Top-Rated Dentures in Santa Clara

Crestpointe Dental provides a wide range of tooth restoration and replacement options, including dentures. Complete and partial dentures can help restore your ability to eat an speak naturally with multiple or all misisng teeth.

Dentures can be made from a wide range of materials, with most dentures today being made of acrylic. This material can provide the necessary strength and durability for your dentures to last for a long time. However, dentures wear out over time and will need to be replaced eventually.

Regular dental checkups are important for patients with dentures. Dr. Cresencia Tejero-Ugay can determine whether your dentures are causing issues or need replacement or relining to ensure proper jaw alignment.

Crestpointe Dental can help you with affordable dentures that are custom-made for your individual needs. We can determine whether complete or partial dentures are right for your situation and provide a range of other tooth restoration and replacement options.

We also provide immediate dentures that provide a temporary solution following tooth extractions. These can provide the appearance of a full smile while you’re waiting for new permanent dentures or a replacement.

Removable Dentures vs. Dental Implants

Removable dentures are a widely used solution for individuals with missing teeth. They are affordable, with the cost of dentures being lower than many other treatment options. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re the right choice for you.

Dental implants provide an alternative treatment option for individuals with missing teeth. They are suitable for patients missing one, multiple, or all of their teeth. The process involves the surgical implantation of titanium posts that serve as a foundation for replacement teeth.

The posts can be used as the base for dental crowns, bridges, or All-on-Four complete replacements. They provide an incredibly strong foundation that can prevent many common issues with removable dentures. They can also provide a more natural eating and speaking experience and prevent long-term oral health issues.

All-on-Four dental implants are a full mouth replacement that is very similar to having permanent dentures. You’ll have a full mouth of replacement teeth without needing to remove them or dealing with painful slippage.

Neither dental implants nor dentures are right for everyone. Many factors can make dental implants unsuitable for individual patients, including jawbone size and preexisting conditions. The fact that dental implants require surgery is another factor in the decision.
