Dentures can be beautiful, and recent advancements have improved how they look naturally. They offer a cost effective alternative to patients that are not suitable for dental implants, dental crowns, porcelain veneers. At Preston Smiles, let our dentists understand your requirements and get results delivered as quick as possible.
Partial and full dentures are available at Preston Smiles and many materials on offer. Partial dentures replace a small number of teeth and help maintain the position of existing teeth. They’re suitable for people who still have some natural teeth left, helping to fill in missing teeth in the arch.
A full denture replaces an entire set of teeth of either upper or lower jaw to allow a person to restore function and aesthetics.
The initial consultation will determine the amount of teeth, size, shape, length and clasps if any that you wish. A discussion will also made in regards to the types of material offered. The base material can range from an acrylic, chrome-cobalt, titanium with either acrylic or porcelain teeth. Sometimes, it’s best to bring in an old photo so we can try to mimic to provide a natural look and feel.
Our dentists can outline the advantages and disadvantages of each material to help you choose the most suitable dentures for you. Eating with dentures is certainly a reality although this can be challenging to begin with. It can take several weeks before it feels comfortable to eat with dentures, but there are steps you can take to make this transition easier. Some suggestions include eating soft foods, cutting food up into small pieces, chewing slowly, and avoiding foods that are hot, sticky or sharp-edged.
Alternatives do exist; We can certainly provide implant retained dentures where full or partial dentures have not achieved the desired outcome.
We can offer consultations on planning or denture conversions into a locator retained denture or a fixed solution (All-on-4).
