Providing You with a Pleasing & Comfortable Smile
Although oral health care has made great strides in recent years, nearly 28 million Americans still rely on partial or full dentures, according to the American Dental Association. The problem with these numbers is that the ADA also reports that only about 3-5% of dentists currently practicing have pursued any sort of advanced training in denturesafter completing dental school. Not only that, some dental schools have begun to scale back denture training in favor of implant dentistry. The art of making quality dentures is all but lost, leaving approximately 8% of Americans with subpar dentures.
At Chino Hills Dentistry, Dr. Randy Agnew strives to be the top denture provider in the Inland Empire / Orange County area by seeking out advanced training, as well as the most qualified labs and updated equipment around. As a patient of Dr. Agnew, you will feel confident and comfortable wearing your dentures.

The Lost Art of Making Dentures
Modern denture labs focus on high volume, so insufficient training and high turnover are commonplace. A dentist with a skilled eye can spot faults and flaws in nearly any set of dentures produced by such a lab.
Unfortunately, these flaws lead to:
- A poor fit for patients, often subjecting the lower jaw to added duress.
To eliminate these unnecessary issues, Dr. Agnew has sought out and utilizes arguably the most dependable denture lab in the U.S. The owner of the lab, a world-renowned lecturer and denture authority with 42 years of experience to his name, personally finishes each appliance to ensure accuracy.
At Chino Hills Dentistry, we take great care to provide you with dentures that are made from only the very best components and materials. For superior aesthetic appearance and significantly better function, wear, and lifespan, we will generally use porcelain instead of acrylic resin or plastic.
Turn Back the Clock with a Denture “Facelift”
When dentures are properly fitted, they work in harmony with your underlying facial support. Your front teeth should support your lips and the back teeth, the cheeks. When these factors are not taken into consideration, the facial fullness that could be achieved instead results in a sunken, aged, older appearance.
Dr. Agnew will carefully measure your exact facial dimensions to ensure your dentures are constructed to promote lips that appear plumper, a neck that is tighter, and a jawline and chin that are better defined. Properly fitted dentures can even reduce wrinkles at the corners of your mouth.
Make Loose Dentures a Thing of the Past
If you’d love to be done with messy pastes, adhesives, and unstable dentures, we have several solutions. These solutions provide more stability than traditional dentures, a completely natural aesthetic, and full chewing function.
We can offer more retention via two implant solutions:
- Snap-On Dentures with Mini Implants – In as little as one hour, Dr. Agnew can place these FDA-approved mini implants, even in patients with some bone loss. We may even be able to retrofit your existing dentures to the mini implants. Costing much less than traditional implants, these mini wonders can often be utilized the very same day they are placed.
- Permanent (Non-Removable) Smile – For the ultimate in dentistry, we combine traditional implants with a hybrid bridge/denture retained by a screw. As this piece is not taken in and out, this system can restore nearly all of your original chewing function.
