WHAT ARE DENTURES?
Dentures are prosthetic devices constructed for patients that are missing teeth to help them chew food, improve their speaking habits, and improve their facial aesthetics. When patients choose not to replace their missing teeth the open spaces can lead to a sunken, collapsed appearance to the lower face. By replacing the teeth, this malformation can be corrected or prevented and the patient’s mouth is supported. Dentures are made to replicate the gum tissue naturally while providing the proper structure and support for lips, cheeks, and face.
Dentures for aesthetic purposes are custom fit for comfort and enhance overall facial features. In addition to the fit, the color of the dentures and the natural differences in tooth shape and size can be adjusted based on each individual’s age, gender, and unique facial qualities.
