Enigma Cosmetic Dentures
Natural teeth consist of dentine covered with a translucent enamel layer that gives depth to the tooth colour. Enigma teeth have a similar structure with a darker dentine covered with an enamel layer that is especially visible at the tip. The blue white opalescence reproduces the effect of that different structure. Natural teeth brighten in strong sunshine and are still white under disco lighting. Many artificial teeth only do this weakly but the Enigma enamel fluoresces to mimic nature. The teeth next to the front teeth are smaller, lighter and have greater opalescence, whereas the eye or canine teeth are darker. Using these Enigma Teeth will add vitality and make the mouth look three dimensional – just like your natural teeth.
In order to achieve a totally natural appearance it is important to consider the appearance of the gums as well as the teeth. Natural gums are frequently whitish near the teeth and the tissue varies in colour from a pink to a reddish colour. The natural gum colour of many ethnic groups has a brownish rather than pinkish hue. Within the Enigma Cosmetic Denture System are a range tools for individual colouring of the base to harmonize with your natural gums. Examples are shown in the photos opposite.
The goal of cosmetic dentures is too replace what is missing from the mouth and ensure natural looking dentures that enable the wearer to talk, smile, and eat with confidence.
