Here's how to make a model of your teeth to send to a custom teeth maker.

Step 1: Obtain Materials

I got most of my materials from Pearl Paint in Canal Street... which is in NYC but u can probably get them at any art store or anywhere you can get supplies for sculptures

1. Hollywood Impressions: Dental Grade - $12.59
2. PermaStone 28 oz. - $6.05
3. Styrafoam cups - free - got from work
4. Plastic Spoon - free - Chinese restaurant
5. Hand file and knife
6. Hand drill with plastic fork or electric drill with wire whisk

Possible Alternatives:
Alginate from dental supply stores
Any other plaster or two part mixing plastic
Mouth guard or teeth tray from dental supply store
Very cool! I've always seen my <a href="http://www.luvmydentalcare.com/about_us.html" rel="nofollow">dentists lindsay</a> do this but I've never tried it for myself!
This is such a good idea! I thought only a <a href="http://www.chinookdental.com" rel="nofollow">dentist calgary</a> would be able to do something like this.
That is really cool. I wont have to ask for help from my <a href="http://vafamilydentistry.com" rel="nofollow">cosmetic dentist sterling, va</a> anymore. I've wanted to do something like this for a long time. Thank you for this post.
Can you believe that I've never thought about how to make a mold of my own teeth? I guess in the deep recesses of my mind I assumed that if I paid my dentist enough, I could get my <a href="http://www.riversidedentalcentre.ca" rel="nofollow">dentist</a> to do it. I could really use this around Halloween. Thanks for the guide!
haha no problemo :D
Cool! Now I can make a fake retainer
That last pic in step two is hilarious. But ignoring that I have to say that this is a very good instructable. I really want to do this so I can make a set of fangs.
hehe twas a nasty lil step... stuff tastes blah
so where do you send the molds to get the vampire teeth?
well there are a few different places, search online... here's one place, not the place I got them, but it looks legitimate<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.makeupmania.com/Details/CustomTeeth.cfm">Makeup Mania</a><br/><br/>I got them in a place in NYC (New York City) called &quot;Halloween Adventure&quot;. You can ask them to make the dental impression or ask them that u can provide your own and it'll cost less. <br/>
I have two sets of these type of teeth impressions (my dentist obviously didn't want to store them so he sent them home with me). I'm wanting to do something crafty with these for Halloween. Any suggestions? I appreciate the input!
umm... make some fake teeth... iono
By join them I mean in the back to the top teeth are not separate from the bottom teeth, Both rows would be joined. like a real set of teeth. And Ideas?
hmm... not exactly sure how I would do that... mayb add plaster to the back to bond them together?... not too sure...
Im looking to make a mold of my teeth for my design class. How would you join the plaster teeth made above? m very interest in this project. Would OOMOO cast work better than plaster for a stronger hold? Also, where can I find the dental cast?
I'm not exactly sure what you meant by "join the plaster teeth". I've seen a video for this OOMOO cast thing and I don't see it couldn't work. I have no idea if it'll be stronger, but since it is plastic I'm sure it will. The dental cast I found at a store called Pearl Paint, they had a section solely to molding and casting.
Well sine you have an instructible for this I guess I won't add one even though I use a diffrent approach to this. Good instructible and nice lay out. I've been making these for holloween for many years and for people that broke their dentures. If you like I can add my version on down the line to compair the difrence. GWJax
fine by me :D
Great When I get some more monamer for the teeth and gum resin power I,ll get another instructable going. Jax
this has me curious. would you mind letting me in on the process you use?
It takes a little bit of time to explain it, I'm ordering more acrylic monomer when I get it in I'll post an instructable on how to make a complete custom set of bubba teeth with stains and all. Jax
sweet and thanks for replying
good instructable and go korea! one of my favorite movies came from there(oldboy)
i've seen this on make: blog anyway, still a nice tutorial. thanks
yeah i saw that... i was working on a "How to make custom teeth" till they did that... so I just decided to post up at least how to make the mold...
Can I chew pickles with these teeth?
umm... well... all I made was the mold of my teeth... can't actually wear them... the one who made the vampire teeth for me told me not to eat any food, reasons unknown... i guess u can chew pickles with the teeth mold... :P
