Dentures are removable tooth prosthetics designed to look and function like natural teeth. Most dentures are composed of replacement teeth attached to an acrylic base that has the appearance of the gums. They are used to replace one or more missing and are available as partial or complete sets of teeth. Many patients choose dentures for tooth replacement if they are not candidates for dental implants or are looking for an option that is more affordable and budget friendly.

The teeth have been specifically made by skilled artisans who apply their skills to make the teeth in layers that allow the teeth to respond to different light conditions similar to natural tooth enamel. The teeth are made from cross-linked acrylics of very high quality that makes them resistant to excessive wear, chips, stain, and breakages. This high quality material maintains the natural shape of the teeth that aids in cutting and chewing foods properly.

FAQ: What should I expect when being fitted for dentures?
If you need one or more teeth removed, the process could take several months for the gums and bone to heal. An impression is then taken to fabricate your custom denture. Once your denture is ready, you can begin wearing them daily. Expect the first few weeks to be an adjustment period. Over time, you will adapt to the feel of your new dentures, as well as learn to manipulate your tongue and cheek muscles to keep it in place. You may experience some soreness or irritation during the initial adjustment period. If the denture does not feel that it is fitting properly, we can always adjust them for you at any time.
