Dr Leila Kingston
I am passionate about providing patients with high quality, comfortable, well fitting natural looking dentures. Since establishing Ballincollig Dental in 2004, dentures have been of special interest to me. More recently, I have undertaken extensive post-graduate training under the tutelage of leading expert Dr Finlay Sutton in the UK, and am undertaking a mentorship with him focused solely on bespoke denture provision.
It has been a real pleasure for me to undertake this further study on denture provision and I am dedicated to helping patients who experience difficulties with their dentures.
Not everyone is suitable for implants and some people prefer to replace missing teeth with dentures as opposed to implants.
The laboratory stages of your dentures will be undertaken by a UK based technician Sam Heskett who is dedicated to the most up to date techniques of denture production. Hours of delicate craftsmanship are dedicated to each denture to ensure natural and realistic results. We use the highest quality materials as I only give my patients the very best. Your input into every aspect of the final appearance is important to me. Old photos are a really useful resource to ensure the most natural finish. You may also take the “try-in” (carefully!) home with you to really be sure about the aesthetics before the denture is finished.
Are you unhappy with your dentures? Get in touch.
Your first denture consultation will take approximately an hour. This is a one to one meeting where I will take a complete history, listen to you and your denture and aesthetic concerns. I also take any x-rays and photographs necessary to design your bespoke treatment plan. We will discuss fully your challenges and the available solutions. Next I will formulate a detailed treatment plan. This will include my professional thoughts on your treatment plan, timeline of appointments, how long they will take and the time intervals between visits. In addition, I will provide an estimate of costs involved. This will be sent to you via email or post for your consideration.
