Full or partial dentures are an effective method to replace missing teeth. These prosthetic appliances should make it simpler to speak and chew with confidence, and they revitalize the look of your smile after tooth loss. Our dental professionals offer full and partial removable and implant-supported dentures for adults of all ages in Copperas Cove, TX. Single-arch dentures replace all of the teeth in the upper arch, lower arch, or both, whereas partial dentures are utilized when some of the natural teeth still remain intact. At ACE Dental of Cove, our team can help you learn if removable or implant-supported dentures are right for your needs and have them custom-crafted for an attractive appearance and comfortable fit. Call us for a restoration exam with our experienced dental team to get started.
Types of Dentures
Suiting your individual needs is vital to us, which is why our Copperas Cove, TX facility offers several individualized denture solutions for tooth replacement:
- Removable partial dentures replace empty areas left behind by a single or a few lost teeth. They are kept in their location by conveniently hooking around nearby natural teeth and can be removed at any time.
- Removable full dentures replace a whole upper and/or lower arch and are secured by the natural curve of the jawbone or a dental glue.
- Implant-retained dentures take the place of some or a whole arch of teeth. These restorations are fastened to oral posts in the jaw for increased sturdiness.
"Amazing dentistry. Every employee was not only professional but friendly and kind as well. Dr. Kim and his assistant Zinnia in particular were exceptional, easing the nervousness I feel about dentists from bad childhood visits. They'll absolutely be my go to for dentistry work for as long as I'm in the cove area."- D.M. / Google / Sep 10, 2021

"I called Friday morning to ask for an appointment for a tooth extraction and I was shocked to be offered a same day appointment and the person I spoke to was INCREDIBLY nice. I read that they did payment plans and they had great reviews so I figured, well I’m desperate so I’ll give it a try. The clinic was only a short drive for me and when I got there I didn’t know what to expect. The lobby was nice and the staff were welcoming. The online registration was easy and when I got lead back to meet the dentist I was really appreciative of how incredibly kind and sweet she was. I explained to her my history and I was treated with the utmost respect and understanding. I didn’t feel judged at all. For patients without insurance in the aftermath of a pandemic and job losses and insurance cancellations; it meant the world to me to not feel shamed. This was the absolute best experience I’ve ever had and I will be back and will definitely highly recommend them. Thank you Ace for the compassion!!"- A.M. / Google / Aug 21, 2021

Are You a Candidate for Dentures?
Suitable candidates for receiving dentures could be patients who are missing multiple teeth or are going to have teeth extracted. Dentures serve to improve your dental abilities, let you eat healthy foods, and help sustain your facial volume. These pieces work well if the gums are healthy and there is an adequate amount of bone to keep them secure. One of our knowledgeable general dentists will evaluate your mouth and go over your potential treatments based on your requirements, maintenance preferences, and wallet. After this, a member of our team will help you decide if dentures are right for your oral health and which kind could best fit your unique situation.
What Is the Denture Process?
One of our professionals will start the restoration process by getting digital or molded impressions of your top and bottom arches. These impressions will then be taken to our partnering dental lab, and from there, they will create your individualized dentures. Full and bridge dentures are made up of lightweight resin, which can be supported by a metal framework. Crafted with high-quality biocompatible substances, dentures should copy the appearance of native teeth and the gumline. Once your appliances are created and are sent to ACE Dental of Cove, we will ask you to return for a fitting. Our dentists will alter your dentures so they fit cozily or attach them to already positioned metal posts. A member of our team will also go over the appropriate techniques to care for your brand new dentures.
Caring for Your Tooth Replacement
Returning to your normal tasks, like chewing and talking easily, may require a few weeks; this is normal, and they will feel more natural over time. If your dentures are too loose, please get in touch with ACE Dental of Cove so our team can set up an alteration follow-up appointment. You should look after your dentures by brushing them gently after each meal and keeping them in water nightly to keep them from becoming too dry. We urge you to visit our facility for routine assessments so a member of our experienced dental team can check the condition of your restorations and your total dental wellness for several years in the future.
Are Dentures Covered by Insurance?
Full or partial dentures may be paid for to some degree by many insurance plans. Our facility will get in touch with your insurance company to learn about your extent of your coverage, and once we do this, we will inform you of your extra costs. Throughout your visit with one of our dentists, they will personalize your procedure plan so your restorations fit both your goals and wallet. To help make the denture process accessible, ACE Dental of Cove accepts many types of payments, like flexible payment plans.
