BPS® stands for Biofunctional Prosthetic System, which is designed to produce dentures that provide optimal function while eating, speaking or laughing. With advanced instrumentation and techniques, all your facial information is recorded. High quality European Ivoclar teeth and the state-of-the-art SR Ivocap Processing system give you the best possible looks and fit available today. BPS® dentures are the result of a coordinated system of quality materials, instruments and techniques designed to work with your body in a biologically harmonious way, maximizing function, comfort, fit and a most natural appearance.
There is a great difference between standard and premium dentures, the difference being the quality of materials and techniques used to construct the dentures.
Cost = Quality A quality, well fitting, and natural looking denture takes time to make and costs more.
Complete dentures might be the right choice for you if you are missing all of your natural teeth and want to restore your chewing, speaking, and smiling capabilities.

All of our cast partial dentures are made from premium German made Bego® alloy (chrome cobalt).
There is not a removable prosthesis made for the mouth that is permanent. The mouth is constantly changing.

BPS® dentures are a type of partial denture created using the patented BPS® system. The BPS (Bio-functional Prosthetic System) system is designed to provide denture wearers with a secure, comfortable fit that looks and feels natural.
BPS® dentures feature a unique precision-fit design, which ensures the denture fits snugly against your gum line and stays firmly in place. This eliminates the worry of slippage or movement while you talk, eat, or smile. The materials used to create BPS® dentures are also much lighter than traditional denture materials, making them more comfortable to wear.
Partial dentures tend to be an excellent option for those who need to replace one or more missing teeth. They are typically more affordable than other options, such as dental implants, bridges, and crowns. Additionally, they can help support the remaining natural teeth and keep them in proper alignment. Partial dentures also restore speech and aesthetic appearance, while allowing you to eat more efficiently.
If you’re considering partial dentures, a free consultation with Victoria Drive Denture Clinic will help you determine if they’re the right option for you. Our team of experienced professionals will answer any questions and help guide you through the process, from start to finish.
Implant Retained Dentures offer greater stability than conventional dentures and they help prevent bone loss as well. They “snap” into place and are less likely to slip or dislodge. They also help improve your chewing and biting forces, as well as your overall quality of life.
There are two primary types of denture relines: hard and soft. Hard relines involve the use of a dental acrylic material to build up the tissue surface, providing better suction and retention. Soft reline materials are often used for patients with an excessive amount of bone loss, as they provide more cushion which can help reduce pressure points in the mouth.
Rebase refers to completely removing and re-making the base of the denture, but not the denture teeth. Relines involve replacing the inner lining of the denture to provide a better fit. Depending on your needs and situation, we’ll recommend either a reline or rebase service that is best suited for you.
