21. My mom is 95 and has had dentures since she was ~55
Edited on Sun Feb-21-10 05:34 PM by marzipanni
Her dentist made them to match her own teeth, even a little less than white (she smoked a bit of tobacco in those days) and not perfectly aligned. People my parents knew said they
thought these teeth were artfully done because they looked the same as the teeth she had since she was 11 or so! (I think that's when the last molars come in, other than wisdom teeth)
My MIL, on the other hand, is 85, and was just complaining about spending $3000.00 on getting her own teeth fixed.

I think it makes sense to get dentures, but, as others have said, find someone who makes natural looking well-fitting ones.
