Are you missing most or all of your teeth? To restore your smile, Dr. Travis E. Hampton may recommend dentures in Covington, Georgia. A denture is a removable appliance that restores your smile by replacing missing teeth and tissues. At Alcovy Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, our dentist offers complete dentures and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the natural teeth are missing. Partial dentures are used when one or more of the natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. Ask our dentist which type of denture is right for you.
The denture making process takes a few weeks and appointments. After our dentist decides which type of denture is best for your needs, he will take impressions and measurements of your jaws and how they relate to each other. Using this information, several models will be constructed in the exact shape and position of your future dentures. Our dentist will have you try on the model several times so the fit, color, and shape can be assessed and adjusted. After everything is satisfactory, your final denture is cast. Any final adjustments will be made as needed and then you will wear your denture home.
