Dentures in Michigan City, IN
Losing all of your teeth poses a number of challenges. From being able to eat a varying diet to feeling confident about your appearance, you probably have a number of valid concerns. We are here to help.
At Weber Family Dentistry our dentists Dr. David Weber and Dr. Michael Kirk are committed to creating comfortable, attractive dentures that support the health and appearance of our patients.
Achieving a Good Fit
If your dentures do not fit properly, you will likely encounter a number of problems such as:
- Denture sores – Denture sores hurt and may cause you to have to remove your dentures. This limits the foods you can eat as well as how you speak and smile. Severe denture sores can lead to ulcerations that are difficult to heal.
- Adhesives – Gooey adhesives are inconvenient and can ruin the taste of your food. Prolonged use of denture adhesives can lead to zinc toxicity in addition to providing only temporary relief from a bigger problem.
- Loose dentures – Loose dentures can cause embarrassing moments when they come loose while you are eating or talking. You might feel restricted because no one wants their dentures to be a source of self-consciousness.
- Function – The main purpose of dentures is to allow you to chew and eat properly. When they don’t stay put, you have to eat a softer, restricted diet, putting your overall health at risk.
Attractive Natural-Looking Dentures in Michigan City
Custom Dentures at Weber Family Dentistry involve a process that starts with a conversation defining your concerns and expectations and ends with the delivery of a denture that is both functionally comfortable and aesthetically beautiful.
Our process combines technology with artistry. We start by building a base for your custom denture from 3D images of your own mouth so that the denture fits you well. That base is a platform on which your handmade denture is created. The artistry is obvious in the shaping and shading of the teeth and tissue, giving the denture a natural aesthetically beautiful appearance that you will be confident wearing.
In many cases, we can help secure your dentures with several strategically placed dental implants. This allows your dentures to lock in and stay where they belong while you go about your business. Implants also provide the added benefit of helping retain your bone structure and preventing further deterioration of your bone. That is good for your health and for your appearance.
