Traditional Dentures

Traditional dentures are a removable appliance that can replace a section or complete jaw of missing teeth. There are no requirements to become a candidate for dentures, you simply need to have missing teeth and that’s it.

Adhesives hold full dentures in place on the top of your mouth. Bottom dentures use adhesives and suction on the bottom to stay in place. Although they can replace your missing teeth, they aren’t supported by anything besides adhesives and suction. You can, however, opt for implant-supported dentures that use dental implants to keep themselves in place. Partial dentures use clasps on adjacent teeth to keep themselves in place.

With traditional dentures, it’s common to lose bone in your jaw since there are no longer tooth roots inside it to generate bone. When you lose bone in your jaw, it’s common for your face to look older. You may notice a sunken appearance, more wrinkles around your mouth and nose, and even a sagging look to the lower third of your face. Although you can avoid these effects with implant-supported dentures, you still have to deal with fragile and unsightly tooth replacements. Plastic and cheap materials usually make up most dentures. Unfortunately this means they need replacing every 10 years or so. They are also prone to staining.


CeraSmile<strong><em><span class="ILfuVd"><span class="e24Kjd">™</span></span></em></strong> is completely different than dentures. Instead of relying on suction or adhesives to stay in place, CeraSmile uses dental implants. CeraSmile is also an implant bridge, not a denture. It also takes your unique jaw structure into consideration to give you a tooth replacement option that enhances your appearance. CeraSmile uses dental implants to restore your youthful facial structure. If you’ve been without teeth for some time, you will notice a change in wrinkles soon after your treatment!

CeraSmile is also different from traditional dentures because it’s made completely with yttria-stabilized zirconia, the highest quality zirconia available. This means you don’t have to worry about staining or cheap looking tooth restorations. CeraSmile can even look just like your natural teeth once did. Each CeraSmile is custom-made to enhance your appearance in the best way possible.

One of the last major differences between CeraSmile and dentures is that they are a one-day procedure. With CeraSmile, you can have your dental implants placed and enjoy your beautiful new smile all in the same day. Enjoy a better functioning smile that looks amazing and rejuvenates your face in just one day.
