How Dentures are Made?

The dentist will take the shape of the patient’s mouth and teeth. This is what will be used in the dental lab to make the denture. The dentist usually takes more than one mold of the gum to ensure that the final denture created is as accurate as the natural tooth and gum would be. Dentures created and applied at Smile Care Valencia are of high quality, and according to patients’ reviews they fit and look natural, almost real, on the gum.

Types of Dentures

There are three types of dentures Santa Clarita; temporary, partial and complete dentures. After the dentist examines the patient’s mouth and teeth, they will recommend the most appropriate dentures to use.

The choice will mainly depend on the number of teeth the patient wants to be restored or replaced. Temporary dentures are best for patients with just one or a few missing teeth. They last only a few months before they are worn out and are recommended for patients that would want a temporary solution to missing teeth as they await implants to fix the gaps. Complete dentures are recommended for patients that require a full set of dentures to replace all of their teeth.

The dentist will first remove the remaining teeth and take a mold of the patient’s gum. The patient will need about 8-12 weeks for the gums to heal and shrink. The dentures are then fixed in the gum where they fit perfectly. Partial dentures are recommended for patients with just a few teeth missing that wouldn’t require removal of the remaining teeth to create room for full dentures. The dentist will place a plastic base, that is similar to the patient’s gum, to hold the dentures. A metal framework will also be inserted to hold the dentures in place.
