Dentures & PartialsAn Overview
We understand the physical and emotional challenges that come with losing your teeth. Asheville dentist Dr. Shawna Hoffert offers comfortable, life-like restorations for the replacement of missing teeth. She will design a denture that will fit securely and effectively while restoring function and beauty to your smile.
We offer several options for dentures and partials including removable and implant supported prosthetics.
What are Implant Dentures?
Fixed dentures, also called implant dentures, are supported by several strategically placed dental implants. As few as four dental implants may be needed to secure the denture in place, greatly increasing the success rate and satisfaction of the denture.
Benefits of Implant Dentures
- Improved retention, especially for lower dentures
- More comfortable (no adhesives or risk of slipping)
- Improved bone and gum health
- No food or diet restrictions
- Most natural look and feel

Dr Hoffert and her staff are always curteous and helpful. I always feel welcomed and important at their office. When I had a cracked tooth Dr Hoffert was able to create a crown and place it the same day. I would recommend this office to anyone!Diana Hoffert

Dentures & Partials What to Expect
Dentures are custom designed to fit your mouth for optimal comfort and function. Dr. Hoffert helps patients create a denture that not only looks like natural teeth, but fits securely so they may eat and speak with confidence.
If patients choose to receive dental implant secured dentures, Dr. Hoffert and our Red Maple dental care team will help coordinate the surgical phase of treatment. Once implants are placed, the patients may receive a temporary denture while their implants heal and integrate with the bone. Once the implants have securely fused with the jaw, a final dental restoration will be secured to the implants.
