Dentures/Partials have come a long way from the wooden false teeth to the beautiful, natural looking and highly functional elite dentures we have today. The shape, color/shade, contour and natural slight translucency and edge of the teeth are the main choices that will create your smile. The shade and type of “gum” area adds to the natural look.
The misconception of dentures is that they are a replacement of your teeth. Actually they are a placement of teeth for missing teeth area. Since they are removable they are not actual replacing teeth, which have roots and are stable. That however can be created with an implant supported permanent denture.
