I'm worried that my dentures are going to look fake.
Many people getting dentures for the first time have this fear, and it's understandable. You might be remembering your parents' or grandparents' dentures – blocky teeth set into bright pink gums without any of the variation that occurs in nature. You might also be worried because you remember them sliding at unfortunate and embarrassing moments... or when grandpa wanted to shock a youngster!
Today's dentures are completely different from what you remember. They are carefully crafted to fit with the shape of your mouth and face and your natural coloration. Additionally, each tooth is created and placed individually to give the dentures a natural look. Aesthetics are important in dental care, and we recognize that looking good is important.
Your dentures will be designed to fit the contours of your gums so that they don't slip and slide. If you ever feel like the fit of your dentures is changing (which can happen due to changes in bone density), give us a call so that we can adjust them or replace them. Properly fitting dentures are important, and not just because slips are embarrassing. When dentures don't fit properly, they can rub your gums and create sores.
We are looking forward to helping you by creating attractive, well-fitting dentures. Give us a call to schedule your appointment. We provide family dentistry to all members of the family, no matter what your age is.
