What are dentures?
Dentures are replacements for missing teeth. Whether you are missing only two teeth, all of the natural teeth, or anywhere in between, dentures can be a good choice for restoring your smile. Dentures are fabricated from materials that mimic the look and feel of natural teeth and gum tissue, so you can feel confident that your new smile looks beautiful and natural. We offer two main types of dentures in Kimball, Michigan: full dentures and partial dentures.
What is the difference between full and partial dentures?
The difference between full and partial dentures is how many teeth they replace. Also referred to as complete dentures, full dentures are used to replace a full arch of missing teeth in the upper and/or lower jaw. Partial dentures are used to replace multiple missing teeth when some natural teeth remain. Both full and partial dentures are removable, so you can remove them multiple times per day for cleaning. Full and partial dentures can improve your smile by:
- Restoring lost facial volume
- Enhancing the appearance of your smile
- Improving your ability to properly eat, speak, and chew
