Complete Dentures and Cosmetic Dentistry
For someone who is in the process of losing their natural teeth or has already lost their natural teeth, complete dentures can be the ideal replacement to improve one’s quality of life. Complete dentures are a removable prosthesis that adheres to the gum in order to reveal a full, beautiful smile despite having little to no teeth.
Facts about Dentures:
Ultimately, dentures can help improve self-esteem and confidence. In order to fully cover complete dentures, we’re covering the most commonly asked questions about dentures.
- Complete dentures are replacement teeth that are custom-made to fit into a plastic base
- The base is made to closely match the color of a person’s gums for a natural look
- If there are still some natural teeth, they will be removed before the dentures are placed.
Types of Dentures
There are three primary types of dentures: Conventional complete dentures, implant-supported complete dentures, and immediate dentures. Ask your cosmetic dentist which option is right ones for you.
Am I a Candidate for Complete Dentures?
The ideal patient for complete dentures is someone that has already lost all of their natural teeth or someone that has a few remaining teeth. If a patient has a few remaining teeth, a cosmetic dentist may recommend extracting these teeth and moving forward with a set of complete dentures.
Patients that do not wish to remove their remaining teeth will be recommended to partial dentures as these molds are designed to fit around your natural teeth (keep in mind this option is more expensive). If you’re considering dentures, please schedule a visit with our cosmetic dentists in Summerville to discuss your options and determine which route is right for you.
How real will complete dentures look?
Complete dentures can be made to look like your natural teeth or a better version of your old teeth. If you wish to retain your natural teeth’s look, it’s highly recommended to show your cosmetic dentist images of your teeth before. This will enable the dentist to anticipate and mold your dentures to your previous smile considering teeth size, color, spacing, etc. Remember, you can customize your smile – explain how you want your smile to look with your new set of complete dentures.
