How precision dentures are made
At Impressions Dental Studio, we use only the best quality materials. The teeth we use are made from high quality cross-linked and double cross-linked acrylics that resist excessive wear, stains, chips, and breakage. This quality material will maintain the natural shape of the teeth so that proper cutting and chewing of desired foods can be maintained for longer.
This is a total system of special materials, processing, techniques and clinical jaw measurements used to replicate your natural function as closely as possible.

Frequently asked questions
What is the difference between a standard and precision denture?
There are a number of differences between standard and precision dentures. Although both types of dentures are effective solutions to missing teeth, precision dentures are generally harder and stronger and tend to last longer than standard dentures. Precision dentures also look more natural than standard dentures because they are designed to closely replicate the appearance of your natural teeth. Precision dentures are made by means of a different process to standard dentures, and are designed to fit the mouth with a greater level of accuracy. For this reason, precision dentures are very well-fitting and comfortable. Precision dentures also tend to be more stain-resistant than standard dentures because of the materials they are made from.
Will precision dentures change my appearance?
By replacing missing teeth, you can expect your smile, as well as your overall facial appearance, to improve. Dentures replace missing natural teeth and provide support to your facial muscles, preventing sagging and restoring oral functions like eating and speaking. If you choose to have precision dentures placed, your dentist will be able to match the colour and shape of your prosthetic teeth to your natural teeth, so you can enjoy a healthy and natural-looking smile.
How should I take of my mouth when wearing dentures?
Your oral health is extremely important when you have dentures. We recommend that you brush your gums, tongue and palate twice a day in order to remove plaque and food particles. This will also help to promote blood circulation in your mouth. If you have any remaining natural teeth, be sure to brush them thoroughly every day to prevent oral health issues such as decay and gum disease that can lead to further tooth loss.
Why is it important to replace missing teeth?
There are a number of health benefits to replacing missing teeth. Leaving gaps in your mouth can cause your remaining teeth to shift out of place, which can lead to a range of issues. A lack of teeth can also reduce the density of your jaw bone because it is not longer stimulated enough. This, in turn, can lead to a shrinking jaw line, as well as sagging facial muscles. If you are missing teeth, we recommend that you come in and see us. We offer a number of treatment options and will advise you on the best procedure for your needs.
