The Truth about Cosmetic Dentures.

Cosmetic dentures may not always seem like the best option for most patients, as this denotes the permanent loss of all natural teeth at the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both. Many who are forced to think about this type of solution have been dealing with painful and humiliating tooth loss for years, and have concluded with the help of their dentist that full cosmetic dentures are the most cost effective, permanent, and painless solution available. With today’s advances in dental procedures and the building of false teeth, however, cosmetic dentures are no longer the frightening blob that used to sit in a cup on your grandmothers bathroom vanity.

Most people who are contemplating the fitting of dentures will need to go through a heavy extracting process before the healing and fitting procedures can begin. Most dentists will schedule one extraction appointment, offering heavy to full sedation throughout the procedure, and the patient will undergo the surgical removal of all remaining teeth and/or pieces of the natural structures. All nerves, roots, and live parts of the natural teeth will be extracted completely, leaving a pain free and clean area that will eventually support a new set of cosmetic dentures. This can be a scary thought to many patients, but once the initial surgery woes have gone, most patients are relieved of pains and aches that have plagued them for years.

Most dentists offer options to the cosmetic denture patient as far as the crafting and developing of their new teeth. Within reason, of course, patients are able to choose the new teeth that they would like to wear for the next twenty plus years. There will be a line drawn by your dentist in respect to extreme skeletal structures or other such limitations, but for the most part, the new cosmetic dentures that you end up with will be as close to your dream teeth as you ever dreamed possible.

There are also new methods of creating the teeth which offer a multidimensional build to the finish product, causing slight translucency changes, layers, and shades of color which mimic natural teeth very closely. In this way, it is guaranteed that the only people who will know you wear dentures are the people that you tell. With the help and guidance of your dentist, you will find that the process of gaining cosmetic dentures can be exciting and rewarding once the initial disappointment wears off.
