Denture Solutions For You

While teeth often serve for a lifetime, dental disease or traumatic injury may result in tooth loss.  Many options are available for tooth replacement, including dentures. While full dentures replace a complete set of missing teeth, a partial denture fills gaps in your smile between your remaining teeth.

Regardless of your situation, Mountain View Family Dental offers unique resources for all denture concerns. Our staff includes a dedicated denturist, trained and licensed in the art of denture design and fabrication. Your case receives the talented eye of a professional that focuses exclusively on denture solutions for every scenario.

Full Dentures (conventional and implant-supported)

Sometimes tooth decay or gum disease reaches an unmanageable level. The decision to remove your remaining teeth on one or both jaws might be the best solution. Full dentures provide an economical, efficient way to restore your chewing and appearance.

A thin acrylic base that rests on the gum tissue and is the same color as your gums comprises the base of a full denture. Porcelain or acrylic teeth bonded into the base give the appearance of natural teeth emerging from the gums. Your smile is unique, and our providers apply years of experience to help you select teeth that appear natural and harmonious in your face. We customize the way you look, whether you want a "new" smile or just want to replicate the one you had.

While dentures solve problems on their own, modern technology presents better ways to enhance their fit and look. In many cases, dentures secure firmly to your jaw with the use of dental implants placed under them.  The design of this connection allows for either permanent fixation of the denture or a removable appliance.

In addition to exhibiting stronger retention and a more natural appearance, implant-supported dentures usually last longer. Dr. Guffey and Dr. Temp can discuss these options and help you understand the ways your lifestyle can be improved with implants. We’re glad to offer the expertise and experience to plan, place, and restore implants right in the comfort of our Mesa office.

Partial Dentures

Whether you've lost one tooth or several, chewing and smiling grow more difficult when large gaps exist between your teeth. Partial dentures present an economical solution to replace the missing teeth and fill in unsightly spaces. Improved chewing ability and restored smiling confidence are just two of the benefits resulting from a well-made partial denture. Additionally, this appliance helps keep your natural teeth from moving, which lowers the risk of losing those teeth in the future.

Most partial dentures include a thin metal framework designed to closely sit against your gums, allowing a smooth, streamlined feel. Natural teeth support the framework and provide a secure, easy-to-use appliance. Natural-appearing replacement teeth attach to the frame, and gum-colored acrylic helps the appliance blend esthetically with your gums. Since your mouth and needs are unique, our denturist and doctors work hard to create a solution that is comfortable and esthetic.

With technology advancements, implants can also support removable partial dentures, improving the fit while reducing the size of the appliance. Dentures present a few unique challenges, especially if you’re unfamiliar with them. We’ll minimize the initial frustrations to the lowest level possible.

At Mountain View Family Dental, we’ll discuss your options to make your mouth whole again. Soon you’ll enjoy a confident, complete smile.
