Full and Partial Dentures
More than 1,000 years ago, humans began experimenting with dentures by attaching animal or human teeth to metal bands. By the 16th century, the Japanese had refined the making of dentures by carefully carving teeth out of wood. Later versions added ivory teeth for more attractive dentures, but it was not until the late 1700s that the first porcelain dentures were debuted. Today, our Los Angeles full dentures expert offers dentures that are made using the most advanced dental technology and materials for dentures that are as close to natural as possible.
Partial Dentures Los Angeles
These dentures are ideal for patients who are only missing a few teeth and do not want or are not candidates for dental bridges. They consist of prosthetic teeth on a frame that attaches to nearby teeth using attachments or clasps. Our Los Angeles partial dentures expert can help you decide if partial dentures are right for you.
If you are a candidate for partial dentures, our expert in partial dentures will make a dental impression of your teeth. This is used to design your new denture. Once your denture has been finished, you will try it on for size and appearance, and you can leave with your new smile ready to use. Our expert in partial dentures in Los Angeles will explain how to wear your new denture as well as the proper care for your partial. It will need to be cleaned just like your natural teeth, but you will need to take special precautions to avoid damaging it, the frame or the clasps.
