Getting new dentures can be a motivating experience for some people. However, there are often questions that come along with that experience.
Not all dentures are standard, because all mouths are unique. If you are considering getting dentures, it is important that you know there are many options out there for you. Here are some of the most common customization options out there for you to consider.
Options You May Want When Getting Your Dentures CustomizedThe first set of options you have for denture customization is color. There are many different shades of color that can be used for the gums as well as for the teeth.
If you are getting full dentures on the top and the bottom, then the color of teeth you choose can be a bit lighter than your natural teeth were. However, you should do what you can to get gums that look like your natural gums do.
Another set of options is gum texture. Not everyone has perfectly smooth gums. Most people have slight ridges and bumps along the way. That is part of what makes each mouth unique. Make sure you talk with us about getting gum texture that is similar to what you naturally have so they look more natural in your mouth.
Finally, you have different options in terms of how the dentures are made. Some options make the dentures a bit more expensive, but they make for a more durable product. This means a better fit, and a longer-lasting denture.
No matter which custom denture options you choose, what matters most is being able to adjust to them so you can use them properly. The next time you have denture questions, come in and see us.
