Dentures Q & A

What kinds of dentures are offered?

Wesmark Family Dentistry's expertly trained cosmetic dentists and licensed denturists offer an array of complementary treatment plans for patients of all ages. From the first consultation to finished dentures, or denture relining and repairs, this skilled team utilizes the highest quality materials to deliver the best overall experience. You have multiple dental options to choose from, including:

  • Metal framework partial dentures
  • Acrylic partial dentures
  • Dental implants and crowns
  • Denture relines
  • Soft denture liners
  • Implant-supported dentures

Licensed denturists construct all dentures in an on-site dental lab at Wesmark Family Dentistry. To create the dentures that fit you perfectly and look natural, they use intuitive and user-friendly design software called InLab by Dentsply Sirona.

You can see your dentures throughout the process, which is a significant advantage. Your denturist can make adjustments and changes along the way to ensure the ideal fit and most aesthetically pleasing finished product.

Am I a good candidate for immediate dentures?

You might be a prime candidate for immediate dentures if you've lost your teeth as a result of illness, injury, or decay, and need full dentures. Immediate dentures offer you the benefit and convenience of never having to be without teeth. Be aware, though, that as your mouth heals from the loss of your natural teeth and immediate denture inserts, your dentures require relining to ensure the most comfortable and accurate fit over time.

Are partial dentures a better choice for me?

The most common type of partial dentures has a metal framework. Unlike full dentures, which replace all of your natural teeth, partial dentures only replace missing teeth. The metal framework provides strong support and helps with chewing when you are missing back teeth. Partial dentures with metal frames connect to existing teeth, keeping them in place and you feeling secure—all without dental adhesives.

Acrylic partial dentures are less expensive than metal ones but don’t last as long. Acrylic partials are usually a short-term solution that's worn while the dentist makes permanent bridges or partials.

Where do I go for denture repairs?

At Wesmark Family Dentistry, our licensed denturists can repair custom dentures in a matter of hours, sometimes while you wait, depending on the type of repair needed. They repair your custom dentures or an existing set of dentures on-site.
