Serenity Family Dentistry – Dentures

Denture dentistry has been around a long time. And our nation’s first president was rumored to have worn wooden dentures. Denture technology has increasingly advanced and now offers comfortable, natural looking dental replacements. Today’s dentures are often created using an acrylic resin for the gum fit and either hardened plastic or porcelain for the teeth.

At Serenity Family Dentistry in Charlotte, we want to see your smile. Our dentures are designed for a custom fit that will provide comfort and long life durability.

Types of Dentures

There are two types of dentures – partial and full. A partial denture fills a gap of missing permanent teeth. Unlike a partial bridge, a denture is removable and not bonded to surrounding teeth. A full denture is a solution for a patient has lost all of their teeth or had them removed. The natural looking dentures are fitted to the gum line. In time, your denture fit may seem loose at the gum line. Our team at Serenity Family Dentistry will continue to evaluate how your dentures are fitting in your regular office visits. We are trained in the latest in denture stabilization.

Are Dentures Right For Me?

Even with life-long good dental care, there may be a time when wearing dentures becomes an option. Dentures are not right for everyone. To see if dentures are right for you, call our office and schedule an appointment. Our team of professionals will be glad to help.

Caring For Your Dentures

Just like your natural teeth, you need to care for your dentures. They can stain, retain bacteria or dry out. When caring for your dentures, be careful not to let them fall onto a hard surface like a sink our counter top.

  1. Avoid hard to chew or really sticky foods like gum and caramel. Brush your dentures daily and rinse between meals.
  2. Ask your dentist for a recommendation on a gentle toothpaste to use. Many common toothpastes may be too stringent on your dentures.
  3. Keep your dentures in water or cleaning solution when not in use to prevent drying and cracking.
  4. Our dentist is available to go over care instructions with you.

Our Happy Customers

"I had my first crown put in this past month. SFD, was forever patient as I was dealing with a cough, and continually had to ask to stop for a moment. The team is kind, sweet, and very thorough in explaining what's going on, and the costs, before any work begins. We were honestly thinking of finding a dentist closer to our home, but the staff at SFD has made this drive worth it for my family."

Jim Jim

"Dr. Attaway and her team are thorough and compassionate. They explain procedures and reasons for treatment plans recommended. I was a patient of this clinic prior to Dr. Attaway's arrival, and am pleased that Debbie and Laura are still there, and the new additions are also very nice."

Erin Erin

"Debbie is a great and personable hygienist and Dr. Attaway is gentle and kind. They were very honest with me about my teeth and how I should take care of them. Dr. Attaway even recommended a new mouth wash so that I could hopefully avoid a cavity. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a dentist."
