Denture repair Tweed Heads

When you need urgent denture repair, we can help! Breaking a denture doesn’t have to be your worst nightmare. The first thing you want to know is can your denture be repaired, followed quickly by, how long will the repair take and how much will it cost? Read on for answers to your dilemma.

Emergency denture repair for all types of dentures

No appointment is necessary for emergency denture repair. Bring your denture to our Gold Coast denture clinic in Tweed Heads where we will assess the damage and advise if your denture is repairable, how long the repairs will take, and how much the denture repair will cost. This applies to full dentures as well as partial denture repair. The assessment is without obligation to you.

Same day repair for cracked and broken dentures

We offer a same day denture repair service for simple repairs like denture cracks or broken dentures . A simple repair depends on whether the break is clean, and if the broken pieces fit neatly back together. If this is the case, your repair can be done without the need for taking impressions.

If your breakage fits these criteria, you could have your denture returned to you on the same day, or in as little as 4 hours (weekdays), dependent on the damage. However, if there are acrylic or metal clasp breaks, or the false tooth adjacent to a natural tooth has broken off your partial denture, impressions will be needed, and for this you will need to schedule an appointment.


Denture repair cost

Denture repair costs begin at $100, and depending on the damage sustained by your denture, may alter accordingly. Additional costs will apply if replacement clasps or a tooth are required. If you have attempted home repair, then there would be an additional fee for removing the glue build-up. Some more complex repairs may require impressions to be taken, in which case extra cost would also apply.

However, accidents aren’t called accidents because we plan for them. There are a range of payment options available if you don’t have ready cash for your denture repair. Some home contents insurance policies may cover items like broken denture repair. Find out more about our denture repair prices today by filling in our contact form.

What if my broken denture repair is more complex?

Depending on the degree of damage, most dentures are repairable with the exception of those constructed with thermoplastic materials such as Valplast. Thermosens dentures are repairable but rarely break.

Of course, if your dog has chewed your dentures beyond recognition, or if you have dropped them and they shattered, then new ones may be in order.

Whenever impressions are needed for broken denture repair, appointments must be scheduled, and repairs may take longer.

Cobalt chrome denture repair

The metal composition of the Chrome denture excludes it from same day denture repair. Repairs involve re-welding in a specialist chrome laboratory. Depending on the repairs required, this can take up to 3-5 working days. Get in contact for our denture repair prices.

Repair of bad fitting dentures

Perhaps you are suffering with loose or badly fitting dentures. Our dental prosthetist can help by doing a denture reline for you. Relining your denture seals off gaps between your denture and the fitting surface on which it rests, restoring the fit, stability, and comfort you had when it was new. A reline of the top denture also improves suction. Cracked or broken dentures are more likely to result if your dentures are loose, because of the uneven pressure when eating and chewing.

What about a denture repair dentist?

When you take your denture to a dentist for repair, they will send it to a dental laboratory like Northern Rivers Denture Clinic, since dentists rarely have on-site laboratories. This is a more time consuming and less cost effective way to get your denture repaired.

Attempting emergency denture repairs at home

Broken full upper dentureA word of warning about DIY denture repair and why we deem denture repair kits unsafe.

You may be tempted to try repairing your denture at home, reasoning it will be quicker and less expensive – just a tube of superglue, right? Please do not endanger your health and your denture by going down that path for the following reasons.

The materials from which your denture was made are temperature-sensitive and applied in a controlled, highly regulated dental laboratory by qualified technicians. Denture repairs are made with those original materials in the same exacting environment. A hydro flask is used to cure the denture repair, ensuring the finished result isn’t porous. This is a crucial point because porosity, or tiny holes in the repaired base material, can collect and harbour dangerous bacteria. Further, after curing, your repaired denture may need milling, after which it’s polished, restoring the original fit and appearance. This is not a result you can achieve at home.

Use of household or super glues not only damage your denture, they endanger your health and fail to produce effective results.

Super glue is not made for human consumption and contains toxic substances that can be absorbed into your blood stream through the soft mouth tissues, seriously jeopardising your health.

Super glue can also damage the acrylic surface of your denture, causing a build-up which may render the denture irreparable at worst, or at best make it difficult, time consuming and costly to remove, so a proper repair can be done.

Any denture misalignment caused by home repairs can result in a poor fitting denture, sore spots and irritation of your mouth and gums.


No appointment needed for simple denture repairs

Frequently asked questions

How much does fixing dentures cost?

Denture repairs cost range from $100 upwards depending on the nature of the damage and the type and composition of your denture. If the damage sustained requires you to have impressions taken, or clasps or teeth replaced, you can expect an additional cost. We offer a no cost, no obligation assessment of your broken denture.

How long you can expect your denture repair to last depends on factors like the original condition of your dentures, their age, the denture’s composition, and the nature of the denture repair. We do not give guarantees for denture repairs because of these multiple uncertainties, Generally, you can be reassured the denture repair site will be stronger than the rest of the denture.

Denture repairs include cracked dentures or broken dentures, missing or chipped tooth, and missing or bent clasps. Bad fitting dentures can be relined to restore fit and comfort.

Dentures which have broken in half can be repaired if the edges of the break are clean and the two halves fit neatly back together. The broken denture cannot be otherwise warped or distorted.
