Do you have missing teeth?
Our custom-made dentures can replace missing teeth to give you your smile back
Broken or missing teeth can greatly hinder your quality of life. Today’s dentures have become natural looking and more comfortable than ever. Dentures give your facial muscles support, and without them, these muscles can sag, making you look much older. Dentures will give you back your smile and help you feel like yourself again after tooth loss.
Intended to mimic natural gum tissue and teeth, dentures are custom-made replacements for missing teeth. Not requiring surgery, dentures are removable and can be taken out and put back into your mouth at any time you please. While dentures rest on the gum tissue and suction will help to keep them in place, a denture adhesive can also be used to further secure dentures.
The two main types of dentures are full dentures and partial dentures. Full dentures, or complete dentures, are a replacement for a full set of teeth. Full dentures also come in two types—conventional and immediate. Partial dentures, on the other hand, are used when one or more natural teeth remain. Usually, partial dentures consist of replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored plastic base. Let one of our dental specialists help you choose which type of denture will work best for you.
