Rebuild Your Smile and Restore Your Quality of Life with High-quality Dentures
Dentures are a cost-effective alternative to implants or bridges to replace missing teeth. While dentures may have a negative reputation for looking fake or causing discomfort, Dr. Durwood Nowell of Southern Pine Dental, Dothan, Alabama, offers cosmetic dentures that look better, last longer and fit like natural teeth.
Types of dentures
Dentures come in various sizes and shapes to resolve the needs of different patients. If you are looking for denture-based restorations, we may recommend the following:
- Full dentures: When you are missing a complete set of teeth, we use full dentures to restore your smile. Complete dentures are created using high-quality technology and materials to ensure comfortable, non-slip restorations
- Partial dentures: If you are missing a few teeth, time is of the essence before the remaining healthy start shifting into the gap left behind. Partial dentures are a set of artificial teeth secured using metal clasps on the adjacent teeth
- Implant-supported dentures: Conventional dentures snugly rest on your jaw with added support from suction or adhesives. However, as your jawbone shrinks due to tooth loss, your denture may lose its grip. We can overcome this flaw by attaching your denture restoration to dental implants. Implant-supported dentures are more stable, allowing patients to use their teeth without worrying about slippage, dental adhesives, or discomfort
Dentures are typically made from acrylic resin or cobalt-chromium (metal-based) supported by a gum-colored base. At Southern Pine Dental, our ceramists use the latest technology and materials to fabricate dentures matching your teeth and gums. And not only that. We use strong and durable materials to create sturdy dentures, offering a long-term investment.
What to expect when getting dentures
The first step is to understand you as a person and your treatment goals. Once we establish a personal relationship, creating your restoration is the easier part. We will explain in detail what the treatment involves, including timelines, budget, adjustment period, etc., to help you make a better-informed decision.
The next step is taking impressions of your teeth and gums to create molds used by our technicians to manufacture your bespoke denture. Once your denture arrives, you will try them on, and we might make further adjustments to ensure they look natural and fit comfortably.
