Find out how dentures can improve the way you eat, speak and smile.
Dentures are made individually and are custom fitted to each patient.
The process starts by taking an impression of your teeth. Our dentists will have the patient bite into a tray that will then be used to make a model of their teeth. After measuring your mouth and gums, our office will also color match your teeth. These preparations will help us create dentures that will blend in with your smile.
We happily offer complete and partial dentures in Gainesville and Herndon, Virginia, as a way of helping our patients renew their smiles and confidence. So, if you have missing teeth, our dentists can help you at GoSmiles Dentistry. Call and get in touch with us today if you feel ready to get your smile back.
Types of Dentures
We offer several different options for dentures, including:
- Full Dentures: These are used to replace one or both dental arches. Because these replace all the teeth, they blend in more naturally with your smile and can be easily removed for cleaning.
- Partial: Partial dentures can be used to “fill in” sections of missing teeth. Each can be customized to fit and restore your smile, while preventing damage to the remaining healthy teeth.
- All-on-4® Implants: This procedure uses implants to secure a full set of replacement teeth. Unlike individual implants, each All-on-4 post can anchor multiple prosthetic teeth, rather than just one. And unlike dentures, All-on-4 treatments usually take only two appointments, rather than the usual five.

Caring for Dentures
Dentures require different care than your natural teeth. However, it is important to still maintain good dental hygiene to keep your smile healthy and prevent the appliance from breaking or staining.
Be careful when taking your dentures out to clean since they can easily slip out and fall.
Use a denture brush to clean the denture appliance every day and prevent stains. Make sure the brush has soft bristles to prevent scratches.
Remove and soak the appliance each night in a dental cleaner. Do not use toothpaste, but sometimes a mild soap can be diluted and used to clean the appliance. Thoroughly rinse before replacing.
Once in a while, you will need to have your dentures adjusted by a professional. Because the gum tissue and bone can shift and become less dense, it will change how your appliance fits.
