Dentures, Tustin, California
A gummy, incomplete smile can add years to your face while making eating or speaking more difficult than it should. At Gold Coast Dental Tustin, we can help you restore the natural beauty and function of your full smile with dentures! Dentures are no longer what your grandparents used to wear—they’re comfortable, well-fitting, and best of all look incredible! Dentures offer a great number of fantastic benefits: beautiful, younger smile, better confidence and self-esteem, improved speech, restored diet, and flexible to your smile’s needs. Our Tustin dentists create your dentures with an attentiveness our patients can appreciate.
We want you to fall in love with your new teeth, so we take both the false teeth and supporting base into account in our designs to look as natural as possible. The porcelain teeth are matched to the pearly white shade of natural enamel, and the base is made of a gum-pink acrylic that allows your full denture to beautifully mimic your original smile. Bring back the vitality of your smile and start your new life with dentures! Contact our Tustin dental office at (714) 795-3865 today to schedule an appointment with our talented dental team.
Our Tustin dentists allow you to replace your missing teeth exactly as you need and on your terms with our removable denture options.
Extremely flexible to the specific demands of your smile, removable partial dentures can replace anything less than a full arch of extracted teeth. This prosthetic sits its base at the back of your strong remaining teeth while allowing your new teeth to slide smoothly in place. For added security, your denture dentist can also install metal clasps to firmly attach to your natural teeth.
Complete, or full, dentures are what most of our patients picture when they hear us mention dentures. These prosthetics are used to replace an entire arch or smile of missing teeth. Rather than anchoring themselves to your natural teeth, full dentures fit directly onto your gums with a comfortable tightness that keeps them solidly in place without denture adhesive or glue.
Why wait the weeks it takes for your final dentures to be made when you don’t have to? With immediate dentures, your dentist will prepare your set of either partial or complete dentures using molds and impressions of your mouth taken weeks in advance. This ensures you’ll have your false teeth ready by the time of your tooth extraction, and you’ll be able to walk out of our office the same day with a brand new smile.

What Makes A Good Denture Candidate?
The qualifications for a proper denture candidate are simple and easy to meet
To be a great candidate for one of our Tustin office’s dentures, you should be: missing multiple teeth, or have healthy gum tissue and sufficient jawbone structure. Depending on the number of missing teeth you have, the type of denture you need will differ. Patients missing only a few teeth are great candidates for partials, while those missing a whole arch or mouth of teeth should instead look into complete dentures. Your remaining natural teeth should be strong and healthy enough to support your false teeth.
For patients missing a complete arch or mouth of teeth, you are a better candidate for full dentures. If you are only missing 1 or 2 teeth, a dental bridge or implant may be a better dental prosthetic choice. Patients looking into a denture with implants have an additional requirement above traditional dentures. Candidates must have enough bone to support the implants, which are surgically attached and fused to the jaw. The missing jaw bone can be replaced with a bone graft to make you a perfect candidate for implant dentures.
Can dentures look natural?
Gone are the days when you had to worry about your friends or families seeing any “tells” of your dentures! Our cosmetic dentists have their hands in the design of your new teeth to ensure that they look and feel just like real enamel. We’re also considerate of your specific goals with your smile, so we do our best to follow any requests or conditions you may have for your prosthetic.
Can you wear dentures 24/7?
Unless you have a fixed All-on-4 denture implant, you should not wear your dentures 24/7. Your gums and jaw need some time to rest and recuperate from the day’s pressures. By taking out your dentures at night, you can prevent soreness and reduce bone loss that eventually occurs over time. This allows your dentures to last longer, fitting better without the need for adhesive or denture repair.
What's the difference between immediate dentures and permanent dentures?
Immediate dentures are only temporary, meant for the first 3 or 4 months following your dental extraction. Your mouth will go through a lot of change as your jaw and gums will shift, meaning your dentures won’t fit as nicely as they did before. Permanent dentures, however, are long term teeth replacements that attach securely to implants surgically rooted to your jaw. These implant dentures have a lifespan of 10 or 20 years longer than even the best traditional dentures.
What do dentures cost?
The cost of your dentures depends on a variety of factors. How many teeth will we be replacing? What materials will be used? What type of dentures will you get? If you are receiving immediate dentures, the cost of the extractions may be included as well. If you have any questions or concerns about your final cost, please check out our office’s financing options or call us at (714) 795-3865 to schedule a financial consultation.
What can you not eat with dentures?
While dentures can open up your palate to a wide range of tasty foods, there are some treats that aren’t very denture-friendly. Popcorn can get kernels stuck between the bottom of your dentures and your gums. Steak can be chewy, and the amount of chewing and pressure needed to get through a ribeye can make your mouth sore or cause your teeth to shift as they’re dislodged. Sticky and syrupy foods can also pop your dentures out of place, as can eating nuts on only one side of your mouth.
How long do you have to wait to get dentures after teeth are pulled?
If you are not receiving immediate dentures, then you will have to wait 6 to 8 weeks after your dental extraction before you can begin wearing your dentures. This allows your mouth time to adjust, and there will be quite a bit of difference in the shape of your jaw and bite. At this point, you can be sure that your new dentures will stay tight and comfortable for years to come.
For the best fit possible, why not check out our denture implants?
For added stability in your bite and speech, our Tustin dentists can offer you permanent dentures, the denture with implants. Implant-supported dentures don’t need denture glue to stay in place but instead use dental implant posts and abutments surgically attached to the jaw. Benefits of implant dentures include: more stable eating and speech, longer-lasting, more even bite,
preserves jaw better against bone loss, greater comfort, and better dental health. While many permanent dentures are still removable, we also have fixed permanent dentures: All-on-4 dental implants. All-on-4 dentures, as their name suggests, replace an arch of missing teeth by attaching a full-mouth denture on 4 dental implants. Your denture will be permanently screwed into your implants
to prevent your false teeth from moving around. Some added advantages of All-on-4 denture implants: lower maintenance and cleaning, non-removable, no sliding or unwanted detaching, and wearable at night.
