Denture esthetics is the effect produced by a denture that affects beauty and attractiveness of a person. It is blending or combination of art and science of prosthodontics. The loss of oral structures primarily affects the appearance of the lower part of the face. The appearance of the entire lower half of the face depends on dentures in edentulous patients. Denture esthetics does not begin and end with selection of denture teeth, factors such as impression technique, occlusal plane, vertical dimension, and centric relation also significantly affect denture esthetics. The dentist must consider esthetic guidelines to achieve esthetics for complete denture.
