Wilshire Smile Studio Professionals Can Provide Affordable Options If You Need Dentures

Discover affordable full and partial dentures at Wilshire Smile Studio. We offer a wide range of dentures to help enhance your smile and improve your lifestyle.

Dentures are replacements for missing teeth. Complete dentures replace all teeth and removable partial dentures replace some teeth.

By matching each individual’s unique smile and bite, dentures can improve facial appearance and self-confidence. Dentures may also improve speech problems caused by missing teeth and will improve chewing.

For patients missing several, but not all, of their teeth, a removable partial denture may be recommended. This type of denture uses the remaining teeth to hold or anchor the removable bridge in place. There are many different types and designs for removable partial dentures.



Typically, a removable partial denture is made of a metal framework with pink plastic to replace the gum tissue and plastic or resin denture teeth.

The number of missing teeth and their location will affect the comfort and stability of the removable partial denture. The use of dental implants may increase the stability of a removable partial denture or dental implants may be the better solution for replacing the missing teeth.

The partial appliance can be actually not only be removable, but permanently fixed into your jaw, if you prefer.


Full dentures are replacements for missing teeth that look similar and are fitted into an acrylic base that is crafted to appear to be your natural gums. An upper denture features a plate, which covers the roof of your mouth, while the lower denture is horseshoe-shaped and rests securely on the gums and bone.

You may be surprised by just how natural your dentures can look. Denture technology has advanced considerably. In fact, with the quality, comfort, and natural-looking appearance of dentures offered at Wilshire Smile Studio, we’re sure you’ll find a high-quality denture you’ll feel comfortable and confident wearing.

    The natural process of resorption (shrinkage of the jawbone) that occurs when you have an unhealthy or under-stimulated jaw as a result of missing teeth can, throughout time, cause the distance between your nose and your chin to shrink. This can make your face look “sunken-in” and prematurely aged.

    We encourage you to talk openly about your concerns and any questions with our team of professionals.



    Remove and rinse dentures after eating.

    Handle your dentures carefully.

    Clean your mouth after removing your dentures.

    Brush your dentures at least daily.

    Soak dentures overnight.

    Rinse dentures thoroughly before putting them back in your mouth, especially if using a denture-soaking solution.


    Overdentures are replacement teeth retained by dental implants.

    Overdentures were developed to help both fully toothless patients and those who have just lost a few teeth regain a quality of life, which most likely has been lacking due to the lack of a fully-functioning set of teeth.

    When your overdenture is retained with implants, it fits more securely than one held in with only adhesives. This fit also increases the stability of the overdenture, reducing or even eliminating unnecessary movement during chewing and talking.

    This lessens the instances of sores and embarrassing dislodgement.

    Our expert team will take full-mouth digital x-rays and a 3-D CT scan of your mouth to assess what would work best for you. If additional teeth need to be extracted, a surgical appointment will be scheduled; following a healing period of a few weeks.

    A temporary denture will be provided to allow you to lead a normal life until we place the dentures.

    Once your mouth has healed, impressions and molds will be made for a permanent denture that will be crafted by a top dental lab to fit your lifestyle.

    After it is placed and checked for comfort, our denture specialists will explain how to care for your dental appliance, including occasional return visits to adjust it for comfort, as needed.


    Care For Your Implants and Overdentures. Keeping your implants and overdenture clean is an integral part of their long-term health and success.

    1. Fill a washing basin with warm water—this will keep the overdenture from fracturing.
    2. Then apply detergent onto a soft bristle toothbrush and thoroughly clean every surface of the overdenture.
    3. Remove the overdenture and immerse in a cup of plain cold water before bed each night.
