3 Unexpected Benefits of Modern Dentures
Do missing teeth cause embarrassment when you smile, making it difficult for you to engage fully in life? Do older dentures cause sores and irritation because they no longer fit well?
If either applies to you, you will be happy to know that the highest quality modern dentures in Fairfax aren’t just a prosthetic that allows you to chew again. In the hands of an experienced dentist, dentures don’t just improve functionality; they can enhance your appearance and comfort.
Benefits of Modern Dentures
- Natural appearance – One reason many are resistant to dentures is their reputation for looking like “false” teeth. But today your dentist works with skilled lab technicians to design and fabricate dentures that resemble natural teeth down to details like positioning and shape of individual teeth. The result is a customized prosthetic that looks as much like natural teeth as possible.
- Improved comfort – Don’t equate dentures with comfort? You will be happy to learn that lighter and more pliable materials used in modern dentistry have vastly improved the comfort of dentures. They create less pressure and conform closely to the contours of the jaw. The result is a prosthetic that is more comfortable and easy to wear.
- More youthful appearance – Aside from chewing and smiling, one of the important roles of a full set of teeth are to support your facial features. When you lose teeth, you also lose their support, resulting in a drawn and sunken appearance as your cheek collapses without any support. Modern dentures fill out the contours of your face, restoring a full, youthful appearance.
