Dear Patients, 

We are so excited to see your smiling faces! We have missed the conversations, the laughter, and everything about our relationship with you. In your absence, we have been busy! Like every other place you visit, our office will look a little different when you arrive for your next appointment. 

During the week of May 4, we will begin reaching out to those of you who had appointments in the last few weeks which were cancelled. We anticipate resuming patient visits beginning the week of May 11. 

In an effort to kept you and our staff safe, we have implemented some new screening protocols to include checking temperature. We have re-arranged the patient waiting area to allow for significant space between patients as well as staggered scheduling of appointments. We have added filtration systems to our operatories. Upon arrival, you will be given the opportunity to wash your hands and use a specific mouth rinse to reduce bacterial load. Our team will also be dressed a little differently. Behind our masks are the same smiling faces that you have always known. 

As we reach out to you to reschedule lost appointments, please feel free to ask questions or express concerns to our team members. As before we are and will continue to be here to provide the safest, most exceptional dental care. 

All the best, 


Doctors Tal and Leah Wilkins

Dentures

Missing teeth can take a serious toll on your self-confidence by making eating and speaking a challenge.

Dentures replace several missing teeth or an entire dental arch, restoring the function and appearance of your smile.

So why should you choose dentures?

Dentures Make It Easier to Eat, Speak, and Smile.

Addressing tooth loss can take years off your appearance.
Designed to look like natural teeth, dentures can be customized to complement the shape of your face and improve the appearance of sunken cheeks and puckered lips.

Dentures can dramatically enhance your quality of life.
They can renew your ability to eat comfortably, enunciate clearly, and chew properly. With a fully functional smile, you can enjoy life more freely.

Implant-supported dentures provide many unique benefits. 
Dental implants secure your dentures firmly in place and prevent jawbone recession, which occurs after tooth loss. 

Implant-Supported Dentures

If You Are Suffering From Tooth Loss, You Are Not Alone.

Dentures Can Cost as Little as $300 Or More than $13,000 for a Single Arch

From Acrylic to Zironia

Acrylic is the cheapest material available ($300 to $500 per arch), but it is also the least durable. Porcelain is stronger and more realistic-looking, but can cost from $750 to $2,000 or more per arch. Zirconia is the very strongest material, costing more than $13,000 per arch.

Dental Implants

For the right candidates, implants allow dentures to be far more stable and beneficial, but they also increase the price. Placing a single implant typically costs $1,600 to $2,200 and dentures can require four to eight implants per arch.

Preparation

You may require preparatory treatments before receiving dentures, each of which will add to the total cost. A bone graft can cost $300 to $800 per area. Gum disease treatment can cost $500 to $10,000. Extractions can cost $75 to $4,000, depending on the complexity of the case.

The Benefits of Premium Dentures

When it comes to dentures, the more you are willing to spend, the more benefits you are likely to experience. While you may not need the very strongest denture on the market, paying for greater durability or a more natural-looking result may be worth the added investment.

Type Cost per Arch Durability Aesthetics
Acrylic $300 to $500 Wears quickly Acceptable
Porcelain $750 to $2,000+ More durable, can break if dropped Can be made to look highly realistic
Zirconia $13,000+ Can withstand more than 7 times the average person's bite force Can be made to look highly realistic

Small metal clasps secure partial dentures to neighboring teeth.

Explore Your Options Today

If you have several missing teeth, your dentist may recommend a partial denture. Patients missing all of their teeth are usually candidates for a full denture.

To be eligible for implant-supported restorations, you must have enough jawbone tissue to support dental implants. Bone grafting can be performed to restore lost tissue in the event that you have experienced jawbone recession. You must also resolve any conditions such as periodontal disease prior to treatment.

Don't let tooth loss ruin your smile. Dentures can replace missing teeth and last for five years or more with proper care. Schedule an exam today to find out how you can enhance your life with dentures.
