Smile again with confidence with a new set of partial cobalt chrome dentures

When looking for permanent partial dentures many people consider cobalt chrome. The reason is that they are lightweight, strong, hard wearing and can last 10 or more years. Chrome dentures can be used in both the upper and lower jaw. They fit in place over the teeth or using a metal clasp which prevents movement and irritation.

They are a much more permanent and durable denture solution than plastic or acrylic partial dentures.

Chrome denture advantages

  • Lightweight, yet incredibly strong and hard wearing denture
  • Can be manufactured with an open plate due to the strength
  • Reduces gum irritation by load balancing your bite
  • With less mouth coverage you taste things better
  • Does not leave any sort of metallic taste in the mouth

Overview of the procedure

From a patients perspective the chrome procedure is much the same as any other partial denture. First you’ll need to be formally referred by your dentist so we can treat you. Then we’ll get you into the clinic for you free 30 min consultation.

There we can discuss which is the best chrome design suited to your needs. We may even take an impression of your mouth if you’re happy to proceed. Making the denture will take 2-3 weeks and you may need to attend the clinic more than once during this time.

Your final appointment will be to fit the chrome partial denture and we may book you a follow up appointment to check everything is satisfactory.
