Full & Partial Dentures

When you hear the word “dentures,” do you immediately think of the full dentures your grandparents had? Maybe they looked fake or unnatural, or you even remember awkward moments when their dentures slipped out of place.

Modern Dentures for All Ages

Fortunately, modern dentures at Los Gatos Dentistry are a far cry from those you probably remember from your grandparents’ day. Modern dentures can be full or partial and are easier than ever to match to your existing teeth for a natural look. 

You may automatically associate dentures with the older generation, but tooth loss is common for all ages, and even patients in their 20s, 30s, and 40s can benefit from dentures. Anyone who has missing teeth may be a good candidate for tooth replacement with full or partial dentures.

Dr. Patricia Phan will customize your dentures for a comfortable fit, and a look so natural that nobody but you and your dentist will know that they’re not your real teeth.

Full & Partial Dentures in Los Gatos

Like a dental bridge, dentures replace missing teeth. Unlike bridges, which are permanent, dentures can be removed from your mouth and replaced. 

When you come to Los Gatos Family Dentistry to replace missing teeth, we will help you determine if dentures are right for you. If you are missing a few teeth, Dr. Phan would recommend a partial, and if you are missing all upper teeth, lower teeth, or both, full dentures would be the right choice for you. Full dentures consist of a gum-colored acrylic base that fits over your own gums, while partial dentures are designed to fit in and around remaining teeth to complete your smile. 

Dentures Customized for Your Smile

Whichever we choose, Dr. Phan will take plenty of time with you to plan the look of your dentures. From the shade, shape, and size of each artificial tooth to their position in the acrylic base, your dentures will look beautifully natural. 

Whichever option is right for you, the first step is to take impressions of your mouth that we send to a custom dental lab, along with our specifications for the look of your dentures. The laboratory will create a wax mockup of your dentures that we will use to refine their look, fit, and feel. 

The goal is to create a set of final dentures that meet and exceed your expectations.
