When many teeth are to be removed and the long-term look and fit of your denture aesthetics is more of a concern, you may opt for a temporary denture first. This is a lower cost denture using lower quality materials and techniques to give a suitable denture for short-term wear of about a year. The temporary denture can allow you to test a new look with a different tooth colour, shape or arrangement. The bone and gums left behind can heal and shrink very dramatically making your first denture very difficult to refit when you fully heal. Once your gums heal we have the ability to make a higher quality denture by using more accurate impression techniques, jaw measurements, and trying teeth in wax in the mouth to arrange them with more control and your approval and input. For peace of mind, a temporary denture also makes a good back-up if you lose or break a definitive denture.
