He will even work with you old photographs to make your new dentures resemble your natural teeth! The result is dentures that are comfortable and look great – dentures that actually enhance your appearance.
What are dentures?
Dentures are a prosthetic device that is used to replace missing teeth. Some of the terms you might hear when discussing dentures with your Elmhurst dentist are:
Partial dentures are designed to act as placeholders to fill the spaces left by missing teeth. They are an effective aesthetic solution but also perform the important function of preventing surrounding teeth from drifting into the empty space.
Complete dentures are used when all of your teeth are missing.
Immediate dentures are formed and ready to be placed as soon as the patient has all their teeth removed. This eliminates the need for the patient to go without teeth while waiting for their mouth to heal after teeth are removed.
Conventional dentures are placed only after the patient’s gums have been allowed to heal after teeth are removed.
Having dentures placed usually requires several visits. The Westchester denture dentist starts by taking impressions and measurements of your teeth to ensure a comfortable fit and natural appearance. The dentures will be fit and adjusted over the next few visits to achieve the perfect fit and natural look you are comfortable with.
