A dream about wearing false teeth can symbolize insecurity or fear of aging and loss. Of course, dream interpretations are seldom that simple.

It may reflect concerns about your self-image or anxieties about how others perceive you. On the other hand, seeing someone else using false teeth could suggest that you feel someone in your life is not being genuine or truthful. It could also indicate that you're struggling to accept changes in someone else's appearance or behavior. Both scenarios highlight a focus on authenticity, appearance, and perception.

False teeth is a very complex and intriguing dream experience to get one's head around. To really say without any doubts, I would need to really dig deep into the dreamer's life story and circumstances.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of wearing false teeth may indeed be a manifestation of the unconscious fear of aging, but it can also represent a Freudian 'oral fixation', hinting at unresolved issues from early developmental stages.

Likewise — It may symbolize a desire for nurturance or a sense of being 'fed' emotionally. Observing someone else using false teeth, however, could be a projection of your own anxieties about authenticity onto others. It may also signify your unconscious perception of others as deceitful or unreliable. In both instances, the dreamer is grappling with issues of trust, authenticity, and self-perception, reflecting the complex interplay of the id, ego, and superego in the dream state.0

Dreaming of wearing false teeth can be a spiritual message about embracing change and transformation. It may symbolize a need to let go of old habits or beliefs that no longer serve you. This dream could also be a call to express your truth more fully, as teeth are associated with communication. Seeing someone else using false teeth, on the other hand, might suggest a spiritual lesson about discernment. It could be a sign that you need to be more careful about who you trust or a reminder to look beyond appearances to find the truth. Both dreams are ultimately about authenticity and personal growth.
