Many patients needing dentures put off treatment over fears of how they will look and feel. They recall images of dentures that look fake and come loose. However, many of today’s dentists offer improved, realistic dentures that look and feel like natural teeth.
Tooth loss occurs for many reasons, including trauma, decay, and disease. But no matter the reason, the most important factor to consider is how to replace lost teeth. For patients who are missing an entire arch of teeth or have random, sporadic tooth loss, dentures may be the best option.
If you are in the Duncan, OK, area and need dentures but worry about them looking fake, you can trust Dr. Matthew Bridges. He has the experience needed and understands the complexities involved to give you a beautiful smile with one of his realistic denture options. He will fabricate your dentures to fit your face and smile’s natural proportions properly, ensuring they are the correct width and height.
3 Tooth Options for Realistic Dentures
At Chisolm Trail Smile Center, we fabricate our dentures with teeth supplied from the nation’s top-selling brand, Dentsply Trubyte. We offer three different tooth material options, and the one that’s best for you depends on your needs, desires, and budget. While the materials differ, each option is customized to blend in with the aesthetics of your smile and face. The result is realistic dentures that look and feel natural.
Option #1: Economy
Even those on a tight budget can enjoy a beautiful smile. While the economy level is budget-friendly, the outcome is high-quality. This denture is fabricated using Bioform teeth, which are formulated from synthetic resin. A wide selection of shades and shapes are available to give you an aesthetically pleasing result.
Option #2: Deluxe
Deluxe is a step above economy and uses TruExpression teeth. This is the newest tooth option from Dentsply, and these upgraded teeth provide realistic shade blending and high wear resistance. The result is durable, natural-looking, realistic dentures.
Option #3: Premium
Our highest quality option utilizes Portrait IPN. These teeth are a unique blend of hybrid materials to provide superior durability and mimic natural tooth enamel. They are available in all 16 shades and deliver an unmatched combination of performance, function, and aesthetics.
The Most Realistic Denture Option
When most people think of dentures, they envision an arch of teeth held in place with an adhesive. They recall memories of their grandparents’ dentures that clicked and clacked while they talked and came loose when they ate.
Today’s dentures are much improved, and this is especially true for patients who opt for implant-supported dentures.
Implant-supported dentures are the most stable and reliable option. Instead of resting on the gums, they attach to dental implants placed in the jawbone. Not only does this option offer the highest level of support, but the implants also mimic the roots of the teeth. This stimulates the jawbone and prevents the usual bone recession that occurs with the loss of tooth roots.
Have you have ever noticed the “sunken in” appearance of the face that leaves a denture wearer looking older? This is the consequence of bone recession. Since dental implants help prevent bone recession, the face can retain its natural appearance.
For implant-supported dentures, Dr. Bridges will refer you to a specialist he trusts for implant surgery. The implants will take approximately three to six months to integrate into the jaw fully. Once this occurs, Dr. Bridges will fabricate your custom dentures and securely attach them to your implants.
