Q.

partial dentures

good day

I have asked the Prosthodontist but unfortunately he has not responded.

I' m due for partials for top teeth. I' m missing all teeth from both my eye teeth back. only have front top teeth.
my dentist said the only partials I can get are with visible metal clasps. pls tell me that is not my only option as they would be completely visible when I talk etc.
are there really no partials with white clasps??

pls help

The claps can be made with a white material. Not all labs do this as they are not as robust as metal ones.
