One of the main reasons that people consider dentures is to restore their appearance after the loss of several teeth due to disease or trauma. Although they look better than no teeth, they don’t look exactly like real teeth and here’s why:
- They cover your natural gums with a pink-colored resin.
- Dentures are more opaque than other dental appliances so natural light doesn’t pass through.
- When pressure is not being applied to the gums during chewing like normal teeth do, the jawbone eventually begins to dissolve and weakens the appearance of the jawline.
- Improper fitting dentures can slip while speaking or eating.
Rather than looking to dentures to restore your appearance following the loss of several teeth, consider All-On-4 dental implants. All-On-4 dental implants provide a permanent new smile that looks and works just like real teeth. Attached to the jawbone using four implant posts, they offer a level of appearance and convenience not available through full mouth dentures.
