Is it just me, or are these teeth incredibly small AND not straight??? I paid wayyyy too much money to run around with my dentures crooked and pointing inwards. Ugh. I see all the beautiful smiles everyone is posting and then I see mine and just want to cry.....

Hello Mary, your photo of your denture look just like your original to me, your original teeth look so much whiter then the dentures and the palette of the dentures look to thick.

Mary were ur natural teeth kinda like that? Sum dentists try to match ur original teeth as best they can. The 1 side looks kinda crooked but in my opinion dentures that aren't perfect and perfectly shaped teeth look the most natural. But the actual denture not the teeth part but the rest looks really tall and thick?

But Mary if ur not satisfied u need to speak up to ur dentist. We all pay a crap load if $ for the dentures and we should get what we pay for and what we want. And if they r ur immediates make sure when u get ur perms to tell them what u want changed. I just got my last soft reline yesterday so I will b getting my perms in December. And my dentist told me between now and then to really look and think about any changes I want if any on my perm set.

Insist on what you like.  I actually think some slight imperfections can make a denture look more natural.  I'll shut up now.  I'm a DUDE!  (Not THE DUDE Melanie! LOL)
