The process of making your new dentures
All new dentures start from an impression of the mouth, we build the them from this impression to create your new smile. Impressions are taken using a material called alginate and subsequent impressions are taken with materials like P.V.C’s or rubbers.
Once we have a good quality impression of the mouth we will then find how the upper and lower jaws relate to each other. By knowing this, we can set some teeth to start creating your new smile. When we have made a trial set up of your denture, we can try it in and check your new smile for fit, function and aesthetics. If you are happy with the shape, shade and smile, we then make the finishing touches to your dentures. This process usually will take 3-6 weeks but with a little notice we can work to a quicker timeline.
It is important to note that most of the time a new denture will require some time to settle and may require some fine tuning. Be sure to return for check ups to have this done.
