I am disappointed with my snap-on denture. Can I get the denture teeth replaced? The implants fit well, but the denture teeth look fake, big, and bulky. I got the denture from a place that says I cannot get a refund. Is there any way to take the denture to another dentist to do something about the denture teeth? I am embarrassed to smile with this denture. I was looking forward to my denture not falling out, but now I do not mind if it falls out and crashes to the floor. Please excuse my rant. I do need some practical advice. Thank you. Lena J.
We are sorry to hear about your experience with your snap-on denture. Your current dentist cannot improve your denture based on what you described. Most dentists do not have the artistic talent to create a natural-looking denture. And to think that the place you visited refuses to give refunds. It sounds like they know that their work does not look natural.
Dentures from a Cosmetic Dentist
Advanced cosmetic dentists take several steps to ensure your denture fits your facial features and fits well in your mouth:
- Talk with you about the look you want for your new smile
- Take preliminary impressions of your mouth
- Make a custom tray that fits your mouth only
- Make a wax model for you to try in your mouth
- Use high-quality or premium denture teeth that look real
Although you have no refund for your dentures, you can ask your dentist about replacing the denture teeth or the entire denture. If you cannot get a new denture from your dentist, consult an advanced cosmetic dentist to discuss your options. Depending on the denture condition and quality, a skilled prosthodontist may be able to use your denture base and replace the teeth, or you may need a new denture.
