Patients who have lost a tooth, or several teeth, might find that their self-confidence has diminished. They may be embarrassed about the way they look, and hide their teeth as they talk, laugh, or smile. Lost teeth don’t mean that you have to live with the gaps and spaces. In fact, addressing the missing teeth as soon as possible is an effective way to ensure that surrounding teeth do not shift out of place; consequently resulting in more spaces and gaps.
Partial dentures and full dentures are two types of dentures that are available through Dr. Luu’s office. Full dentures replace an arch of teeth, top, bottom, or both. Partial dentures replace one or more missing teeth, and fit into the mouth around the existing teeth. Partial dentures at Gentle Care Dentistry of San Gabriel Valley are made with a combination of metal and and/or plastic resin, which allows them to look natural and feel great. The metal is often integrated into the back of the partial to give it strength without being visible to others. These partials easily snap into place over the gums and are a wonderful alternative to other restorative procedures.
Dr. Luu of Gentle Care Dentistry of San Gabriel Valley offers a variety of cosmetic procedures and restorations for patients who are experiencing all types of dental concerns and needs. While dental implants and bridges are often considered by patients who want to replace their lost, natural teeth, dentures are an affordable alternative for many. Patients can use dentures to fill in their smiles after tooth loss. From dental implants to dentures, Dr. Luu and her staff have the experience to improve any smile that comes into her office, both young and old!
