Procedure Details


Partial Denture Smile Makeover

This patient requested that his removable partial dentures not look like most that he had seen.  He did not like the metal clasps showing and how they all looked like a mouthful of fake dental work.  We did a complete dental exam and x-rays and found that he had periodontal disease with decay and a breakdown of his occlusion (bite).  The treatment was presented and options were given and he selected a removable option that would not have visible metal clasps when he smiled.  The patient underwent periodontal therapy and got control over the bleeding gums and stabilized the condition with the help of our hygienist.  The teeth were prepared and temporaries placed based off of a wax-up that duplicated what the teeth would look like when finished.  The crowns were made and the partials were tried in to verify fit and cosmetics.  The fit was perfect and the patient returned for delivery of crowns and partials.  On the delivery date, the teeth were cemented in and the partials placed.  The bite was perfect and the patient was very pleased with the outcome.  He loved his new smile and the way his mouth felt now that the infected gums were under control.  He could eat better, felt better about his smile and was confident in showing it off.  A beautiful result!
