Benefits of Dentures

  • Dentures replace missing teeth, restoring your ability to chew, speak, and smile with confidence.
  • Dentures are customized to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth, enhancing your overall facial appearance.
  • Dentures enable you to eat a wider variety of foods and speak more clearly, improving your overall quality of life.
  • Missing teeth can lead to facial sagging and an aged appearance. Dentures support facial contours, providing a more youthful look.
  • Full and partial dentures are removable, allowing for easy cleaning and maintenance.




Full and partial dentures are invaluable solutions for individuals dealing with tooth loss, and at Light Dental Studios, we take pride in offering these custom-crafted restorations to help our patients regain their smiles and confidence.

Our commitment to providing high-quality dental care extends to our in-house denture lab, where our skilled technicians work closely with our dental professionals to create dentures that are as functional as they are aesthetically pleasing.



Dental needs as we age

  • As we age, our dental history is culmination of a lifetime of appointments.
  • Neglect and Gum Disease is more evident the older we get.
  • Majority of patients 55 and older have missing teeth as a result.
  • As a result, approx. 55% of adults 65 years and older wear some removable denture.
  • 28% of adults 65 years and older are completely edentulous (toothless)
Utilizing the latest technology, our in-house denture lab at our dental office ensures the highest quality dentures with the best fit.

By processing all the work in our office, we drastically reduce the time it takes to make your custom fitting dentures.





Types of dentures


Full Dentures

Full dentures, also known as complete dentures, are designed to replace all the teeth in an upper or lower arch. They consist of a gum-colored acrylic base that rests on the gums and supports a set of prosthetic teeth.

Our custom full dentures are meticulously crafted to fit your mouth comfortably and securely. We understand that the fit of your dentures is crucial to your comfort and ability to eat, speak, and smile confidently, so we take great care in ensuring that they provide an optimal fit and function.


Partial Dentures

Partial dentures, on the other hand, are used when a patient has some remaining natural teeth. These dentures consist of replacement teeth attached to a framework that clasps onto the remaining teeth, anchoring the partial denture in place. Our partial dentures are designed with precision and attention to detail, allowing them to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, both in terms of appearance and function.

One of the unique advantages of our in-house denture lab is the ability to streamline the denture creation process. This means faster turnaround times for our patients, minimizing the waiting period between impressions and the final fitting of your dentures. It also allows us to make adjustments and refinements promptly, ensuring that your dentures fit comfortably and securely.

At Light Dental Studios, we understand the physical and emotional impact of tooth loss. Our experienced dental team is dedicated to providing personalized care and crafting dentures that not only restore your ability to eat, speak, and smile but also enhance your overall well-being. We take pride in the craftsmanship of our full and partial dentures, offering you a comfortable and aesthetically pleasing solution that helps you rediscover the joy of a complete smile.

Dental Implants

What are dental implants, and how do they differ from other tooth replacement options?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of biocompatible materials like titanium. They are surgically placed in the jawbone to support crowns, bridges, or dentures. Unlike other options, implants offer superior stability, durability, and a natural appearance.
How long do dental implants last?
With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime. They are known for their durability and longevity.
Do dental implants require special care compared to natural teeth?
Dental implants should be cared for like natural teeth, with regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups. There is no need for additional maintenance.

Root Canals

Is a root canal on a molar tooth more complicated or painful than on other teeth?
Molar root canals may take longer due to the complexity of the tooth's structure, but they are not necessarily more painful. Modern techniques and anesthesia make root canals on molars relatively comfortable procedures.
What is the alternative to a root canal if I have severe tooth pain or infection?
Root canal therapy is often the best option to save a tooth with severe pain or infection. Extraction is an alternative but should be considered as a last resort.
How long does it take to recover after a root canal treatment?
Most patients can resume normal activities immediately after a root canal, but some may experience mild discomfort for a few days. Full recovery typically occurs within a week.

Crowns & Bridges

What are the benefits of crowns and bridges for damaged or missing teeth?
Crowns restore damaged teeth, providing strength and a natural appearance. Bridges replace missing teeth, preventing adjacent teeth from shifting and restoring normal oral function.
How long does it take to get a crown or bridge?
The process typically involves two appointments: one for preparation and impressions and another for placement. It may take a few weeks to manufacture the custom restoration.

Dentures

What are the options for dentures, and how do they differ from one another?
Full dentures replace all teeth in an arch, while partial dentures replace multiple missing teeth in a partial arch. Denture options include traditional removable dentures and implant-supported dentures for added stability.
How do I care for my dentures to ensure they remain in good condition?
Dentures should be removed nightly, cleaned, and soaked in a denture solution. Regular check-ups with your dentist are essential to ensure a proper fit.

Composite Fillings

What are composite fillings, and why are they preferred over amalgam (silver) fillings?
Composite fillings are tooth-colored restorations made of resin and glass particles. They blend seamlessly with natural teeth, are mercury-free, and require less removal of healthy tooth structure compared to amalgam fillings.
Are composite fillings as durable as amalgam fillings?
Composite fillings are highly durable and suitable for most cavities. They bond directly to the tooth, offering long-lasting results.
