About Denture Repairs
While dental technology is getting incredibly advanced, dentures are still able to develop problems that need to be repaired. Board-certified dentist Dr. Stuart Ross at City Smiles DC (serving patients in the DC Metro area, including Arlington, VA and Bethesda, MD) offers denture repairs. Dr. Ross accepts emergency appointments and he can perform some denture repairs in his office, including re-alignment, tightening, and putting a tooth back into the dentures. More extensive damage, including dentures split in half or dentures damaged beyond repair, will be sent to a dental laboratory and then returned to City Smiles DC. Denture problems can be uncomfortable, unattractive, and limit a patient's ability to talk and chew, so it's important to contact City Smiles DC as soon as possible for denture repairs.

"I had a great experience with Dr. Ross and his Team at City Smiles. I was recommended to Dr. Ross to have 2 crowns done on front teeth that were in bad shape. While my regular Dentist was "ok" for the regular checkups, I was looking for someone that was really among the best in high quality serious dental procedures. Before I get into the results, I want to comment on the professional high end ambiance and service that was there at every step of this experience. Dr. Ross personally took a good amount of time to examine my teeth and fully explain his plan to make my teeth look and work like new again. I was pleased that the both teeth were done in one trip - abiet a 3 hour appointment. The color match is perfect, and Love the idea of lots of big grins and smiles. This truely was a 5 star experience."- M.D. / Google / Jul 23, 2017
"I went to see Dr. Ross on the recommendation of a friend after I had a horrible experience with another dentist. That was over 10 years ago. I've recommended him to several other people who have been happy as well. Friendly, competent staff who treat their patients well! Thanks for all you do to make the experience positive."- J.S. / Yelp / Jul 18, 2017
"Dr. Ross came recommended to me by a friend's family dentist, and I couldn't be happier with the service I receive. Not only do Dr. Ross and his staff make sure you're comfortable and take the time to go over what you're looking for with your dental health/provider, they also go above and beyond to address specific areas of concern. Dr. Ross clearly is incredibly experienced in dentistry and keeps abreast of the latest technology, while also being personally invested in his patients. He provides his professional expertise but also works with you to plan out your care based on your specific needs, priorities, or limitations. Also, I have incredibly sensitive teeth, and his staff checked in every step of the way to make sure I was comfortable and adjusted their approach as necessary. They are so gentle and thorough with cleanings--first cleaning I actually enjoyed! If you are someone who is anxious or had a difficult history with your teeth, or just looking for a great cleaning, I couldn't recommend him/his team more!"- A.G. / Google / May 29, 2017
"My experience with Dr.Ross, Melissa, Jennifer and Tina was great. On my first appointment I came with my 2 yr old because I couldn't find a babysitter in time and everyone was very accommodating. Dr.Ross' wife even played with him while I used the restroom! Wonderful team wonderful service! Also my dental work is amazing, highly recommended."- S.G. / Yelp / May 27, 2017
What to Expect
Patients should contact our office immediately with any problems about their dentures. Our office will work to get the patient in quickly for an examination and consultation. Some repairs can be completed in the office, but larger repairs will be sent to a dental laboratory. The length of time for denture repairs can vary based on the problem, but the dentist will talk to each patient about temporary solutions to maintain the appearance and function of their teeth.
For patients whose dentures are being repaired outside of our office at a dental lab, they will be contacted when their repairs are ready. The repaired dentures will be adjusted for a comfortable fit and natural-looking appearance. Patients may be asked to return for a follow-up appointment to receive more repairs or to have their bite re-adjusted. Patients should continue to care for their dentures as instructed and schedule regular dental exams and cleanings.
The cost of denture repairs will vary based on the extent of the damage, but the dentist will try to give an estimate during the consultation. Our office will work with the patient's dental insurance to determine their maximum coverage and calculate their out-of-pocket expenses. Our office takes several forms of payment and we help patients create affordable payment plants.
