Dentures & Bridges

Dentures

Dentistry is all about smiles, and having a confident, healthy, beautiful one is important to us and to you! If you’re missing teeth, come in and see us here at Ennis Family Dentistry & Orthodontics. Our practice provides personalized denture services and we can create one-of-a-kind dentures for you that feel great and look natural.

What They Are

Dentures are removable replacement teeth that come in two types: full and partial.

Full Dentures are given to patients when all of the natural teeth are missing or have been removed. Conventional full dentures are placed after the gum tissue has healed, which can take several months. Immediate full dentures are placed immediately after the teeth have been removed and may require frequent adjustments during the first couple of months of use.

Partial Dentures consist of fake teeth attached to either an acrylic (gum color) base or a metal frame that fits in between your natural teeth. This removable alternative to a bridge effectively fills in where permanent teeth are missing.

Are Dentures Right for You?

Dentures can be an excellent solution for restoring your smile. If you’re interested in learning more, please schedule an appointment. Our team will be happy to answer any questions you might have and will help you determine the best course of treatment for your ongoing dental health.

Bridges

A dental bridge provides another option for replacing missing teeth with natural-looking artificial ones. Not only do bridges fill gaps in your smile, but they also help maintain the shape of your face, and alleviate stress on your bite. A variety of materials can be used to craft your unique bridge, including gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these. It is then bonded to your surrounding teeth.

The success of any bridge depends on its foundation — the other teeth, gums, or bone it is attached to. Therefore, it is very important to keep your mouth healthy and your teeth and bones strong
