Dentures Q & A

What are dentures?

Dentures are replacement artificial teeth that are usually connected to a pink or gum-colored plastic base. Dentures are specially designed to replace missing teeth and support your lips, cheeks, and facial structure. Dentures can improve chewing, speaking, smiling, and more.

Dentures are typically made from acrylic resin or plastic. 

What types of dentures are available?

Premium Family Dental offers different treatment options for dentures, including:

  • Denture relines
  • Implant-supported dentures
  • Partial dentures

Your custom dentures are usually created by a qualified lab technician in a dental lab.

Standard dentures

Standard full dentures are a full set of upper and lower teeth typically derived from a pliable material. Standard dentures use suction to stay in place.

Partial dentures

Partial dentures are designed to replace a limited number of teeth rather than an entire set. Your remaining gums and teeth support your partial dentures.

Cosmetic dentures

Cosmetic dentures are typically made from a special acrylic base that helps the denture keep its shape over time. Cosmetic dentures are designed to look as natural and aesthetically beautiful as possible. Cosmetic dentures usually rest on or snap onto a dental implant.

Your dentist replaces your natural tooth root by surgically fusing a dental implant to your jawbone. Your dentist carefully attaches your new custom dentures onto your new dental implants.

Which type of denture is best for me?

During your visit to Premium Family Dental, your dentist explains your available options and helps you decide what’s best. You might only have a few missing teeth and choose partial removable dentures that attach onto your natural teeth.

If you need to replace all of your lower or upper teeth, you might opt for complete or full dentures.

You might have dentures with a metal framework and natural-looking clasps or connectors that attach to your teeth. To improve the fit of your new removable denture, your dentist might need to place crowns with special attachments on your natural teeth. Dental implants fused to your jawbone are a great option to stabilize and secure your beautiful new dentures as well.
