Maybe you’ve never thought about dentures as something to be excited about. But imagine new dentures bringing you newfound confidence and ease. Imagine looking forward to wearing them the way someone anticipating a beautiful smile makeover contemplates the upcoming changes in how they feel about themselves. Can you picture it? Dr. Dennis can provide you with a set of cosmetic dentures that have the subtle translucency and sparkle of real teeth at their most beautiful.
What are Cosmetic Dentures?
Cosmetic dentures are created using high-quality materials that have been developed as the art and science of dentistry has progressed. In the past, most dentures were made of acrylic, a material that was inexpensive and easy to work with. It also stained easily, wore down quickly, and could not reflect the beauty of natural teeth.
For replacement teeth, Dr. Dennis uses high-quality materials that have many of the qualities we find in natural teeth. They closely mimic the beautiful translucency we find in real teeth, and they reflect the color variation and gloss as well. In addition, they are stain and wear resistant.
The materials used to provide the gum-like base for dentures are also very important. Some lower-quality materials are not strong or resilient enough to maintain the precise fit they were designed for, so they prove to be less comfortable as well. Our goal is to improve your quality of life by creating beautiful dentures that are also as pleasant as possible to wear. And that starts with great materials and techniques.
The Difference Between Functional and Cosmetic Dentistry
Most dentists are drawn to the profession not only because it allows them to help people, but because they enjoy the practical aspects of the work. Like engineers, they like to keep the equipment—in this case, the teeth—in perfect working order. And that is exactly what they learn in dental school.
Very few dentists take the time to pursue advanced training in cosmetic dentistry, and the reason is simple. They’re not artistically inclined. Cosmetic dentists like Dr. Dennis, however, are passionate about learning the artistic aspects of their work. They take the technical skills they learned in dental school and add an artistic touch to create a beautiful result.
Your Cosmetic Dentures
There are several options available for your cosmetic dentures, including complete removable dentures, partial dentures, and implant-supported dentures, also called implant overdentures. No matter which solution ends up working best for you, Dr. Dennis will apply her artistic touch to your results.
