A denture making business or denture/dental lab designs and manufactures dentures or false teeth for the replacement of natural teeth.

This can be both a B2B (business to business) business where you manufacture on behalf of dentists or a B2C (business to consumer) business where you work directly with the client. With the B2B business you handle the denture making on behalf of dentists, they will do the impressions and send it to you. The B2C business you have to do the impressions and manufacture. You could do the impressions and outsource the manufacture in a B2C business however there might not be enough profit to make it viable as a full-time business.

The B2C business is often found in lower-income areas and is often operated from home, where the person will come for their fittings etc. There are various aspects that make this a far more lucrative business targeting a lower-income area. People will less money don’t go as often to the dentist as they should and you will find more people needing dentures in lower-income areas for this reason. What also makes this popular in lower-income areas is costs. If you go to the dentist, the dentist simply outsources it and puts a profit on, people that make and sell dentures direct are up to 50% cheaper than dentists. They not outsourcing it, they don’t have high expenses, so they can far undercut a traditional dentist.
