Missing teeth take a toll on your smile, your facial structure, and your ability to speak and eat.

Advanced dentures from a skilled dentist can provide a natural-looking smile and restored function and comfort.

So why should you choose Delany Dental Care in Gurnee, IL, to provide your dentures?

The Benefits

Youthful Appearance

Missing teeth can make your smile unsightly and give your face an aged, sunken look. Dentures can replicate the appearance of natural teeth for a pleasant, inviting smile, and implant-supported dentures help the jawbone retain its strength and shape. The restorations crafted by the dentists at our Gurnee office have the potential to take years off of your appearance.

Advanced Function

Today, our dentists can give conventional dentures much more security, so your ability to eat and speak can be restored with a minimized risk of the restoration coming loose at inopportune times. Meanwhile, complete dentures secured by implants offer premium security that is virtually the same as that of natural teeth. We can help determine which option is best for you.

Custom Design

Dentures are a highly customizable dentistry treatment. Our dentists craft new dentures based on each patient's unique needs. We can create partial dentures if you are missing non-adjacent teeth, or full dentures if you are missing a full arch. Also, the number of teeth you are missing and your overall health will determine if you are better suited for implant-supported or conventional dentures.

How Implants Enhance Dentures

Dental implants attach dentures directly to the jawbone for exceptional stability.


full dentures

Full Dentures

Dental technicians precisely craft these restorations based on impressions we take at our office in Gurnee, IL, so they fit comfortably onto the ridge of your jaw. Complete dentures can be placed over some remaining natural teeth. If all teeth are missing, they can be placed over the gums.

Full dentures remain firmly in place thanks to denture adhesive and suction, but are not as secure or durable as implant-supported dentures. 

partial dentures

Partial Dentures

If you are missing multiple non-adjacent teeth, partial dentures can restore your smile with a single prosthetic. Partial dentures are restorations that fit around remaining natural teeth. At our practice in Gurnee, IL, we offer our patients Valplast® flexible partials, which are comfortable, metal-free restorations that do not cover the palate. 

The Valplast partial dentures are notable because they naturally move with your mouth and are precisely shaped to blend seamlessly with the surrounding teeth.

implant-supported dentures

Implant-Supported Dentures

One of the most significant landmarks in modern dentistry is dental implants. At Delany Dental Care in Gurnee, IL, our dentists specialize in placing and restoring dental implants. Unlike other practices that might outsource implant placement, we handle the entire process ourselves at our office.

Dental implants are titanium rods that are surgically placed in the gums to replace tooth roots. Once they are securely fused with the jawbone, implants support restorations like crowns, bridges, and dentures.


The Advantages of Dental Implants

Implant-supported restorations offer numerous advantages over conventional dentures. Most obviously, they are more secure because the implants function like tooth roots and don't allow the restoration to move. This allows patients to eat all of their favorite foods, and to laugh and speak with complete confidence. Also, implant-supported dentures require less adjustment than their traditional counterparts because dental implants prevent the jawbone from the atrophy that leads to changes in shape.

For patients missing a full arch of teeth, we offer All-on-4 dentures, which are full dentures that can be attached to only four dental implants. We also offer snap-on dentures that can be easily attached to dental implants on the same appointment as implant placement. In many cases, patients can enter our Gurnee office with no teeth and leave with a brilliant smile! During your consultation at our office serving Lake County and North Chicago, we will thoroughly and patiently explain the options available to you.

Delany Dental Care has very friendly and welcoming staff, all incredibly easy to work with. The clinic is beautiful and welcoming. Treatment was quick and follow up was excellent. Could not recommend Delany Dental Care enough!

The Cost

At our Gurnee dental practice, new dentures can cost between $2500 and $4000 per arch, depending on the materials used and the extent of the treatment. For any costs that are not covered by insurance, we offer patients financing plans through CareCredit®. Patients who have received dentures from our caring dentists agree that the confidence and improved quality of life they experienced after treatment more than justify the cost.

Choosing to support your restoration with implants involves further cost considerations. The most significant cost factor involved in this option is your choice of provider. Although it is not difficult to find a practice that provides dental implants, it pays to choose a doctor who has the right credentials and a track record of successful outcomes. Although an experienced dentist may charge more than a less experienced practitioner, the added investment can increase the likelihood of results that provide a lifetime of benefits.
