Complete dentures–sometimes referred to as false teeth or plates–are removable dentures that replace all of the teeth in either one or both arches (upper and lower jaw). They consist of artificial teeth set in a pink, acrylic base that is made to imitate the appearance of a patient’s natural gums. Complete dentures are meant to be worn during the day but taken out and cleaned at night. Modern techniques and materials allow us to fabricate well fitting dentures that have excellent aesthetic results.
Complete dentures can be an excellent option for patients missing multiple teeth, or with multiple unrestorable teeth, who want an efficient and affordable option to restore their smile.
During an initial exam, our dentists can determine if you’re a good candidate for complete dentures and help you chart a path to restoring a beautiful smile.
