Many people feel that opting for dentures means a lifetime of sacrifices in function and appearance, but dentures have improved dramatically over the decades and fit and look better than in the past. This makes them a good option for patients with missing teeth.
If you have missing teeth and you are weighing your options when it comes to tooth replacement, see if you believe some of the common myths, which might keep you from making the decision that works best for you.
Dentures Look False
Denture teeth actually look more realistic than ever because they come in a wide variety of colors and shades to match nearly everyone’s age and facial structure.
They are also made of high-quality materials that are both durable and incredibly lifelike.
Dentures Never Fit Properly
Depending on your bone structure and your oral health, we can create both full and partial dentures in our Southeast, TX dental office that feel comfortable both while you speak and eat.
In some cases, we may recommend that 4-6 dental implants anchor a complete denture to achieve a secure fit. This is usually for patients who have dainty or diminished bone structure.
People Will Know I Have Partial Dentures
When we design partial dentures, we do so with the goal of making them appear seamless with your natural teeth so that when you smile, no one will notice that you are wearing a partial denture. They come in a variety of materials: pink acrylic, metal, and flexible options.
