Partials: I used to smile, but not anymore. When I do smile I hold my head down because of the glittering metal from my partial.
Can't they make partials without the silver metal? ....Visitor from IL
There are partial dentures that have no metal. Two of them are called Cusil and Valplast.
They generally require no tooth preparation. I have made many Valplast partial dentures and patients love them because they are soft and comfortable and stay in well. I have not personally made Cusil partial dentures, but think they may also be a good choice for you.
Dentistry has many other choices for replacing missing teeth including implants and mini-dental implants that may interest you. Keep up your research and look for a local dentist who will work with you for a beautiful solution.
