Denture Rebase & Repairs Chapel Hill NC

When your denture’s teeth are still in good shape and haven’t worn down in contrast to the base material, rebasing might be advised. Without changing the denture teeth, rebasing involves replacing the complete acrylic denture base to create a sturdy denture. If your denture is old or broken, a rebase may be necessary. Rebases and relinings are quite similar; the difference is that rebases completely replace the pink-acrylic denture base material rather than simply the lining.

Possible reasons for the rebase procedure include:

  • Broken or damaged denture
  • Weakened or damaged denture base
  • Replacement of an immediate denture
