How to Make Acrylic Teeth
- 1). Fill a dental tray with alginate and cast the set of teeth you are recreating in it. Alginate is a special dental material that does not get completely solid. Remove the alginate after three minutes of setting and place it in water to keep it from shrinking.
- 2). Mix some Ultracal and pour it in to the mold. Tap the mold to get rid of any formed air bubbles and then allow it to sit for 45 minutes. Separate the molds.
- 3). Fix any rough edges with a coping saw and cut away the excess with a utility knife.
- 4). Color the teeth with acrylic paint. Pour the paint into your mold and then dip the teeth in it. Use white paint for the teeth and a pinkish-red color paint for the gumline. Sand down any rough spots to finish the teeth.
