Drs. Craighead and Parra are prosthodontists, which is the dental speciality of aesthetic teeth replacement and restoration. They have extensively trained in the design, fabrication and fitting of well-functioning and attractive full and partial dentures. Between them, they have over 30 years of experience creating dentures.
Your treatment starts with full diagnostics: a 3D scan of your mouth and jaw structure, digital X-rays and digital impressions with which they make models.
To ensure dentures fit correctly and are comfortable for the patient, Drs. Parra and Craighead capture comprehensive data on the patient’s smile and lip line, speech patterns, jaw measurements and bite. They spend a lot of time mapping the gums where the denture will sit with special impression material so that they get an exact impression for their lab to work with.
There is no room for error if you are going to have comfortable dentures that do their job painlessly. As prosthodontists with three additional years of training, and many years of experience, Drs. Craighead and Parra have the skill to get your fit right.
Drs. Craighead and Parra work with the patient to select the right color, shape and size of teeth. They have patients bring in photos of how they would like their smile to look. They do try-ins with the new dentures, take photos and get continuous feedback from the patient until he or she is completely satisfied.
The doctors make your dentures from a high-grade acrylic that is a lot stronger and more aesthetic than normal denture material. They make the dentures very realistic by using six to eight different layers of tooth colors and translucency.
This creates a harmonious interplay of translucency, opalescence (showing various colors like an opal) and brightness—just like natural teeth.
Drs. Parra and Craighead use dental labs and master ceramists trained in functional occlusion (how the teeth align and come together when chewing), which enables them to fabricate dentures that can withstand very strong chewing forces.
There’s a flat fee for your dentures, no matter how many changes you make. We also provide a Satisfaction Guarantee and you can bring back your dentures for further alterations, at no extra cost.
We have affordable financing options and our treatment coordinator can help you file any insurance claim.
“I was placed on a BiPAP machine for sleep apnea. Little did I know it would
cause my dry mouth and rot my teeth. I got a few estimates—Premier Dental was not the cheapest, but the staff and doctors made it an easy decision to make.
“The staff did a fantastic job on restoring my smile. I am no longer embarrassed about my smile. Thanks again.”
Drs. Craighead and Parra have the training and skill to give you a comfortable experience and the best possible treatment.
