Dentures Q&A

What are dentures made of?

If you’ve lost some or all of your teeth, dentures are a reliable means of restoring your smile. Made up of a gum-colored base that supports a set of artificial teeth, dentures can either be removable or permanently fitted to your mouth.

The artificial teeth in dentures are made from the highest quality porcelain, which has a similar color and sheen as natural tooth enamel. That means your dentures can provide you with a new smile that looks beautiful and natural.

 Why should I get dentures?

Dentures are more than just artificial teeth –– they’re a means for reclaiming your smile and confidence. They also offer a variety of benefits, including:

  • Improved chewing ability
  • Improved speaking ability
  • Increased self-esteem and confidence

Dentures make it easier for you to smile and laugh again, adding enjoyment to your day-to-day activities and improving your quality of life.

What are the types of dentures?

Access Dental offers several types of dentures:

Partial versus full dentures

Partial dentures replace one or more missing teeth. The base of partial dentures is custom-designed so that there are openings where you still have natural teeth. When you wear your partial dentures, your natural teeth and your artificial teeth work together harmoniously.

Full dentures replace all teeth in your upper jaw, lower jaw, or both. If you want full dentures but still have some teeth remaining in your smile, you can get extractions to make room.

Implant-supported versus traditional dentures

Dental implants, which are small posts your dentist inserts into your jaw bone, hold implant-supported dentures in place. Implant-supported dentures permanently replace teeth and help to protect your bone structure, keeping your jaw bone strong and healthy.

Traditional dentures attach over your gums using an adhesive mechanism or suction. They’re easy to use, removable, and custom-built, providing optimized function and comfort.

Regardless of the type of dentures you choose, the team at Access Dental offers exceptional service and delivers incredible results. They can provide a more comfortable experience and more accurately fitting dentures.
