I recently went to the Conover,NC office of Affordable Dentures for a replacement denture. I had my old dentures with me so they could have looked at those to see what my individual needs were, but they were not concerned with my individual needs!
My original denture was made by a real dentist. I wasn't seen by the actually dentist at Affordable Dentures, only a Lab Tech. The trays used to make the impression were 2 sizes too large, I have some tearing on the corners of my mouth because of it. As a result the dentures are too large to be worn comfortably and do not look natural.
The dentures force me to hold my jaw in an unnatural and uncomfortable position, if I relax my jaw the lower denture sticks out further than the upper on. I've worn dentures for 16 years and never had any real problems, when I tried to tell the Technician what needed to be done, he basically told me I just needed to adjust to the new ones. The "dentures" they made changed my profile to what I can only describe as that of a bulldog, and if I wear them I have no upper lip.
I wasted an entire day and $650.00 of plastic that I can only carry in my purse. I would say that Affordable Dentures is the Burger King of dentistry, but BK has the slogan "Have It Your Way", and that isn't what you get from Affordable Dentures.
It's assembly line, one-size-fits-all, drive thru dentistry. These people are not concerned about the patients that come to their office, anyone that reads this, save your time and your money, DO NOT get anything done at Affordable Dentures.
Monetary Loss: $650.
