelift!
