Dentures & Partials Virginia Beach VA

Smile Again with Dependable Dentures

Dentures, partial dentures, and dental bridges are an effective solution for missing teeth. However, traditional dentures are removable, bulky, and sometimes lose their grip. Advances in technology and restorative dentistry make today’s dentures look and feel more natural than ever before.

Dentures are an effective solution for people who have lost teeth. We provide partial dentures to replace one or two teeth, or a full set of dentures to replace an entire arch of teeth. Dentures provide an affordable and convenient way to restore the look and function of your smile.

Our Virginia Beach dentists provide dentures to replace lost teeth because of decay, trauma, or other dental issues. We can also use them as a cosmetic solution for those who are unhappy with their existing dentures.

We create each denture individually to fit your mouth perfectly. A comfortable and secure fit allows you to eat and speak normally. Additionally, you can easily remove them for cleaning and maintenance.

For those looking for a more permanent solution, dental implant-secured dentures may be the best option. Dental implant posts are artificial tooth roots that our dentist surgically inserts into your jawbone. The posts provide support for replacement teeth such as crowns, dentures or bridges.

Dentures FAQs

What if my dentures do not fit correctly?

Your dentures may be old and no longer fit properly. Using denture creams only hides the fact that you may need new dentures. Replacing them periodically is common because your mouth changes over time, but your dentures do not. Dentists and the American Dental Association (ADA) recommend replacing traditional dentures every 5 to 10 years.

Are implant dentures covered by insurance?

Most dental insurance providers do not cover implant-related procedures. Insurance companies deem these treatments as cosmetic and elective. However, we want everyone to be able to afford quality dental care. We provide dental financing options, a Dental Care Savings Plan, and affordable dental implant services.

Can I get my teeth pulled and dentures on the same day?

Yes, you will receive temporary dentures, also known as same-day dentures. We will make sure you don’t leave our dental office without teeth and a functioning mouth. It takes some time to create your final restoration. So we will give you temporary dentures to wear while we create your new dentures.

How long should you wear dentures each day?

You should wear your dentures for at least 8 hours a day to help maintain the shape of your gums and jawbone. Patients should wear them during the day and remove them at night. This gives the jaw time to rest and gives patients a chance to soak or clean their dentures at night. Some individuals may need to wear their dentures for longer periods depending on recommendations from their dentist.

Can I sleep with dentures?

You can sleep with dentures on, but we do not recommend doing this on a regular basis. Dentists recommend that patients remove their dentures before bed to give their mouth a break, and give gums and jaw time to rest.

Types of Dental Bridges in Virginia Beach

Coastal Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry provides dental bridges to replace one or more missing teeth. Dental bridges can prevent surrounding teeth from shifting out of place. Modern bridges can also improve your ability to chew and speak properly, and help maintain the shape of your face.

Fixed Dental Bridge

Traditional bridges comprise of a prosthetic tooth (or series of teeth), supported by dental crowns. The dentist places each dental crown over prepared teeth adjacent to the gap.

A fixed dental bridge that uses dental crowns has some limitations that you should consider. This type of dental prosthetic requires placement of a dental crown on the teeth that neighbor the missing tooth. This can be an issue, particularly if those teeth are healthy, because it places stress on the natural teeth. This could lead to wear, cavity formation, or other dental issues.

Implant-supported Bridge

An alternative to a traditional bridge is a dental implant-supported hybrid bridge. Our dentist can place one or more dental implants in the jaw to support the bridge for a more stable and conservative treatment.

Implant-supported bridges are a safe and effective solution for replacing missing teeth. With the help of implants, they provide a secure and reliable fit that looks natural and can last for many years. They are also easy to maintain, as they require no special cleaning techniques or tools.

Additionally, they can help improve your overall oral health by preventing adjacent teeth from shifting out of place. Implant-supported bridges are an ideal choice for those looking to restore their smile without sacrificing comfort or durability.

Resin-bonded Bridge

A third option is a resin-bonded bridge. Dentists use this type of treatment on younger patients with missing teeth (congenitally or otherwise). Resin-bonded bridges are a popular choice for replacing missing teeth in younger adults as well.

This type of tooth replacement uses strong composite resin to bond the bridge to the existing teeth. Unlike traditional bridges, resin-bonded bridges do not require extensive preparation of the adjacent teeth. We can use them on patients with receding gums or weakened tooth structure.

Additionally, resin-bonded bridges are less expensive than other types of bridgework and require less maintenance over time. Visit our dental practice and let us create a secure and natural-looking fit with bridges for you.
