It may sound like a stretch to say that well-made dentures can change your life. But if you have ever had to laugh, speak, smile, or eat with missing teeth, you understand how solving all these problems can improve your quality of life!

Dentures Have Improved…A Lot!

Appearance

One of the worries you may have if you are considering dentures in Metairie, LA is appearance. Will they look natural or will everyone know your secret? You may even remember a friend or family member who had dentures that looked like they were made for someone else’s mouth.

Today, dentists have access to a wide range of advanced materials that provide a lot of freedom in customizing dentures for your smile. You and your dentist choose the shape, size, color, and positioning of individual teeth that enhance and complement your smile, and a high-tech custom dental lab fabricates the dentures to these specifications.

Comfortable Fit

Most of us have heard stories about dentures that move, shift, and even pop out during a forceful sneeze. It’s true that dentures made years ago were rigid and unstable because of the materials used.

But lighter, more pliable materials used for dentures today minimize irritation and offer a more comfortable, secure fit because they conform closely to the contour of the jaw. And if you’re looking for a more permanent alternative to removable dentures, ask your dentist about securing them with dental implants. The implants are rooted in your jaw bone, and the dentures are affixed to them offering the ultimate in stability.
