If you are looking for more natural and fuller smile, then dentures may be the perfect solution for you. Dentures are removable replacement teeth that are used to cosmetically cover areas where teeth have been removed. In the past, dentures looked quite a bit fake, often looking either too white or too straight. However, nowadays they look very similar to natural teeth.
There are actually two different denture types:
Full dentures are for patients who have have had every single one of their natural teeth removed.
Partial dentures are used when only some of the teeth have been removed. A metal frame that connects to your natural teeth attaches to your partial dentures to fill in the areas where teeth are missing.
Even though your dentures are fake teeth, you need to take care of them as if they are real. You will need to use a gentle cleanser to consistently brush your dentures. You will need to keep up consistent cleaning of your tongue, gums and remaining teeth as well. It is also necessary to keep dentures moist when they are not in use in order to prevent bacterial growth.
