Dentures can be an easy solution to an incomplete smile.

Although most people think that dentures and partials are only for older people, the fact is that many Americans have one or more missing teeth or have teeth that need to be replaced. This includes young adults. Missing teeth can be a sensitive subject. You may feel embarrassed to laugh or to talk, and a compromised smile can be a liability in social and professional settings. Even if you manage to go through life opening your mouth as seldom as possible, missing teeth can give your face a sunken look, making you appear older than your actual age.

Dentures are crafted from an impression of your teeth and designed to fit snugly, but comfortably in your mouth. Partial dentures are often held in place with metal clasps, while full dentures need adhesive. Dentures are often a great option for people who are missing teeth, but are not good candidates for dental implants, or cannot afford them.
