The popular perception of dentures isn’t a positive one: Pop culture’s take on dentures remains outdated and mocking, focusing on dentures that slip out of people’s mouths, get stuck in food, or just float eerily in a glass of water on grandma’s nightstand. But dentures have come a long way over the decades, and now they’re just as attractive, functional, and realistic as natural teeth.
Of course, wider availability of dentures also means that people seeking dentures are now faced with a more complicated decision. Which dentures are right for you? Perhaps you’re looking for a more permanent option, like implant dentures. Or maybe you’ve only lost a few teeth and are looking into partial dentures. But if you’re seeking to replace a whole row of teeth, we offer two different types of dentures: BPS® dentures and the Denture Fountain of Youth®. Choosing between these two options is largely dependent on what kind of result you’re looking for.
If you’re looking for a basic traditional denture that’s high quality while remaining affordable, BPS® Dentures are the way to go. An acrylic base ensures that the dentures will fit comfortably and securely, while accurately mimicking your natural gum tissue’s translucence.
And don’t worry: These dentures aren’t one-size-fits-all, cookie-cutter teeth. Instead, each tooth is designed separately, so you can select the shape, size, and color that best suit your goals. These teeth are created with fine layers of acrylic to achieve a look so natural, they’ll be virtually indistinguishable from real teeth. If you want, you can even pick each tooth individually!
With BPS® Dentures, you can have brand new teeth in just four appointments. The result is a highly durable set of dentures that are attractive, durable, comfortable, and even based on your natural bite for the best possible fit.
Denture Fountain of Youth®
If you want your dentures to do double duty, the Denture Fountain of Youth® takes dentures to the next level. These dentures are not only comfortable, beautiful, and sturdy — they’re designed based on the principles of neuromuscular dentistry to actually provide a “face lift” effect.
Here’s how it works: While many dentures are fitted to your teeth and gums, FOY ® Dentures take into account all the tissues, muscles, and bones of the mouth. This gives them an excellent fit, makes them comfortable and easy to speak and chew with, and helps support the muscles and skin of the face to provide structure to sagging tissues and make the wearer appear more youthful.
When it comes down to it, BPS® Dentures will get the job done effectively and affordably, but the Denture Fountain of Youth® is more than just a set of dentures. Not sure which option is right for you? The truth is that we utilize insights from both these approaches to dentures all the time and recommend a personalized approach based on your needs.
