Can Dentures Help My Smile?

Find out if getting dentures in Gainesville, FL might be the best option for improving your smile.

When it comes to handling your tooth loss the sooner you seek treatment from your Gainesville, FL, dentist, Dr. Richard Smith, better. Of denturescourse, we also offer many options so it’s important that you sit down with us so that we can determine the type that is right for you. Of course, dentures have been the tried and true way to replace multiple teeth for many centuries and there’s a reason why!

What are dentures?

This removable dental prosthetic is designed to replace multiple missing teeth. Just looking at dentures you may notice a row of false teeth on a foundation that is made to look like gums. Through suction or tension, these custom-fitted dentures are designed to replace your missing teeth.

What are the benefits of dentures?

Many people with tooth loss don’t initially realize that their teeth are a big part of their facial structure. If you are missing several or all of your teeth, you may notice that your face will start to sag, which can prematurely age you. Fortunately, when you get dentures from our Gainesville general dentist, it will prevent this facial sagging and also give you a full smile back.

Once you learn how to speak and chew comfortably with your new restoration, you’ll also realize how much easier it is to eat certain foods. You'll also notice how confident you feel talking to those around you now that you have a full set of teeth again.

Plus, just about anyone can get dentures if they are dedicated to maintaining a healthy mouth and a healthy restoration. While some people may not be ideal candidates for dental implants, most are good candidates for dentures. And you can get dentures in only a couple visits without the need for surgery or invasive dental procedures like you do dental implants.

If you are on a budget or worried that your dental insurance won’t cover your restorative dentistry, don’t fear! Dentures are actually the least expensive way to replace your missing teeth. And we can work with you to make sure that finances are not keeping you from having a healthier smile.
