Replacing lost or missing teeth has substantial benefits for your health and appearance. Dentures can replace natural teeth and provide support for the cheeks and lips. Without this support, sagging facial muscles can make a person appear older and reduce their ability to eat and speak. Well made dentures enable you to enjoy a healthy diet and smile with confidence.

Dentures can either be made from acrylic or metal, and are designed to look and function like your own natural teeth and the surrounding gum tissues. Today’s dentures look very realistic and are comfortable to wear.


A complete or full denture is one that replaces all of the natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaws.


A partial denture fills in the spaces created by a few lost or missing teeth, and can be attached to your natural teeth with metal clasps or devices called precision attachments.

What does denture treatment involve?

Treatment will involve an initial consultation to discuss your denture history and requirements. Your mouth will also need to be examined* and a medical history taken. X-rays may also be needed. Impressions of your mouth will be taken and your bite recorded.

On the next appointment, your dentures will be tried in with the replacement teeth set on a wax base. Once you are happy with your new smile the acrylic denture bases will be added before the dentures are fitted.

*The Dentist may need to deal with any gum disease before your dentures can be fitted or even extract some of your loose remaining teeth. If any treatment is carried out, your mouth will need to heal properly before you can wear permanent dentures. If this is the case, it is possible to make a temporary set to wear, called immediate dentures. These are worn until you are ready for your final set.

Caring for your dentures »


“Invisalign – Light. Crooked front teeth that had started to become more noticeable. This, in turn, started to affect my confidence.

The experience at Beaufort Park was excellent throughout. The staff, from the initial consultation, were friendly and professional. The welcoming reception staff through to the excellent dentist (Russell Gidney) have made this an (almost!) pleasurable experience!

I feel so much more confident and happy to smile again in public.

“I hated my smile in photos, I looked as though I only had about 4 teeth! 🙁

Treatments have all been explained, the team have been great & I have started to notice my teeth changing & looking good – despite not even being half way through my treatment (Invisalign Aligner 11/23). I am so happy with the progress.

Thank you! 🙂

Super, I would recommend to anyone considering treatment.

“After years of being unhappy with my crooked teeth and avoiding photographers if at all possible.

I decided to seek corrective treatment at the grand old age of 55 in order to be able to smile at my daughters up coming wedding. After a chat with the Beaufort Dental practice I decided on a course of CFast treatment. In a few short months I was thrilled with the result. Straight teeth which were so much easier to care for and which looked 100 per cent more attractive

The cost was manageable too and I paid at intervals during the treatment. I wish I’d done it years ago.


“I did not like my teeth so didn’t smile.

Invisalign – absolutely brilliant! Very professional team, extremely happy with the results!”

“Even though my oral hygiene has always been excellent I have for many years hated my teeth which were discoloured + the crowns rather mismatched.

Dr Russell Gidney was the first dentist I had confidence in to correct my problems. He showed great empathy, kindness + professional skill. He made me feel completely at ease.

His dental nurses + admin staff are all lovely. The outcome is better than I expected, I now have a lovely smile!”

Pamela C

“I recently had cosmetic work on my teeth carried out by Russell at the surgery. he explained everything in detail and I am overjoyed with the results. The difference it has made is amazing and I thoroughly recommend them. The staff are very helpful too!”
