It is a common misconception that dentures make the wearer look older. In fact, dentures can make an individual look younger by supporting the bone structure of the face and helping the wearer to regain muscle tone around the face and neck. Although the primary function of dentures is not for aesthetics, they can provide several benefits in helping the wearer look younger.
Can dentures improve your apperance?
Custom dentures have the ability to restore the original shape of your face- before tooth loss. Dentures can help to improve your facial proportions and provide you with a more youthful and natural aesthetic.
Although dentures have the ability to improve your appearance, ill-fitting dentures can cause the bone in the jaw to begin to wear away. This will cause your facial structure to shift, making you appear older. We recommend you visit a trusted Denture Clinic for a consultation before getting new dentures to ensure you are happy with the process and the clinics service.
How do dentures change your face?
A major contributor to facial ageing is the loss of facial height due to tooth loss. This loss of facial height is a major contributor to facial ageing, as the skin around the face and neck sags and the effects of facial ageing become exaggerated. In most cases these effects of facial ageing can be reversed by wearing dentures as they will return the facial height back to its original size.
Dentures change your face and ageing by:
- Reducing lines around the mouth and face
- Increasing fullness of the lips
- Defining the cheekbones
- Tightening and strengthening facial muscles
- Increasing blood flow to the skin making it more radiant, healthy, and smoother
- Strengthening and firming the jawline and neck
Can you tell if someone is wearing dentures?
High quality dentures from a professional Denture Clinic replicate natural teeth in all areas, including aesthetics. Dentures are designed to match the exact shade of the wearer’s gums and teeth. Measurements of the mouth are used to ensure the dentures match the size of your mouth and the height and shape of your natural teeth. All efforts are taken to ensure a natural-looking denture, indistinguishable from natural teeth.
