Cosmetic Dentures & Dental Implants

Other Information

Unless your present dentures are ideal, we sometimes recommend the fabrication of new dentures along with implants. Implant fees do not include existing tooth removal, bone grafting, sinus augmentation, or sedation. We cannot quote accurate information regarding the possibilities for your treatment without a proper examination.

In the last 10 years, the advancement of Cosmetic Dentistry has enabled people to have the smile of their dreams. The same advances in technology are now available to denture wearers.

At your first appointment, our doctors will discuss your personal concerns and desires. We will take digital x-ray images and photographs. We will provide you with accurate estimates for your financial investment as well how much time will be required to complete your treatment. We can even show you the possibilities for the final appearance of your new teeth before treatment is even initiated!

Using new, life-like porcelain and composite technology, these artificial teeth mimic and improve upon mother nature. What makes a modern, ?cosmetic? denture different from a standard denture?

Our 4 Keys To Successful DenturesTooth Size and Shape ? Does the tooth size complement the face? Do the shapes of the teeth match the patient?s desires?

Tooth and Gum Color ? Natural, yet Cosmetic. A cheaper denture just looks fake. Quality denture teeth have a variety of shades in place for an enhanced appearance.

Tooth Position ? How are the teeth oriented? This is the big one. Do the teeth show too much or too little? Are the teeth set so the jaws are too close together? Are the positions of the teeth comfortable? This is what really takes a skilled dentist?s time to determine and get correct. This step is what separates and average denture from a great one.

Fit of the Denture to the Mouth – How does the denture fit? Modern materials can take a very accurate recording of the mouth. The denture should fit the mouth precisely. In some cases, due to the shape of the mouth or excessive bone loss, the denture fit will be mediocre at best. In these cases, Dental Implants should be considered.
