I waited 2 months for dentures and now that I have them they are off center. Not a little off center, like a half to ¾ of a tooth off center. It looks like I have my 2 front teeth on the side of my mouth. I knew they were off when I left the office. I shouldn’t have left the office like that but I went to a cheap dentures place. The dentist there told me not to worry that they will fix them. I drove straight to my sister’s house so she could see my dentures and she burst out laughing, then when she saw my face, she started crying with me. I am still in tears every time I have to put them on. Emotionally, I can’t handle another mishap with these dentures. I have too many personal health problems and health problems with family members to let dentures make me have a nervous breakdown. I need some direction. I can’t thank you enough. Linda
Linda – We are truly sorry to hear about your experience. We understand the range of emotions, from anger to embarrassment, that you are feeling.
Our advice to you is to find an experienced, accredited cosmetic dentist to correct the situation—and only a cosmetic dentist. Please be aware that you will likely need a new set of dentures. Have two or three consultations with cosmetic dentists to find one with whom you are comfortable.
The new dentist may help you work with the office from which you received your current dentures. Perhaps you can in some way be compensated for your trouble. Take a deep breath, be patient, and this will really work out. You will be thrilled that you made the effort to have a cosmetic dentist restore your smile.
