We’ve talked already about how the teeth make quality dentures more attractive, but what about the base, which mimics your natural gums? How do we achieve a more attractive denture base? With an essential understanding of the cosmetics of your smile, great care, and the proper materials.
Attractive gums are an essential part of an attractive smile, but even though people think more about the teeth. Gums have several factors that make them attractive: proper proportions, proper shape, and proper coloration.
Proper proportions mean that your teeth and gums should have a good relationship. Your teeth shouldn’t be too long or too short.
Your gums should have a proper scalloped appearance that is somewhat regular, but not too regular. If it’s too irregular, your gums look unhealthy–they might appear swollen or receding. If it’s too regular, your dentures might look fake.
Finally, coloration should indicate that your gums are healthy and should be appropriate to your other coloration, including skin, lips, tongue,and your natural gum tissue.
A proper proportion of your teeth and gums is vital to an attractive appearance. Quality dentures are made with using the best principles of modern cosmetic dentistry. The best dentists in the world have looked at how your gum tissue should compare to your teeth proportions, and when we’re making your dentures, we seek to reproduce those proportions.
As we talked about with your denture teeth, we approach your denture base to demonstrate an individual character for your smile. As the individual teeth are placed in the denture, each with their own unique character, so, too, are your gums crafted with specific characteristics around each of the teeth. There are some natural trends that occur in your teeth, such as the canines having a slightly higher gum line than your other teeth. But we also consider ways to make your smile your smile, deviating from the norm in minor, attractive ways. You will get a unique gum line that reflects your personality.
Economy dentures come with a relatively small number of colors that they can be made in. These colors may or may not match your natural gum color. With quality dentures, the color of your denture base is precisely matched the natural coloration of your gums, so they will go well with your lips, tongue, and face.
Economy dentures often have a flat, plastic luster to them. This is a giveaway that you’re wearing dentures. But quality dentures are made with a special layering technique that gives them translucency and depth like natural gum tissues have.
Quality dentures are designed to look natural, including not just the teeth, but also the denture base. If you are looking for the most attractive dentures in the Philadelphia area, we can help. Please call for an appointment with a denture dentist at Dental Excellence of Blue Bell.
