They function as the natural teeth and fit tightly over the gums to eliminate potential problems caused by gaps. These prosthetics are created in shape, size and colour to mimic your teeth to make your smile as natural as possible.
Dentures can be made of a variety of different materials, including metal-free ones that may feel more comfortable to wear.
Conventional dentures are removable, but some of the designs rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants. Before fitting your dentures, your dentist will remove your natural teeth and take impressions of your mouth to design your dentures for a comfortable fit.
Dentures may feel a little strange at first, but it is normal, and it takes some time for the mouth, tongue and facial muscles to get used to them. Making regular dentist appointments after the dentures are fitted can help to maintain them in good condition.
