Full and Partial Dentures

Are you considering dentures for the first time and worry that they’ll look fake or hurt your mouth? Are you a denture-wearer who is tired of embarrassing accidents and awkward moments when they suddenly slip or shift when you’re out with friends?

At Sunrise Dental of Eugene, we’re on a mission to change the way you think about dentures. If you’re worried about the fake-looking versions your grandparents wore, prepare to be surprised! Dr. Jiyung Kang designs and crafts modern dentures that feel lighter, fit more comfortably, and look more like real teeth than ever before. 

Types of Dentures We Offer

Dr. Kang offers several types of dentures at our Eugene dental office to fit your specific needs:

  • Removable full dentures replace all upper or lower teeth.
  • Removable partial dentures treat partial tooth loss. 
  • Implant-supported full or partial dentures combine the best of both.

Removable dentures are held in place by natural suction and are designed to complement your smile and enhance your appearance.

Implant dentures are customized for you and designed to snap onto dental implants that have been placed in your jaw. The combination of prosthetic teeth that function well and the solid foundation of the implant rooted in your jaw provides the most stable tooth replacement available in dentistry today. 

Getting Started with Dentures

First, you and Dr. Kang will discuss your individual needs and determine which type of denture will work best for you. This process involves listening closely to your concerns and desires for your new smile and then customizing your dentures accordingly. 

You now know that there are several different types of dentures available, so let’s talk a little bit about appearance. Dentures made in your grandparents’ day were made to be as realistic as possible but were limited by the materials available. 

Today, dentists like Dr. Kang have access to updated materials that allow them to customize dentures that enhance your smile, not detract from it. When designing your dentures, we customize every detail, from the shade of the gum-colored base to the shape, size, shade, and position of the artificial teeth. We also consider your facial contours, skin coloring, and even your hair and eye color!

Our planning and attention to detail result in dentures that not only fit well but complement your smile and look as close to natural teeth as possible.
