Standard Dentures vs. Premium or Precision Dentures

Standard Dentures vs. Premium or Precision Dentures

Dentures are made with a wide variety of composite materials. The teeth used to make dentures come in different shapes, sizes and degrees of hardness. Standard Dentures are made from a limited selection of teeth, molds, materials and shades. The teeth used in the fabrication of Standard Dentures tend to wear down faster and need to be replaced more often than the ones used to make Precision or Premium Dentures. Even though Standard Dentures are made to fit comfortably and function acceptably they are made using physiological averages with a limited number of adjustments being made during fabrication.

Precision Dentures are made with superior materials and with more advanced technology which enables your Denturist to make finer adjustments while fabricating your dentures. Precision Dentures require taking a wider range of accurate measurements of your oral anatomy. The natural shape of your jaw line, the colour of your eyes, eyeglasses and hair colour are also considered. The advanced fabrication techniques and superior materials used in making Precision Dentures lead to a more natural looking, better fitting and longer lasting denture. Ask your Denturist what a difference Precision Dentures can make to your oral health and appearance.
