Full and Partial Dentures Seattle, WA
Patients who are missing several or all of their natural teeth can have them restored with a customized partial or full denture prosthetic device. Missing teeth can be a frustrating and potentially disastrous problem. At Crown Hill Smiles, we can examine your dentin and your bite, and make recommendations based on your needs. Drs. Walker and O'Connor can help improve your function, your appearance, and frequently, your speech with the production of a full or partial denture.
When are Partial Dentures needed?
