Dentures Newport Beach CA
Using dentures to replace missing teeth is not only great for your oral health; it’s a great way to look and feel younger! Today, there are a variety of natural-looking and comfortable dentures for patients who need to replace missing teeth. Made of a gum-colored plastic resin or acrylic base and either resin or porcelain replacement teeth, dentures are custom designed to fit your mouth. The process of receiving dental care to get dentures may take a few months and several dental visits. In some cases, however, same-day dentures are also possible. With same-day dentures, the dentures are created right in the dentist’s office instead of at an offsite laboratory. Same-day dentures aren’t for everyone, though. If your dentures require a lot of customization, same-day dentures may not be right for you.
Full & Complete Dentures
If you have several teeth or all teeth missing on the upper or lower jaw, full dentures may be your best option. Your dentures will rest directly on your gums, firmly supported by your jaw and suctioned to your gums for a secure fit. Your new smile will be hand-crafted to enhance your appearance while restoring natural function.
Partial dentures, which can be either fixed or removable, are great for patients who have several missing teeth scattered along the upper or lower jaw. There’s no need to have your healthy teeth removed! Instead, you can enjoy a partial denture, designed to fit around them, creating a seamless look. Partials are smaller that complete dentures, but restore all of your missing teeth and your beautiful smile. Just as with your natural teeth, dentures require daily maintenance. With regular wear and tear, your dentures can last 5-7 years. During that time, you may need periodic denture relines to accommodate changes in the contours of your mouth.
