Before and After Replacement Denture


Susan originally consulted with Dr. Goodman to look into options for replacing her old, worn denture. Her main goals were to have a new denture that was natural looking from her personal perspective and comfortable. She did not want the brightest shade possible on her new prosthetic, but teeth that looked realistic and practical for her. After impressions were taken on her initial visit, Susan returned for two follow-up "try-in" visits to ensure that the wax-up model was correct in size, shape and that the details were just right. When sending the denture back to our talented lab to have it processed, Susan called back saying she did not feel confident as she did when she was in the office and wanted another visit with the denture to make sure it was going to be exactly what she had been hoping for. The lab returned her models so that Susan and Dr. Goodman could go over details before having it finished. A few cosmetic changes with the shade and style of the teeth were made and Dr. Goodman and Susan discussed the differences between dentures made 20 years ago, and dentures made with today's technology and skilled craftsmanship. The dentures were sent back to our lab and processed. The dentures returned and Susan was is very happy with her new smile! The details of her new denture display how artfully detailed dentures can be crafted. Our local lab can create opaqueness and variance in shade and size of each tooth to mimic real teeth is specific to each person, to allow dentures to appear natural and customized.

"My experience with Dr. John Goodman DDS was outstanding. The entire staff was courteous and very accommodating. Dr. Goodman made me feel very comfortable but also finally gave me hope for having that "beautiful smile" that we (with not so good teeth) always wish for. I left feeling elated and excited for the first time about a dental appointment."
