Dentures

Patients of all ages can restore their confidence and quality of life with custom-fit dentures. These prostheses are composed of a gum-colored base and porcelain or plastic artificial teeth.

Full dentures replace all of the teeth on the upper and lower arches, or both. Partial dentures nestle in the spaces between the natural teeth that remain in the mouth. We design beautiful modern dentures that look extremely believable.

What are Dentures?

A denture is an appliance that is inserted into the mouth to replace natural teeth. It also supports the cheeks and lips for a more youthful appearance.

Full dentures are supported by the roof of the mouth and gums, whereas partial dentures are supported by the surrounding teeth. Alternatively, dentures can be secured with several dental implants.

What Options do I Have?

Regardless of which option you choose, we design all of our dentures with beautiful, durable materials that look natural.

Conventional denture | Are designed after all the teeth have been lost or extracted, and the gum tissues have had adequate time to heal.

Immediate denture | Are fabricated and placed immediately after tooth extraction. You will return for a few adjustments as the gums heal.

Upper denture | Consists of an acrylic flesh-colored base that covers the roof of the mouth.

Lower denture | Is shaped like a horseshoe, fastening into the mouth while leaving room for the tongue.

Partial denture | Utilizes metal clasps to hold onto the healthy teeth in the mouth.

Implant-supported denture | Uses dental implants which fuse with the jawbone and hold the denture in place.
