If you have one or more missing teeth you may be reluctant to smile. You also may experience reduced quality of life because you can’t enjoy your favourite foods or you may avoid talking or laughing in social settings. Fortunately, dentures at Dental Hub Geelong provide a great solution as they give the appearance of a tooth or teeth.

What Is a Denture?

A denture is a tooth replacement option that is made of metal or resin. Whether you need to replace 1 tooth or up to 16, dentures can help you smile with confidence.

Who Is a Candidate for Dentures?

Some people may need a denture if they’ve lost a tooth or had a tooth extracted. Dentures are also ideal for someone looking for an affordable yet effective way to replace missing teeth. It’s important to know, however, that dentures aren’t as strong as natural teeth. So it is a less preferred option but more economical than other options such as implants or bridges.


Dentures should last for many years though they may need a regular adjustment every few months, to begin with. As you become more acclimated to using them, full dentures may need relining, which is placing a cover on the resin. So the dentures fit more comfortably, a relining may be needed every 3, 6 0r 12 months, depending on your circumstances.

When we provide you with a new denture we also will give you a pack with some cleaning materials and a special cleaning brush which is different from a toothbrush. Cleaning materials are in the form of a tablet that dissolves in water and disinfects the denture in the solution in a little container we give you.

Yes, when you come in every few months, your dentist will polish them to keep them looking good and feeling good when you wear them.
