At most dental offices, it takes weeks, sometimes months, to make a new denture from start to finish. An impression is taken and mailed or sent to an outside lab. The lab may have the case for a couple of weeks before the first step is completed. Then, the case is sent back to the dentist. The dentist tries in what was done by a laboratory technician. The case then goes back to the lab for the next step. This usually occurs three times for most denture cases. If anything goes wrong in these steps, an extra visit is needed and more time passes until the case is completed.
This does not occur at Tempe Dental Care. If someone needs their denture in a day it can be accomplished. The patient arrives early in the day. Impressions are taken and they are sent to our lab located in our office. The denture fabrication starts immediately and is ready for delivery that same day.
