Dentures that look like my natural teeth???

So I'm 29 and need dentures. Everyone says try to save your natural teeth. But I need root canals in almost every tooth in my mouth and my insurance won't cover it. I literally just have front teeth, all of my back teeth were pulled throughout the yrs. my front teeth are looking ok but not up close. The teeth that I do have kill me all of the time. I'm so done with tooth pain it isn't even funny. Although I wish I could save my teeth it really isn't an option so please don't suggest it. My question is: can I have dentures made to look exactly like my natural teeth? I was told it could be done by a dentist I saw months ago but there I would have to wait a month for them to come in and that's a no go. I cannot be without teeth. My new dentist says it can't be done that they will select teeth that resemble the shape of mine. My problem is that I do not want the perfect straight typical old people denture. I want them to look like mine. Mine are beautiful and a tad crooked and still in great enough shape to make a cast. Is this possible??? I just don't want people to know I have dentures and I really do not want to look different.

Mindy, I know you want this done like yesterday...i understand. So if you have dental insurance, take a breather and relax a bit. Do you have a dentist yet? If no, look at the dentist that take your plan. Question them . Most usually have ready a folder or even a website that explains what they do. There will be reviews. If you go to One and like don't commit just yet. Ask people in waiting room if you go to free consultation. They have to explain what they do, and they must understand what you want. I would definitely size up the dentist to see if you like them first. Look up online about dentures and how they look. I think that since you are emotionally drained, you should just be ok that you be decided to do this and now you find out what can be done. If you don't have dentist yet, you are worried about what may not happen . I'm sorry you are going through this. Look up dentists tonight in your area...see if they have reviews. I know trust is big issue. I think that this is going to work out for you.

Mindy i was 27 when I got dentures! I went without or 3 yrs cause I thought they were really expensive! Well...to my surprise they weren't. I took a picture of myself with me when I had teeth didn't really no if it would help! Come to find out it was a the best idea ever. I have rabbit teeth in front & they made them perfectly in the ont just like my own. But, everyone out there plz understand ur jaw teeth will ever look the same. They r shorter than regular teeth but no one can tell! My teeth r called "sure fit" & I got them at Affordable Dentures! I only paid 250 17 yrs ago but don't fret cuz my niece got here last yr for 750. If I at 8am be fitted & go back that evening & pick them up! I no what u mean about he Mr..ed teeth, come on everybody u no u have seen them! First don't get those really bite teeth everybody knows they are fake unless u r a movie star! Honestly the brighter they r the more fake they look! Here's a tip so u don't have to get a realignment if u can wait at least 2weeks before u get the impressions ur swelling will be down & ur teeth will fit better! They say to put them on top of ur stitches he'll naw! For one its horribly painful & u can never emotionally get over that so u always feel they don't fit right! Last tip for everyone- if u don't want to use 'll that port glue crap, then listen up get ur favorite hard my pepper mmints, jolly ranchers, butterscotch. They way u move that candy in ur mouth will help u control ur teeth. Sweety, if u put them in and they don't look or feel right say something the then don't wait! I no how u feel I was so afraid & ashamed to have to get dentures. I was gonna wear em if they killed me! I can eat anything but an apple I have to cut those up. I can chew gum! Really Wrigley mentos all kinds! Good luck Mindy can't wait to see the results

I was worried about my teeth looking “fake”. I was pleasantly surprised at the fact they don’t. Other than my wife, and you guys of course, no one knows I’ve had this done. In 2 weeks no one noticed. Guess gals teeth don’t look so false anymore.
That said, it is definitely different and takes getting used to. Many ups. Many downs. But after 15 days I’m having way more ups. Keep us posted. Do what’s right for your health.
