Dentures are an important part of many people’s lives; if they are missing teeth, need a tooth extraction, or struggle with severe tooth decay, dentures may be the right option for them.

The process of how they’re made is surprisingly complex, and there are a few different steps involved.

In this blog post, we’ll take a look at how dentures are made and what goes into the process. We’ll also touch on some of the common misconceptions about dentures.

Whether you need partial dentures, complete dentures, or even an immediate denture. Read on to learn how the magic happens.


Denture-Making Process

Your prosthetists will take special impressions of your mouth to create custom-made dentures that give you a perfect fit. Usually, the process for making such false teeth includes the following steps:




Creating a customised set of denture teeth requires careful thought, as well as exacting attention to detail. The first step in this process is taking an impression of the patient’s mouth:

  1. By creating a cast in this way, the prosthetists can ensure that their dentures will fit perfectly and provide optimum comfort for the wearer.
  2. Once the mould is taken and any other relevant information is gathered, the crafting process can begin.


Model of The Teeth

After an impression of the patient’s dentures is taken, a model of their natural teeth is then created. This constructed form is an exact replica of their dentures and allows prosthetists to complete procedures such as fitting dentures and adjusting individual teeth more precisely.

The model also provides prosthetists with insight into underlying issues that can be difficult to diagnose without having a visual representation of the dentures themselves. All in all, this step plays a crucial role in producing quality dentures for patients who rely on them for comfort and functionality.


The Prosthetist Carves The Wax

The technician shapes and carefully carves the wax model, creating a replica of your gums which will eventually be used to craft your custom dentures.


Dentures Are Set In A Flask

The technician secures the dentures in a flask, which acts as an enclosure where additional plaster is added to maintain their shape.


Casting Dentures Using CAD/CAM Technology

Considering that acrylic is not as hard as porcelain, so it won’t damage natural teeth, it’s a good option to use to create bridges or partials. So, the prosthetist carefully crafts the dentures from high-grade acrylic resin, making sure that each denture has a form that corresponds to the patient’s overall mouth shape as well as their individual teeth size, length, and position.

The finished acrylic dentures are then tested by having the patient wear them over several sessions, with any adjustments being made before they are declared ready for use.


Finally, the dentures are polished and ready to be worn!

Once we’ve got all the teeth on, it still looks a little bit rough, so the technician will trim off any excess acrylic from the dentures and then use pumice to give them a smooth, polished finish. It will be a welcome change to see the patient’s confident new look after wearing dentures on their next visit!
