If you are missing several or all of your teeth, you may be a good candidate for dentures. Dentures restore the function of your teeth and the appearance of our smile. Dentures can also correct facial features affected by missing teeth.
Dentures are designed to replace missing teeth, and are worn by millions of Americans. Technological advancements have resulted in dentures that are lightweight and mimic the appearance and feel of natural teeth. Most dentures are made from a combination of metals and synthetic material, such as acrylic resin. We welcome you to contact Chalfont Dentistry today for more information on dentures and to schedule your consultation at our office.
Types of Dentures
Dentures and generally classified as either partial or full dentures.
Partial dentures are designed to replace a small section of teeth and help prevent existing healthy, natural teeth from shifting position. Partial dentures are prepared in much the same way as full dentures and are recommended when only a few teeth are missing. Full dentures generally replace an entire set of teeth, such as upper and lower dentures.
