Second opinions regarding dentures/crowns...?

This may be a dumb question, but I need to ask... is it wrong to get a second opinion as far as dentists go?

After fighting dental problems most of my life (and not due to a lack of care), I was told by my dentist a few days ago that I need the rest of my top teeth pulled and should get an upper denture. I am very afraid of doing this, but I can't afford implants and may not have a choice. I have no molars up top at all and six teeth left in the front. They still look good to me, but I'm no dental expert...

I'm just nervous and don't know what to do... any suggestions would certainly be appreciated! Thank you!!
