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.
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.
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.
