Cosmetic vs. Traditional Dentures
The dentist treating the patient with missing teeth plays a huge role in natural appearance, function, and facial expression. The appearance of the entire lower half of the face depends on the teeth, where they are placed and their supporting structures. It is usually not too hard to determine that a person is wearing an improperly constructed or ill fitting denture. The reduced distance between the nose and chin, makes the face take on the appearance of premature aging. This can be restored with a correctly designed cosmetic denture. Correct positioning of the denture teeth will also improve speech that has been degraded due to a patients old denture.
