When patients in Redlands, CA are told by their dentist that they may want to consider dentures for their smiles, they often wonder if this is the best option. Are dentures affordable? Do dentures look like real teeth? How often will they have to be replaced? These are all questions patients can ask Dr. Terry Vines of Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry when they are ready to restore their smiles!
What are dentures?
Dentures are oral appliances used to replace one or more teeth. There are two types that are available, based on a patient’s needs:
- Full dentures – full dentures are acrylic restorations made to replace an entire arch of teeth. They use natural suction, dental adhesives, or dental implants to hold them in place.
- Partial dentures – partial dentures replace one or more teeth along a dental arch. They are made with a metal and acrylic framework and utilize the existing teeth for support and stability.
Which one is right for me?
The type of denture you choose will greatly depend on the specific need you have. If you have one or more teeth within a dental arch that need to be replaced, a partial may be a good idea. Otherwise, an entire arch can be replaced with a full denture.
Do dentures look like real teeth?
Yes, they do! At Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry, we strive to provide natural-looking dentures to ensure the smile does not appear “fake.” All our dental work is done with aesthetics in mind. Dentures are custom-made for each patient to match their existing teeth and ensure seamless integration, whether it is replacing an entire arch or just one or two teeth on the upper or lower jaw.
