If you’ve lost some or all of your natural teeth, either from tooth decay, injury or periodontal disease, dentures can easily replace those missing teeth, restore your smile and also restore your confidence.
Partial or Full Dentures? Full dentures are required if have lost all (or most) of your teeth. Partial dentures can be used when some teeth are still present and healthy (or can be brought back to health). We will do everything possible to keep your natural teeth and work with dentures to fill in the gaps.
Acrylic Dentures These can be used as temporary dentures until you have other work done (implants and/or bridges) or be a more long term option to replace missing teeth. The acrylic bases work extremely well. They are lightweight and easy to repair; conversely, however, they are more prone to damage from general use. This means that in order to create a sturdy acrylic denture you will need a thicker base. This results in a bulkier design, which can affect your speech and also your taste sensation.
Cobalt Chrome Dentures Compared to acrylic dentures, cobalt chrome (metal alloy) framework dentures are superior. The acrylic teeth (and gum) are set on the framework. These are not only strong and durable, but they also take up far less space. In terms of comfort and looks, you can’t beat this material. They may cost a little more, but you’ll get a product that will last much longer and look far more attractive.
