Flexible dentures are an ideal replacement of one or two teeth. They blend in well with the natural appearance of your gums, making them virtually invisible. The plastic has a chameleon effect and it is very strong meaning it can be made very thin picking up the characteristics of the natural tissue.
It is a good alternative to invasive treatment such as a bridge and is excellent as a temporary denture after implants have been placed.
