Traditional Dentures & Removable Bridges
Removable bridges are partial dentures: replacements for missing teeth that you can take out. They are made of an acrylic resin and may incorporate porcelain or metal for additional structural support. Dentures can appear natural and provide a perfect smile. Dentures also help strengthen muscles controlling your facial expressions and help correct pronunciation problems or speech impediments caused by missing teeth.
At Ellicott City Smiles, Dr. Blum uses the artistic principles of cosmetic dentistry to design dentures that don’t look or feel like dentures, but like your own natural teeth.
Removable dentures, unlike implants, do not replace the root structure or bone loss from missing teeth, which may have detrimental effects on facial appearance and oral health. But for some people, they are the right choice, balancing functionality and aesthetics with cost.
