What Are Cosmetic Dentures?
Cosmetic dentures are removable appliances that replace missing teeth. In addition, these same dentures can also replace some of the gum tissue. Not all dentures are created equal. At South Lincoln Family Dentistry, we offer the most life-like options for cosmetic dentures that are available. These dentures are made from the most advanced material science has to offer. Thus, ensuring a long-lasting, enhanced appearance.
Cosmetic Dentures Offer Teeth That Are Right For You!
You might wonder why some dentures look like real teeth, and others have the distinct “denture appearance.” There are three reasons for choosing cosmetic dentures.
3 Reasons for Choosing Cosmetic Dentures
1. The shape of the teeth are for a cosmetic denture:
The placement of the teeth is critical in creating a natural smile. This is determined by aesthetic guidelines based on your facial features. Teeth for cosmetic dentures are chosen carefully. Thus ensuring we create an excellent match for the shape of your teeth.
2. Colors and surface texture of the teeth:
The placement of teeth on cosmetic dentures are designed to look like natural teeth. This includes gender-specific color and tooth shapes. Additionally, both will complement the age and personality of the patient.
3. Materials used for making cosmetic dentures:
Cosmetic dentures are crafted of highly durable acrylic resin or nanohybrid composite material. Consequently, the dentures are resistant to chipping, cracking, staining, and everyday wear. An advanced layering technique makes these teeth look incredibly life-like. Because of this, the teeth will display the depth and beauty of natural teeth. The extreme smile makeovers you see on TV, use the same material.
Commonly Asked Questions About Cosmetic Dentures…
What is the cost of cosmetic dentures and do you offer payment plans?
The cost of dentures can vary based on the quality you choose. Price can even vary based on the area in which you live. Although you can purchase cheap dentures, you’ll often find that a lower cost usually means lower quality. High-quality cosmetic dentures use techniques and materials that reproduce the appearance of real teeth and natural gum tissue. This material tends to be stronger and will often last much longer. Better yet, it even includes a warranty. The cost of a basic denture for one arch of teeth generally runs between $300 and $500.
Top-quality cosmetic dentures use exceptional materials. Typically, they cost around $2,000 to $5,000 per arch. Though this may seem like a considerable increase in cost, you get much more. Included in this price:
✔ A set of temporary dentures.
✔ Several follow-up appointments to ensure the perfect fit.
✔ Multiple years of warranty.
✔ A set of beautifully created custom dentures.
Can I have payment plans or financing for my cosmetic dentures?
South Lincoln Family Dentistry offers monthly payment plans so you can spread out the cost over time. We also offer financing options through CareCredit or Lending Club. You can apply for either of these options before ever coming into the office. All of these are great options. It will make getting care so much more affordable. With our cosmetic dentures, we will get you back to doing everything you love!
What exactly are immediate dentures?
Immediate dentures are those dentures that are provided to you as part of the process. Immediate dentures are included in the total price of your cosmetic dentures. Because we care and want excellent results for our patients, we offer immediate dentures to allow time for healing. If the final dentures are made while the tissues in the mouth are still swollen, the fit would be sub-par. This would be similar to trying on a new pair of jeans right after knee replacement surgery. Once the swelling goes down, we can create a final set of beautiful cosmetic dentures. The final product will fit like a glove!
What is a complete cosmetic denture?
A complete cosmetic denture is custom made over several appointments. This particular denture does not have implant attachments. It is often suitable for an upper denture; particularly in patients who are looking for a custom upper denture to compliment a lower over-denture or hybrid prosthesis. This option is superior to conventional dentures as patients get two sets of dentures instead of one. It takes time for the bone to remodel after removing teeth, which is why we make the first set to be used right after the teeth are removed. The 2nd set comes after a healing period of 3-4 months. This will ensure a perfect fit and the most natural-looking smile possible. This procedure is typically not covered by dental insurance. Also, it will require multiple appointments for a superior fit.
What is the quality and benefit of having cosmetic dentures?
Not all dentures are created equal. Some may do more harm than good. Economy dentures are not always made to fit. In general, they can end up moving around, causing poor retention and sores in your mouth. Precise measurements are taken to create a perfect fit because everyone is different. Our skillfully designed cosmetic dentures provide you with a real smile based on your personality and facial characteristics. The final result, a smile that perfectly fits you!
How soon after having my teeth extracted will I get my cosmetic dentures?
Upon extraction of your teeth, we will provide you with a pair of dentures to use. This allows us time to finish creating your new permanent dentures. As previously mentioned, this temporary pair comes with the cost of your permanent dentures. We value open communication and check in regularly with our patients as we create their dentures.
Problems commonly experienced with any denture.
- Removal of natural teeth will result in bone loss. Bone loss will occur if no implant is placed. Without any teeth in your jaw bone, that bone will start to dissolve and will no longer support the denture as it did before.
- As you lose bone, and dentures become loose, a denture adhesive may be needed. The adhesive will help keep them in place.
- Dentures can alter your perception of taste.
- Loss of confidence and chewing ability. As dentures become loose, even with adhesive, you may lose your strength and confidence in chewing hard or tough foods.
If you would like to avoid problems associated with any dentures, implants retained dentures, or a Hybrid prosthesis would be an excellent option for you. Those use dental implants, which slow down the resorption of the bone.
