The inside of my denture is rough

Question : The outside surface of my denture is smooth. Why is the inside of my denture is rough?

Dentures.Com.Ph Answer : The inside of the denture is not polished. The inside of denture is what we call denture bearing tissue side. This side of denture should have an intimate adaptation to your denture bearing tissues. If the inside is polished, the fit will be affected. Although it’s not smooth, it should not cause sore spots. If you notice sore spots in your mouth you would need to have the offending area of your denture adjusted by your dentist.

Question : How Much Does fixed bridge Cost?

Dentures.Com.Ph Answer : Naturally, the cost for fixed prosthodontic treatment varies from place to place and according to the specific procedure. Upon examination, your dentist will tell you the fixed bridge cost. Of course it is impossible to give a definite price without performing an examination. As a general rule, having a fixed partial prosthodontic treatment performed by an Prosthodontist will be more expensive than having it done by a general dentist. For more information on Prosthodontists, ask the the national dental association in your country.

Denture Teeth Whitening

Question : Hi. What can I use to whiten my dentures?

Dentures.Com.Ph Answer: You can not whiten your dentures like you can whiten your teeth. If you require whiter denture teeth, you should visit a dentist and have a new set of dentures be made for you. If your dentures became “darker” due to food accumulation and stains, have your dentist clean your dentures.
