After sliding on MINT dentistry sunglasses, your procedure will begin. When applicable, your dentist may extract teeth before taking impressions that will be used to craft your dentures. Partial dentures will be shaded to match your natural teeth for a seamless appearance. After your dentures are made, you dentist may make small adjustments so they are comfortable, secure, and look natural in your mouth. Your dentist will also discuss the best way to care for your dentures, including how to clean and store them.
