What are Dentures?

In essence, dentures are artificial teeth that are made to resemble the appearance of real teeth and are supported by the tissues of your gums. There are different types of dentures depending on your situation; you can use dentures to replace a single row of missing teeth or both tops and bottoms. Permanent dentures are also an option although removable dentures are the most common.

What are Dentures Made Out Of?

Traditionally, dentures were made out of a hard-plastic composite or even porcelain. However, advancements to dental science have made hard resins the preferred option due to their durability and affordability.

How Long Do Dentures Last?

The lifespan of dentures correlates with the type of care you take for them. If you use the recommended products, clean them regularly, and don’t use them to eat overly hard foods, you can enjoy them for a long time without needing a replacement. Depending on the level of use and other factors, dentures can last anywhere between seven and ten years.
