Permanent Dentures & Implant Dentures in Centreville, VA

If you’re missing many teeth—or it’s simply the right time—we can consider dentures for you. Do you want traditional dentures that rest on the gums? Or would you like to see a state-of-the-art solution: implant dentures?

Implant-supported dentures replace your teeth with denture appliances that are anchored with dental implants. You can have dental implants placed in your jaw at our office, then have us customize and attach your permanent dentures. We’ll keep you comfortable in our family-friendly office at Centreville Dental Wellness Center, near Fairfax and Chantilly, VA.

Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures

Each denture replaces an arch of teeth. It can be anchored to as few as two implants or as many as six, depending on the patient. Our Centreville patients appreciate them because this type of denture:

  • Lasts a Long Time: Permanent dentures can work for many years without needing adjustments or repairs. Their sturdy implant bases protect them from wear and keep them secure.
  • Won’t Fall Out or Move: Because they are attached securely to implants, these dentures can’t accidentally slip or pop out while you’re eating, speaking, smiling, or doing anything else.
  • Works Like Natural Teeth: Your permanent dentures will look natural and chew every type of food like they’re new teeth. You won’t have to avoid hard, crunchy, sticky foods at all.
  • Strengthens Your Jawbone: When dental implants bond to your jaw, the bone is naturally stimulated to grow. This helps to keep your jaw healthier for years to come, along with sometimes improving facial shape for some patients.

We take care of every part of the dental implant process here at Centreville Dental Wellness Center. We use an advanced CT scanner and surgical guides to precisely place your dental implants. And we can customize your dentures in the right colors and materials to look indistinguishable from real teeth.

Implant Dentures vs. Traditional Dentures

Some patients are happy with their traditional dentures, while others want to quickly switch to implant dentures—or opted out of traditional dentures from the beginning. We want you to choose the option that works for you, so here are some of the main features of each type of denture.

Traditional Dentures in Centreville, VA

Old man with traditional dentures in CentrevilleOur conventional dentures can look great and work well for many patients. They rest on the gums, and they stay in place with dental adhesive and suction. They allow our patients to use a low or moderate bite force on their food. You may need to chew on softer foods than you used to.

Because you are not paying for dental implants, the cost of customizing and placing your dentures may be lower with the traditional type.

Traditional dentures press on your gums, which can be uncomfortable for some patients. This pressure can also wear down the jawbone over time. Since the jawbone is not stimulated to grow, it can deteriorate and lose density, which can make it weaker, along with changing your facial shape.

We’ve noticed that some patients develop a slight lisp or another speech issue with traditional dentures. They also have to take them out every night to give their gums a break and clean their dentures. But, again, many patients use traditional dentures and are happy to have great teeth again.

Implant-Supported Dentures near Fairfax and Chantilly, VA

Implant dentures stay securely in place—just like natural teeth. That’s because they’re attached directly to the jaw through dental implants, which are effectively titanium tooth root replacements. Your implant dentures:

  • Won’t fall out.
  • Don’t slip.
  • Let you chew any type of food.
  • Help strengthen your jawbone.

We can craft them to stay in place as permanent dentures. Or you can choose removable snap-in dentures that come out when you want to take them out for cleaning or sleeping (but that will never come out accidentally).

Because implant-supported dentures involve dental surgery to place two to six implants per arch, they cost more than traditional dentures. We can discuss the specific cost of the surgery and the dentures, adding up your total before we get started.

Am I a Candidate for Implant-Supported Dentures?

Centreville man with implant supported denturesWhen you visit Centreville Dental Wellness Center for a permanent dentures consultation, we’ll check your jawbone density, gum health, general readiness for minor surgery, and more. We’ll use our state-of-the-art CT scanner to model the implant area and find the precise sites for implantation.

If we find that your jaw is too thin in a necessary implant site, we may recommend a bone graft. This is a simple procedure of adding more bone or bone-like material to the jaw. It stimulates the jaw to grow to prepare you for implant surgery.

What Our Patients Say

Dr Rena Vakay and her staff are truly the best. I have been going to the practice for many, many years and their professionalism is over the top. Long before Covid Centreville Dental Wellness has been top gold standard with office cleanliness. Dr Vakay is honest, bright, top rated and the best doctor I've had the pleasure of working with. The office is always in front of all the new technology. I can't say enough about this practice.

Kim M.

Dr Vakay is THE very best dentist ever. She is the only dentist who uses preventive dentistry rather than reactive. My teeth have never been in better condition. She measures my gums to be sure there is no change or recession every time. She also does beautiful cosmetic dentistry. I am proof!!!

Annie C.

Dr. Vakay and her assistant Christina are true artists. Their cosmetic dentistry skills are top notch. They made 5 new crowns for my upper front teeth and they look and feel beautiful and healthy. They were a pleasure to work with. When I brought to their attention that the color was a little brighter than I had anticipated, they offered to bleach my bottom teeth a second time (at no cost to me). That's true customer service.

Mary S.

I have been coming to Centreville Dental Wellness for 11 years, first to Dr. Judith Thomas and after she retired, to Dr. Jason Abel. My experience here has always been top notch and the entire office staff are professional and informed. I have had a variety of procedures and the office is good at getting me in on short notice, keeping me apprised of financial costs based on what my insurance will or will not cover, and making what could be a stressful time far less so. I highly recommend this practice across the board.

Louise M.

The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and I have never waited more that 5 minutes to get in and seen by either the hygienist or Dr. Vakay. The teeth cleaning is the best I have ever had hands down! My teeth feel and look amazing after having a cleaning at Centreville Dental Wellness Center.

Colleen M.

Dr. Vakay's office is Very friendly, detailed and efficient with their dental care! Old school patient service that doesn't exist any more . She is a "diamond ", shiny star!

Jason Y.

I have been going to Centreville Wellness for over 20 years. First went there by chance (there was no Yelp at the time), but have continued to go based on quality of work, price and customer service. They have certainly made changes to their practice since I first started going there; all of which were good. Dr. Vakay knows whats going on and how to take care of her patients.

Rob M.

Our family has been going to this dental practice for years, even before Dr. Vakay and Dr. Abel were there. We stayed through the transition because of the wonderful care we received. Everyone of the staff with whom I have interacted have not only been great at their jobs, but cheerful, friendly and kind. I trust both doctors. They combine new technology and treatment with old-fashioned, personal care. I highly recommend the practice.
