flippers

Many patients looking for a quicker, or more affordable option than implants or crowns choose to have a custom flipper made. They are an attractive option and cost effective.

features:

Flippers are an affordable and convenient way to cover the gaps created from the loss of natural teeth. The teeth come in a variety of shades to took as natural as possible with the patient’s smile.

We aim to make our flippers blend seamlessly in the mouth.

process:

Flippers are designed digitally by our removable technicians. Once the design is complete they are either milled or 3D printed in-house. The teeth are then bonded to the base, where the details are refined and the flipper polished.

ideal applications:

Flippers are a great option for patients who:

  • have a missing tooth or teeth, and wish to prevent the surrounding teeth from shifting
  • choose to have a compromised tooth pulled rather than have a crown placed
  • can not afford the cost of an implant or crown
  • need an immediate fix rather than the long time frame associated with implants
