Your smile is extremely important to our team. We want to encourage you to replace your missing teeth so you can have the strong oral health and the beautiful smile you want. Consider getting dentures as an excellent method for filling in gaps in your smile.

Dentures come in two types, partial or complete. Both restorations replace teeth and offer natural-looking results, but they do it slightly differently. Partial dentures replace one or more missing teeth in a row, and attach to the remaining natural teeth on both sides of the gap. Complete dentures suction to the roof of the mouth and replace all of your teeth.

It’s quite normal for dentures to feel mildly uncomfortable when you first wear them. Don’t worry, you will get used to them! They may increase saliva production, which will probably take some adjustment. To quickly get used to the dentures, practice chewing and talking when they are in place. You can do it!

If you have missing teeth, it may be time to consider dentures as the right appliance for you and your smile! Please call Dr. Paul Lee at 703-352-9600 and schedule an appointment in the Fairfax, Virginia area. Dr. Paul Lee and our team will be happy to examine your smile and recommend the restoration that can best benefit you. We look forward to helping you replace the gaps in your smile!
