I am disappointed with my snap-on denture. 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. They say they will do what they can to make sure I am satisfied. But I have no confidence in them. 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. Lenore
We are sorry to hear about your experience with your snap-on denture. Based on what you described, your current dentist will not be able to improve it. 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 do not succeed, schedule a consultation with an advanced cosmetic dentist to discuss your options.
