I would love to actually say this to someone in an appropriate situation.... someday!

When someone gets false teeth, I believe

Or showing a child their new adult teeth growing in, perhaps.

Could you also use 'ці' in this sentence?

No, you cannot translate "These are your new teeth!" word by word into Ukrainian. "Ці ваші нові зуби" is a phrase ("These teeth of yours") that requires a predicate to become a full sentence. For example, "Ці ваші нові зуби дуже гарні" ("These new teeth of yours are very nice"). Both "These are your new teeth!" and "It is your new teeth!" are translated as "Це ваші нові зуби!" "Це" is the Ukrainian equivalent of the English dummy "it."

And now we'd all like to know...what's the common Ukrainian word for false teeth/dentures?
