Our custom dentures in Rohnert Park are an excellent way to replace all your missing teeth efficiently. These specially designed prosthetics are fitted for both comfort and esthetics, providing you with results you can feel confident about showing off each day.

Full Dentures (“Plates”)

If you need to restore all teeth in one arch (your upper or lower jaw), a full denture or “plate” may be one of your best options. Dentures provide both efficiency and affordability, making them one of the most traditional choices for smile restoration.

Upper dentures cover the entire roof of your mouth, creating a seal between your prosthesis and gum tissue. Lower dentures follow the contour of your jaw so as not to impede your tongue.

Adjusting to a new denture can take a few days of practice. Give yourself plenty of grace, eat smaller bites of food, and make a point to speak to yourself in the mirror as you learn to adapt to your custom prosthesis.

Partial Denture Designs

A partial denture is used when you still have several healthy teeth that don’t need to be extracted. Instead, the removable appliance snaps into place around your natural teeth, only replacing the missing ones.

Depending on your preferences and the number of teeth missing, partial dentures can be made from a variety of different materials. Some feature a reinforced chrome base, while others are made of more flexible acrylic.

Implant-Supported Dentures

In addition to traditional removable dentures, Sonoma Smiles also offers implant-supported denture options.

Denture Care And Maintenance

To get the most out of your new appliance, follow these important steps:

  • Remove your denture or partial nightly. Do not ever sleep with your appliance on.
  • Soak your appliance in an effervescent denture cleanser to help loosen the stain and plaque deposits.
  • Each morning, brush your denture thoroughly before putting it back into your mouth.
  • Remember to clean your mouth at least twice a day with an extra-soft toothbrush or washcloth to help prevent infections.
  • Bring your denture to your regular checkups for us to evaluate the way it fits.
  • If anything rubs or feels uncomfortable, be sure to let us know. Occasional adjustments or relines may be necessary.

What types of cosmetic dentures are available?

Dentures are available in various shapes and sizes to meet diverse needs. Dentures are a perfect solution whether you’ve lost one or all teeth. These are denture options available at Sonoma Smiles.

Complete dentures: When you have extensive tooth loss, full dentures are perfect for smile restoration. Complete dentures consist of life-looking teeth mounted on a flesh-colored base. Full dentures rest on the gums and are secured with adhesives or suction. However, you can consider implant dentures if you want added stability.
Partials: If you have lost a couple of teeth, you don’t need a complete set of dentures. Partials offer effective solutions for patients who have missing teeth but still retain healthy teeth. Partial dentures comprise tooth-colored artificial teeth secured on the neighboring teeth with metal clasps.

How are cosmetic dentures different from standard ones?

Dentures aren’t created equal. Unlike standard dentures, our restorations are made from premium materials, resulting in a proper fit and natural appearance. Besides, our dentures are created with impressions of your bite, promising a secure, comfortable fit. When you opt for our dentures, you invest in restorations that look and function like natural teeth.

What are permanent dentures?

The term permanent is a bit misleading because we know most things in life aren’t permanent. “Permanent dentures” are screwed into dental implants anchored in the jawbone. Unlike traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures can’t be removed by a patient—only a dentist can remove them.

Implant dentures are more stable than standard dentures, so don’t expect them to shift, click, or fall out when eating, talking, or smiling.

What are the benefits of dentures?

Dentures offer numerous life-changing benefits, ranging from improved aesthetics to boosted confidence. If you are considering cosmetic dentures, it’s one of the best decisions you’ll make in life. These are the many benefits of premium dentures.

– Renewed oral function
– Enhanced aesthetics
– Youthful-looking appearance
– Enhanced confidence
– Cost-effective restoration

How do I clean my dentures?

Denture maintenance is crucial for maintaining their longevity and natural look. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to clean your dentures with liquid soap or a mild denture cleaner. Your dentist may recommend you soak your dentures in a denture-cleaning solution or clean water to remove stains and bacteria. Before wearing dentures, brush and floss your teeth to discourage plaque buildup.

What are the alternatives to dentures?

Dentures aren’t the only option for replacing missing teeth. Other viable options include dental implants and bridges. Bridges are considered if you have healthy teeth remaining, but implants can restore your smile, whether missing one or all teeth.
