We get it, you want to save time and money but at what cost?
We’ve seen some online ads offering cheap and quick dentures that you can make yourself, and we are here to tell you to save your money!
While it may seem like a good idea for a quick fix, here are reasons why you should avoid purchasing“ Make it yourself “Denture Kits online.
- You are not a professional. With all due respect, you have not been to an accredited school or have been trained in taking impressions of the mouth. If your impression is not 100% perfect the fitting surface of the denture will not fit you properly. This can cause the denture to move around, cause sores and make it difficult for you to eat and speak confidently.
It is also important to have your mouth and gums examined by a professional before having dentures made. They will be able to make sure any remaining teeth and your oral tissues are healthy and ready to have a denture sit upon them.
- One size does not fit all! The size of the tray that some companies offer to take your impressions has nothing to do with your weight as some people online may claim but, the size of your mouth. When you see a Denturist here at Minuk Denture Clinic, we have all the appropriate equipment that is required to obtain the optimal impression ensuring a properly fitted denture.
- You cannot see your denture before it is finished. Our Denturists offer you a “try-in”, which means that you will be able to see a replica of your denture that is set in wax. You will be able to pick and make changes to your teeth (size and colour), as well as checking your bite (a crucial step in making properly fitted dentures) before your denture is finalized.
Seeing our Denturists in person will allow you to explain your wants, needs, and expectations. Purchasing your kit online does not allow for that personal touch.
- There is no guarantee. Purchasing your dentures online does not allow for adjustments. Why mail your denture back and forth to have someone make minor adjustments when you can simply step into an office where all aspects are completed in one place? What about repairs? Is your denture covered by a warranty?
- Cheaper does not mean better! It is only natural to want to save some money in today’s day in age, especially if you are living on a budget. Going to a denture clinic in Winnipeg like ours, will not only give you quality materials but, an experience you can trust! We offer affordable payment plans for all budgets that will allow you to have a smile that you are proud of.
