Restoring the Shape of Your Smile

Missing teeth can cause numerous problems, including chewing issues and facial sagging which can make you look older than you are. 

Understandably, these obstacles may cause you to feel self-conscious in your everyday life, whether you are enjoying a meal with friends or posing for photos at events with family. 

Depending on your needs, your dentist may recommend full dentures, partial dentures or implant-supported dentures. These prosthetic teeth can replace teeth, gum and jaw tissue lost in the upper jaw, lower jaw or both. They are supported by the surrounding hard and soft tissues of your oral cavity. 

Often crafted from materials such as acrylic, porcelain or resin, dentures allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their natural facial profile and the shape of their smile. They also help them speak well and eat properly.

Replacing missing teeth is an essential step to maintaining oral health. If you have lost some or all of your natural teeth, dentures may be a suitable tooth replacement option. 

Types of Dentures

Dentures are prosthetic teeth that can replace one missing tooth, several teeth in a row or an entire jaw of teeth. Your dentist can help you determine the appropriate option. 

Why Choose Dentures?

Dentures are a reliable, proven method to restore the function and appearance of natural teeth. Your dentist may recommend this cost-effective tooth replacement option if you've lost teeth to dental injury or disease. 

Dentures are often recommended for patients with weaker jaws, since they require no surgery on the jaw bone, unlike dental implants. Instead, these tooth replacements can be secured with denture adhesive. 

Depending on the nature of your dental issue, dentures are often an ideal choice if only a few teeth remain. By being fitted for dentures, you'll prevent your remaining teeth from shifting, which can lead to more serious issues, such as gum disease.
