When it comes to dental health, many people assume that dentures are a sign of aging. But the truth is, dentures can actually help you look younger. Traditional dentures don't have the same vertical dimension as your teeth, which can cause your lips to become thin and flat and wrinkles to form around the mouth. Fortunately, today's dentures look incredibly realistic and can be combined with dental implants for a natural-looking smile.
Even if you have a dental bridge, your dentures may not fit or look their best. As the jawbone shrinks due to tooth loss, the face changes shape and the distance between the nose and chin shortens. This can make you look much older than you actually are. If you're wondering how dentures will look on your face, it depends on the type of dentures you choose.
High-quality dentures can help you look younger by replacing the roots of the teeth and stimulating the jaws so that the body does not remove them. They also fill your mouth, which helps to preserve the alignment of the natural teeth and keep the jawbone in its proper place.
