What Are Dentures?
At Made Ya Smile, we hope to provide excellent dental care and find the right solutions for your needs. If you have lost an entire arch or several teeth in a row, a full or partial denture might be right for your smile so you can restore your ability to eat and speak and gain more confidence in your smile. Our practitioners have been helping individuals overcome the loss of their teeth with custom dentures for over 30 years. At our Cypress, TX clinic, we use a partial denture to fill in the gap left by missing teeth and uses the surrounding teeth as the support. In contrast, a full denture replaces all of the teeth in either the lower or upper arch. If you have been affected by tooth loss, allow our friendly team to see whether dentures are the right option for you.

Should I Get Dentures?
If you have damaged teeth that need to be extracted, or if you have already lost several or all of your teeth, dentures may be a solution for you. The practitioners at Made Ya Smile do recommend that you have healthy teeth in place to properly support a partial denture. Patients must also have healthy gum tissues and an adequate contour in the jaw as a solid foundation if you want to get full dentures. Depending on your unique situation, our general dentists can affix dentures to dental implants in the jawbone. A consultation will help our staff decide what is the most appropriate approach to take for your oral health. Made Ya Smile is happy to discuss the benefits of dentures while explaining your options.
How Do Dentures Work?
To begin the process, we take impressions of your upper and lower arches. If you have teeth that need to be extracted, Made Ya Smile is able to make a denture for you to wear temporarily while the gum tissues and surrounding area heal. Our clinic partners with a special lab to create comfortable dentures out of metal and resin or lightweight materials to make the appliances. For those who need partial dentures, we ensure that they match the color of your remaining teeth so it is more natural-looking. Once they are made, you will return to our practice to have them fitted securely and comfortably by practitioners who will give you instructions about how to clean and care for your dentures at home.
What Can I Expect After Getting Dentures?
They may not feel natural at first, but dentures will eventually make it easier to perform functions such as speaking and eating. Using a small amount of denture paste or other similar adhesives may help with keeping a full denture in the right place, while partial dentures are secured with plastic caps or metal that attach to the surrounding teeth. Made Ya Smile can make small adjustments to your dentures to help enhance the fit. Just like teeth, it is essential to take care of your dentures through brushing after meals using either a toothbrush or a denture brush.
Patients must soak removable dentures in water at night while you are sleeping to keep them from drying, which causes them to change shape. While these appliances are meant to replace your teeth, the dentists at Made Ya Smile urge you to continue visiting our practice regularly for routine care. At our Cypress, TX practice, we take the time to assess the fit of the dentures and can help remove any stains that have accumulated. With the right care, your dentures can serve you for a long time without needing to be replaced.
Are Dentures Covered by Insurance?
Dental insurance can offer partial or full coverage for all types of dentures in Cypress, TX. To understand your costs, our staff will call your insurance provider before we start your custom treatment. The team at Made Ya Smile is committed to helping you get the dental care you need, so if you do not have insurance or must pay out-of-pocket costs, we make it easy through several convenient payment options as well as third-party financing.
