At Enamel Dentistry Lantana Place, we understand that treatments aren’t one-size-fits-all, which is why we offer Barton Creek patients a variety of options for missing teeth, like dentures, dental implants, and bridges. Often when people think of dentures, it conjures up visions of ill-fitting, oversized, unnatural-looking teeth. That’s not the case with our full and partial dentures! We use the latest technology to create dentures that not only fit perfectly but look nearly indistinguishable from natural teeth. And we do it all while having a great time! Sip some beer or wine or watch a little Netflix (or both!) while we get to work on restoring your smile.
As you might have noticed, we do things a bit differently at our office. As an independent female-owned and operated office, we’re anything but corporate. Dr. Jade Wylie is passionate about helping you have a happy, healthy smile, whether through restorative, cosmetic, or general dentistry. Dr. Wylie takes the mystery out of dental care and is always happy to explain anything that’s unclear. This is a no-fear, no-intimidation zone! You can feel free to talk openly to us about your dental health or any concerns you have. Have dental anxiety? No worries! We have many ways to help you relax, including several types of sedation. With Dr. Wylie’s calm, communicative approach, you’ll feel great about making decisions about your dental care.
So, what can you expect when you visit us for dentures? We’ll start by making you comfortable (Can we get you any refreshments? Crack a few jokes?) and then take a look at your mouth. We offer two types of dentures: full dentures and partials. The type you’ll need will depend on how much tooth loss you have. In some cases, you may need to have teeth extracted for full dentures to allow them to sit properly in your mouth. We understand this can feel intimidating, but don’t worry – we’ll review all your restorative options carefully before moving forward.
We can do extractions and send you home with a pair of temporary dentures on the same day, so you can maintain your smile while your permanent dentures are being created. This will also help promote better healing. Once they’re ready, we’ll have you come back to make sure the new set looks and fits perfectly. Although dentures aren’t a permanent solution to tooth loss, like dental implants, a new set can last 5-7 years with proper care.
We know discussing things like tooth loss and restorative procedures isn’t most people’s idea of a good time. But we promise we make it enjoyable (and dare we say, fun)! And we do it all using state-of-the-art technology that makes your care as comfortable and convenient as possible. When you’re searching for solutions for your smile in the Barton Creek area, don’t be shy – contact us today to schedule an appointment!
