Types of Dentures We Offer
Dentures are used to replace missing teeth and restore the function and appearance of the mouth. They are typically made of acrylic resin, porcelain, or a combination of materials and are custom-made to fit the shape and match the color of the patient’s natural teeth. Dentures are designed to fit snugly against the gums and can be secured in place with dental adhesives or by attaching them to implants or your existing teeth.
Fixed dentures are permanently attached to dental implants or natural teeth. Unlike removable dentures, they are designed to stay in place at all times. Fixed dentures can be used to replace one or more missing teeth and are commonly used when a patient is missing multiple teeth in a row. The two common types of fixed dentures are implant-supported dentures and dental bridges.

Snap-in dentures, also called “overdentures”, consist of a removable denture that is attached to a metal framework, which in turn “snaps” onto dental implants or existing teeth. These are an attractive option for patients who are looking for a more stable and secure alternative to traditional dentures. They can also help preserve the underlying bone in the jaw, which can deteriorate over time when teeth are missing.

Temporary dentures, such as “immediate” or “economy”, are used as a short-term solution while a patient’s permanent dentures are being made. They are typically made of a soft or malleable material that can be easily adjusted and molded to fit the patient’s mouth. Temporary dentures are used when a patient has had one or more teeth extracted or when the patient is undergoing a dental implant procedure.

Cost of Dentures
Insurance & Dentures
Most insurance plans have coverage for part or all of the cost of dentures, but typically have specifications on the type(s) of denture they cover.
During your initial consultation, our financial coordinator will review your dental insurance to see if Invisalign aligners are covered under your benefits and give you a complete financial plan. We also offer in-office insurance or financing to help with costs.
Common Questions & Answers
Are dentures painful?
With proper care and regular checkups, dentures can be a comfortable and functional solution for replacing missing teeth. If you experience significant pain or discomfort while wearing your dentures, it’s important to contact your dentist right away.
Do dentures feel like real teeth?
Fixed dentures generally feel more natural since they are anchored onto dental implants or existing teeth, making eating and talking easier. Removable dentures may feel less stable or secure. A consultation with Dr. Zavari will help you determine if and what type(s) of denture is the right option for you.
What materials do you use?
Are dentures safe?
However, like any medical or dental procedure, there are some risks and potential complications associated with them. Some of the potential risks and complications of dentures include: irritation or soreness in the gums or other soft tissues of the mouth, infection due to poor dental hygiene or a buildup of bacteria, and difficulty with speech or eating.
To minimize the risk of complications, it’s important to maintain good oral hygiene, schedule regular dental checkups, and follow the care instructions provided by your dentist. If you experience any discomfort, soreness, or other issues with your dentures, be sure to contact your dentist as soon as possible.
