Acrylic Resin Dentures

Acrylic dentures are capable of replacing a single tooth up to a full arch of teeth. Teeth may be constructed in acrylic resin or full porcelain. Acrylic dentures are very versatile in that if remaining teeth are lost these may easily be added onto the denture in a single visit. Acrylic dentures may also use metal clasps to attach to remaining teeth.

Cobalt-Chromium Dentures

These dentures are acrylic dentures supported by a skeletal framework made out of nickel-free cobalt chromium. These dentures are much stronger and slimmer than normal acrylic dentures making them much more tolerable and comfortable. Teeth may also be easily added on and may too be in acrylic resin or porcelain.

Dentures with Acrylic or Porcelain Teeth

Teeth may be mounted on acrylic as well as cobalt-chromium dentures in acrylic resin, pre-fabricated porcelain as well as custom-made porcelain veneers maximising aesthetics. Dentures replacing single, multiple or full arches of missing teeth may be done in acrylic resin or acrylic resin with a metal framework. The advantages of the acrylic resin denture are its cost, colour and good aesthetics. The main disadvantage is the thickness required to strengthen the resin. Cobalt chromium dentures offer excellent rigidity, thickness to a bare minimum and a tight fit eliminating mobility. Its disadvantage is the potential visualisation of metal from certain angles as well as the body’s rare allergic reaction due to its composition.
