If you want to replace missing teeth, you have plenty of options from which to choose. Dentures, fixed bridges, and dental implants are all excellent options, so how do you know which is right for you?

Full and partial dentures are probably the best-known tooth replacement in Greeley, CO. They’re affordable, work well for many people, and restore appearance and function.

But you may remember your grandparents’ struggle with uncomfortable, fake-looking dentures and wonder if things have changed. Fortunately, they have, and many of the concerns that adults had about wearing dentures no longer apply.

"Everyone Will Notice My Dentures."

Decades ago, dentures were artificial-looking because there wasn’t access to high-quality, lifelike materials that there is now. Today your dentist can customize your dentures down to the shape, shade, and size of each tooth.

“I Don’t Need a Dentist When I Have Dentures.”

If you don’t have teeth, why do you need a dentist? This common misconception about dentures couldn't be further from the truth. Visit your dentist once a year, or as instructed, so your dentist can examine the soft tissues of your mouth and ensure that your dentures are fitting comfortably.

"My Dentures Will Last Forever"

Even though your dentures are artificial teeth that won’t decay, they have a lifespan just like any other dental restoration. On average, you will need to replace your dentures every five to eight years. You can get the most longevity by being careful when cleaning your dentures and checking in with your dentist at least once a year.
