It is possible to make false teeth or dentures at home without the help of a dentist, according to Dental Services. Those interested in making their own dentures typically do it with the use of a do-it-yourself denture kit.

Do-it-yourself denture kits are available online from a variety of retailers, and making dentures this way is cheaper than going to the dentist. The kits come with helpful instructions, and step-by-step videos on the process are also available online. Although individuals interested in making their own dentures can pay for the necessary equipment without purchasing a kit, this approach often requires sending an impression of the teeth to a professional denture maker, explains Dental Services.
