Dentures are oral prostheses used to replace multiple missing teeth. Patients who lose a tooth or two can get them restored using dental bridges or implants. But, when they lose more teeth, it would not be advisable to go for single-tooth restorations, as it could become complicated and tricky. So, the best option would be dentures.
What are dentures made from?
Dentures are made from two distinct materials, namely dental-grade ceramic and gum-colored acrylic. Ceramic is used to make the replacement teeth, as it can be customized to match the exact color, texture, and contour of your natural teeth. Also, it offers excellent durability and strength. Acrylic is used to mold the base of the dentures. It also mimics the exact appearance of the gums, thereby forming a complete oral restoration in terms of aesthetics and functionality. Additionally, they may be backed by a metal framework for superior stability and strength.
Why should you choose dentures?
