How to make false teeth at home

Here's how you can make your own false teeth for home movies, Halloween parties or just freaky good times. You can make any kind of theatrical teeth you can imagine for cheap! It's more cost effective and rewarding than buying an expensive teeth-moulding kit.

Make your mould. Mix the moulding material and pour it onto the tray. Sit in an upright position and insert the tray in your mouth. Wait for three minutes for the mould to harden. Gently remove the tray from your mouth.

Mix the agar material and pour it into the mould. Put it in the fridge and wait an hour for it to harden. You can easily remove the teeth by dipping the entire mould in water for ten seconds.

Your agar teeth are now hard enough to shape. Use a scalpel to carve your creation into any kind of teeth you want. Make vampire fangs or nerd teeth. You can even start a business creating false teeth!


Most teeth-whitening kits you can find at the drugstore will have dental trays. Do not use metal trays, since the metal can cause gum pain. Alginate moulding mixture is available on Agar-agar powder can be found on
