Custom Made for Comfort and Quality
When a patient decides to receive dentures as their teeth replacement option, the process to fabricate them is very detailed and intricate so that his or her new teeth are customized to look and feel natural. Since everyone’s oral anatomy is unique, customization of prosthetic teeth is essential for increasing oral function and restoring smiles. From the size of one’s mouth to the shape and thickness of their jaws, dentures must be tailor made.
The process for creating dentures begins with taking pictures, X-rays and impressions (molds) of jaws and any existing teeth. Once this is complete, our dentists will determine the unique measurements of the denture(s). These specifications will then be sent to a dental laboratory where the full or partial denture will be created by skilled technicians.
In the interim, while patients are waiting for their new teeth, they may be given temporary prosthetics to wear. Once the dentures are ready, they will be sent to our office and patients will return for a final fitting, and if there are any issues with the way dentures fit, adjustments will be made.
In addition to being custom made, dentures are crafted from very high quality materials to help lend a natural appearance and improvement to one’s smile. Porcelain is used to mimic lost tooth structure while pink-colored acrylic is used to resemble gum tissue. The pink colored portion of dentures is important for creating a seamless transition from natural gum structure to prosthetics.

Getting sound medical advice from Dr. Chen has been amazing. I'm looking forward to a greater, brighter smile that will restore my confidence. Staff is professional, friendly and willing to help with all my questions. Looking forward to the end result!!
Trust is key to a successful result... I more than trust Dr. Chen~Diana R.10/15/2020
We love the dental depot! Staff was so friendly. I brought my two year old and even though usually new places are hard for him, he really got along well with our Dental Hygenist Beth and Dr. Shake. The train theme is perfect for him too. He was mesmerized by the train suspended from the ceiling. And it was nice for me to relax for the appt!Carley F.9/30/2020
I can't believe how easy and painless a dreadful root-canal process was!
I trust Dr. Chen and he is so experienced and knowledgeable. This dentistry has all the greatest and latest technology and really knows how to handle you with care. The ladies at the front are super nice too, very kind. Everyone there treated me so nicely. All the employees must be very happy because they are so genuinely nice. I am now a customer for life. Thank you more than you know. -Khalid Matroodkmatrood9/30/2020
Bobbie and Nancy were very professional. They were thorough in their work, while making sure I was never in pain. They made time to educate me, and were very accommodating with my requests. Dr Sheikh was incredibly knowledgeable and I felt comfortable being in his care. I never felt pressured to make haste decisions, and the staff was warm n friendly. The procedures I had done were priced lower than my previous dentist, yet I don’t fell as though I’m sacrificing quality of care. Over all a positive experience.Angela D.9/26/2020
I went to Dental Depot to solve a problem with an implant performed by a different dentist. Dental Depot of The Colony provides the same friendly excellent service I was accustomed to from their Highland Village location. Dr Chen is patient, thorough and makes you feel confident as well as comfortable. One note, their Covid precautions are some of the best I have seen. I was initially pretty worried about seeing a dentist during a pandemic but have no concerns about safety in their office. Thank you Dr Chen and staff.David M.9/19/2020
