At the Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, our realistic looking dentures serve both a functional as well as an aesthetic purpose. For patients who are happy with their dentures but would like more stability we offer dental implants to help support their existing denture.

Cosmetic and Permanent Denture Options

Each and every prosthesis is hand designed to get you your smile back. Your denture will provide you with a great, comfortable fit that you can depend on all day long.

Types of Dentures We Offer

Center for Cosmetic Dentistry has several types of dentures for you to choose from depending on your needs:

Full Removable Dentures

Traditional dentures are an affordable way to replace all of your teeth at one time. They feature custom designed teeth supported by an acrylic plate that rests over the top of your jaw. It is held in place by creating suction against your soft tissues.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures allow you to maximize the health of your existing teeth without requiring extractions. The partial denture clasps into place around your natural teeth, replacing only the ones that are missing. Partial dentures can also be retained by dental implants to avoid placing stress on natural teeth.

Implant Supported Removable Dentures

These are dentures which are supported by dental implants. The benefit of this is increased stability resulting in better chewing. When used for partial dentures it removes the need to put stress on existing teeth resulting in a more comfortable restoration. This also helps preserve the remaining teeth. When used with a full denture it provides for increased retention and stability. Two implants will help preserve the remaining bone which is important for long-term quality of life. This is especially true for a full lower denture which many patients have difficulty in wearing.

All-on-4 Implant Dentures

They free up additional space as they are anchored directly onto implants. When 4 or more implants are used they can support a full set of teeth. Our patients enjoy them because All-on-4 dentures are typically easier to speak and eat with.
