      Hi All,
      I'm looking for input as to what is the best or most aesthetic, most fracture resistant denture teeth and base material.
      Thanks for your response.

      Can I please ask you why?

      Teeth, for fracture resistance you can go to porcelain for pure hardness, or one of the nano-compoiste types as Doris suggested.

      For acyrlic, this is almost going to be a religious discussion on the level of infralapsarianism vs. supralapsarianism.
      Pick a metric to cling to and workability level for the processing method.

      Sure, I'm working on digital production for dentures and wanted input for what you all felt would make a great high-end
      denture. There will be no packing so shrinkage while curing will not be a factor in this workflow.

      Thanks! What I assumed, but I dislike assumptions. Very interested to see what differentiation you put on the process.

      Ya, it a fun project. I'm looking into both high end and cost effective workflows and production methods.
      Just trying to figure out what base material and teeth to use for the high-end solution.

      We have several good lines of teeth stocked in my lab, I really am over stocked on teeth and I think its because I get bored with the same molds over and over.

      I will say my top 4 teeth that we use today in no particular order

      Phonares II

      I hesitate with Phonares, Phonares II supposed to be improved and may work.
      I also hesitate when I see 'fracture resistance' without considering wear resistant.
      Most of the time they are opposing properties.
      Porcelain will not wear, but will chip easily. And bond is non-existent, hence they need
      backings/retention pins. Teeth may not break but what's the use if they keep debonding?
      We used to joke, give the patient paying most money on implant prostheses the cheapest
      teeth so they will wear but not break, except there is inherent reason (possibly wisdom)
      behind it. John plugging PE for good reasons - they look nice, but less abrasive
      and may stay longer than Phonares!
      I suggest going with something middle of the road instead of the prestige lines and the
      headaches that come with them.

      is possible to have a few popular options to select from...? different clinicians/technicians seem to have their own personal preferences. There are some great high quality options to select from in the teeth department as previously mentioned - phonares, Enigma life, physiodens.... Clinicians and technicians tend to float toward moulds they like the aesthetics of, one case it might be Enigma, the next might be Phonares. Same goes with acrylics, there are a lot of materials that are very comparable technically - it comes down to preference of shade, tone, workability etc. I think a few combinations it the way to go, people like options
