Partial Dentures in Knoxville, TN
Two types of partial dentures are available - cast metal and acrylic.
Cast Metal Partial Denture
The cast metal partial denture is the best partial denture. It is stronger, less bulky, and offers the best fit. The cast metal partial is fabricated using a metal framework to which the on-site laboratory will attach higher-grade denture teeth. This partial denture requires two to three weeks to deliver since our special metal framework is made by an outside laboratory.
Acrylic Partial DentureAcrylic partial dentures are more affordable, but they tend to feel more bulky. The partial denture has an acrylic base upon which the teeth are set and is attached to natural teeth with small metal clasps. The practice staff will show you which teeth are available to place on the denture.
The acrylic partial denture is often available the same day.
