How will I look with dentures?
Your dentures, personally created for you by your Denturist, will provide you with a natural looking smile. If years of aging and pronounced facial lines are starting to affect how you feel about yourself, take action and see your Denturist first! With a set of professionally fitted dentures, you will see a positive difference in your appearance. Facial lines may be softened or reduced, and you may look years younger!
How does a Denturist make dentures that are just right for me?
Your Denturist will evaluate your facial characteristics - the shape of your face, the colour of your eyes, your hair and complexion - when selecting the teeth to use. These factors also affect the colour and construction of the base material that will hold the teeth comfortably in your mouth. In the case of partial dentures, the material may be either moulded plastic or a thin, high-quality casting of chrome-cobalt alloy. Complete dentures will normally be set into an acrylic denture base of a colour and texture closely resembling your natural mouth tissue. No two sets of dentures are alike, and your Denturist will skillfully blend all of these components into a perfect, natural look for you.
