Are Dentures the Answer to Helping You Look Younger?

If you’re like many people, when you think of dentures you may associate them with older people. The truth though is that dentures are not only helpful from a functional standpoint, but today’s high-quality dentures could actually help you look younger. They’re more natural than dentures of previous years, and the quality is higher than you think. Read on to learn more and then contact California Dental Group at (800) 407-0161 to set up your consultation.

Dentures help you look younger in a number of ways

The chances of losing a tooth increase dramatically after the age of 35. As people being to lose teeth, they may feel traumatized. In some cases, it may not be difficult to hide a missing tooth but when a front tooth is missing, or many teeth are missing, it becomes something you can no longer hide behind your hand. Whether you need partial dentures or full dentures, California Dental Group is here to help.

As you consider the ways that dentures can help you look younger, consider that your teeth do more than chew and bite – they actually fill out your mouth. If you lose them, you may deal with issues like sagging, which can give you the appearance of being gaunter and older than you are.

When you’re missing teeth, you may also see more lines and wrinkles around your teeth. Of course, smiling without teeth and showing only gums can also make you look and feel older. Dentures can solve most of these issues. First, they fill out your cheeks so that you don’t have that hollow look that’s associated with older patients.

Next, they help to stretch out the skin around your mouth. This can essentially smooth out some of those fine lines and wrinkles you’ve gotten used to around your mouth. Simply give you a full set of teeth can also boost your self-esteem, which can help you appear more attractive and more youthful.

Dentures can also make your life easier

In addition to improve the way you look and the way you feel about yourself, dentures can simply make your life easier. It doesn’t matter how long it’s been since you lost your teeth – you likely remember what it was like to eat any food you wanted with total confidence. If you’re currently eating only liquids or mushy foods, then dentures can certainly help.

Being able to eat what you want isn’t just a pleasant experience – it’s essential for your health. After all, it’s virtually impossible to get all the nutrients you need if you’re limited in what you can eat. This gets more and more important the older you get.

There may be other options

In addition to dentures, you may have other options like dental implants. The best way to find out what might work best for you is to visit California Dental Group.
