Dentures in Vancouver

If you have missing teeth, we recommend replacing them promptly, as gaps in the teeth affect optimal chewing function, making it difficult to break up your food. Missing teeth also allow the surrounding teeth to shift out of place, causing misalignment issues that affect your oral health. Dentures are recommended to replace missing teeth and prevent more serious issues from occurring.

What Is a Denture?

A denture is a removable prosthetic device that is commonly used to replace missing teeth. Partial dentures can be used to replace single or multiple teeth, while a full denture can replace a whole set. Dentures are fabricated in the dental lab, where the fake teeth can be made from porcelain or acrylic resin. In both cases, your dentist will match the fake teeth with your natural teeth so they blend perfectly in your mouth.

How Long Do Dentures Last?

With proper care, your dentures can last for many years. It’s important to clean your dentures daily, using a soft bristle brush and non-abrasive toothpaste. Certain whitening toothpastes may contain abrasive materials which will scratch and damage the dentures. We also advise sanitizing your dentures overnight in a specialized denture cleaning solution.
