The loss of multiple teeth impacts so many aspects of our daily lives that most of us take for granted. For example, you may have trouble enjoying an evening out at your favorite restaurant when you can't order certain foods because chewing is painful. Or, maybe you feel self-conscious about attending a birthday party for your friend because you're embarrassed about the gaps in your smile.
Whatever the case may be, you should know that there are excellent solutions for restoring lost teeth so you can reclaim your smile. Here's what you should know about full and partial dentures in Houston, TX.
How a Partial Dentures Replaces Missing Teeth
If you've lost a few teeth, but still have many healthy ones remaining, a partial denture can be an excellent solution for your smile. Like a puzzle piece, we make a partial to fill in the gaps in your smile with artificial teeth attached to a removable appliance. Your partial uses clasps on healthy teeth to stay securely in place. It is customized to seamlessly blend with your smile so that no one will ever know you were missing teeth.
How a Full Denture Restores Beauty and Function to Your Smile
If the time has come to restore all of your teeth, a full denture can do the job. Designed to look like your natural teeth, we shade today's dentures to complement your skin tone and customize it to your facial structure. The excellent fit keeps your denture in place, and over time you'll regain the full function of eating and chewing as you learn to eat with your new teeth. Best of all, you'll instantly start enjoying your new smile!
