Dentures Don’t Have to Look Like Traditional “False Teeth”!
Patients can now look forward to getting natural-looking dentures that don’t look like traditional false teeth! Gone are the days when dentures look like fake teeth.
Experienced dentists can now create beautiful, healthy-looking dentures that enhance your facial appearance. Actually, there are a few types of dentures offered, and they all have attractive aesthetic qualities.
Complete Dentures (Conventional or Immediate)
- Conventional dentures can be placed within 8-12 weeks after teeth have been extracted, whereas immediate dentures are fabricated beforehand so they can be placed in position shortly after the teeth are removed.
- Each type of denture has pros and cons, though.
- There are times when the results can look fake, and patients may be left with the “sunken-in” appearance (when the lower part of the face looks collapsed) that is characteristic of some denture-wearers.
Removable Partial Dentures
- This type of denture can be removed when needed.
- A partial fills in the gaps where missing teeth were located, and it also prevents other teeth from moving. The pink-colored base is attached to a metal base that holds the denture into place in your mouth.
- Partials are sometimes chosen when one or more teeth remain in the lower and upper jaw.
- Economy dentures tend to be the most cost-effective type of denture. They are the most generic form of denture, which means that they do not sit comfortably or securely in your mouth.
- Patients who choose economy dentures typically wear denture adhesive to secure the fit as much as possible.
- Economy dentures tend to look fake when the patient wears them, too.
