When you think of dentures, you may picture a set of big, clunky false teeth. But they don’t have to look fake at all. West Seneca cosmetic dentist Dr. Embury knows how to make your dentures beautiful and natural-looking, so natural that people won’t even be able to tell your dentures aren’t your natural teeth.
How to Get Natural-Looking Dentures
The materials used to create denture teeth are an essential factor. A popular material for teeth is acrylic because easy to work with and inexpensive. However, the problem with acrylic is that it doesn’t mimic the translucency and variations of color found in natural teeth. Also, it isn’t very stain resistant or durable. Dr. Embury uses premium Ivoclar teeth. They not only look beautiful and natural, but they are extremely stain resistant and durable.
The material used for the denture base is also important. Less expensive materials will distort some during processing, which compromises the fit. Dr. Embury doesn’t use any of these cheaper materials.
There is an artistic element in creating a beautiful set of dentures, and you should know about Dr. Embury’s artistic side. Dental school teaches to purposely make dentures a little bit on the ugly side so that people won’t think they are fake. Dr. Embury doesn’t subscribe to that philosophy. He will show you that quality teeth and materials make it possible to have dentures that look beautiful and natural. He will give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
And to be sure you get what you want, he’ll have a try-in appointment where you can try in your teeth, set in a pink wax that mimics the final denture base. So you can see exactly how your new smile will look before the lab completes it.
