If you have had years of dental problems or are embarrassed by your teeth, our trust-building team at San Mateo Center for Cosmetic Dentistry can help you find the restoration procedure right for you. You could be a candidate for complete or partial dentures or dental implants.
A removable replacement for missing teeth, dentures can be made in advance and positioned as soon as the natural teeth are removed. Our San Mateo Center for Cosmetic Dentistry dental lab creates dentures that look just like natural teeth: attractive, healthy teeth.
If you still have some healthy, natural teeth, you can benefit from dentures without having your healthy teeth extracted.
Partial dentures fill in the gaps, replacing missing teeth to complete a smile. Partial dentures, as well as porcelain veneers, can prevent natural teeth from moving. Many Foster City dental practices can complete these procedures in one day.
Many dental insurance providers cover most or all of the cost of dentures. Call us at the San Mateo Center for Cosmetic Dentistry and we can help you find out if your dental insurance covers dentures.
Another alternative for Foster City people with missing teeth is to receive dental implants. A dental implant is a permanent tooth restoration that is anchored into the jawbone, actually replacing both the root and crown of the tooth. Dental implants have many advantages, such as preventing jaw bone recession which can occur when natural teeth are removed. However, not all Foster City dentistry patients are good candidates for implants. Call San Mateo Center for Cosmetic Dentistry at 650-342-9016 for a dental implant consultation.
Dental implants can also be used to anchor a removable denture. The denture is ‘snapped on’ or attached to the implants for no-slip confidence.
The combination denture/implant smile restoration solution is being used successfully by many Foster City sedation dentists. It is usually more affordable than dental implant replacements for several natural teeth.
Replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health, improving your ability to eat and speak. If you are embarrassed to smile or laugh, it’s time to bring back your beautiful smile!
