The magic of a genuine smile radiates from within, but when the foundation of that smile – your teeth – is compromised, it can cast a shadow on your confidence. At Brighter Smiles Family Dentistry, we understand that each individual’s dental journey is unique. For those seeking a comprehensive solution for significant tooth loss, full dentures emerge as a beacon, offering both renewed aesthetics and enhanced functionality.

The Prominence of Full Dentures

Full dentures have been an enduring solution in the dental world, effectively addressing the challenges posed by the loss of all teeth in an arch. They are designed to replicate the natural appearance and function of a full set of teeth, allowing wearers to smile, speak, and eat with increased confidence and comfort. Over the years, advances in dental technology have made these dentures more realistic-looking and comfortable than ever.

Types of Dentures

  • Complete Denture: These replace all teeth and are typically placed after gums have fully healed post extractions.

  • Partial denture with metal base: Designed for patients missing some, but not all teeth. The metal framework provides durable support.

  • Immediate Complete Denture: As the name suggests, these are inserted immediately after tooth removal, ensuring no time without teeth. Adjustments may be needed as gums heal.

  • Intermediate Partial Denture: A temporary solution designed to be used between tooth extraction and the fitting of a definitive denture.

  • Flexible (pink) partial denture: Made from a flexible, lightweight material, these dentures offer comfort and a more natural appearance.

If the loss of teeth or the damage to your once-beaming smile weighs heavily on your heart, know that Dr. Fulton is here for you. With a caring touch, she’ll carry out an in-depth assessment and compassionately guide you through solutions tailored just for your unique dental journey.

Modern Dentistry, Gentle Care

Comfortable and Caring Dental Care for the Whole Family

I was a patient of Dr. Todd for years. He was great. Wasn’t sure what the experience would be like with a new dentist. I shouldn’t have worried. The staff stayed the same, and Dan’s replacement was warm and welcoming. The office was a bit quieter without Dan’s booming voice, but the dentistry was solid. I would recommend it to those looking for a new dentist.

I was able to schedule an appointment one week out and staff was able to get me seated almost immediately when I arrived. Overall staff was friendly and Dr. Fulton was able to help me with a crown on a cracked tooth. I can’t say it’s always fun going to the dentist, but Bright Smiles Family Dentistry made it easy and conformable for me to get the work I needed to be done. Will be coming here for future dental needs.

Very Friendly, fun to work with. The staff has always made us feel comfortable, the dental experience was easy and the treatment explained. No fears of going to the dentist here.

After Dr Todd retired last month I was thinking of changing to a dentist in my town and close to home. Brighter Smiles called me to schedule an appointment since I was a month past due for my 6 month cleaning. I was too busy to investigate a local dentist and schedule. I am glad I did go ahead and schedule. I love the new owner/dentist. She is super sweet and made time to do my dental work that day. She saved me from taking more time off from work and from worrying about the procedure that needed to be done. Won’t be changing dentists!
