Dentures in Richmond, VA

No one should have to live with a severely damaged smile. Fortunately, you don’t have to. At Glen Forest Dental Co. in Richmond, VA, our friendly team can help you achieve a healthy, comfortable, natural-looking smile with restorative dental treatment, such as dentures. If you’re interested in replacing your severely damaged or missing teeth with an affordable dental restoration, here’s what you should know about how full or partial dentures could benefit you before scheduling your complimentary consultation at Glen Forest Dental Co.

Dentures Overview

Dentures are prosthetic tooth replacements that are used to replace missing teeth. They’re typically composed of porcelain artificial teeth and plastic gums that fit over your natural gums. Dentures can provide various benefits for someone who’s missing teeth. These include:


  • Improving your smile’s natural appearance
  • Allowing you to speak, chew, and bite normally
  • Supporting your cheeks and lips
  • Being more affordable than other tooth replacement options

When Does Someone Need to Get Partial Dentures?

If you are missing some teeth but still have many healthy natural teeth intact, partial dentures may be a good option. Partial dentures are artificial teeth held in place by attaching to your surrounding natural teeth. They restore the normal appearance, function, and comfort of your missing teeth while preserving your natural teeth.

Why Would Someone Need a Full Set of Dentures?

Full dentures are what people usually think of when they imagine dentures. They replace a full set of missing teeth on the upper or bottom jaw. While you may assume that full dentures are meant for older people, this isn’t true. They can improve the oral health of nearly anyone with severely damaged or missing teeth.

What Does the Process of Getting Dentures Look Like?

If you’re interested in improving your damaged smile with dentures, here’s what you can expect during the process.

  • The dentist will examine your mouth and create a personalized treatment plan based on your needs.
  • If you have damaged teeth, they will be extracted then your gums will need time to heal fully.
  • Once your gums have healed, an impression of your mouth will be taken.
  • Your impressions will be sent to a dental lab where your custom-made dentures will be fabricated.
