Denture Replacement

Discolored – Worn Teeth

Mature Smile Makeover

Our patient had a poor fitting denture that was showing significant signs of wear. Significant stains were also a problem.

At the time she presented in our office, she was extremely self conscious about the condition of her teeth and the appearance of her smile.

Treatment without the Appearance of Being Treated

She had two goals. The first…. to obtain the correct denture and fit so her bite and occlusion would function correctly. Secondly, she had a strong desire to have the best smile possible. Something where she could smile broadly and show off pretty teeth.

Our patient had one unusual requirement however. She wanted everything to be about as perfect as everything could be…. yet… give the appearance that all that was really done was just basic teeth whitening.

Her concerns were worded in an unusual way that essentially meant to our doctors that she wanted everything recreated so she would have teeth that functioned normally again, fit her smile again and have cosmetic qualities that she could show off without being embarrassed anymore but without a hint of her teeth ever being reconstructed.

As can be seen in the close after photo, the new dentures have a radiant quality that practically defies detection. Notice how the lips are properly supported during a full smile. Dr. Winter paid close attention to certain bite and vertical dimension characteristics of the patient and created the needed denture structure for creating the cosmetic result the patient was seeking.

The outcome was quite dramatic for the patient. She reported that smiling felt quite natural again and seemed to “fit” her. The extra cosmetic detail used in the fabrication of her new dentures gave the appearance of natural teeth.

What Are the Different Types of Dentures?

Dentures are a fantastic option for people who are missing more than a few teeth. There are various types of dentures to help cater to people with different needs. For example, not everyone will require complete dentures. Complete dentures are a device that is designed to replace all of the teeth in a patient’s mouth. These can help people who are missing most, if not all, of their teeth to chew and speak properly.

Below are the different types of dentures:

  • Partial dentures
  • Immediate dentures
  • Snap-in dentures
  • Overdentures
  • Economy dentures
  • Custom dentures
  • Turbyfil Deluxe Dentures

How Much Do Dentures Cost?

The overall cost of dentures depends on the type you need, the material used to create them, and the provider's rates. In some cases, dentures can cost thousands, which can be difficult for some people on a budget. Fortunately, insurance usually covers standard dentures as they are considered a major procedure. The amount that is covered by insurance depends on your provider, but they can pay up to 50 percent of the cost.

Do Dentures Need to be Replaced?

Dentures are a long-term solution for missing teeth. However, they do need to be replaced every so often. Dentures should be replaced every three to five years or relined. This is done to ensure that you maintain the quality of your dentures and prevent excessive wear and tear. Once teeth are worn, they can lead to cracks in the denture, more prominent wrinkles around the lips, your nose getting closer to your chin and all of these things can make someone look older than they actually are.

What Can I Expect From a Denture Appointment?

If you are considering getting dentures for the first time, you may not know what to expect from the appointment. Dentures are usually prescribed by a dentist who already knows your medical history and the structure of your mouth. If the doctor is not your primary dentist, you will need to go over your full medical history and oral health. If possible, bring the appropriate paperwork, so the doctor has the necessary information needed to give you the best care possible. Dr. Winter will take an x-ray to check to insure no root fragments are left in your jaws. Then he will take measurements to see how to  make your smile more youthful. He will also ask you to bring in photographs of when you were smiling! This can be from when you were a young adult to something recent so he can use this information to help select ideal teeth for you.
