Using Dentures to Replace Missing Teeth Is Cost-Effective and Easy
Dentures are a very easy and cost-effective way to replace missing teeth. They can help to restore a person’s ability to eat food, and can restore facial appearance. Today’s modern dentures are nothing like your granny used to wear as they use teeth that are designed to look very natural, and the denture can be constructed so it doesn’t look too perfect and artificial. Dentures consist of an acrylic base that is gum coloured, and the acrylic comes in several different shades so it can be closely matched to your existing gum tissue.
The artificial teeth also come in lots of different designs and shapes and colours, and there are varying degrees of quality. Get cosmetic dentistry in Leeds City Dentalcare where dentures are use the very best quality teeth that are constructed in Liechtenstein. Some dentures will include a cobalt chrome framework that is designed to strengthen the denture without adding extra bulk.
Dentures can be made to replace a single tooth, or to replace every tooth in your mouth. Dentures that only replace a few teeth are called partial dentures, while those made to replace complete arches of teeth are called full dentures.
Attention to Detail Ensures Your Finished Denture Will Look and Feel Natural
The process for having a denture made and fitted is very straightforward but you will need to arrange quite a few appointments with Dr David Brown or another of our dentist at Leeds surgery. This is because it’s necessary to take precise impressions and measurements of your mouth before your denture can even be constructed. Initially your denture will be made using pink coloured wax to represent the acrylic base and this is used to support the denture teeth that will be used in the finished denture.
One of our dentists in Leeds will need to try in this wax denture to make sure it fits properly and that the teeth are in the correct position. They will also check that it restores your facial features to the correct dimensions and height. It’s really important to get this stage right, as the next step is to replace the wax with acrylic which cannot be so easily altered. Sometimes it might be necessary to send the wax denture back to our laboratory for alterations, and although this might seem laborious it really does pay dividends in the end.
The next step will be to have your denture fitted, and we may need to make some small adjustments to ensure it fits comfortably. It’s not unusual for it to require adjustments some days or even a week or two after the initial fitting, but these additional appointments are included in the cost of your denture.
