Cast Titanium Mesh Frameworks
A titanium mesh framework is used in denture construction to achieve lightness and strength and to prevent breakage.
Titanium is the highest quality material in use for denture frameworks. It is stronger than other framework materials, it doesn’t add bulk to the finished denture (often, it results in a thinner denture), and it is lighter in the mouth than dentures created in all acrylic or using other framework materials.
To create a cast titanium mesh framework, we begin with an impression of a patient’s oral structures. We provide the impression to Centre Dentaire Concorde, a Quebec-based laboratory specializing in cast titanium frameworks. The framework is formed to the patient’s impression, then incorporated into the construction of the denture. This process ensures that the framework and resulting denture will conform perfectly to the individual shape of a person’s mouth.
Strengthening Fiber Force® Mesh
FibreForce is a fiberglass lightcure material used in denture construction.
As strong as metal (though not titanium), it provides a useful alternative to metal to strengthen acrylic for repairs or in new denture construction.
Whereas metal is visible from within denture acrylic, FiberForce is also translucent when in place.
Patient Name Additions
As needed, we are able to add a patient’s name to the denture acrylic. This can be useful for persons living in multi-patient facilities, to assist with denture identification, and for prevention of denture loss.
Gingival customization is a process of painting or staining the denture acrylic to enhance the natural-looking appearance or aesthetic of the final denture. It adds individual characterization to your denture.
Custom Tooth Staining
Similar to gingival customization, custom tooth staining enhances the natural characteristic of a denture’s teeth. We achieve this custom result by hand-painting or colouring your denture’s teeth to best match with your unique appearance.
