Livingston Dentists Explain Denture Options

Dentures are a great way to bring your mouth back to life after the loss of all or some teeth. Your Livingston dentists, Drs. David Silverstrom and Gary Silverstrom, can provide you with complete or partial dentures depending on your needs. Our team customizes dentures to fit your mouth. This not only allows for great functionality, but an aesthetically pleasing look.The Benefits of DenturesChewing and speaking properly are just two of the benefits, but dentures serve a cosmetic purpose as well. Tooth loss can dramatically change your appearance by causing your cheeks to look sunken. Dentures, which your dentist will secure directly to the gums, will give your face a more defined look, which will cause you to appear younger and more vivacious.When choosing between acrylic and porcelain dentures, it is important to consider your budget and your overall desired results. While plastic dentures are inexpensive, the porcelain options are stronger and allow light to pass through just as actual teeth do. This gives your mouth a more natural look and feel.What to ExpectCreating dentures that perfectly fit your mouth can be a lengthy process. During your first appointment, your dentist will take impressions of your mouth and measure your jaws. Doing this gives him a good idea of how your jaws should fit together.Next, your dentist will create models, wax forms and plastic patterns. You will try these models out to see which works best for your mouth. Finally, he will make sure the color, shape and fit are right, and the final denture will be cast. Once you have your dentures, your dentist will assess for any discrepancies and make minor adjustments if needed.Contact Your Livingston DentistsTrying to decide if full or partial dentures are right for you?
