Dentures: Complete and Partial Solutions for Your Smile

Dentures, either partial or full, have been changing people’s appearance and self-esteem for decades. Here at Artistic & Family Dental Center, we know how crucial it is for you to have a healthy, beautiful smile that doesn’t feel forced or unnatural. Our denture and partial denture services are geared toward restoring and even improving the appearance of your smile.

Full and partial dentures are two types of removable artificial teeth used to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Dentures restore chewing, speaking and smiling abilities.

Restore Your Confidence
with New Full Dentures

Removable full dentures have been used successfully to restore smiles and self-esteem for many years. We value a relaxed, healthy, and beautiful smile just as much as you do here at Artistic & Family Dental Center. The goal of our full denture treatments is to restore your confidence and happiness by giving you back your beautiful smile.

Types of Full Dentures

Conventional Full Dentures

  • Designed after a patient’s gums have fully healed after tooth extraction.
  • It could take a few weeks to finish to make sure it fits perfectly.

Immediate Full Dentures

  • Made in advance and placed the same day the patient’s natural teeth are extracted.
  • Provide quick relief but may need adjusting as gums heal.

Implant-Supported Full Dentures

  • Dental implants ensure a permanent fit and improve stability and performance.
  • Help maintain jawbone density and provide a snugger fit.

Types of Partial Dentures

Cast Metal Partial Denture

  • Powerful and slimmer, making for a more comfortable fit.
  • Metal base with high-quality replacement teeth.
  • Designed and manufactured by an outside lab; turnaround time is two to three weeks.

Flexible Partial Dentures

  • Fabricated from pliable and supple materials for a comfortable, organic fit.
  • Designed to mimic the shade of natural gums.
  • Easily detachable and built in a single day at participating clinics

Acrylic Partial Denture

  • The least expensive selection.
  • Long-lasting and realistic in appearance, albeit rather chubbier.
  • Pink framework with a metal clasp for attachment to your natural teeth and gums.
  • Can usually be obtained the same day.

How Are Dentures Made?

Full dentures require a meticulous approach to create a natural fit and a pleasing aesthetic. The procedure is as follows:

Impression: To make a perfect fit for your dentures, we need to take a precise impression of your gums and any remaining teeth.

Model Creation: Dentures are custom made by first creating a wax model to test for comfort and aesthetics.

Denture Base: The acrylic resin used for the denture’s base is tinted to look like your gum tissue.

Artificial Teeth: Teeth made from resin or porcelain are connected to the base after careful consideration for function and appearance.

What is a Partial Denture?

A removable dental item, a partial denture fills in gaps left by missing teeth and helps restore chewing and speaking abilities to the jaw. These long-lasting and cozy appliances have a snug fit and a subtle appearance. Denture teeth can be created from resin or porcelain and are designed to look and feel just like your natural teeth. A partial plate custom-made to fit your mouth securely anchors your false teeth in place.

When Are Partial Dentures Used?

When lost teeth have created aesthetic or functional gaps in your smile or bite, partial dentures are the best solution. They protect your gums from drying out and help keep your jawbone strong, all of which contribute to better oral health. Besides making your grin more attractive, the benefits of a healthy bite include improved eating, speaking, and chewing abilities.

What are full dentures?

Dentures, also known as full dentures or complete dentures, are dental prostheses that may be taken in and out of the mouth to replace all of the teeth in the upper or lower jaw.

Are there different types of full dentures?

Several options exist for replacing missing teeth, including traditional dentures, instant dentures, and dentures secured to dental implants.
