What Are Dentures?
Dentures are a custom way to replace many or all of your teeth. These removable teeth can help you eat, speak, and smile with ease and confidence. At KFA Dental Excellence, one of our highly skilled dentists can help you decide if you need full or partial dental dentures based on your current mouth and what your aesthetic and functional goals are. Full dentures can replace your whole upper arch, lower arch, or both. Partial dentures will use your remaining teeth as support for the dentures. While removable, dentures will be natural and beautiful and help you gain the smile you’ve been wanting.

"I have been going to this dental practice for more than 25 years and couldn't imagine getting dental work done anywhere else. They have moved from their original location and have added 2 dentists over the years but a practice I always loved got even better over time. I cannot say enough positive things about my experience there. The office is modern and immaculate. When you arrive for your appointment, you are immediately greeted by the friendly staff at the reception desk. The office is run like clockwork so you never have to wait very long. Once called in, you are personally escorted to your dental chair (which has a massage option) where they go out their way to make you feel extremely comfortable. You get personalized attention to discuss any problems or concerns you may be having in your mouth. This office has all the latest and greatest in technology to make your experience the best it can be. The dentists, hygienists and all staff members are great people who are very caring and dedicated to their profession. My family of five are all patients and although my older children moved away from the area, they return to have all their dental work done by KFA Dental!"- K.S. / Google / Feb 28, 2020
"I love KFA dental ! 5 years ago my son was treated by Dr. Kahn for some cosmetic dental work. My son was about to go away to college and was very unhappy with his smile. He rarely smiled and that made me hurt for him. We had a consultation with Dr Kahn who was happy to help my son. Dr. Kahn’s care and concern, along with his professional expertise brought back my son’s smile. To this day my son still talks about his smile and how happy he is with Dr. Kahn’s help. I would highly recommend KFA dental. #happysonhappymom AND… Over the past year Dr. Ferrari has helped me with my dental care. I came to her with concerns regarding my 30 year old cosmetic dental work. My case was extensive, needing implants , orthodontics and Endodontics along with cosmetic work. Dr Ferrari took on my case and guided me through every step of the way. She listened to my desires for a finished smile and I felt she truly understood what I was communicating. She is great at what she does, and is very detail oriented. I love the fact that she is a perfectionist and does not settle for anything less. After the structural work was completed, Dr Ferrari put her professionalism to work and completed my cosmetic work. Today was my final visit and I could not be happier. Her complete staff at KFA are wonderful as well ( From the front desk, to the office manager Christine, to the hygienists). I highly recommend Dr. Ferrari for any work (routine maintenance to cosmetic). She’s the real deal!"- L.T. / Google / Sep 29, 2021

They have treated my entire extended family from ages 16-87. The office is immaculate. You are never rushed and there is always a comprehensive plan in place before any work begins. My husband John has worked for Henry Schein for many years and is highly selective re dentists and best practices. He has never seen a cleaner, more well run practice. Most of all they’re a lot of fun . Ps ty ty ty for everything 💕"- P.D. / Google / Sep 26, 2021
Can I Get Dentures?
You could be a good candidate for dentures if you are missing most or all of your teeth. If you have natural teeth, these can either be removed for a full denture or you can keep them as support for a partial denture. We will discuss the benefits of each during your initial consultation. It's important that your gums and jawbone are still healthy as they will play an important role in keeping up your oral health with dentures. At your consultation, we will review your mouth and discuss your denture choices based on your needs and budget. At KFA Dental Excellence, we want to work with you to educate you and make a united decision together.
How Will You Create My Dentures?
Getting full or partial dentures is a great way to create the smile you’ve been wanting. After discussing your goals with one of our dentists, we will create a custom plan for your dentures. We will start by removing any teeth, if necessary, then take impressions. These impressions will help us customize your dentures so they are comfortable and fit properly. If you are getting partial dentures, we will match the natural color of your teeth to ensure your dentures match as seamlessly as possible. From there, we will fit the dentures to make sure they are secure and comfortable. KFA Dental Excellence has many state-of-the-art technologies to help make this process run smoothly, quickly, and efficiently.
What Should I Expect After Getting My Dentures?
While it’s likely you’ll love your smile right away, it can take some time for your new dentures to feel natural and comfortable. Rest assured, however, that it will become easier to eat and speak, and it shouldn’t be long before everything looks, sounds, and feels natural. If your dentures feel loose, let us know and we can have them readjusted for a tighter fit. Cleaning your dentures is similar to that of brushing your teeth; you will want to brush them twice daily, but you’ll also want to add in the step of soaking them when you’re not wearing them. This will ensure they do not dry out. Scheduling regular dental exams and teeth cleanings are important, as we will check your dentures during these times and make any necessary follow-up appointments for adjustments or replacements. However, with proper care, your dentures should last you a long time.
