At Smile Bright Dentures, we’re with you every step of the way! Here are a few tips to help you prepare for your upcoming appointment.
We recommend you arrive 10 minutes prior to your appointment in order to complete all of the necessary patient information forms.
What to Bring
If you wear dentures, please bring them with you to the appointment. We will need to know information regarding insurance, medical history, and medication in order to determine the best course of treatment.
Treatment Plan Options
The denturist will preform an initial consultation and exam, discussing your best options moving forward. Once complete, the office manager or denturist will discuss treatment options including cost, payment, and dental insurance. In most instances, we can begin treatment immediately!
If you currently wear dentures and are in need of a new pair, chances are we can begin the process at the first appointment. For a complete set of new dentures, it typically takes 2-3 weeks from initial consultation to completion. In most cases, you will need 4 easy appointments.
- Impression – An impression is taken of your mouth, gums, or teeth. Usually the denturist can combine this appointment with your initial consultation.
- Bite Registration – You will set the bite of your denture at this appointment. Your teeth size and shade will also be determined.
- Try in With Teeth (Pre-Denture) – In this appointment, you will try in the pre-finished denture to ensure it looks and feels natural. If you still have teeth and are unable to try in the denture, you can view the pre-finished model to confirm it is to your liking.
- Delivery – The denture is yours for the taking. Enjoy your rejuvenated smile!
