Many patients have been wearing their dentures for many years and are afraid to change them for fear of the new dentures looking too big or too false. It is our aim to construct as natural looking teeth as possible. We usually encourage our patients to bring in an old photo of when they had their own teeth. Our technician then constructs a mock-up of how the dentures will look when they are completed.
We usually encourage our patients to take home the mock up to show family or friends so that they can decide if they are happy with the appearance. You will be wearing the dentures for some years so you need to consider the appearance carefully. It is recommended that one changes their dentures every 5 years.
