Dentures are non-permanent restorative dentistry options that can replace missing teeth and bring your smile back to radiance. They can be full or partial, meaning they can either replace all or some of your teeth. Dentures can be made to resemble your natural teeth or you can opt for a completely new look altogether. However, both types of dentures are built according to your specific oral anatomy to help you achieve the most comfortable fit possible.
At Pearl White Dentistry, our Fort Lauderdale dentist, Dr. Natalia Benda-Celenski, performs a full evaluation to ensure the best option for your full or partial denture so you can be satisfied and confident when you flash your new smile. If you’ve been considering dentures, schedule a consultation with Pearl White Dentistry today to learn more about your choices and be on your way to a customized denture that will enhance your smile.
A complete or full denture replaces all the teeth along the top and/or bottom gum line. Full dentures are comprised of a removable frame or plate made of flexible polymer that fits snugly on your gums and feature artificial teeth made of resin. Dentures attach to the gums via an adhesive.
Significant advances in dental technology make full dentures more natural looking and comfortably fitting than ever before. Dr. Natalia and the team at Pearl White Dentistry can help you understand how dentures work and explore this and other services to address broken or missing teeth.
Partial dentures are a popular and convenient option for those who need minimal tooth restoration or still have some healthy, natural teeth in the gum line. While a complete denture replaces an entire row of missing teeth, partial dentures are intended to replace smaller sections of missing teeth.
Partial dentures are made to fasten around existing teeth and, like full dentures, are completely removable. Unlike full dentures, they are held in place by a plastic base that is the same color as your gums and a metal frame.
Partial dentures are an attractive option for many people because they allow you to keep your healthy teeth. They are often used to replace a few missing teeth and as a temporary solution for people planning to take advantage of other restorative and cosmetic dentistry services.
The dentures can be used to replace teeth anywhere in the mouth. Once placed, partial dentures can be expected to last a decade or more.
Advances in modern dentistry allow us to offer dentures made specifically to fit your mouth and colored to match your existing teeth. Dr. Natalia and the team at Pearl White Dentistry have helped people across Fort Lauderdale restore and enhance their smiles with partial dentures and other services.

There are many benefits of partial dentures for people seeking to replace broken or missing teeth:
Partial dentures can help prevent the loss of other teeth by keeping them in place and putting less wear and tear on your existing teeth. They can also be used on a temporary basis, allowing users to maintain a natural smile while they wait for other treatments like bridges or implants to be completed.

Whether you are getting fitted for partial or complete dentures, the process begins with an oral examination. After, impressions are taken of your jaw and any existing teeth to create a model from which your dentures will be cast. The model helps to ensure the fit is proper and comfortable before the final dentures are cast.
Whether you’ve lost some or all of your natural teeth due to gum disease tooth decay or injury, dentures and partials can greatly improve the overall health and appearance of your smile. Patients who obtain either dentures and partials can enjoy an array of benefits, including:
With proper maintenance, a partial or full denture can work properly for six or seven years before replacement is necessary. Notify your dentist if your denture starts to feel loose or uncomfortable.
Even with complete dentures, patients must continue to practice good oral hygiene. Be sure to brush your gums and tongue prior to inserting your dentures and brush and floss natural teeth if you have partials. Like natural teeth, dentures should also be cleaned daily by brushing to remove any food particles, plaque and to eliminate bacteria.
