Dentures Q&A

What are dentures?

Dentures are prosthetic replacement teeth that you wear when you have multiple missing teeth. With several types of dentures to choose from, these restorations can replace some or all of your teeth.

At Four Corners Dental and Dentures, Dr. Moore and the team offer same-day dentures to fully restore your smile in a single visit. They also provide onsite repairs and relines for those who need it.

What are the different types of dentures?

Many types of dentures are available to improve your smile and dental health, but the most common are:

Complete (full) dentures

Also called conventional dentures, complete dentures replace all the teeth in your mouth. These custom-made replacement teeth attach to a pink-colored base that closely resembles your natural gums. Complete dentures also cover the roof of your mouth for a secure fit that allows you to chew and speak with ease.

Partial dentures

Partial dentures only replace some of your teeth. While they attach to acrylic gums, like complete dentures, partial dentures don’t include a base that fits under the roof of your mouth. Instead, these dentures use metal or tooth-colored wiring that wraps around your surrounding healthy teeth for support.

Implant-supported dentures

Implant-support dentures connect to dental implants. These small titanium posts replace your natural tooth roots to stabilize your dentures. By connecting to implants, your dentures can’t shift out of place. Most people find that implant-supported dentures most closely align with the look and feel of their natural teeth.

How do same-day dentures work?

Creating conventional dentures is a multi-step process that requires multiple visits and temporary restorations. At Four Corners Dental and Dentures, Dr. Moore and the team have intraoral scanners, 3-D dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), and an onsite laboratory to design your treatment plan, impressions, and create your dentures in-house.

When you opt for same-day dentures, Dr. Moore removes all of your unhealthy or damaged teeth and takes highly accurate impressions to create your custom-made dentures. While you wait, Dr. Moore can deliver your custom dentures to ensure they fit perfectly.

Same-day dentures are a fast and affordable option for individuals who don’t want to wait through multiple visits to restore their smile and tooth function.
