Dentures may be a great choice if you want to replace missing teeth. Removable dentures can renew the appearance of your smile and make it easier to eat and speak with full confidence. Dr. Kevin Boulard, our general dentist, can provide either partial or full removable dentures for patients in Merrimack, NH. Full dentures can replace all the teeth in your lower arch, upper arch, or both compared to partial dentures that leave your remaining teeth to act as support. At Something To Smile About, we can help you determine whether full or partial dentures match your needs, and then make your restoratives look natural. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Boulard to get more information about dentures.


Dentures may provide the picture-perfect smile you have always wanted. However, not all providers have the experience or expertise to achieve optimal results. Patients often work with Something To Smile About for the following benefits:

  • Experience: Our staff has years of experience providing quality services and knows how to make sure dentures look and feel natural.
  • Advanced tools: We use the latest dental tools and technologies in the industry to deliver superior care.
  • Service: We work hard to ensure each patient is comfortable and satisfied with their outcomes.


You could be an ideal candidate for dentures if you have suffered the loss of many teeth, but your gums and jawbone are still healthy. If you have natural teeth, they may either be extracted if you want a full denture or kept for the placement of a partial denture. During your consultation with Dr. Boulard, he will assess your mouth and give you options based on your needs.


We will go over your denture-making process step-by-step when you visit us in our Merrimack, NH office. In some cases, Dr. Boulard will extract any remaining teeth before taking oral impressions, which will help make your custom dentures. Partial dentures will be matched to blend with your remaining teeth for an attractive finish. Once your dentures are crafted, Dr. Boulard will fit them so they are comfortable. He will also go over the best way to care for your new dentures.


It may take time before your dentures feel comfortable and natural in your mouth; however, it should eventually become easier to speak and eat normally. If the dentures feel loose, return to Something To Smile About for an adjustment. You will need to clean your dentures by brushing them twice a day. Whenever you remove your dentures, they need to be soaked to prevent them from drying out. Continue to attend cleanings and exams at Something To Smile About so Dr. Boulard can check the wear and fit of your dentures and the health of your mouth. He will discuss if your dentures need to be repaired or replaced; however, with proper care, your dentures should last for a long time.


What is the difference between full dentures and partial dentures?

Full dentures replace all of your teeth and may require you to have the remainder of your teeth extracted. Partial dentures only replace a row of missing teeth and can be blended into and held in place by your natural teeth as long as they are strong and healthy.

Do dentures change the way your face looks?

Yes, they do. A custom-made, well-designed set of full or partial dentures crafted by Dr. Boulard can help restore the natural look of your face for a younger, more aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Can you sleep with your dentures in your mouth?

It is recommended that you always remove your dentures before you go to sleep, soaking them in a cup of water to keep them from drying out.

Do dentures look natural?

Yes, they do. When Dr. Boulard is creating a set of dentures, he will choose a tooth shade, shape, and size that best matches the aesthetics of your face for a natural look. If you are getting partial dentures, he will choose a shade that best matches the color of your natural teeth so that they blend seamlessly together.

What is the most common problem with dentures?

The most common problem people have with their dentures is a poor fit. Ill-fitting dentures can result in slipping, falling out, and even causing pain or discomfort. That’s why Dr. Boulard, at Something To Smile About in Merrimack, NH, ensures that every pair of dentures he creates for his patients has a snug, comfortable fit. If necessary, Dr. Boulard can adjust dentures to get the fit just right.
