I’m trying to decide between dentures and dental implants. Dentures are much less expensive so it got me wondering if the dentures look as good as the implants. Can you give me a heads up?
How they look does not depend on whether or not they are dentures or dental implants. It depends on the dentist you use. You’ll need to find a great cosmetic dentist with both technical skill AND artistry. The best way to do that is to find a dentist who is accredited with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry in your area.
That issue aside. There are big differences between dentures and implants. Implants are secured to your jawbone. Dentures just sit on top of the ridge. They will move. They will sometimes fall out. They will decrease your chewing capacity.
I’d talk to a hightly qualified dentist about both and weigh your options before making a decision.
