A First class service at Elite dentures. John is a true expert in his field and the team are so friendly and helpful, I would thoroughly recommend them, perfect fit first time.
30. April, 2021.
26 years ago I had a car accident that left me with nerve damage to my face, damaged my gums and teeth. After years of bad dentistry I eventually took the plunge to go and see John and his team to see what could be done. I walked in, ashamed of my teeth and literally burst into tears. After an informative conversation, extractions and denture was suggested. I felt comfortable and confident throughout each process on my journey. Today I had my final fitting. At first I was taken aback by how different I looked and John explained the what, the whys and the whole picture. I walked out of there with a whole new me not just a new smile. I couldn't thank them enough. He said it would take a few days for me to get used to them and for once he was wrong. It took me an hour. What they didnt see was when I sat in the car and burst into tears, this time with tears of joy and not tears of shame. I cannot praise the team enough for the way they support you through the whole process. John and Mel, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Anyone who is thinking of having dentures then this is the only place to go, you will not be disappointed.

The staff are absolutely great, the aftercare was fantastic, when my extractions were done the team contacted me to see how I was doing. Before I visited elite dentures I was unhappy with my smile, since receiving my dentire I haven't stopped smiling. I've regsisterd with the dentist that they work with for further treatment which I feel really excited to be finally on the right track. Would highly recommend John and his team

I had a Denture from you about 12 months ago and it's been marvelous. Since receiving the denture I unfortunately lost a few more teeth. I contacted your reception team and I was booked with John, free of charge. I was told I had some gum shrinkage following the loss of the natural teeth, which is why it was loose. John added the missing teeth on my denture and did something called a relign. It now fits like it was new. I am so happy with the result and the continued care that I received from everyone. I can't thank you all enough. Ivo

What are partial dentures?

Partial dentures are used to replace missing teeth in the mouth when you still have some of your own teeth left. They can

be used to replace just one missing tooth or can be used to replace multiple missing teeth in any part of the mouth.

Why might I need partial Dentures?


If you have missing teeth and are looking for a quick, effective method to replace these missing teeth then a partial denture is the first answer. There are several important reasons why people choose a partial denture –

  • Cosmetic –  If you have visible gaps where teeth are missing and want to improve the appearance of your smile a partial denture can replace these missing teeth. Missing teeth may also cause your face to appear “sunken” as your cheeks fall in. A partial denture can restore this lost volume back.
  • Functional– If you struggle to chew your food because you have missing back teeth, a partial denture can replace these missing teeth and restore the bite. If you have missing teeth, it is not uncommon for teeth to move over time.
  • Cost – A partial denture represents the most cost effective way to replace teeth on a per tooth basis. If you lose other surrounding teeth in the future, these can often be added to the denture as they are lost.
  • Time – A partial denture can be made in as little as 1 day in simple cases when paying for a rush delivery on a private basis

What types of partial dentures are available?

  • Acrylic (plastic) Dentures

    Acrylic (plastic) Dentures

    Acrylic dentures are the most common denture produced

    Advantages of Acrylic Dentures

    • Easy and quick to produce, often meaning they are cheaper for patients
    • They are easier to add extra teeth to than chrome framework dentures
    • Easy to repair in case of minor damage

    Disadvantages of Acrylic Dentures

    • Thickest type of framework
    • Metal clasps to grip the teeth not particularly cosmetic
    • Years of use can affect the gums by pushing them back
  • Cobalt Chrome Dentures

    Cobalt Chrome Dentures 1
    Cobalt Chrome Dentures 2

    These dentures have a custom made framework cast from a cobalt chrome alloy before the teeth are added. They are often referred to as metal partial dentures or chrome partial dentures.

    Advantages of Chrome Dentures

    • Lightweight and precision fitting
    • Metal framework provides strength with the smallest thickness
    • Can withstand strong chewing forces
    • In certain cases a “ring seat” design can be used which doesn’t cover all the palate

    Disadvantages of Chrome Dentures

    • Takes additional time to produce the metal framework (2 weeks)
    • Metal clasps to grip the teeth not particularly cosmetic
    • More difficult to add teeth onto the denture
    • If bent outside the mouth the denture will need a full remake
    • Usually more expensive
  • Flexible Dentures

    Flexible Dentures 1
    Flexible Dentures 2

    Flexible dentures are made from a flexible nylon material.

    Advantages of Flexible Dentures

    • They can grip the teeth without using metal clasps
    • They are easier to add extra teeth to than chrome framework dentures
    • Flexibility makes insertion easy and they grip the teeth very well (excellent retention)
    • Less likely to break
    • Plastic clasps to grip the teeth for better aesthetics

    Disadvantages of Flexible Dentures

    • If they do break they are often unrepairable
    • The bite strength is reduced slightly due to flexibility
    • Years of use can affect the gums
    • Not easily adjusted if ft isn’t correct

Dentures vs Implants vs Bridges

The main difference between a denture, implant and bridge is that a denture is a removable appliance to replace missing teeth and an implant or bridge is fixed in place.

A bridge is where a false porcelain tooth is fixed in place to your natural teeth to replace the missing tooth or teeth. In many cases, the natural tooth will need some reduction to make space for the replacement tooth.

Dental implants are artificial replacements for your tooth roots that are placed within the bone of your jaw to help support an artificial tooth or appliance placed on top. Dental implants require no reduction of the surrounding teeth to replace the missing tooth.

  • Avatar Josh Williams ★★★★★ a week ago
    George and Natalie were very helpful and the first dentists I’ve had for a while who have been clear about problems and been able to help. Gave me lots of advice about where to go forward from the appointment and were understanding while being super helpful. Very grateful for the service I received as previous dentists around Manchester haven’t been able to help once a problem has been sourced.
  • Avatar Eliza Beddows ★★★★★ 2 weeks ago
    My dentists Natalie and George were absolutely amazing! I’m so scared of the dentist and they really put my mind at ease! Being 28 weeks pregnant they made sure I was supported correctly and helped me in any way possible! Again big thank you!!
  • Avatar kenny lee ★★★★★ a month ago
    The greatest dentist I have ever met before, I back to the UK 2 years from Asia, and I am now enjoying my new teeth and smile.
    I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation to Dr George and Dr Johnathan (Johnny). I don't feel anything in the whole process and take care of me so well.
    God bless you.
    Many loves and kisses.
    Great men, in Great Manchester

    I visited The Vallance Dental Centre this morning for a routine check-up. I found the reception staff and the dental staff to be very friendly, informative and professional. I was even seen slightly earlier than my appointment time. I would like to say thanks for a very pleasant start to my day.
  • Avatar Raychel johnson ★★★★★ 3 months ago
