If you are missing a teeth, removable dentures can be a great solution. 

Making quality dentures is an art. At our dental office, our dentures are made from a plastic resin that is colored to match your gums. Prosthetic teeth are placed in this plastic base to function and look exactly like natural teeth. 

It is extremely important to have properly fitted dentures. At our office, Dr. Dahman meticulously ensures proper fit on the alveolar ridges, taking time to make sure the upper dentures get the extra support needed from the roof of the mouth. This attention to detail makes our dentures extremely stable.
