Let Our Warren Dentist Restore Your Smile
Warren Family Dentistry offers customized full and partial dentures for patients looking to restore the appearance of their smile and get their oral health back on track. By finding an affordable solution to tooth loss, you’ll be able to regain your sense of self-confidence and feel better overall. Our Warren, MI dentist, Dr. Chirco, will work with you every step of the way, ensuring you achieve your smile goals and leave in better oral health than when you arrived.
What Are Dentures?
Dentures are removable prosthetic appliances designed to appear just like natural teeth. No matter how many teeth you’re missing, dentures are an excellent restoration that’s affordable, reliable, and natural-looking. Our Warren dental team will create your denture restoration using an acrylic resin and craft them with your smile goals in mind.
At Warren Family Dentistry, our restorative dentist provides patients with two types of dentures:
Partial dentures are designed to replace multiple teeth on either the upper or lower arch. They’re held in place by an inconspicuous metal clasp and are easily removable for cleaning and maintenance. With a partial denture, your remaining teeth won’t shift out of their proper positions and you can achieve great oral health.
Full dentures replace an entire arch of missing teeth, restoring your smile to full function. Also known as complete dentures, they’re removable and simple to reattach.
Are Dentures Right For You?
Dentures are a great option for patients who may be missing just a few teeth or all of them. This affordable tooth replacement option can dramatically improve your quality of life if you:
- Have lost most or all of your teeth
- Want to eat with greater ease
- Want to speak with accuracy
- Desire a natural-looking smile after tooth loss

Receiving Dentures at Warren Family Dentistry
The process of receiving your dentures takes two appointments at our Warren dental office. Depending on the status of your oral health, a denture treatment can take between two weeks and one month to complete.
You’ll begin with an initial consultation with Dr. Chirco. She’ll evaluate your oral health to determine if dentures are the best restorative treatment. Then, she’ll take digital impressions of your mouth to create your custom restoration. To ensure your denture restoration will be a perfect fit, she may ask that you come in for several “try-on” appointments.
Once your dentures are created, you’ll come back to our Warren dental office where she’ll place and adjust your restoration to ensure a comfortable fit and natural appearance.
When caring for your dentures, it’s crucial to understand the proper way to clean and store them to ensure they last long and function right. At your appointment, Dr. Chirco and our team can provide you with maintenance instructions to keep them clean and free from stains.
Here are some tips:
- Remove and rinse your dentures with water after eating
- Avoid bending or damaging the clasps when cleaning
- Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to clean your natural teeth and gums
- Remove and clean your dentures daily with a non-abrasive cleaner
- Soak your restoration in water or denture solution overnight to maintain their shape
- Frequently visit our Warren dental office for regular dental cleanings and checkups
