Do Modern Dentures Look More Like Real Teeth?

Until recently, there was a stigma associated with wearing dentures because they were looked at as a last-resort tooth replacement for the elderly. It didn’t help that dentures back in the day looked fake and one-size-fits-all.

Fortunately, the materials and techniques we use to make dentures today at our Winston-Salem dental office are a vast improvement over those used years ago. The result is dentures that look and feel more natural than you ever thought possible. 

Modern Dentures for a Natural-Looking Smile

Full and partial dentures are prosthetic teeth that replace missing teeth and restore your ability to speak, eat, and smile again with confidence. Years ago, dentures were pretty much a one-size-fits-all proposition. The result was “false teeth” that looked, well, false. 

Today’s denture teeth come in a variety of shades, shapes, and lengths so that you never end up with a boxy appearance like dentures of the past. The denture base is a pink resin material to match the color of your gums.

One-of-a-Kind Dentures Customized for Your Smile

Modern dentures in Winston-Salem are made with a pink resin material for the base that matches the color of your gums. The denture teeth can be individually customized in a variety of shapes, shades, and sizes to avoid the one-size-fits-all appearance of older dentures.

When making your dentures today, skilled technicians custom-craft your dentures to your dentist's precise specifications and place each tooth individually in the acrylic base, which eliminates an unrealistically perfect appearance. We can even work off of old photos to help recreate the healthy, youthful-looking smile you thought you’d lost.
