Are Patients Who Choose Dentures Happy with Their Results?
Before and After Photos

Before treatment
Before Candy was missing all of the teeth on her upper arch, as well as several teeth on the lower arch. The tooth loss, along with jawbone atrophy, began to contribute to changes in the shape of the jaw and face, contributing to an older appearance.
After treatment
After Our dentists performed an extensive full smile makeover. The upper arch was treated with a Fountain of Youth upper denture. We also placed four implants to secure a partial lower denture in place. The end result was a complete and beautiful smile.
Candy's Testimonial:

"This whole experience of receiving a beautiful smile has been a surreal, life-changing event for me. I no longer have poor self-esteem and suffer from reprisals from others. Since receiving my new smile, I feel like a new person. I now have self-esteem and confidence in my new smile and it shows. When at work or out for leisure, everyone notices my beautiful smile. It captures the attention of others. I would recommend Smiles For Life--Dr. McIntyre and his staff for any and all dental procedures. It's more than just a dental visit."

Types of Dentures

Overall, the most appropriate denture will depend on your restorative goals, budget, and overall oral health. We offer a comprehensive range of dentures at our Harrisonburg area offices to suit many different dentistry needs:
Traditional Full Dentures

Traditional Full Dentures

If you have lost all of your teeth, or require extraction of all remaining teeth, you may be a candidate for complete dentures. These restorations are likely what you picture when you think of dentures. A complete denture can replace the entire upper and lower dental arch. Our partner lab will create your prosthetic with a plastic base that matches the shade of your gums, and the synthetic teeth will have a natural appearance.

Partial dentures

Traditional Partial Dentures

A partial will be recommended if you still have some remaining healthy teeth. A traditional partial denture is similar to a traditional full denture. However, it will only replace part of your dental arch and relies on hidden clasps that connect to your remaining healthy teeth.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-Supported Dentures

We recommend implant-supported dentures for the most stable and realistic results possible. Dentures attach to implant posts that are surgically embedded in your jawbone. Dental implants will never allow your denture to slip out of place, and are the only restorative option that can prevent jaw atrophy following tooth loss. They can support full and partial dentures.

Our dentists will evaluate your oral and physical health to determine your candidacy for implant-supported dentures. If your jawbone has started to recede, you may require a bone graft or sinus lift before you can receive implants.

Prettau® Bridge

Prettau® Bridge

This full-arch restoration is made from state-of-the-art zirconia, which is incredibly durable and will not absorb stains or odors. It will attach to five or six implant posts, and your dentist will usually attach it on the same day as your implant surgery. Immediate dentures allow patients to enjoy the benefits of a complete smile right after dental implant surgery.

The Fountain of Youth Denture

The Fountain of Youth Denture

The Fountain of Youth denture is a specially designed prosthetic that will fill in your lips and cheeks, giving you effects similar to a facelift. We can even attach this type of denture to dental implants.

"From beginning to the end of my visits, all levels of the staff are professional and superb. Dr. McIntyre is excellent. He listens to the customer. He picks up on what the customer wants and follows up on it. After my surgery Dr. McIntyre called that evening to check on me, and to answer any further questions. A true caring person and doctor. The best dentistry around. I drove 2 1/2 hours for the best dentist." Eric L.
