3 Ways Today's Dentures Have Improved Over the Years

Dentures | Tucson AZ Dentist

But can they really do all they claim to do? Is it worth spending a few dollars to give it a try?

The bottom line is that, while an OTC treatment will provide some level of whitening, it is limited by the strength of the peroxide used in the product. Because treatment is not supervised by a professional, the concentration of hydrogen peroxide in OTC ...

Not Your Grandparents' Dentures!

Adult Couple | Partial Dentures Tucson

Does the idea of wearing dentures make you cringe? It’s understandable because until recently, dentures were pretty much a one-size-fits-all solution with a focus on function, not aesthetics. Fortunately, things have changed dramatically, and today we can design dentures that fit, feel, and look more like natural teeth than ever before.

How Satisfied Are Denture Patients?

Today’s dentures are superior in every way to dentures made even 20 years ago. But how does that match up with a patient’s expectations for treatment?
