Dentures Near You
Having missing teeth can affect the appearance of your smile. It can also affect your overall confidence, which can take a toll on your everyday life. Tasks such as chewing, eating, and speaking can become complicated and unenjoyable. Dentures are used to replace teeth and restore the appearance and function of your teeth.
Are you looking to receive dentures in Yaletown, BC V6Z 2E8? There are two different types of complete dentures that are commonly used; conventional or immediate. Once all the teeth have been removed, and the gums are fully healed, conventional dentures are designed. About eight to twelve weeks after the extractions, your dentist will place the dentures into your mouth. Immediate dentures are fabricated in advance and placed in the mouth immediately after the teeth have been removed. With immediate dentures, you will not have to be toothless during your healing period. However, they may need to be readjusted to ensure they fit perfectly in the mouth.

How are Dentures Made?
Designing your dentures will require multiple appointments over the span of a few weeks. To begin, your dentist in Yaletown will take impressions and measurements of your jaw. Next, they will create models which you will “try in” a couple of times. The fit, shape, and colour of the denture will be evaluated before the final denture is made. Once the final denture is completed, adjustments are made and it is ready to wear.
