Artificial Teeth

Definition : Dental prostheses designed to replace missing natural teeth. These devices resemble natural teeth in shape, color, and functional capabilities; artificial teeth are typically made of ceramic, polymers, or resins. These prostheses are usually available as sets of teeth of a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors that replace the different types of teeth (e.g., canine, premolars, molars) for either the lower or upper arch. A single tooth may be replaced, or artificial teeth may be mounted in preformed dental plates to make new removable dentures or to repair existing dentures; artificial teeth that are included as an integral part of a fixed dental prosthesis are usually known as pontics.
