Dentures & Partial Dentures

Full and Partial Dentures in Arlington

Adjusting to life after tooth loss is a frustrating challenge faced by many people. The Dental Office at River House offers patients a variety of tooth replacement options to help restore their smiles to full function and beauty. 

David P. Cote, DDS, has experience creating partial dentures, full dentures, and implant-supported dentures. Patients from Arlington and the surrounding areas come to him for realistic prosthetic teeth to restore both form and function. Dr. Cote upholds a high standard of care by choosing denture materials carefully.  

Many Options for Individualized Care 

When creating a restoration, Dr. Cote thoughtfully considers the needs and expectations of his patients. For example, for full arch dentures, he prefers to use acrylic to preserve the patient’s bone health. A full set of porcelain dentures may put undue stress on a patient’s oral structure. 

The Dental Office at River House has many options for patients to choose from, including:

Implant Supported Dentures – Dental implants help preserve jaw bone health and thus are one of our most highly recommended choices. When anchored by a dental implant, dentures gain stability and sturdiness that surpasses other restorations. This contributes to a sense of permanence and an overall higher rate of patient satisfaction. 

Valplast® Flexible Partials – These comfortable metal-wire alternatives are generally more affordable than fixed restorations. Valplast’s unrivaled aesthetic quality makes them a preferred option for many patients needing to replace less than a full arch of teeth.

Partial Dentures – Metal wiring or a white framework can adequately support a set of partial dentures. Dr. Cote uses his skill and experience to construct your partial to be as discreet as possible. 

Unsupported Dentures – Without the aid of a dental implant, unsupported dentures rely on adhesive paste or suction to stay in place. Many find this method to be satisfactory, but over time the dentures will need to be readjusted to accommodate jaw bone shrinkage.

All service was great! My dental technician did an excellent cleaning and I love their computer program that shows your potential cavities. I was able to see for myself whether I had problems or not.

I felt like they did not over-recommend things and were supportive of preventative methods and giving teeth the chance to bounce back with proper hygeine before jumping to "You need a filling". I had some questions, and they had no problem answering them

10 Stars if Possible!
After the cleaning Dr. Cotes came in and he was great as well. He gave me a full dental exam and even took time to explain the clicking I get in my jaw. He gave me multiple options for teeth whitening and even told me the prices so there would be no up front surprises depending on which method I went with. He took the time to answer any question a threw at him and without trying to rush me out for the next patient. Not really sure what Megan S. is talking about in her review but I did see her only other review on the site was negative as well...just sayin...

I would give Dr. Cotes and his staff 10 stars if it was possible. Everyone knows going to the Dentist is a crappy process. I didn't think it was this possible to have a decent time at the Dentist Office and be taken care of in a timely manor!!!

Dr. Cote is just that good. I was referred to Dr. Cote by a friend at work, and I am SO thankful for that reference. The man is a consummate professional, has a friendly staff and has provided me with nothing short of stellar care for the last year. He explained things to me that my lifelong dentist never took the time to do before (like, how I can proactively strengthen the enamel on my teeth). He's got hi-tech gear that indicated areas where future problems might crop up and he's kept an eye on them during every return visit. I have never felt empowered and reassured in a dentist's office, but Dr. Cote is that good.

Dentistry can be a very personal enterprise, and since I had the same dentist since birth, finding a new dentist in DC was a harrowing experience. I actually walked out of three dentists offices (too sketchy for my tastes) before settling going to Dr. Cote. I live in the District, but I'm willing to suffer the indignity of Pentagon City just to have Dr. Cote take care of my teeth.
