Dentists don’t make your denture meaning the Dental Prothetist has no idea what you look like or what look you are trying to achieve. The denture is being made with very little information about you!
Dentures are highly customised appliances and there are many variables to take into account with making a denture – your facial features, teeth selection including colour and size, gum colour, and smile lines – just to name a few. Communication between the Dental Prosthetist and the customer is important at all stages of the denture being make. Communication results in a perfect fit and perfect look for you as an individual, rather that the ‘one size fits all’ mentality.
This removable partial denture usually consists of replacement teeth set in pink or gum coloured acrylic resin. One or more wire clasps are placed around the natural teeth to assist in retention of the partial denture.
Chrome Partial Denture
It is the best and most durable partial denture, made of a metal framework which clasps and rests on the natural teeth. The denture is also supported by your gums, without placing undue pressure on them. The teeth are shaped to receive the occlusal rests. Modern cast metal dentures are typically made of strong alloys such as cobalt-chrome, which are thin, like plastic, but do not break as easily.
