Are missing teeth affecting your ability to chew and speak? Are you hiding your smile from the world?

Dentures are natural-looking restorations that will allow you to smile confidently again.

Dr. Art Carpenter in Kenilworth, IL, can fit you for dentures to fill the gaps in your smile and restore its function.

The Types of Dentures Our Kenilworth Practice Offers

Our Kenilworth, IL, office offers three types of dentures: full dentures, partial dentures, and implant-supported dentures. All three dental restorations are made to look and function like your natural teeth, giving you a lifelike, beautiful smile. You will meet with our dentist before placement to determine which dental restoration will best suit your needs.

Complete Dentures

Complete dentures replace an entire arch of missing teeth. They can replace your lower arch, upper arch, or both. Complete dentures can be placed after your gums have healed from any necessary extractions. Once healed, your complete dentures will be customized to look and function as naturally as possible.

Partial dentures

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are best for patients who are missing several teeth but still have healthy teeth remaining. The partial denture is secured in place with a wire clasp that fits around your surrounding healthy teeth. Once the denture is in place, Dr. Carpenter will review your bite to ensure they fit properly.

Implant denture

Implant-Supported Dentures

As the name suggests, implant-supported dentures are held in place by dental implants. Dental implants are small, titanium posts surgically placed into your jawbone to provide a sturdy base for dental restorations like dentures. Dental implants mimic the function of tooth roots so they can prevent severe oral health issues like bone atrophy. This form of denture is considered the most secure.

What To Expect When Receiving Dentures

Dentures will enhance the look and function of your smile and boost your confidence.
Dentures will enhance the look and function of your smile and boost your confidence.


You will first meet with our dentist at our Kenilworth, IL, location. At this appointment, he will review your oral health and aesthetic goals to create a customized treatment plan that will best suit your needs.


Once you and our dentist have determined which denture will be best for you, any necessary dental procedures like tooth extraction will need to be performed before the dentures can be placed.


If you decide implant-supported dentures are the best option, your implants will need to be surgically placed before your customized dentures can be secured.


Once the necessary tooth extraction or other preparatory procedures have been completed, our dentist will take an impression of your gums and any remaining teeth to ensure the dentures will have the best possible fit.


Your impressions will be sent to one of our trusted labs to fabricate restorations that look and function just like your natural teeth.


Once your dentures are created, your dentist will ensure proper fit and make any necessary final adjustments. You'll be able to leave our office smiling with pride.

How To Care For Your New Restorations

Implant-supported dentures cannot be removed, and should be cared for just like your natural teeth. Routine brushing, flossing, and dental visits will keep your implant-supported dentures healthy. 

For removable dentures, a different care routine should be followed.


You should rinse your dentures after every meal to remove any remaining food particles. Food left sitting on your dentures can cause bacteria to grow and shorten the lifespan of your restorations.


You should brush your dentures at least once a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive paste. Abrasive cleaning can damage the surface of your dentures and shorten their lifespan.


You should soak your dentures in water or denture cleaner overnight while you sleep. Allowing your restorations to dry out will make them lose their shape, altering how they fit in your mouth.


You should come to our dental office if you are noticing your dentures are loose, slipping while you eat, or are popping or clicking. We can adjust the fit of your dentures to ensure they are functioning properly.

What Is the Cost Of Dentures?

The cost of your treatment depends on the type of dentures you receive and the extent of preparation you need before those dentures can be placed. For example, patients that want dentures supported by implants will have more costs associated with their treatment plan than those who just need a partial denture.

Our Kenilworth, IL, office offers CareCredit® financing to help all our patients receive the care they need by breaking down the total cost into manageable, monthly payments. Our front desk staff would be happy to talk with you about the cost and your payment options before you receive your restorations.

"We have been coming to Dr. Carpenter for several years now after seeing dentists that lacked good patient relationships. Dr. Carpenter is patient with those who fear going to the dentist (that's me), explains what needs to be done and provides different options for treatment. Worth the trek from the city!"
