The anterior are selected according to the individual shape of the head and gender. The shade of the teeth are discussed with the patient to their individual taste and preference. The size of the teeth will depend upon the size of your mouth and jaw, and how your upper and lower jaws come together when you bite down. If you liked the way your natural teeth looked, bring in a photograph of you smiling with your natural teeth.

At this appointment we invite clients to bring friends and/or loved ones to get feedback on the esthetics of the dentures. At this point we are still able to change and adjust the denture to the clients specifications on how it looks. We will only finish the dentures when both client and ptractisioner are completely satisfied with the wax set up. Then the denture is processed and finished.
