People wear dentures to replace missing teeth so they can chew effectively and smile with confidence. Dentures are made of either acrylic (plastic) or metal.
Full dentures, to replace all your own teeth, fit snugly over your gums. They will help you to eat comfortably and speak clearly, and will improve your confidence and self-esteem.
A partial denture fits around your remaining natural teeth and replaces the missing ones to give the appearance of a full smile and to restore function. A partial denture may be made to clip onto your remaining teeth for extra stability.
