If you’ve never worn dentures, or if it’s been years since you’ve seen these prosthetics, you may be surprised by how they’ve evolved. Today’s dentures are nothing like the dentures of the past.

Modern dentures in San Jose mean no bulky or chiclet-style teeth. No plastic-looking prosthetics.

Today’s dentures look and function like natural teeth. And today’s technologies make them more customizable than in the past.

Modern Dentures and Partial Dentures in San Jose, CA

Complete dentures stand in for total tooth loss. When you consider that kind of responsibility, it only makes sense that the denture is durable, practical, and appealing. It has a lot of work to do!

Partial dentures take over only where teeth are missing. They are arches or plates that contain only the teeth needed to fill smile gaps.

Implant-supported dentures are ideal if you crave a more stable or fixed prosthetic. Implant dentures in San Jose rely on four to six dental implants, which are strong enough to fix the prosthetic to your jaw.

The Denture Process

The denture process means coming to our dental office for a consultation. If your dentist feels that dentures will work for your tooth loss, and if you decide to go this route, we take careful impressions of your gums.

We rely on these impressions to craft custom dentures that fit the unique curves of your jaw. They are also colored to complement your skin tone.

Your dentist will talk to you about proper denture care, including soaking your prosthetic and gum health.
