Have you lost most or all of your natural teeth? Has eating and speaking become difficult? If you would like to restore the beauty and functionality of your smile, ask Gerald V. Hansen, DDS, about dentures in Reno, Nevada. A denture is a removable dental appliance that replaces missing teeth and the surrounding tissues and restores your smile. Dentures can do the following:
- Restore your smile
- Restore your ability to eat and speak properly
- Maintain your face shape
- Prevent any remaining teeth from shifting
Our office provides complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing and partial dentures are used when some teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. Dentures take two weeks and appointments to make and place. Once Dr. Gerald Hansen decides which type of denture is right for you, he will make several impressions and measurements of your jaw. Models will be made in the shape of your future denture. You will try these on so our dentist can check the color, shape, and fit and make adjustments. Once everything is satisfactory, the final denture is made and any final adjustments are made.
We encourage you to contact Hansen Cosmetic Family Dentistry today to learn more and to schedule your next appointment.
