Her 6 months she said "I think" is May and she will have another set made. I feel sorry for her because both those dentures look fake. She told me she asked about having space put in and the denture man told her the teeth would fall out. I am hoping in May she will be happy and healed, but am afraid for her at this point. She can't seem to eat well with them. She tells me they are hard and uncomfortable. Does anyone here know of someone who is really really good making some good denture's that I could pass on for her. I feel so bad, I think she's depressed as well. But she had no choice to have her teeth pulled because of her infection problems. Thanks for any suggestions.
Sorry for your friends troubles you have a 110% chance your first set of dentures will not fit long ( immediate dentures) due to swelling going down generally a cheaper set. As for spaces you can put spaces twist the teeth and basically due what ever you please. Teeth come in different shade, molds made of acrylic to porcelain. There are some denture mills that will show you a piece of crap for a price then show you a nice looking denture for a lot more when the cost to make is not much more.

Advise her to see a board certified prosthodontist in her area. They have additional training in denture fabrication.

There are many general dentists that are highly skilled at making removable dentures. Some, not so much. It is difficult for patients to know.

The good ones typically don't advertise.

Another option is for her to contact her local dental society. Many have referral lists of qualified dentists.

My sister "accidentally" threw away my mother's first pair of dentures (not hard just work in a nursing home. Of coarse there was a lot of guilt put on my sister by my mom until she got her second pair. In the end my sister did mom a favor because the second pair fit way better then the first pair.
