Dentures With Gentle Dental

Dentures are an excellent solution for missing teeth and teeth with extensive damage – they’re strong, reliable, and can be custom fit for anyone! Dentures are used for more than just looks: they’ll also fully restore the functionality of your teeth and mouth. If you’re interested in getting dentures, don’t hesitate to contact us at one of our offices in South Portland, Biddeford, or Topsham!

The Dentures Process

At Gentle Dental, we guarantee that your custom-made dentures will match the look and feel of your natural teeth! The process of getting your dentures starts with an oral examination, where our team of dentists will help you determine if dentures are the right restorative dentistry solution for you. Once it’s been decided that dentures are the right option for you, our team of dentists will measure and take molds of your teeth so we can begin creating your custom-fit dentures. At your next appointment, we’ll ensure that your custom dentures are a perfect fit and that you’ll be able to use them without any issues. If necessary, we can always make adjustments! Your dentures may take a few weeks to get used to, as they can be a bit uncomfortable at first when eating and speaking. Once you’re used to your new dentures, your ability to chew, speak, and smile will be as good as new!

Taking Care Of Your Dentures

Just like with natural teeth, oral hygiene is extremely important with dentures. Even without natural teeth, your gums can still develop problems if they’re not regularly cleaned. You should gently brush your gums twice daily with toothpaste. The dentures themselves should also be cleaned regularly, either by brushing them with toothpaste or by using a denture cleaning solution. If your dentures have been damaged or need repair in any way, you should contact us immediately!


Oral Cancer Screening

Our dental team is the first line in defensive to address oral cancer. Oral cancer screening is a necessary and preventative step that is critical to one’s overall health.


While brushing and flossing are the two most important factors to prevent cavities, we offer dental sealants which protects your teeth from the harmful bacteria that cause cavities. Sealant is a completely painless procedure that only takes a few minutes.

Real Clients, Real Stories

This was my first cleaning in 3-4 years… and it was honestly way less stressful then I had hyped it up to be in my head. After calling around to different dental offices, Gentle Dental was one of the only options I found to accept my insurance so I called and made an appointment. I arrived and waited only 5 minutes to be called in. Christine did my cleaning and was so thorough and calming, she explained everything as she went and periodically checked in to make sure I was doing okay. After X-rays, an in depth evaluation, cleaning, and check in with Dr Sun, I was in and out in just a little over an hour. Quick and painless. Highly recommend Gentle Dental!
