With our custom, natural-looking dentures in Cedar Park, TX, we have helped countless patients feel great about their smiles again.

Dentures are restorative dental treatments that replace missing teeth, restore function, and renew the smile’s appearance. Depending on our patients’ needs, we can provide full and partial dentures.

The Benefits of Dentures

Restoring missing teeth with restorations like dentures can prevent missing teeth problems. High-quality dentures offer many benefits to patients, including:

  • Increased Self-Esteem: Losing your permanent teeth, especially teeth in the front of your mouth, can cause embarrassment during social situations. After you get your restoration, you can smile with confidence. 
  • Improved Ability to Eat and Speak: Missing tooth gaps make it difficult to eat and speak. Once you are used to your new dentures, you can pronounce words more clearly, especially “ch” and “th” sounds. You can also eat more of the foods you love.
  • Support to the Facial Muscles: When you lose your natural teeth, you also lose facial definition. Without the support of natural teeth, the facial muscles can weaken. As a result, you can experience facial sagging. Replacing missing teeth with dentures can treat a “sunken-in” appearance. 
  • Simple Removal and Cleaning: Dentures offer easy cleaning. You can clean removable dentures with a toothbrush, water, and soap. If you get an implant denture, you can brush and floss your restoration like natural teeth.

Dentures in Cedar Park, TX

The type of denture you choose will depend on your unique oral health needs and cosmetic goals. Partial dentures are a great option if you have one or more gaps in your smile and want a removable restoration that will rest on top of your gums.

Full dentures replace full arches of teeth, using a special denture adhesive to stay in place. Implant-supported dentures combine the benefits of dentures and dental implants. These dentures can restore many teeth simultaneously, but they are permanent and incredibly stable.

No matter the type of denture, we customize dentures to your mouth’s measurements and desired tooth shade.

How to Care for Dentures

Because there are different types of dentures, they will require different care:

Traditional Dentures

Taking care of traditional dentures will help them look brand new and last many years. First, clean your dentures with a mild soap or cleaner and a soft-bristle toothbrush. Then, soak your dentures overnight to ensure they stay moist and clean.

Dentures should always be rinsed off after you take them out of the solution. However, never soak them in hot water, as it can warp the custom shape. You can always use denture whitening products to enhance their appearance if they look dull.

Implant Dentures

Because implants secure dentures at the root, they are fixed in place. You can care for implant-supported dentures just like your natural teeth. First, floss between your teeth. Then, brush with a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste.

You can use a water flosser or interdental floss to remove food debris and bacterial buildup from your dentures.

How Much Do Dentures Cost?

The cost of denture treatment depends on multiple factors:

  • Denture type
  • Number of missing teeth
  • Pretreatments

Dental insurance typically covers restorative dentistry services, including dentures. Our office also accepts CareCredit, which offers payment plans to keep treatment within your budget.
