Trying to Imagine “How will I look with dentures?”

before and after dentures

You know you need dentures, but it’s hard to take the leap when you don’t know how you’ll look in them. San Antonio’s denture expert, Dr. Bec, gives you some tips to help you picture how you’ll look with dentures:

Tip #1: Start with a picture of you smiling when you had teeth that you loved

Sure – you were probably younger in that picture. However, reminding yourself of what you looked like when you had healthier teeth is a good place to start when you try to picture how you will look with dentures. When you get dentures made by a cosmetic dentist, they can be made to match your natural teeth when you loved them best. Put your fingers in front of your broken and missing teeth and smile large. Imagine your smile filled with healthy teeth again.

Tip #2: Imagine Your Dream Smile

How will you look with dentures? How do you want to look while wearing dentures? Lifelike cosmetic dentures like the ones we make can actually improve your appearance. One patient wanted a lip lift and we were able to customize her dentures to make her face look fuller and younger again. Did you hate your crooked teeth all your life? Bring a picture of a smile you love to your consultation and we’ll work to design your dentures like that.

Tip #3: Consider Denture Implants

The thing I always hated about my grandfather’s dentures was the funny mouth movements he made to keep them in place. His smile looked fine. It was his mannerisms that were funky.

How a denture works for you is a big part of how it looks. If you want avoid funny mouth habits, you need to be sure that your dentures fit & stay in place on its own. That requires dental implants. Implant supported dentures have the double benefit of slowing bone loss in your jaw. This keeps you looking younger. You can find out if implants are right for you at a free consultation.

Tip #4: Don’t Expect Bargain Dentures to Work Miracles

There is a huge price range for dentures because dentists make them different ways. To ensure your denture looks and fits great, choose a dentist who has advanced denture training and a good lab instead of choosing the lowest price.

You may not be in San Antonio, but look for an office like ours if you want a great looking denture. Here’s what you should look for: We use the latest digital denture technology and have our own in-office digital denture lab.
