Most traditional dentures aren’t designed with attractiveness in mind. To make them more affordable, appearance and quality are two of several things dentists may sacrifice when designing these restorations. Fortunately, Dr. Grubb of Family Implant & Reconstructive Dentistry never compromises on quality dental care. He can provide you with carefully-crafted cosmetic dentures to give you a natural-looking, beautiful solution that’ll restore the function of your smile and confidence.
There’s a lot of denture options to consider — why not choose one which takes into account your unique oral health needs and smile goals? Dr. Grubb and our team proudly offer cosmetic dentures in the Havre de Grace Heights, Bayview Estates, and Osborne, MD areas.
Unlike traditional dentures, cosmetic dentures are uniquely designed with your specific facial structure in mind. Older fixtures are made to simply sit on your gum line, not taking into account the shape of your jaw, face, and neck. On top of that, these dentures are made with cheaper materials that may feel uncomfortable. Cosmetic dentures are designed to replicate the look and feel of your natural teeth while supporting your face.
Tooth loss isn’t just about your smile. Your teeth support the lower portion of your face. That’s why it’s important to choose a denture option that gives your oral health the boost it needs while avoiding the downsides of traditional fixtures.
Dr. Grubb can decide if cosmetic dentures are right for you during your consultation. Some of the benefits of these dentures include:
The first step to achieving a beautiful smile with cosmetic dentures is scheduling a consultation with Dr. Richard Grubb at our Havre de Grace, MD office. During this appointment, your dentist will evaluate your oral health and the strength of your mouth. He’ll also take into account your smile-goals to determine whether you’re a candidate for custom cosmetic dentures.
If deemed an ideal candidate, Dr. Grubb will start the process by taking digital scans of the structure of your mouth as well as impressions of any remaining teeth to develop a 3D model. This information will then be used to create your custom cosmetic dentures, which will be made while taking the natural shade of your teeth and shape of your oral cavity into account. In the meantime, you’ll be provided with a temporary set of dentures. After a few months, your dentures will be ready for fitting at our Havre de Grace, MD office.
Dentures that aren’t custom-made to fit properly in your mouth can disrupt the position of your jaw, causing symptoms such as ear pain. If not addressed, this can slowly impact your facial bones, joints, muscles, and nerves. By having Dr. Grubb create a cosmetic denture that seamlessly fits into your mouth, you’ll be able to resolve your ear pain symptoms.
While cosmetic dentures may seem more expensive at first, they actually last longer than traditional denture options due to the use of quality materials. On top of that, your dentures will be custom-made with your unique dental needs in mind. Not having to replace these dentures as much as you would traditional ones, will save you money in the long run. During your initial consultation, your dentist will be able to provide you with a cost estimate for your cosmetic restorations, as well as answer any questions you may have.
The roots of your teeth play an important role in maintaining your jawbone’s strength by providing it with necessary stimulation. If you suffer from missing teeth, the lack of stimulation can cause the density of your jaw to slowly deteriorate over time. Fortunately, cosmetic dentures are able to slow down this process since they’re specifically designed with your oral cavity’s structure in mind and apply pressure more evenly across your gum line.
Your dental insurance may cover a portion of your cosmetic dentures depending on whether they’re considered medically necessary. Dr. Grubb and our team recommends that you contact your provider to get an accurate understanding of your policy and benefits. At Family Implant & Reconstructive Dentistry, we also offer a variety of financing options to make your treatment more affordable and accessible.
Tooth loss isn’t just about your smile. Your teeth support your face and provide you with the confidence you need to tackle any social situation. That’s why you deserve a cosmetic denture option that works for you. Dr. Grubb and our dental team are here to provide you with the best dental care possible for restoring the look and feel of your smile.
