Dentures are removable, custom-fitted replacement teeth that are crafted from strong, durable materials like acrylic resin which can be reinforced with porcelain or metal. There are two main types of dentures: complete and partial. Kathy replaced her worn upper denture and restored her lower teeth to be healthy, strong, and beautiful! These are a few of the common problems we see:
Simply relining your existing denture may correct problems caused by changes to the soft and hard tissue in your mouth. In other cases, a complete new denture may be required. Several appointments may be required to get the correct fit. Make sure you select a dentist who is willing to take the time necessary to make a denture that fits you correctly and looks natural. Kathy came to see us last year with a worn denture and severely worn lower teeth. After a review of the options, she decided to replace her upper dentures and restore her lower teeth to be healthy, strong, and beautiful. Kathy loves her new smile!
