Valplast flexible dentures can only be obtained from Valplast certified laboratories - Certification is your assurance of quality and technical knowledge from a Valplast Laboratory. Dental Aesthetics is a certified Valplast laboratory, we have gone through the Valplast comprehensive, hands-on training and met all of the Valplast rigorous professional standards required.
What are the properties of Valplast dentures?
Valplast flexible dentures are lighter, stronger, and blend in more with the natural tissue tone than conventional acrylic or metal based dentures.
A Valplast flexible partial denture does not use metal clasps which can be very visible in the mouth. Metal clasps also focus stress on healthy teeth causing wear and damage whilst holding a conventional rigid denture in place during normal use.
Valplast dentures are held in place by tissue-coloured clasps produced as part of the denture during processing. These clasps cause no wear on existing teeth; they are more comfortable and are much less noticeable due to their translucent nature, blending with the natural tissue tone of the patient.
In normal use the Valplast material is unbreakable and every genuine Valplast denture carries a lifetime guarantee against breakage.
- No shiny metal clasps
- Positive retention
- No tooth preparation required
- Life time guarantee against breakage of Valplast material
Valplast restorations, like your own teeth, require care and good oral hygiene. To help keep your Valplast restoration looking and feeling like new, we supply our Valplast appliances with a leaflet containing Valplast Patient Care Advice along with a free sample of Val-Clean Valplast Denture Cleaner.
1. Valplast - Acrylic Comparison
Here is an anterior Valplast partial side by side with an identical case in conventional acrylic.
Note the more youthful appearance with the addition of gingival shroud 'wrap round' clasps reducing the length of the teeth.
2. Valplast - Acrylic Comparison
Here is a posterior Valplast partial side by side with an identical case in conventional acrylic.
Note the very visible stainless steel clasps necessary on the acrylic denture compared to the less visible Valplast clasps.
3. Valplast - Chrome Comparison
Here is a posterior Valplast partial side by side with the chrome framework that would be necessary to achieve the same functionality. A rigid denture would require additional stability provided by the clasp on the opposing side vastly increasing the size of the appliance.
4. Valplast - Acrylic Comparison
Here is an upper and lower Valplast partial side by side with an identical case in conventional acrylic.

What is a Valplast flexible denture made from and how is it formed?
Unlike conventional acrylic based dentures, Valplast is made from nylon. Conventional plastics get their material properties by a chemical reaction between their different components. This reaction can leave small traces of a highly reactive component – monomer. This ‘free’ monomer can be responsible for allergic reactions, particularly to the sensitive mucous membrane in the mouth.
Valplast is a single component material that is formed by a heat process that is completely free from metal and monomer or any other possible reactive chemicals. Valplast, therefore is an ideal alternative for patients with an allergy to plastic material or metal.
Additional uses for Valplast
Valplast can be used as an aesthetically pleasing and comfortable temporary denture for patients undergoing implant treatment. It is also an excellent alternative to fixed bridges consisting of one tooth or more so it’s not only the ‘full time’ denture wearers that can benefit from a Valplast flexible partial!
