Dentures Near You
Although most patients are hesitant towards dentures at first, partial or complete dentures may be a great fit for certain patients that have some missing teeth and want to restore their smile. Bridges and implants can feel seamless and are probably preferred by most patients; however, a well-fitting denture that has good retention and lip support can feel very comfortable and can allow a patient to chew and smile confidently again.
At Acreview Dental, we make a variety of dentures. We offer complete acrylic dentures, partials (both acrylic and cast metal), as well as implant supported dentures. Dentures can sit on implants in a couple different ways depending on how many and where the implants are placed in the mouth. Generally, the more implants that we use, the more stable the denture.
If you are missing teeth and want a straightforward way to fix your bite or smile, we recommend chatting with our dentists about your options to replace them. We offer exams and consults to walk you through the process. Reach out today!

Dentures are a special type of prosthetic that is used to replace missing teeth. Just like crowns and bridges, they are specially customized to fit the dimensions of a patient’s mouth. Acrylic is used to create the gum base, while porcelain or resin is used to fashion the artificial teeth.
Two of the main types of dentures available include:
- Full – These are used to replace all of a patient’s teeth (in their upper and lower jaw)
- Partial – Used to replace a few teeth. This structure is similar to a dental bridge, as it incorporates a metal framework to remain in place in the mouth.
Not everyone is a suitable candidate for dentures. You’ll need to schedule a visit with a dentist near you and have your smile evaluated before you can go ahead and have any work done. Be sure to ask questions and voice any concerns you have so you feel comfortable throughout the process. If you satisfy any of the following requirements, you may be advised to get dentures:
- Missing teeth
- Problems eating (biting, chewing)
- Issues speaking/ pronouncing words
- Gum disease
- Loose teeth
- You’ve experienced oral trauma
