What are dentures?
Dentures are an affordable, removable option when it comes to tooth replacement. Prosthetic teeth attached to a gum-colored or pink base, dentures are custom dental appliances and come in many forms. Our qualified dentists, Dr. Rabee McDonald & Dr. Christo Mallakis, offers both full and partial dentures to meet all of your dental needs. Full dentures are used to replace a full arch of missing teeth; partial dentures are used when there are still natural teeth remaining in your smile. Both full and partial dentures are used to:
- Restore your ability to properly chew and speak
- Improve facial volume and shape
- Boost your confidence with a beautiful smile

How are dentures made?
Dentures are made over a number of weeks as we try your temporary denture while your gums are allowed to heal. At Lifetime Smiles, your oral health is our first priority, and hastily providing dentures can often do more harm than good. If your gums have not healed properly, wearing dentures can damage your gum tissues and even lead to bone loss. In this interim period, we will cast multiple temporary dentures for you to try. Once your gums have healed completely, you will be able to wear your completed dentures. Your dentures will be made to produce a natural, confident smile.
