Cosmetic Partials and Complete Dentures

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and adjacent tissues. It is made of acrylic resin, sometimes in combination with various metals. There are two types of dentures: complete dentures and partial dentures. Complete dentures replace all the teeth while a partial denture fills in the spaces created by missing teeth and prevents other teeth from changing position.

Partial dentures are similar to complete dentures, except the plastic teeth and acrylic gums surround frameworks made of metal or flexible thermoplastic material. While the metal framework partial dentures will take five visits to place, the thermoplastic (Valplast) will take two to three appointments for final placement.

Advantages of Cosmetic Partials and Complete Dentures​

  • Improved self-confidence. The main point of getting dentures is to fill out all the empty spaces in your mouth. By doing so, dentures can help you regain the confidence that you once lost right around the same time you lost your teeth.
  • Little to no diet restrictions. Contrary to popular belief, dentures are durable enough to withstand almost as much punishment as regular teeth. What this means is that you won’t really be giving up your favorite food once you do get dentures. Better yet, you’d be able to eat them again now that all of your teeth are present!
  • No more speaking problems. It’s no secret that missing teeth can affect how you talk. Not to mention how you’re less likely to talk because of how conscious you are about your smile. Although it may take some time getting used to wearing dentures, they can eventually help fix all of your speaking problems.
