Custom dentures require additional steps to assure a more natural look. The teeth used for these dentures (IPN Portrait teeth) are more aesthetic, longer wearing, and offer a wider range of shapes, sizes, and tooth shades. Also, the acrylic base material is available in five different hues for a better personal match and a more life-like appearance. The denture teeth are set in a wax base for a try-in appointment so that you (and the dentist) can see how the denture(s) will look before completion. You can make changes to suit you, consistent with your preferences. After you have approved the look of your Custom Dentures, they will be processed with high-impact Lucitone acrylic!

We offer a three year limited warranty. 

Implant Retained Denture Options:

For denture wearers who want to stabilize an exisiting lower denture, traditional implants work best and, since they have a removable/changeable top (abutment), these can be updated at a later date if desired.  We charge $2,400 to place two (2) traditional implants.  The abutments are $275 each including the parts that embed into the denture.  So, the cost is $2,400 + $550 = $2,950.  In most cases existing dentures may be retrofitted and can be used. if this is not the case a new denture will be neccessary and is an additional fee.

Mini implants (small diameter one piece implants) are also available.  We place four (4) mini implants to stabilize a lower denture for $1,950 (which includes adding the retainers in an existing denture).  The exisiting denture in most cases can be used immediately.  For upper dentures we charge $2,250 to place 6 (six) mini implants.  An existing denture can be worn immediately, but we wait 3 months to add the attachments to allow the upper implants to integrate (heal completely).


Acrylic partial dentures are the least expensive option. The Economy partial has an acrylic base (like a denture) upon which the teeth are set and is attached to natural teeth with small stainless metal clasps.

We offer a 6 month limited warranty.

Cast metal partial dentures are stronger, less bulky and, generally, fit better. Cast partials are made using a cast metal framework to which the laboratory will attach denture teeth. These partials take two to three weeks to make since our special metal framework is made by an outside laboratory.

We offer a two year limited warranty.
