Prosthetic Dentistry in Santa Ana
A denture is a removable plate or frame holding one or more artificial teeth. There are several types of denture materials ranging from cast metal, to acrylic, flexible and total natural. They can be made to resemble your natural teeth. When you lose all your teeth, dentures can be made to improve the look of your smile.
When it comes to deciding which type of denture is best for you, talk to your dentist. Acrylic dentures are often most affordable, but they tend to feel more bulky. Flexible partials are made from special materials that give you added comfort and fit. Cast metal partial dentures are stronger, less bulky and offer a great fit. Generally having a denture made can take anywhere from 3-4 appointment visits.
