Dentures that cost less have a lot of problems, but the one most people will notice is that they don’t look good. If you choose lower-tier dentures, prepare to have an unattractive smile. This is a blunt statement, but the truth is that there are many reasons why all dentures can’t look attractive. High-quality FOY® Dentures can correct these problems so you can have a beautiful smile, even after you’ve lost your teeth.

Low-Quality Materials

One of the biggest savings that go into making cheap dentures is the materials used. Traditional dentures are typically made using all the same material for the gums and the teeth, just dyed differently. Although this is definitely less expensive, it is also less natural-looking.

In a natural smile, your teeth and your gums are made of very different materials, so making them out of the same material in a denture can’t lead to a natural result. High-quality FOY® Dentures use ceramic teeth, very similar to the ceramic material we use for porcelain veneers, to give your teeth a natural luster.

Mass Produced

Another place where inexpensive dentures cut costs is in labor. One of the places they save on labor is on the customization of your individual teeth. Instead of making custom designs for the teeth, giving them individual character and personality, the teeth roll off an assembly line so they all look pretty much the same. When you smile you will reveal the same six teeth as every other person with traditional dentures.

Sometimes those teeth are going to be too big for your smile. Other times they might be too small. They may be too masculine or too feminine. You don’t have to want to reproduce your natural smile to benefit from customized teeth. You just have to want a smile that’s your own and no one else’s.


Lastly, there’s the big problem with low-quality dentures: how badly they fit. Most dentures aren’t designed to precisely fit your mouth–they’re designed to fit quickly so you don’t spend much time in the dental office. This tactic saves on more labor costs and allows a dentist to sell more mass-produced dentures. You might feel the poor fit of dentures, but everyone is certainly going to see it, too.

When dentures are poorly fitted, the midline of the dentures can be off to the side, throwing off the symmetry of your smile and your face. Symmetry is beauty, so this definitely matters. The dentures can also tilt off to one side. You might notice just a tiny slant at first, but as those plastic teeth wear down quickly, this will grow quickly. Soon the slant is very noticeable, even when you’re not smiling–your entire face will have gained a slant.

Whether you get dental implants to support them or not, you need high-quality dentures if you are looking for an attractive smile.

Experience The Difference of High-Quality Dentures: FOY® Dentures

When you invest in high-quality dentures, you can look forward to a wide range of benefits that you won’t find with traditional dentures.

Custom-Fit & Natural-Looking Results

One aspect that really separates high-quality dentures from low-quality is their custom-fit. Unlike traditional dentures, Fountain of Youth Dentures® are custom-made to fit your jaw, support your facial structure, and complement your face. The custom-fit not only feels more comfortable, more supportive, and more functional, but it helps your smile look more aesthetic. Your teeth will be just the right shape and size to give you a natural appearance.

High-Quality Materials That Last Longer

Another aspect that makes FOY® Dentures the clear choice for dentures is that they use high-quality materials, not acrylic like traditional dentures. FOY® Dentures use high-density PMMA. This material uses a special design to look just like natural gums by looking semi-translucent and showing small details like blood vessels. These high-quality materials help your smile look better and your results last longer. Traditional dentures typically last around five years before they need to be replaced. FOY® Dentures last significantly longer.

Comfortable & Secure

The one element that truly makes Fountain of Youth Dentures® unique is their neuromuscular approach. Traditional dentures simply exist to replace missing teeth. FOY® Dentures replace missing teeth and provide your facial features with the support they need that’s lost with missing teeth. The neuromuscular principles take the mouth’s muscles, bones, and nerves into account for their fit. The custom design provides you with the perfect fit that helps your dentures fit more securely. Most patients don’t even need adhesives to keep their dentures in place. 

When you chew with FOY ® Dentures, the pressure from chewing is applied to the jaw bone, not the gums like traditional dentures. This makes eating feel more comfortable and prevents denture sores from developing.

Facelift-Like Results

The last benefit of high-quality dentures that you won’t find with traditional dentures is the facelift-like results. With the neuromuscular approach, your facial features are once again receiving the support they need to prevent wrinkles around the mouth, and loose sagging skin under the chin and on the neck. With traditional dentures, your facial features receive no support. When you upgrade your dentures to Fountain of Youth Dentures®  you can expect to look years younger!
