Missing and severely damaged teeth not only compromise the beauty of your smile, they can also make it uncomfortable to eat, chew, and smile with confidence. Fortunately, thanks in part to the advances and progressive techniques of dental technology, Dr. Thomas Zarger offers his patients stunning, natural-looking dentures in Knoxville, TN.

With a fully restored set of teeth, patients can regain their confidence, enjoy foods that may have previously been difficult to eat, and show off their brilliant smiles to friends and family.

Your Denture Options

Whether you are missing several teeth, the majority of your teeth, or all your teeth, we have the denture to help you achieve your goals.

We offer a variety of dentures to meet diverse patient needs as well as accommodate varying budgets. During your consultation, Dr. Zarger will discuss your concerns, goals, and budget, and help you determine which of the following options is right for you:

Traditional Full Dentures: When patients are in need of a full arch replacement, either on the top arch, bottom arch, or both, a full denture will restore both beauty and functionality. Our custom, lab-crafted dentures are made of gum-colored plastic and prosthetic teeth. The dentures can be secured using an adhesive material.

Traditional Partial Dentures: Large gaps left by a series of missing teeth can be remedied by clipping a denture to adjacent teeth. The metal base provides stability and functionality, and is a more affordable option than dental implants.

Fixed Partial Dentures: If surrounding teeth lack the structure to support a traditional partial denture, dental crowns may be placed over the adjacent teeth. The denture can then be securely attached to the crown, serving as a bridge to fill empty spaces and gaps in your smile.

With a fully restored set of teeth, patients can regain their confidence, enjoy foods that may have previously been difficult to eat, and show off their brilliant smiles to friends and family.

Implant-supported Dentures: Small titanium posts called dental implants can be placed directly into the jawbone, serving as tooth-root replacements. Once implants are placed and have fused to the jaw, a denture can be firmly attached to an abutment piece on the implant. This option provides the most stable, secure, and durable solution for patients seeking permanent replacement of missing teeth.
