Partial denture on two front teeth
i am going to the dentist to get a partial denture on my two front teeth, but im afraid i just wont look natural.should i have the front four teeth pulled out so that i dont look as if i have two chicklets for teeth? will it look more natural will it for all four front teeth?
No, you'll just have four chicklets. It can be a challenge to make teeth match, but without knowing the specifics I would caution you that sacrificing two more teeth probably won't help.
