Missing teeth can impact a lot more than just your smile. Your teeth also impact the appearance of your face as a whole. When you’re missing teeth, your face can appear to sag, making you look older. At Dr. James Polley’s office, we can help correct all of these concerns with cosmetic dentures.
Cosmetic dentures help to maintain your jawbone far more effectively than traditional dentures do. Your jawbone plays an important role in the appearance of your face. If it is allowed to shrink, it can make your face look sunken in or appear to sag.
Instead of just merely replacing your missing teeth, cosmetic dentures help to maintain and improve the appearance of your face. Usually, dentures rest on top of your gums and that’s it. Cosmetic dentures are designed to sit partially on top of your muscles, helping to provide the most function and facial support possible. This different design is what makes this type of dentures so beneficial to your smile.
When you’re missing teeth, there’s several options you could choose from. Cosmetic dentures can be a great choice because they replace your missing teeth as well as maintaining your appearance and helping to preserve your jawbone. Not only will function be restored to your bite, but your face will appear younger as well.
