If you're like most people, you'd rather look how you feel. Dentures can be a great way to give you back your youthful smile, helping you to look younger than if you were to go without.
What are Dentures?Dentures are removable prosthetic teeth that are custom made from molds of your jaw. They are meant to act, and look, just like your natural teeth.
They can not only restore your ability to eat and speak, but they can also help to restore a more youthful appearance.
Full Set of Teeth
Missing teeth gives you the appearance of looking old, whether it's a few teeth or both bridges. Even worn teeth, which occurs naturally as you get older, can give you a more aged appearance. But dentures are made to look like strong healthy teeth, which can instantly take years off of your look.
Without teeth, your ability to speak properly and be understood is greatly affected. This particular way of speaking can make you sound as though you belong in a nursing home. Dentures give you back your speaking ability, helping you to appear younger.
Restore Face ShapeWhen you lose your teeth, your jawbone begins to reabsorb. This is because you have no tooth roots left in your jaw, so nutrients that were once reserved for keeping it strong and healthy, holding those teeth firmly in place, are being sent elsewhere. As a result, your jaw begins to weaken and change shape, giving your face a sunken, aged appearance. Wearing dentures gives your face definition again, filling it out and making you look younger.
Dental ImplantsAn alternative to traditional dentures, dental implants provide a permanent solution to tooth loss. Titanium rods are implanted into your jawbone, acting as tooth roots, which support bridges of prosthetic teeth. Implants have an added bonus of slowing, even stopping, bone loss.
Missing teeth can age you beyond your years. Even if you feel young, and really aren't that old to begin with, you might not look it. In order to get back your youthful appearance, wear your dentures. Contact our office about your options.
