If you are facing dentures, it does not have to mean the end of a beautiful and functional smile. Fortunately, dentures have dramatically improved over the last few decades and now provide patients with greater comfort and dramatically improved esthetics.

Here Are 3 Differences in Today’s Dentures

Today’s dentures are better than ever. Here are some of the ways they have improved.

More Natural Appearance

Denture teeth used to look bog, boxy, and seemed to only come in a too white shade that gave away their wearers. Because most people do not want to advertise that they wear dentures, it is important to make sure they look natural.

When designing dentures, we take a number of things into account:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Hair Color
  • Skin tone
  • Patient preference
  • Facial shape

We can discuss options with you so you end up with a result that you love and that looks natural.

Greater Knowledge about Jaw Function

Recent decades have advanced dentistry in so many ways. A comprehensive understanding of the relationship between your teeth and jaws makes denture fabrication more accurate.

It is important to the fit and function of your denture that you have a comfortable bite. We use digital imaging, bite analysis, and dental impressions to design your dentures before we have them created.

Implant-Retained Dentures

If you have a small mouth, narrow palate, or if you just find it hard to keep your dentures in place, we can help. We create dentures in our Monroe Township, NJ that we secure in place with four or more dental implants. Your dentures can lock into place and only unlatch when you release them for cleaning and maintenance.

This gives patients the confidence to eat many different foods without fear of an embarrassing denture situation.
