Full dentures are for patients who need to replace most of their teeth. There are several different styles available, but the most common type of full dentures can be created utilizing same day service. We at Seattle Dentures can help you and size your teeth. Based on your current teeth and smile, we will create a set of dentures in the same size and color as your mouth. Full dentures are custom fit to the patient.
If you only need to replace one or two teeth, you may want to consider getting partial dentures. There are two main options for partial dentures — a cast metal partial denture, and the acrylic partial denture. Cast metal partial dentures tend to be preferred by most patients, but they are pricier than the other partial denture options. Acrylic partial dentures are more affordable for most patients, but they are not always as comfortable. Some patients complain that these dentures are bulky.
While customized dentures can be a more expensive option for many patients, it is sometimes the route that patients prefer. Customized dentures are made of more durable material than standard full dentures, and they are specifically designed and crafted just for the patient. If you are younger and will be wearing your dentures for a longer period of time, you might want to consider this option. Customized dentures are known to last longer.
If you already have dentures and are having an issue, you might want to consider denture repair. Denture repair services include repairing cracked or broken dentures, or helping to adhere the metal better to the denture. Cracks can be reinforced so that they will not break again, or a new denture can be created for you. Call us at Seattle Dentures to discuss your repair options.
