Failure to treat missing teeth impairs oral and dental health. Each tooth is designed to complement another. When one tooth is lost, other teeth slide or bend towards the gap formed by the missing tooth. The tooth in the opposite jaw also extends into the cavity. These unusual tooth movements lead to extraordinary situations both in the tooth and in the gums. In addition, damage occurs to the gums and bone tissues. Teeth begin to rot, as normal and natural dental contacts are impaired and thus physiological cleaning cannot be performed. Cosmetic Dentures are prostheses applied in partial tooth deficiencies or in excessive loss of substance in a single tooth. They complement the patient’s teeth, which leads to impaired teeth, speech and aesthetic appearance. Such prostheses are applied to ensure that the patient has resistance to lift the chewing force and to be aesthetically similar to other dental structures.
What is Cosmetic Denture?
Aesthetic prosthesis; is a procedure performed by aesthetic physicians and the aim is to complete the missing teeth and to get a beautiful appearance by fixing the problems in the gums and harmonizing the patient's face. Cosmetic Dentures are performed because of the application of exaggerated forms that are far from natural and the gum problems are not resolved. Artificial teeth prepared with artificial materials instead of teeth or teeth lost due to various reasons are called Cosmetic Dentures. Prosthetic Applications are made to compensate for the loss of teeth and bones in the patient when gum diseases cannot be cured or are delayed for treatment.
Cosmetic Denture Treatment, which removes the possible losses of the patient aesthetically and functionally, can be applied with different methods depending on the application purpose and the patient's dental structure. Different treatment methods such as fixed prosthesis, movable prosthesis, total prosthesis, partial prosthesis, precision retaining prosthesis and over implant prosthesis are used.
How to use Cosmetic Dentures?
Movable prostheses should not be used 24 hours a day, however compatible and comfortable with the mouth. When used continuously, a rapid melting will occur in the jaw bones and then it will be difficult to use a different prosthesis. For this reason, Cosmetic Dentures should be removed at least 8 hours a day and must be protected in a container that filled with water or wrapped in a damp towel. The best time for this rest is night sleep. Prostheses should never be kept in hot water. The storage container should be kept out of the reach of children and pets. Removable prostheses can hurt gums, injure, pressure on natural teeth in the mouth, create pain and tenderness, feel strangeness, a bad taste in the mouth, saliva may increase. It is normal to have such complaints.
In such cases, the patient should immediately contact the dentist. Patients who previously used prostheses can get used to it more difficult because it makes their new prosthesis feel different than before. In such cases, if they use their old prosthesis immediately, it will take longer to get used to their new prosthesis. The patient should strive to get used to their new prosthesis. The patient himself should not attempt to make any corrections to his prostheses. Only the dentist can make corrections. The insertion and removal of the prostheses should be done with the help of fingers, without forcing the wires or sensitive holders, in the beginning of the mirror. Denture sticking cream or powders sold in pharmacies can help the patient use the prosthesis more comfortably by increasing the retention of the dentures.
Why to apply Cosmetic Denture?
Teeth are very important for human health. Loss of teeth, disfigurement, incurable bruising leads to various problems. Cosmetic Denture is a treatment made to restore lost functions of the patient and also to correct broken speech and improve aesthetic appearance. In this way, the oral health that is lost to a large extent is corrected; the patients who have to live with missing or rotten teeth are also supported psychologically. Patients, who are forced to live their lives without teeth, even for a short period of time, almost forget to laugh. In addition to functional disorders, this causes damage to the sense of self-confidence in humans. It is aimed to improve the quality of life with various prostheses made to these types of patients. Aesthetic prostheses are made to meet aesthetic expectations and to be liked by both the patient and the society.
The aesthetic of prosthetics raises the patient's morale and provides self-confidence. Functional dentures are made to ensure the presence of teeth and the patient's normal nutrition. In this case, the patient is fed healthy and balanced. Not eating healthy foods can cause some digestive problems. It can also be applied for phonetic reasons. The absence of teeth causes the absence of sounds so that a normal conversation cannot be made. Because teeth are an organ of the system that allows correct and understandable speech. Cosmetic dentures made for psychological reasons, a beautiful and compatible prosthesis with the patient's aesthetic and phonetic expectations will be met, the patient's self-confidence and makes it psychologically healthy. Psychological and aesthetic purpose forms a whole with each other. The patient without teeth cannot socialize with each other in society, cannot meet and mingle with people causes trauma.
What are the stages of fixed dentures?
At least 4 sessions may be required for treatment with fixed dentures.
Preparation and measurement: the tooth or teeth to be restored are reduced to the amount of restoration to be applied and the precise size of the whole mouth is taken for laboratory model and procedures. Color determination is taken by the decision of the dentist and the patient.
Infrastructure rehearsal: in the laboratory, the zirconium or metal infrastructure prepared on the model is rehearsed and harmonized in the mouth.
Porcelain rehearsal: this is the stage before the completion of its restoration. The harmony of porcelain prepared in the laboratory with adjacent, opposite teeth and surrounding tissues is checked. Color and aesthetic harmony with the patient's face and smile is looked at. Appropriate characterizations are made at this stage by giving information to the patient. Final approval of the patient is obtained. It is sent to the lab to be polished.
Lacquer and simantation: The restoration prepared in the laboratory is tried in the mouth for the last time and if the problem is not seen, it is fixed to the tooth after the patient's approval, and the residual residues are removed after the adhesive hardens. After this process, restorations are made available to the patient.
Cosmetic Denture Material
In Turkey, two types of teeth, plastic and porcelain (ceramic) are used as Cosmetic Denture. Porcelain teeth are more aesthetically pleasing and more resistant to abrasion than plastic teeth. However, in use, there are disadvantages such as making too much noise due to impact. The most important drawbacks of dentures where porcelain teeth are used are that they can break immediately when they fall on a hard floor and wear them out if they come into contact with natural teeth. For this reason, porcelain teeth are used more healthily in full dentures compared to segmented dentures.
Although different polymers such as Polymethylmethacrylate, urethandymethacrylate, polycarbonate, and polysulfide have been used in prosthetic treatments from past to present, Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) based acrylic resins are the most commonly used prosthetic material. Polymethylmethacrylate has many advantages such as being bio-compatible, easy to use, not expensive equipment used during construction and its dimensional stability is acceptable, as well as low water absorption, stable in oral environment and easy repair. Knowing the strengths and weaknesses of your prostheses can help you predict how long they will last. The life of prosthesis also depends on the habit of oral hygiene, so it is very important to clean the prosthesis every day. Most importantly, they need to be cared for to prevent bacteria that cause gingivitis pain and bleeding, and to keep your natural gums healthy enough to wear dentures.
Before Cosmetic Denture
Everyone has some concern at the dentist’s examination. However, increasing the size of the anxiety both prevents treatment and makes the patient unhappy. Anxiety towards the dentist is caused by financial concerns, fear of pain, thinking about the possibility of not achieving the desired outcome, and often from previous bad experiences. Some researchers have concluded that a person’s mood is important in the patient’s acceptance of Cosmetic Denture. There have always been dental prostheses in some way throughout human history because people have always lost their teeth and the need to complete them has been born.
Archaeological research has shown that dental prosthetics were used even in early prehistoric humans. Today, it is a frequently applied treatment for aesthetic purposes. Before Cosmetic Denture, you should have a detailed conversation with your dentist and make your wishes clear. At this stage the dentist will have some suggestions for you. As a result of the examinations, the most accurate treatment method will be determined for you and the process will begin this way. A successful treatment is possible with the correct diagnosis. The patient refers to the dentist with various complaints. At this stage, a variety of tests are required to determine the problem based on the patient’s complaints and to select the appropriate treatment method and materials.
After Cosmetic Denture
The patient should be informed beforehand about the risks and adversities that may occur after cosmetic denture. After cosmetic denture surgery, there are some details that the patient should pay attention not to experience the same problems again. Oral hygiene should be provided as usual. A toothbrush and toothpaste recommended by the dentist should be used. Cleaning of the prostheses placed in the mouth should be done in accordance with the features of the prosthesis. Dentist checks should not be neglected. A number of side effects may occur after cosmetic denture surgery. The patient should be advised to overcome this process easily.
What kind of anesthesia is applied in Cosmetic Denture procedure?
While performing Cosmetic Denture procedure, local anesthesia, general anesthesia or sedation method is generally used. The type of anesthesia is determined according to the current condition of the patient, the size of the operation to be performed, and the mouth structure of the patient. Local anesthesia is mostly used in operations. With the cooperation of general anesthesia or sedation anesthesiologists, it is applied in large operations where multiple procedures will be performed at once, in cases where the patient's mouth structure is problematic, in patients with psychological problems and in patients who are very afraid of this procedure. In order for general anesthesia to be applied, the health condition of the patient must be appropriate.
Cosmetic Denture Side Effects
Although there is an aesthetic procedure, there are some risks. The side effects of Cosmetic denture are mild pain, tingling, difficulty in speaking and chewing foods. These symptoms will soon pass. Mild pain is normal after the procedure. The dentist recommends a pain medication, which will reduce the pain. However, there are some points that the patient should take care of in solving this problem. Very hot, spicy, acidic foods and drinks that may irritate the area where the operation is performed should not be consumed. Applying force to the processing zone should be avoided. It can cause pain after physical interventions to the tooth during the procedure. The passing time of the whimper complaint may vary depending on the procedure applied and from person to person.
There are points to be considered to minimize the complaint of whining. Teeth should be brushed with a soft toothbrush and toothpaste used for sensitive teeth. Eating too cold and too hot foods should be avoided. As with all dental treatments, a fitting process is required for dentures. Or sores in the mouth can make the sewing process a bit difficult. During this period of adjustment, strokes may occur in the tissue, so regular doctor should be checked. It can be difficult to open and close the mouth after surgery. For all these reasons, patients cannot perform their chewing function without problems; therefore, dry and hard foods should not be consumed immediately, foods should be increased hardness as they get used to the prosthesis.
The fitting of the prosthesis with the tissues takes a certain time. The patient may not get used to the prosthesis placed in his mouth immediately. He may have difficulty opening and closing his mouth. Especially in moving dentures, the feeling of the prosthesis coming out of the mouth may occur. Cheek and tongue bites may occur in areas that remain empty for a certain period of time. Both the effects of surgery and the effect of not being used to prosthetics, the patient may experience difficulties in speaking and pronouncing the words correctly in the first days.
What should be considered when using Cosmetic Dentures?
After Cosmetic denture surgery, the patient should be informed about the possible side effects and should take precautions accordingly. In case of possible pain, the pain medication recommended by the dentist should be available. Hard and solid foods should be avoided as there may be difficulties in opening and closing the mouth and chewing functions after the operation. It is better to be fed with soft foods such as mash. Post-operative behavior that can lead to bleeding, such as sucking the operating area, shaking the mouth and spitting, should be avoided. To minimize swelling, cold application should be performed for the first 24 hours after surgery. Oral hygiene should be very careful. One day after surgery, teeth should be brushed and mouth cleaned with an antiseptic mouthwash. The maintenance and cleaning of the prosthetics should also be done regularly. During certain periods, dentures must be checked by the dentist.
Can I eat with Cosmetic Denture?
As you get used to your new dental prosthesis, you can start enjoying your favorite meals again in a short time with a little time and a little patience. Start with soft foods such as eggs, fish, cooked vegetables so you can eat comfortably with your dental prostheses. Try not to bite down using your front teeth; this action can dislodge your dental prostheses. By chewing evenly on both sides, you help your gums get used to a gentle pressure.
After you start to feel comfortable about how to eat with your dental prostheses, you can eat more difficult meals, for example, harder fruits and meats. By trying a dental prosthesis adhesive for more difficult meals, you may feel more comfortable keeping your dental prosthesis in place. In addition to providing stability for up to 12 hours, these dental adhesives help you feel more comfortable until you get used to this feeling by creating a seal that prevents food from entering between your teeth and gums.
Types of Cosmetic Dentures
Dental prostheses differ depending on many factors. The number of teeth to be applied to the prosthesis, the materials from which the prosthesis is made, aesthetics and comfort are some of them. Prostheses can be categorized as Cosmetic Denture, fixed dentures, removable dentures, and implant prostheses. Fixed prostheses are the treatments applied in one or more teeth loss, incurable caries and tooth fractures. It also known as veneer. It is fixed to the tooth and cannot be removed and worn by the patient. Cosmetic denture is easier to adapt and use than removable dentures. There are two different ways to do this. It is divided into metal supported and non-metal supported prostheses.
Metal supported prostheses give a matte appearance as the light transmittance is low. Metal-free prostheses are more suitable for patients who want a natural and aesthetic appearance. Its types are single crowns, bridges and fixed implants on implants. Single crowns are applied by cutting and shrinking a single tooth and sticking prosthesis on it. Bridges, on the other hand, are the application in which the adjacent teeth are cut and covered and supported. Implant fixed prostheses are prostheses placed on the implant. Zirconium is the closest prosthetic application that gives the aesthetic appearance to the natural tooth. Removable prostheses are the type of prosthesis applied in multiple tooth losses and removable by the patient. Movable prosthesis types are total dentures, partial dentures, and sensitive retaining dentures.
Total prostheses are prostheses that the patient can put on and take off in the form of an artificial palate and teeth in case of all tooth loss. Partial prostheses and sensitive retaining prostheses are prostheses made with the support of these teeth when there are natural teeth in the mouth. In partial dentures, the prosthesis is attached to the patient’s teeth with metal crochets.
Especially in front teeth, there may be aesthetic problems in terms of appearance. Sensitive retaining dentures are visually better than partial dentures. Neighboring teeth are covered with crowns and the holders are hidden inside the coatings. On the other hand, implant prostheses are advantageous in terms of not being applied to neighboring teeth and making support with bone.
To increase the retention of conventional dentures in edentulous people moving, implant treatment in Turkey began to be made often. Implants that fuse with the jawbone are attached to the slots inside the prostheses with special connections, thereby controlling the chewing and speech movements of the mobile prostheses and improving their functions. This type of prosthesis is called overdenture. Depending on the bone structure and inter-jaw relationship, overdentures can be applied on several implants. Connection spacers consist of specialized parts called ball, bar or locator. Overdentures are performed on natural teeth, natural tooth roots and implants, with or without preparation. They are also known as overlay or overdentures. They provide aesthetic function and funding in the best way.
Prostheses made on the Implant are several types. Toronto prosthesis is a common variety of prosthetics practiced by dentists. Implant prosthesis are fixed or removable dentures placed on the implant. Because removable dentures are more difficult to use, implant prostheses are preferred due to their easier use. Implant prostheses, which are adapted to the patient’s mouth structure and the problem they are experiencing, are made so that they can be removed by the patient. It can also be prepared so that it can be removed only by the dentist. Implant prostheses are used in patients with suitable bone structure. Compared to traditional bridges and prostheses, they are common alternatives with their natural tooth similarities. Toronto prosthesis is preferred by patients and dentists because it is easy to use and maintain implant prostheses. Being natural looking and having healthier chewing possibilities are always the first reason to choose.
Hybrid prostheses used in complete dental and partial dental deficiencies are the preferred dentures in many dental treatments. They are preferred in the following cases:
Treatment of bone and soft tissues of patients experiencing bone resorption problems
In toothless crests where excessive bone loss is experienced due to tumoral resection
Irregular alveolar bone resorption
Upper jaw in lip support
The distance between the jaws is taken into account for the use of hybrid prostheses. In addition, lip support, high laughter line on the upper jaw, lower jaw lip line formed while talking are other important aesthetic parameters. Hybrid prosthetics are prepared by placing pink acrylic and tool teeth on a metal infrastructure. Porcelain can also be used to minimize the effects of discoloration and abrasions and to make the aesthetic more permanent. In order to provide a more natural appearance, metal aesthetic gum color can be prepared with restorative material by making metal porcelain crowns on metal infrastructures formed in the form of cut teeth. Cemented hybrid prostheses can also be prepared according to the dentist’s preference or because the implant system used is not occlusal screwed.
It is a type of prosthesis commonly used in implant prostheses. Bar prostheses are preferred in implant positions that are not adjusted according to static principles. This condition is generally experienced due to bone deformities and defects. It has all the features of the locater and bar system. Since the cost of locater and bar is also added, its price may be slightly more expensive than other dentures.
Advantages of Overdentures
On the basis of overdentures, there is accurate diagnosis and planning. Well-applied overdentures by a specialist dentist significantly improve the patient’s quality of life. Here are the some Advantages of Overdentures:
Implants and overdentures strengthen bone tissue and prevent possible bone loss. Bone loss occurs in edentulous areas of the mouth.
In single tooth implants, a procedure is not applied on the anterior and posterior adjacent teeth.
It offers convenient treatment options that can be customized for the patient.
It is an excellent solution for edentulous patients.
Aesthetic concerns can be eliminated by treating smile aesthetic problems as well as loss of teeth in the front teeth.
It provides the shape and size of the teeth as desired and the design of the smile.
Overdentures made under the right conditions and the right static can be used for years without any problems.
Turkey Cosmetic Dentures

People who want to have aesthetic teeth and aesthetic smile prefer aesthetic dental treatments by combining a few branches of treatment in aesthetic dentistry in Turkey.

It can be applied in patients who have lost all their teeth, patients who have experienced single tooth loss, patients who have partial tooth loss, patients whose teeth have been deformed over time. Only the patients to be treated with this treatment should have adequate bone structure.
Fixed Cosmetic Dentures
A Fixed Cosmetic Denture is a type of prosthesis that can be removed by the dentist and cannot be removed by the patient on natural teeth, dental roots or dental implants made with various materials to restore the damaged and lost structure of the tooth with various materials in cases where the dental structure is excessively damaged or lost. It takes several sessions to make fixed dentures. After the intraoral examination, x-ray extraction and treatment decision making stages, the tooth to be treated is prepared by cutting and a measurement is taken from the patient. The prosthesis made according to the size taken is rehearsed in the patient’s mouth. If there is no problem, it will be sent to the varnish if no changes will be made to the prosthesis. The polished prosthesis is fixed on the patient’s tooth with the help of a special adhesive.
Movable Cosmetic Dentures
Movable Cosmetic Dentures are dentures that move within the mouth and can be inserted and removed by the patient. It is applied in cases of multiple tooth losses and in cases of all tooth containers. Because it is mobile, the patient may have difficulties in speaking and eating at the first time. It can cause bumps in the mouth. It is less comfortable than a fixed prosthesis. Movable dentures should be removed at night while lying down and kept in water or in special solution containers. Cleaning should be done by removing from the mouth. Dentures such as total dentures, partial dentures, and precision-retaining dentures are also in the types of movable dentures.

Turkey Cosmetic Denture Prices
Prices for Cosmetic Denture can be different in every country and clinic. Turkey Cosmetic Denture Prices vary depending on many factors. Whether the patient has general health insurance, the institution where the surgery will be performed, the surgeon who will perform the surgery, the city and even the district where the institution is located, the methods and materials that will be used in the surgery are some of these. Even if the patient has health insurance, the insurance companies will not pay for this procedure. All you have to do before deciding on treatment is to contact the insurance company. Depending on the reasons mentioned above, prices may vary.
In Cosmetic denture, as with any dental procedure, various complications may occur. After the procedure, you should follow the process and apply to the dentist before you reach the uncomfortable dimensions. The risk of complications can be reduced by following the advice of the dentist and by regular use of prescribed medications. Infection, pain, fever, bleeding and swelling are the most common complications in this type of procedure. After Cosmetic denture, you need to provide intra-oral hygiene. If you don't pay attention to this, the risk of infection may arise. In cases of bleeding after the procedure, the tampon should be sterile. After the procedure, the teeth should be brushed regularly with a soft brush that the doctor will recommend. To minimize the risk of infection, warm salt water or antiseptic mouthwashes should be used, depending on the advice of your doctor.
Grain foods should not be consumed on the first days as they can go to the procedure site and negatively affect recovery. You may feel some pain after the cosmetic denture procedure. In this regard, the patient is informed in advance. Even if there is no pain after the procedure, a painkiller with an anti-inflammatory effect can be used. The patient should not try to examine the location of the surgery by pulling the lip-cheek areas. This damages the procedure area and can cause pain. Eating excessively hot, acidic foods and drinks can also cause pain, as this will irritate the wound.
When deciding on the type of Cosmetic denture, a large number of elements are evaluated. The patient's complaints and expectations are important in making this decision. When choosing the type of prosthesis, the intra-oral condition of the patient is taken into consideration. In case of single tooth loss, multiple tooth loss and loss of all teeth, different types of dentures are applied. The bone structure of the patient's mouth, which is more prone to treatment, the condition and position of the teeth present in the mouth are also determining. Prostheses are made of various materials and their costs vary accordingly.
The patient's financial status should also be taken into consideration when making this decision. The patient's aesthetic concerns also play a decisive role here. Some dentures provide a more natural and aesthetic appearance due to their properties such as light permeability, so they may be the reason for preference. The durability, longevity and comfort of the dentures in the mouth are also important in making this decision.
After the effect of anesthesia after the procedure, you can start eating and drinking, but not everything can be consumed as before the procedure. First, avoid foods and beverages that may damage the processing zone. Grain foods such as rice, hard and solid foods that may be difficult to chew, acidic, spicy, extremely hot, extremely cold foods and drinks that may irritate the processing area should not be consumed. Since it takes time for the prosthesis to fit with the tissues in the mouth, it is difficult for the patient to be able to eat everything at once with their natural teeth.
Especially in moving dentures, the patient may have difficulty getting used to the chewing function with the prosthesis and may feel like the prosthesis will come out of his mouth. However, as the prosthesis is used, the variety and hardness of the foods consumed can be increased over time and the consumption habits can be restored to normal.
