Philadelphia, PA Full & Partial Dentures
Missing teeth ruin the appearance of your smile, but the problem doesn’t stop there.
Eating your favorite foods can be a challenge, which may make it difficult to get the the proper nutrition you need. You may also feel self-conscious because you don’t want everyone to see the gap in your smile. To make matters worse, your face can take on a sunken and tired look, making you appear older than you are.
Unfortunately, millions of Americans live with missing teeth, but you don’t have to be one of them! Natural-looking full and partial dentures created by Dr. Debra V. Irvin may be just the solution you need.
Types of Dentures We Offer
There are two general types of dentures – full and partial – but they may be used differently:
- We use removable full dentures when all the teeth on your upper or lower jaw (or both) are missing.
- Removable partial dentures are appropriate when you are missing one or just a few teeth.
- We place immediate dentures during the same appointment that your teeth are removed.
- Implant-supported dentures may be either a full or partial denture that attaches to the dental implant and holds the denture securely in place.
Modern Dentures Look Great!
If the idea of dentures makes you think of artificial teeth that look fake and unnatural, you won’t believe how things have changed!
Dr. Irvin has been practicing for over 30 years and has seen lots of improvements in dental materials and technology. Today, combining updated techniques with her extensive experience, she designs dentures that look so natural that no one will ever know they’re not your original teeth!
An important part of the process is the time that Dr. Irvin takes to listen to your concerns and help you decide what type of denture is right for you. She will talk to you about your expectations because we aren't satisfied with the results until we know that you're satisfied!
After talking with you, Dr. Irvin will design dentures that are customized to fit the shape of your mouth and blend naturally with the color of your gums. Her goals are that your dentures feel comfortable, you can chew well and enjoy your food, and you are proud to show off your attractive, confident smile.
Are Dentures Right for You?
Dentures are a great tooth replacement solution because they work so well for so many people. But after talking with you, Dr. Irvin may suggest a different option that’s more appropriate for your specific needs.
Many insurance plans cover at least part of the cost of dentures. We accept traditional and PPO insurances and will file your claim directly with your company as a courtesy to you.
But we don’t want you to worry if you aren’t insured! We offer CareCredit financing that is easy to apply for and allows you to break down the cost of your dentures into manageable monthly payments. Interest-free payment plans are available.
