Patients who are curious about restorative dental treatments wonder if dentures are effective substitutes for missing teeth. Not only do dentures give you back your ability to speak, smile, and eat, but they are also natural-looking and perfectly fitted to your mouth and face. If you’re curious about how we create dentures to make them look as real as your natural teeth, the process is fairly simple.

Getting Your New Smile with Dentures

Your first step to getting a new smile with dentures will be to have a consultation at our office. Together, we will discuss your options for dentures, including regular dentures and implant-supported dentures, and help you decide which option is best for your unique dental needs and lifestyle. From there, to ensure they fit your mouth, we’ll get the exact right measurements and proportions for your custom-made dentures. When we design your dentures, we utilize a realistic-looking base that will look like your gums, and together we’ll select the shade you want your teeth to be so they look natural. Your dentures will be crafted to fit your mouth and look like they belong. Throughout the entire design, fitting, and adjustment process, we’ll do all we can to ensure you are happy with your new smile.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures attach to the gums via biocompatible titanium dental implants that are embedded in the bone of the jaw. This helps your dentures feel more firmly rooted in the mouth, and preclude the need for dental adhesives. If you have concerns about your traditional dentures slipping around in your mouth and not feeling sturdy, securing them with dental implants will increase your comfort. Dental implants will also help stimulate your jawbone and keep it from deteriorating.

Are Dentures Right for Me?

If you’re missing more than one tooth and it’s negatively affecting your quality of life, you may be ready for dentures. They will restore your ability to participate in your favorite activities with confidence! You’ll be pleased to find that once you receive your dentures, not only will you be able to speak and eat with ease, but they will prevent your cheeks from sinking in and give you a more youthful look. So if you’re ready to look and feel your best with dentures, contact us today to schedule a consultation.
