3D Printed Lucitone Dentures

Conventionally made dentures have historically been a pain-point for many dental practices. Lengthy turnaround times and adjustments go hand-in-hand with dentures made the old-fashioned way, but digitally printed dentures will change all of that. Whether you take impressions conventionally or digitally, Great Impressions can make you a premium, 3d printed high-impact denture. Below is the process to make that happen.

Clinician: Place try-in(s) in patient's mouth and ensure correct fit, teeth positioning, bite, etc... If adjustments are needed, grind on monoblock or add composite for us to copy, or you can notate and take pictures. Take a new bite if occlusal adjustments are needed. 

 

Lab: If try-in is approved, the final denture will be fabricated. 

If adjustments are needed at try-in, additional appointments may be necessary
