Denture Repairs in Reading
We repair dentures for patients in Theale, Newbury, Thatcham and wider areas of Reading. Because dentures must be made from lighter materials to avoid disturbing the mouth, there is a chance they will break no matter how well you maintain them. Dentures may also break because you’ve had them for a while and general wear and tear has caught up.
At Abacus Dental Studio, we have solutions that will help restore your smile in both the short and long term. We address the short-term concerns with emergency denture repair service. You want to spend as little time as possible without the smile you’re used to, so we are pleased to offer emergency false teeth repair for the Theale community.
We also have planned options like denture relines if you want to schedule a fix in your own time. Our emergency denture repair jobs are done with care, but there are some emergency solutions that may require a more permanent adjustment when time permits. We consider both emergency and scheduled dental repairs as part of our full-service approach.
Frequently asked questions about denture repairs
Having broken dentures is a nightmare. We have received and researched commonly asked questions about repairing dentures so that you have as much information as possible. If you have a denture question that isn’t answered below, please feel free to contact our dental practice and someone from our team will get back to you.
What if my dentures break?
It is impossible to guarantee that your dentures will never break, no matter how well constructed they are. However if your dentures do break in most cases they can be repaired and we will endeavor to do this as quickly and conveniently as possible for you. We understand how important your teeth are and how inconvenient this can be!
We will also investigate why they have broken in order to try and help to avoid similar episodes in the future.
Why do dentures break?
There are many reasons why dentures break, however here are a few examples: You have been unfortunate and dropped them: If this has happened it is a good idea to read our care instructions and consider purchasing one of our protective boxes.
Your dentures no longer fit your gums evenly: You should consider having your denture relined or perhaps even a new denture.
Your dentures do not bite together evenly: Sometimes we can adjust the way that your dentures bite together, but you may need to consider a new denture.
Can I repair my own dentures?
Repairing dentures is a skilled job requiring special plastic resins and equipment. You should never attempt a home repair with material such as superglue as this can completely ruin a repairable denture.
Can my denture be strengthened?
Sometimes it is possible to strengthen a denture by increasing the thickness of the plastic or inserting a piece of stainless steel or glass fiber. However the most important thing is for us to understand why the denture broke in the first place.

Call For Emergency Denture Repairs
Denture repairs – from £50:
Natural changes in your mouth can cause your dentures to no longer fit perfectly. Poorly fitting dentures can cause damage to hard and soft oral tissues and can lead to the increased risk of denture fracture.
You should always get an expert to examine the dentures before repairing them as issues with your dentures could lead to significant problems in the future. Denture repair covers:
- Replacing chipped, broken or missing teeth
- Adding teeth to existing dentures
- Broken & cracked dentures repaired
- Having dentures strengthened
- Denture stain removal
Your dentures should be checked on an annual basis to ensure optimum comfort and fit, and give a chance for a professional to check your oral health and check for any changes in your mouth, including your gums and tongue.
Dentures usually need to be relined every 3-5 years, or as necessary when your gums or mouth change and your current dentures start to become loose.
