Afford A Smile offers Same Day Dentures

Use of Dentures

A denture is a removable dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile.

There are two types of dentures – complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. A Partial denture not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from shifting.

Afford A Smile is unique because we can deliver your completed denture and/or partial denture in the same day. This a procedure that normally can take up to weeks and include a series of dental visits if visiting another dentist.

Our dentists and lab technicians have years of experience and pride ourselves in providing high quality and specialy fitted dentures. Being a smaller clinic we can take our time with each patient and provide extra time in ensuring a great fitting denture and happy patient.

We offer two denture options:

Economy denture: A high quality denture with an affordable denture option for any income level.

Premium denture: While still extremely affordable, offers one year full warranty and offers a selection of tooth shades to get the best match possible.

Reasons for dentures:

  • Complete Denture – Loss of all teeth in an arch.
  • Partial Denture – Loss of several teeth in an arch.
  • Enhancing smile and facial tissues.
  • Improving chewing, speech, and digestion.

What does getting dentures involve?

Highly accurate impressions (molds) and measurements are taken and used to create your custom denture. Dentures are very durable appliances and will last many years, but may have to be remade, repaired, or readjusted due to normal wear.

It is normal to experience increased saliva flow, some soreness, and possible speech and chewing difficulty, however this will subside as your muscles and tissues get used to the new dentures.

You will be given care instructions for your new dentures. Proper cleaning of your new dental appliance, good oral hygiene, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new dentures.
