Cosmetic Dentures & Partial Dentures
For many patients with missing teeth, dentures or partial dentures can be a great solution for enabling them to eat and speak more easily, additionally offering lip and cheek support for a more attractive smile. Regular home maintenance and adjustments in the office are sometimes necessary and continuously provide a functional bite and natural-looking smile.
The procedure for producing dentures can vary, but it usually involves 4 steps:
- An impression is taken of the patient’s mouth which is then used to create the denture base
- A wax replica (wax-up) of the final denture is created and then tried on the patient
- The wax-up is modified with any necessary changes to the fit, color, shape, and and teeth placement
- The patient tries on the final denture and any necessary further adjustments are made
