Our dentures are customized to not only restore the balance, health and function of your bite, but also complement your appearance. Missing teeth make eating and speaking extremely difficult and can make you feel self-conscious. Because teeth provide underlying support to facial muscles, missing teeth allow cheeks to sink and lips to curl inwards, which can make patients look older than they are. With our onsite lab and Dr. Cummings commitment to the process many patients want and are grateful for our customized service.

Featured Case: Dentures
This patient has not replaced her dentures in over 15 years. She wanted new dentures for her lip and face support. Patients with dentures older than 5-7 years often lose support and therefore need to replace.
The Denture Procedure
Creating a set of dentures often requires about three visits to our office. Dr. Cummings will first take a series of measurements and impressions of your gums and any existing teeth. Next, he will create a wax model from the impressions. You will try this model on several times so that the dentist can adjust the design and determine the correct shape and fit. He will also use the model to make sure the coloring and overall look of the denture complement your appearance. Once the model is approved, Dr. Cummings will work with a technician in our onsite dental lab, overseeing the fabrication of your new smile.
In just a few visits, you can have a new set of dentures that helps you look and feel your best.
When the final denture is finished, you will return to our office, where Dr. Cummings will perform any necessary adjustments to achieve a proper fit. He will also provide you with instructions for dentures care and maintenance.
Some patients, after they receive their new dentures want more. They understand that implants can eliminate the need to remove dentures daily. We prepare for this process and the newly fabricated dentures serve as excellent temporaries while having dental implants inserted.
