Light Alloy Dentures
At The Denture Studio you can have light alloy dentures (chrome dentures) when you have either partial dentures or full dentures. These light alloy partial dentures are an alternative to the usual pink plastic partial dentures and are made of a mix of pink plastic and light alloy metal.
The metal used to make light alloy dentures has been tested over many years to make sure it's biocompatible with your mouth and the metal used is Cobalt-chrome (Co-Cr).
The advantages of these light alloy dentures are:
- They are less bulky
- Better for your overall oral hygiene
- Lighter yet stronger
- In some dental patients we can uncover the roof of your mouth
- Feel more comfortable in your mouth
Light alloy partial dentures are designed to be hygienic and offer less tissue coverage, which increases oral sensitivity and taste. Your light alloy dentures will be retained with metal clasps or resin clasps that will match the colour of your natural teeth.
We can discuss with you on an individual basis as to whether light alloy dentures are suitable for you.
