Losing your teeth not only causes difficulty day-to-day with eating and speaking but can also affect your oral health. If you have lost your teeth due to trauma, tooth decay, or gum disease then it is important to find a replacement. If left untreated, it can lead to your remaining teeth shifting and your jawbone deteriorating. This, in turn, can cause further tooth loss and narrow-down your treatment options.
At our office, we offer a range of denture options:
Complete: Your dentist in Gastonia, NC Dr. Pham, begins by taking an impression of the upper and lower arches of your mouth. This mold is then used to create your custom-made denture. We also consider your gum color, bite, and discuss your preferences. The denture is then fitted and adjusted until the ideal function and appearance are met. The end result is a beautiful new set of teeth designed to look and act as your natural teeth did.
Immediate: If your teeth are removed then an “immediate denture” may be recommended. Created from an impression of your mouth, the denture is placed immediately after tooth removal.
Partial: If only a section of your teeth is missing then a partial denture may be the best option. The partial is removable and is held in place by a clasp attached to your natural teeth. Much like a complete denture, the partial is created using impressions and your personal preferences.
Temporary: A StayPlate or temporary denture may be used while your gums and their supporting bones are healing. This partial denture maintains your smile until your permanent solution is ready to be fitted.
Implant support Dentures: Implant-supported dentures are a great service for patients. Implant-supported dentures are a significant step-up from the conventional denture that uses adhesive. Implant-supported dentures are a great option for individuals who are seeking an affordable option to significantly improve their ability to chew and smile. The support of the implant allows the dental fixture to be shaped into a horseshoe, reducing the bulkiness and opening the palate to create more space for the tongue and better ability to taste food. Implant-supported dentures are sturdier and do not require adhesive.
The individual can improve their diet by including fruits, veggies, steaks, corn on the cob, and other foods one would typically have to avoid with traditional dentures. Also, implant-supported dentures significantly improve patients’ confidence to smile and speak.
This type of dentures is removable, and you’ll be able to snap it on and off as many times as needed. This means that cleaning and maintaining the denture is just as easy as a traditional denture.

Hybrid Dentures (All-on-4, All-on-5, All-on-6)
Dental Implants have opened the doors for many more opportunities for dentures. With the placement of a few implants, we can convert some dentures or make a new denture that locks onto the implants. These dentures are called over dentures and they are a substantial improvement over the traditional dentures. Eating efficiency is significantly improved. The bulkiness of the denture can be cut down, since we are not reliant on the tissue and bone as much to retain the denture. Another advantage is that the implants will keep the bone levels stable around them.
Enhanced Smiles has given me a confidence that I haven't had in a long time. They gave me a beautiful smile. I would recommend them to everyone!
My experience with Enhanced Smiles has been very pleasant and calming. Like most people I was a little anxious and unsure of trying the implant route...after meeting with the staff I felt very comfortable. The staff was very professional and offered several suggestions/ direction for my needs. I highly recommend Enhanced Smiles
My experience has been wonderful! From the initial consultation all the way to having my final permanent teeth installed. I will say, there are less expensive options, but my experience is that it is WORTH EVERY PENNY! I have regained confidence in my appearance as well as a much needed boost in my physical health. I would recommend to anyone looking to have an implant procedure
