If you’re living with missing teeth, you’ve probably noticed some lifestyle changes. You may lack confidence when you speak or smile. Your chewing ability has likely diminished. Additionally, your facial appearance may have changed, sagging in the areas where teeth are not present. A denture or partial can restore your self-confidence and renew oral function. At Dentistry of the Carolinas, we create natural-looking dentures and partials for patients in Charlotte and the surrounding communities.
What are dentures and partials?
Dentures and partials are removable replacements for missing teeth and soft tissues. Dentures replace all of the teeth, whereas partials rest in line with existing, healthy teeth. Typically made from acrylic resins, dentures and partials match existing gum tissue. Skilled artisans shape the teeth to complement your facial features and coloring, and the dentist will take careful measurements to ensure optimal comfort. Modern dentures feel, look, and function very similar to natural teeth.
