Turn Your Frown Into a Smile with Quality Dentures in Christchurch
Merivale Denture Clinic offers various services in Christchurch, from denture repair and replacement to cosmetic and partial dentures. Our goal is for every patient to leave with a smile.
Denture Services for Everyone
A common misconception about wearing dentures is that it’s only for the elderly. While tooth loss is more common among older people, anyone who has lost a tooth—and their confident smile because of it—can get dentures. What’s more, dentures not only replace missing teeth, but they also support the remaining ones to keep them intact and preserve oral health. Our range of denture services that can restore anyone’s smile includes fitting partial or cosmetic dentures, relining, repairing, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dentures
Are dentures expensive?
The condition of every patient’s teeth varies from one to another, which means the cost of dentures also differs. Some may need a full set of dentures, while others may only need partial ones. If this is your first time getting dentures, contact us and we can give you a free estimate.
Does getting dentures hurt?
When you’re first fitted with dentures, it’s normal to feel discomfort and mild pain, especially in your gums. The length of pain also varies, but new dentures can take two to four weeks to settle properly. Once the dentures have properly settled into your gums, the discomfort will eventually disappear.
What types of removable dentures can I get?
There are several types of dentures depending on what your teeth needs. At Merivale Denture Clinic, we offer full dentures, partial dentures, implant-retained lower dentures and cosmetic dentures. To learn more about what these are and which type fits your needs, book a consultation with one of our clinicians.
I just got a tooth extraction. How long should I wait before getting dentures?
Tooth extraction is a delicate process that involves cutting the gums to remove a tooth. Your gums need to heal before we can attempt any denture fitting. Every patient’s healing time is unique, so we need to examine your gums to ensure that enough time has passed for it to heal.
My grandfather Merv has been seeing Tom for a few months now and we are so impressed with his service and manner. He is very knowledgeable and explains everything in detail about the work he is doing making Merv and I feel at ease. He is the most kind and caring professional we’ve ever dealt with and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED him to anyone needing denture work. His assistant Anne is also wonderful!
I came to see Thomas about my existing denture, which was poorly made elsewhere, which was causing me major problems. I was unable to bite or chew properly and most times it would fall out while eating which is not a good look. From the outset Thomas was excellent at explaining why this was happening and after more discussions I decided on a completely new denture. From start to finish the care and attention to detail was amazing and from my previous experience, none of these processes were discussed and really had no idea how much detail was involved. I now have my new denture fitted and it feels and looks really great.
Thank you Thomas for making the experience good for me and restoring my faith in professionals.
I've assisted my grandfather in dealing with Tom at Merivale Denture Clinic and the whole process has been so great for him! Grandad had a bad experience with ill-fitting dentures previously and Tom's expertise and attention to detail has been the most amazing service in comparison. We couldn't recommend Tom highly enough, especially if the process of getting dentures is daunting for you. A top man!
