Why Cosmetic Dentures?
For patients with severe tooth loss, we recommend cosmetic dentures. Our custom-designed dentures rest firmly against the entire gum line, these dentures provide an unparalleled fit and look. Patients will often experience a boost in confidence after they get their dentures, and feel and look young again! Creating a cosmetic denture is really a work of art in the hands of a skilled dentist like Dr. Kildoo and her dental team.
Implant Dentures are just like a traditional denture except that they are affixed to implants that are placed into the bone. This type of denture is the closest thing to your original teeth in terms of function and appearance and you don’t have to worry about them moving while eating, laughing, participating in sports, or the like. They also help conserve the bone since the roots in the bone keep the bone active.
Traditional Dentures & Bridges are a great way to improve your appearance, the function of your jaw, and help you look years younger. If you’re missing one or more teeth but have several nearby teeth which are in good function, a bridge may be used to help restore funciton. For those who are missing all of their teeth in the upper or lower jaw, a traditional full denture or implant denture is the best option to restore your look and function.
Implant-supported dentures are the best choice for replacing a full set of upper or lower teeth.
Cosmetic dentures are custom-designed for the best fit so you can smile with confidence.
Cosmetic dentures will make you look years younger! Smile, laugh, and enjoy life again.
