"Fake Teeth" vs. Modern Dentures

Dentures have had a reputation in the past of feeling and looking more like "fake teeth." The idea of wearing fake teeth may not seem appealing, even if you are missing multiple teeth. However, today's modern dentures are designed and crafted much differently than in the past. There are also many more options for dentures that allow you to choose what best suits your needs and lifestyle.

Modern Dentures

Today's dentures are designed with your facial structure and skin tone in mind for a much more appealing aesthetic than in the past. With individually crafted teeth, these days, dentures provide the variations that you see with natural teeth so that no one will be able to tell your teeth aren't real. Modern dentures also fit better, eliminating the fear of slippage or movement when you're talking or eating.

Implant Supported Dentures

Dental implants can also be used to support dentures. A few strategically placed implants can provide the base that your handcrafted denture will snap into. Implants give denture wearers a much more stable and secure fit. Because they work to stimulate your jawbone, they also provide better longevity for your denture by keeping your bones healthy.
