Get the most from your dentures
Enough change occurs over a period of 12 to 18 months to warrant regular checks on the fit of your dentures.
At such a maintenance visit, dentures can be cleaned and rejuvenated, making them look new and perform as expected.
The fitting surfaces get addressed and gaps between the gum and denture will be filled with new material.
This will make the dentures fit snug and feel comfortable. The procedure is referred to as a reline.
In some instances dentures with too much wear will have to be replaced giving you the chance to choose the quality of materials used, as well as the degree of authenticity of the finish, affecting your appearance. After all, you don’t want to appear to be wearing dentures, do you?
Generally speaking, base-line dentures do look false but by spending a tad more, this can be remedied. Opting for higher quality teeth will undeniably improve the outcome, as the dentures will appear more lifelike. If you can, combine this with a natural looking set-up of the teeth. It will make a significant difference to your total appearance.
If you also add some gum sculpting to the dentures, even those with a trained eye, won’t pick up the fact you are wearing dentures!
Thorough impression taking and accurate bite registration will add to the positive outcome of a good set of dentures.
