After the trauma of tooth loss, the last thing you want to deal with is an ill-fitting or unattractive replacement tooth. That is why our O’Fallon dentures dentists go to such great lengths to personalize dentures, and deliver attractive results. There are actually a number of ways that our dental team tailors dentures for each patient.
The first thing that is necessary in order to achieve an attractive denture is to establish a strong foundation. Our dental team will take an exact mold of your gum tissue, so that your finished denture will fit snugly in place in your mouth. The flexible, yet sturdy, material that we use to craft the ersatz gum tissue of the denture facilitates a comfortable and functional fit.
We will also talk about how the specific replacement teeth in your dentures should be designed in order to best enhance your overall appearance. Here are a few key considerations to keep in mind:
1. The size of the teeth in your dentures
If your dentures’ teeth appear too large or too small for your face, this can be a dead giveaway that your teeth are fake. That is why our dental team designs dentures that have appropriately sized, aesthetically pleasing replacement teeth. Along with the exact size of your dentures, we’ll make sure that the shapes of your replacement teeth look natural and attractive for your overall appearance.
2. Brightness and whiteness of your smile
Your dentures will also be shaded to ensure that your smile appears fresh and luminous. Modern dentures deliver aesthetic results that look like natural dental enamel.
When you choose dentures as your restorative dentistry option, you will collaborate with our dental team to design a full arch prosthetic that meets all of your needs. Our O’Fallon dentures dentist office would be happy to give you more information about how dentures work—just give us a call!
