If you’ve lost some of your natural teeth, whether it is from gum disease or tooth decay, then dentures can replace your missing teeth and your smile.  Replacing your missing teeth will benefit your appearance and you will be able to speak more clearly.  Dentures can be made to resemble your natural teeth so that you won’t notice a change in your appearance. There are various types of dentures:

  • Plastic
  • Flexible
  • Chrome

Plastic Dentures

These are made of acrylic and are the least expensive to make but they fit against the teeth and gums and can contribute to tooth decay and gum disease if plaque is not removed daily. Plastic can replace some or all of the teeth.

Chrome Dentures

Chrome partial dentures are much stronger and lighter. As they are supported by the remaining teeth they stay in the mouth much better.
