Broken Dentures

  • You’ve lost a tooth from the dentures
  • One of the teeth on your dentures has broken
  • Your dentures have split or cracked

As denture dentists, we advise patients not to attempt repairing their broken dentures at home.

Even a minor misalignment of your fixed dentures can affect the suction, which can cause damage to your mouth or the dentures to break easily again.

As dentures play a huge role in how you eat, speak and smile, any damage caused to them is considered a dental emergency, which we can treat quickly and efficiently at our London practice in SE1.

Available out of hours for denture repairs

We’re available out-of-hours to fix broken dentures

If your dentures are broken, remove them from your mouth. Retaining the dentures comes with a significant choking risk or the chance you damage your gums or palate.

While repairing the dentures yourself might be tempting, most of our prosthetic dentists discourage it.

For example, some denture repair kits claim to fix cracks, but we know that this doesn’t exactly work. At-home repairs also lead to more problems like sickness, rubbing, discomfort and damage to the gums and tongue.

Your emergency appointment fee covers the following:

  • 3D imaging software allows us to see what’s going on.
  • Appointments are faster, and diagnoses are more accurate.
  • Treatment is completed on the day for an additional cost.
  • Prescriptions and X-rays included
  • Patients can be seen within 2 hours of their call.


“I have had excellent treatment from both Dr Imran who made me a wonderful set of natural looking dentures and Mr Patel who has done and is still doing some excellent dental work for me. All in all, a fantastic service.” Terry, London

4 years a customer and always professional yet friendly service. Corrected my major issues (fillings/caps) and while they're keen to ensure ongoing 'perfect teeth' they don't hard sell peripheral / optional treatments. Highly recommended

I was looking for somewhere with a personal touch, that I could trust and that’s what I got at Mint. They always remember my name and are so polite. After a year of zoom meetings I really wanted my teeth to be straight and the results completely surpassed my expectations. I now feel comfortable taking photos! The team explained everything clearly (I felt I could ask anything multiple times) appointments were always organised and it was a really easy, worthwhile process. My teeth look like my teeth but are now at their best.

The clinic is a really lovely place to visit - it is extremely clean and all of the staff are very friendly. They were kind and reassuring all the way through my Invisalign treatment - as well as having amazing technology at their disposal. Dr Imran is so accommodating and kept everything simple, addressing any concerns straight away. All in all I would definitely recommend Mint Dental Clinic, a lovely experience all round.

Over the past six years Dr Raj and Preanka and all of the team at Mint have been exceptional. Every member of the team is exemplary at their expertise and I've never felt in better hands at the dentist. Affordable and top of the range, I would recommend them to anyone.

Dental tip: Wear and tear might cause a broken denture, which after years of use, might have undergone several stress cycles of chewing and daily wear. Progressive bone bones, which are common in denture wearers, may also cause your dentures to loosen over time and become ill-fitting. The lack of stability, in this case, can lead to the denture cracking or breaking.

Solutions for broken dentures

In some cases, a denture can be repaired easily. However, depending on the severity of the breakage, you might need a replacement denture.

In dental cases where a tooth on the denture is cracked, we can easily fix this in one appointment.

But where a denture has broken in half, the fix might be more complex as the integrity of the denture is damaged, and the suction is consequently affected.

Our prosthodontist will remove the damaged or broken tooth and replace it with a new one after taking the right measurements and matching the colour to the rest of the denture teeth.

We can attach the new tooth to the denture from here, and the repair will be complete. Timelines for repairs can vary, depending on if the denture tooth needs to be completed in a lab or from the chair.

Most denture repairs are done in one appointment, whereas more complex cases can take a few weeks. However, remember that we can offer safe temporary solutions in the meantime.
