Dentures And Partial Dentures
Dentures are used to help solve problems that happen when patients start to lose teeth, whether we remove them or they fall out. After removing one or more teeth, a person’s mouth will start to shift, making changes to your mouth and your face!
For this reason, we offer complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are for when all of your teeth are missing, and partials are for when you still have a few teeth.
We also offer both conventional and immediate dentures. Immediate dentures are made prior to removing your teeth while conventional dentures are made afterward. Then it takes eight to twelve weeks to get them.
It is our goal to make the process go as smoothly as possible. We will discuss your options, and together we can decide the best way to proceed.
If you have any questions about dentures or would like to schedule an examination to see if you could benefit from them, feel free to contact us today at (806) 894-4499.
Fixed bridges are used to replace missing teeth. It is an extremely safe way to replace your teeth and give you a smile of which you can be proud!
Fixed bridges are the best way to have natural-looking teeth. The teeth are attached to a metal bridge. The bridges are then fixed to your regular teeth so that they stay in place. It may be necessary to put crowns over your regular teeth to keep the bridge in place.
With proper care, fixed bridges should last a very long time because they are so durable. There are times when they get a little loose so you might have to have them re-cemented.
Whether or not you are worried about your smile, bridges are also used to keep your remaining teeth in place. They help you eat and speak much better, not to mention they give you a beautiful smile of which you can be proud!
Veneers are used to cover stains, chips, decays, or irregularities on your teeth.
Veneers are a thin coat that a dental technician applies right over your teeth. In order to proceed with veneers, you need to have a model made of your teeth so that your veneers can be custom made to fit your mouth. We also have to remove some enamel to make them permanent.
It is important that you take good care of your veneers. We recommend staying away from food and drinks that may stain them. They can also crack or chip if you are not careful.
Veneers are a more affordable option to give you a beautiful smile. They are much cheaper than crowns, but they will still help you have a smile of which you are proud. They are also better than bonding because many people complain that their bonds lose their natural-teeth color.
