Dentures can be an overwhelming process especially when it’s your first time. Woodside Denture Centre in Airdrie, Alberta has created a step by step visual to allow you to understand and appreciate the process of the making of your dentures. The one large difference is that we have an in-house laboratory! We do not send your dentures away like most dentists but have our technicians on hand for every step. This allows quick corrections and less allowance for error. We trust our step by step visual will put you and your family at ease as you begin the journey towards your first pair of dentures.
