What Are Dentures?

Dental bonding is a fast and inexpensive way to correct any damage or imperfections with you may have with your teeth. This procedure is a wonderful alternative to dental veneers. Since dental bonding can be done in one visit at our dental office, it is one of the most popular forms of dental cosmetology.

Dentures can help:

  • Maintain facial shape
  • Aid in the comfort of eating
  • Restore a great looking smile
  • Regain the loss of pronunciation that can come along with tooth loss
  • Regain confidence

The Denture Procedure

The type of procedure that your specific dentures will require depends on what type of dentures you and our dentist choose.

Step 1: Before the dentures are placed, patients will have the old tooth or teeth completely extracted from your mouth.

Step 2: You and our dentist will decide what type of dentures would be best for you as there are a few different options to choose from.

Step 3: With removable replacement dentures, the process of measuring and fitting may take place over the course of a few weeks and a few visits.

Step 4: When the dentures are finally completed, they will be fitted once more and tested to ensure that they do not slip or cause any pain or other complications such as speech difficulties.

Permanent dentures are also known as dental implants and are quite different and are much more natural than the removable type. The procedure for this type of dentures is a bit more invasive and complicated, however, the permanent result can be well worth the extra cost and effort.
