Replacement teeth don’t need to be immediately apparent as such. The question in this blog post’s title is one that your friends and family will be asking after you receive dental restorations from our Denver practice. With contemporary materials and techniques, tooth replacements are natural in look and feel. Read on to learn about how dentures can match your natural teeth in appearance and feel.
Dentures are one of the restorations that have benefitted the most from advances in dental technology. Consider dentures: they’re made of huge pieces of material, and there’s a lot of room for error there. The fit could be off, the coloring could be incorrect and look strange with your skin tone, and the teeth themselves could be (and often are) overly similar and cookie-cutter looking. With the tools we have available today, the dentures that come out of dental laboratories are able to correct these problems. They fit incredibly well, look natural, and possess varied teeth that appear to be your own.
If modern materials answer the question of unnatural-looking dentures, dental implants resolve the issue of loose or ill-fitting dentures. Implants replace missing tooth roots to provide new anchors for dental restorations. As time passes and the implant sites heal, the implants fuse with your jawbone. When dentures are connected to these fused implants, they are secured to your jaw in the firmest possible way. Your dentures will still be removable, but when they are in place, they will look and feel natural. There will be no slipping or clicking. There will be no need for adhesives of any kind; your dentures will simply sit tightly against your gums.
If you’ve had negative experiences with dentures in the past, we urge you to try again. Dentures from our Denver team will be indistinguishable from natural teeth to everyone but you. Get in touch to learn more.
