(only full dentures can be duplicated)
A duplicate denture simply means that we make a replica of your current denture. Duplicate dentures are not normally as strong as brand new dentures fabricated with stronger materials. They can function effectively as backups in the event that your main dentures are broken and need to be repaired. The tooth shade in the duplicate dentures will appear as close as we can make them look to your original (we cannot duplicate years of custom staining), but are not intended to be worn as a permanent replacements. If you choose to have duplicate dentures fabricated, you can also choose to have the teeth shade whitened during this process- at no extra cost!! Many people choose to have their broken dentures repaired and then have duplicate dentures fabricated so that they have backups in case of future denture breakage.
Partial dentures cannot be duplicated.
