Dentures & Partials
Modern Technology Means Natural-Looking Dentures
Dental technology has advanced considerably in the last few years, and most modern dentures are practically indistinguishable from natural teeth. Gone are the blocky, chalk-colored teeth set into cotton candy pink gums!
We trust a high-quality lab with the crafting of our patients’ dentures, and they make the dentures with precision to look realistic and fit securely and comfortably.
We Create A Treatment Plan For You
You can play a part in the outcome of how your dentures look. Dr. Meunier will discuss your goals for your smile and make sure you end up with dentures you feel proud of. Denture teeth have come a long way when it comes to how realistic they look. Today's denture teeth are shaded to match your facial tone and do not look too white or too yellow, but instead provide you with a natural look.
If you are a person who has always struggled with the way your dentures fit, you will be happy to know that Dr. Meunier can place a few dental implants in your jaw bone that allow your dentures to lock in place. This eliminates embarrassing moments when eating or speaking and allows our denture patients a more full range of dietary options. Secure dentures also reduce your risk of developing sore spots. So please, if you're interested in getting new dentures, don't hesitate to contact our friendly Evansville, IN dental office today.
Every Case is Unique
Both dentures and dental implants have their own advantages, and this is an individual and personal decision. We will provide you with the information you need to make this decision, but ultimately, it’s up to you.
Dentures tend to be a more affordable solution, and technology has evolved considerably to the point where dentures look realistic and sit comfortably and securely. Most dental insurance plans cover dentures – or at least a significant portion of the cost.
Dental Implants Versus Dentures
While dental implants cost more - and many dental insurance plans only cover a portion of the cost - they do provide advantages that are not possible with dentures. Because the implant is placed into the structure of the jaw, it prevents the reabsorption of the jaw tissue that happens when you are missing teeth. Dentures are unable to provide this benefit. Dental implants become a permanent part of the structure of your mouth and are cared for in the same way that you would care for your teeth.
A hybrid option is also available – implant-retained dentures. Implant-retained dentures are held in place with a few dental implants, reducing the cost while still giving you some of the benefits of having dental implants.
