Are your worn, cracked or missing teeth making you look significantly older than you actually are? While advancing in age is a wonderful accomplishment that offers several perks, that doesn't mean that you want to look older than you actually are. Thankfully, Dr. Bruce R. Schechter, D.D.S. provides a family dentistry in Milford, CT option that's worth getting excited about: dentures.

While dentures have received a poor reputation in the past, today's new and improved dentures not only help you look amazing, but they can even shave years off of your appearance. Here's how.

1. Dentures Restore Your Beautiful Smile

It's difficult to look and feel your best when you have cracked, worn or missing teeth. While people of any age can lose teeth, tooth loss is often associated with older people, which means that if you have missing teeth, you'll automatically look older than you really are. A simple pair of dentures from a Milford, CT family dentistry professional can make a world of difference to your perceived age.

2. Dentures Support Your Face

Your teeth don't just help you eat and talk; they help support your facial muscles as well. Without teeth, your facial muscles have no support and they begin to sag, causing fine lines and wrinkles. A quality pair of dentures can give your face the support that it needs to look youthful and vibrant once again.

3. Dentures Help Fill in Your Gums

As people age, their gums gradually shrink over time. If left untreated, this can result in a mouth that looks small, puckered and shriveled. Thankfully, dentures give the appearance of increased gum tissue, which results in a beautiful, youthful smile.

If your smile is adding years to your appearance, family dentistry in Milford, CT is a great way to change that. All it takes is a pair of dentures to improve your smile, improve your quality of life and take years off of your appearance. Visit Dr. Schechter for a pair of custom-fit dentures today. You'll be glad you did.
