A partial denture looks like natural teeth and gums. An artificial teeth is affixed to a plastic base and is shaded to match the natural gum color. The fixture can have either a metal or acrylic framework.

This is a common option when one or more natural teeth remain in the area for support. Compared to full dentures, partial can be placed around teeth that are still in place.
