Dentures are used to replace as few as a single tooth all the way to a full set of teeth. They can be made out of only acrylic, or they can have a metal framework (cobalt chrome). Dentures are the most cost-effective way to replace multiple teeth but they are also the hardest to get used to. Much like a new pair of leather shoes, your gums will need time to get used to the hard plastic rubbing against it. Everyone is a bit different, but generally it can take up to 6 months for a new set of dentures to become completely comfortable.
