What to expect with denture repairs

Dentures are not foolproof. Over time, they may develop cracks or loose parts. There is always a chance that dentures break and need repairing. At The Denture Studio, we offer one-day denture repair for cracks or fractures. We can replace broken artificial teeth on the denture within one day unless the repair requires impression-taking.

Suppose your denture has already fractured and subsequently repaired several times. In that case, you need a professional denture fix. Come and visit us for a free consultation to discuss new dentures, as the denture may be prone to fracture even with little force applied.

Why consider denture repairs?

When dentures are cracked or loose, it is better to act promptly to maintain proper function. A denture repair is crucial because:

  1. They ensure dentures continue to function properly. A denture repair helps restore the functionality of the dentures, allowing you to chew, speak, and smile with confidence.
  2. They contribute to better oral health. Damaged or ill-fitting dentures can cause irritation, sore spots, and oral infections. Denture repairs address these problems, preventing oral sores, inflammation, and other oral health issues associated with poorly fitting dentures.
  3. They improve comfort and enhance aesthetics. When dentures are damaged, they can cause discomfort and difficulty in speaking. Denture repairs address these issues, ensuring a comfortable fit and restoring the natural appearance of your smile.
  4. They prolong denture lifespan. By promptly addressing any issues or damage, you can prevent further deterioration and the need for more extensive repairs or replacement. Regular denture repairs help you get the most out of your investment.

If you are not sure what solution is best for you, contact us today, and we will guide you through your options.

Excellent denture care so that you look your best

Good denture care is essential for your health and wellbeing, not to mention prolonging the life of your dentures. At our Hamilton denture practice we teach all our patients how to care for their dentures daily to ensure they function properly and look their best.

We recommend the following

  1. Go to your clinician regularly – at least 2 – three yearly check-ups.
  2. Continue with daily denture care to keep your dentures functioning properly and looking good.
  3. Never clean your dentures with caustic liquids or abrasives.
  4. Never attempt to repair your dentures yourself.


We offer fast and efficient service, usually within 2-3 weeks, depending on the treatment plan.

At your free consultation, we will negotiate a time frame for your chosen treatment plan.

We endeavour to make our dentures as natural looking as possible. However, in nearly all situations, we do a trial to ensure you are happy with the appearance. At the trial, we can make changes to provide the look you want is the look you get.

Cost may vary depending on the type of denture you need. We will quote you a fixed price based on the treatment plan at your free consultation. This quote will be valid for six months from the time of the consultation.

We offer Insurance & WINZ quotation, and if you have a Gold Card, we will offer you a discount.

We have a wide range of colours and shades to make your teeth look as natural as possible. We will recommend a specific colour that we believe is most appropriate; however, you will have the final say. You are welcome to bring a support person to help you choose.

A new denture provides enhanced chewing ability, facial support, personal appearance and confidence. In addition, it is crucial in maintaining gum structure and oral health.

We recommend a change of dentures every 8 – 10 years and a reline every 4 -5 years. Although your denture is likely to last longer than this, your mouth changes shape over time. This means the older the denture, the more likely it sits with a suboptimal fit, leading to oral health and hygiene issues.

If your teeth are beyond the condition for repair or the repair process is financially unrealistic. Dentures may be an option for you. We strongly advise you to discuss this with your dentist.

Our priority is to provide a comfortable experience for our clients in a relaxing atmosphere. In addition, our modern techniques and technologies make the denture-making process very gentle.

Don’t worry. We are not dentists, and we do not drill or pull your teeth ?


We believe post-treatment is vital for clients adapting to their new dentures. Check-ups are included in the treatment plan quote, so if you have any issues in the two months, call in to make an appointment. You will always be welcome.

If issues arise after two months, it is usually due to changes in the mouth itself. There will be a small charge for this.
