False teeth Wanganui Palmerston NorthProsthetics/Dentures

At Dentalcarenz Wanganui and Palmerston North we offer a wide range of solutions for replacing missing or lost teeth which include

  • Dentures
  • Dental Implants and Bridges

Dentures provide a lower cost option to replace missing teeth than dental implants and bridges.

Dentures, often referred to as ‘false teeth’ are a prosthetic device constructed to replace one or more missing teeth.

There are many denture options available to patients these days. Your dentist at Dentalcarenz Wanganui or Palmerston North will discuss these with you. They include acrylic partial dentures, metal partial dentures, implant supported full dentures, acrylic full dentures or valplast (velplast) dentures.

In addition, there are a range of options for anchoring. This may include implants for full dentures and the use of denture clasps for partial dentures. We conduct any preparation treatment in our clinics and then take the impression/mould of the mouth. These are then sent to our registered dental technicians for the construction of the prosthesis. On return, we fit these in our clinics.

Dentures may take between 2 – 6 appointments to make and fit.


We work in very close contact with our technicians at Creative Dental Ceramics and Denture Creations, one of the most highly regarded Dental Laboratories in New Zealand. This close relationship ensures excellent aesthetic and functional results for our patients.
