The secret to great dentures
While it is very important that dentures look natural and beautiful, it is also important that they work well when you chew. So ensuring you have a proper bite is at the top of our list.
We make natural looking dentures that are precision-fit for your mouth and designed to give you the healthiest bite possible. Our advanced techniques of fabricating your new dentures will allow you to speak, eat and smile with confidence.
We use computer scans to make sure your denture work, including your bite, is correct. This assures not only your comfort but also the longevity and functionality of your dentures. The computer scans are quick and painless and enable our dentists to correctly evaluate your bite.
Offering comfortable, natural-looking dentures
The primary cause of the majority of problems with dentures is a bad fit. Creating a perfect fit is a combination of science and art. Our dentists are very experienced in making and placing well-fitting dentures that look like real teeth. We will perform a comprehensive oral exam and discuss with you the various denture options that will meet your expectations.
We will make sure your dentures fit precisely to your mouth and are pain-free and comfortable. We offer custom shading, fitting, shaping and alignment for a totally natural look. And with our no-metal dentures, no one will be able to know you’re actually wearing dentures!
Get a fast turnaround
Because we use our own private local lab that provides optimum-quality work and a fast turnaround, your dentures and denture repairs can be completed correctly the first time and with very little wait time.
No metal partials
Instead of metal clasps, we use no-metal partials made by using extremely strong plastic clasps. Our no-metal partials are ideal for the majority of denture wearers. People who clench or grind their teeth or who have a heavier bite are the only exceptions.Back to the top
You shouldn’t have to wait until your new dentures come back from the lab to have teeth. We will fit you with comfortable, attractive temporary dentures until your mouth has healed. This way, after the extraction procedure you’ll go home with temporary dentures to use until your new permanent dentures are created.Back to the top
To help prevent slippage, soreness, pain and chewing problems we can also use other denture solutions, such as implant-supported dentures.
Mini Dental Implants are an effective, affordable and efficient alternative to traditional dental implants which can be placed in one visit and require no healing, allowing for your dentures to be placed immediately.
Who is a Good Candidate for Dentures?
When you suffer significant tooth loss, such as several teeth in a row or all of the teeth on your upper and/or lower jaw, it can have a serious impact on your health, your appearance, and your self-esteem. Luckily, there are a few good options for restoration, including partial or complete dentures.
How do you know if you’re a good candidate for dentures? For starters, you’ll have to be in good oral health to receive dentures. If tooth loss is related to tooth decay or gum disease, you’ll have to address these issues prior to being fitted for dentures, especially if you’ve chosen implant supported dentures.
Dentures are an affordable alternative to some other restorations for patients working on a budget. This permanent solution helps to restore your oral function and your appearance, so that you can eat, drink, smile, and laugh with confidence.
Caring for Dentures
If you chose removable dentures, you can easily care for them. After eating, you should remove and rinse dentures to eliminate leftover food particles and bacteria. Dentures should be brushed at least once each day, although ideally, you should brush them after eating, and you can soak them overnight to ensure that they don’t dry out.
Make sure to rinse them after soaking before putting them back in your mouth. If your dentures have metal attachments, as with implant supported dentures, you may need specialized cleaning solutions to prevent tarnishing of metal parts. When you remove dentures, clean your mouth thoroughly.
