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?
A recent study was conducted to measure the satisfaction levels of patients who had recently undergone denture therapy. Patients were surveyed to record their expectation level before treatment and their satisfaction level when the process was complete.
You will be happy to hear that the majority reported that they were more satisfied with the esthetic results than they expected!
A Customized Solution for Your Smile
That is because modern dentures today are completely customized for each patient. The materials used have vastly improved, and now we can create dentures that not only complement your appearance but fit comfortably and feel great.
The most important (and fun!) part of the dentures process is the planning stage. Your dentist will talk to you about your expectations and help you select the perfect tooth color, shape, and size that complement your smile. Skilled technicians use our specifications to produce your new dentures in a state-of-the-art dental lab.
Artificial teeth are set one-by-one in a gum-colored acrylic base. This painstaking process produces lifelike results because they have all the subtle variations in spacing and position of natural teeth.
