You’re ready to get your confidence back by investing in dentures, but you might have a few questions before you take the next step. You might be wondering about denture cost, appearance or lifestyle changes, and what these will mean for your everyday life.

What is a denture?

A denture is a removable replacement for a missing tooth or multiple teeth. Dentures can be made in two types: partial and complete. If you’re missing all of your natural teeth, a complete denture is necessary to replace your entire set of teeth. A partial denture replaces a few missing teeth while leaving your remaining natural teeth unchanged.

Will everyone know I’m wearing dentures?

If you’ve never worn a denture, you might be wondering if it will change your appearance. The good news is that dentures are designed to look like your natural teeth, so your family and friends aren’t likely to notice any changes to your smile. Our dental prosthetist at Aesthetic Dentures is an expert in denture craftsmanship and is committed to ensuring your new teeth look as natural as possible. We can also look at a photo of you with your natural teeth so that we gain a better understanding of what you need.

Common Denture

How much do they cost?

Denture cost can vary depending on the type and quality of the denture. While it might be tempting to choose a denture provider based on price alone, you should remember that the comfort and appearance of your denture are the most important factors in your satisfaction. At Aesthetic Dentures, we’ll provide an initial consultation to assess your needs and discuss possible treatments. After, we’ll review costs with you before beginning any treatment process.

How do I keep my denture clean?

Keeping your denture clean is essential in extending its life and comfort. First, make sure to clean your dentures over a towel or sink filled with water so that your denture will be safe if dropped. Use denture cleanser and a non-abrasive brush to clean your denture safely. Remember, never use toothpaste to clean your denture, as it’s too abrasive and could cause damage. When you receive your denture from Aesthetic Dentures, we’ll give you a starter pack of information so that you feel comfortable keeping cleaning it regularly.

Will it affect what I can eat?

When you’re new to dentures, you might have an adjustment period. Dentures can affect your ability to eat at first, but your body will adjust to the new addition over time. It’s best to start with small, soft pieces of food to avoid discomfort.

Dentures also change what you can eat, though only slightly. Foods that are hard could cause breakage to your denture, while sticky foods can cause damage that will need to be repaired by professionals. We’ll make sure you know which foods to avoid as you adjust to your new denture.
