What are dentures?

Dentures are removable, prosthetic teeth that restore your smile for confidence and beauty. We offer both full and partial dentures in Carmel, Indiana. Full dentures replace all of the teeth in the upper and/or lower jaw, while partial dentures are used to replace missing teeth located in one section of your smile. Our talented dentist, Dr. Taylor, will determine which type of denture best suits your needs.

 

How are dentures made?

Dentures can be used about eight to twelve weeks after teeth have been extracted from your mouth. This allows your mouth and gums to heal properly, so pain and possible irritation are avoided. Dentures are made after our dental team takes extensive measurements and molds. We work hard to make sure each full and partial denture fits your smile perfectly.

 

Both full and partial dentures use replacement teeth attached to pink or gum-colored bases. Partial dentures generally utilize a metal framework to hold the denture in place. Dentures are removable, making it easy to make adjustments or additions over time. Dentures are also a more economically friendly option for replacing multiple missing teeth.
