Dallas, TX Cosmetic Dentist Explains the Benefits of Polymer Dentures
Along with many other advances in modern dentistry, the design and materials used in dentures has improved significantly. The beauty of dentures provided
by the Dallas Dentures Dentist
are designed to be comfortable and functional. They are very similar in appearance
to natural teeth and can improve your smile and facial appearance.
What are Dentures?
A denture is a removable dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and
can even enhance your smile. Very detailed impressions (molds) and measurements are taken by our dentist
to create dentures that are custom-fit to your mouth.
Our dentures are crafted using a softer, flexible polymer rather than traditional rigid metal. Your dentures will be gently custom-fit to your mouth, ensuring
that they fit comfortably and securely enabling you to speak and eat with ease.
What are Dentures Made Of?
Patients have many options of materials to choose from that can affect the aesthetic results as well as the comfort level afforded the wearer. Today’s
polymer dentures offered by Dallas Dentures Dentist
are more flexible so they are naturally more comfortable
as well as being more natural-looking than plastic dentures.
For example, plastic dentures are very rigid resulting in soreness of the gums and cheek tissue. In addition to being rigid and uncomfortable, plastic
dentures are also less durable. Polymer dentures are somewhat more expensive, but most people do not mind paying the extra cost to gain the advantages
of polymer dentures.
How Long will Polymer Dentures Last?
Today’s polymer dentures are very durable appliances and will last many years. However, as with any dental appliance they may have to be remade, repaired,
or readjusted at some point in the future due to normal wear.
