Welcome to Duchenne

At Duchenne, we aim to make great smiles. You will enjoy the most appropriate and cost-effective treatment solutions, so once fitted with a Duchenne partial or full denture you will be able to smile with confidence.

With 14 clinics throughout the South Island and a state-of-the-art laboratory, the only one of its kind in New Zealand, we are at the forefront of patient-orientated care and treatment. At Duchenne Denture Specialists we have always been a company of firsts:

  • First to bring to you Duchenne’s D³ digital system - the next generation in denture technology
  • First to introduce suction dentures to New Zealand
  • The only state-of-the-art laboratory of its kind in New Zealand
  • The only company in Southland that processes their dentures with injection moulding - for greater strength and a superior fit and strength

These are all fantastic advances which, combined with our insistence on only using the best quality materials in all our products, ensure our clients receive the best fitting, most durable dentures possible.

But that is only one side of the equation. We are acutely aware that having someone work on your mouth can be an invasive procedure and not something anyone approaches with great enthusiasm. So at all times, our aim is to be totally respectful, careful and friendly so that your experience with us is as relaxed and positive as possible.

A denture reline is a refit or adjustment of the denture. Relining of dentures is often required to accommodate changes in the mouth and to the denture. This can happen with tissue and bone changes, weight loss and wear of the denture. Read more

Sometimes dentures can fracture. This can be due to dentures being past their lifetime or the denture no longer fits as it was intended or the denture can be accidentally broken. Read more

"Thankyou to Robert Courtier for his outstanding work on my new teeth. He made the whole process so easy. My teeth are very natural looking and I'm very happy with the outcome. This was a nerve wracking decision to have teeth out but now I've got the new denture and they don't look false I'm thrilled."

"Duchenne Technicians and staff are AMAZING people!!
I had lost so much confidence because of missing teeth, I would try and hide them as much as I could, I'd talk with my hand close to my mouth, and wouldn't smile for people or even family photos. My new dentures fit perfectly and the process was fast and efficient. Thank you so much Tristan for giving me my smile back, you've been an amazing."
