Custom Fit Dentures
Tooth loss is a big deal. When you suffer tooth loss, your entire life is affected. In addition to deteriorating the quality of your smile, tooth loss affects how you eat and speak. It also affects the shape of your face, leading to skin sagging and wrinkle formation, issues that can age you well beyond your years. Dentures have long been the solution of choice for replacing missing teeth, and they are still a popular treatment today. Beyond Dental and Implant Center can help to restore your quality of life with custom fit dentures.
What are Dentures?
Dentures are a traditional treatment used to replace missing teeth. They have been in use for hundreds of years. Dentures today are very different from older styles, although the concept is still fairly similar. They are a removable prosthesis that consists of false teeth set into a rigid base that relies on your gums for support. Dentures can be used to replace a full arch of missing teeth, called full or complete dentures, or used to replace sections of missing teeth, called partial dentures.
Creating Your Custom Fit Dentures
Custom fit dentures are very different than older types of dentures. These dentures are designed to look much more realistic, and there is great attention to detail to ensure optimal aesthetic results. Custom fit dentures are made using porcelain teeth, which can be stained to perfectly mimic the natural teeth. In addition to being stained to match the color of your natural teeth, they also reflect light just like real tooth enamel. Porcelain is much stronger than the composite resin teeth that are frequently used and can be made in various shapes and sizes to provide you with a customized look just for you.
In addition to customizing your teeth, the base can also be customized. The base, which is made from hard acrylic, is available in many different shades, allowing us to choose a color that perfectly blends in with your natural gum tissue. It can also be made with ridging and texture to provide you with a much more realistic look and feel.
Your dentures are made from impressions of your mouth. Impressions are taken following the extraction of any unhealthy teeth that are still in your arch. These impressions are used to custom design your unique dentures. Once they are ready, we check them to ensure a proper fit and bite. If you are satisfied with the way that they look and feel, you leave with your brand-new teeth.
