The Internet is truly amazing. You can purchase almost anything online nowadays. Of course, that doesn’t mean you should. Some purchases need to be done in person. Take for example, dentures. Believe it or not, there are websites where you can order customized dentures.
How are they customized?
Well, an impression kit is sent to you and your dentures are created based on the impressions that you take at home. Sound like a good idea?
A quick read through most of the reviews of these types of services should reassure you that if you want to have dentures that fit and that are comfortable and functional, then you need to see a dentist.
Your dentist is trained to provide you with replacement teeth that look and feel completely natural. Whether you are missing one or several teeth, the dentist will be able to work with you—in person—to make sure you are completely satisfied with your smile as well as your ability to chew and speak.
Smile—You Have Cosmetic Dentures!
Cosmetic dentures do more than just replace your missing teeth. They can also support your facial structure and thereby improve your appearance.
No doubt you’ve seen someone whose dentures do not fit well. Consequently, their face may look somewhat misshapen because of bone shrinkage. And more than likely, they are also suffering from gum irritation because the denture base does not rest well along the ridge.
With cosmetic dentures, you won’t face such problems. These dentures take advantage of advanced technology and are produced in a quality dental lab. Moreover, cosmetic dentures have replacement teeth that look more like natural teeth with a finish that mimics enamel. The teeth are attached to a gum-colored base that is designed to fit securely but comfortably.
Full dentures can be held in place with a combination of suction and muscle strength in your cheeks and tongue. However, many denture wears feel more confident when they also use a denture adhesive.
Complete Your Smile with Precision/Partial Dentures
If you are missing just a few teeth—whether consecutive or not—then a partial denture could be the solution for your tooth loss. Like a full denture, a partial is made up of replacement teeth that are mounted on a gum-colored base. This prosthetic is designed to fit in between your remaining teeth in order to complete your smile. Hidden clasps that attach to adjacent teeth hold the partial in place.
Don’t be tempted by online gimmicks. See your dentist for dentures!
