Dentures – Carrollton, TX
Custom-Made Smile Replacement Options
If you have lost your natural teeth to disease, decay or injury, a set of complete dentures can help restore your appearance as well as your health. Dr. Kimberly Capua can place full or partial dentures to help you enjoy a full smile once more. She takes pride in helping patients get beautiful, complete sets of teeth. Read on to see how we can provide you with a restored smile using custom-made full & partial dentures!
Types of Dentures
We offer multiple options for smile replacements, and the denture that we recommend will depend on your pattern of tooth loss. These types of dentures include:
If you’re missing part of your smile, we can complete it with personalized partial dentures. These are prosthetic teeth, which are typically held in place by discreet metal clasps that use your remaining teeth for support. Our partial dentures can be designed to correct a variety of lost teeth, filling in your smile like missing puzzle pieces.
If you’re missing all or most of your teeth, Dr. Capua can use a full denture to restore the look and function of your smile. A full denture is a gum-colored resin base that is attached to prosthetic teeth. Usually made out of a special resin, it is designed to look just like your natural smile, and it relies on suction to remain in place when eating, speaking, and grinning.
Candidates for Dentures
Are you wondering whether or not you’re a good candidate for dentures? The best way to find out is to schedule a consultation at our office. Dr. Capua will carefully examine the condition of your oral health and your pattern of tooth loss before recommending the best treatment option. Typically, patients who could benefit from dentures are those who are missing all, most, or some of their teeth and have a commitment to maintaining good oral health. While you may no longer have natural teeth, dentures still require some maintenance and care to ensure you can keep smiling for years to come.
Benefits of Dentures
We offer custom-made full and partial dentures because of the many advantages they will bring to your smile, including:
- Appearance: Enjoy a seamlessly full and beautiful set of teeth thanks to dentures.
- Confidence: Say goodbye to self-consciousness due to your missing teeth. Instead, dentures allow you to proudly show off your smile.
- Health: Dentures allow you to eat a more varying diet than you probably were without a tooth replacement, giving you more nutrition daily.
- Maintenance: Full dentures are removeable, making them incredibly easy to clean and maintain each day.

I’m Interested in Dentures—Where Do I Start?
If you’re ready to start your journey towards restoring your complete, confident smile, your first step is a consultation with Dr. Capua. During this first appointment, she’ll carefully inspect your mouth, gums, and jaw. If dentures are a good choice for you, she’ll fully explain all your options as well as her recommendations. However, if your oral health needs to be improved before you can be fitted with dentures, she’ll work with you to create a custom treatment plan to get you ready for your brand-new smile.
Will My Dentures Be Noticeable?
Thanks to modern dental technology and techniques, dentures are more lifelike and comfortable than ever. If you’re filling the gaps in your smile with partial dentures, we can match the color of your new teeth to the rest of your pearly whites so they fit in seamlessly. If you’re choosing to replace one or both arches with a full denture, you can rest assured that your new smile will be crafted out of high-quality materials that are both reliable and lifelike.
Will I Be Able to Eat Normally with Dentures?
Even though dentures can replace your teeth quickly, it will take a little bit of time for you to get used to them. As you learn how to use your dentures properly, we recommend sticking to a diet of soft, nutritious foods. When you feel more comfortable with them, you can gradually progress onto crunchier and stickier meals. In most cases, patients are able to eat with ease after about a month of practice.
How Are Dentures Cared for?
Just like natural teeth, plaque and bacteria will build up on your dentures throughout the day. The more these particles accumulate, the higher your risk of serious oral health issues, so it’s essential that you keep your new smile clean. However, brushing your dentures with your normal toothbrush and toothpaste can end up doing more harm than good! These products are too abrasive and will scratch away at your dentures. Instead, make sure to use ADA-approved denture brushes and cleaners to keep your new smile strong and sparkling!
How Long Do Dentures Last?
We precisely craft every set of dentures to provide beautiful, durable, and long-lasting results. Typically, dentures will last between 5 and 10 years before needing to be repaired or replaced. While you can make the most out of their lifespan with the proper care, it’s important that you call us right away for an appointment if your dentures begin to feel loose or uncomfortable.
You deserve to have a beautiful, comfortable, and healthy smile that you’re proud to show off. To see if dentures are right for you, give us a call today to schedule your consultation!
