Am I a candidate for dentures?
Just about anyone who is missing a few or all of their teeth is a good candidate for dentures. At our Fairfax dental office, we customize natural-looking full and partial dentures to restore function and improve your dental and facial appearance.
If you are missing a few teeth, we can create a partial denture that fits in with your existing teeth, kind of like a jigsaw puzzle! Partial dentures clip onto your existing teeth to hold them in place.
If most or all of your teeth are damaged or missing, you are a good candidate for full dentures. Many people are disappointed when they hear they need dentures because they don’t want a fake-looking smile.
But today we have access to updated materials and state-of-the-art technology that allows us to create a set of dentures that look as close to natural teeth as possible.
An exciting part of the process is the planning phase where you will help us decide on the final look of your new dentures. We have control over every detail, down to the shape, size, color, and position of the artificial teeth in a comfortable acrylic base. The result is a denture that improves your smile and your quality of life.
If you are interested in a more permanent solution, we can combine implants with either full or partial dentures that stay in place and don’t slip or move when you least expect it.
