Toothloss is a reality many Americans face. And whether it’s due to decay, trauma, or periodontal disease, the loss of teeth is more than just a cosmetic problem, it’s a functional problem. When you’re missing teeth everything from the way you eat to the way you speak is negatively impacted. Add to that the cosmetic implications and you’ll likely end up suffering from low self-esteem and even depression.
Why do teeth impact appearance?
Aside from the obvious lack of teeth, your teeth also play a role in how your face is structured. When you are missing teeth your cheeks will begin to sag and your lips change shape. Pretty soon your face might resemble an empty bag that lacks any real shape.
When should I replace my missing teeth?
You should replace your missing teeth as soon as you can. The sooner you replace missing teeth the healthier surrounding teeth and gums will be. The long teeth are missing the more likely it is that surrounding teeth will shift. This will make replacing teeth much more difficult and could require more extensive treatment to make room for dentures or other prosthetics.
What are dentures?
Dentures are removable prosthetics that can be used to replace all of your teeth or just one tooth. These prosthetics are incredibly strong and look just like your natural teeth.
What are cosmetic dentures?
When we create cosmetic dentures we go through an extensive process that is used to create an attractive smile. Our goal is to create a set of dentures that look absolutely real so that you get the natural look you want. In fact, we can even add fake fillings to the dentures so the have a lifelike appearance.
One of the ways we achieve the look you’re looking for is through the use of photos of you with a full set of teeth. We’ll try to match the color, gum coloring, and even alignment.
We can also create partial dentures if you are only in need of a certain stretch of teeth being removed. The partial dentures we create can be adhered using an implant base or simple glue depending on your needs.
