What Are Dentures?

They are custom-made to fit comfortably in your mouth, providing replacement teeth with a natural look and allowing you to eat, speak, and smile. We offer two types of dentures to replace teeth.

Full Dentures

Immediate Dentures are delivered the same day as your dental surgery. They typically look great and function well, immediate dentures are often used as a transition while you are healing from dental surgery. They are either relined or replaced by custom dentures following adequate healing time.

Oftentimes patients will comment on this being the best denture ever made, having the most natural life-like appearance so no one realizes you are wearing dentures.

Partial Dentures

If you are missing one or multiple teeth, you may consider partial dentures. There are several types including: cast metal, flexible and Dr. Mundl’s Custom Cosmetic Denture

How Do Dentures Work?

Custom Design

The full denture- creation process begins with a detailed assessment of your mouth. Impressions and measurements are taken to ensure a precise fit. These measurements guide the creation of your custom dentures.

Materials and Construction

Dentures are typically made from acrylic, porcelain, or a combination of materials. The teeth resemble natural teeth, and the base matches the color of gum tissue on your gums.

Secure Fit

Traditional dentures rely on suction to stay in place, while partial dentures are anchored to your existing teeth with clasps or precision attachments. You may need denture adhesives for a more secure fit when you wear new dentures.

Natural Appearance

Modern dentures are designed to closely mimic the appearance of natural teeth. They’re carefully positioned to provide a harmonious smile.

Improved Functionality

Traditional dentures restore your ability to chew and speak effectively. While an adjustment period may be needed, most individuals adapt quickly to their new permanent dentures again.
