Missing teeth can be a real drag. Not only can it look bad, it can have negative effects on various aspects of your oral health. When you’re missing a few teeth, the surrounding teeth that remain experience excessive stress, wear and tear.
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Two types of dentures are available – complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the natural teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. Both can be made to resemble your natural teeth.
Dentures are usually made out of a metal framework to hold their shape. On top of that metal base, plastic is placed on top to be the false gums. This plastic is often flesh-colored or pink so that it can look like real gum tissue. Then the false teeth themselves are made from ceramic or porcelain. This will provide a strong appliance that will look and function perfectly!
