What Are Cosmetic Dentures?
Cosmetic dentures are designed to give patients a more youthful appearance. This procedure can give the same benefits and results as a facelift for many patients. You may have seen how many patients with conventional dentures have a sunken in face and sagging neck. When support to the face is restored, wrinkles decrease or become unnoticeable and in some cases go away completely. The new facial support can also give a more youthful appearance to the neck.
Cosmetic dentures create a more natural facial contour. This often makes the patient look years younger without the need for costly and painful surgery. The new youthful appearance builds self-confidence that was once lost.

Why does my face look sunken in with conventional dentures?
When the teeth are removed, the bone that holds the teeth resorbs and melts away. Dentures that don’t fit well can make the bone damage worse and accelerate the loss of bone. The bone resorbs away from the face and creates the sunken in appearance that many people with dentures show. Conventional dentures are created to follow the new position of the bone. Therefore, the teeth are not set out as far. The result is less support for the face, causing the cheeks to sink in.
Why does my lower jaw appear to stick out further than it used to when I was younger?
As dentures wear down with time, the lower jaw closes too far. This makes the chin stick out and the face to sink in further. With time, this creates more problems with the dentures and can significant facial pain. The new jaw relationship can cause damage to the joints. Cosmetic dentures restore the proper relationship of the jaws and can eliminate pain with most people.
