What are Complete Dentures?
Complete dentures are custom-molded prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth on the upper or lower jaw. They are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity, and are removable. Complete dentures are normally secured in place with natural suction, ensuring the utmost comfort. All the materials we use to make our dentures are made in Germany.
Complete Dentures Can Be Broken Down Into Two Components:
Artificial teeth restore the appearance of natural teeth, and help you chew and bite food as you did prior to tooth loss or extractions.
This is the part of the denture that is made of acrylic. It acts as the foundation for artificial teeth and restores the defective soft and hard tissues
Benefits of Complete Dentures? Many!
There’s a reason why complete dentures are the most popular option among our patients:
Our Complete Denture Package Options
The standard denture is our most basic, and economical option. Compared to our more upgraded and personalized denture options, this one has a limited number of teeth molds and shades. The standard teeth molds are composed of a softer layer, meaning the denture teeth can wear down faster, requiring replacement sooner. Our Standard denture teeth molds typically last 4-5 years, providing short-medium term use.
With personalized dentures, we have access to a broader selection of teeth molds and shades, allowing you to choose from higher quality teeth to get a desired smile that suits your facial structure.
As well, the teeth are composed of a much denser material for higher durability and greater chewing capabilities. Our personalized denture is the highest quality denture that we offer, creating an extremely natural appearance for all those that pursue this option.
These dentures are high impact, stain and wear resistant. Even more, the denture base is custom tinted to naturally blend in and match your mouth, and smile. Suited for long term use, can last up to 10 years or more.
