A denture is an affordable and reliable solution to replace missing teeth. At SmileHere Family Dental, our patients often choose dentures for their quality, durability, and affordability. To determine if dentures are the right option for you, you need to undergo a thorough dental examination. The dentist will also look into the goals you have for your appearance, including the functionality of your smile.
What are the different types of dentures?
There are three main types of dentures:
Temporary Dentures: If you are getting dental procedures like dental implants or dental bridges to replace missing teeth, temporary dentures are used. Temporary dentures ensure that you can still have a natural-looking smile while you wait for your final restoration to get ready. The temporary denture acts like a removable retainer and is secured in place with the help of a metal wire.
Partial Dentures: When you are missing a few of your teeth, then partial dentures can be an option you can use to replace those teeth. These dentures have a plastic base with the same color as your gums and a metal framework to keep the base in place.
Complete Denture: If you have lost all your teeth, then complete dentures can help replace them. The latest technology has made dentures more comfortable and natural-looking dental solutions than they used to be.
How are dentures made?
If dentures are determined as the right treatment option for your oral concern, then our dentist will take a mold of your teeth and gums to create dentures in the dental lab. The molds or impressions taken will help the dentist determine the functioning of your jaw. These impressions will be sent over to the dental lab to fabricate the customized set of dentures that not just looks natural but also fits perfectly.
