Will I Need New Dentures If I Get Cosmetic Surgery On My Face?

I have implant dentures so I am very happy with my smile. What I am not happy with is my face. This October I am going to have a few consultations with cosmetic surgeons. I know that teeth affect the position of your lips and cheeks. Will I need new dentures if I get cosmetic surgery on my face? Lynn

Depending on your case, your dentures may need to be adjusted. Consult with your plastic surgeon and your dentist to ensure that you face and your smile complement each other.
