The most common concern about dentures is whether or not they will look real or fake? It’s an important question because traditionally dentures have been too generic in the line of their teeth and in their color. They have not been customized to each person’s smile and facial shape. Dr. Sayed, being a trained cosmetic dentist, has an eye for balance and harmony and is able to create and design dentures that complement your other facial features. They are designed to closely resemble your natural teeth color so that no one knows you wearing them.

There are two types of dentures due to the various reasons for dentures:

  • Complete Denture-A full set of teeth in the denture to replace the loss of all the teeth within the mouth.
  • Partial Denture -When you lose 2 or more teeth together, a partial denture can replace the gap of those missing teeth.

What does getting dentures involve?

Step 1. As with any dental work, the process is begun through

a consultation in which our denture team will do a full exam of your mouth including digital X-Rays. Once this has been done and it has been decided by you and our denturist, Dr Sayed, our team will take impressions of your mouth and gums.

Step 2. Once the impressions have been taken, we will send them off to a laboratory that specializes in creating and designing custom fabricated dentures that fit into your mouth like they were your own. The dentures are made out of acrylic, giving the dentures a real look to them and also making them very durable to last for many years. The whole process from when we mail the impressions out to when we receive your new customized dentures takes anywhere from 7 to 10 days.

Step 3. Once we have received the dentures, we will bring you in for the final appointment. If there are any teeth that need to be removed we will do so during this appointment. In some cases, if the patient is looking for a more secure fit for the dentures, we will place mini dental implants in to fasten the denture. These dental implants will help with chewing and also avoid food being trapped underneath the denture. Once all of this is done we will place your new dentures in your mouth

and answer any and all questions you may have about them.
