Custom-made Dentures Restore Comfort and Aesthetics to Your Smile
If you need dentures, Dr. Robert Hessberger offers a number of options that can restore your comfort and confidence. We offer both traditional removable dentures and implant-supported dentures. Thanks to extremely precise fabrication techniques and advanced restorative materials, our removable dentures look and feel natural.
All of our dentures are custom-made to match any remaining natural teeth and complement your overall appearance. Contact the office of Robert W. Hessberger, D.D.S. to learn more about dentures provided at our Chicago, IL, practice.
Dentures are natural-looking prosthetic teeth designed to restore the ability to chew and enunciate, while helping you reclaim a normal, healthy appearance. A full denture can replace your entire dental arch, while a partial denture can replace one or more consecutive missing teeth.
A traditional denture has a gum-colored plastic base, and will fit snugly over your alveolar ridge, or dental arch. In many cases, we can provide dentures immediately following extraction of decayed or damaged teeth. When you have fully healed, you will return for your permanent restoration.
An implant-supported denture is anchored to small implant posts placed in your jawbone, so it will not slip out of place while you speak, or while you eat any foods your choose. Whenever possible, we recommend implant-supported dentures to our patients because they can provide virtually the same level of function as natural teeth.
All of our dentures are carefully fabricated at an outstanding dental lab. Our ceramists use advanced materials, and they will choose the color of porcelain that most closely resembles any remaining teeth. Using photos and impressions of your smile, they will also design restorations that will look natural within the overall structure of your face.
