Full & Partial Dentures in Allentown, PA
Your smile can light up a room, drawing people to you and giving you a sense of confidence. On the other hand, missing teeth can make you look and feel older, making it awkward and often embarrassing to interact with others.
Fortunately, updated periodontal treatments and wide access to fluoridated water allow people to keep their original teeth a lot longer. If you’ve taken proper care of your teeth throughout your lifetime, you may never need dentures, but what happens if you do? You’ll have a lot to think about – What type should you get? How are you going to feel with dentures? Will they look fake and unnatural? Would dental implants be a better choice?
The professional team at Evolve Dental Care is committed to helping you achieve a whole and healthy-looking smile. If missing teeth are a problem for you, we have many options, and dentures are one of the most popular.
Will My Dentures Look Natural?
Dr. Amir and Dr. Sunny are experts at creating natural-looking dentures using the most updated dental materials available. Modern dentures are fabricated from a lightweight acrylic material tinted to match the natural color of your gums. Our skill and attention to detail allow us to create dentures that look as close to natural teeth as possible.
Before we start the dentures process, we’ll talk to you about your expectations and how we can help you achieve your goals. We’ll work with you to find the right tooth shape, size, color, and positioning to bring out the best in your smile.
What Type of Denture Is Right for Me?
- Full or Partial Traditional Dentures: Traditional full or partial dentures are artificial teeth worn over your gums to replace lost teeth. Dentures placed at Evolve Dental Care are fabricated to the exact measurements of your mouth so they form a comfortable, secure seal with the gums. Even though traditional dentures are removable, we do everything possible to make sure they won’t shift or come loose while eating, speaking, or laughing.
- Implant-Supported Dentures: An implant-supported denture is secured in your mouth by dental implants. Dental implants are surgically placed in the jaw and allowed to fuse with surrounding bone and tissue. The dentures are attached to abutments that extend from the implants. This system offers the most comfortable and secure fit possible with dentures.
Will My New Dentures Fit Securely?
At Evolve Dental Care, we work with the highest quality labs to create dentures that are fully customized to our specifications. We'll work with you by trying in mock-ups of your new dentures until we're certain that you're completely satisfied with their fit, look, and feel.
Full upper dentures tend to be more secure than lowers because they offer more coverage, allowing for a more secure fit. Lowers tend to be less stable since they cover a smaller area and movement of the tongue can unseat the denture.
Stability is one of the biggest complaints among denture-wearers. If you’re concerned that this will be a problem for you, we’ll be happy to talk to you about securing your dentures with dental implants. Many of our patients now enjoy the security that stable implant-supported dentures offer.
