Is it possible to use a prosthesis with the All on 4 that would not have fake gums? What are gumless prosthesis called?

Now you can get multiple single implants placed to replace missing or unrestorable teeth that need to be extracted. And this will definitely be an option for you, but the All on 4 will probably not be a good option for you. If you are desiring to have that tooth like feel in your mouth.
However, the all on 4 works really well and the results are amazing. You just need to know what you want and ensure that your doctor does as well, so he can deliver what you are desiring.
Thank you for your question. Regarding the situation that you are describing, there are anatomical variables that need to be considered when trying to obtain the type of goal you are looking for. Unfortunately if you have sustained a big amount of bone loss because of gum disease or missing teeth, it becomes more difficult to give you this type of therapy. Although, with today's technology we can grow both bone and soft tissue and thus get closer to the ultimate treatment goal you're seeking. These goals will require additional surgical procedures to augment the bone and soft tissue. I would recommend that you review your ideas with a periodontist. Good luck!
Alternative to All on 4
I would recommend that you ask to see before and after pictures of previous work your doctor's lab have made so that you can have a better idea of the materials and esthetics of each restoration.

If you are considering "No pink" the Acrylic (Denture tooth) version is not generally an option. You would have to consider a Zirconia or Porcelain fused to metal bridge. (Typically, more complex to plan clinically and fabricate in the laboratory)
As with all information, seek consultation in person with a dental professional, prior to deciding on any treatment.
Can the All-on-4 procedure be done without fake gums?
I hope you found this information to be helpful,
ALL ON 4 , without fake gum
and this will moderate the aesthetical layout, of the teeth,
a smile design will be the best option for you,
so you will know what would be the best option of the final work,
it can be a big change in shape, size and color.
You will love your knew smile.
All on four without gums
During my consults I show which type of teeth I envision your smile to look like. Your bone levels and smile show me this. Regular sized teeth, longer teeth, or teeth and gums. Screw vs cement, and number of implants is discussed. We talk about the teeth materials i recommend for your particular case; resin, zirconium or porcelain. Also, their pros and cons. The options do not change the fee. I have many patient example pictures on my facebook, Victor Sanz DDS.
You should ask these questions to the doctors you are having consultations with. Ask to see pictures of their work and discuss what they envision you with. This way you know what you are getting and are happy with your end result. Good Luck.
All on four gumless
Usually are attached to implants as any other common bridge screw retained or cemented over abutment but it takes more appointments and its a longer procedure than having all on four dentures.
By way it needs to be evaluated with your doctor as there is no picture to know the actual status, the way the implants are being placed or angulation of them or the status of your gums/periodontal bone right now.
