Modern dentures have changed drastically from the first ones devised centuries ago. The advancements in dental prosthetics extend to dentures, with more comfortable, functional and natural-appearing options for those requiring teeth replacement. Dentures are wonderful for those who are not good candidates for dental implants, offering an affordable and accessible option for replacing some teeth or for a full mouth restoration. At Carrington Square Dental, we are happy to offer our patients with missing teeth beautiful dentures at our Waxhaw dental center in North Carolina.
If all your teeth are gone or you only have a few teeth left, complete dentures may be a suitable option to restore your smile. Complete dentures include an upper and lower arch that are customized to fit your gums and mouth. For many people who have been without their complete smile for years, receiving their dentures is a wonderful experience. In most cases, the dentures are cosmetically better than their natural teeth, as they are completely straight, white and beautiful. After an initial adjustment period, dentures are very functional and comfortable for chewing most foods and improve support for the facial tissues. Most people look younger and feel more confident with their newly restored smile, thanks to complete dentures.
For those who still have many of their natural teeth, partial dentures are a cost-effective option to restore missing teeth. Partial dentures have brackets that attach to the existing teeth to snap the prosthetic in place. Partial dentures improve the aesthetics of the smile while providing better function for eating and speech. The denture is customized to match the color and form of the existing natural teeth for a blended appearance. Like complete dentures, the partial is removed at night for cleaning and inserted during the day to restore teeth for eating, speaking and appearance.
Dentures come in a variety of options and price ranges that can fit your needs and budget.
