Dentures can Restore Your Smile
Are loose and missing teeth affecting your health and lifestyle? Adult tooth loss is common, impacting as many as one in three Americans over age 45. For local dental patients, custom-crafted dentures by The Smile Center in Virginia Beach, VA, can provide an optimal solution to extensive tooth loss.
Whether you need to replace an upper or lower arch or a complete set of teeth, we can restore your smile and help you enjoy life to the fullest again. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Scott Parr or Dr. Tara Frey, please contact our practice today.
Maintaining a complete set of reliable teeth is clearly important to your health and emotional well-being. Missing teeth affect your appearance and dietary choices, and can also hinder your ability to enunciate words clearly. If you are struggling with loose and missing teeth or a failing denture appliance, new custom dentures can make a marked difference in your quality of life.
Customized to the individual needs of every patient, new dentures look and feel more natural than ever before. Durable and stain resistant, they are designed to fit and flatter your anatomy and skin tone. These prosthetic teeth restore structure to the jaw line, filling in sunken areas to create more youthful contour.
While partial dentures (dental bridges) are designed to replace just a few teeth, full dentures can replace a row or complete set of teeth. At The Smile Center, we provide both traditional and implant-supported dentures. The right choice for you depends upon many factors, including your age, oral health status, and budget. If you have a current denture appliance that is broken or failing, we offer repair services or can alter the dentures to fit dental implants.
A traditional denture appliance includes a flesh-colored acrylic base, which fits over your gums, and artificial teeth. Using the latest digital technologies, Dr. Parr and Dr. Frey create durable, custom dentures to precisely fit the contours of your mouth. When their design is complete, the computerized blueprint is delivered to our partner lab for fabrication, and your new dentures are ready in five to seven days.
Dr. Parr and Dr. Frey can perform any needed extractions, providing relaxation techniques and anesthetic options to keep you comfortable for the procedure. Depending on the individual case, you may receive an immediate full denture placement at that point, or may return for fitting after your gums are healed. If your teeth are placed immediately, you will return for a fit adjustment in a few months. Because the gums naturally change shape over time, periodic adjustments to these dentures are necessary.
Implant dentures are an ideal teeth replacement method for many patients, providing optimal strength and stability. These dentures attach to titanium implants placed in the jaw bone, which act as artificial roots for your new teeth. Halting the jaw bone loss that occurs with tooth loss, implant dentures are a permanent solution, eliminating the necessity of ongoing fit adjustments.
Dr. Parr places and restores dental implants in coordination with Dr. Frey at The Smile Center. In addition, they offer the cost-effective option of converting your traditional dentures into an implant-supported appliance.
