Full And Partial Dentures

A denture is a removable dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile.
There are 2 types of dentures - complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
Dentures are made to resemble your natural teeth so there should be no noticeable change in your appearance. In fact, they can even improve your smile!
