Many people have an unfair impression of dentures, which isn’t surprising given the press they received some decades ago when television programmes would often show people placing them in a glass on the bedside table.

Even worse characters would be shown with dentures falling out mid conversation. Suffice to say those days are long gone!

Although dentures will never be as effective as your natural teeth or dental implants, modern dentures are certainly better looking and functioning better than ever. They are well fitted and help improve chewing and speech. They are also vital in supporting your facial muscles to fill-out your face and prevent a gaunt appearance.

There are a variety of materials we now use to make dentures and we will discuss what’s best for you before proceeding.

Depending on whether full or partial dentures are necessary, we will take impressions and create models of your mouth to ensure the dental laboratory manufacture dentures which are just perfect for your mouth. We may need to make adjustments to them to get them exactly as you want them however we will keep you well informed at each stage of the treatment until we give you dentures that will give you back the confidence to eat and smile properly.

I have found the staff at this practice friendly, welcoming and understanding and would recommend the practice to anyone.

The relaxing, re-assuring voice of Jo, and the occasional hand on the shoulder also helped control the panic that may have been present.   – Mr D

Very very happy. I’m a nervous dental patient, but Donal was very reassuring. I actually was prompted to have treatment I’d previously avoided as I felt I was in “safe hands”.


Donal is the best dentist I have ever encountered, and a very nice man with it too!

Like many others I’ve always dreaded a trip to the dentist but my visits to your practice I consider to be the best of my long dental history.  The reception staff are always friendly and professional and the view from the window is great! Claire Shaw is a fine dentist. Keep up the good work.
