Smile restoration with dentures in Putney

Missing teeth often bring to mind the idea of smile restoration with dentures for many patients in the Putney area. Dr. Etienne Potgieter of Gentle Dental Putney understands that patients with lost adult teeth may feel as though dentures are the only solution to their problem. However, thanks to continual advances in dentistry, there are other options including dental implants and bridges. Regardless, dentures continue to be a popular method because they are economical and they may be used temporarily until patients are able to find a more suitable replacement option for their smile concerns.

Dr. Etienne Potgieter of Gentle Dental Putney uses two types of dentures for smile restoration, full cosmetic dentures, and partial dentures. Both are removable and can provide patients with an effective way of addressing reduced chewing and speaking efficiency. Plastics are often used to make biocompatible restorations for patients in the area and provide a more beautiful, natural-looking denture. Some of these materials are extremely light and flexible making them comfortable for patients to wear for extended periods.

Patients with dentures must understand that they should be removed every night and left in a solution to keep them moist and clean. Cleaning is necessary for dentures just as it is for natural teeth so patients are educated on proper care and oral hygiene solutions when wearing full or partial dentures.

Smile restoration with dentures is always an economical choice, and some patients may enjoy coverage from their dental insurance plan for dentures. Our office works with patients and their insurance providers to reduce the out-of-pocket expense of many restorative dental treatments. They are happy to assist individuals in filing the proper forms for coverage and to make restorative solutions much more attainable even on tighter budgets.
