Dentist in Miami Beach
Dentures are a removable replacement for one or more missing teeth. They are used to restore both function and aesthetics. Dentures are custom-fabricated to fit your mouth and match the appearance of your natural teeth. The fit of your dentures may be adjusted as needed to ensure comfort and proper function.
Complete dentures replace the full upper or lower set of teeth. Partial dentures are used to replace one or more teeth when some natural teeth remain. This prevents teeth from shifting into the space left by missing teeth. Dr. Valls would examine the conditions of your teeth, and after that would determine which denture would be perfect for you. If you think dentures can be the right choice for you, schedule an appointment with Dr. Sandor Valls.
