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.
Denture Repairs Reviews
"The minute you walk in, you are greeted by a friendly courteous staff. My visit was for a denture repair. Dr. Ross explained all of my options for the repair. I opted to have the work done in the office. I carried my denture in and about hour later I wore my denture out. The work was fast and professional. Dr. Ross went to great detail to see that I walked out with a smile, knowing that my denture repair was done right. So five stars for DR. Ross and five stars for the staff."- J.G. / Google / Jul 19, 2018

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.
