I’ve had dentures for about 12 years. When I first got them, I was pretty satisfied with their appearance. But, now, with the explosion of cosmetic dentistry I feel my teeth look dated. Is there a way a cosmetic dentist can spruce them up to look more attractive?

There are things they can do to your dentures to adjust their fit. But, what you’re wanting is essentially a denture makeover. That requires you to get a new set of dentures.
If you want them to be functional AND beautiful, then you’ll need to be sure to go to an excellent cosmetic dentist. An artistic cosmetic dentist can give you stunning dentures. I’d highly suggest seeing someone who is accredited with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
What’s working in your favor is the length of time you’ve had your dentures. Normally, around the ten year mark, dental insurance will at least partially cover a new set of dentures.
