Eat, Laugh, and Smile with Confidence
Trust Dr. Booth and Silver Screen Dental
If you have missing, fractured or failing teeth and would like to get back to the days where you could chew your food, you should look into getting dentures. Removable dentures can be the most affordable and efficient way to restore your missing smile.
Dentures have come a long way and now fit better, look better and last longer (when properly cared for) than ever. With dentures, you can improve your eating, speech and comfort while protecting remaining teeth from excess wear and help prevent facial and lip muscles from sinking in.
At Silver Screen Dental in Austin, Texas, we will guide you through all your options and help you determine which type of denture best suits you. Our staff is sensitive to the pain and trauma of losing one’s teeth and the replacement process. We promise to make your experience a pleasant one.
What Are Dentures?
Dentures are prosthetic devices used to replace missing teeth. They are made from artificial materials such as acrylic and porcelain, and they can be held in place using dental adhesive or clips attached to the existing teeth. Complete dentures replace all of the teeth, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
Whether you require a full or partial denture, denture repair or a second opinion on your current dentures, Silver Screen Dental is the dental office that can give you proper denture care. We’ve provided dentures for patients of all ages.
Full Dentures vs. Partial Dentures
Dentures are available in two different types. You can get “full” dentures or you can “partial” dentures.
Partial dentures are replacement teeth that are attached to a plastic base that is the color of your gums. Partial dentures are used when there are natural teeth still remaining in the upper or lower jaw. A precision partial denture is removable and has a clasp that attaches to the crowns.
Full dentures, also known as “complete” dentures, can be conventional or “immediate.” Conventional dentures can be placed in your mouth after all your teeth are gone and the gum tissue has started to heal. A typical time frame is between eight and 12 weeks.
Immediate dentures can be placed in your mouth immediately after your teeth are gone. The only catch to immediate dentures is they do tend to require more time to heal and require more adjustments.
Our Denture Services in North Austin
At Silver Screen Dental, our experienced and knowledgeable dentists can help you determine if removable dentures are the best option for your oral health needs. We offer a range of services to ensure that you get the most out of your denture-wearing experience.
One-Day Complete Dentures
At Silver Screen Dental, we offer one-day complete denture services that allow our patients to walk out of the office with a full set of dentures in just one day. Using advanced technology, we are able to create custom-fit dentures and provide them on an accelerated timeline. During your appointment, we will take measurements and make a mold of your mouth to ensure the highest level of accuracy and comfort.
Cast-Metal Framework Partial Dentures
For those missing more than one tooth, we offer cast-metal framework partial dentures. These custom-fitted dentures are designed to fit seamlessly in your mouth and provide a secure foundation for prosthetic teeth. The metal framework is lightweight and strong, providing superior durability and optimal aesthetics.
Metal-Free Partial Dentures
Silver Screen Dental offers metal-free partial dentures to our patients. Made from acrylic resin and plastic materials, these custom-fitted dentures are comfortable and provide a natural look without the need for metal components.
Implant-Supported and Retained Dentures
For those looking for a more secure and stable fit, implant-retained dentures may be the right choice. With this type of denture, implants are surgically placed in the jaw bone to provide a strong foundation for your prosthetic teeth.
Immediate dentures are used when all of the teeth must be removed at once. We take precise measurements in advance so that the denture can be made before tooth removal, allowing us to place them immediately after the extraction procedure is completed. This saves time and allows you to have a comfortable fitting without having to wait weeks or months for your new smile.
Denture Repairs and Relines
At Silver Screen Dental, we are also able to provide repair and reline services for existing dentures. This can be a great alternative to replacing your denture entirely and can help extend its life. During the appointment, we will assess the damage and make any necessary repairs or adjustments. We also offer soft-tissue relines to restore the fit of your dentures.
If the condition of your teeth has deteriorated to the point that dentures are the only option, we offer extraction services in our office. During this procedure, the teeth are safely removed and any necessary preparation is made before the placement of full dentures.
When to Get Dentures
If you are missing teeth or have teeth that are severely damaged or decayed, dentures may be the best way to restore your smile. Other signs that it’s time for dentures include difficulty speaking or eating because of missing teeth, chronic jaw pain caused by poor bite alignment, and changes in facial structure due to tooth loss.
