TYPES OF DENTURES
We offer temporary dentures to patients undergoing cosmetic dentistry procedures or waiting for dental implants or bridges. These natural-looking dentures are secured with a metal wire retainer and can be easily removed. Please note that temporary dentures are meant for short-term use and will require replacement.
When only a few teeth are missing, partial dentures are a suitable solution. These dentures have a plastic base that matches your gum color and a metal framework for stability. Unlike full dentures, partial dentures rely on the presence of natural teeth. We provide consultations to help you decide between partial dentures and permanent cosmetic dentistry options.
Complete dentures are specifically designed to fit your mouth and provide a comfortable and natural-looking smile. With advancements in technology, complete dentures now offer enhanced comfort, as they restore your ability to bite, chew, and speak with confidence. They are custom-made to match the shape and color of your natural gums and teeth, giving you a seamless and lifelike appearance.

HOW ARE DENTURES MADE?
To get dentures, a dental appointment is necessary. During the appointment, our dentist in Glenn Dale will examine your gums and remaining teeth to determine the suitability of dentures and the appropriate type for you. Impressions of your teeth and gums will be taken to facilitate the creation of dentures in a dental lab. Multiple molds or impressions may be needed to assess your jaw’s functionality and movement. The dental lab will then craft a set of dentures that appear natural and fit perfectly. For a more detailed understanding of the process, we recommend scheduling a consultation with our dental team.
BENEFITS OF DENTURES
Dentures offer convenient tooth replacement for patients in Glenn Dale. Whether you need a full or partial set, dentures provide a non-invasive solution without the need for surgery. Temporary dentures can be fitted immediately, offering a quick and easy option. However, if you prefer a more natural feel, cosmetic dentistry procedures may be worth considering. Contact us to explore the benefits of dentures and discuss the best tooth replacement option for you.
NEGATIVES OF DENTURES
Drawbacks of Dentures
One challenge of dentures is that they don’t provide the same natural feel as real teeth. Patients often acknowledge that while dentures are functional, they require separate care and maintenance. Unlike other cosmetic dentistry procedures, dentures can remind you that you have a prosthetic appliance. Although modern techniques have improved their comfort and stability, dentures can still become loose during eating or speaking. If you’re facing this issue, contact us to schedule a consultation and explore potential solutions.
