What are dentures?

Dentures, also known as false teeth, are prosthetic devices constructed by dentists to replace missing teeth. They are used to restore your smile’s original aesthetic and prevent your teeth from separating to accommodate for gaps. 

Dentures come in both partial and complete formations. Full dentures are generally used for aesthetic reasons, whereas partial dentures can be used to correct a variety of concerns. 

Full dentures

Full dentures are designed for patients who have lost all of their upper teeth, all of their lower teeth or both sets. For instance, if you are going to extract your remaining teeth and need to replace all of them at a single time, then full dentures may be the most suitable orthodontic solution. This dental device consists of a plate that lies across your arch and over the gums, supporting a complete set of custom-fitted false teeth. 

To start your journey to full dentures in Newcastle NSW, arrange a consultation at Charlestown Dental Centre today.

Partial dentures

These dentures are recommended if you still have some healthy natural teeth, as they slot into the gaps without the need for any extraction. Only replacing missing teeth, partials take up less room in your mouth. Depending on the teeth you are missing, partial dentures can be made of acrylic or come with a metal base.

Implant-supported dentures

If you would prefer a more permanent solution, we may be able to attach your dentures to dental implants for extra stabilisation and a more comfortable fit. Between two and four implants can be used to support a full arch denture. These overdentures can be removable or anchored into place, depending on your preferences and the type of dentures chosen.

Dentures procedure


Our dentists will consult with you to create the perfect smile. We will then construct and tailor your dentures to fit your individual needs. Our dentists will also colour match your dentures to make sure they appear natural in comparison to your real teeth.


At your next appointment, your new dentures will be fitted with the formation of your mouth and gums. This process doesn’t take long, and will leave you with a comfortable, natural-looking smile! 


Once your dentures are in place, Charlestown Dental Centre recommends regular checkups, usually 1-2 visits per year. As the mouth is always changing, any adjustments that need to be made can be done by a dental professional. At a check-up you can expect your dentist to examine your gums and make sure they are healthy enough to support the dentures.

Frequently asked questions

What are the benefits of dentures?

Dentures offer the following advantages:

  • Enhanced smile
  • Increased self-esteem
  • Supported facial muscles
  • Stronger speech function
  • Better chewing

If you want to restore your smile quickly and economically and do not qualify for dental implants or bridges, then dentures are a wonderful option. Book a consultation with our team today to discuss whether dentures are the right orthodontic solution for your smile.

What are dentures made of?

Dentures are generally made from porcelain or plastic, such as acrylic resin. These materials achieve a natural looking result that blends with your teeth.

What age do you get dentures?

Partial dentures tend to be more popular amongst patients under age 45, whereas full dentures are more common in patients over the age of 45. However, you can get either type of dentures at any age, once you have all adult teeth. Younger people may need dentures due to reasons such as congenital conditions, physical trauma, disease, lack of dental care, and more.

Does your face change with dentures?

Muscles may begin to sag following teeth loss. This can cause your skin to wrinkle, your lips to sink in and your chin to stick out. Using dentures to replace missing teeth can help to prevent significant changes to your face.

How long does it take to get full dentures?

It typically takes between six weeks to three months to get full dentures. However, this time frame varies depending on the type of dentures you have selected and whether any teeth need to be extracted.

How long do dentures last?

Full dentures generally last five to ten years, whereas partial dentures can last up to 15 years. The better you look after your dentures, the longer they will last. 

Additionally, as your mouth changes over time, we highly recommend a check-up every 12 months, or at the earliest sign of irritation. This way, the fit can be adjusted as needed for best results. 

Can dentures be put in permanently?

Yes, dentures can be put in permanently. Also known as implant dentures, these permanent dentures are affixed to the bone in the jaw and are not removable. As well as being firmly attached with no risk of falling out, these dentures look and feel like real teeth.

To learn whether you qualify for permanent dentures, please book a consultation online for dentures in Newcastle NSW.

Can a partial denture be attached to an implant?

Yes, it may be possible to attach a partial denture to an implant. In fact, an implant-supported partial denture creates a strong and very natural-looking tooth restoration.
