Dentures – Juno Beach, FL

Complete Restore Your Smile After Advanced Tooth Loss

full set of dentures Multiple missing teeth can be a real burden for both your smile’s appearance and function, but fortunately, full and partial dentures can provide an effective, natural-looking, and cost-effective solution. Dentures, in one form or another, have been used for generations, and with the latest advancements in dental prosthetics, modern-day dentures are now smaller, sleeker, and more comfortable than ever. Whether you are missing a few teeth or a complete row, they could be exactly what you need to get your complete smile back.

What Are Dentures?

Dentures can be used to restore multiple missing teeth in order to revitalize the smile’s appearance as well as improve a person’s eating and speaking ability. They are made of prosthetic teeth attached to a realistic-looking gum-colored acrylic base, and they come in three main types:

What Are the Benefits of Dentures?

Traditional, non-implant dentures offer numerous benefits:

Implant-retained dentures offer even greater benefits. For example, they can last for well over a decade, and their stability enables you to chew virtually any food without taking special precautions.


If you’re looking to rebuild your smile, the first step is to schedule an appointment here at Juno Beach Smiles. Dr. Greg Riley or Dr. Duane Keuning will perform a short oral exam, and then they’ll discuss our multiple tooth replacement options. If you both decide that removable dentures are the best one for you, they can then start the process of creating your prosthetic.

Typically, it takes a few appointments spaced out over the course of a few weeks to get your final denture. This is because, during these appointments, your doctor will create a series of mock-up models for you to try on so you can determine the perfect look and fit for you. After you have found the model that suits you the best, it will be sent to a local dental lab to fabricate your final dentures. You’ll then return to Juno Beach Smiles where your dentist will fit them, make any final adjustments if necessary, and then talk to you about using and maintaining them.


It will take a little time for your mouth to adjust to your new denture, so a bit of tenderness at the beginning is normal. Try to wear them as much as you can, only taking them out when you go to bed. While you are still learning to eat with them, try to stick to softer, easier to chew foods at first and gradually work your way back up to your normal diet. To help you learn to speak with them, try reading out loud every day until it feels comfortable. After a while, they’ll feel just like your regular teeth.

As far as maintenance goes, you should clean your dentures as often as you clean your teeth/mouth. Don’t use a hard-bristled brush or regular toothpaste on your dentures as this can damage them. Your dentist will let you know which products are safe to use. At the end of the day, you will need to take them out and soak them in a denture solution overnight. Be sure to rinse them off before you put them back in your mouth!

Understanding the Cost of Dentures

Dentures are one of the most traditional tooth-replacement solutions for missing teeth. Not only can they improve your appearance, but they allow you to enjoy a complete bite once again. Of course, you likely want to know how much they’ll cost before moving forward with the process. Since every case is unique, it’s impossible to give an accurate price estimate until you come in for an exam. During your consultation, we’ll explain which factors influence the overall cost of dentures in Juno Beach and what you can expect for your specific situation.

Factors that Affect the Cost of Dentures

The cost of dentures in Juno Beach depends on a few factors, including:

  • Whether you require a full or partial denture
  • How many teeth must be replaced
  • Whether you are receiving a traditional or implant-supported denture
  • Whether you require any preliminary treatment, such as extractions
  • The materials used to construct your denture

Patients on a budget may be tempted to get more affordable dentures. However, it’s important to remember that cheaper isn’t always better. These oral appliances are usually made from materials that break easily, meaning you’ll require a replacement much sooner than anticipated. For something that’s going in your mouth and will be used every day, it’s always best to invest in something long-lasting.  

Are Implant Dentures More Expensive?

Yes, but there’s a very good reason for that. Implant dentures require oral surgery and the placement of multiple dental implants. As a result, they’re far more reliable for day-to-day use because they will stay firmly in place. Dental implants also help stimulate the jawbone, providing increased biting strength and longevity. Unlike traditional dentures, you won’t have to worry about replacing them every few years because implants can last decades with proper maintenance.

Does Dental Insurance Cover Dentures?

Most dental insurance plans offer some level of coverage for dentures in Juno Beach because they’re considered a major procedure. In most cases, you can expect to receive up to 50% of coverage. Of course, the exact percentage will vary from plan to plan. Before committing to anything, you should confirm the details of your coverage with your insurance provider. Our dental team is more than happy to assist with this process if needed!

Other Options for Making Dentures Affordable

Don’t have dental insurance? No problem! We offer additional financing options to help make your treatment as affordable as possible. Some of those include:

  • In-House Savings Plan – For a reasonable annual or monthly fee, you can get all the care you need without having to break the bank. This plan allows you to enjoy the benefits of traditional insurance without the hassle of deductibles, waiting periods, and claim forms.
  • CareCredit Financing – With this option, you can split up the total cost of your treatment into smaller monthly installments. Best of all, most payment plans come with little-to-no interest to help you save even more money.

Dentures FAQs

Are you ready to rebuild your smile with dentures? Your new prosthetic has the potential to boost your confidence, broaden your dietary options, and help you enjoy an improved daily quality of life. However, you may still have some questions about dentures that you would like to have answered before you schedule your consultation with us. That is why we have compiled the following list of FAQs. If you do not see the information you were hoping for, you are welcome to contact us directly so we can personally assist you.

How Long Do Dentures Last?

After you lose your natural teeth, your jawbone will change shape, and eventually, the changes will reach the point where relining (adjusting) the denture will no longer help it fit well. That is why a non-implant full denture may last for 5 – 8 years. A partial denture may last for 10 years or so before replacement becomes necessary. An implant-retained denture prevents changes to the jawbone and may therefore last for decades.

Are There Any Foods I Should Avoid with Dentures?

Traditional, non-implant dentures can enable you to eat a wide variety of foods. However, it is best to say no to extremely sticky foods because they could dislodge your denture. Foods with little seeds or other small, hard parts are also something to be cautious around. Those tiny particles could sneak beneath your prosthetic and irritate your gums. When you are eating tough foods, such as steak or raw vegetables, it is best to cut them before you put them in your mouth, then chew them evenly on both sides. Implant-retained dentures offer greater stability and require fewer precautions when you are eating.

What Should I Do if My Dentures Feel Loose?

A loose denture probably needs to be relined. However, it is also possible that your prosthetic has been damaged. Do not try to repair your denture by yourself, and do not wear a damaged denture. Contact us and describe your situation. We’ll do our best to solve the problem as quickly as possible so you can get back to enjoying your prosthetic.

How Soon After Extractions Can I Get Dentures?

The answer to this question depends on your unique circumstances. Some patients qualify for an immediate, temporary denture on the same day as their extractions. While this presents an extra cost, many people feel that the aesthetic advantages are worth it. Other individuals wait 6 weeks or longer before getting dentures so their gums have adequate time to heal.  Your dentist will talk to you about all of your denture options when you visit us for your consultation.


If you’re ready to say goodbye to the gaps in your smile, dentures are one of the most reliable ways to do it. To learn more about dentures and see if they are right for you, please contact us today for an appointment.
