Your smile is a distinctive facial feature that says a lot about you before you speak a word. Knowing your smile is whole and healthy gives you the confidence to interact freely with others, whether it’s a business or social setting. However, missing teeth diminish your self-confidence and, worse yet, can make you look and feel older.
Many of us have memories of the difficulties our parents or grandparents went through with their dentures. Have you been dreading the idea that someday you might have to deal with them, too? Fortunately, state-of-the-art dental technology and updated materials available today allow us to create dentures that fit perfectly and look beautifully natural.
Full dentures consist of an upper and lower plate and are appropriate when all or most of your teeth are missing. A partial denture is used if you’re missing several teeth but still have remaining teeth to which a partial can be secured.
We want to provide you with the results you’re looking for, so before we start the process, we’ll talk to you about your expectations and how we can help you achieve your goals. We’ll work with you to find the right tooth shape, size, color, and positioning to bring out your most beautiful smile.
One of the most common questions we hear from patients is, “Will my new dentures look natural?” With over 30 years experience, Dr. Koch has all the expertise necessary to create natural-looking dentures using the highest quality, most updated dental materials available.
Our customized dentures are lightweight acrylic and tinted to blend naturally with your gums. Artificial teeth are carefully crafted and placed in the acrylic base one by one for the most realistic appearance possible.
We’re proud to have the convenience of a state-of-the-art dental lab right here in our West Chester office. This allows us to work closely with you and our skilled technicians to ensure that every detail of your new denture meets and exceeds your expectations.
A common complaint among denture wearers is the discomfort associated with movement of the denture. Upper dentures are usually more stable than lowers because they cover more surface area, providing a more secure fit. In many cases, however, lowers tend to move around more because they cover a smaller area and the constant movement of your tongue can cause the denture to shift.
If you’re worried that this will be a problem for you, we’ll be happy to talk to you about securing your dentures with dental implants. Many of our patients now enjoy the security that stable implant-supported dentures offer.
We want you to enjoy all the benefits of a whole and healthy smile. If you would like to learn more about our beautiful, natural-looking dentures, please call to arrange a consultation with Dr. Koch. Whether you choose traditional or implant-supported dentures, we’ll have you smiling confidently again in no time!
