Dentures and Partial Dentures in West Village, NY
Affordable Denture Dentist in NYC
Losing teeth can affect your self-confidence along with your oral health, which is why we recommend restoring your tooth as soon as you can. Dentures can help restore your smile while addressing any dental health concerns.
Eating, chewing, and speaking can be more difficult when faced with missing teeth. When you can't properly chew on some of the healthier foods, you miss out on proper nutrition.
When some people picture dentures, they think of old-fashioned, bulky, artificial-looking teeth that are too big for uncomfortable. Dentures in our New York dental office are vastly improved, and they can positively impact your quality of life. Dr. Keith Bracy in our Chelsea dental office can restore your smile by crafting dentures that not only fit perfectly to your facial structure, but they also look natural, too!

What Are Dentures?
Dentures are prosthetic devices that anchor replacement teeth in order to restore missing teeth. Dentures are held in place through suction and are crafted to look like natural teeth and gums. Traditional dentures are removable. There are permanent options in which dentures are bonded to dental implants.
Different patients have different needs. During your initial dental consultation with Dr. Keith Bracy, we will go over your specific needs and your candidacy for our various tooth replacement procedures.
Complete or Total Denture – Dr. Bracy can replace all your teeth with this type of denture. It is still a good treatment option for those that are not candidates for dental implants.
Overdenture or Implant Denture – This type of denture sits on dental implants and does not rely on suction to stay in place. You can finally smile and laugh with confidence, just like real teeth.
Partial Denture – This denture replaces some of your teeth and can be flexible.
Valplast® Denture – Valplast® is a brand name referring to the flexible denture material.
Flipper – A flipper is a temporary denture to replace just one or a few teeth. They are often used after a dental extraction to provide a same-day replacement of a tooth.
Immediate Denture – This denture is fabricated before your failing teeth are extracted and inserted the same day as your extractions. This way, you never go without teeth in your mouth!
Hybrid Denture – This is a more permanent type of denture that is attached to a metal bar.
If you’re considering dentures in New York, NY; we invite you to schedule an exam with our dentist.
Will My Dentures Look Fake?
No! Today’s dentures are natural-looking and can significantly improve your appearance.
Visit our Chelsea, NYC dental office, and let Dr. Bracy know precisely how you would like your denture to look. Your denture will be custom made according to your wishes. You can select the teeth shade and size, or even have slight imperfections in the teeth alignment, so it looks more natural. The color of the acrylic gums can also be customized to your liking.
Dr. Bracy will take the time to make sure you get the denture you deserve! If you have old photos of yourself before you lost your teeth, bring them in. Often, they are helpful when creating a natural-looking denture.
Ill-fitting dentures can shift or fall out, and this can be embarrassing for patients. Dr. Bracy takes the time to ensure that your dentures fit correctly and do not cause pain. When dentures move when you eat or speak, this can create painful sores and general anxiety. Dentures that fit correctly are essential for our patients' self-esteem, ability to eat and speak, and general happiness.
Dr. Bracy works hard to give his New York patients dependable, permanent results.
Can I Secure My Old Dentures with Implants?
Yes. In many cases, just 2-4 dental implants can add stability to your denture so that it will not pop out or slide around.
An implant, much like a tooth root, is a titanium screw placed in your jawbone. Dr. Bracy will add special attachments to the dental implants, so your denture snaps securely and snugly into them. In other cases, it is possible to get rid of your denture entirely and have fixed denture teeth on dental implants.
When you have missing teeth, your jaw bone can shrink and recede. If this happens, adjacent teeth will shift towards the gap, changing your smile and possibly making future orthodontic work necessary. Implant-retained dentures address this issue by replacing the tooth root and anchoring your jaw bone in place. Many patients prefer implant-retained dentures due to their permanent placement. Implant-secured dentures do not shift, move around, or fall out. With proper care and maintenance, our New York patients can expect to enjoy them for 15 years or longer.
Will Medicare Pay for My New Denture?
No. Many senior citizens are very surprised to learn that Medicare does not cover dentures and their dental care. Don’t worry; you do not need dental insurance to see an NYC dentist or have a new denture fabricated.
At Dr. Bracy’s dental office, you can pay for your new denture with CareCredit. CareCredit is a no-interest financing option that many of our patients are eligible for. This allows you to pay an affordable, low monthly payment without any interest. You can also pay with cash, personal check, or any major credit card.
If you have Medicare and no dental insurance, you may also be interested in another option - Dr. Bracy’s Membership Plan. Visit our financial page to see how you can receive preventive dental care like exams, cleanings, and x-rays for a low monthly fee. The membership plan also gives you 20 percent off our regular denture fee.

Are You Ready for a Change?
Without the support of dental implants, your jawbone will gradually recede, which is why many of our patients are interested in implant-supported dentures. If you notice that your dentures are not staying in place, or if you need to reapply adhesives throughout the day, you may need to replace your dentures.
Dr. Bracy can go over your denture options to determine which procedure is the best fit for your lifestyle and budget. If you find that eating your favorite foods is no longer an option, or that missing teeth changes the way you look—we have tooth replacement options that fit your needs.
Whatever your denture needs, we are happy to see you in our NYC dental office. Dr. Bracy can also handle denture repairs and relines. We are located in the West Village and Chelsea area, just blocks away from Flatiron and Union Square. Call us at (212) 390-8399 or use one of the online booking options on this website.
