Are There More Ways to Customize Dentures Than Ever Before?
Posted on 2/15/2020 by Dr. Castellon
Dentures are very effective at restoring a smile to its natural beauty. You may have heard from other people who have dentures that they are uncomfortable or that their dentures don't look like their old teeth used to look.
Fortunately, denture technology has come a far way in recent years. With this new technology, dentures are more customizable and comfortable than they ever have been.
Part of the reason dentures are so customizable now is to protect your mouth. Uncomfortable dentures make it harder to wear them daily, and can even cause problems with your bite. Dentures are meant to improve your quality of life, and we can explain how by showing you all of the customizable features now available.
What Can Be Customized?
With advances in technology, dentures have many customizable aspects. The first customizable aspect of a denture is the fit. When you have dentures made at our office, we will make them an exact fit. We can do this by taking a mold of your mouth as well as scanning the inside of your mouth. Your personal mold and scanned images will then be sent to a lab where the base of your dentures will be created for an exact fit.
While your dentures are being made, you are free to choose the color you want the gums and teeth to be. We have many options available, so you will be able to find exactly what you like. Finally, the teeth that will be placed in your dentures will be fit to an exact specification so that your bit is aligned properly. This will also make your face have a better posture.
Let us know if you are considering getting custom dentures. We pride our self with patient care, and we will spend the time to make sure you are happy with your dentures. Give us a call at our office to schedule a consultation.
