Who knew that getting dentures could be something that enhanced your quality of life rather than inhibited it? Today’s dentists have more resources than ever available for their patients.
If you’re only familiar with the set of false teeth your grandfather used to wear, you might not realize these three major benefits that modern prosthetic designs have to offer:
Fill Out Your Facial Profile for a “Lift”
Some types of cosmetic dentures are designed to specifically lift your facial tissues to fill-in the areas of sagging skin and bone loss. Although they’re not exactly the same as having a facelift, some people view them as such. It all depends on the type of “plate” you’re having made, the budget you have in mind, and the type of lab your dentist is using.
Ultimately, having a properly fitted denture resting over your jaw can provide fullness to your lips and cheeks, where your natural teeth once did the same, delivering a more youthful appearance.
They Don’t Have to be “Large Plates”
If the idea of a bulky, cumbersome “plate” has been the main reason for not talking to your dentist about getting dentures, you’re in for a surprise. Today’s modern appliances can be hybrid, streamlined designs that are permanently anchored onto as few as four dental implants. There’s nothing to take in and out, and you’ll have more ability to enjoy the savory flavors and textures of your favorite foods.
Boost Your Confidence
Getting “false teeth” doesn’t mean your new denture has to look “fake.” Thanks to high quality materials and experienced lab technicians, getting a new denture made can actually enhance the overall appearance of your smile.
Each tooth on the new prosthesis is handcrafted down to the smallest of details. Everything from the color and hue to the size and shape of each tooth on the denture is considered.
There are multiple styles to choose from, giving you the ability to design a one-of-a-kind smile that fits your personality and individual anatomy. Who says that cosmetic dentistry isn’t an option if you have to wear dentures? It’s the perfect part of any smile makeover.
