Full and Partial Dentures

Dentures are a restorative dentistry treatment that are custom-made removable dental devices used to replace missing teeth. Aside from the health and cosmetic benefits of dentures, they also make it easier for you to eat and talk.

There are two types of dentures: partial and full. Partial dentures are used when there are still natural teeth, while full dentures are used when all teeth are missing or need to be replaced. Full dentures are can either be conventional or immediate. Conventional dentures are placed after the gum tissues have completely healed after teeth extraction. Immediate dentures, on the other hand, are placed immediately after the remaining teeth are removed. Whatever type of denture you may need, we at Napa Valley Dental Group can surely help bring back your smile.

The Process

Getting dentures will typically require at least two appointments at our office here in Napa, California.

  • During your first visit, your dentist will get an impression of your mouth. Using dental putty, your dentist will make a mold or model of your mouth and teeth so that they can have your dentures created specifically to suit your mouth.
  • Your dentist will also discuss your options for your dentures. Since dentures are made from different kinds of materials, your dentist can help you choose which type best suits you.
  • Your dental impressions are then sent to a laboratory where the actual dentures are made. You will then be given a schedule for your second visit. Generally, it would take a week for your dentures to be ready.
  • On your second visit, your dentist will fit your dentures. During this time, the dentist will check the fit and color of your dentures to make sure it matches with the rest of your natural teeth. You may feel some minor discomfort at the start but will subside after a few days.

New dentures may feel uncomfortable during the first week, but you will get accustomed to it. Your dentist may schedule you for a follow-up appointment after the dentures have been inserted to check their fit and function.

Do you have missing teeth? Consider dentures as an option. It not only helps you speak and eat properly, but it also boosts your self-esteem.

Excellent care and wonderful front of house staff which makes such a difference. 5 stars! We were very happy with the dental work out son received in a caring and warm atmosphere.


I’ve never experienced a friendlier, more organized, more effecient group of professionals in ANY medically focused office of any sort. If your appointment is at 10:00, expect to be called in no later than 10:01..

The price was right the staff was above and beyond. I also had a beautiful doctor Kumar taking care of me do it was s very pleasant experience. She did the tooth extraction flawlessly and I’m a big man with big teeth. I had read reviews before I chose this dentist and the 5 stars in my opinion aren’t enough. They have a repeat customer and after a couple of disappointments it’s nice to be able to say that. Thank you Yuvika and staff.

I have the good fortune of having Dr. Bhullar as my dentist in Napa, Ca. He has taken care of my entire family, even putting my daughter through braces. He has done Root canals and Crowns, fixed broken teeth, you name it. We trust his work and his advice completely, and all his work has been outstanding. Dr. Bhullar takes time to explain all the procedures. He explains all the pros and cons of the treatment so that I can make an independent judgment.His staff is also extremely helpful! From the moment, you walk in the door, you sense this is no ordinary dental office (Thank You Laura) for your patience and help in explaining everything. You guys are the BEST!

Honestly I’ve always been extremely skeptical of dental appointments and have had a few bad experiences, but I could not be more relieved when leaving my appointment today. I definitely felt “”taken care of”” by the quality of care I received as well as their extension of help in multiple aspects of what I needed.Very pleased and again, relieved
