Dentures are custom-made, artificial teeth and gums that are meant to fill gaps in the mouth from a result of tooth loss or removal in either full or partial fashion. Dentures are not permanently fixed to the interior of the mouth, and can easily be taken in and out of the mouth for cleaning.
Dentures used to be made of plastic or porcelain, but now they are typically made from a fabricated, hard resin material. None of these materials are quite as tough as real tooth enamel, but with proper maintenance and care, dentures can go years without being cracked or chipped. If you’re looking for dentures in Austin, TX, trust the team at Lakeway Cosmetic Dentistry. Our dental professionals would be happy to fit you with your next pair of dentures!

Benefits of Dentures
Several benefits come with dentures, the most sought after being improved functionality of the mouth for eating, smiling, and more. Some additional benefits of dentures include:
Improve Facial Features & Self-Esteem
When the mouth is missing teeth, facial muscles start to sag, which can completely change the way a person looks over time. With dentures, these facial muscles are supported again, bringing back how you look and giving you the confidence to smile again.
Improve Ability To Eat Comfortably
It’s tough to eat without a full set of teeth. Dentures allow you to eat all the food you loved when you still had teeth with no problem whatsoever. Eat your favorite foods in comfort with new dentures from Lakeway Cosmetic Dentistry.
Cost-Effective Dental Solution
Dentures are much more affordable than other artificial teeth products, like dental implants. This makes dentures more accessible to the average person who’s looking to improve the quality of their life by improving their dental health.
Easier Time Speaking
When you’re missing teeth, it can change the shape of your mouth entirely. In turn, this decreases your ability to enunciate and pronounce words correctly as you would when you had teeth. Dentures allow you to improve your speech and have an easier time talking.
Bring Back Your Smile
Of course, one of the biggest reasons that people get dentures is to restore their smiles. At Lakeway Cosmetic Dentistry, we love seeing the natural smile on our patient's faces once they see how their new smile looks. Bring back your smile with dentures from Lakeway Cosmetic Dentistry.
Enjoy A Better Quality Of Life
All of these benefits add up to considerably improving the quality of life for individuals with new dentures. From improved self-esteem, looks, speech, and the ability to eat what you love, dentures are one of the best ways to improve your quality of life if you struggle with dental health.
Types of Dentures
Hybrid dentures are fixed and permanent artificial teeth that feel, look, and function just like real teeth. This type of denture is stabilized within the jaw bone and is a combination of a traditional denture and a fixed bridge. Those that have significant bone loss in the jaw, and don’t want to have multiple teeth removed will be recommended hybrid dentures by Lakeway Cosmetic Dentistry.
Overdentures are a set of artificial teeth that snaps to a permanently implanted post in the mouth. These dentures are not permanently fixed to the mouth and can be removed and put back in through a snap and pull connector. Overdentures provide a great fit and stability and allow you to replace missing teeth in a way similar to dental implants, but without the high cost associated with tooth-by-tooth dental implant procedures.
Complete, or full dentures are what most people associate dentures with when they think of artificial teeth. These dentures take up the mouth completely and can be fully removed from the mouth and put back in with ease. For a full-mouth makeover that won’t break the bank, complete dentures are what we recommend to our patients here at Lakeway Cosmetic Dentistry. For complete dentures in Austin, TX, trust Lakeway Cosmetic Dentistry.
Denture Fitting Process
To begin, sign up online or give us a call to schedule your free consultation. We’ll discuss your needs and the different kinds of dentures available to you that fit within your insurance plan and budget.
We’ll Help Find The Right Denture for You
Next, we’ll get started on finding the right denture solution for your mouth. Based on the decision we make, different steps must be taken to ensure a proper and long-lasting fit.
If overdentures are decided upon, we’ll conduct a 3D x-ray using the innovative iCAT 3-D X-ray machine to inspect the bone and identify the proper spots for implant placement.
If hybrid dentures are the preferred option, we’ll fit your mouth for the dentures, and send you on your way with a temporary tooth solution while your dentures are being fabricated.
For complete dentures, it might take a few tries to get the right fit in your mouth. We’ll record the dimensions of your mouth, and work with you to customize and fit the dentures to last you for years to come. We’ll also provide you with a temporary tooth solution while waiting for your dentures to be properly fit.
You’ll Be Fitted With New Dentures
Once we go through the necessary processes to fit the type of denture that was chosen, you’ll be good to go with a new set of dentures. We’ll give you the information you need to properly take care of your new dentures so they can last for as long as possible.

Where Do I Start The Process Of Getting Dentures?
To get started on the road to new, lifestyle-improving dentures, simply reach out to Lakeway Cosmetic Dentistry online or over the phone. We’d love to help you along the journey that is getting new dentures!
What Type Of Dentures Is Right For Me?
This is one of the most common questions we receive regarding dentures, and we typically discover the answer during the initial consultation. You may have an idea of the type of dentures you want, but our dentists may think another solution is a better idea. We'll help you decide on the right dentures for you during your free consultation.
Can I Eat Normally With Dentures?
Depending on how long you’ve been without teeth, there may be a bit of a learning curve when it comes to chewing and eating with your new dentures. But, within a few months, you should have no problem eating just about anything you’d like, apart from chewing gum. Chewing gum is not recommended for those with dentures.
How Do I Know If Dentures Are The Right Choice For Me?
At Lakeway Cosmetic Dentistry, our team of dentists and dental hygienists will work with you to discover what kind of artificial teeth are right for you. From implants to veneers, and of course, dentures, we’ll help you decide what works best for you based on the current status of your dental health, as well as your budget.
Can I Sleep With Dentures In?
While you can wear your dentures at night, it’s not recommended that you sleep in them. By removing your dentures at night, you’ll be able to give your bones and gums a chance to take a break from the pressure of having the denture on throughout the day. You should also never wear your dentures for 24 hours straight without taking care of your denture hygiene routine. Dentures should always be thoroughly cleaned and stored in water during the night.
How Long Do Dentures Last?
The lifespan of dentures varies depending on how well they’re maintained in terms of cleaning and repair. With proper maintenance, you can expect dentures to last at least 5 years. Things like chips and cracks in dentures can affect their overall structural integrity, so it’s important to ensure you get your dentures repaired whenever damage is discovered.
Is There Any Pain Associated With New Dentures?
It’s normal to experience minor irritation and soreness while being fitted with dentures for the first time. For most people, this pain fades once your mouth has gotten accustomed to the dentures. If you had teeth removed before being fitted with dentures, it’s common to experience pain for days or weeks after your extraction. Due to the minor discomfort that can come with a new set of dentures, it’s recommended that you visit your dentist often to ensure that they’re fitting perfectly and not causing you any pain.
Can You Have Dentures Put In On The Same Day As A Tooth Extraction?
It is possible to have teeth removed and dentures put in on the same day. This process is what’s known as “immediate dentures.” Ask your dentist here at Lakeway Cosmetic Dentistry about the immediate dentures process and whether or not you’re a candidate for the procedure.
