Dentures South Pasadena, CA

Learn more about dentures that improve South Pasadena residents eating, speaking and smiling.

We need our teeth for three main functions--to speak properly, to process our food thoroughly and to smile confidently in social settings. If you're having a problem with any of these three functions, all of these needs can be met with dentures from Dr. John Chu, D.M.D.Dentures South Pasadena, CA

Dentures were created to provide a simple and inexpensive solution for people who have missing teeth. They are acrylic dental appliances that we custom design to fit over the gums when you have a problem with missing teeth. The denture looks like an actual set of teeth and gums, and in some cases (namely partial dentures) they are attached to a wire to help keep it in place.

South Pasadena dentist Dr. Chu offers four main types of dentures for patients.  

  • Conventional Complete Dentures
  • Immediate Complete Dentures
  • Partial Dentures
  • Overdenture

Make sure to talk to Dr. Chu about which fit is best for you and your oral health.

The process of getting your dentures is simpler than you might think and takes about a month. We start by taking an impression of your mouth and evaluating the shade of your natural teeth.  This helps us make a custom set that is unique to your mouth.  When they're ready, we'll have you come back in to test the fit, and then you're on your way.

Are you nervous about getting dentures? Well, no need to be. Millions of Americans wear partial or complete dentures whether you can spot them or not. Schedule an appointment with our South Pasadena dental office today!
