What Types of Dentures are There?
While getting dentures for the first time can be a complicated and lengthy process, when you come to us at Lasting Smiles of Whitehouse Station you have an experienced team of dentists with you the entire time. And depending on the state of your teeth, there are two different types of dentures that we will recommend, either full or partial, removable or fixed.
Full Dentures: Those who suffer from periodontal disease, also known as gingivitis, or those missing the majority of their teeth will benefit the most from a full set of dentures. Then you have to decide if you want them to be removable or fixed in the mouth. Removable full dentures are held in place by suction or dental adhesive and are typically removed twice a day for cleaning. Full fixed dentures are held in place by dental implants and require minor dental surgery.
Partial Dentures: Partial dentures are a less invasive option compared to full dentures and are great for those missing only one tooth or a few teeth. Also known as removable partial bridges, partial dentures fit around your real teeth and fill in the gaps where needed.

The Denture Placement Procedure
Millions of people wear dentures every day to help them eat, speak, and smile with confidence. Dentures are not something to be afraid of, but something to be excited about. Lasting Smiles of Whitehouse Station wants you to be comfortable with the experience from start to finish. Here is what you can expect in a dental placement procedure with us:
Tooth removal: With full dentures and maybe even partial dentures you will need to undergo a dental extraction. We will remove any teeth prior to taking impressions of the gums.
Impression: Once we remove the teeth and your gums heal, we take impressions and place wax rims are in your mouth so you can establish a proper bite.
Teeth Selection: Then it’s time to choose the shape, size, and shade of the teeth for the dentures. And while dentures tend to keep their shade pretty well, you can always opt for professional dental whitening should they become stained or discolored.
Fitting: After the dental lab has processed your impressions and created your premade teeth, they will be sent back to our dental office for the fitting of your final denture. Your dentures may not fit perfectly right away, which is normal. If just adjustments are necessary, pay us a visit!
