Restore Your Beautiful Smile

Whether you’ve lost a handful of teeth or all of your teeth over the years, it doesn’t mean you should settle for an incomplete smile. Not only can you improve your appearance with dentures, but you can prevent health problems often associated with tooth loss. Some of these problems include neighboring teeth shifting into the empty space and reduced diet (especially for those missing an entire arch). The good news is dentures in Dallas are more lifelike than ever before and work to replace missing teeth affordably. To get your custom denture created, contact any of the expert prosthodontists at Dallas Esthetics today!

Who is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

The denture you choose will depend on how many teeth you’re currently missing. Of course, patients will need to have healthy gum tissue and a healthy jawbone to properly wear a denture. If you’re only missing one or two teeth, then your dentist may recommend a dental bridge over a denture. If you’re missing multiple sections of teeth, a partial denture should suffice. If you need either a single arch or both arches replaced, then a full denture will work best.

The only way to know for sure which denture is right for you is to schedule a consultation with a dentist in Park Cities and University Park! They’ll work with you to make sure that your new denture fits comfortably. They’ll also help you maintain the denture for many years to come. Contact us today!

Types of Dentures

Dentures are removable prosthetics designed to replace lost teeth comfortably and naturally. Whether you choose a full or partial denture, both devices are created from a flesh-colored acrylic base that fits over your gums. Of course, we also offer a third type of denture: implant-retained. To learn more about each, keep reading!

Partial Dentures

Are you missing several teeth throughout your mouth? Maybe you’re missing a few teeth consecutively. In both cases, a partial denture can restore the look, health, and function of your smile. With a gum-colored base and custom-made prosthetic teeth, this restoration will stay securely in place with discreet metal clasps.

Full Dentures

Full dentures, on the other hand, are designed specifically for patients who are missing an entire arch of teeth or don’t have any of their natural teeth left. We’ll customize every facet of your restoration to ensure it looks good, feels great, and can be held in place with natural suction (or denture adhesive, if needed).

Implant Dentures

If you’re interested in restoring your smile to the fullest extent, then schedule an appointment with us to see if you’re a candidate for implant dentures. If you are, then we can secure your restoration in place with strategically placed dental implants, which stimulate your jawbone, preserve your youthful face shape, and can last for three decades or more with proper care.

The Benefits of Dentures

There are several noteworthy benefits, including:

  • Dentures are custom-made for each patient
  • Compared to other tooth-replacement solutions, dentures are cost-effective
  • With proper care, dentures can last for a decade or more
  • Once you’ve adjusted to wearing dentures, eating and speaking will be far easier than before

Dentures Aftercare

Denture care is essential to making them last as long as possible. Full and partial dentures can crack or break if dropped into your sink while cleaning. Therefore, you should always clean your dentures with a towel in the sink or fill the sink with water beforehand to cushion any drops. Brush your dentures daily to remove plaque and food debris. Keep them in cool water or denture cleanser when not in use. This will prevent them from changing shape and becoming ill-fitting. Never use hot water as this can permanently warp them. Furthermore, it’s still important to brush your gums, natural teeth, tongue, and palate before and after wearing your dentures. Brushing works to remove plaque and stimulate your oral tissue.
