About Dentures

A denture is a dental prosthetic that replaces missing teeth. In most cases, whether you choose a full denture or partial denture, you will receive a device that includes a high-grade acrylic base colored to blend with your natural gum tissue. Within the base will rest beautiful porcelain or acrylic teeth to replace those you are currently missing. Dentures are removable, which means you will remove and clean them on a daily basis. We will take impressions of your top and bottom arches, which will act as the dimensions from which we will craft customized dentures.

Are You Missing A Full Arch?

Have you experienced complete tooth loss on one arch or both arches? If so, you make a good candidate for full dentures. The full prosthetic will rest over your dental ridge. This single device will instantly rejuvenate your smile, allowing you to display a complete smile. The denture will rely solely on suction created naturally in your mouth.

Are You Missing One Or Multiple Teeth?

You will make a better candidate for a partial denture, which can be crafted to accommodate nearly any configuration of missing teeth. Are you missing one tooth? Multiple teeth in a row? Teeth spread out from one another? No problem. The partial makes use of metal clasps that fit over existing natural teeth for support.
