Denture Services

Dentures: Full or complete dentures are a full set (removable) teeth, that replace all of the missing teeth in your upper and lower jaw. If you have some natural teeth left, you denturist may suggest overdentures that will fit ‘over’ them. Some of the benefits associated with dentures include: Improved ability to bite and chew, Fewer restrictions on what you can eat, Reduced speeches problems caused by gaps and missing teeth, Gives your face a fuller appearance, Protects remaining teeth (if any) from excess wear, and Can be removed for proper cleaning and brushing.
Here at Five Star Dental Lab, we understand that the patient comes first and have vast amounts of experience with full service denture fabrication! Not only does Five Star have full dentures experience, but we are also one of the very few local dental laboratories in the Central Indiana region.  Five Star Dental Lab is located in Peru, IN at the Grissom Aeroplex. Being local allows us the ability to do same day services that many of the other dental labs can't compete with.  We can do same day denture repairs, same day denture relines, as well as same day orthodontic appliance repairs and adjustments.  Having a truly local lab also allows us to customize many of our orthodontic appliances and retainers, which we feel is a huge value add to our patients.  Five Star Dental Lab is here for the denture and orthodontic appliance needs of the Kokomo, Peru and surrounding communities. Give us a call today at (765) 689-0126 to learn what Five Star Dental Lab can do for you! 
Benefits of Dentures: 
For hundreds of years, dentures have been essential for people with missing teeth, and recent advances in dentistry have resulted in dentures that are more comfortable, attractive, and functional than ever before. At our Five Star Dental Lab, we offer the latest technology for patients who have missing or damaged teeth. 
Dentures are dental appliances made for the replacement of teeth. Some of the common patient benefits associated with dentures are listed below.
Function: In the past, dentures were made primarily for chewing, but our modern dentures are designed to be comfortable, aesthetically pleasing, and fully functional. During the fitting process, Dr. Pournaras ensures your dentures will sit properly with minimal slipping so that you can feel confident during daily activities like chewing and talking.
Versatility: Dentures are available in several different types, including full or partial sets. Full dentures are ideal for patients who have lost some or most of their teeth, while partial dentures are useful for filling in gaps of several missing teeth. Implant-supported dentures are a great option for patients who want a durable, non-removable denture.
Aesthetics: Our top-quality dentures are available in natural-looking porcelain or plastic materials for smile-beautifying results.
Health: Dentures support facial muscles and structures, and decrease oral bone loss. Dentures have also been shown to improve self-esteem in patients.
Cost: Dentures are a cost-effective treatment option, particularly when more natural teeth are present.
