At Smiles for Life Dental Care, serving the greater Harrisonburg, VA, area, we offer several types of dentures.
What are Dentures?
Dentures are removable dental appliances designed to replace missing teeth and restore oral functionality and aesthetics. They are custom-made to fit the unique shape of an individual’s mouth and are typically made of a combination of acrylic resin and metal materials.
Dentures can be categorized into two main types:

You can also reach us by phone.
Traditional Full Dentures
If you have lost all of your teeth, or require extraction of all remaining teeth, you may be a candidate for complete dentures. These restorations are likely what you picture when you think of dentures. A complete denture can replace the entire upper and lower dental arch. Our partner lab will create your prosthetic with a plastic base that matches the shade of your gums, and the synthetic teeth will have a natural appearance.
Traditional Partial Dentures
A partial will be recommended if you still have some remaining healthy teeth. A traditional partial denture is similar to a traditional full denture. However, it will only replace part of your dental arch and relies on hidden clasps that connect to your remaining healthy teeth.
We recommend implant-supported dentures for the most stable and realistic results possible. Dentures attach to implant posts that are surgically embedded in your jawbone. Dental implants will never allow your denture to slip out of place, and are the only restorative option that can prevent jaw atrophy following tooth loss. They can support full and partial dentures. Our dentists will evaluate your oral and physical health to determine your candidacy for implant-supported dentures. If your jawbone has started to recede, you may require a bone graft or sinus lift before you can receive implants.
All-On-X Permanent Bridge
This full-arch restoration is made from state-of-the-art zirconia, which is incredibly durable and will not absorb stains or odors. It will attach to five or six implant posts, and your dentist will usually attach it on the same day as your implant surgery. Immediate bridges allow patients to enjoy the benefits of a complete smile right after dental implant surgery.

Our Smiles for Life Patients Know
When I embarked on my journey to find the right dental implant service, I initially gravitated towards the two prominent national brands in the field. However, my search took an unexpected and incredibly satisfying turn when I decided to explore the offerings of a local implant provider. Little did I know that this local gem would redefine my expectations of what a top-notch implant service should be like. Here's why my experience with them was nothing short of extraordinary: Meticulous Charting of Teeth and Gums: ★★★★★ One of the first things that set this local provider apart from the national giants was their unwavering commitment to precision and detail. While the big names seemed more focused on the implant procedure itself, this local gem took the time to meticulously chart the condition of my teeth and gums. This attention to detail ensured that my implant procedure was tailored to my specific needs and challenges. It was clear that they understood the importance of a solid foundation for the success of the implants. Infection Prevention Education: ★★★★★ Implant surgery is not without its risks, and one of the key concerns is the possibility of infection. What truly impressed me was the depth of information and guidance this local provider offered regarding infection prevention. They didn't just gloss over this critical aspect; they took the time to discuss the infection possibilities associated with dental implants and, more importantly, outlined a comprehensive plan to combat and mitigate such conditions. Their proactive approach to ensuring patient safety was truly reassuring. First-Year Implant Supervision: ★★★★★ Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of my experience with this local implant provider was their commitment to the long-term success of my dental implants. While the national brands seemed content with the implant procedure itself, this local provider went above and beyond by offering required supervision for the first year following the implant surgery. This level of aftercare and ongoing support was simply unparalleled and gave me peace of mind knowing that my oral health was in capable hands. In conclusion, my exploration journey for dental implants took an unexpected turn when I discovered this exceptional local implant provider. Their dedication to detail, infection prevention, and post-surgery care were nothing short of outstanding. They not only surpassed the standards set by the national brands but also redefined my expectations of what a truly exceptional implant service should encompass. If you're in search of dental implants and want an experience that goes above and beyond, I wholeheartedly recommend giving this local gem a visit. They've certainly earned my trust and gratitude.

Morgan is the best! I hadn’t been to the dentist in 10+ years and was nervous even though I’d always been a fan of the dentist (weird I know). Morgan explained her recommendations, how the plan would work and set me up with my various appointment needs.
