Your dentures are very valuable to you and from time to time you may have an accident such as dropping them onto a hardware floor and resulting in them becoming damaged. If they have become uncomfortable to wear then contact us, we would be happy to help with our emergency repairs service.
How long will I be waiting for my dentures?
Our laboratory will pick up your dentures and firstly assess them. We will try to have your dentures back to you as soon as possible. A number of factors will affect the time frame in which your dentures will be returned to you such as the nature of the problem, the impact of the break and the type of break. If new impressions are to be taken, then that may also delay them being returned. However, we will try our very best to have them returned to you within 24 hours.
When the denture is being fixed, it will be made to resemble the exact shape and appearance as before.
Could I fix them myself?
Health risk warning: Do not ever attempt to fix your own dentures such as using super glue. This could go horribly wrong and in the long run be much more expensive.
The super glue has extremely strong and harsh chemicals which may result in it melting the acrylic of the denture. This will then destroy the shape of your denture.
Although we will do our very best to help fix your dentures, there is no guarantee they will be exactly identical to their original shape.
