When you’re missing all or a significant number of your teeth, the best way to replace them may be with a partial or full denture. Custom-designed to your specific needs, a partial denture can fit around any healthy teeth that remain, helping prevent their loss while rebuilding your bite’s function and your smile’s appearance. For optimal esthetic results, dentures are typically crafted from lifelike porcelain and are supported by a discreet metal or acrylic base.
Despite being highly lifelike in appearance, dentures may not fully restore your biting and chewing power, nor can they replace the roots of the teeth you’ve lost. To improve the effectiveness of your restoration, we may recommend supporting your partial or full denture on a series of dental implants—root-like posts that are inserted into the jawbone to replace lost teeth roots.
