Odessa, TX Cosmetic Dentures Revitalize Your Look
In 2012, a study was conducted that determined 10% of US adults who fall between the ages of 50 to 64 are fully edentulous (without teeth). 90% of those patients choose dentures to restore their functional smile, and Dr. Steve W. Cobb’s goal is to help them achieve the most effective result for both their overall wellbeing and their sense of self-confidence. With cosmetic dentures, our team is able to provide additional support for facial muscles, improve the patient’s oral comfort, and provide dramatic aesthetic improvements. Contact our Odessa, TX practice today if you have any questions, or if you’re ready to schedule your first appointment. New patients from Big Spring, TX and other nearby cities are always welcome.
Why are cosmetic dentures the right choice for me?
Traditional dentures have been relied on for many years now, but their pitfalls are numerous and significant. Many patients only regain a small percentage of their original chewing ability, and deteriorating facial muscles are likely to occur over time, which can age a person’s appearance prematurely.
In comparison, cosmetic dentures are designed to specifically fit the jaw bone in a way that supports the facial muscles and prevents noticeable sagging and wrinkling for a more youthful appearance. Additionally, the dentures are crafted by using injection mold acrylic bases, which result in a more customized and secure fit when compared to the traditional method of dental impressions and heat.
The Creation Process
Our team can determine whether a cosmetic denture will work for your unique situation during a smile restoration consultation. Then, we take the following steps to ensure the positive results you deserve:
- Dr. Steve W. Cobb will capture digital X-rays, intraoral photos, and detailed impressions of your natural smile in order to craft a personalized denture that fits your smile securely and comfortably.
- Our team can use digital images to let patients essentially “try on” their new dentures before any actual treatment begins. Patients will be able to alter the colors and the sizes of certain teeth to create a prosthetic that they feel satisfied with.
- A trusted dental laboratory will create your cosmetic dentures, always keeping durability and superior craftsmanship in mind.
- Patients will finally return to our Odessa practice so that we can place the finished denture and make any final alterations – restoring your strong bite, your confident smile, and your quality of life.
