See How Our Dentures Can Improve Your Life
Well, dentures, especially upper dentures, can really help people over the years let their teeth go either with gum disease or just tooth decay, and they have a lot of unsightly fillings or even unsightly decay. If it gets to that point where we have to take the teeth out, whether all of them or just some of them and place a denture, you know, they do real good jobs with making dentures look good. Everybody’s whitening their teeth, so even the older folks are going around with some nice white dentures if they need them. And it’s not looking unnatural because a lot of people have white teeth these days. And the partials that we use now, they’re more flexible and they don’t have any metal showing. You used to see a lot of metal on partials, and we use partials here that are tooth-colored as well as gum colored. They blend right in with their teeth, and they don’t change over time, which is what I like. The metal ones, the clasp that hold onto the tooth will bend and become loose, and I’m finding that these not only look better, but 10 years later, they’re still holding up in there.
