Dentures in San Ramon
At Pro Smile Dental Care in San Ramon, California, we recognize the value that a high quality pair of dentures can bring to our patients’ lives. Patients who receive prosthetic teeth after living with missing teeth report that they are able to pronounce words better, chew more strongly, and feel more confident in how they look.
Whether you are considering dentures in San Ramon due to tooth decay, physical trauma, or disease, we are able to fit you for a device that will provide a comfortable, secure fit and attractive appearance. We take great care to closely match the look of your natural teeth and create a perfect fit that will not slip or shift during the day.
What are the Different Types of Dentures?
Dentures are available to
either completely fill out an absent top or bottom row of teeth, or to fit around any remaining natural teeth. We can fill partial teeth replacements with either a removable device or with a permanent method known as the “crown and bridge” technique, which permanently attaches prosthetic teeth to remaining natural teeth.
To create a customized denture for you, we take dental impressions of your mouth in our office so that we have a perfect replica of your gums, and we also take a series of detailed measurements of your bite. We will test the fit on a sample model that you try on and make any adjustments as necessary to create the best fit for you, and then the final appliance will be fabricated to simulate your natural teeth and gums.
If teeth are extracted in anticipation of being fitted for a denture, there will be a healing period as your gums adjust, and the fit of any prosthetic teeth may shift. You may need to wear a temporary denture while your mouth heals, and then be fitted for a more permanent device once you have fully recovered.
What Are The Costs For Dentures?
Many dental insurers provide full or partial coverage for prosthetic teeth, or the cost can be paid for out of pocket. In either case, we are available to work with you and answer any questions you might have about the process of being fitted for dentures in San Ramon. We look forward to seeing you in our office!
