Your process for getting dentures will depend on a few factors, including the extent of your tooth loss and whether you require any preparatory treatment prior to receiving dentures. For example, some individuals must get one or more teeth extracted before they can get dentures.

After your mouth is ready to support dentures, our team will take impressions of your mouth and carefully design your prosthetic teeth. We will pay great attention to detail so that their size, shape, and color complement your natural facial characteristics. After a dental laboratory creates your dentures, we will coach you on how to use them to your greatest advantage.

The cost of your denture will depend on which type of denture you receive. Implant-supported dentures cost more than their traditional counterparts, but they last much longer. A full denture logically costs more than a partial denture. The materials used to fabricate the denture also play a role in the final cost. Our team will be sure to give you a frank estimate for the price of your prosthesis. We will also help you file insurance claims and explore financing options if necessary.
