Denture Fabrication

The fabrication of your dentures involves several appointments over four to five weeks during which impressions of your mouth will be taken and we will ask for your input regarding the fit and appearance of your prosthesis. When the teeth are set in soft wax, you will have the opportunity to preview and make any changes you desire as to the teeth color, shape, size, and arrangement prior to the prosthesis being completed for delivery to you.

Denture Rebasing/Repairs


A denture specialist repairing denturesRebasing may be recommended when the teeth of your denture are still in good condition and have not worn out in comparison to the denture base material. Rebasing is the process of replacing the entire acrylic denture base providing a stable denture without replacing the denture teeth. A rebase for a denture may be required if your denture is old or is cracked. A rebase is very similar to relining, the difference being that, a rebase replaces all the pink-acrylic denture base material instead of just the lining.

Reasons for the Rebase Procedure May Include:

  • Broken or damaged denture
  • Weakened or old pink denture base
  • Replacement of an immediate denture


A variety of circumstances can lead to a damaged denture and should be addressed immediately. Repairs restore a fractured or damaged denture close to its original condition. Dr. Hoffman can often provide denture repair procedures on a same day basis. Dr. Hoffman will advise you of the condition of your denture and will recommend steps needed in preventing further breakage.
