With today’s innovative dental treatment options and focus on preventive maintenance, fewer patients than ever before find themselves in need of dentures. However, for those patients who do need to replace a full arch or both arches of teeth, dentures have come a long way too. At the Central Park South dental office of Dr. Laura Torrado, we are happy to design and craft custom dentures that look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth. Contact our team to schedule a consultation to discuss all of your tooth replacement options. Our state-of-the-art Manhattan dentistry practice welcomes patients from Queens, New Jersey, Connecticut, and other communities both near and far.
How are Dentures Made?
Dentures are crafted using a gum-colored base to support a row of replacement teeth. Our high custom dentures are crafted using durable acrylic for the base and porcelain, zirconia, or another natural looking, long lasting material for the teeth. We offer both conventional and immediate full dentures. Conventional dentures are made following the extraction of all teeth, once the tissue has had time to heal. Immediate dentures are fabricated prior to the extraction of teeth, and they are placed as the gums heal. In most cases, patients will need to have their dentures refit, once the gum tissue has fully healed. In rare cases, patients will need to replace their immediate denture.
