I do not want dentures, but I have lost so many teeth that I will need them soon. I still consider myself young at 52, so I prefer to do something different with my denture teeth. Can I get the front two denture teeth in all gold or get the teeth trimmed in gold? Thank you, Cameron, from Carson City, NV
Thank you for your question.
Can You Get Gold Denture Teeth?
Yes, you can get gold denture teeth. A dentist will try to preserve your natural teeth, if possible, but if you need dentures, you can request gold teeth or teeth trimmed in gold. Your dentist will ask you for details to ensure the result is what you want. If you have a photo as an example of your preference, show it to your dentist.
What Are Gold Window Teeth?
Gold window teeth or gold open-face teeth are trimmed in gold with a natural tooth shade in the middle. Your dentist will ask how many denture teeth you want with gold trim and how many should remain untouched.
How Much Do Gold Denture Teeth Cost?
The cost of gold denture teeth depends on several factors, including:
- Quality of denture teeth
- Whether you choose gold-trimmed or all-gold teeth
- Your dentist’s fees and where you live in the U.S.
How Long Will It Take to Get a New Denture?
It takes four to six appointments to get a new denture. The process can include the following:
- A consultation
- An exam and x-rays
- Tooth extraction
- Impressions of your mouth
- A wax occlusal rim to measure the relationship between your upper and lower jaw
- Register your bite
- A wax try-in
- Denture fabrication at a dental laboratory
- Try-in and adjustments
Living with Dentures
Adjusting to eating, speaking, and living with dentures takes time. Try to be patient and reasonable and give yourself a few weeks to become more comfortable with the denture fit. Your dentist may speak with you about using dental implants to stabilize and improve the function of your denture.
Schedule a consultation with an advanced cosmetic dentist to get quality, natural-looking dentures that fit well.
