I just got dentures. I am not happy. They look like those kind of fake teeth you see on skeletons in a classroom. I heard they could be uncomfortable, but I thought they’d at least look like real teeth. Is there any way to make them look better?

The problem isn’t with the dentures. The problem is with your dentist. Though dentures aren’t as ideal a treatment as dental implants, they can still give you a functional smile that looks beautiful.
My suggestion is you go back to your dentist and tell him how unhappy you are with them. Hopefully he’ll be willing to try again and make you some better ones. When done by an artistic dentist, they can look just like you have your own natural teeth.
