Dentures have come a long way from when your great-grandmother had them. No longer do you need to have poorly fitting dentures that come out at the most inconvenient times. “If you are looking for a fantastic set of dentures, make sure you follow these three easy tips to ensure you receive a brilliant smile,” says Dr.Judy Strutz.
1. Be prepared to spend the time to get an outstanding result. Many dentists will provide dentures after only a couple of visits to their office. As dentures do best when they are custom made, be ready to visit your dentist several times before you even see a mock-up of your final denture. Time is of the essence, but you do not want to rush this.
2. While everyone wants a luminous smile, if your smile looks too radiant with dentures, it might appear that you are wearing exactly that - dentures. Dr. Strutz suggests, “Consider a tooth shade that brightens, but yet provides a natural look.” Shining as bright as a diamond has a time and a place. The color of your denture is not one of them.
3. How your teeth fit together is critical for the success of your dentures. Make sure you are seeing someone who understands occlusion or bite issues and can make your dentures fit and stay when you are eating and speaking. There is nothing more embarrassing then losing your teeth when you are in the middle of something important.
While dentures have come a long way over the years, the tips above will help you to keep looking young and healthy even after you have lost your own teeth.
