Should I Get Porcelain or Acrylic Dentures?

Porcelain and acrylic false teeth are similar in price and have different pros and cons:

– Acrylic dentures are quieter when chewing, look slightly more natural than porcelain dentures, and are more suitable for those with bone loss; however, they will wear out more quickly.

– Acrylic dentures will need soaking overnight to remove bacteria; porcelain dentures are more delicate and need careful handling during cleaning to avoid chips.

– Your dentist will be happy to discuss which option is best for you.

Selection of the most appropriate material for your needs involves careful consideration of wear, durability and maintenance.
