A complete denture replaces all the natural teeth and provides support for cheeks and lips and partial removable dentures are a dental appliance that fills in the space created by missing teeth and fills out your smile.
Before– This patient presented to Dr. Jack Hosner of Portage, Michigan with severely worn teeth due to acid erosion from a habit of sucking on lemons. Finances were limited. He could not wear a traditional removable partial denture due to excessive bone growth on the sides of his mouth nor could he afford to restore his teeth to normal or to have dental implants. During– Dr. Hosner built up two of his teeth on the right side to help retain a removable “Snap-on Smile”. After– This picture shows the “Snap-on Smile” in place. It grabs onto the existing teeth and is inserted and removed by the patient.
Before– Same as Above After– Same as Above
Here is a picture of the “Snap-on Smile” out of the mouth.
Before– This patient came to Dr. Jack Hosner of Portage, MI because of an already worn, old upper denture and extremely worn and decayed lower front teeth, as well as missing lower back teeth.
After– A new upper denture was fabricated. The lower front teeth were built back up with bonded fillings and porcelain crowns. A new lower removable partial denture was made to replace the lower back teeth.
