What are dentures?

Dentures are removable dental appliances made up of prosthetic teeth set into a pink, gum-colored base. Dentures are custom made to fit your smile comfortably and securely, and we use high-quality materials that mimic the look and feel of natural teeth and gum tissues to give your smile an aesthetic, natural appearance. Full dentures, which are also called complete dentures, are used to replace a full arch of teeth. Depending on your personal dental needs, a complete denture can be used to restore your upper arch, lower arch, or both arches.

What is a partial denture?

A partial denture is also used to replace multiple missing teeth, but they are recommended when some natural teeth still remain in the smile. Unlike full dentures, which rest completely on the gums, a partial denture is anchored to the remaining natural teeth through the use of a framework or clasps. Dr. Steven A. Beuligmann, our talented dentist, will help you determine which type of dentures in Carlsbad, California, would be the best option for restoring your smile.
