Cosmetic Dentistry Laboratory Explains Denture Options September 15, 2017

Cosmetic Dentistry Laboratory Explains Denture Options, Ewa, Hawaii

Dentures are a fast and affordable method of tooth replacement that’s customized to your needs. A dentist will make an impression to create a mold of your mouth and send it to a dental laboratory that will craft your artificial teeth. A cosmetic dentistry lab is part technology and part artistry; their skilled professionals design realistic, custom dentures based on your mouth dimensions and tooth height, width, and color. They create two primary denture versions: complete and partial.

Complete Dentures

Dentures Aiea HIWhen most people think of dentures, they imagine a set of false upper and lower teeth. Full dentures are needed when a dental patient no longer has permanent teeth or they’re in poor condition. Complete dentures are an entire row of artificial teeth designed to fit along your gum line. Some recipients might require only an upper or lower plate, while others need both.

Complete dentures are removable, and you affix them to your gums with a temporary bonding material. A lab will supply a conventional set, which is created up to six weeks after teeth removal so the gums have time to heal, or immediate dentures, which are made before extractions are performed so the patient won’t have to go without teeth. 

You can choose to have your new dentures look like your teeth or completely change the appearance of your smile. Dental labs can produce a range of styles to suit each person’s appearance goals and budget. 

Partial Dentures

When people don’t need an entire set of replacement teeth, partial dentures are an excellent alternative. Whether you’ve lost permanent teeth due to injury or decay, partial dentures will fill in the gaps in your smile. A dental lab technician will carefully create realistic-looking replacements that match the color and shape of your teeth and attach them to a plastic framework that blends with your gum tissue. Partial dentures, whether removable or cemented to neighboring teeth, are an excellent choice for people whose remaining teeth and gums are healthy.
