Many people think that all dentures are the same. They think dentures must be uncomfortable, poorly fitting, unattractive, and barely functional for chewing. If that were the case, it would make sense to buy cheap dentures. 

However, the truth is that dentures can be very different. People in Minneapolis can choose cheap dentures, which, yes, can be as bad as you think. However, there are better alternatives. With the Denture Fountain of Youth®, Dentures Don’t Have To Look Like Dentures Anymore!® Not only that, but dentures can fit, function, and feel better than traditional dentures, too. Understanding the difference can help you choose the best dentures for you. Minneapolis denture dentist Dr. Kevin Bril can help you get this innovative and effective alternative to traditional dentures.

A Different Fit

One of the most important differences with the Denture Fountain of Youth® is the fitting process. Cheap dentures fit your gums. They come in a few sizes, and a denture dentist will take impressions of your gums to help the dentures of the closest size fit over your gums. They may not fit your mouth, though, being either too large or too small. 

Traditional dentures fit your mouth. In addition to an impression of your gums, a denture dentist will measure the size of your mouth and order an appropriate size of custom denture from the lab. 

The Denture Fountain of Youth®, though, fits your entire facial structure. Minneapolis denture dentist Dr. Bril won’t just take impressions of your gums and measure your mouth, he’ll look at your entire face. He’ll measure your jaws and the soft tissue of your face to find the right size denture to put your jaw muscles at rest and restore the youthful proportions of your face.

This level of fit makes your dentures more:

  • Comfortable
  • Secure
  • Functional
  • Attractive
  • Durable

Properly fitting dentures help your jaw muscle relax, so you’ll avoid symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorders (called TMJ or TMD). It also eliminates localized sore spots on your gums. 

Better fit helps your dentures stay in place when talking, eating, and laughing, making them more functional. Your dentures won’t click or whistle when you talk. You’ll be better able to chew, too, and you can enjoy foods you might have given up because of bad teeth. 

When your dentures are in place, they look more natural. They also deliver results something like a facelift, but more natural-looking, as we’ll discuss in more detail later. 

Finally, having balanced forces on your dentures makes them more durable. When the denture can bear the stresses of biting and chewing evenly, it reduces the wear and damage to the denture. It will last longer and be less likely to crack. 

Different Materials

The Denture Fountain of Youth® also benefits from higher quality materials than cheap or traditional dentures. Cheap dentures are all plastic, and cheap plastic, at that. Neither the teeth nor the gums look natural. Nor are they designed to last. 

Traditional dentures are also all plastic, but they are made to look more attractive and natural. The gums are reasonably convincing, but the teeth lack the luster of natural tooth enamel. They are slightly more durable, but they are also unlikely to last. 

The Denture Fountain of Youth®, though, uses a combination of plastic and ceramic to create an attractive, durable denture. The Denture Fountain of Youth® uses teeth made of advanced ceramics–some of the same used for porcelain veneers–for teeth that are durable, stain-resistant, and natural-looking. The base (gums) uses a high-density PMMA that is strong. It’s created with a layering approach and includes fibers to improve naturalism. The dense material also resists stains and odors, helping the dentures to last longer. 

A Different Design

The Denture Fountain of Youth ® also offers a distinctive design. Cheap dentures and traditional dentures typically offer the same smile, a generic version of the average smile modified to accommodate the differences in chewing with dentures vs. natural teeth. 

The Denture Fountain of Youth® lets you get a custom smile. You can choose to get a new smile designed according to the latest principles of cosmetic dentistry. You can also choose to replicate the smile of your youth. Each tooth is individually selected and placed, so you can have distinctive features of your smile included. 

Differences You Will See and Feel

When you get The Denture Fountain of Youth® from Minneapolis denture dentist Dr. Bril, you and everyone else will be able to tell the difference. You’ll enjoy comfortable dentures that let you bite and chew better than traditional dentures. You’ll love their durability and stain- and odor-resistance.  

Others will notice your beautiful smile, but they’ll also see the facial rejuvenation you experience thanks to the fit and design of these advanced dentures. You’ll see an improvement in many signs of facial aging, including:

  • Wrinkles and folds around the mouth
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Thin and sunken lips
  • Loose skin under the neck (called turkey neck or turkey wattle)
  • Jowls

Diminishing these signs of facial aging and improving your smile can make you look years, even decades, younger.
