Dentures in Chicago and Orland Park
Restore Your Quality of Life with Dentures
If you are missing most or all of your teeth, and are located in the Chicago or surrounding areas, Winterset Dental offers several options to meet your needs. Dentures can restore a full arch of teeth, or they can fill large gaps in your smile, resulting from the loss of several teeth. You can select from full or partial dentures, based on your individual needs and dental health. Our doctors will evaluate your smile to determine which denture option is right for you.
As prosthodontists, we are specially trained in making dentures and we treat the process as both an art and a science. Our dentures are custom-made using durable, lifelike materials that look natural. We have worked with the same lab technician for the last 30 years and he has maintained a high level of quality control with all our work.
We carefully customize each denture we provide in order to help you experience the best possible functionality, comfort, and aesthetics. We never finalize a denture until you are 100% happy with it and when we finish, 95% of our patients find that they never need an adjustment to their dentures.
Types of Dentures: Understanding Your Teeth Options
Full dentures:Traditional full dentures can be a good option if you are missing all or most of your teeth. These removable dentures have a plastic base that will fit over your gums. They can replace your upper arch, lower arch or both.
Partial dentures:Like traditional full dentures, partials are removable. These restorations will replace several consecutive missing teeth. They also consist of a plastic base. Small metal clasps connect the partial denture to nearby teeth.
Implant-supported dentures attach to small metal implant posts that are surgically placed in the jaw to replace lost tooth roots. Implant-supported dentures are available as both full and partial restorations.
Which Type of Denture Is Right for You?
The type of denture you select will depend on your cosmetic preferences, oral health, budget and the number of teeth you are missing. Our team will take as much time as needed to explain your options and help you make an informed decision when it comes to choosing your dentures.
It is important to understand that although implant-supported dentures are more expensive than traditional dentures, they can be a much better investment in the long run. This type of denture will never shift out of place as you speak or eat and dental implants are the only solution that can prevent the bone atrophy that follows tooth loss.
While traditional dentures often require refinement as the jaw changes shape, implant-supported dentures rarely require any refinement. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. During an in-depth consultation, you and your dentist can discuss your goals and budget to determine which denture option is best for you.
Completely Personalized Dental Care
We carefully customize each denture we provide. When planning your dentures, we will take careful impressions of your gums and any surrounding teeth. We will also take pictures of your teeth, sending both the images and the impressions to our lab. Our lab technician uses top-quality restorative materials. Using premium materials and great attention to detail, we can craft a restoration that is identical to your natural teeth and looks completely natural.
Should you change your mind
If a denture patient comes back to the office within one year to get implant-supported dentures, we give you back 100% of the total you paid for the conventional denture. In other words, you can use what you paid as a down payment for your implants.
