Dentures Smithtown, NY
Dentures are artificial gums and teeth that can be used to replace missing or removed teeth. They will be perfectly molded to your mouth and, with proper denture maintenance, will look and feel like a full natural set of teeth.
- Improved oral health and decreased pain from problem teeth
- Overall appearance of your smile improved
- Dentures will assist in eating foods that require chewing
- Helps support facial structure around the lips and cheeks
Dentures are made of resin that is molded to fit to the shape of your mouth to act and appear as teeth. They are not only great for having the appearance of perfect teeth but also for acting like teeth while eating. Dentures are strong and will assist in chewing and breaking down any foods that require you to do so. They are also a great way to improve the overall health of your mouth. Often times as we age our teeth will decay and cause pain. Dentures allow you to remove those problem teeth and replace them with a beautiful set of new ones.
Ask us Anything…
Are you missing teeth and want to improve your smile and your life? Dentures can enhance your smile and make eating easier.

Conventional Dentures (Full Denture)
Conventional dentures, also known as full dentures, are for patients who have lost all healthy tooth structure. These dentures are completely removable, giving you control over when you want to wear them.
Also known as a removable dental crown, partial dentures bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. The major difference between conventional bridges and partial dentures is the ability to remove partial dentures. You have complete control over when you want to wear them! These dentures are only possible if some healthy tooth structure is salvageable.
Care and Maintenance
Your dentist will provide you with all the at-home care knowledge to ensure that your mouth is healthy, your dentures are comfortable and that they last for a long time. You will need to wear your dentures continuously for the first few weeks in order for your gums to adapt.
What are dentures made of?
Dentures are now made up of resin that is molded to fit your mouth comfortably.
How do you clean them?
Run clean water over them to remove any food particles then brush them with a denture brush or a very soft toothbrush using denture cleaner.
Can I use my regular toothbrush/ toothpaste to clean my dentures?
No! Regular toothpaste and electric brushed are to strong and abrasive for your dentures. Over time they will break down your denture material.
Can I sleep with my dentures in?
No, give your gums some time to relax. Take your dentures out while sleeping and keep them submerged in warm water so they don’t dry out and lose their shape.
Dentures + Partials

Dentures, and partial dentures, can aid with the appearance and discomfort of missing teeth.

What Are Dentures?
Dentures are a full replacement for missing teeth, custom-fitted to each patient and designed for removal when not in use. A denture can replace anywhere from one tooth to all sixteen teeth in an arch. There are several types of dentures, based on the number of teeth being replaced and the materials used to fabricate them. Using naturally-colored material for both teeth and gum sections, they seamlessly recreate the appearance and functions of a row of genuine, healthy teeth. Dentures can be fitted for the whole mouth, or the upper or lower jaw separately. Most modern dentures are constructed from high-grade dental acrylic resin, a strong, durable material used in many dental procedures requiring the toughness and appearance of natural teeth and trusted by dentists around the world.
Pearl Dental Studio offers both full and partial dentures for all patients experiencing minor or total tooth loss. Our dental associates take the utmost care in fitting and constructing dentures that suit our patients’ comfort, needs, and tastes. From the functions of everyday use to your preference in general appearance, we provide the options that fit your lifestyle! Call us today and see how our full and partial dentures can improve your life!
The Difference Between Full and Partial Dentures in NY
Seamlessly replaces a full row of missing teeth, placed directly on the gums.
Replaces multiple, but not all, missing teeth on the upper or lower jaw. Similar to bridges.
Are Dentures Uncomfortable?
While actually wearing and getting used to the routine of denture wear and care is an adjustment, modern, well-fitted dentures have proven to be perfectly comfortable in long-term use and very effective at easing discomfort caused by eating or speaking with multiple missing teeth.
How Do I Take Care of Dentures?
Place your dentures in warm, but not hot, water when not in use
Use denture cleanser solutions only when cleaning dentures with no metal pieces
Like teeth, dentures also need to be brushed! Use a non-abrasive cleanser to brush your dentures and rinse thoroughly before use
How Long Do Dentures Take?
The process of fitting and manufacturing dentures varies from person to person, taking as little as three weeks or as long as several months.
We recommend making an appointment and having the condition of your circumstances evaluated by a professional to estimate a timeline for denture manufacturing. Call Pearl Dental Studio today to make an appointment for full and partial dentures and see one of our dental professionals!
