Until the last two generations, dentures meant a fake-looking smile that was bulky and had teeth that were opaque and unnaturally white. Dentistry leaders and developers heard patients’ complaints and rose to meet the growing aesthetic demands of patients who wished for a more natural option.
According to a recent study of 283 participants, most reported that the appearance of their dentures actually exceeded their expectations. This is great news for patients facing extractions or tooth loss!
Feeling confident about your appearance is important, even as we age. People are living longer, staying social, and finding romance well into their golden years. Having a smile that looks attractive and functions properly opens the door to staying vital.
Dr. Whitney Gomez creates dentures in our Southeast, TX dental office with our patients’ needs in mind.
Realistic and Natural Looking Teeth
Today’s denture teeth come in so many shades, you might feel like you are browsing the paint swatches at the local home improvement store. The goal is to find a match that looks natural and attractive. Here are a few factors we consider:
- Hair color
- Facial shape
By accounting for all of the qualities that make up the face, the results can look like you were born with your new smile!
Secure Fit and Durability
Dentures need to stay put. When they fall out of your mouth while eating or speaking, it can be embarrassing. Dr. Gomex will meticulously design the fit of your new denture to eliminate denture mishaps.
If he believes you could benefit from implant-retained dentures, he will go over what that entails. Many patients appreciate the added security of implant dentures.
Maintenance and Repairs
Just like our natural teeth, dentures have a tough job to do. It makes sense we need to monitor them for damage like cracks and chips that can collect bacteria. Bacteria leads to odors and can cause gum disease. We will examine your denture at each appointment to make sure they continue looking and smelling fresh.
