A beautiful smile can go a long way. In our society, smiles are highly rated in all forms of life. If you suffer from missing or damaged teeth, your social life, your work life, and even your academic life can potentially come under scrutiny by your peers, and even yourself. Low self-esteem and depression can be linked to poor smiles. If you do have any missing or lost teeth, consider dentures to fill out your smile and boost your self-image.

Dentures are designed to fill in gaps with your smile without the need for invasive surgery. They are held in place within your mouth with a dental cement or bonding material. The hold is temporary, and dentures can be taken out on a nightly basis to be cleaned and care for.

Dentures do not need to be used to replace every tooth in your mouth. Although dentures can be crafted for entire rows, which are called complete dentures, they can be crafted to replace a missing tooth or two. These are called partial dentures and can be shaped and customized to fit comfortably in your mouth between your other teeth with the functionality and aesthetics you desire. No matter which denture treatment your mouth requires, consider getting lost teeth replaced as soon as possible.
