Dentures are removable tooth prosthetics designed to replace a patient’s missing teeth. They consist of a gum-colored base made of acrylic resin or metal and artificial teeth made from acrylic resin or porcelain. Dentures are made to match a patient’s smile and are designed to look and feel as natural as possible.

TYPES OF CUSTOMIZED DENTURES
Traditional dentures are made from a gum-colored acrylic resin base and artificial teeth. They are secured to your gums with denture adhesives or suction. Just like your natural teeth, you should brush your dentures daily.
REMOVABLE PARTIAL DENTURES
Removable partial dentures are an affordable option for patients who are missing only some of their teeth. Partial dentures are made out of a plastic base that mimics the appearance of gum tissue and a metal framework that connects the denture to the natural teeth. The plastic base is designed to look like natural gums, and the metal framework is designed to look like natural teeth.
FIXED PARTIAL DENTURES
Fixed partial dentures are a type of dental restoration that can replace one or several teeth in the dental arch. Fixed partial dentures are cemented in place and can only be removed by a dentist. Partial dentures can be made from a variety of materials, including metals, ceramics, and acrylic.
A custom implant-supported denture can work wonders for your smile. This type of restoration uses dental implants to anchor a full arch of replacement teeth.
- They support up to 30 pounds of biting and chewing force.
- They offer unmatched stability.
- They look and feel just like natural teeth.
- They are removable so that you can clean them just like your natural teeth.
HOW ARE CUSTOM DENTURES FABRICATED?
We offer customized dentures so that they fit your mouth to perfection. Digital impressions of your mouth will be taken, which act as a reference for fabricating your dentures. This data will be shared with a dental laboratory, where the dentures will be made in a couple of weeks. Once done, we will place them in your mouth and ensure they fit perfectly.
