At Smiles (MB) Limited, we take a wholly personalised approach to your denture needs. Delivering “smile solutions” for clients throughout Lichfield, Staffordshire, we do our utmost to make you feel welcome and relaxed whenever you visit.

Get in touch today to learn more.

Making Dentures Better

All dentures and bridges are bespoke and made to the highest quality standards in our dental laboratory. On-site facilities mean it is often quicker and easier for us to make final denture refinements to ensure the optimal fit and feel for each patient.


The result? A smile you can be proud of, along with renewed self-confidence, greater comfort, and a smoother, more youthful-looking jawline.

About Our Clinic

Following a long-held dream, Matt moved his practice into its current premises in October 2011. Subsequently, he has split his dental laboratory and denture clinic into two separate businesses – The Dental Laboratory Ltd and Smiles (MB) Limited, respectively.


When you choose our clinic, we aim to exceed your expectations as a denture wearer. We offer free consultations to prospective patients where we can discuss their individual needs and treatment options.


What’s more, the clinic has a close working relationship with local dentists and specialists throughout Lichfield, enabling us to put you in touch with the appropriate practitioners if any further or alternative dental treatment is required.
