For thousands of years, humans have been creating prosthetic teeth to replace their lost teeth. While wood and bone devices were crude in comparison to modern options, dentures in some form have been used for centuries. Partial and complete dentures can replace multiple teeth or both arches to achieve a completed smile. At Topsfield Smiles, we are happy to help our patients with missing teeth enjoy the benefits of restorative dentistry. We offer beautiful, modern dentures for smile restorations.
Complete dentures are an affordable option to replace both arches of teeth. The top arch includes a full set of teeth that is attached to a palate that covers the roof of the mouth. The bottom arch has a full set of teeth on a plastic base that fits comfortably on the gums. Once fitted to healed gums, dentures use suction to stay in place. Adhesive can also be used to reduce risk of slipping and to seal the dentures to the gum tissue.
New dental technology has improved the design, function, appearance and comfort of complete dentures. Our restorative dentists can create a gorgeous new smile that looks and functions naturally. After an initial adjustment period, most of our patients love their new smile that is possible with complete dentures. For many people, dentures help restore their self-confidence and improve their quality of life.
When you have multiple teeth missing but still have many of your natural teeth, partial dentures can be a wonderful option. Partial dentures have a metal cage that fits around existing teeth to hold the prosthetic teeth in place. The partial denture is color-matched to your teeth to create a natural appearance. Partial dentures are an affordable option compared to dental implants or bridges and can fit most people’s budget.
Everyone deserves to have a complete smile. If you have lost some or most of your teeth, dentures can give you back your beautiful smile.

Get your smile back
- Smile aesthetics are based on the appearance of the teeth. Dentures replace missing teeth and allow you to smile with renewed confidence.
- The mouth’s structure will begin to collapse when too many teeth are missing. Dentures will restore support for the gums and jaw.
- You can remove dentures for cleaning or during the night to avoid grinding. This is not possible with permanent attachments such as implants.
- Patients can benefit from partial or full dentures, depending on how many teeth are missing. Replacing these teeth promotes better oral health.
