Hello all. I am a 43 old female living in the south. Recently I had to have all my teeth removed due to excessive acid reflux eating away at them.
My teeth were one of my nicest qualities in my 30s and I received many compliments on them. The dentist tells me that I will not be able to support implants but that full dentures should be no problem. Another Dentist tells me that before getting dentures I should really make sure to get my acid reflux in check because even now the acid reflux could damage dentures.
I want to do this right. To me, dentures are more important than a new car and I've been saving up. I've seen ads for contoured and hand painted dentures with gums that look very realistic. Our family has a genetically passed on trait/ part in our front teeth and was hoping to ask the Dentist if I could get that.(nothing too wide of course.)
I have shopped online and for every dental website I visit ,half do not show their own work with before and after. One in particular showed 4 before /after shots and unfortunately 2 out of the 4 were awful looking afters with the other two being acceptable. Seems they were batting 50/50.
I want to have input.
