Which dentures last the longest?
The first step is to make an appointment with your dentist to find out if dentures are right for you. Your dentist will perform a thorough exam and take X-rays of your teeth and mouth. Then, your dentist will take impressions of your gums and remaining teeth to create a model that is sent to a dental lab for denture creation.
You can choose from partial and full dentures, depending on the number of missing teeth. Partial dentures are made to replace a few teeth, while full dentures replace an entire set of upper or lower teeth.
Dentures are custom-made to look like your natural teeth. Your dentist will carefully measure the size, shape and shade of your natural teeth to create a denture that looks and feels exactly like them.
Your new dentures will be made from a soft or hard resin material that is similar in texture and appearance to the color of your natural teeth, or a more flexible polymer or metal frame that rests comfortably against your gums.
Most people need to get a few try-in appointments to ensure the dentures fit well and look natural. After the dentures are fitted, they will be adjusted if necessary and you will need to follow the instructions your dentist gives you regarding maintenance and care.
