When it comes to maintaining a beautiful smile and ensuring optimum functionality, the right pair of dentures can be a game changer. Whether you’ve lost teeth due to age, trauma, or disease, dentures are a time-tested solution – and with modern technology, they’re more comfortable and natural-looking than ever. But with various types available, how do you choose the perfect fit? Our dental experts at Yardley Dental Arts are here to guide you.
Before making a decision, it’s essential to understand the different types of dentures available.
Dentures that don’t fit properly can lead to sores and infections. It’s paramount to work with our expert dentist at Yardley Dental Arts to get a customized fitting. Dentures that are created with your unique smile in mind don’t just enhance the appearance of your smile – they also help you speak, bite, and chew as you normally would with natural teeth.
Quality dentures are made from durable materials like acrylic or porcelain. While acrylic is lightweight and more comfortable, porcelain offers a more natural appearance but may wear down natural teeth if they come in contact. Discuss with your dentist which material would be best suited for your needs. Additionally, think about maintenance. All dentures require regular cleaning to prevent bacterial buildup, but some might need more meticulous care.
One of the primary concerns for many is how natural the dentures will look. Modern dentures come in various shades of white, allowing you to select a color that matches your remaining teeth or gives you the desired appearance. If you are getting partial dentures, they can be matched to the shade of your natural teeth.
Dentures vary in cost based on the type, material, and customization level. While you shouldn’t compromise on quality or fit, it’s wise to discuss the cost implications with your dentist. Some dental insurances also cover a portion of the expenses, so remember to explore those options.
New dentures can feel strange or slightly uncomfortable initially. There might be an adjustment period as your mouth gets used to them. Discuss any concerns with your dentist to ensure you’re not mistaking an ill fit for a regular adjustment.
