A denture or partial denture is a removable dental appliance that replaces missing teeth and the surrounding tissues. There are two kinds of dentures, complete or partial. Complete dentures are used when all of the natural teeth are missing. Partial dentures are used to fill in missing teeth when there are still natural teeth present.
Composite (tooth colored) fillings are mostly used for fillings in today’s dentistry to treat teeth that have been affected by cavities, cracks, or are broken. Composite filling material can be matched to natural tooth color and are excellent for front teeth as well as back teeth.
