At White Center Smiles, we want you to be able to show off a full, beautiful smile. If you have missing or damaged teeth, dentures can restore your smile and make it easier to speak and chew.
Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth. They are made to closely match your natural teeth in shape, size, and color. Dentures can also prevent your facial muscles from sagging.
Conventional dentures are made after all the teeth have been removed and the mouth has had time to heal. The denture is fully removable and is custom made from impressions of your mouth. The flesh-colored base fits tightly over your gums.
Immediate dentures are placed immediately after all the teeth are removed. Dr. Osundeko will take measurements of your teeth and jaw before you have this done. They allow the convenience of never having to be without your teeth, but keep in mind you might need to come back to have them relined from time to time.
Partial dentures, sometimes called overdentures, are made to fit over teeth that are healthy enough to leave in. A metal framework creates the support for the artificial teeth that attach to your natural teeth. This is sometimes done with crowns to increase stability.
Implant-supported dentures work like regular dental implants, except that the rods placed in the jawbone work as an anchor for the entire denture instead of one tooth. The titanium posts fuse with your jawbone, increasing the strength of your teeth. Implants can also help decrease bone loss and improve overall oral health.
If you decide dentures are right for you, remember that taking care of them will help them last a long time. Our team can show you how to clean your dentures and keep them stain-free.
Whether you are interested in conventional dentures or implant dentures, we have the right option for you. We want you to face your day with confidence, from your clear speech to your glowing smile. You don’t need one more thing to worry about. Call us at White Center Smiles today for a consultation.
