Complete Your Smile With Dentures
Are you looking for an affordable way to replace missing teeth? Dentures look just like your natural teeth and will help you eat and speak easily again. We know what an inconvenience an incomplete smile can be, so we offer multiple types of dentures. Learn about each one and how they can benefit you.
Traditional Partial and Full Dentures
Both full and partial dentures consist of acrylic bases and porcelain crowns. They’re custom made to fit comfortably over your gums to allow maximum functionality. They’re firmly attached using a strong dental adhesive and can be removed for cleaning.
If you’re looking for an affordable and fast way to achieve a new smile, this restoration may be perfect for you. Full dentures will replace full arches of teeth. Partial dentures are attached to your existing teeth with hooks or clasps to replace multiple teeth at once.
Dr. Crupi can also provide you with a denture solution that’s attached directly to your jawbone, providing even more stability than traditional dentures. Implant-supported dentures use multiple dental implants to attach a full denture to your jaw. While your implants are permanent, the denture attached to it can be removed if necessary.
Are You a Candidate for Dentures?
Do you want to eliminate your missing teeth and replace them with a full set of teeth you can be proud of? Dentures are great for people who want their smile to be full and beautiful. You’re a candidate for these restorations if you want to smile freely in social situations and have the self-confidence to meet new people.
Dentures will also benefit your oral health because they’ll protect your gums from bacteria and disease. Since teeth are an essential part of forming words, dentures are great for people who want to improve their speech.
Maintaining and Repairing Your Dentures
To ensure dentures last for many years, it’s crucial that you care for them regularly. To clean your dentures you’ll need:
- Water — to rinse them off before you clean them
- Special denture solution — to soak them in overnight
- Toothbrush– to brush them with daily
While cleaning your restorations after each meal is ideal, Dr. Crupi recommends doing so at least once a day. Brushing and soaking your dentures will remove bacteria and make sure your gums stay healthy.
If your dentures break, call us as soon as possible at one of our dental offices. Dr. Crupi will examine your restoration and send them to a lab to be repaired.
While dentures are a good way to replace missing teeth, some people prefer a more stable and permanent solution. If you want to replace your damaged or ill-fitting dentures, we suggest you schedule a consultation with Dr. Crupi. He’ll evaluate your mouth and determine if one of our dental implant solutions will work for you.
Full arch and All-On-4 dental implants look just like your natural teeth and will allow you to eat whatever you please without fearing that your dentures may become loose or break. You can also select our implant-supported denture if you want a hybrid option.

How do I take care of my veneers?
Since your porcelain veneer is attached securely to your tooth, you’ll care for it the same way you would with your natural teeth. However, make sure to use a non-abrasive toothpaste to brush them so they don’t get scratched.
To remove stains from your dentures, talk to Dr. Crupi about having them professionally whitened in our office.
