In brief: It depends

On an individual's circumstances, for example how many teeth are missing, etc.
Changes in facial appearance are common with dental extractions, especially front teeth. See a dentist first to see what they can offer.

In brief: Replacement

If after removal of teeth there is achange in facial appearance, replacement of the missing structures should be done to restore lip and cheek architecture.
