Smile and Chew Again
If you feel self-conscious about your smile because of your missing teeth, chewing problems, and difficulty in speech, then removable dentures are a good option for you to get back your smile and dental function. At Longview Dental Family and Emergency Dental, we recommend removable dentures as a reliable, cost-effective, and natural-looking replacement option for one or more missing teeth. According to the American College of Prosthodontics, about 90% of Americans who have lost all teeth use dentures for tooth replacement.
Greeted energetically by receptionist as you walk in. Dr. Zaher and staff explain everything in a way that's easy to understand. All procedures are discussed with multiple options so you can decide what you are comfortable with having done. Will definitely be going back for any work I need done.
Hands down best dental care I have ever experienced! I was terrified to have 3 of my wisdom teeth removed, but Dr. Zaher and his staff at Longview family and emergency dental made the process so comfortable and without any pain! I was told about all my options and had all my questions answered clearly. I happened to go back again for a filling and once again great care and service! I am so thankful I found this dental clinic, honest and great care! Thank you !!
Dr. Adam and staff were great! Saw me on a Sunday for bad tooth pain and fixed me up. Would recommend to everybody.

Just had a wisdom tooth removed and they were so great!!! I felt no pain at all and the best part was that I didn’t have to wait longer than 5 minutes in the waiting room which was just long enough to fill out one piece of paper. I will be coming back here for sure for all my dental needs! Super friendly staff as well. Thank you!! -Lauren R.
I came in as a new patient and it was way more than Id expected. The office was a welcoming environment. The staff were very friendly and make you comfortable in everything they do. Dr. Zaher is amazing. He always does a great job explaining the process before starting. I finally found a great place to go for my dental work. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a great place who provides so many dental services. You wont regret it!!
Very friendly staff. I had a filling break loose and they got me right in. Highly recommend them to anyone.
Went in for a emergency wisdom tooth extraction last night and had a wonderful experience! Dr Adam made sure to lay out all my options for me treatment wise and let me go with my decision with confidence. He did the whole procedure on his own and my husband and I were more than impressed. Would definitely recommend!!! 💕
I was extremely nervous about having one of my wisdom teeth removed, but he made me laugh and got my mind off of it. Super friendly staff!! Also love that they are open late and on weekends, that way I don't have to miss work when me or my family has an appointment. Very highly recommend!!! If I can work up the courage to get the other wisdom teeth removed, he will definitely be the one to do it!! 😄
LOVE this place! The entire staff was amazing, and made me feel right at home. I went expecting to lose a tooth,but Dr. Adam saved it, and fixed a longtime problem, all in the same visit. I have a horrible fear of the dentist, he made me so comfortable, that I am looking forward to going back. Our entire family will be using this place. AMAZING PLACE AND PEOPLE!!! I cannot say enough good things about everyone here! And thank goodness, everyone there has a great sense of humor! Prices are very reasonable too!
Very wonderful dentist!
Just in awe! The staff is absolutely outstanding caring loving! And the assistant... wish I could remember her name! She was incredible!! Went in being terrified and they made it a point to make me feel good physically and emotionally! I am so thankful to have found this place! 4 teeth extracted 2 wisdom teeth and 2 molars and he did an amazing job! Thank you Dr. Adam! 🤎
I was looking for a dentist for a second opinion on a some dental issue I was having. I called Longview Family and Emergency Dental Care. Andrea was so empathetic and she told me that they believed in treating their patients like family. She set up an appointment for me right away. Dr. Adam tried to make me feel at home from the start. I didn't want to have a panoramic done because my insurance was not going to pay for that. He told me not to worry he wouldn't charge me but he needed it for his evaluation. He also took pictures of my teeth and took a lot of time explaining medically what the issues were. He was always kind and patient. I really appreciated that he regarded me as a collaborator in my dental care. He did some excellent work on my teeth that day. I would whole heartily recommend this practice to my friends and family with no hesitation.
Dr. Adam and the staff makes me feel right at home immediately when I walk in the door. Everything was on time and it was an extremely professionally run office. Dr. Adam was very nice and informative. He provided excellent service and I couldn’t be happier with the results.This is a fantastic experience and a great place to go take care of your teeth and I would highly recommend to anyone!!
Great guy! Made me comfortable and tried to ease my fears. I'm extremely scared of dentists but this one was great. Would highly recommend them. Staff was friendly and welcoming as well.
Dr. Adam is extremely accurate, definitely a professional. The best dental care I have ever experienced. I would recommend this dentistry to anyone.So grateful I found this dentist and in a great location. I’d highly recommend bringing your whole family.
I am 12 years old and i got my teeth pulled and it was very quick and painless! I was in so much pain I couldn’t stand it thank you Dr.Adam for taking care of me! This is his mother Tuesday of last week I woke up with my mouth swollen and In so much I couldn’t stand it! I called around and found Dr.Adams office I called at 5 and they told me to come on in. I arrived at around 6pm at they got me right in and took care of the extraction that needed to be done. Him and his whole staff are so welcoming and really have a way of making you feel comfortable! I highly recommend him to anyone. Fast forward to yesterday my 12 year old had a broken tooth that many other dentists offices in Tyler Texas wouldn’t pull. He woke up Thursday with his jaw swollen and he couldn’t eat and hadn’t slept so I immediately called Dr. Adams office he told me to bring him and I did and man was that a diaster my son wasn’t having it! He didn’t was terrified and just refused to let Dr.Adam do the work. Him and his entire tried their best to try and comfort him but he just wasn’t doing it. Then today he couldn’t take the pain anymore and decided to get them pulled and without hesitation Dr.Adams said to bring him in. And we did and he did an amazing job my son said it was quick and painless and that it wasn’t that bad. If your having a dental emergency definitely go see him!
Had to go in on a Sunday. Very friendly staff. The best dentist ever 😁. I am so happy with the experience, I would recommend him to everyone. A very nice guy.
Everyone took great care of me, the office was clean, and they were all very supportive especially since i was nervous about getting my wisdom tooth removed. Overall great experience!
I got my wisdom tooth pulled 2 weeks ago, anyone that has ever known me knows I’m absolutely afraid of dentist always have been. I came in scared for my life, but Dr. Adam and both of his helpers talked me through every step on how it was going to feel during and after the procedure, I can honestly say that this has got to be 1 of the scariest but the most calming and easiest visits I’ve ever had in a dentist office. “My favorite Dentist” 🤗
I was referred to Dr.Zaher by a friend, I had a major tooth emergency and he was able to see me same day to help with my emergency! His hours are amazing if you are needing dental care on the weekend/ emergency care. He is very very up front with care and pricing! His information about his dental care plan is straight forward! He was able to verify my crazy insurance over all great service!
Alma and Dr. Adam are awesome! Super nice and did great work. Both were very comforting and professional. I will be coming back.
Usually, I’m quite anxious and stressed about even calling the dentist, but this place is amazing! I felt absolutely no pain and the procedures that I had were extremely quick. They explain everything in detail about your personalized dental plan and costs. The staff is personable and friendly and the Dr. puts your care and comfort first, plus he has a cool sense of humor. I am happy that I was referred to Longview Family and Emergency Dental!
Thank you all for the warm, friendly, and welcoming atmosphere during my visit. I broke a molar, and the office was able to squeeze me in. Dr. Zaher is an amazing dentist, extremely patient, easy to talk to, takes the time to know his patients. He is passionate about his job, takes his time to explain things to you thoroughly in a way that you understand, readily and happily answers all questions, and is just so knowledgeable about his profession and it shows in his work. I couldn't be more pleased with my experience — very friendly staff. Thanks to the whole staff at Long View Family and Emergency Dental care from a grateful new patient.
If you are looking for a dentist with SKILLS & personality, this is your man! I got a 3 day run around with no relief in sight. Until I found this amazing place at 515 on a Wednesday . He told me to come on in, it was one of the best decisions I have made. Don’t get me wrong teeth can be painful and it’s a healing process but I’ve found my new dentist and will be driving over an hour just to see him! Great guy, great staff! Thanks so much.
Dr. Adam is an absolutely outstanding dentist. He is very professional and talented. He has a great experience and does an excellent job.He genuinely cares about his patients. I would highly recommend him without any hesitation.
So glad these folks were there when I needed them. Quality work. Quality people. I am nervous about dental work, but they put me at ease. I highly recommend them.
What are Dentures?
Dentures are removable appliances that are used for replacing missing natural teeth. They rest on the oral soft tissues and jaw bone and gain their support from the healthy natural teeth or implants on either side of the gap.
What are Different Types of Dentures?
Depending on the number of teeth they replace, dentures are of two main types; partial and complete. Partial dentures are appliances that are used for replacing one or more missing teeth in a jaw. They possess metallic extensions, known as the clasps, that encircle the tooth crown and provide retention and support to the dentures.
Complete dentures are used when there is no natural tooth remaining inside the jaw. These dentures rely on the underlying soft tissues and the contour of the jaw bone for their retention. The base of full dentures, which rests on the oral soft tissues is made of pink-colored acrylic resin, to match the color of the gums, while the artificial teeth are made from white acrylic resin.
Based on the method of preparation, there are three main types of dentures:
- Conventional – this is the complete denture that is made after all existing teeth have been removed, and the soft tissues have healed completely. The process for
- Immediate – for patients who cannot afford to wait while the healing of the tooth extraction site takes place, Dr. Adam may recommend immediate dentures that are inserted the same day when the remaining teeth are removed. We will take measurements and make impressions during your first visit. We will remove the teeth from the models that have to be extracted, and then prepare the dentures. As soon as the teeth are removed, we will insert the immediate dentures. Although you won’t have to live without your teeth during the healing phase, you may need to get your dentures relined replaced once complete healing has taken place.
- Overdenture – if you have healthy remaining teeth, we can utilize them to provide better support for the dentures and to preserve the underlying bone. Such a prosthesis is known as an overdenture that rests over prepared teeth. Dental implants can also be used for supporting an overdenture.
How are Dentures Prepared?
Conventional dentures are normally prepared in multiple steps.
- Consultation – first, we will perform a detailed examination of your oral cavity and look at the x-ray images and study models of your teeth. Our dentists will then prepare a customized treatment plan for you and suggest various options for replacing your missing teeth. At this stage, we will also answer your queries and guide you to choose the option which best suits your oral health needs, aesthetic requirements, and budget
- Impression Making – during the next appointment, we will make impressions of your teeth and send them to the laboratory to prepare customized impression trays for the upper and lower jaws.
- Bite Recording – during the next appointment, we will record your bite by using wax wafers. The bite is recorded to ensure that your artificial teeth are placed precisely at the same positions as your natural teeth.
- Tooth Setup – after the bite has been recorded, we will then send it to the laboratory, where it will be placed on an articulator, a special device that mimics the upper and lower jaws. A dental technician will then attach the artificial teeth and carve a wax pattern of the dentures.
- Trail-in – in the next appointment, we will ask you to wear the wax pattern to ensure that it has an optimal fit and esthetics. Once you and our dentists are satisfied, we will send it to the laboratory for the final processing and fabrication of the dentures.
During the final appointment, we will insert the dentures. Congratulations on getting your new set of teeth!
Looking After Your Dentures
You may feel slight discomfort during the initial few days, which should go away in a few weeks when the muscles of your mouth and the tongue become used to the new addition in the oral cavity. The American Dental Association recommends the following things to take care of your removable dentures:
- Brushing and Cleaning – make sure you brush your dentures each day. There is no need to apply toothpaste; simply use a brush to remove the food particles. Brushing will also prevent artificial teeth from getting stained. Before you brush your dentures, rinse them in lukewarm water. Never use hot water as it can de-shape the dentures.
- Avoid Hard and Sticky Foods – while wearing dentures, we do not recommend you eat sticky or hard foods. This is because hard foods may cause your dentures to break, while the sticky foods like raisins, caramel, and candies may dislodge the dentures.
- Putting your Dentures in Water – when you are not wearing your dentures, you must keep them in water, or any denture cleaning solution. This will prevent their warpage.
Removable dentures restore not only your smile but also your self-confidence and ability to speak and eat without difficulty. But what if you accidentally drop and break your dentures? What if you have a broken clasp? Don’t worry, no matter what type of denture emergency you have, whether it’s the day, night, or even a weekend, the dental team at Longview Family and Emergency Dental is there to take care of all your general and emergency dental needs.
