Just because you wear dentures doesn’t mean that you can’t have a beautiful, natural looking smile. Dr. Williams will apply the same smile design principles to dentures that we use for all of our esthetic patients. This is possible because we work closely with the best dental lab and with Dr. Williams’ experience in both the dental and laboratory aspects of denture fabrication your new dentures will be custom designed to fit your perfect smile.
Most dentures are made of acrylic and can be fabricated two different ways.
- A conventional denture is made after all teeth have been extracted and the tissues (gums) have healed.
- An immediate denture is fabricated and inserted immediately after the teeth are extracted and the tissues are allowed to heal under the denture.
The teeth are made of plastic, porcelain or a combination thereof. Dentures can be fabricated to fit over endodontically treated teeth and a complete denture can be attached to dental implants to allow for a more secure fit of the appliance.
