The Changing Face of Dentures

If you still think of dentures as large sets of artificial looking false teeth sitting in a glass by the bed, have we got a surprise for you! Modern dentures are light, comfortable and amazingly lifelike and they can make a huge difference to the look of your smile, as well as quality of life and self-esteem.

About dentures

Dentures are a treatment used to replace missing teeth. The teeth are very hard-wearing and durable but they are susceptible to damage, injury and decay and dentures are used to replace teeth that have fallen out or been extracted as a result of infection, trauma or decay. There are different types of dentures available, including complete dentures, which are designed to replace an entire arch of missing teeth and partial dentures, which replace a few missing teeth. Partial dentures are designed to blend in with the colour and shape of your natural teeth.

Dentures are often associated with older people, but they can be used for patients of all ages.

What are the benefits of dentures?

Dentures can transform your life, especially if you have a large number of missing teeth. Dentures are designed to function like natural teeth and they will enable you to eat and drink without any problems and to speak clearly. They also restore the beautiful aesthetic of a natural, healthy looking smile, so you can look forward to smiling with confidence. Dentures also resume the function of the natural tooth and support the lips and cheeks, which creates a better overall facial aesthetic.

Dentures have come a long way and modern dentures are very natural looking. They are shaped and coloured to mimic natural teeth and they are much lighter and less cumbersome than they used to be. Modern styles are designed with comfort and convenience in mind and the aim is to achieve a perfect fit. For more information on denture treatment in Chelmsford contact us today.
