Happy patient with permanent dentures

When it comes to replacing teeth with dentures in Santa Cruz, Calif., you have two main options: removable or permanent dentures.

Losing teeth? Living in uncomfortable dentures? Dr. Matiasevich can build you a new set of teeth in just 1 visit.

Wanting to avoid dentures all together? Dentures are often ill-fitted, uncomfortable and unattractive, so it’s no surprise most people stop wearing them. They’re not only inconvenient and unsecure, they tend to slip and don’t act and look like a natural tooth.

Permanent teeth locked down with dental implants, on the other hand, allow you to eat, chew and talk with confidence. Dr. Matiasevich can build you a new smile that is natural-looking  and helps you look younger.

 

Advantages of Permanent Dentures

  • Permanently attached teeth while you sleep in just one day with IV sedation
  • Comfortable, secure fit
  • Eat whatever foods you like
  • Talk with confidence
  • Enjoy your active lifestyle without worrying about your teeth
  • Minimally invasive procedure
  • Gain a more youthful look
  • Proven, world-class procedure

Watch How Permanent Dentures Can Change Your Life:

How Much Do Permanent Teeth Cost?

This is one of the first questions people ask when deciding between removable and permanent dentures. The answer is kind of tricky, as it depends on your unique circumstances and the complexity of your procedure.

Removable dentures are often more affordable at first, but you’ll have to replace them and they often end up costing more in the long run. Permanent ones may be more expensive, but they usually last a lifetime and usually end up being a smart investment.

Our office offers payment options to fit your budget. Our financial coordinator will go over these details at your complimentary consult.

The Look of Permanent Dentures

There’s definitely a distinct difference in the look of permanent and removable teeth. That’s because removable teeth simply aren’t designed to be worn 24/7.

While removable dentures can be nice and white, they don’t quite capture the look of your natural teeth. This is another reason why permanent teeth locked down with dental implants look and feel more natural, but also help you look younger.

How Do Permanent Dentures Feel?

When it comes to function and feel, permanent dentures have a distinct advantage over removable teeth. Your diet isn’t limited, so you can eat whatever you want (even hard and sticky foods). Permanent dentures also don’t slip or cause sores like removable teeth.
